Rome – The timeless city
Magical, contradictory, beautiful and haughty: Rome is among the most multifaceted and talked about cities of the world, to the point that describing it in a completely new way is almost impossible. The city escapes any defining label, and the moment we seem to have it figured out, Rome has already changed its appearance. For centuries Rome has been an endless source of inspiration for all, including artists and prominent figures from all over the world. Perhaps it’s because each time you set foot in it time and time again you have the impression of being at home as well as being there for the first time. Eternal, this is how the city of Rome is known throughout the world - because it is impossible to determine where Rome starts and finishes, in the timeline. It's a seductive, almost arrogant city that presents a swaggering collection of treasures - a spectacle of shapes and colours that forever alters our concept of discovery. Experience this fascinating city in a new, inspired, intelligent and respectful way. Sustainable tourism for the city and its people, maintains its historic sites: not by hiding them to the public, but rather by revealing them to visitors who can appreciate the soul of the city in its streets, from its terraces, within its churches, on the market stalls or within its boutiques.
