A cosmopolitan city with an ancient charm, Rome is often hailed as the birthplace of Western civilisation. It’s been at the centre of culture for millennia, from the Roman Empire through the Renaissance and up to the current day. History stands at every corner and masterpieces hang in ever church. It’s impossible to see everything in one trip to Rome, so consider a bus or walking tour to hit the highlights before zoning in on your prime choices. The Colosseum and the Pantheon are both unmissable and unforgettable.
