Walking around in the centre of Rome is one of the best experiences in Italy. Monuments, churches, fountains, historical buildings, ancient ruins ... One day is not sufficient to visit the old town centre. You can sit and have a nice coffee in beautiful quite corners of Trastevere, enjoining Italian ice cream and food. Unforgettable.

The Artemide Hotel is situated in the Centro Storico, so it was within reach of most of the major sights such as the Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Pantheon, and many of the lovely piazza's and churches. The Vatican is a further distance away, but is walkable if you are fit! Otherwise all can be reached by bus, Metro or... More

This was my 3rd trip to Rome and I was so disappointed by the noise and the crowds. Centro Storico helped to restore my sanity. It is an old part of town with small, twisty streets and few tourists. We actually walked for several hours and did not hear any English being spoken. Not a flashy or touristy site, but... More

We were lucky to go to Rome last year, and also in May this year. It is an absolutely beautiful, vibrant, bustling city, that makes you feel extremely insignificant! My advice would be; wear the most comfortable shoes that you own, buy the rough guide to Rome, as it's so informative and the map is brilliant, and see and experience... More

Walking in the old town is like being on a treasure hunt. Whereever you go there is always something new to explore, walls, statues, buildings, stores, signs - everything is so genuine!

The grandeur of all the monuments to make me feel insignificant as I stood by them, the wonder of how they were built

It's a long walking day. Too touristy. Restaurants are all over as well as street vendors. Churches and churches to visit. Pavers. Streets and people smoking everywhere

Only visited the Pantheon which was impressive and it contains Raphael's tomb. The architecture is interesting and the marble is stunning. Pity people were so noisy as they are supposed to remain quiet. Sadly, not enough time to visit more places in this area.

Rome is full of these little lanes and whether night or day, there will always be something happening. certainly worth a walk if you have the free time
