Whether you want to wander through the ruins of the Roman Forum, gaze up at the spectacular ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or taste the world-famous food in the markets of Campo de’ Flori, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Rome has to offer.
A living museum of crumbling amphitheatres and splendid palaces, Rome has ancient sights around every corner. This is a city that delicately balances the old and new, where street art rears its head near Roman pyramids, vespas whiz past centuries-old triumphal columns and the aperitivo tradition is guarded with full force at hip pavement cafés.
