The way to Rome
How to move in Rome
The way to ICM 2003
Except for EC citizens, a valid passport is required for everyone wishing
to enter Italy.
Roma, the Eternal City, has always attracted tourists from all over the
world for its beauty and charm, its unforgettable monuments, architecture
and invaluable arts which testify to its unique history and destiny.
A large number of Romans use this time for holidays, therefore the more popular tourist attractions, museums, shops and galleries are less crowded. Of course the Congress Center, as well as most indoor cultural facilities, restaurants and shops are air conditioned.
