According to legend, the city of Rome was originally founded on April 21st 753 BC. The city then became successfully the capital of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and then the Roman Empire, which dominated most of western and southern Europe, as well as the entire Mediterranean region, from the 1st century BC until the 5th century AD.

Today Rome is a modern vibrant capital, but also containing many ancient and renaissance buildings (the city escaped relatively undamaged from World War II). Although capital of the Italy, the city also contains as an enclave the State of the Vatican City, the smallest internationally recognized sovereign nation in the world.
