A heady mix of haunting sights, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy’s Eternal City is one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring capitals.

Rome is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It charms visitors with irresistible food, amazing architecture, diverse scenery and unparalleled art. Rome is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with close to 3,000 years of globally influential art and architecture on display. It is rich in history, beauty and culture and is home to the animated, good humoured Romans, who live to eat, drink wine (and espresso), and hold forth on everything from politics to soccer, fashion, food, and films. Ancient ruins such as the Roman Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. The Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, boasts St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.
