The Im­pe­rial Fo­rum, the Colos­seum, the ‘Mouth of Truth’ and the Do­mus Aurea. The roots of Rome’s splen­dour can be found in the clas­si­cal age, when the city was the cen­tre of a vast em­pire that con­trib­uted to the spread­ing of in­cred­i­bly ad­vanced stan­dards of civ­i­liza­tion. The an­cient ru­ins from that era are among the world’s best­loved and most sought-af­ter tourist at­trac­tions. Like­wise, es­pe­cially be­tween the Re­nais­sance and Baroque pe­ri­ods, Rome’s role as the cap­i­tal of Chris­tian­ity con­trib­uted to mak­ing it the cen­tre of the artis­tic world with a con­cen­tra­tion of art­works that was un­ri­valed else­where. Many of the world’s most cel­e­brated artists were sum­moned by popes to come to Rome, where they left be­hind master­pieces of im­mea­sur­able beauty.
