    I spent, sorry "wasted", my two days in this city. I didn't visit any museum due to both limited-time and money factors. As far as I'm concerned there is nothing to see in this city except Vatican and Collesium. Worst metro line I've ever seen. I don't get why people are so crazy about this city. The streets were full of rats and the smell of urine. Almost every metropolis cities have urine-smell but Rome's was significant! And also drivers were crazy. I recommend İstanbul, definitely!

    Insider Tip:Every sunday of each month, there is free entrance to Colessium. If you'll visit Italy on December be sure to check the places on which restoration process so that at least "you" can see the "Fontana di Trevi" :(

    Walking around this city and eating pizza and ice cream...it doesn’t get much better than that! :)

    Insider Tip:The Colisseum’s guided tour is the cheapest option in terms of tours, but it is not the best, as the information is pretty basic (watching Gladiator will do).

    “Nice location, nice room and nice colleagues working there.”

    Stayed here in November 2014 and it was an amazing stay. The location is really good as it is a walking distance to a metro station. The room was nice and clean and well ventilated. Would love to be back of course. Manuel.

    Rome trip

    Rome is an amazing city! Crowded of tourists even during low season then avoid high seasons for sure.

    Insider Tip:Book everything prior to visit to avoid queues. Vaticano museum is one good example once I spent 1 hour to buy my ticket in a low season. If you buy tickets on the internet you can skip the queue and just enter. If you are planning to travel to other Italy cities, book your ticket in advance as well to save money.

    Must visit for all those who love history

    I would highly recommend a visit to all those people who loves history and loves to travel. Rome is the best place where you can see some of the temples of Greek gods . I would highly recommend places like Roman forum and Colosseum. They are just a beauty for sight-seeing.

Italy: Itinerary

The only other European city which is on par with Rome in terms of history is Athens. While the Greek capital is home to the Gods, the Italian capital is home to the Emperors, most notably Julius Caesar. The city is fascinating as right beside some of the most beautiful landmarks in the world, Romans fly about the place going about their day to day business.
