As Italy’s largest city, Rome offers a wealth of history surrounded by a truly modern European metropolis.  While marble statues and ancient structures rise above the crowded streets, modern Romans dressed in the latest fashions speed over the cobblestones in their Fiat automobiles and Vespa scooters.  This 2,000-year-old city has served as the heart of the Roman Empire, site of the Vatican, hub of world politics, and breeding ground for philosophical thought.  As one of the few major European cities to escape the destruction of World War II, many ancient relics of the “Eternal City” remain standing today.  Some of Rome’s most recognizable monuments include the Colosseum, Pantheon, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain, where director Federico Fellini’s 1960 film La Dolce Vita came to life.  The juxtaposition of old and new will allow you to experience the thrill of Rome’s past, all the while enriching your own future for years to come!
