A hop on- hop off bus is the best way to have a general view of the centro storico. Try the roof top if not a cold day

the best way to visit Rome is by walk. This city is a open-air museum. It is so nice to walk around and look all building , the famous square ( Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Navona, Piazza della repubblica etc.) It is something unique wto walk arounf the Foro Romano. It is like to go back 2.000 years

It's such a lovely place to have a stroll around, you just need to walk up and down the side streets to see such beautiful architecture and the cobbled streets. It's different by night so go again! Wear sensible shoes though as we ended up walking about 10 miles but was such a joy. Grab a drink in a cafe/bar... More

The historical centre of Rome is unique in the world. It is at one time relaxing, enriching, but at the same time need energy and time to cover the vast area. One gets an impression of coming out a school after visiting the Centro storico.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
