The seat of the mighty Ancient Roman Empire, Rome boasts astonishing history that very few cities can rival. A visit to this ancient city is literally a walk through time. Historic marvels such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Pantheon will leave even the most die-hard history buffs in awe. The city is home to priceless works of art, including world-class museums, Renaissance frescoes, Byzantine mosaics and medieval piazzas, which are impossible to reproduce even today. The splendid churches will take you back to the early days of Christianity. Vatican City is still revered by millions of Roman Catholics. Modern Rome is very different from its ancient predecessor, but has its own romantic allure. The ‘ dolce vita’ lifestyle is the essence of this city. Wander around the meandering streets and you will find yourself hanging out at quaint cafes and restaurants, gorging on delicious food. If you believe in luck, throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain and wish for the best. The city’ s music scene is quite admirable, with innumerable concert halls and venues. Rome takes you away from the rat-race of life and compels you to enjoy life to the fullest.
