The timeless city to which all roads lead, Mamma Roma, enthralls visitors today as she has since time immemorial. Here the ancient Romans made us heir-in-law to what we call Western Civilization; where centuries later Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel; and where Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s Baroque nymphs and naiads still dance in their marble fountains. Today the city remains a veritable Grand Canyon of culture. Ancient Rome rubs shoulders with the medieval, the modern runs into the Renaissance, and the result is like nothing so much as an open-air museum.But always remember: ” Quando a Roma vai, fai come vedrai” (“When in Rome, do as the Romans do”).Contemplate the grandeur from a table at a sun-drenched cafe on Piazza della Rotonda;let Rome’s colorful life flow around you without feeling guilty because you haven’t seen everything.There’s just so much here that you’ll have to come back again, so be sure to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain.The home of the Catholic Church, Vatican City,a tiny independent state tucked within central Rome,holds some of the city’s most celebrated sights,including St.Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling.
