One Big Open-Air Museum
Rome (Roma) is an intoxicating mix. The everlasting traces of Caput Mundi. The grand seat of the Catholic church. A bastion of arts and culture. Vibrant streets abuzz with people. You’re about to fall fervently in love!
Rome in a Nutshell
Most tourists head straight to the centro storico (historic centre) for the main attractions. Indeed, the entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most famous of all is, of course, the Colosseo (Colosseum). This is perhaps the most iconic building in all of Italy! It’s also a symbol of what the city represents historically. Centuries and centuries of pivotal and world-changing history through the Ancient Etruscans, Greeks and Romans.
Then there’s Rome’s importance as the headquarters of the Catholic church. Not only can you find the world’s smallest country, The Vatican City, here, but several other important religious buildings. The Four Major Basilicas and their holy doors are also UNESCO sites. The final stop on the many ancient pilgrimage routes, the Cammini di Fede is Rome.
Besides the many fashion brands who house their flagship stores in the city, you’ll also find some of Italy’s most unique cuisine here. From Ancient Roman cuisine to traditional Jewish Artichokes in the ghetto. Rome will fill your senses and woo your soul!
