Roma, non basta una vita – Rome, a lifetime is not enough. This was the title of a famous book published in 1962 by the journalist Silvio Negro, who knew Rome very well. It is true that one lifetime is not enough to fully understand the history of a city that has continued uninterrupted for thirty-four centuries.
Rome is one of the most incredible cities to see by foot. At every corner there is something new to discover. Over time it has seen the overlapping and blending of buildings and monuments of earlier times, with the architecture of the Medieval, the Renaissance and the Baroque. All of this creates a fusion of periods and styles that makes Rome a genuine open-air museum where one can walk through the centuries. While most believe that the finest works of history are held within the four walls of a museum, that is not the case for the Eternal City.
Admire seven masterpieces by Caravaggio without stepping into a museum. See some of the city’s most magnificent sculptures without even purchasing a ticket. Explore the hidden treasures of a city with more than 3000 years of history just by walking its streets. With a comfortable pair of shoes and eyes wide open, you will experience some of the greatest accomplishments achieved by mankind. The abundance of art, architecture, and history is astonishing.
