If only two words could be used to describe Rome, no pair could be better than “creativity” and “culture.” Even the most casual visitor is swept into the city’s dizzying array of ancient sites, stunning artwork, and new surprises around every corner.
The Eternal City is the capital of Italy, and perhaps its most striking travel destination. The historic city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that charges every vacation with the energy of the Roman Empire founded on the Seven Hills.
An exploration of Europe cannot be complete until Rome’s particular adventures have been experienced. The palaces and church cathedrals, Roman ruins, monuments, fountains and statues each offer a new and exciting journey.
The full-color photos in Ruins of Rome I & II were taken at Palazzo Senatorio, Saint Peter’s Basilica and Vatican City, Via della Conciliazione, the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, San Paolo fuori le mura, Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese, various obelisks, and other sites. Step into this whirling place and become absorbed by its vibrant heart.
