Rome is magnificent and brutal at the same time.
It’s a showcase of Western civilization, 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 center 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.
