Rome, the “eternal city”, is so-called because it is a place of great beauty, contrast, and life. Rome is an eclectic city: the religious world centre of the Catholic Church, the fabulous ruins of the centre of the Roman Empire, and modern, bustling Rome. All three seem incongruous, yet they live inside and beside each other with great ease. You will soon realize Rome was build to rule and dominate the world. Everything is on a massive scale, solid and “eternal”.
