Rome, Italy

La Bella Roma is one big open-air museum. Wherever you look, whichever corner you stand on, the street is lined with centuries-old history!

It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Rome. No trip to Rome would be complete with a visit to the Colloseum and independent mini state of Vatican City. Vatican City alone has enough to do and see to fill an entire day! Another gem is the Pantheon, which is more than 2,000 years old. Not enough time to see the whole city? Stand with your back to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin into the fountain with your right hand over your left shoulder. Tradition has it you will return to Rome!
