RomeRome is known as "The Eternal City" because of its long importance in history, both political and spiritual. Beginning with the Roman Empire and through the Renaissance, Rome has been a center of art and culture. And as the location of the capital of Roman Catholicism, it is a place of spiritual pilgrimage for millions of believers from every part of the world. The primary cruise port for this inland city is Civitavecchia. Nearly all who debark at the port will go to Rome as there is so much to see. Even previous visitors will have new things to see or places they want to revisit. The most popular attraction in the city is certainly the Vatican, with its innumerable treasures of art and magnificent architecture. More ancient attractions include the Forum, the Colosseum, and the Pantheon. There are more than 900 churches in the city including four basilicas. A good portion of these houses of worship are worth visiting. But Rome is not just a historical museum. The city includes many squares and gathering places where watching locals and tourists is part of the fun. And there is an amazing night life in Rome, incredible restaurants, and shopping galore. Few places can compete with Rome when it comes to options for tourists. Among the area attractions outside Rome is Ostia Antica, a ruin at the old port of Rome that is similar to Pompeii and offers an unencumbered view of Roman life at the time of the caesars.
