Ignoring the food for a moment, (if one can), Rome’s historical significance cannot be understated if you’re counting down Europe’s most culturally rich cities. Nicknamed the Caput Mundi, ‘capital of the world’, the Eternal City houses innumerable ancient artifacts and architectural marvels. Displaying a Catholic serenity and peace, one can only display humility and muted awe in the presence of its grandiose structures, fountains, frescos, and monuments.
Rome, much like the rest of Italy, shows its artistic and cultural legacy not only in its grand structures but also in the smallest of details. On some innocuous alley, one may find a subtle object – a balcony here, a fountain there, yet they stand in such understated beauty that they’d be the main attraction if found anywhere else in the world. But here, in the Eternal City, they are just another small part of the background that makes up this opulent stage.
Take our Road to Rome tour to experience Caput Mundi’s timeless beauty, with the added benefit of a guided tour giving you premium access to the best sites, skipping the long tourist queues.
