Rome is the capital city of Italy and is the country’s largest and most populated city. The metropolitan area of Rome has about 4 million people, and the entire city accommodates more than 2.8 million residents. You’ll find Rome on the Tiber River in the Lazio region of central Italy. Rome has several attributes such as Caput Mundi (Capital of the world), l’Urbe (The City), la Città Eterna (The Eternal City) and Limen Apostolorum (Threshold of the Apostles), among others. Rome ranks third on the list of Europe’s most-visited tourist hotspots, owing to the fact that this ancient city was once a major centre of early civilisation.
