Built on seven hills, Rome is an unforgettable encyclopedia of living history. Everywhere you look, you will be overwhelmed by the powerful reminder that ancient Rome was the center of the civilized world. A city of contrasts, the magic of Rome lies in its talent to blend the old with the new. While empires have risen and fallen, Rome remains as vibrant as ever. The Eternal City is filled with things to do and see and after your visit, you will be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. Rome is certainly a city where you will get your cultural fill but be sure to allow time for more self-indulgent concerns, eating, drinking wine, basking in the sunshine and enjoying open air concerts, ballet, opera performances, live rock and jazz.
