The Eternal City has an almost uninterrupted history over the past two millennia. After being at the epicentre of much of Europe, Asia and Africa during the Roman Empire, Rome later became the religious capital of the world as the “headquarters” of the Roman Catholic Church. During both the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the city was one of the artistic capitals of the world, and the rich legacy of these times can still be seen today. Built on seven hills, Rome is home to world-famous attractions such as the Colosseum, the Vatican City (including St Peter’s Basilica), and the Roman Forum, among thousands of other monuments and sites of interest. Rome is also known for its culinary traditions, with dishes such as “Carbonara” and “Amatriciana” which are now served around the world.
