Capital City of Italy - Area Information:
Italy has some fantastic real estate opportunities with property
in Rome being some of the finest.
A city so vast and rich in art, monuments and characteristic views
with so much history. Rome is not just the capital of Christianity
since the IV century, when Constantine granted the freedom of Christianity
- but also a meeting place for other religions, evident in the presence
of the synagogue, the mosque and the numerous churches belonging
to a variety of sects such as: Byzantine, Orthodox and Anglican.
The city extends over the other hills, Quirinale, Viminale, Esquilino,
Celio, Aventino and Capitolino.
Quirinale, the highest of the seven, has on its summit, Piazza Omonima, with
its colossal statues of the Dioscuri, Castore and the Palazzo del Quirinale,
where the president lives.
Next to Quirinale is Viminale hill, smaller in size and crossed by the long
Via Nazionale, and dominated by the huge Palazzo delle Esposizioni building.
