Five Reasons Why You Should Consider Studying Abroad
Rome is the capital of Italy and a special comune (named Comune di Roma
Capitale) and the capital of the Lazio region in the same country. It is
also home to the Vatican City, an independent country. This makes Rome the
only existing example of a country within a city. Rome ids believed to be
about 2800 years old and is thus one of the oldest continuously occupied
sites in Europe. Rome has played home to one of the world’s greatest
civilisations ever called the Roman Civilization, and during this period it
had emerged as the frontrunner of world history and martial might in
Europe. You should visit it to see its royal palaces or their ruins,
millennium-old churches, ornately designed monuments and top-class statues
Things to do in Rome
The Colosseum is regarded as the largest remaining structure built by the
Ancient Romans that is still standing today. Its design is followed in most
of the stadiums and arenas around the world. The Colosseum was begun by
Vespasian in AD 72 and was continued until 80 AD by his son Titus for many
games. The Colosseum was once large enough to host theatrical performances,
festivals, circuses, or games.
The Vatican City
The Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world, and most
of it enclosed by the its walls inside Rome. The Vatican City features a
palace and gardens, a basilica called St. Peter's Basilica, and a city
square called St. Peter's Square. Out of them, St. Peter's Basilica is most
important because it is where Michelangelo's masterpiece Pieta is kept.
The Pantheon is the best-preserved monument since the times of Ancient
Romans, and it has stood almost the same for last 2000 years. Its gilded
bronze roof tiles were removed and melted to cast the canopy over the altar
in St. Peter's Basilica and cannons for Castel Sant'Angelo. Also, of note
is that, the Pantheon was rebuilt after being damaged in a fire in 80 AD.
