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 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.
