Beloved of Caesars, Popes, artists and the style-conscious, the eternal city of Rome retains its magic and sense of wonder, despite the appalling traffic. Whether you are looking to see where gladiators fought to the death or where masters of the Renaissance worked, or just want to sample scrumptious Italian food, this ancient city will not leave you disappointed.

One of the best areas to walk around is the Forum, which is the former centre of Imperial Rome. Here you can visit the Temple of the Vestal Virgins; see the Senate where Julius Caesar was murdered, and travel to the tomb of Romulus, Rome's founder. Nearby is Palatine Hill where the emperors resided, and the still awe-inspiring Coliseum where men and beasts met their deaths before baying spectators.

By car you can discover: the Appian Way, the catacombs, the historic Lazio countryside, magnificent Tivoli Gardens, and Castelli Romani (walled hill towns) which dot the region.

Rome is defined by the river Tiber and the seven hills on which it is built. The Tiber flows through Rome before entering the Tyrrhenian Sea. It was named the Tiberius after the Emperor Tiberius, who drowned in it, and is 405kms long and 20m deep at its greatest depth.

Rome's early history was dominated by the Roman Empire; its sometimes great, often mad emperors who controlled much of the Mediterranean world made Rome a powerful and rich city of over one million inhabitants. Following a period of decline after the Empire's fall, Rome became the residence of the Pope and the centre of Catholic Christianity, an importance demonstrated by the splendour of the Vatican's buildings and artworks. It became the united Italy's capital in 1866 and survived widespread destruction during WWII, when it was liberated by Allied forces in 1944.

To get to Rome by car, take the Autostrada del Sol, which is the main road artery linking northern Italy to the southern portion of the country. Termini railway station serves the rest of the country regularly and comfortably. Rome's main airport is Leonardi di Vinci, which is served frequently by international carriers.
