Rome is the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural riches in the world. Its historical centre, lying within Aurelian Walls, contains nearly three thousand years of antiquity, and is an invaluable testimony to the European Western world’s cultural, artistic and historical legacy. Rome, the heart of Catholic Christianity, also hosts the city state of the Vatican. Over 16% of the world’s cultural treasures are located in Rome (70% in all of Italy).
