On April 21, Rome celebrates its 2771st birthday. Legend has it that the city was born in 753 BC when the twins Romulus and Remus, who were brought up by wolves, fought over Palatine Hill and Aventine Hill, resulting in the death of Remus. While the story has been passed through the generations the city now celebrates its history with gladiator battles and lavish firework displays.

Rome is one of the most iconic cities in the world, an eternal city where history is awaiting to be discovered at every corner and vibrant with a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Join us commemorating the birthday of one of the most beautiful capitals.
