Colosseo

Since the days of the Roman Empire, the capitol city has been divided by the authorities in different areas – known in Latin as regiones – that over time have increased in number, thus following the city’s expansion. This happened on a regular basis until 1921, when a total of 22 different districts were defined.

vespa

Rome is a beautiful city that offers many advantages to those who live here for a long or short period of time, but it is certainly not a city where it’s easy to move around.
