    Rome, the Eternal City, and epicenter of the Roman Empire which lasted almost a thousand years, is one of the most interesting places that I have ever visited. I've been there twice, and loved each and every minute of it.

    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.

    Each "corner" a lesson in history .....
    It's like living a constant journey in time ...... One of the cities that "breathe" story all the time ....

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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 company

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    One of the world'd great cities. Much better off the tourist circuit than on. Battle the hoards to see the sights and them do your best to avoid them and enjoy.

    At night, the Colosseo lights up and awes the passersby from the outside. It mus've been amazing to witness it's magnificence before it was stripped of its golden walls.

    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.

    We were amazed at everything we experienced. It has been one year since we visited Rome. I would return in a heartbeat

Description

Rome, the Italian capital, holds much more in store for vacationers than just the ruins of a long forgotten empire; it is a modern, cosmopolitan city that is the center of all things Italian. Some of the remarkable attractions Rome has to offer include the Roman Colosseum, which still stands as a monument to the greatness of the ancient Roman Empire, and the Vatican, home to the Pope and the Catholic Church, as well as one of the world’s largest collections of art – capped by Michelangelo’s spectacular Sistine Chapel. No visit to Rome is complete without indulging in one of the Roman’s favorite things to do: eating a plate of prosciutto and melon from one of the many outstanding restaurants in any one of Rome’s beautiful piazzas. For dessert, sniff out some good gelato and relax on the Spanish Steps or head to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin in for good luck. Rome’s hotel scene is a lot like other European cities with a wide variety of hotels and hostels, just be sure to book in advance because rooms tend to fill up quickly, especially in summer months. When in Rome, be sure to take a minute to do as the Romans do: relax, talk, and enjoy life.
