One of the world’s most storied cities, there may not be another city that has impacted the modern world as much as Rome. Rome is overflowing with artistic masterpieces, historical relics, astounding architecture, and religious significance.
Italy’s most populous city also has a comfortable Mediterranean climate, excellent coffee, and an abundance of museums and art galleries. Obviously Rome is a great place to see where modern civilization came from, but it’s also a great place to see where the future of civilization is heading.
Rome has a diverse economy with strong service, research, banking, tourism, IT, and aerospace industries. The city has also become a rich hub for startups in recent years. This is in large part due to its strategic position in the center of Italy, along with its many respectable universities perform research at and recruit talent from.
Many large corporations such as Google, Microsoft, Gartner, and IBM have offices in Rome as well. This combination of rapidly developing startups and established mega corporations makes the city an excellent place for professionals whether they are looking to network, build a client list, or simply find their first job out of university.
Unfortunately, one thing that turns people off about Rome is the notion that the city is expensive. While being a tourist in Rome can be pricey, taking a coworkation in Rome can easily be done on a budget.
