ROME being the capital of Italy and today is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the incalculable immensity of its archaeological and artistic treasures, as well as for the charm of its unique traditions, the beauty of its panoramic views, and the majesty of its magnificent "villas" (parks).

Among the most significant resources are the many museums – (Musei Capitolini, the Vatican Museums, Galleria Borghese, including those dedicated to modern and contemporary art and great many others).

  • Rome's history spans over two and a half thousand years.

After the Middle-Ages, Rome was ruled by Popes such as Alexander VI and Leo X, who transformed the city into one of the major centers of the Italian Renaissance, along with Florence.

  • The current-day version of St Peter's Basilica was built and the Sistine Chapel was painted by Michelangelo. Famous artists and architects, such as Bramante, Bernini and Raphael resided for some time in Rome, contributing to its Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
  • Rome was the largest city in the world, which may have inspired John Heywood's famous epigram, "Rome wasn't built in a day".
  • Rome contains a vast and impressive collection of art, sculpture, fountains, mosaics, frescos, and paintings, from all different periods.
  • Ancient Roman cuisine was highly influenced by Ancient Greek culture.
  • Rome is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated city. Rome hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics and is an official candidate to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

 

About the origin of the name Roma (Rome) from the Greek word ῤώμη(rhòme),
which means 'strength';road.
Later derived a well-known saying: "All roads lead to Rome"
