“Rome's Centro Storico is its essence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

Surely, one would not visit Rome for its modern neighborhoods. The Centro Storico is so rich in sites, it would make sense to sign up for organized tours of the forum and colosseum. At least jump on one of the jump on jump off bus tours to gain a perspective of the city before you plough in. The centro storico is so rich in art and antiquity you will be returning many times and then only scratch the service.

“Beauty everywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

The old ancient feeling hangs in the air where every you go. There is no ugly building- even the slightly run down ones in need of a paint job have the way of appearing special, unique and beautiful

“Full of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

The centre of Rome is a fantastic place to wander around, watch people and soak in the variety of architecture. It's rich in history, with a mix of well-known monuments and lesser-known but still fascinating site.

“Architectural heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

There is something on every corner. We actually had quite a strict itinerary which went out of the window a bit, as there were so many gems to see which we had not accounted for. This was not a bod thing though, it was a pleasant surprise.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

You have to see the historical center with the guide too otherwise it is pointless. You can be amazed by the architecture but it is best to know the background.
