Sightseeing's of Rome includes the Roman Forum, the Arch of Constantine, Circus Maximus, King Victor Emanuel Monument and the outside view of Coliseum. Rome is an ancient city, still left some of the walls.Recommended for:

While I had the privilege of living in Rome for four years and getting to know it really well, I'd recommend it for a vacation anytime. The mix of amazing food and layers of history is truly unique. If you can, give yourself more than the standard 3 day highlights tour and start to explore the secret bits of Rome-catacombs, family-run trattorias, and strolls through the center, preferably late at night.Recommended for:

Honestly Rome was a very busy and crowded city! Its full of old and new beauty! The one thing that disappointed me was that It felt dirty almost, trash and cigarettes everywhere. I mean it is Europe but still! Alot of Rome is streets with trash and ghetto if you are not in the main parts or "touristy" areas. Honestly if you are trying to see true Italy, Rome is not the spot. But for an overall tour of Italy, Rome would be fun for a few days but definitely try Venice or Sicily for an overall stunning Italy!!Recommended for:

An art and history lovers paradise. The city of Rome is endlessly fascinating to visit. The food is outrageously delicious. The citizens of Rome like so many Italians are very friendly. Rome is one of my favourite cities in the world.Recommended for:

Rome is, hands down, my favorite city in the world. If you are an art buff, you may find yourself stumbling upon a Bernini sculpture gracing some little piazza that is not even on your map. If you are a history buff, you have ancient rome through the renaissance. If you love food, the cuisine is out of this world. I could go on and on. Love it!Recommended for:

I liked Rome. It has incredible history and some amazing sights. Its the kind of city that I could easily fall in love with, but for some reason I didn't. That said, there was a lot to do, see and experience. It is definitely a worthwhile trip!Recommended for:

We were in Rome and wanted to visit the birthplance of my wife, very far from the center of Rome. This country is more than about 140 Km south of Rome and not easy find. We also wanted stop by a church located just outside the city. We booked online at Transfers Roma in Limo
We could not be more safisfied with the services of the company. We were picked up at our Hotel, the time , a very friendly, English Speaking, professional driver, in a very confortable Mercedes. He had done his duty, identifying the church no problem, despite extremely challenging mountan road premises. He waited very patiently while we completed our 1 tour of the church.
Then he took us to the center of the country, again with no problems, and has brought us, as required under the agreement that we would re-encounter in three hours time. At the appointed time, we came back and made us go back to our hotel in Rome. Everything was done seamlessly, and this was not easy, personalized excursion we had request. What a joy you have booked with this companyRecommended for:

Quite honestly, there is a large part of my subconscious already planning a move here.
The other part is telling me to finish making my coffee because I'm delusional in the morning.
What can be said about Rome that hasn't already been said or known? The center of one of the greatest empires in all of human history, remnants of the glorious ancients still remain. The new live with the old in this ever-changing landscape of culture—che figata questa cultura!
The grandeur of the city's buildings impressed me right away. Something about the way they're spaced together seemed to tower over a person. People drive with an aggressiveness that would put Californians to shame, where crossing the street at a "yield" crosswalk even made me a bit nervous.
Running over someone is still a crime here right?
Yes, I think it is.Recommended for:

One of the world's great cities. Incredible combination of ancient and modern. Lively neighborhoods, great local cuisine, and something for almost everyone in terms of history, culture and archaeology.Recommended for:

Beautiful city, especially at night! I love the way the city lights reflect in the water in the canals - very typical Italian scene! The city has a lot of history and major sites to see, like St. Peters, the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, and much more! Good food, and people are pretty friendly for the most part!

Rome is more than a city. It's an idea. Rome once ruled as much of the known world as it cared to and it held it's magnificent empire together longer than any other. Today Rome is the Italian Capital, the heart of the Catholic Church and one of the top five historic cities in the world.Recommended for:

Rome has it all! History, culture and beauty. It is truly one of my favorite cities to wander. I never find a shortage of new things to see or experience. The food is divine, the photo ops endless and yes, romance seems to be everywhere. The perfect destination!Recommended for:

There are some people I know who don't like Rome due to the congestion and traffic. I personally loved it. Maybe it is because I went during August when the locals were out of town and hence, there was no traffic. Regardless, I thought the city was lovely and filled with many historic gems, such as the Pantheon and Santa Maria church. It's also small and compact so everything is within walking distance.Recommended for:

Probably the most diverse, complex, interesting, and fulfilling European city for a cultural visit. I would recommend staying as close to the centre as you can afford. This will cut down on the amount of time spent travelling each day, and maximise your sight-seeing time. There are lots of private rentals at quite affordable rates.Recommended for:

Doable in a day if you rush. Always something to see even if you have been before. What is there not to love about Rome! I love the market at Campo Di Fiori and nightlife near Colloseum.Recommended for:

Every time I see other people's photos of Rome, I feel like I missed something. I'd heard, before visiting, that if you see Rome after everything else (in my case, Venice and Florence), it's a bit of a let down. I'd hoped that wouldn't be true, but compared to those two other cities, Rome just didn't knock my socks off, so to speak. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I would like to go back someday, just to experience what I seem to have missed.
