Walking through the historical capital of Rome is akin to walking through an open-air museum. Remnants of the mighty civilisation that once thrived as the Roman Empire live in every niggling detail, from crumbling stonework on public streets to masterful artworks in the corners of ancient churches.Today, the destination fondly referred to as the Eternal City, is the political seat of Italy, the capital of Catholicism and a mecca for history and culture fiends the world over.
It's a place where you can walk in the footsteps of gladiators, verse yourself in Renaissance and Baroque art and delight in real Italian pizza and gelato while people-watching inside open piazzas.
Our advice? Start you day off with an (Italian) espresso and equip yourself with our guide and prepare to wind back the years for the journey of a lifetime.
