The city began as a small settlement established by twin Brothers Romulus and Remus nearly 2,500 years ago.
"All Roads lead to Rome" refers to the fact that all roads literally began in the city of Rome and expanded out to the provinces. The Umbilicus urbis Romae, a large cone shaped monument, marked the center of the city and Republic.
Augustus Caesar added the Milliarium Aureum which stood across from the Umbilicus urbis on the Rostra (the speakers Platform for political speeches). It was engraved with all of the Provinces of the Empire at that time and the distance from the monuments.
Today the "Eternal City" is considered , perhaps, one of the most romantic locations on Earth. Ancient edifices, music, good food and a long history is what Rome is most known for.
