Visiting Rome - The Eternal City

Rome is the capital of Italy. For many, the word Rome has a primarily historical connotation.
Rome was for almost 1000 years, the most important and rich capital of the Western world. After the Roman Empire began to decline, however, Rome was left behind by the Eastern Roman capital called Constantinople.

Thus, today anyone who goes to Rome, first remembers those who lost their lives in Roman arenas, the great wars of the world, and of the fact that they are stepping on a land that can almost no longer fit so much history on it.

If we start talking about the tourist attractions of Rome, then I hardly know where to I start. Despite the fact that Rome was involved in World War I, it was one of the few European capitals that remained standing in good condition.
Thus, today's visitors of Rome, would do well to find accommodations, unpack, and being an unforgettable trip in Rome.

The main attraction is the architecture. The Colosseum was built for 60,000 spectators and is the largest amphitheater in the Roman Empire. Follow the Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trajan's Column, catacombs, Circus Maximus, the Baths of Caracalla, the Mausoleum of Augustus, the Arch of Constantine, the Pyramid of Cestius.

Of course, we can not forget the museums and galleries, among which are the National Museum of Rome, Museum of Roman Civilization, the National Etruscan Museum, Capitoline Museum, Borghese Gallery, and National Gallery of Medieval Art.

Have a wonderful vacation in Rome!
