When it's time to see ruins in real life rather than on postcards, Campitelli calls. As the epicentre of the classical city, there’s no better place to explore the majesty of centuries-old Rome. Despite its unrivalled historical attractions, modern-day Romans tend to avoid this incessantly crowded district unless they make their living by extracting traveller money. Amid all the commotion, Campitelli's crumbling testaments to Rome's powerful past remain magnificently stoic. Ave Caesar, indeed.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood

It also led him to discover the many historical treasures of Rome, which he considers the greatest empire in history.
