Rome

Italy's Eternal City has retained its splendor to this day. Countless historical sites, such as the Vatican, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, are visited by millions of people annually. A stone's throw from the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built, visitors can savor fabulous Roman cuisine and enjoy a glass of local white wine in the area of Celio, which has preserved its sense of self despite the influx of tourists.
