Caput Mundi.

Although the beauty of Italy’s capital may be eternal, it’s possible to capture that beauty in a short video.

The French travel blogger and filmmaker Face du Monde is giving viewers a glimpse into Rome’s long-enduring magic in a 160-second tour of the city.

Sure, there are the the iconic places that everybody knows about—the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, the Pantheon—but the video also goes down Rome’s twisting alleys to capture magic off the beaten path.

The charm of Rome lies where the local and tourist spots meet—whether that’s renting a Vespa and battling the city’s infamous traffic or picking oranges straight off the tree in a garden.

Those who are inspired to book a trip to the Eternal City can follow Travel + Leisure’s guide to Rome and spend the time recreating their own filmworthy experiences.

Just remember to enjoy Rome responsibly. The beauty of the city will not stay eternal without the cooperation of its tourists. But as long as tourists can avoid defacing the newly-refurbished Spanish Steps, wading in the Trevi Fountain or scaling the walls of the Colosseum, all roads should continue to lead to Rome.
