“Going back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

All the way down from the Colosseum to the piazza Vittorio Emmanuelle is just astonishing. The ancient forum, then across into the old town once you get past via Nazionale. Just a myriad of little winding streets with an eclectic mix of cafes and ice cream shops, and anything else which you'd expect to find in a cliche of Rome. But this is the real deal, and when you find a small cafe full of locals, you know you're onto a gem

“Wander, Get Lost, Enjoy; Repeat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

One of Rome's greatest treats is its ambiance. Sure, there are noisy scooters, crowded streets, and the ever-present fear of petty theft, but that's all part of the experience. (Well, I hope the petty theft part isn't part of your experience.) Wander the narrow streets, duck into a few churches where you can marvel at the art and rest your feet, enjoy the piazzas and their fountains, eat at a sidewalk cafe, and enjoy the experience.

“outdoor museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is an absolutely amazing place.Orient yourself with the river and you won't get lost.Everything is old and important.Stop someplace any have a drink and slowly take in the sites.Keep your purses close to your body and try to be aware of people behind you as pickpockets are around.Don't let the pickpockets ruin your visit just be aware.

“The whole centre is an endless museum!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

You feel the history in every single place of Rome and you are astonished! Most of the places are ever so romantic but also are great inspirations of art. Otalina culture is ever so unique and it has been kept untouched in the historical centre. Food ouaou so yummy. Dont miss the gelato "Amarena" flavor.....it deserves the extra calories. It is the perfact balance of taste and excercise since you feel like you want to walk everywhere!
