Rome, the heart of Italy and a city that echoes the grandeur of the Roman Empire, is often mistaken for a city of ruins and ancient relics alone. However, Rome is a complex tapestry woven with diverse strands of history, culture, and culinary delights.

The cityscape of Rome is an open-air museum; the Roman Forum and the Colosseum narrate the tales of the mighty Roman Empire. Yet, it is not just about the remnants of a glorious past. Here, you will find a dynamic city life with streets lined with cafes serving 'cappuccino' and 'cornetto' - the traditional Roman breakfast.

The locals, or 'Romani' as they are known, take pride in their heritage. They have a tradition of greeting visitors with warmth and are known to engage in friendly exchanges about their city's history.

The Vatican City, an independent city-state enclaved within Rome, is a focal point for Catholic pilgrims from around the world. With St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums, it is an abode of religion and art, attracting millions of visitors each year.

Rome's culinary scene is another of its defining features. From 'pizza al taglio' sold in small storefronts to 'gelato' shops that offer myriad flavours, Rome is a delight for gastronomes.
