ROME AND THE VATICAN ETHERNAL BEAUTY    

ROMEexperiences

Each traceable itinerary will never be enough to collect its essence ... always becoming the fulcrum of a new journey that will be able to fix the different emotion in the foodies pit stop .... all the experiences to live it

Eternal in its beauty, as imposing in its grandeur as in its extension ... the Eternal city that not even Romulus was able to contain in one hill, that was raison the death of Remus, the Palatine .. to wich, the destiny added 6 more! Always at the center , capital of political and economic power, it has fatally attracted men of all thickness, tracing the 25,000 world heritage sites. Its center, extended between the Aurelian and Gianicolense walls, allows itself to be crossed by the long Tiber that in the center is flooded to make room for the Tiber Island, tells the story of the succession of the three thousand years of human history that can be breathed while walking through every kind of building construction: from civil constructions such as Forums, Baths, city walls and palaces to religious ones, from early Christian basilicas to baroque churches, to hydraulic works such as aqueducts, fountains, banks of the Tiber. From the universal Roman models such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the complex of the Roman Forum and the Imperial Forums, to the Medoeval fortifications such as the city walls and Castel Sant'Angelo, up to the urban projects of the Renaissance and Baroque ages to end with the opulence "modern" including the Sistine area with the Trident system, from Piazza del Popolo to Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navona. Only partially the post modernism has succeeded in touching it, leaving untouched every magic in the parade between the Capitol, Palazzo Farnese, Palazzo del Quirinale, the Ara Pacis, the major Basilicas such as San Giovanni in Laterano, Santa Maria Maggiore and San Paolo fuori le mura, not to mention the works contained and the wonders of the gardens.
And then the Vatican, the city-state .. which is so small .. so dense that it cannot be told more ...from the Museums to the gardens .. up to the Pontifical Villas, in Roman territory but considered extraterritorial, with Castel Gandolfo supervising them and ... the Sistine Chapel .. eternal as unsurpassed Beauty !!
