Roma, yes it is very traffic-laden. But the Colosseum, Palatino, Via del Corso, Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain are worth it! I hit Rome during the big Saldi and I bought tons of clothes for very good prices! Trevi Fountain was so beautiful at night. I just sat there and spoke with the locals. I learned a lot of Italian that night. Plus, being serenaded by a charming Italian man is always a plus! Dirt, dirt, dirt, who cares? There is plenty of dirt in every American city as well. After all, they are cities! But Italian dirt is so much more charming, LOL : )
I first visited Roma in 1973 and I had the best time there -- the city was so beautiful with all its history and the people so friendly. Again, I visited in 2003 and it was still wonderful. I visited last year with my daughter because I told her it was the one of the best cities in the world. How disappointed we were, I could have cried. We stayed at an apartment near Termini Station and the proprietor insisted we pay cash even though the internet site said you could pay with a credit card. Unfortunately, because of demand, all ATMs (Bancomats) were out of service. We walked around with the proprietor late into the night, gave up and found one in the morning that worked. We only had three days and didn't want to waste time. First we headed off to St. Peter's but the crowds were horrendous so we gave up on that. The queues for the Vatican went right around the streets and were six people deep. We decided to leave that for another day and get up early in the morning. We queued from…
I lived in Roma for four months with work paying for my plush appartment. Rome is such a lovely place and I liked the people -- what you see is what you get with them. Food and service is great, weather is great. Enjoy your trip there and eat out as much as you can.
I thought Roma was a great place to visit, but lots of walking. But I found a few bars that made up for that at the end of the day. Try and make a trip down to Pompeii -- only two hours away. All I can say is be careful of some of the guys around the termini station, as my friend and I nearly got rolled. If you look about for a night out, you can get good deals on beer -- especially the old town (it's pretty reasonable). I found the Italian very polite -- if you make the effort to speak Italian no matter how basic, you get respect! Enjoy Rome -- the ladies are darlings and fit!
Look at Roma -- 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.
Roma was just amazing. It was on my list of must-see cities, and it fulfilled every expectation. The usual tourist haunts should be visited and won't disappoint -- Trevi Fountain, Colosseo, and Vatican City. For something a little more off the crowded track, try Appia Antica, the ancient acquaduct, and the catacombs. We took the "Archeo-bus" out there and loved it. It ended up being our favorite day. Maybe we got lucky, but everything we ate was awesome! The food was so good. Just try to find something a little off the tourist track and you won't be disappointed. The pizza was outstanding and so cheap. Picnics were great too -- just find a deli and order some meat and cheese. Overall, everyone should visit Rome -- you won't regret seeing the "Eternal City."
