The Coliseum and the historic cobbled streets of Italy’s capital have been transporting visitors back in time for over two millennia.
This sun-soaked Italian metropolis’ cultural essence is vividly reflected in the countless places, thousands of churches and the Vatican City – a country within the city, nestled in the heart of Rome. The Holy See is a must-see not only because of Michelangelo and Raphael’s colourful, kaleidoscopic paintings. When in Rome do as the four millions Romans do. That means savour the delicious taste of spaghetti alle vongole (with clams), experience the Metropolitan underground and explore this living museum like a local.
