The oldest Chinese city and undoubtedly the most famous after Beijing, Xi’an rivalled Rome and Constantinople in both size and power. The remains of its ramparts bear witness to the strategic importance of the city, which was the last stage on the famous Silk Route. Its glory quickly declined around the 10C, but what Xi’an lost in splendour it has regained in vitality, to the extent that this city with a population of five million now boasts a flourishing tourism industry based around its extraordinary Terracotta Army.
