    This attraction is free to enter which is nice as most things in Rome are expensive! You can take photos here, but make sure you wear modest clothing before entering.

    Immense and full of history. Great family activity. Ok with a trolley (lift) for the colosseum but not for the mount palatin and foro roman.

    I have no idea what anything is in the forum, as we were traveling with our kids, ages 5 and 8. We let them follow their nose, and just enjoyed a morning exploring the ruins.

    We found out way to a secluded spot with an absolutely amazing view of the Colosseum and not a single other person in sight. So, feel free to wander and get off the beaten path!

    We let our kids, ages 5 and 8, just follow their noses throughout the hills and pathways, acting as real archaeological explorers.

    There are a handful of plaques outside some of the buildings, and they were short enough that we could read them and relay the information to the kids to help fuel their imagination.

    At the top - where the overlook to the forum is - we were fortunate to find some garden sprinklers keeping the tiny patch of grass green and lush. They spent a VERY happy 20 minutes soaking themselves on a very hot day in the spray, which gave them the energy to keep on exploring!!

    This piazza has become my favorite locale in all of Rome. It has a sense of place all its own from the beautiful Bernini fountain to the excavations to the church Sant’Agnese in Agone to Tre Scalini restaurant's Pasta al Vongole finished with Tartufo Tre Scalini. I left my heart in Piazza Navona!

    This is a stunning basilica with a short security wait before entering. All the chapels are full of art, you are able to purchase masses for loved ones written in a beautiful velum card and mass is offered on the hour in differing chapels . It was over 100 degrees outside but peace and tranquility reigned inside, our mass was well attended for 11am with organ music. Confessions are offered in multiple languages and all the brothers and staff we interacted with were warm and friendly. Outside they have cold bottled water for a euro and a cold frozen treat named after a miracle. A beautiful way to start your day.

    Always busy but something to be seen when visiting all the same. Go at 7am if you can as it’s rarely busy at this time. Chuck your coin in

    Winding cobble stones alleys, lots of vendors selling things. You can drink the water for free, and then save your money for fashion and food.

    We spent a few hours winding around exploring. It was a great little place, and probably one of the most interesting I've seen.

    Love the castle. A magic place where all good energies of the universe converge. Been here five times. Do NOT visit the bar. Chaotic service, no gluten free options. No will to make even the smallest effort.

    The Domus Aurea was the highlight destination of our time in Rome. The included virtual reality experience was memorable. All tours are guided by employees of the Domus site itself, versus any 3rd party tour operator. The guides may be archaeologists. As of the dates our travel, the archaeologists actively work the site Monday through Thursday and give tours Friday through Sunday. Also, at that time, the tickets were issued by a single authorized seller, which does not post on TripAdvisor. All the tours on TripAdvisor are sold by ticket resellers, who do not give the tours themselves, and there is a price markup. Search the web and tour books for the single authorized ticket seller. The payment on the ticket was unsuccessful with VPN enabled.

    More than you could ever imagine, no point in more detail than in other posts. Best to preorder tix AND print them out to avoid problems.

    I highly recommend a visit to Villa Borghese and please choose the guided tour, it is excellent. Julia was a brilliant guide, both knowledgeable and interesting, hitting all the marks. You cannot possibly know what Julia knew, and to not have that information at hand while taking in the art, would be a mistake. Wonderful visit.

    The best art in the best palace in Rome. Much better than the Barberini etc. AND has the world’s best Velazquez painting - Pope Innocent X. This is a MUST see.

    Beautiful city center. The one and only Rome. It feels like every building is historic and with great cultural meaning.
