The city is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio (Latium), along the shores of Tiber River. Vatican City is an independent country within the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason, Rome has been often defined as capital of two states.

One of the most important cities, Rome, was founded in 753 B.C. by Romulus.
