With a history covering 28 centuries, one-of-a-kind treasures and views and a charm impossible to resist, Rome is a constant surprise, a key stage of every Italian “Grand tour”.
The historic center, hemmed in by the Aurelian walls (to the left of the River Tiber) and the Janiculum walls (to the right of the Tiber), contains 25,000 environmental and archaeological points of interest.
Legend holds that Romulus and Remus founded Rome in 753 B.C. – the mythical image of the two brothers suckled by the she-wolf, other than the Colosseum, has become the iconographic symbol for the Capital.
Yet what has truly made Rome the legendary city that it is is its history: the epicenter of the Roman Republic, then the Roman Empire’s hub for political and cultural life, and finally, in the 4th Century, the realm of Christianity.
