An embrace. This is how Rome welcomes all...
"I live here in a state of peace and brightness I had no idea of, for long time I did not experience it. Every day a new wonder noteworthy, every day living, large images, travelling, a wholeness that has lived in thought and in the dream, but that the imagination was never able to grasp."
This is what Goethe wrote during his stay in Rome. And this is the feeling that captivates all who have discovered the Eternal City, Rome, the heart of Christianity, for more than 2,000 years.
In Rome and Italy we can experience the most important European architectural and artistic expressions, from the Etruscans to postmodern culture. On the other hand, Christian Rome give us the opportunity to be on a pilgrimage in the heart of the city: the Vatican museums, the cathedrals, gardens, bridges, domes—they all convey centuries of the history of Christianity, a millennial history that continues to leave astonished every pilgrim who comes to visit.
Walking through the streets you will be delighted by incredible corners; hidden behind such majesty we discover precious sites to contemplate, pray, admire and worship. The surprise and amazement, the nuances and light of the magnificent surfaces of the travertine marble, pages of the Gospel that become alive in mosaics, frescoes, in small and large churches—Christian Rome and Christian Italy enclose all of this in an extraordinary connection between spirituality, history and art.
