General opinion:  Rome is historically magnificent and has much to do for those who seek city holidays. If you are into food and wine there is a lot of varied experiences that will entice you to literally spend numerous days just trying new restaurants. However, make sure to visit Vatican City, the Parthenon and of course places like the Colosseum and Forum. These sites will not only remind you of the cultural significance of this bustling city, but if you are a film fanatic, La Boca (the mouth of truth) and of course The Trevi Fountain will remind you of numerous films you may have appreciated. Ask knowledgeable ... More hotel staff to help plan trips and recommend places to eat, but don't be scared to use the city's hop on - hop off busses as well. These give a great tourist view and easy access to many sites.

General opinion: Wonderful place, historical, well connected & well kept. Would like to visit again. Group passes for Public transport are cheap & useful. Flowing water from any fountain is potable so do not waste money on bottled water anywhere in Rome. Use toilets of any nearby cafe or restaurant free of charge, none can refuse else u can report to the authorities. Keep sufficient number of days to visit Rome, after all, it wasn't built in a day.

General opinion: It's Rome!!! What more can be said. There are so many famous and historical sites to see and visit it is hard to list or prioritize. From the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain to the Vatican and the Coliseum. Churches, galleries and museums galore. It's very easy to get around the city and you will find the Roman people for the most part are friendly and hospitable. Take the time to plan your days ahead of time to maximize the attractions you wish to see.

Shopping and Souvenirs: If you walk to the historic centre don't only stop in the main streets, let yourself be captivated by the many small streets where you will find many fine shops and workshops. The best areas are Trastevere for nightlife, it's a typical old neighborhood, and the whole area around Corso Vittorio Emanuele (Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, etc. ..)

Shopping and Souvenirs: Craft items are too expensive. Roman food is good, the Eternal City is nice just for the air that you breathe, it's between the ancient and modern world. The sea near Rome offers relaxation, nature, and fun. I experience Rome with all the pleasure of living in a wonderful city which is still easy to live in....

The accessibility: It's wonderful, it would take weeks to see it ALL. It's best to find accommodation near the city centre. There is more than enough public transport. It's practically impossible to see it all on foot. There are lots of places where you can book just your accommodation, ask in welcome centers for tourists.

Packing List: I had good weather, the sun was with us the whole of our stay and the temperature was high, considering it was the end of October, so I recommend dressing in layers and no thermal jackets. I recommend cotton shirts because you sweat less and they're allergenic.

The accommodation: The Hotel Edera, the location is great, close to the Colosseum and the park. The single rooms are comfortable and cosy. The breakfast is standard. It's not a great hotel, but it's very nice, the staff is quite friendly. Everything was very good, there were no problems.

Surroundings and tours: It's spectacular - you can't die without seeing Rome. From culture to shopping, from entertainment, shows, theatre, etc. to the characteristic bars, pubs, restaurants and more. And then THE VATICAN. What else can I say? Go and see it. If you've seen Rome ... you've seen it all!

Eating and Drinking: Classic Italian cuisine that never fails, try the fried Roman food which you can find in the best takeaways across the city (including the centre), such as the carciofo alla giuliana (artichoke), the cervelletto fritto (fried brain), unique dishes from the secular Roman tradition.

Packing List: Rome is very beautiful, you have to have a lot of time to see it. Take comfortable clothes. There are really nice shops that are affordable for everyone. For getting around, there's public transport, such as the metro, at great prices. There are great restaurants, the nights are great and there's excellent entertainment in the streets. During the Christmas season the city is very beautiful and romantic, beautiful in every way.

Eating and Drinking: The local cuisine ... you can't not love a good meal in a traditional trattoria in Trastevere ... and you go out for a breath of fresh air and you always find places open and people willing to have a laugh ... and then waking up the next morning and taking a trip to the market in Campo De'Fiori or Via Sannio or Portaportese ...

Best Period to Go: It 's always beautiful and inspiring, there isn't a precise time to go... but perhaps for convenience and practicality it's better in the summer! At Christmas you can't miss St. Peter's Square with the giant nativity scene and the huge tree. In summer, you can walk around without scarves, hats, coats, etc. .. it's more comfortable!

Surroundings and tours: Everything in Rome is beautiful: you can't miss a visit to the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti and the Vatican with the splendid Basilica of Saint Peter and the Vatican Museums, without forgetting the Sistine Chapel. The churches to visit are endless, don't forget to visit Castel Sant'Angelo and why not, even Montecitorio.

The accommodation: My daughter and I went to Rome and we were lucky enough to stay in the centre, at my firend's house. However, we know that there are plenty of hotels and B&Bs and religious institutions of various prices. The low-season, even if the weather is hot, is August.

Best Period to Go: Spring, May, with the steps of Piazza di Spagna full of azaleas, the mild climate, the Roseto comunale in full bloom. For the latter, I suggest you book a guided tour, it's very interesting. Early autumn is great too, for the famous Roman "Ottobrata": there's a particular light, which, if possible, adds to the beauty of this magnificent city.

Nightlife and entertainment: IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND IT'S FULL OF EVENTS. THE HISTORY THAT YOU STUDY IN SCHOOLBOOKS DOESN'T COMPARE. IT'S SUPERB! GO THERE AND ASK TOUR OPERATORS FOR ADVICE. YOU CAN ALSO GO ROUND THE STREETS AND SHOPS THANKS TO A CONTINUOUS TRANSPORT SYSTEM, METRO BUS AND TAXI.
