by Rosamaria Tristano and Carlo Gargano

Rome is the capital of Italy and the biggest city in the country. Although it isn't the economic centre, it is the political centre and it is becomming more and more important.

It is located in the middle of the Italian peninsula. It was founded by the Romans in an area where there are seven hills, famous in classical history, and the river Tiber.

Rome was the centre of the ancient world as capital of the Roman Empire. It has remained a very important city through the centuries and became the centre of the Catholic world. For this reason, today, there are amazing monuments, from ancient Roman, to Renaissance and Baroque.

After the Colosseum, Saint Peter's and other places that everybody knows, there are interesting attractions and beautiful places to visit. For example, in Rome there is a hughe park, Villa Borghese, but also fantastic museums, with pictures, statues, and other beautiful things by the most important artists from all over the world.

If you are interested in shopping and fashion don't miss the Roman fashion week, it isn't like the fashion shows in Milan or Pairs, but it's quite popular, and if you want to buy something, don't worry: you can find everything you need, from the famous luxury brands, to cheaper outlets. And if you prefer sports, in Rome are often performed competitions of the most popular Italian sports.

You can reach Rome by plane from all over the world, or also by train, and during the stay you can move using taxis or the subway. Anyway, the best thing to do is walk a lot, so that you can see all the fascinating streets there are in Rome.

There is lots of accommodation that will satisfy your needs, and the same is for restaurants: dan't forget to taste the delicious typical Italian dishes, or, if you prefer something more international, there are restaurants where you can eat food from all over the world. You won't have any problems even at night, when you can choose from one of the most popular discos, pucs, and other entertainment.
