Stay here if you want to see all the main sights of Rome on foot, and maybe venture further afield via public transport. Off season it is easy to get everywhere on foot, Rome is a compact city and easy to navigate, although there are lots of pleasant surprises not shown on the tourist maps.

This district gives one an honest & true feeling of what it's like to live in Rome for the lucky locals who dwell here. It has it all - shops of all descriptions, stores, art, architecture, ruins, restaurants, snack shops & rew simply tourist distractions. Perfect to explore after seeing St Peters & the Vatican.

I had visited Rome more or less by high-speed necessity 20 years previously, but nevertheless found it a limitless fount of delights for the explorer. Of course the things that delight a man of 33 are not the same for a man of 53, but the Eternal City continued to amaze and delight. Every corner is a chance for a... More

We walked for hours and loved it. Every street has something to see. You will find piazzas all over with restaurants, cafes, shops, fountains and people enjoying life. Don't buy bottled water when sightseeing. There are water fountains all over and the water is cold, delicious and free.You do need to be vigilant of pickpockets.

Simply unique and unbeatable place to visit and live. Art, architecture, archeology, elegant restaurants and cheap trattorie, lot of atmosphere. I suggest to take an urban hike at night. Simply magic, even in winter and/or with bad weather.

Since you will be at St Peters anyway, take some time to walk the small streets and find some interesting shops and great eateries

The area around the birthday cake is a really interesting combination of huge, busy piazzas and tiny streets with even tinier alleys where you can find a great little restaurant, a place to buy a little treasure, or just a beautiful view. The Storico bustles with tiny piazza where you can buy a coffee and enjoy an hour. Explore... wonderful... More

History everywhere and awesome ruins. We enjoyed everything we saw and took some great pictures. On the other hand, our feet hurt from walking.
