Ancient Rome has arguably had the greatest influence on the development of the western world, and as the cradle of this glorious ancient civilisation, Rome is overflowing with historical and archaeological marvels to explore. This thriving city has a dazzling array of museums, statues, galleries and mosaics amongst the grand, iconic monuments such as the Roman Forum and Colosseum. The Vatican City, powerhouse of the Catholic Church, is rich with artistic masterpieces and holy relics. Throughout the city there’s a seemingly endless array of restaurants and cafés in which to enjoy some authentic Italian cuisine in after sightseeing. If you’re looking for extraordinary heritage and culture, the ‘Eternal City’ never disappoints.

Attractions:

  • Trevi Fountain
    Fountain-di-Trevi-in-Rome-Italy

    The history of Rome’s largest fountain can be traced back to the year 19 BC, and there’s a curious myth about this beautifully crafted Renaissance water feature: throw in one coin to return to Rome; two coins to fall in love with an attractive Italian; and three coins to marry the person that you’ve met. Around one million euros are collected up from the fountain annually and donated to charitable causes.

  • Trajan's Market

    Considered to be the first covered shopping mall in recorded history, this impressive multi-levelled market was built in the early 2nd century AD. The six levels constructed from red brick and concrete contained around 150 shops and apartments. Visit the Imperial Forum Museum to learn the history of this grand complex, with fascinating exhibitions that bring the past to life.
