Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Welcome to Rome and Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vatican Museums, ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, and pause for some serene contemplation at Pantheon.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Rome journey planner.

In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond.
