Rome one of the most beautiful and historical cities around the world.

It's a large, busy metropolis that lives in the here and now, yet there's no other place on earth where you'll encounter such powerful evocations of a long and spectacular past, from the Colosseum to St. Peter's. Indeed, more than Florence, more than Venice, Rome is Italy's treasure storehouse. Here, the ancient Romans originated what we now call Western Civilization; centuries later Michelangelo painted the Sistine Ceiling, Bernini sculpted baroque nymphs and naiads that still dance in marble fountains, and Fellini filmed "La Dolce Vita".

The whole historic centre was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO

Today, ancient Rome rubs shoulders with the medieval and the modern runs into the Renaissance. Be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum. Rome will seduce you and it will hardly leave you indifferent. Modern and old, past and present go side by side, all the time.

The city is full of culture, religion and history. Rome has been the seat of the Papacy since the 1st century AD and in the 8th century it became the capital of the Papal States. Rome has been for centuries the heart of the Roman Catholic religion.

Surrounded by many monuments, palaces, basilicas, piazzas, churches, aqueducts, fountains and old houses, Rome shows the different styles of Architecture used during years: Ancient Architecture, Medieval Architecture, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, Neoclassicism, Fascist architecture.

Besides of its incredible architecture and Art, Rome is also considered one of the fashion capitals and a cosmopolitan city, it has stores of the most renowned brands such as Bulgari, Fendi, Chanel, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Versace.
