In an existence spanning an estimated fourteen-thousand years it's no surprise that Rome is steeped in stunning architecture, but on top there are innumerable fine artworks, sculptures, fountains and public gardens to admire.
In the city's ancient yet bustling streets the air hangs heavy with the aromas of coffee and Italian cuisine that emanate from al fresco restaurants, intimate Trattorias and cosmopolitan cafes. Somehow, Rome effortlessly manages to offer something that will delight every visitor. The awe of avid sightseers cannot fail to be inspired by spectacles such as the ancient Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Forums, whilst aesthetes and architecture buffs will find Rome's four cathedrals and countless historic churches and buildings nothing less than breath-taking.
