The Rome Escape – Rome snippets

Rome is magnificent and brutal at the same time. It’s a showcase of Western civilisation, with astonishingly ancient sights and a modern vibrancy. Rome is a magnificent tangled urban forest. This city of beautiful chaos is Italy’s political capital, the capital of Catholicism, and the centre of its ancient empire, littered with evocative remains. As you peel through its fascinating and jumbled layers, you’ll find Rome’s buildings, cats, laundry, traffic, and 2.7 million people endlessly entertaining. Visit St. Peter’s, the greatest church on earth, learn something about eternity by touring the huge Vatican Museums, do the “Roman Walk” through ancient Rome’s Forum and Colosseum, savour the Borges Gallery, and take an early evening stroll with Rome’s beautiful people.
