The Grandeur of Rome has inspired writers, poets, and artists for centuries and one of the most noted, Lord Byron, declared: "Oh Rome! my country! city of the soul!" Interestingly, Rome could very much be considered an accidental city in origin and later architectural design and here we will explore some of the magnificent monuments of this Eternal City that continues to enchant us today.

Starting with the origin of Rome and its accidental birth as a city that would eventually become the center of two of the greatest empires in history - Pagan and Papal, we will discover the magnificent art and architecture that still today displays the Grandeur of Rome. Looking at the monuments that tell the story of this great city, often seen through the words of writers, we will encounter, amongst others, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and the Trevi Fountain.
