The Eternal City

Rome is Europe’s third most-visited city and one of the world’s major tourist destinations. As a result of its 14,000 years of history, the Italian capital is home to innumerable archaeological and artistic treasures, while panoramic views of the ancient city are afforded by the famous surrounding hills. Aqueducts and arches, roads and highways, plumbing and central heating were invented here, as was fast food. And talking of which, this is the place to try such delicacies as supplì, fiori di zucca, baccalà, and carciofo, as well as pasta and pizza. Alla romana, of course.

Discover Rome

Casina Valadier
Our Summit venue

Located at the heart of Villa Borghese, Casina Valadier is the jewel in the crown of the Pincian Hill, where many of ancient Rome‘s important families had their villas and gardens. It was built between 1816 and 1837 by the famous Roman architect and urban planner Giuseppe Valadier, who also worked on the nearby Piazza del Popolo.

The building is one of the most fascinating places in the Italian capital and just a short walk away from the Spanish Steps. As such, it is a favorite destination for both Romans and tourists, as the beautifully landscaped park with its history and art offers a wonderful view of the city.
