Rome, the Eternal City, is the capital and largest city of Italy and the Lazio region metropolitan city.
It is famous for being the home of the ancient Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (the sweet life), the Vatican City and Three Coins in the Fountain.
Rome has been a millennia-long center of power, culture, and religion.
It has been the cradle of one of the globe’s greatest civilizations ever, and has exerted a huge influence over the world history in its roughly 2,800 years of existence.
The historic centre of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With wonderful palaces, thousand-year-old churches, grand Romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage.
At the same time, you can breathe a cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe’s and the world’s most visited, famous, influential and beautiful capitals.
Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene.
Awarded as and is also seen as a shopping heaven, tourists perceive it as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy’s oldest jewelry and clothing establishments were founded in the city).
With so many sights and things to do, Rome can truly be classified a “global city”.
Rome has 2.8 million inhabitants while its metropolitan area is home to around 4.2 million.
Architecturally and culturally, Rome has some contrasts.
You may walk in squares with pompously huge majestic palaces, avenues and basilicas, yet surrounded by tiny alleyways, little churches and old houses.
You may also find yourself going from a grand palace and tree-lined elegant boulevard, into a small and cramped Medieval-like street.
Rome is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — have a look at each of them.
