Rome – the eternal city

Stock Photography By Lars-Olof Nilsson

Rome is one of the most popular tourist attractions and one of the most visited cities in the world. It has certainly earned its epithet "the eternal city" – the remains of ancient Rome are numerous and modern Rome is a fashionable city. The magnificent treasures in the Vatican Museums, ancient history in the Forum Romanum and the Colosseum, colourful markets and piazzas, a romantic evening at a trattoria – the list is long. Throw a coin in Fontana di Trevi to make sure you will return to Rome!
