“Rome was a poem pressed into service as a city”
When American writer Anatole Broyard wrote these words, he was not exaggerating. Rome’s architecture alone would be enough to guarantee its position as one of the world’s truly breath-taking cities. Yet Rome is more than just buildings, it is a spirit. It is, as they say, La Dolce Vita. To walk any street in Italy’s capital is to be overwhelmed by the beauty of over 2500 years of history.
Experience Italian Food and Wine
Beginning its life all those years ago, it is little wonder that Rome has seen more change than most cities, and yet the ancient is still proudly on display. Stand under the dome of the Pantheon and know you follow in the footsteps of Emperors, or climb the steps into the Colosseum like so many thousands of bloodthirsty spectators once did. There are few places in the world where you can reach out and touch the past as you can here, and fewer still that wear their ancient achievements so proudly. It truly is The Eternal City.
If Rome was not enough on its own, within its centre lay a whole other country. Vatican City, the smallest country in the world, is the only UNESCO World Heritage Country in existence. Home to the Pope and centre of world Catholicism it has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, and whether your visit is for spiritual purposes or simply to gaze on the beauty of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel it is an experience you will never forget.

Nowhere else on Earth can you hear a mass given by the Pope, eat like a king and walk the streets of the forum known to Julius Caesar in a day.
From the majesty of St Peter’s Basillica to the romance of The Trevi Fountain, you’ll be hard pushed to find a Bucket List that doesn’t include at least one iconic Rome landmark, and regardless of whether your interest was piqued by the stories of Caesar or the films of Fellini, The Eternal City is will not disappoint.
