Images Of Rome

There aren't many cities in the world like Roma. No matter which way you turn you set your eyes on imposing monuments, dramatic statues or lavish fountains. Walking around the streets today it is easy to envisage what it would've been like centuries ago when crowds thronged to the Colossuem, Caesar's foot soldiers paroled the streets and everyone was decked in sandals. Once darkness falls it isn't as lively as some other European cities, but if you don't find a bar which gets your pulse racing don't worry - the city looks twice as breathtaking at night.

Rome City Reviews

    I found the people in Rome quite aggressive with regards to your business. People are happy to provide directions but not too friendly otherwise. The most popular sites are very crowded and it can be exhausting. Actually most of Rome is very crowded and be prepared to be bumped into.

    Insider Tip:Arrive early to main sightseeing areas or buy tickets in advance. Hop on hop off busses are helpful.

    I surprising liked Rome a whole lot more than Venice. Maybe it had something to do with the weather? But the best part of Rome had to be the Vatican.

    Insider Tip:If you are going to the colosseum, buy your ticket at the Roman Forum instead. There's no line, and the ticket covers the Roman Forum, Colosseum, and Palantine Hill.

    So far, Rome is certainly my favourite city in Europe. I intended to spend 4 days there, but ended up spending 12.... and I am still not done. I would love to go back as soon as I can and redo everything I did and do everything I missed.

    Insider Tip:Check out the world's smallest movie theater, Cinema dei Piccoli, in Villa Borghese. If you are a film buff, catch an old movie at Casa Della Cinema at the hall right next to it. Try the Tramitzini.

    The ancient place, but not "The Eternal City"

    I always have dreamed about Rome. It has beautiful ancient historical places all around. So important in cultural aspect for mankind. It's itself the origin of the western culture. But unlike other cities in Italy, it's unstable, uncomfortable city. First of all, it should settle the security problem.And should come up with transportation issue. The Metro has only two lines. Also it's not easy to take a bus for the travelers. There's minority of official tourist center, but hard to find.
