“Walking in the Historic District”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

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.

We bought the tickets on internet, so we didn't get any enormous lines.

“What Rome is famous for!”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

Palatine Hill, Coliseum, The Forum, Pantheon etc - all worth a trip to Rome in themselves.

“Rome is beautifull, old city”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

There were no dislikes for us in Rome! We walked every day to the places to see. For us the best way too see Rome, bring a good map with you! Don't get in line in the morning for the Vaticanmuseum, wait till noon when the line disappears!
