Step back in time and immerse yourself in The Eternal City: a living masterpiece where eminent artwork by the likes of Michelangelo, Raphael and Caravaggio is indefinitely on display. Rome, Italy, is said to be the foundation of Western Civilization and the ruins of its once grandiose architecture is still beloved even as it crumbles beneath the intense sun. Awe-inspiring Baroque, Medieval and Renaissance buildings share a city with office blocks, hostels, and nightclubs – this is the country’s capital, after all. Two of the world’s most revered structures live here: The Pantheon and The Colloseum, both dating back to the times of Ancient Rome. Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for love, and marvel at the Baroque sculpture and impressive backdrop. Visit the walled Vatican City, wander through the museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica, gazing in wonder and amazement at the treasures and masterpieces hidden within.
