Rome City Guide Introduction

Rome City Guide Introduction - Rome, Italy

Rome is the Eternal City, a treasure inside and out. The Colosseum, the Catacombs and the Pantheon are all among Europe's first tier of ancient sites. But Rome isn't just a gloriously ancient city. It's also a glorious medieval city, a glorious Renaissance city and a glorious modern city.

Funky neighborhoods like Trastevere and San Lorenzo set a hip tone. And then there's the culinary side of the equation. Delectable cuisine is the rule here, not the exception. Whether you eat traditional Italian food, go the modern fusion route or choose a low-key cafés for sustenance, you should leave delightfully sated.

And on top of all that, you might just catch the Pope in Rome, preaching to the faithful.
