Rome, The Eternal Charm 

Rome has had an enviable history, having conquered most of Europe and beyond even two thousand years back. It set the standards for Empire-building, unity and amity with discipline as the watchword. Rome, therefore, offers vast and varied archaeological treasures, monuments and museums. Still the seat of the headquarters of Catholic faith, its place in the religious quest of mankind is unique and unapproachable by other cities. But modern Rome is another magnet to draw huge number of tourists who admire its myriad beauties of the past, medieval and the present diversities. Rome set the norms for the rest of the then known world in many areas of human endeavour and continues to do so even now.

The Rome under papal jurisdiction has its pious attractions to the Catholics and the rest too for the grand structures of faith. Drawing inspiration from early Greek architecture, the Christian places of worship developed their own dignified characteristics evoking awe and faith. The St. Peter’s Basilica at Vatican City is matchless and superb. Even the dilapidated old structures of Maxentus and Constantine make us wonderstruck with their grandeur.

Roman Pantheon and Colosseum are but two examples of Roman magnificence. The whole of Rome is replete with many what one must admit as fulfilling our desire to be so close to the past and great.

The Roman aqueducts were built and maintained by the civic authorities for potable water supply to its citizens. Many of the present aqueducts can be admired for their elegant construction: despite ornamentation, they have even now great utilitarian value.

You don’t have to be under the impression that only the distinct religious past is Rome’s appeal. Far from it. The present city is one of the most dynamic ones and its business, entertainment, food, wines, sports, theatre and music are all coveted upon. The old proverb “Rome was not built in a day” is valid for the present day diversions and merriments as well as people are consciously out to enjoy the niceties of life as well.

Hotel Majestic Roma, Starhotels Metrapole, Kolbe Hotel Rome, Britannia Hotel are but a few of more than 700 high class hotels in Rome. They are exclusive and elegant, overflowing with hospitality matched with service. Catering to the different food needs of the people is a speciality in most of the hotels.  Invariably close to many of the great landmark structures you will find classy modern hotels as well.

But Rome is not as costly or expensive as New York or London. The tourist with moderate means well not feel let down in Rome. There is plenty of accommodation for diverse categories of visitors.

Modern Rome is also one of the very busy commercial centres of Europe and as such its stature in providing facilities for business conferences, meetings and get together and grand automobile shows and the like are equally well known and appreciated throughout the world. There is no air of false pride among its citizens who go out of their way to make the visitors feel at home. Accordingly, apart from academic or business purposes, the lighter side of tasty food tastier wines is also met with aplomb.

Rome is not just one city. It is a compendium of human wisdom through the ages.And its present greatness lies not in the conflicting juxtaposition between the values of the past and the present but in the very pleasant commingling of the best from the past and the present.

A Roman Holiday will be a dream come true and savoured for a very long time.
