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

  • 100%


    The Eternal City

    So it was only a four day stay in Rome (one day trip to Napoli also). So it wasn't enough, that is my review, you cannot view Rome in just a few days, you can walk for hours and will never get bored.

    Insider Tip:Try the restaurantes further away from the touristic places, better prices and much more food!

    For the culture lovers

    There is a lot of historical buildings and museums to check out for culture lovers. Personally, I prefer nature and landscape, thus I liked the gardens alot. Vatican City is a must see, I went on a Wednesday which was just in time t attend the pope's blessing. There is also alot of good food around, do check out Tripadvisor for some suggestions. I really loved the crispy thin sheet pizzas.

    Insider Tip:THIN SHEET PIZZAS! take your time and soak in the beautiful city.

    Most beautiful and amazing city!!!

    Since I had been in Rome with my family about 10 years ago, it still felt all pretty familiar to me. But Rome, nevertheless, blew my mind again. Especially the Forum Romanum left a huge impression. It is a very humbling experience to stand midst of the ruins of ancient Rome's main square. After that you can walk up on Palatin hill just next to it where the Rome's high society used to live. From there you have an amazing view over the Forum and the Colosseum and can even see the Vatican!

    Insider Tip:Forum Romanum + Palatin + Colloseum for 12 €. Absolutely worth it! And one of my favorite places is Piazza Navona near the Pantheon!

    its more of a check list

    rome isnt my favorite city.. i prefer florence much more! There is just so much check list things to do that its hard to actually appreciate the city especially since everything is so spread out.. soooo spread out!

    Insider Tip:stay near the pantheon and be walking distance to everything.. buy your musuem tickets in advance and dont take ubers anywhere,, they will rip you off so hard!
