The Eternal City

Centre of the ancient world for 500 years, and home of the Catholic Church for almost two millennia, Rome has forgotten more history then most other cities can remember. Now the capital of modern Italy, its bustling streets and graceful piazzas have been embellished with the treasures of Roman emperors, Renaissance popes, and some of the greatest artists the world has known. A lifetime would not be long enough to do Rome justice.
