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, expensive but worth it.

    Rome is great, but expect to pay big bucks and expect crowds. If possible avoid. The summer and cross the river to get away from the tourists.

    Insider Tip:Avoid 2014 and 2015. They are renovating most monuments and all you see is scaffolding!

    Student trip to Rome

    Fab city with loads of sights to see and the beach only a 30min train from metro station (plus you can use the metro ticket!), food was gorgeous and the gelato amazing! I'd recommend going for 4/5 days at least to see everything and maybe buy vatican tickets online to avoid the queues.

    Insider Tip:Remember your ID and student card during the day - absolutely brilliant deals for students! Also don't eat in the main squares, but if you go just off them onto the side streets the eateries are full of locals and much better value for money.

    Follow the movies

    "Roman Holiday" and "Angels & Demons" You should watch these movies before visit to Rome at least. Then you could enjoy Rome more, during sightseeing around Rome.

    Rome, you like it or not

    For some reason, i didn't like Rome that much. It's remarkable and historical city of course but I think there's missing something that makes it a nice and homely town. If you like history this is the right place. Otherwise it's a little too big city for me that didn't offer me much. Big plus is Trastevere area. It was really nice, warm and intimate. There's lots of good and cheap restaurants and atmosphere is really nice there.

    Amazing attractions, the city itself did not charm me, but it's worth a visit to see all the amazing architecture and art.
