    A lovely place to sit on the wall, look over a panoramic view of Rome and take in a sunset, the Pincio is also usually less crowded than the Gianicolo.

    Circus Maximus

    43 reviews

    This is just too cool. Put yourself back into the minds of the ancient Roman games. Great place to picnic or just to enjoy the Roman sun and to contemplate the grandeur of it all.

    Villa d'Este

    Lovely Villa, Beautiful Scenery and Spectacular Gardens. Well worth a day trip from Rome, if you are staying long enough to manage a visit.

    Museo Nazionale Romano

    7 reviews

    Well worth your time. Excellent museum, not as food as the Louvre but still excellent. You see so much art representing history and myths that surround you in visiting Rome. Take at east 1-2 hrs. Area can have gypsies and pick pockets. Use a money belt and don't loiter outside- get on your way to next place.

    Santa Maria in Cosmedin and the Bocca della Verità

    15 reviews

    Add this to my short list of over-hyped things in Rome. The church itself is wholly modest compared to pretty much all other churches you'll be seeing in Rome. There's a neat crypt underneath that adds a bit of spooky history, and it requires one euro for admission. It was quite interesting to see such a modest church, though it ...

    Santa Cecilia

    2 reviews

    Beautiful medieval square in Rome with basilica and Romanesque tower. This is hidden Rome. Especially nice for a stroll if you are staying in the Trastevere.

    Capuchin Crypt

    15 reviews

    This is one of the most off the beaten track and unreal sights. You really feel alive when walking around the 1000's of skeletons of Capuchin monks. Exceptionally the one that states 'what you are now, we used to be. What we are now, you will become."

    Via dei Fori Imperiali

    23 reviews

    Perhaps the biggest difference of all was that there was no four-lane, heavily trafficked road straight through the forum area, dividing the Roman Forum from the other Imperial Fora (Forum of Trajan, Forum of Augustus, Forum of Caesar, Forum of Nerva and Forum of Vespasian). This road was built between 1931-1933 at the behest of Benito Mussolini, leader of Italy's ...

    Moro Fountain

    23 reviews

    Bernini left his mark on this city like none other, and the only reason this beautiful fountain might be overshadowed is because he constructed a much grander one at the heart of Piazza Navona. Silly goose.

    Basilica di San Paolo Fuori le Mura

    19 reviews

    Most travelers don't make it out to Rome's fourth papal basilica, but it's their loss. Consecrated in the 4th century AD, the church is said to be constructed on the burial place of Saint Paul.

    Jewish Ghetto

    17 reviews

    We loved strolling through the Jewish Ghetto while in Rome. Yes, that's what it's officially called, and it's a term embraced by the residents. Ironically, it's becoming a more upscale part of Rome. Some great Kosher Roman restaurants here, some bistros, and the museum in the Temple here is worth a visit.

    Basilica di Santa Maria sopra Minerva

    15 reviews

    Santa Maria Sopra Minerva a Michelangelo statue of Christ holding the cross. You can go right up to the Michelangelo statue and touch it, unlike the Pietà in St. Peter’s which is behind bullet proof glass. Outside the church is a Bernini statue, a small elephant with a small obelisk on its back.

    Porta Portese

    12 reviews

    This is one of those places where you need to handcuff yourself to a friend to avoid getting lost. It may not seem that big at first, but the market winds itself around back alleys and streets until all of a sudden you end up on the other side of the river. They have everything here at this second-hand market ...

    Domus Aurea

    12 reviews

    The Domus Aurea (Golden House) was a large landscaped portico villa. Designed to take advantage of artificially created landscapes, Domus Aurea was built by the Emperor, Nero, in the heart of ancient Rome, after the great fire in 64 AD had cleared away the aristocratic dwellings on the slopes of the Palatine Hill.

    Scala Santa

    10 reviews

    Indulgence granted for climbing the steps on your knees. Difficult but surely rewarding. Recently however some deterioration is happening with the wooden steps which came from Jerusalem so the church is asking for some donation for its rehabilitation.

    Piramide Cestia

    11 reviews

    Rome has a pyramid! Also, it's right outside the Piramide metro stop, which is a pedestrian's gateway into testaccio. It's a cute neighborhood with a few clubs at night.. worth checking out!

    Tiberina Island

    The island itself is very small, it only has a hospital and a church on it. But we had some lovely ice-cream while passing it :)
