The majestic metropolis of Rome deserves its reputation as one of the world’s most popular cities thanks to its rich cultural heritage, outstanding food and established tourist infrastructure. Stunning architectural sites can be found all of the ‘Eternal City’, with the Pantheon, the Roman Forum and the breathtaking Colosseum providing some of the most significant highlights. Meanwhile, the independent enclave of Vatican City houses the beautiful St Peter’s Basilica and is the global centre for the Roman Catholic faith. Art lovers will enjoy seeing works by Caravaggio and Raphael at the Galleria Borghese, whilst authentic Italian cuisine can be found in the plentiful trattorias which line the streets of this intriguing city.
