On the Tiber, in the centre of Italy, there lies the Italian capital of Rome. The “Eternal City” as it was called by the poet Tibullus more than 2,000 years ago, is located on a plain between the foothills of the Apennine and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Rome is a multifarious city with a history that dates back thousands of years. It was the core of the huge Roman Empire, the heart of Catholic Christianity and is the capital of Italy today. Even today, the Pope still has his pontifical residence in the Vatican City State, the smallest state in the world.
Over its long history, Rome has experienced eras of growth, prosperity and decline and is shaken by crises again today. But there is one thing Rome has not lost – its very special magic.
