Newest Review: ... they were able to attend, but they had the stands. The outside of the Colosseum was extremely busy, and we were warned to be aware of pick-pockets. There are loads of stands trying to sell souvenirs, be wary as we found all the stalls had similar items but a range of prices. I enjoyed getting to see the enormousness from the outside. Having heard mixed reviews about the inside I wasn't ... more

We went on a Mediterranean cruise for our honeymoon, and were fortunate to see some amazing places. I am hoping to slowly work my way through reviewing some of them. We were only in Rome for a day as part of the cruise, so with the limited time we had we opted to go on a tour (through the cruise ship company) that took us to the key places that we wanted to visit. Firstly, may I apologise for such a long review! I tried to keep things brief but there is just so much to share about this amazing city. === Rome in a Day! === Where to go if you only have a day in Rome? As many places as possible! As part of our tour we went ... Read the complete review

We visited Rome in April last year for a weekend. We were lucky and found a lovely apartment B&B 5 mins stroll away from the Colloseum, the location, we found, was perfect. Whilst the weather during the day was fine, not too hot, not too chilly, at night it rained. It was very funny to see the people who sold sunglasses during the day selling umbrellas at night! If you need either I suggest you haggle as they take £20 off at first time of asking when they'll settle for £5 (sunglasses that is). --Food-- We were disappointed with the quality of food; Rome and Italy has this great reputation of making delicious pasta dishes such as lasagne ...

Rome...what can I say. This really is the City to visit if you like culture, history, good food and long walks. Have you ever been somewhere and you feel as though you have travelled back in time? Well you will when you visit Rome. We visited in Rome in February and while it was cold and sometimes a little showery, it was a great time to visit without having to endure the hordes of tourists. Our visit to Vatican City was amazing, with no crowds or queues. It is easily accessible from the metro station and can be reached in a few minutes down a lovely shopping street. Although In peak season I wouldn't like to hazard a guess at how busy this street ... Read the complete review

This will probably be a long review but there is just so much to say about the lovely Rome. I went there for five days at the end of last June & I fell in love with the place. There is so much to see and do whilst you are there day & night, it is a great place. This really is a great European city to visit. I stayed in a hotel which was a 10 - 15 minute walk from the Termini (Rome's biggest rail station). I cannot remember for the life of me the name of my hotel but it was not that grand and I wouldn't stay there again. --- The Termini --- This is a really huge building it is really long and quite wide. The train station has ... Read the complete review

I went there with my girlfriend October last year and I have to say went along with no expectations and absolutely fell in love with the place. first thing to say is the 'eternal city' must be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. what surprises you is its relatively small size. this is a huge bonus as you can pretty much walk anywhere. this is the best way to explore as Rome's cobbled streets and full of character, with the stunning architecture there's something to discover on every corner. the public transport system is very simple and very easy to use you can buy a ticket on a bus of a shop or the station and then you stamp it at the metro or on the bus ...
