City of Rome spoilt, sadly (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

metropolis

Here is my best explanation:

'city' is the definition.

('metropolis' can be a synonym of 'city')

'rome spoilt sadly' is the subsidiary indication.

'sadly' indicates anagramming the letters.

'rome'+'spoilt'='romespoilt'

'romespoilt' is an anagram of 'metropolis'.

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for metropolis that I've seen before include "Chief city", "Very large city", "Major city of region", "Big city" and "Urban centre".)
