Although Rome is now a thriving and vibrant capital city, it has been credited as having the richest history in the world.
The ancient Romans had a legendary empire that spanned the globe, but Rome was where the Roman heart was. Here you will find the most staggering concentration of history and acre upon acre of ancient archaeological sites to explore, sprinkled with literally thousands of art treasures.
Rome is home to the Vatican City and the Pope and more than 400 churches, St Peter�s Basilica and Michelangelo�s Sistine Chapel. The Trevi Fountain is one of Rome�s most ostentatious sights and thousands come every day to throw a coin over their shoulder and make a wish.
It would be impossible to list all the must-see sights in Rome, but the one that inspired you the most was the ruins of the Colosseum, built in the first century AD.
This enormous amphitheatre measured 620 feet by 513 feet (190 metres by 155 metres) and could seat 50,000 spectators.
It has been damaged by lightning and earthquakes, and even vandalism, but the ruins remain awe inspiring.
The Colosseum was where real gladiators would have made Russell Crowe look like a big girl�s blouse.
For you, it�s the ultimate 'do not go home without seeing' Roman site.
