Great monuments. It's a magic place. I have lived tehre for 10 years and loved Rome, been exasperated by the traffic and lack of transport and no parking but there is just a wonderful feeling when you walk along the windy back streets breathing in the smell of coffee or you follow a crowd of people to Sant Eustachio because you have been told that you can't leave Rome without tasting that coffee. 511 churches and I had the dubious pleasure of visiting them all with my sister who was studying Fine Arts. Santa Maria della Vittoria with Bernin's, Saint Theresa in Ecstasy, San Francesco della Ripa with Bernin's Blessed Ludovica.
Rome is a city with history, culture. wonderful city in Europe to tour the way you want mostly walking. It was nice to see Colosseum, Trevie fountain, Victor Emanuel monument, Spagna, the ruins of old Rome and Trojan column, Forum, the baths and incredible St Peters Basilica and Vatican museum and Sistine chapel, walking along the river Tiber was an experience. Best tip: arrive at Rome airport and reach your hotel near Termini train station either by Leonardo express or terravision bus and back in the same way. No taxi or bus during the stay (4- 5 days), all by walking to out Rome is a wonderful experience.
