Rome, the capital of Italy, is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula along the Tiber River with a history beyond 2,500 years making it one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe. It boasts evidence of Roman mythology and culture having been the capital of the Roman Empire, and thus is considered the birthplace of Western civilization. Italy was the host to many famous artists and influential historical figures, including Roman emperors, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Bernini. Within the city, is The Vatican which is a separate country where the Pope resides.
