Introducing Rome

Immortalized in books, movies, plays, and concertos, the Eternal City of Rome needs no introduction. Draped over seven hills, Rome astounds and humbles with its rich architectural legacy, iconic monuments, eerie catacombs, and divine artistic treasures. The fulcrum of the Roman Empire, the city was founded in 753 BC and became Italy’s capital in 1871. Spliced in two by the River Tiber, what remains of ancient Rome lies to the west of the River, while the most lauded sights reside on the east. But, for all the crumbling ruins, Rome breathes life. The essence of the city, indeed the country, is best appreciated by lingering in the city’s theatrical squares, sampling blood-red Chianti in a local bar, and throwing yourself in blind to Rome’s madly glorious back streets. The Pantheon, the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, Julius Caesar’s Roman Forum, Michelangelos’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the Trevi fountain under the light of a full moon…trying to experience Rome’s ancient wonders in one visit is an overwhelming endeavor.
