With an artistic heritage dating back to Etruscan times, Rome is one of the world's great art cities and a must for an Art and Design school tour.
Throughout history, it has played a starring role in the major upheavals of Western art and the results are there for all to see - amazing classical statues, stunning Renaissance frescoes, breathtaking baroque decor.
Walk around the centre and even without trying you'll come across masterpieces by the greats of the artistic pantheon - sculptures by Michelangelo, paintings by Caravaggio, frescoes by Raphael and fountains by Bernini. In Rome, art is not locked away from view, it's quite literally all around you.
