Rome was founded by Romulus in 753 B.C. Rome's history and monuments make it a unique city. Millennia of history have left behind a heritage of arts, culture and architecture in Rome. Many historical remains have survived in the old city, such as the Palatine Hill associated with ancient Rome, the Coliseum Amphitheater and the Caracalla baths.
