"Every one soon or late comes round by Rome." - Robert Browning
Rome has beckoned travelers from afar for quite a few decades now. Some might call it mainstream, expensive, luxurious but very few travelers can wind their way away from this enchanting capital. Rome is the 11th most visited city in the world and 3rd most visited in Europe. If Italy represents romance, Rome stands for intimacy. Intimacy between its glorious past and urban present. Intimacy between its spellbinding art and inspiring culture. There can't be any itinerary, any trip, any travel attempt that can claim to have seen all aspects of Rome. There is always more to Rome, and no matter how many trips you take there will always be more to Rome. Needless to say that Rome receives millions of tourists each year.
The beauty of Rome lies in its fluent mixture of its past with its present development. Renaissance art slowly nurtured in modern art, with 21st century artists displaying their works in various galleries. Ancient heritage monuments have adjusted well to the modern infrastructure development of the city. Rome has evolved through the years and still keeps evolving with changes. Thus, one needs to keep re-visiting Rome as the city keeps changing with each visit.
