Rome is the capital and largest city in Italy, located in the Lazio region. There has been a human settlement on the site for over two millennia, and Rome is one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe. It was the leading city during the Roman Empire, and there are many amazing places to see - all beautifully preserved - from the Colosseum to the Pantheon. Built along the shores of the Tiber river and home to the smallest country in the world, The Vatican City, it is a place of pilgrimage for people from all over the world.
