Rome

Description:

Rome is more than a fascinating European capital city; it is a spectacular encyclopedia of living history. It has been said that all roads lead to Rome, and in Rome, every road leads to eternity. The city is vast, although the historic center is quite small. The whole experience of Rome is so powerful as to be almost overwhelming at times. The best way to prepare for a visit is to study a little of the history of the region, and then arrange an itinerary that allows time to explore, rest, and reflect on the magnificence of it all. Visit Vatican City, a independent city-state located entirely within Rome.  Tours of Rome are plentiful and often based on themes of history, food and wine, art, and religion.  The daring may want to rent a Vespa and navigate the historical streets of a city teeming in history.
