Rome Caput Mundi, the Eternal city, the cradle of Western civilization and Christianity: these are just some of the names to describe this city that reveals itself to tourists as a unique blend of art, history, architecture and that for three centuries has had no rivals among the favorite destinations of international tourism. Rome is a real open-air museum where, wherever you look, you can admire the traces of a millenary history and culture.
In the last few years, Rome has been able to renew itself taking into account the latest artistic trends with a special attention to the international scene. For this reason, the new touristic routes include not only the ancient city but also contemporary museums and avant-garde exhibitions. One example, above all, is the new MAXXI, the first national museum entirely dedicated to the 21st century art. Just like London, Paris and New York, Rome is a city where art becomes complex, fluid, interactive and multi-functional.
