Follow me Italy:
Journey through the Eternal City on foot and enjoy some of Rome’s most well-known historic landmarks. See the Roman Forum and the Colosseum (also known as the Flavian Amphitheater), the largest such structure in the world. Climb to the top of Palatine Hill, the mythological birthplace of Romulus and Remus, for spectacular views of the city. As you walk along the main street of ancient Rome, the Via Sacra, view the temples to Vesta and to Antoninus and Faustina. During your leisure time, pay homage to other top destinations and follow the well-traveled footsteps of centuries of Romans before you.
What we love:
• The Historic Centre of Rome was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980.
• Some say that cappuccino, the coffee drink, comes from the color of the robes worn by monks of the Capuchin Order. Others say that it was created by Marco d’Aviano, a 17th-century Capuchin monk, but there is no proof of that.
• The Seven Hills that Rome is built on are: the Capitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, Aventine and Palatine.
