Rome wasn't built in a day, but carefully crafted by rulers and romantics. The birthplace of an empire, the seat of the Catholic Church, Italy's capital carries quite a history, but try picturing titans in togas ruling it now. Its tangled streets favour romance around ruins, rambling from trattoria to gelateria, lingering in every piazza. All roads lead to Rome, but you might not want a way out.
