    Smile Why is Rome one of the most visited places in the world?

    Venice, Rome and Milan are one the parts of Italy which are the one of the most visited places in the world. Why is Rome specially visited among these names?

    Rome Culture And Architecture

    The history for one thing and the interesting culture for another. Beautiful people, wonderful architecture, and great little events everywhere you look. I've seen models doing their thing, music videos being shot, street performances, and whatnot. It's a great place to visit, and I do advise the trip.

    I agree with Esperahol, the history alone is worth the trip. You could walk along a quiet street and bump into a film crew making a movie or shooting a music video. You could meet a famous artist by sheer chance at one of the many sidewalk cafes in Rome. There is romance and mystery in Rome as if breathing the air is like breathing in the thousands of years of history and culture that so thickly permeates the entire city.
    That and the amazing food and beautiful views. I'm not too fond of the Romanesco people in general just like I'm not too fond of Parisiens but the ambiance, cultural heritage and magnificent architecture more than make up for it.

    Reasons For Going To Rome

    Yes, I think the history is a primary factor in people going to Rome. I would love to visit Rome for that, and for the things Esperahol describes.

    It's definitely because of its history why its the most visited place in Italy. I would love to visit Rome. I don't think I would want to leave though.

    Re: Why is Rome one of the most visited places in the world?

    I think that the main reason is the cultural value of the city of Rome. Civilization was born there, like many of the humankind inventions. The architectural aspect of the city is breathtaking. Also, there's Vatican, the heart of the Catholic world. I can find a million reasons to go to Rome, I actually been there a few years ago. I loved the Colloseum and Fontana di Trevi. Not to mention Saint Peter's Cathedral in Vatican. It's simply beautiful, pure beauty. They don't say all roads lead to Rome for nothing. If you go to Rome, you can't go wrong.

    I believe that Rome is one of the most visited places in the world because of the architecture. When you think about places such as the Colosseum and Saint Peter's Cathedral, it is enough to take your breath away. The food (as everywhere else in Italy) is very good--and I love Italian food! I want to go there even more after reading Eat, Pray, and Love.

    What Attracts Tourists To Rome

    Rome is a hot tourist destination because of all the history and culture still left there after all the years that have passed.
    The architecture of the remaining buildings, cathedrals, plazas, and other structures that have survived for a very long time are still being studied and adored to this day.
    That, and the people who are very warm and welcoming to tourist and everyone alike.
    There are also breathtaking views that are to be cherished because most of Rome has not yet been industrialized or commercialized and I hope it stays that way.

    Re: Why is Rome one of the most visited places in the world?

    Hm... strata, I am sorry to say this but the only people who were welcoming and warm to me in Rome were those who tried to sell me something. I have been there for 2 weeks and I have met many locals, none of them said more than 2 words to me. I have family there so I wasn't that affected but still, it would have been nice to see more or at least 1 friendly local. Maybe they are too busy and that's why they sometimes ignore tourists. I don't want to make any general statement, but I haven't felt the warmth I felt in other countries. They were as cold to me as the walls of the Colosseum.

    Re: Why is Rome one of the most visited places in the world?

    I would definitely say it's because of the romance factor. Whenever someone asks me what I think are the most romantic places, Rome and Barcelona come to mind. Milan also seems like it would be really romantic, but for some reason I think of the nightlife vibe when it's mentioned. I know a lot of couples honeymoon there or go there to celebrate their anniversaries.

    There are many reasons to why Rome attracts so many people. First thing is the history and culture of Rome, established 2,500 years ago, you can imagine all the history that this city lived through. At one point, as most people know, Rome was the center of the former world power, the Roman Empire. As a tourist, you'll see many awesome structures from that era. It's also the only city that contains a state within it's boarders, The Vatican. Today Rome is modern city with a lot of fashion and arts. Its the 3rd most visited city in Europe and home to about 2.8 million people.

    Well, it must be because the city of Rome is where the pope lives, and there are a lot catholic people all around the world. I think the vast majority of tourists that go to Rome are mostly catholic. I'm not a catholic myself, but I know a lot people who have visited this city for the same reason. For me it's like any other city in Italy, nothing special about it, again... because I'm not catholic. Must be such an awesome place to visit for someone who is catholic... specially if they get to see the pope.

    I'd have to say that the Rome is not as great as one would think in the first place. As a frequent traveler I did enjoy the place, but it's certainly not in my top 10 of best cities I've been to.

    Re: Why is Rome one of the most visited places in the world?

    Ive had mixed experiences in Rome as a whole while it was easy to spend days in awe of the history, architecture and goings on I found myself on one occasion almost assaulted by a local "guide" because I refused to pay fro a photo I had taken of him dressed in his uniform outside the Colosseum, if I had been told that he expected to be paid I may have tipped him a Euro or 2 but because I seemed like a pushover tourist who would give in to the group,obviously dressed in the dame attire, it wasnt until a local stepped in and offered to help break down the communication barrier, that I was able to walk away with a better understanding of how tourists are smothered and made to feel threatened if they do not pay. I did end up walking not 30 metre away from this group to another who seemed to be hamming it up more than the rest, and gladly gave them a few Euro for the photos I took of them and with them. As mentioned before, Rome and a lot of other cities in Italy are great places for their own reasons, but personally they are not on my top ten

    The Spanish Steps may be the longest and widest staircase in all of Europe, but that's not what draws visitors to this popular tourist spot. A Barcaccia fountain bubbles at the foot of the steps while the Trinita dei Monti church rises above the crowds at the top of the steps.

    For the maximum uses we have for a certain thing and being a traveler brings out a lot of outcome that does impact it all for the approach we get to have an idea through niagara falls tours from new york makes a mark and that is something that always keeps on moving ahead with which is one fine way to approach it all for the best of it.
