Rome is the Italian capital and one of the cultural epicenters of the entire nation.
It has a variety of diverse personalities which become evident through the mixture of neighborhoods that comprise the Eternal City.

Biscotti: not to be confused with your average cookies or brightly colored French macaroons.

When tourists visit the Eternal City they usually dine in a traditional trattoria where regional dishes of pasta, meat, and seafood are the stars of the evening.

While there is undoubtedly a fan base for soccer in the USA, it is nothing when compared to the dedication and obsession that Italians have for Calcio.

When planning a day trip from Rome, there are almost too many options and it can be hard to decide where to go.
So many of the small towns in Lazio, Tuscany, and Umbria are amazing destinations and definitely worth a visit.
Among them is a hill-top town named Orvieto.

While walking through the center of Rome, surrounded by monuments such as the Pantheon and the Colosseum, it's hard to avoid the ancient history of Rome.
There is no doubt that Rome's long history is one of it's greatest strengths and while the center of Rome is the heart and soul of ancient history, Rome's more modern history can be found in other parts of the city.
