Why visit Rome



Rome is without a doubt the eternal city. Indeed the ancient city of Rome has not disappeared but has combined with successive architectural buildings and styles to render today’s Rome a truly unique city. We Romans are used to living side by side with such a rich history; the Roman aqueducts have become the bridges we cross every day on our way to work, our Sunday walk after lunch often takes us along the ancient Appian Way, when we go for a check up at the hospital we might find ourselves in a beautiful cloister dating from the 1300s where ancient Roman remains are displayed (l’Ospedale Nuovo Regina Margherita), mass may take place in the local church where there are frescoes by Caravaggio, or we could find ourselves eating ice-cream in a piazza of breathtaking Baroque magnificence (San Pietro, piazza Sant’Ignazio di Loyola).
