Food glorious Food!!!
Rome is truly a beautiful city! The Roman Forum/Palatino gardens are a must see- walking through the ruins of an ancient city is just mind blowing. Don't even get me started on the food- tiramisu, gelato, pasta, canollies galore! The travestere neighbourhood is also a must-see to get a feel for local living, food and culture.
Insider Tip:The Vatican- buy tickets online to skip the long line ups Coliseum- go to the Roman Forum/Palatino Gardens entrance to buy tickets (1 reg ticket covers both the Coliseum and Forum/ Palatino gardens) as the line up is nothing compared to the one at the Coliseum To get the feel for local life and food go a bit off the beaten path. I went to this delicious and unforgettable local restaurant that has been around for centuries called "Cantina Cantarini"- I had the sole with asparagus and tirimisu!!
