Roma è sempre Roma! Rome is always Rome – a city that never changes! If you have ever thrown a coin in the Trevi Fountain, you will know that when you return the city will still be the same. Known as The Eternal City, Roma is over three thousand years old and filled with stunning buildings constructed in marble and sandstone from every epoca.

If you are a traveller to Italy, you have to visit the most magnificent city in the world!  It is the city of ancient history as well as the city of great fountains and acquaducts that service them. It is filled with every type of museum imaginable as well as numerous art galleries to visit. There is every type of piazza from the large to the small and eating out until early morning.

As the capital of Italy, Roma is the center of Italian Politics as well as the center of the Catholic Church worldwide, encompassing Vatican City, as a separate state all on its own so there is always an incredible mix of people of all religions visiting the city. Roma is without a doubt one of the most interesting places in the world and one of the Passion for Italy favourite cities.
