Rome was one of the most beautiful and interesting cities I have ever seen, but also one of the sketchiest. My friend got her wallet and one hundred-fifty Euros stolen on the Metro on the way to the Vatican Museum, so watch out! Also, beware of the Termini train station late at night and early in the morning. Lots of creepy drunk guys tend to hang out around there.
Sermoneta is more beautiful than any town in Tuscany, yet has only a few tourists. It cannot stay that way for long.
My wife and I visited Sperlonga in June 2005, while staying at nearby Terracina. We considered our own little town enchanting, but soon conceded that Sperlonga was even more outrageously beautiful. We've seen much of Italy -- Sestriere, Rome, Pompeii, Trieste, Naples, Turin. All of them surprised us in their way, but nothing prepared me for the stunning magnificence of Sperlonga.
Rome is cool, don't stay too long because you might get abducted by the vatican gaurds who dislike you because you clothes are not appropriate, but they are wearing something you would see at disneyland. Go here to party in pubs and peep the ruins. Watch out for the drunk dude at the pantheon with his box wine.
Look at Rome -- dirty, expensive, and crowded. It is the eternal city and there is so much to see and explore. And that is what every owner of a hostel, hotel, restaurant and every other business serving tourists knows. Convenient it is that most hostels and hotels are situated close to the Termini train station. It must be the cheapest area in Rome, because it is one of the most smelly, dirty, and -- for tourists, carrying their cameras and wallets -- unsafe areas. Plus, coming out of Termini, walking your first meters in the city, you will see homeless sleeping, be asked for money and cigarettes. The prices in Rome -- well, it is Rome after all, so every tourist is paying for it, but do yourself a big favor when you stay at a some hotel or hostel. Ask around what rate other guests pay, because you will be judged by your wallet and look by receptionists at many places at a difference of up to 60 €uro for a single room. Some tourists just pay everything.
This city is amazing. Theres so much to see, I could have happily stayed there for months. Make sure you're wearing trousers and shoes however when you visit St Peters, guards in FBI disguise snatch you fRom the crowd and send you away in the typical Italian way. I find the Italians extremely rude and unwelcoming; however they didnt spoil my time in Rome. I guess I would be like them if my city was invaded all year round by the hoards of amazed tourists. Strangley enough I also found Rome to be the worst place I've ever been to for pizza, or indeed anyfood. The prices were sky high, the service was rude and even mean and the food was awful. I obviously had a bad time of it when looking for food but I would suggest Rome is not the place for good food.
