It's an economic b&b very close to Termini station. Reccomend for people who need to move without a car. The hotel is inside a big, old palace with an iron gate. You have to follow the indications for the hall. The rooms are on different floors and also in different parts of the structure. So after the chek in you ...

    Beautiful church with high, ornate ceilings and countless altars. It's elaborate and grand and makes you feel small without making you feel insignificant. It's a little known fact that the tomb of Gianlorenzo Bernini rests here; blink and you could miss the step indicating its location. It's also said that there are remnants of Jesus' baby crib kept here, though ...

    Capuchin Crypt

    Recommended to me by fellow Gogoboters, this is an insanely beautiful yet haunting crypt with the bones of hundreds of Capuchin monks. They have a taste for the macabre, but it's one of the most remarkable tributes to the pedigree of the order.

    Definitely go at night when it is just eerily beautiful to behold. Roman grandeur writ very large. And it's a lot of fun too, especially navigating the crowds and climbing the steps.

    Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

    The chains of St. Peter are indeed on display at the Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli, though, unlike modern magic acts, one can't actually touch them to see if they're real. (I suppose that's a matter of faith.) The church is beautiful, as are many churches in Rome, but the vincoli and a statue of Moses by Michelangelo are ...

    It's a great place to spot tourists, that Piazza Barberini. Located in an island in the middle of the street, it's located right above the Barberini Metro stop. The Fontana del Tritone e Fontana delle Api sits in its center, visible from all around. While it may be overshadowed as an attraction by the nearby Fontana di Trevi, it's still ...

    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.

    Great museum to spend an afternoon in- it's not nearly as crowded as many of the other sites, which allows for a lot less stress. I saw the National Geographic 125th Anniversary exhibition here and absolutely loved it. There are always rotating exhibitions, when I was there they had 2 running. Also they accept student cards for a discount!

    Founded in 1889 the museum holds most of the antiquities found in Rome since 1870 as well as existing collections of classical arts. The exhibits displayed in the Palazzo Massimo near the central Termini are originals dating from the 2nd century BC to the end of the 4th century AD. On the 2nd floor particularly are decorations from public buildings ...

    On four corners of a traffic-choked intersection sit these four fountains, representing two rivers (the Tiber and Arno) and two goddesses (Diana and Juno) preside peacefully, adding a Renaissance flair to what would otherwise be a routine commute. We think this typifies the 'local' experience in Rome; daily mundane activities against a backdrop of truly incredible art.

    The Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs, is a lovely church in regular use by the locals, located on the Piazza della Republica, just a short distance from Termini station. We spent over an hour here just listening to the choir practice.

    Santa Pudenziana is probably the oldest Christian church in Rome. It doesn’t look interesting at all from the outside, and inside it’s pretty plain, but the main attraction here are the 4th century mosaics (they have been restored). The mosaics (considered to be the oldest in Rome) are very impressive and colorful, they depict some religious scene. It’s worth a ...

    By far my favorite bar thusfar in Rome. The bartender, Ricardo, was extremely friendly. The space is totally cool and the cocktails are relatively cheap. Five euros gets you a full menu of drinks, and there are also choices ranging from quality beers to a modest aperitivo option. Library books line the wall within the two rooms upstairs. Downstairs, you'll ...

    I was guided to Casa Clementina by a local ex-pat who really liked the place. This is fortunate, as I'd probably never discover it myself. The door is unmarked, and you can distinguish it only from the number 9 and a doorman out front. Cocktails are quite pricey (over 10 euros a pop), but a closer inspection of the ingredients ...
