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

    Rome is beautiful and so much history. I LOVED the city but honestly the people there are ridiculous. They urge you to buy something or come into their restaurant . I get everything is the same there and we are here not at home but come on it gets annoying. But I would recommend the hop on hop off tour for sure and oh the Trevo fountain is under construction..very disappointing

    A must visit destination.

    The Colosseum is located here. What is there more to say? And If you are a catholic, the Vatican city is here too. What is there more to say? You have to come.

    Insider Tip:Go early to the Vatican museum. I mean it. I will suggest go half to one hour before the museum open. The queue is really long.

    We were looking forward to Rome and in particular the Trevi Fountain which when we arrived was under construction so you couldn't see it properly. You had to queue for hours upon end to even get into anything. We wouldn't return to Rome again, for many reasons aside from the above.

    Many things to see

    For me, Rome is the city in Europe where you should stay as long as possible. In every single corner there is a fountain, a square or even roman toilet. Just awesome!

    Insider Tip:Near to circus maximus there's a mountain from where you can see Vaticano through a keyhole.

    We should have gone at another time of the year, because it was too full and too hot. Hugh cues everywhere. We went to Rome while doing interrail so we where only there for a few days and it was the last place on my list, so i guess i couldn't enjoy it that much as i has already been traveling for 17 days and i was tired any ready to go home.

    Insider Tip:The Colosseum is a must see, skip the cue with the Roma Pass you can get at tourist info points. Go after 2pm then cues are shorter. Look out nice affordable places for dinner on trip adviser before going out, instead of wondering around for ages trying to find something that is worth your money.
