Rome the Eternal City
Its historic center, together with the extraterritorial properties of the Holy See inside the city and the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, is among the 50 Italian sites included by UNESCO in the World Heritage List. The historic center, enclosed within the Aurelian walls (to the left of the Tiber) and the gianicolensi walls, includes 25,000 points of environmental and archaeological interest. The Colosseum, Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna, Via Veneto, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and countless other squares, the Vatican City, the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica are only a few minutes away from the red line. Legend has it that a founding of Rome was in 753 BC two brothers, Romulus and Remus, suckled by the famous Lupa, which has become an iconographic symbol of the capital, along with one of its most important monuments: the Colosseum. Rome: first center of the Roman Republic, then fulcrum of the political and cultural life of the Empire, and, in the fourth century, capital of the Christian world.
