So I'm planning a trip for my girlfriend and I to the wondrous sights of Rome.
The thing we're mainly interested in are the standard touristy things (Colosseum, vatican etc etc), however we're also very keen to sample the culture (restaurants, the food, the wine, any significant events & Latin bars)
However, when I had a quick browse on the internet a lot of the central hotels & B&B's were fully booked (oh dear!!)
So my question is two fold :)
1) Have I left it too late to book a hotel / B&B in the center of Rome? If so, are there any areas that have good travel links to the center?
2) Or should I leave to the very last minute in the hopes of cancellations?
Any general advice on the matter aside from, these questions is also greatly appreciated! I am a complete Rome newbie so advice on what to see & where to go is also something I'd find valuable!
This is a really special trip for me, as I'm a bit of a romantic, and I want to make this the best trip I can :)
