Rome is one of the most popular destinations in not just Italy, but the whole of Europe. The capital city of Italy, Rome has a history spanning 28 centuries, the home of the once great Roman Empire. This long and rich history can be seen in the many impressive landmarks throughout the city, including the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and most famous of all, the Roman Colosseum. Rome is also unique, the only city in the world to contain another country within its borders: Vatican City, where you can explore the grand St. Peter’s Basilica, the centre of Roman Catholicism. As you explore this ancient city, don’t forget to enjoy the finest and most authentic Italian cuisine, from your standard pizzas and pastas, to the sweet gelatos and tiramisu.
