LONDON (7 October 2021) — The November issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month casts new light on Rome, one of Europe’s most alluring cities. History is etched deep into the marble bones of the Eternal City, but this is still a living, breathing capital, with its feet in the present and its eyes on the future. Set off into its distinctive neighbourhoods and see once-forgotten districts now revitalised, age-old recipes carefully maintained and ancient landmarks restored for the modern age.
Also in this issue, National Geographic Traveller announces the winners of its prestigious Photography Competition 2021, sponsored by Nikon. We reveal the stellar shots that most impressed our expert judges across six categories.
