Rome

The Eternal City

According to legend, two demigods named Romulus and Remus founded the city of Rome in 753 BC. During an argument over who would rule the city, Romulus killed his brother, Remus. Romulus named the city after his name.
Your heart will be conquered by this inspiring city’s romantic blend of history and culture. It was once just a small town on the banks of the Tiber River and over time became the most powerful center of the Roman Empire. The ancient Romans believed that no matter what happened in the world, Rome would last forever.
