Rome has no rivals when it comes to beauty, history, art, nature, parks, architecture and monumentality. The city changes continuously, offering all possible architectural styles which often overlaps, creating two, often three or four level structures that might incorporate, for example, a baroque palace underneath which there might be a medieval church beneath which you might have a second century church under which there might be 3 levels of ancient catacombs. Additionally, the city displays the greatest amount of monuments and/or points of interest among all world cities, having about 15% of the entire world’s artistic/historic/archaeological/architectural/ inheritance. That is one-sixth of the world’s treasures condensed in one city. From skyscrapers to rationalism to neoclassicism to Art Deco to Renaissance to Baroque to Medieval to Neo-Gothic to imperial Rome…the list never ends. I cannot even begin to write about the Eternal City, so much is there.
Modern Rome has 280 fountains and more than 900 churches. Nearly 700,000 euros worth of coins are tossed into Rome’s Trevi Fountain each year. The proceeds are donated to Caritas to help those in need. The Romans had built a road network of 53,000 miles by the early fourth century. Each Roman mile was about 4,800 feet and marked by a milestone, giving birth to the saying “All roads lead to Rome.” In Ancient Rome, only free-born men were allowed to wear togas, a sign of Roman citizenship. Women wore stolas, the female version of togas, made from linen. The mascot of Rome is a she-wolf that cared for brothers Romulus and Remus, the mythological founders of Rome. Rome became the capital city of unified Italy in 1870, taking the title from Florence. Law in Rome allows cats to live without disruption in the place they were born. Wild cats can be climbing the walls of the Colosseum, and sleeping among the ruins of the Forum. Women in ancient Rome dyed their hair with goat fat and beech wood ashes. The most popular colors were red and blond. The first ever shopping mall was built in Rome between 107 and 110 AD by Emperor Trajan. It sold a wide variety of goods and grocery items. Rome’s first university, La Sapienza, established in 1303 AD, is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world. Rome has a museum dedicated entirely to pasta. St Peter’s basilica inside Vatican City is the largest church ever constructed.
