Discover Rome

The capital of Italy is one of the main destinations in Europe and the world.

In addition to the spiritual capital, the city is a true open air museum. To name just one of Italy's postal cards, the Colosseum is one of the main monuments visited.

Rome, the Eternal City

The greatest symbol of the glory and power of yore, the Roman Empire is proof of the resistance of the foundations of civilization against attacks by barbaric and often merciless opponents. The glory of Rome and the Roman Empire crossed the Mediterranean, advanced through ancient Asia Minor (present-day Turkey) and radiated its power from Byzantium, then Constantinople (and later, Istanbul, in the modern period).
