Rome

A Short History of the Roman Empire

13 Nov 2019
History plays a significant role in gaining a better understanding of any country’s culture, religions, beliefs, traditions, etc. The history of Rome has been among the most influential to the modern world, influencing the language, literature, technology, science, architecture, art, and laws of today. The capital of Italy, Rome, was once the centre of a vast, ancient empire, which had about ¼ of the world’s population under its governance.

The Roman Empire was one of the most powerful military, political, cultural and economic forces in the world of its time, as well as it became one of the greatest empires in world history. The history of Rome is, without a doubt, long and complex, so it comes as no surprise that today the city is packed with numerous historical landmarks, churches and museums, like the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the National Roman Museum, Ara Pacis, Castel Sant'Angelo, St Peter's Basilica, Altare della Patria, Trevi Fountain, the Baths of Caracalla, the Knights of Malta Keyhole, etc.

It is built on layers: Cobblestones that date back thousands of years, piazzas filled with remnants of two-thousand-year-old temples, and ruins incorporated into modern structures. It is actually the city with the highest concentration of architectural and historical landmarks in the world. That’s why it is a dream destination for those who love history. Everywhere you go in Rome, you are surrounded by the past.

With its fascinating works of art, beautiful monuments and buildings, popular cuisine, and leisurely pace of life, Rome is worth a visit at least once. The city captivates tourists in a way few cities can. It leaves them breathless. There is something magical in the air you just cannot describe. And there is really no excuse to skip these iconic landmarks in the Eternal City.
