How do you begin to describe the Eternal City? Rome is a world-class capital by any standard, and unique as it takes in the Vatican City, a self-governing state and the heart of the Roman Catholic church. Wherever you look there are reminders of a glorious and sometimes scandalous past.
The magnificent ancient monuments, the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the forums are still part of everyday life and make Rome a living museum. Climb the 137 Spanish Steps to gaze over the narrow, cobbled streets crammed with Renaissance and Baroque buildings, fine palaces, countless churches and famous fountains.
Visit one of the many pavement trattorias and watch the world go by or scour the elegant boutiques with Rome’s most avid shoppers. There’s so much to see that you need to pace yourself and not try to cram too much in, but you must cross the River Tiber to enter the Vatican state, home to the Pope, to see St Peter’s. The Vatican complex houses 10 museums and masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel and St Paul’s Basilica. If you feel like taking a risk try putting your hand in the Mouth of Truth to test your sincerity, or throw a coin into the Trevi fountain. Either way you are sure to make a return visit to this wonderful city.
