Where Is Rome, Italy?

As Italy’s capital city and also the capital of the Lazio region, Rome is the country’s most populated commune. The city is the center of the Metropolitan City of Rome and located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, in Lazio, along the shores of Tiber. Rome’s city center approximately lies 24 kilometers inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea, where the territory of the city extends to the shore to the southwestern district of Ostia.

What Is Rome, Italy Known For?

The passion filled capital of Italy is a heady collation of sublime beauty, ancient history, and inimitable street life, that goes beyond words. Arguably one of the most romantic cities in the world, Rome is the fourth most populated European city and the most popular tourist destination in Italy. A commercial hub of business, power, and finance, Rome is also known for its revolutionary artistic heritage and rich historical tales of bygone eras. The birthplace of the Roman Empire and Italian Renaissance, the city has gifted the world with Michelangelo, freshwater systems and modern roads. Awash with beauty and color, Rome is aplomb with quaint streetside cafes, pretty piazzas, magnificent historical buildings, priceless works of art and much more.

Popular Attractions in Rome

  • Colosseum: Take one step back in history and feel the aura of an electrified crowd, hubristic gladiators and animals filled with bloodlust. Arguably one of the most thrilling and enlivening sights of the city, the Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre in the world. Due to its impressive preservation at a grand scale, the Colosseum is the most visited attraction in the city, enticing crowds in their hordes. Skip the line by booking a guided tour or purchasing tickets online and see for yourself the large, looming, and imposing concrete architecture, which was once the very last sight of thousands of gladiators.
  • Pantheon: The Pantheon stands as a testament of meticulous preservation efforts throughout time. Nearly 2,000 years old, the Pantheon is the only building from the ancient world that has remained mainly intact and still in use. A gorgeous spectacle of ancient Roman architecture, the Pantheon features the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome and stunning granite Corinthian columns. Once a temple built to pay homage to the ancient Roman gods, the Pantheon is now a Roman Catholic church that grants visitors the sight of awe-inspiring beauty and the feeling of divine tranquility. As glorious as it is in the sunshine, the Pantheon is arguably even more special when it is raining, due to the sweet sound of rain tapping on the perfectly shaped hole in the ceiling bouncing off the walls.
  • Trevi Fountain: Throw three coins over your left shoulder and be surprised with a return to the city, a new romance, or an eventual marriage, when you launch them into the Trevi Fountain. One of the most photographed sites in the city, la Fontana di Trevi is the largest Baroque fountain and an iconic and romantic emblem of the city. With the ornate Palazzo Poli serving as the backdrop, the Trevi Fountain is one of the most beautiful locations in the city. Marvel at the stunning architecture and feel the aura of beauty, magic, and romance in the air.
