Rome is the Eternal city.

Rome is without doubt one the most beautiful cities in the world; every year millions of visitors come from around the world to admire the treasures and masterpieces of Roman art and architecture.

The many monuments and attractions of Rome cannot be described in a short paragraph, but many websites give information on travel, lodging, visiting, dining, and enjoying Rome.

If possible, plan to stay after the Conference, and join one of the many guided tours conveniently provided by the many tour operators available.

After all, Rome wasn't built in a day — it can’t be seen in one, either!
