Rome is Amazing

Amazing the way they are still so well preserved but all of Rome is like that, only thing to watch out for is some coffee shop really rip you off we paid 12 Euro in one place.

We bought tickets online for the Coliseum and forum. After visiting the Coliseum my partner lost his ticket. We went to the ticket office at the Forum to explain what had happened. He had with him photo id- his passport and the printed receipt for the tickets we purchased in his name on that day online and I still had... More

We went as part of a tour which included the underground Colosseum tour. Excellent tour guide and well worth a visit and the guide tells you all you need to know. No guide you will not know what everything is. Real Rome Tours were our tour operator. Meet on site and small groups and well worth the spend.

over the top for seeing history up close. There was so much more to see then I had imagined. I saw lots of people with guides and overheard some of them and it seems like I missed out on a ton of info by not having a guide. So I would say get a guide so you know what your... More

A touch of ages, a feeling of history. It is almost unreal to walk on the streets that are thousands years old.

This might be one of the better attractions to see in Rome. Lots of history. Very well presented. Definately worth seeing. Plan to spend about an hour...

The fee for this site is combined with your Colosseo tickets. There is a guide with a map on display of the land but still it would make more since if you study a bit before going for a better connection. If you run out of water you can refill your water bottle at the fountain. It's a very interesting... More

This is a combined ticket with the Colosseum. We used our Roma pass to access both. We had a private guide which was extremely helpful -- i'm not sure you can glean all of the history and what you're seeing without one. Even though you're seeing ruins, it's fascinating to learn what archaeologists have been able to ascertain about the... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
