There is no city that appeals to our imagination more than Rome. The Eternal City was the epicentre of power in the Western world for many centuries, resulting in Rome now being one big open-air museum that tells the city's story. For those who haven't had the chance to visit the city yet, go there! For those who have already been, go back, and go back again. Every trip to Rome is a journey through history.

Places to visit in Rome

During the era of the Roman Empire, the Forum Romarum was the centre of power. It is now an archaeological park consisting of the remains of a square with several temples, triumphal arches, columns and trading houses. The Colosseum is another overwhelming structure. At the height of the Roman Empire, more than 70,000 Roman citizens could ‘enjoy’ bloody scenes in the city's largest amphitheatre: gladiators fought wild animals and convicted criminals were put to death in theatrical performances. The Pantheon is regarded by many the best-preserved ancient monument in Rome. The magnificent architecture has been a source of inspiration to many people over the centuries. The dome has an 9-metre opening at the top, giving a truly spectacular incidence of light inside.

Discover Rome

The independent city-state of Vatican City is seen as the global centre of Catholicism. TV images don't do the city enough justice, and walking among all the splendour yourself sheds a whole new light on it. Everywhere you look, you will look with amazement: the Vatican Gardens, St Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace with its highlight, the Sistine Chapel, are all equally impressive. Sculptures, paintings, maps and frescoes are on constant display, each one more beautiful than the last. Those who want to relax after taking in all these wonders can visit Villa Borghese. This stylish villa features an art gallery with works by Caravaggio. The surrounding park is a green oasis that radiates a sense of calm and tranquillity. But you shouldn't leave the city without first tossing a coin over your shoulder into the Trevi Fountain.
