Rome Rome, GA 30165 +1 706 295 5576(Tourist Information)
Geographically quite unlike any American city, the city of Rome is defined by its 3 rivers meeting right in the center, while at the same time being at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. This explains why it has been named after Italy's capital which was similarly built upon 7 rivers. The city acknowledges this commemoration by accepting a statue of Romulus and Remus nursing from a female wolf, in 1929 from the Italian tyrant Benito Mussolini. With no major interstate highways passing through it, this is easily one of the most cycle and pedestrian friendly cities, full of cute walking trails along the river embankments, Rome has often featured in Hollywood movies because of its wonderful setting.
