ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME
Rome, Italy’s capital, was founded in 753 BC. With nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display, this cosmopolitan city is a destination on the bucket list of many. The power of the former Roman Empire is evident through ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum. Vatican City, the heart of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.
