About Rome Tourism
Italy's most famous city, Rome is sited within the Lasio region and is home to endless ancient monuments and Roman remains. This stunning capital city is a haven for tourism and contains many quality hotels, Rome apartments and world-class attractions, such as the Vatican City (home of the Pope and the Roman Catholic faith), the Colosseum (Colosseo), the Forum (Foro Romano) and the Pantheon, which dates back some 1,000 years and has become an iconic landmark. Although there is no denying that this is a sprawling city, much of the interest lies within the area edged by the Villa Borghese (north), the Colosseum (south), the Stazione Termini (east) and the River Tiber (west), with accommodation, including short term Rome apartments, which are understandably sought-after in this chunk of the city.
Fiumicino Airport (FCO) is close to the Mediterranean coastline and within easy reach of Rome's Historic Centre, which has become an acclaimed World Heritage Site. Other highlights in Roman include the Capitoline Hill, Domus Aurea, Palazzo Farnese, Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi) and the Spanish Steps (Scalinata di Spagna), a spectacular baroque staircase dating back to 1723 and a much photographed sight.
