I'm not from Rome and I travelled a lot around the world but no city center on the globe can be comparable to Rome. Walking in the streets in the evening is awesome, every place, square or building merits attention. Once you can look at a Bernini fountain, once at a Borromini church, once at a Raffaello painting, once at... More

The old town streets may be ever busy, but it's a delight to get away from the traffic that plagues the main roads around it, and just amble down looking at the shops that are open late, or popping into a gelateria. Such a lovely experience being able to roam freely to take in the atmosphere and the architecture.

Rome is so enchanting. You can find surprises around every corner. Just walking around aimlessly, you find so much history and treasure. We love this city.

We only had one day to visit the area but what a beautiful experience this was! A short walking distance from the main bus station (Termini). The whole area is truly magnificent. There is a lot of armed security everywhere so is also safe to visit. Highly recommended

Well, what is there to say, except that Rome's historic center is amazing! If you are at all interested in history, there is so much to explore, and more than you might realize at first glance. Of course, there are iconic monuments like the Colosseum, but even little things like the chance to take a drink of water from an... More

Most beautiful city center in the world, by far. Roam around, get lost, enjoy lunch and dinner. Having lived in this part of town for some time now, I can only recommend it. A Roman must (but you cant really avoid it either)

How do you rate the centre of the most beautiful city in the world? Quite a tall order if you ask me. But obviously it can only be five stars.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
