Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.

Once the hub of the Renaissance, Florence is still a city marked by outstanding cultural and artistic splendor.
