According to tradition Rome was founded in 753 BC by Romulus and Remus. During the centuries it has been the capital of the Roman Empire “Caput Mundi” and the heart of the Catholic Church housing the Vatican City. It became the capital of the Italian Republic in 1946. If you do not have enough time to stay there a few days, do not miss the opportunity to visit it together with our drivers who will show you the main sights of the city. Its historic center, containing overlapping testimonies of almost three millennia, has been listed as World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Because of the enormous number of palaces, churches, temples, fountains, squares and works of art it is difficult to count them all, but we must mention: Piazza di Spagna with the famous steps of ‘Trinita dei Monti’, from the top of which there is a beautiful view of Rome, the nearby Via Condotti (known for shopping), the Fontana di Trevi, Piazza Navona surrounded by magnificent buildings with a beautiful central fountain designed by Bernini, the Pantheon, Piazza Venezia with its impressive ‘Altar of the Fatherland’, the Colosseum, the ruins of ancient Rome, Castel Sant’Angelo. Do not overlook the beauty of the Vatican City with the monumental church of St. Peter, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museum.
