The Crown Jewel of Western Civilization

 
“I found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble”
— Augustus
 
 

This beautiful city is a journey into the past. A magical, poetic journey showing us not only the history of the city, but of a great empire that once was, a culture that has evolved through a multitude of changes, and an insight into the psyche of man. Like our mind, there are deeper layers to this city than meets the eye.

The colosseum is a majestic endeavor of engineering and architecture. The fact that it still stands today, enduring wave after wave of change, metamorphosing what it represents: a place where we showcase our best against great odds, to an audience of our peers. What started as a structure it has become an icon.

Rome was not built in a day, and like all great cities, Rome has incorporated its past into its present and functions seamlessly. The Pantheon, once a Roman temple, converted to a church, is a testament to this embodiment. Amid the countless spectacular fountains and statues, there is great life, flowing strong like the river Tiber, in this city.
