Centro Storico in Rome,,, is like being in a time machine..., a good guide book is invaluable ( i.e. The Companion Guide to Rome- Masson) ..... but simply walking around Centro Storico ,,, Historic District .... with eyes open... you will find untold surprises.... Roman Columns here... old steps there.... an ancient church full of world class artwork.. the lava cobblestoned streets.... old fountains... Walking around this area is like being in a "living museum "...... The Pantheon..... no mater how many times you visit this.... Hadrian's Temple to all God's... is always a special stop.. ( try to go early a.m. ... to avoid the massive summer crowds) ... A map ( and guide book) are helpful.. but sometimes just strolling around,,, getting "lost".... can make for a very unique and special time.... ( one suggestion... for your visit,, try to reserve your hotel within the Centro Storico area....so as to be in the heart of the Ancient City) as you will then be within walking distance to most of the sights that you will want to see.
