All streets lead to Rome

Rome is located in the center of Italy in the Lazio region, the second largest region in terms of population size. Known also as the Eternal City, Rome has always played an important role on the international stage - first as the capital of the Roman Empire, then as the seat of the Roman Catholic Church, and it remains a center of commerce, science and art.

Roman holiday

The Eternal City is also the main tourist destination in Italy and was the third most-visited city in Europe in 2017. The largest groups of international visitors in Rome in 2017 came from the United States of America, Japan and the United Kingdom. Every year, more and more tourists enjoy also the best-known tourist attractions in Rome, like the Colosseum, Forum Romanum (Roman Forum) and Palatine Hill, which together recorded over seven million visitors in 2017.
