Rome

Overview

Rome is the “Eternal City”, the Metropolis on the Tiber. No other city offers such a variety of magnificent buildings and artistic treasures spanning so many centuries. Toss a coin into the world-famous Trevi Fountain, watch the hustle and bustle on the Piazza Navona and feel the atmosphere on the Piazza del Popolo in the favorite café of Fellini. Or relax, as Goethe did, in the Antico Caffé Greco after visiting the Spanish Steps. Or let us take you through the lively streets filled with the Italian language, customs and gestures. This is where you will find the real “La Dolce Vita”, because all roads lead to Rome. 

“Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the World! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life… Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.” 

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (German writer 1749-1832)

In Rome, one lifetime is not enough. This is what inhabitants of the eternal city say about their hometown. Rome - the cradle of culture, Rome - Caput Mundi, or simply Rome - the city of a thousand faces.

Italy's capital city and base of the Vatican State was once the centre of the magnificent Roman Empire and remains an incomparable city with its countless churches, royal palaces and piazzas. The Renaissance art work of Raphael and Michelangelo, the numerous buildings dating back to the Baroque period, the masterpieces by Caravaggio as well as the broad cultural offerings of the various art exhibitions, concerts and operas – are waiting to be discovered by you.
