Ancient Rome was an Italic civilization that began on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 8th century BC. Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world with an estimated 50 to 90 million inhabitants (roughly 20% of the world's population) and covering 6.5 million square kilometers (2.5 million sq mi) during its height between the first and second centuries AD.In its approximately 12 centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to a classical republic and then to an increasingly autocratic empire. Through conquest and assimilation, it came to dominate Southern and Western Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa, and parts of Northern and Eastern Europe. Rome was preponderant throughout the Mediterranean region and was one of the most powerful entities of the ancient world. It is often grouped into classical antiquity together with ancient Greece, and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman world.

  • Centrally located for all common tourist sites. Very quiet 3rd floor apartment with elevator. A wee bit frayed in decoration and structurally but clean. A piano, a kitchenette and 2 good sized bedroom...  read more »
  • visit this place is back to the past and let yourself go. Imagine that there in each stone, we find life, rumors and so much history. It is convenient to hire a guide to help rebuild that vast city and many curiosities

  • Outside imperiano surrounded the remains of many of Rome's ancient ruins. Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine, and outside imperiano, etc. Like history not only ruins of ancient Rome would be thrilled.
