According to legend, the city of Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of Mars, on April 21, 753 BC.
The young boys were abandoned in the hills that overlook today's city, where they were suckled by a she-wolf. Romulus was crowned the first King and named the original hill top area Palatine after himself.
The famous "seven hills" surrounding the area continue to be an important part of Rome, as does the she-wolf who is the city's symbol.
Visitors to Rome are touched by her timeless beauty and vast size. It's Italy's capital city, the country's largest and most populous municipality, covering about 2,000 square miles and populated by five million people. It has been the Episcopal seat of the Popes since the 1st century AD. Vatican City, one of the many enclaves of Rome, is the sovereign territory of the Holy See and smallest nation in the world.
