Besides the Colosseum, walking the narrow streets that empty unexpectedly into piazzas dedicated to saints and boasting neighborhood eateries and bars, is a 24 hour experience that will allow you the time to appreciate the past, both yours and Rome's. Nostalgia is bound to hit you as you appreciate the way Romans lived (and live today). All of the neighborhoods... More

Taking a walk there means taking a walk to find out everything about that city. Historical buildings, beautiful roads full of people, a lot of street sellers and so on. It is amazing and what I really liked are people on the streets who are singing and playing instruments. Italy is special, but Rome and streets like those are amazing!

Wonderful part of Rome where you have all the famous landmarks, small alleys and some really good restaurants. Can walk here for days and still see new things. Best not to have a plan but just stroll around.

Turn left instead of walking down the main road from the Vatican and enter into this intimate, authentic neighbourhood. As with everywhere in the world that depends on tourists, people standing desperately outside of their restaurants can be tedious, but the smaller places at the other end of the road from the Vatican are cheaper and sweeter. The religious vestments... More

I would pick this location not only to enjoy the spirit of Rome, but also one of great locations to shop if you're actually interested in buying something original and authentic and not the chain brand stuff. Great cafes and ice cream parlours too!

This is a beautiful part of Rome, providing lots to see simply by walking about. The architecture is really beautiful and of course there are lots of places to stop for a drink or a nibble....
