ROME, "Caput Mundi"
Caput Mundi, is a Latin phrase taken to mean "capital of the world". The city of Rome adopted this nickname, attributing it to its perception of an enduring power of Ancient Rome and the Roman Catholic Church. Rome was founded in 753 BC by Romulus. Roman legend says that Romulus had a twin brother called Remus. As babies they were abandoned in the area which later became Rome. A she-wolf found and raised them, but when they grew up Romulus fought and killed Remus and became the first ruler of Rome!

Transport in Rome, are not really good, but I am sure that if your just visiting and staying in the center it will be not that bad like it is for local people living in the suburbs. This is the map of the underground in Rome.
My advice is to use underground or walk.
The buses are slow because of the traffic and not reliable.
