Rome is a heady blend of artistic and architectural masterpieces, classical ruins, and extravagant baroque churches and piazzas. The city’s 2,700 years of history are on display everywhere; the term “living museum” has never been more appropriately used. This is where a metropolis once bustled around the carved marble monuments of the Roman Forum, where centuries later Michelangelo Buonarroti painted Christian history in the Sistine Chapel, and where an empire of gold was worked into the crowns of centuries of rulers. Nestled in the heart of Rome is the world’s smallest state, the Vatican City, home to the truly breathtaking Sistine Chapel.
