Rome

The Italian capital, with a history spanning more than 28 centuries, is also home to the city-state of the Vatican, enclosed within its territory. To run in Rome is to admire its countless wonders, following the meanders of the streets and time.

The foundation of Rome is so ancient as to be mythical, earning it the nickname of the "Eternal City". It is said that all roads lead to Rome, in reference to the roads created during the Roman Empire. The diversity of possible routes, whether running or walking, tends to prove that, conversely, all roads begin here! Frequented by tourists since the 18th century, the presence of the papal headquarters and the pilgrimage to Rome make it a prominent place for Christians from all over the world. During your run, you will discover both the Roman remains, such as the Colosseum or Domitian's stadium, and the fortifications of medieval Rome, such as the Castel Sant'Angelo or the fortress of Ostia. On its legendary seven hills, surrounding the Tiber, there are also famous Renaissance palaces, as well as Baroque squares, a style born in Rome and represented, among others, by the Trevi Fountain. In the 19th and 20th centuries, many new roads were created, which you can walk or cycle along, admiring the neoclassical buildings of these periods. In contrast to its imposing past, the city turned resolutely towards the future in the 2000s. It has firmly oriented its economy towards new technologies, media and telecommunications. You can admire the Music Park or the new Congress Centre, which underline the continuity of architectural innovation in the Eternal City. By the way, the proud Latin city is twinned with only one city, Paris. The reason for this is, as the saying goes, that "only Paris is worthy of Rome, and only Rome is worthy of Paris".
