“Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the World! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life… Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Italian Journey (1816)
No country has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than Italy. Of Italy’s 51 WH sites, the Historic Center of Rome is perhaps the most rich. Founded by Romulus in 753 BCE, Rome developed from a small village atop the Palatine Hill, to the center of the massive Roman Empire to then the center of the Catholic world. Remnants of each of these eras are apparent and intertwined as the history of Rome comes alive for visitors.
