The city was the heart, soul and the body politic of UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic (UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire not so much, [[TheArtifact towards the end]], the capital shifted to Milan and Ravenna, while the Eastern UsefulNotes/ByzantineEmpire was administered from Constantinople). The historian Livy titled his book Ab Urbe Condita (From the Founding of the City). It was surrounded by seven hills: Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal, Viminal. The words capital and palace derive [[TropeNamer from two of the hills]] and their importance to administration and expensive real estate. It [[LongRunners is one of the oldest cities of the world]], being continuously inhabited since at least 1000 BC, and certainly the first major city of its kind, boasting a population of 1 million by First Century BCE and expanding greatly in size and scope during the height of the Empire. The river Tiber flows through the city, and owing to the Republic and later the Empire, it and other aspects of the city architecture and topography have entered PopCulturalOsmosis.

The ideas most people about AncientGrome, i.e. the amazing architecture and large buildings comes from the era of UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire. The major monuments from the Etruscan era is the famous Cloaca Maxima sewage system (which the Romans were justifiably proud of even in the Ancient days), and from the Republican era, there is the Roman Forum or the ruins of it, which was largely leveled and rebuilt by UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} and from him and the later Emperors comes such monumental buildings as the Colosseum/Flavian Amphitheater (commissioned by Vespasian and completed under Titus), the Pantheon (commissioned by Hadrian), Trajan's Market (completed by Trajan), and the baths of Diocletian and Caracalla. The Tomb of Emperor Hadrian was converted by later Popes into a castle and taken as a residence in Castel Sant'Angelo, which at one point was the tallest structure in Western Europe.

As a modern city, Rome is the largest city and urban area in Italy, as well as the fourth-most populous city proper in the EuropeanUnion (after UsefulNotes/{{London}}, UsefulNotes/{{Berlin}}, and UsefulNotes/{{Madrid}}, and just ahead of UsefulNotes/{{Paris}}). As the capital, it is the center for the Italian government and much economic activity, although Italy's industrial, financial, and design capital is in the northern city of Milan. Modern Rome, being built on, well, Ancient Rome and Medieval Rome, can be extremely difficult city to get around, and traffic is always ''terrible''. It doesn't help that [[DrivesLikeCrazy Roman drivers have a deserved reputation for insanity]]. This is often the first thing modern Romans mention to visitors, or complain about to each other. And don't think you can avoid this by taking public transit; the bus drivers are just as insane as the other drivers, and while Rome does have a Metro, it's surprisingly lacking because (again) Modern Rome is built on Ancient Rome and Medieval Rome means that building it goes very slowly and expensively due to the tendency of serious digging in Rome to reveal some valuable artifact or other. [[UsefulNotes/VaticanCity Vatican City]] is technically a separate country within the city of Rome, as it is the last remnant of the Papal States.
