“SHE HAD ALWAYS BEEN FOND OF HISTORY, AND HERE [IN ROME] WAS HISTORY IN THE STONES OF THE STREET AND THE ATOMS OF THE SUNSHINE.” HENRY JAMES.
Rome is the Capital, that offers all that you can find in big cities, in addition to its famous artistic beauties beloved all over the world, cultural itineraries and events, exhibits, festivals and more.
Additionally, the big four Roman shopping streets - Via dei Condotti, Via Frattina, Via Borgognona and Via Margutta - offer the best of Italian and international Made in Italy fashions, all inside period buildings and incomparable settings, for instance, the Spanish Steps!
Finally, literary cafés and aperitivi spots line the charming piazzas of the Historic Center and on Via Veneto, the backdrop to Fellini’s La Dolce Vita and the symbol - with its trendy cafés and restaurants - of a decade that made modern history.
Yet, Rome is much more and must be discovered layer by layer; every hidden corner conceals a trove of interesting surprises - for example, the singular and awe-inspiring view of St. Peter's Dome through, of all places, the Knights of Malta Keyhole on the Aventine Hill.
