Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Rome is the largest city and the county seat
of Floyd County, Georgia, United States.
It is the principal city of the Rome, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of Floyd County.
As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 34,980, and is the largest city in Northwest Georgia.
Though no Interstate highway passes through Rome, it is the largest city near the center of the
triangular area defined by the Interstate highways between Atlanta, Birmingham, and Chattanooga,
which contributes to its importance as a regional center in several areas, such as medical care and education.
Rome's name is a commemoration of the Italian city of Rome.
Rome, Georgia, was built on seven hills with a river running between them, a feature that was an
inspiration for the name.
This connection is emphasized by a replica of the statue of Romulus and Remus nursing
from a mother wolf, a symbol of the original Rome, which was a 1929 gift from the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
