Several expressions have been used to describe the unique city of Rome and capital of Italy.  The ‘navel' of the world, the eternal city, centre of western Christianity to cite just a few. 

The History of Rome boasts over  three thousand years of history that have created the character of the city and left their mark in forming an urban structure with no comparison. 

Every century gentlemen of Rome from generals to emperors, from popes to princes, have left their personal stamp on the city.  They were responsible for commissioning artists and architects

to design the most famous buildings, sculptures and paintings which today give the city it's enchanting appearance.


The capital combines both past and present, as well as secular and Christian.  During the course of the  long history of Rome, the city has decisively influenced the religious and cultural

direction of Europe.  Latin, the language of the Antique Empire, makes up the foundations of many of western Europe's languages.  Antique Rome's political and judiciary systems have been

used as a model for a large number of states and legislative systems.  


During medieval times the concept of the Imperial Christian emerges from Rome, while the Pope's power strengthened during the renaissance era and their court became the cultural centre

acting as a catalyst the history of Rome moved in to another direction.  For many a century the fame and fortune of Rome was interwinedwith the Church and when the Pope left Rome for France

the city suffered terrible economic consequences. But, in modern history, Rome has regained importance especially since the re-unification of Italy symbolized by the imposing  memorial to

VittorioEmanueleII is considered to be the heart of Rome at Piazza Venezia.


Architecture, sculptures and paintings of ancient Rome have served as a model for all western art both in antiquity and modern day.  The city of Rome still attracts and amazes millions of

visitors with its never-ending story. The history of Rome that spans millennia is still there to be discovered, and with a local expert guide you can re-live the great days of the Eternal City.


It's easy to travel around the city thanks to ATAC, the public company that offers a complete bus service

any time of day. Moreover, trains and metro system allow to get anywhere while avoiding car traffic.

The metro stop "Agnagnina" is ideal to get to the Tor VergataUniversity.

Rome is a city full of attractions and activities. Discovering all the monuments that ancient Emperors

left us would be a very long task. The weather in Rome is typically mediterranenan, which means winters are

not excessively cold. As a result of that, citizens of Rome often like to indulge in a trip to the "colliromani"

(small hills around the cuty) or to Ostia, a famous seaside resort few kilometers

away from Rome. A 5 minute walk in any direction will take you to a restaurant with traditional Italian food, 

and along the river Tevereduring the late afternoon and night it's possibileto experience the "Lungotevere",

 an endless stream of restaurant and pubs with local food and drinks where people relax after work or after

a long day of studying.

What to eat and drink when in Rome


When in Rome, there is one thing you won’t have to worry about: being able to find a nice place to eat.  From family run trattoriasand pizzerias, to fancier, hip restaurants, Rome knows how to quench your hunger  and satisfy her visitors with her savouryspecialties. Roman food is a popular, yet simple one. It is not  sophisticated or elaborate, but generous, rich in flavoursand character, and full of many mouth-watering recipes.

The typical Roman food has its roots in the past and reflects the old traditions in most of its offerings.

It is based on fresh vegetables (the king is definitely the artichoke, whether deep fried, simmered in olive  oil with garlic and mint, or “allagiudia”), not expensive cuts of meats (the so called “quintoquarto,”  meaning mainly innards, cooked with herbs and hot chillipepper). It also consists of deep fried, tasty appetizers  (such as salted cod and filled zucchini blossoms) and sharp “pecorino cheese" (made from sheep’s milk from the

nearby countryside), a very important ingredient in many recipes.


Not to mention the pasta, of course, a staple for every Italian, and therefore every Roman. From “carbonara”  to spaghetti “ajoe ojo” (simple but so effective, with its fiery mix of olive oil, garlic and chili pepper), from rigatoni “con pajata” to a hearty, fragrant soup such as “pasta e ceci.”


There are few Roman desserts, and they are mainly connected to festivities (Carnival, Eastern or Christmas). They are definitely worth a try, however, especially the ricotta cake, which is made with fresh ricotta cheese  mixed with sugar, lemon, vanilla, candied fruits, pine nuts and raisins.
