Map of Rome
Rome Area Map
Rome, the capital of Italy, is in the middle of the country, equidistant from Sicily in the south and the Italian Lakes and Alps in the north. Nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the banks of the River Tiber, the 'eternal city' of Rome spreads over the fabled seven hills and is steeped in more than 2700 years of continuous history.
'All roads lead to Rome'. Once the centre of a civilization that stretched from the west of Britain to the Middle East, the foundations of the ancient Roman roads have been used in trading and transport throughout the millennia and fan out to the furthest reaches of the ancient empire.
For the modern traveller Rome is a major centre for international and Italian domestic flights. Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino International Airport (ROM/FCO) is 26 kilometres (16 miles) south-west of Rome serving the majority of the city’s international fights, whilst Ciampino Airport (CIA), 13 kilometres (eight miles) south-east of Rome, handles domestic flights and international charters.
