We had a great time exploring some of the backstreets away from the main sights. It's well worth doing as you'll stumble upon quaint churches and squares, and it's fun having some time without a set agenda.

So many tourists are so caught up in all the "must-see" sites, and while those are important, don't forget to just roam around soaking in everything about the city itself: the culture, history, architecture, people, GELATO, food, etc. I was lucky enough to study in Rome for four months in the center of centro storico and that is one of...

Just wander around the area, poke down the alleys, following the map you will still get lost but you may find a delightful restaurant or shop, a cafe or a historic building.

The Eternal CIty... Culture, Civilization, History,... it's all here. Rome is a city to be cherished and enjoyed at a slow pace. Tourists usually miss the subtle nuances of the city and it's magic.

There is so much history in Centro Storico that you don't have to venture very far to continuously stumble upon the "next" site!! Put on your walking shoes and go!
