Rome is a thriving metropolitan city with an ancient history. The capital of the Roman empire, and home of the Caesars, it was the heart of one of the greatest Empire’s of the modern age. Some of the architecture and ruins represent one of the crowing achievements of human history.

Today the city is jam packed full of tourists, but once you acclimatize yourself to the crowds, there are some amazing things to see. The Vatican lineup is worth the close to 2 hour wait; the art and scale of the Museum within – and the Rafael rooms and Sistine Chapel are its crowing achievements – are worth every moment being pushed by noisy tourists.
