A MULTI-LAYERED CITY

The center of the world, the New Babylon, the Eternal City, the center of the Western Christianity. These and many other definitions have long been used to define the unique nature of the Italian capital—Roma, in English, Rome. Founded on April 21, 753 BC, the many events that have transpired within the walls of what was once a small group of villages on the Tiber river, have fashioned not just the character of this remarkable city, but also the entire world. Layers upon layers of history, urban development, and innovative architectural styles have shaped Rome in such a way as to make it a historical synthesis found nowhere else in the world. Our Rome tours are especially designed to bring back to life the glorious past and the fascinating history of the Eternal city. Already 2000 years ago Rome was inhabited by more than one million people, and although barbaric invasions and wars throughout the centuries reduced its population to a few thousands, during its history extraordinary minds contributed to the greatness of Rome. Philosophers, generals, artists, emperors, princes, and popes impressed their own personalities onto the city and made it greater through a process of slow transformation. A physical example of this transformation are the stones, marble, and bronze that were taken from the pagan temples and used to build churches and palaces whose remnants can be seen today in the Forum and in other parts of the city. In the same way Rome's political culture, the judicial system, the arts and literature that was created here, have brought changes that are still visible nowadays in the western culture and in the world. The past and present, the pagan and Christian, mighty arts and the everyday life—  all these things are inextricably connected in Rome. In no other city you find antiquity and modernity so admirably intertwined, the Middle Ages and the Futurism, the Renaissance and the Baroque. The Eternal City is the only a place in the world steeped in such history, beauty, and fascination, and we at Roma Experience are excited at having you with us, and all our expert guides are looking forward to make your acquaintance and accompany you through a beautiful unforgettable experience tour in Rome.   

"There is almost nothing beautiful in the world other than Rome" (J. J. Winckelmann, 1756)
