Rome is the capital of Italy and of the Vatican. The city is located on the Tiber river within the Lazio region. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe as the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic, the Roman Empire and of the Papal States (and so de facto of the Christian catholic world).
Rome is referred to as “The Eternal City”, a notion expressed by ancient Roman poets and writers. Its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are among the world’s most visited tourist destinations: Rome is the third most visited in the European Union, and the most popular tourist attraction in Italy, especially among American tourists. Rome was one of the European pilot base of TWA.
