An extraordinary, multi-faceted city.
A dynamic destination where history and architecture mingle with art, music, fashion, film and design. A unique place to discover.
Rome was the capital of the Roman Empire and the cradle of Western civilisation. Millennia of history have made it an open-air museum, consisting of a layering of historical and architectural remains, many of which remain undiscovered. Rome is today a tourist destination of excellence, without equal in the world. In fact, 12 Unesco monuments are concentrated in the city of Rome alone, including the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre in the world, and the Pantheon, a perfectly preserved temple with the largest unreinforced concrete dome ever built.
Rome not only represents the history of the West, but also a cultural centre where art and architecture permeate every street, building or church. In the city of Rome, it is possible to access some of the most visited museums in the world, such as the Colosseum archaeological park or the Vatican Museums.
