Italy has changed. But Rome is Rome.
Rome is the city of echoes, the city of illusions, and the city of yearning.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, it was built to be Eternal. But who's responsible? Romulus, Cesar, the Pope? Which popes? What's the secret behind the rise of the Eternal City? Where does its power lie?
Why so many churches and where’s the best pizza? How many fountains are there in Rome? How many coins are tossed into the most beautiful of them? Why are the Egyptian obelisks everywhere, and who would have invented a basil-flavored gelato?
The questions about Rome, its heroes, and its history are infinite, and there’s an answer to each of them.
Let us guide you through these ancient streets, and you’ll find out what sets Rome apart from any other city.
This is not just an introductory tour of Rome. It's a journey through ambitions and dreams, envy and hatred, pride and love of the families who made Rome.
