Rome

Things to do - general

 

All roads lead to Rome… All roads lead to Italy. It’s our motto and it is taken from this Roman proverb because during the time of the Empire the city was very active in specifically building roads that were strategically routed, connected, and all leading to the capital of the Empire.  Some of the important history of the city has been lost in time and only through our excursions, will you discover some of Rome’s immense hidden and forgotten secrets. Home to one of the greatest empires of all times, The Romans have spread the seed of culture and citizenship all over Europe.  Today, it is vital to keep the history and the roots of Europe in its past glories alive, so that we can learn and walk informed towards the future. Rome once stood as the capital of  huge and mighty Empire (from Spain to Iraq). The architecture of the city holds a history of many centuries from IIIth century BC to the new born Republic of Italy in 1948. The presence of fascist monuments, the grandeur of the Roman Empire buildings and the historical dominance of the Church make this city one of the great wonders of the world. Today, the Vatican has its small but independent state within the city itself,  and from this location every Sunday Pope Francis blesses the population of the city as well as the entire world.

Culture and history info

The history of the city dates back in the VII th century BC when small tribes of the local plain decided to get togheter in a democratic form. Rome was considered the rightful descendant of Athens as for its juridical system that was born in Greece. The city had a past of democratic form before the time of Augustus when, fighting against his uncle s favourite man, Marcantonio, defeated him and Cleopatra in the waters in front of Greece and became the first emperor of Roman Empire. This choice changed rapidly the course of the city that became not only the capital of the empire but also the resident home of the Emperor. The long history of the Romans is visible everywhere in the city from the famous Colosseum to Imperial Fori (trade and political square). After the Vth century when the Roman Empire had moved the center of its power to Costantinopoli, the city was sacked several times by barbarian populations coming from North Europe. Only the Church defended the city and stood against all its enemies. Peter, follower of Christ, moved from Palestine to Rome to found the church of Christ and since then, the city is the pulsing heart of Christian religion, the most influential religion in the world. The presence of the Vatican has led the city during the centuries to be "dressed" by all the most important artists of the world at that time. The Vatican Museums and the Peter Chatedral hold some of the finest artifacts and masterpieces that are nowadays envied by the entire world. The famous Sistine chapel has its place here and keeps astounish the people who decide to walk into this path of history that is rightful belonnging to the whole humanity. Our tours with our skilled guides will lead you in the old soulf of Rome, its population, the jewish ghetto, the fountains, and the world famous Vatican Museum.
