This should be Rome's first stop If that's your first time in Rome, i suggest to go with some public transport close by the area and get lost into centro storico. Than add to the tour the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour and a walking tour to Trastevere zone.

The Centro Storico is fascinating! It's like going back in time 2,000 years! The Coliseum, the ruins of what was the center of the old Roman Empire, the magnificent columns still standing after so many centuries...It's incredible!

The best way and only way to see the Centro Storico is on foot. Stroll through the narrow streets, look up and admire the buildings around you since the magnificent architecture never fails to impress. Wander in and out of churches since often the most unassuming building has the most spectacular interior. My favourite route on foot takes me from... More

Centro storico is absolutely magical, especially in the evenings. It is a must-see, and I recommend finding a hotel in this area if possible. It was fabulous to step out of our hotel and be smack-dab in the center of Rome's history. The lighting in the alleys is a dream for photographers, with a new photo opportunity around every corner.... More

My husband and I decided to tour France and Italy for our 3 week honeymoon in late August. One word describes my honeymoon...Amazing!!! There is so much culture, history and breathtaking art to take in...3 weeks just wasn't enough time..so we're planning another trip back! Sightseeing throughout Rome takes a bit of walking around by foot, so start your days... More

Simply a pleasure to stroll around these wonderful shop and restuarant lined streets. Only downside is the amount of beggars and bangladeshie street traders, i will be suprised if there are any left in there own country. Would have been 5 stars except for the hassling

You cannot be in Rome and not stroll down the narrow streets and alleys taking you from Piazza Navona to Piazza della rotonda to Fontana di Trevi. You can sit in a Cafe in one of the piazzas or have a nice dinner in a restaurant or just enjoy a gelato on the go. This whole area is fun and... More

Was in an apartment complex. Very quiet neighborhood. Price was fair. Room was okay, and more like a bed and breakfast.. Clean.. Could have had mor than packaged danish for the free continental breakfast, but overall good value! Very nice place to be

Nice, we've seen before. Liked the Fontana de Trevi. Nice historic city. We've liked it very much. We preference this city upon another cities in Europe.

You'll need at least a whole week: tons of monuments, landscapes and point of interest to view. Obviously don't miss the opportunity to loose yourself rounding every corner you find interesting (but don't forget a map!). You'll see ancient fountains, columns, locals... could be crowded if sunny. Buy a sandwich in a "Salumeria" (less than 3€), cheap and tasty.
