This city has been a millennium-long center of culture, religion and power. Rome has had a strong influence across the globe in its twenty-seven hundred years of existence.

Visitors enjoy seeing Rome’s monumental buildings, such as the Colosseum, which was built when emperors like Nero ruled the Roman Empire. There is also the impressive Pantheon which was created more than eighteen hundred years ago. A must see for most tourists is the popular Trevi Fountain which is one of the most beautiful fountains in the city.
