They say that all roads lead there and a short break to this most historic of capital cities will demonstrate why Rome is held in such high regard. At the heart of the ancient Roman Empire, the city was founded on seven hills close to the banks of the River Tiber and to this day you will find awe-inspiring, majestic ruins from this remarkable time of creation, including the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Roman Forum. However, there is more to see in Rome than ancient ruins, as this delightfully filmed video will show. After stepping back into antiquity, a visit to the Vatican City where tourists and pilgrims arrive daily will be an inspiration to the soul while taking in the sheer splendour of your surroundings. From the grandeur of St Peter's Square take a stroll down the charming Spanish Steps to the world famous Trevi Fountain, laden with the coins and wishes of millions of starry-eyed visitors. Artists, poets, musicians, celebrities and mere mortals have for centuries all been drawn to Rome and with its perfect blend of old and new it's easy to see why.
