Roma. The Eternal City. Whatever you call Rome, it stands alone as Italy’s most visited destination. The third most populated city in the European Union, Rome boasts ancient sites, yet has a modern flair — an exhilarating mix of the Old World and the new.

Rome’s must-see attractions include the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Of course, within the city limits of Rome lies an independent country: Vatican City, the Roman Catholic Church headquarters and the only current example of a country inside a city.

With its Renaissance architecture, ancient ruins, and works by Michelangelo, Rome is a vibrant destination offering spectacular examples of human achievement. Visitors wandering through this glorious city have so much to discover!
