Rome is a city that will take you on a journey through time. Founded in 753 A.D., it has since accumulated some of mankind’s most prized treasures. Every building is a true masterpiece, and there are countless places to visit.

Delicious Italian cuisine, ancient monuments, haute couture and Renaissance art create a magical feeling in the ‘City of Seven Hills’. It is a unique combination of ancient and modern. And although not all roads lead to Rome, you should definitely follow at least one in your lifetime.

The fastest and easiest way to get to the capital of Italy is by flying direct from Moscow.

Aeroflot flies directly from Moscow to Rome’s Fiumicino International Airport (L’aeroporto di Roma-Fiumicino) daily. The most affordable option is to buy a round-trip ticket. The flight lasts around four hours. The cheapest fares for round trips and connecting flights sell out quickly, so we recommend that you purchase your tickets early.

What to see

One of the first images that come to mind when thinking about Italy is the Colosseum,known as the Flavian Amphitheatre until the 8th century.  It is the largest oval amphitheatre built in a city centre. Construction began under the reign of Emperor Vespasian from the Flavian Dynasty around A.D. 70 and was later completed under his successor and heir Titus. Estimated to have been able to hold around 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was famous for its gladiatorial contests, animal hunts and mock sea battles. It now attracts more than five million tourists every year

Nearby is the Roman Forum. For centuries, the Forum was the centre of day-to-day life in Rome; processions passed through, laws were adopted, governors were elected, public speeches and criminal trials took place here. The Holy Road (Via Sacra) runs through the Forum and was ancient Rome’s main street. The road was part of the traditional route of Roman triumphs, and honourable guests used it to enter the city.

One of the best preserved of all of Rome’s ancient buildings is the Roman Pantheon, the ‘temple of all gods’. Despite its polytheistic beginnings, after six centuries it became a Christian church. The huge rotunda of the Pantheon has no windows, and the only light comes in through the hole in its dome. Its purpose is still being disputed amongst historians; many claim the building was used as a sundial.

Europe’s smallest state is the Vatican, officially known as Stato della Città del Vaticano,an enclave within the city of Rome whose museums are home to numerous masterpieces. Within Vatican City, there are religious and cultural sites such as the Sistine Chapel (Cappella Sistina). From outside it looks rather modest, but the beauty of the interior is breathtaking. The Vatican Museums feature some of the world’s most famous Renaissance paintings and sculptures, from Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and the world-renowned Michelangelo, who painted the ceiling of the chapel.

St. Peter’s Basilica (Basilica di San Pietro) is  the heart not only of the Vatican, but of the entire Catholic faith. It is one of the largest Christian churches ever built, and most of the famous architects of the Renaissance took part in its construction, including Bramante and Michelangelo. From here you can get a bird’s-eye view of Rome, attend Mass and even receive a blessing from the Pope.
