Life in Rome

Rome (Roma, in Italian) is the capital city of Italy, located in the region of Lazio, halfway down Italy's western coast.  It is Italy's largest and most populous city, with more than 2.7 million residents.

Rome offers a wide range of interesting things to do, thanks to its unique wealth of history, culture and art. Merely walking through its cobblestoned alleyways is a trip through history.

During the day, visitors can enjoy Rome’s most famous sites, such as the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, and Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps. But there are also ancient secrets and modern charms to be discovered in the narrow streets of the city center.  

Rome is also a lively city at night, full of places to go, from the old Trastevere neighborhood to the very popular neighborhoods of Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona and Testaccio, just to name a few.

Art is everywhere in Rome. Aside from the well-known treasures of the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica, collections are also housed at the Borghese Gallery and the National Museum of Modern Art.  In addition, many churches and cathedrals hide precious masterpieces.
