From the remains of its imperial glory days to the Renaissance and baroque riches of its historic centre, Rome is a glorious architectural patchwork - a living masterpiece.
Begin your journey at the Vatican City (3.5km)
, declared an independent state in 1929 and home to St. Peter's Basilica (2.9km)
(the largest church in the world),
the Vatican Museum (3.8km)
and the shining star of the Italian Renaissance, the Sistine Chapel (3.6km).
The awe-inspiring architecture and art collection makes the Vatican City top of the list of must-sees.
The abundance of restaurants and wine bars make it a nightlife hotspot for both tourists and locals; tuck in for a traditional meal of gnocchi (usually eaten on Thursdays) or the Roman speciality, pasta coda alla vaccinara, a ragu made from braised oxtail stew.
