In the Footsteps of Emperor Hadrian is the name of the program announced by The Councillor for Economic Development and Tourism of the Lazio Region in Italy (Rome). It is going to be a joint venture with the British Museum. At the major exhibition in London dedicated to Emperor Hadrian some visitors to the show may win weekends in Lazio, the province of Rome, Italy. The initiative, called ‘Sulle orme di Adriano’ (In the Footsteps of Hadrian) is in addition to the promotion of religious tourism, with itineraries amongst sanctuaries and abbeys and boat excursions on the Tiber River. Over the last few months tourism from South America, Mexico and Brazil has increased and tourism from the United States is at 25 percent. Of course, eternal Rome and its province is always a popular destination with its many ancient ruins, hill-top towns and super museums. more on to visit Rome
