Rome
The Essential
Highly recommended
A grandiose, hectic city with a village atmosphere, the religious and political capital of an Italy united later than its neighbours, a chaos of Ancient ruins, a mix of architectural styles and a huge open-air museum, Rome is a fascinating blend of old and new. This city is the centre of Italy's political power and the tertiary sector, as well as a magnet for crowds of tourists and pilgrims. To really get a feel for Rome, take time to wander and explore this exciting city.
