Rome was once the capital city of the world. Getting to know and discovering Rome is like leafing through a history book; each page is connected to the other by a series of events that left their mark. This is Rome, the “Eternal City” in the eyes of visitors; it includes a series of traces to follow in order to reconstruct the course of history.
First stop in the heart of Rome is the solemn Flavian amphitheatre, better known as the Colosseum, where the gladiator games took place; Via dei Fori Imperiali leads along the most important archeological itinerary, a unique set of temples, basilicas, public and sacred buildings and the Roman Forum standing out of the surrounding lush vegetation. The archaeological finds and highly valuable works that were discovered during the excavations are kept in the Capitoline Museums, on the Campidoglio, the acropolis of ancient Rome.

Not far from there is the Theatre of Marcellus and the famous Mouth of Truth, a marble carving representing the face of a faun near the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin; this mouth, according to legend, swallows the hands of liars.
The tour of the city continues following the banks of the Tiber to Castel Sant’Angelo, a mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian, a shelter for popes and a prison.
From there, taking the spectacular Via della Conciliazione, we reach the Vatican City, the seat of the Papal State. Here we can admire the famous Piazza San Pietro, with the 16th-Century colonnade by Bernini and the magnificent Sistine Chapel, with its precious Last Judgement, another 16th-Century masterpiece, this time by Michelangelo.

Rome is the main seat of State institutions and we certainly cannot forget its buildings, basilicas and piazzas, like Piazza di Spagna with the famous Spanish steps of Trinità dei Monti, Piazza Farnese and Piazza Navona with Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers, not to mention the 18th-Century Trevi Fountain, where tourists throw coins and express their wish to return to the Eternal City.

In the environs of Rome, the Roman Castles are a big attraction to those who love cheerful trips to the country to find a cool refuge in hot summer nights. Ostia, on the contrary, besides being a well-known sea resort on Lazio's coast, encloses the ruins of Ostia Antica (ancient Ostia), the best example of a Roman town that we can still observe today.

Mentioning everything you can see and do in Rome and its environs becomes an unending list of recommendations; this city knows how to satisfy the demands of its visitors. If you wish to get to know it deeply, though, you should come into contact with the people and visit the markets, like Porta Portese, the flea-market, or the districts of Trastevere, Testaccio, San Lorenzo and Campo de’ Fiori, where young people can enjoy the most lively and trendy side of the city, ass in all the other European capitals.
