Founded on seven hills along the banks of the Italy's Tiber River, Rome has had a greater impact on the world than almost any other modern day city. Currently the capital of Italy, Rome holds about 2.7 million people and rests 12 miles inland from the Mediterranean Sea halfway down Italy's west coast. In the above image, the city appears as a grayish mass. The Tiber River wends its way down the center of the image and through the heart of Rome before flowing into the Mediterranean. The Coliseum, the Pantheon, and the rest of ancient Rome are located in the pinkish area at the center of the city on the big bend in the Tiber River.
