You could walk around Rome for several days just looking at historical sights such as the Forum Romanum, The Colosseum, Pantheon or the Vatican, most of them are very crowded in high season so be prepared for some waiting. We thought we could avoid the crowds going to Fontana di Trevi at night but it is crowded day and night, if going to the Sixteenth Chapel in the Vatican, buy a ticket before you go. There is of course a reason for all these people standing in line everywhere around Rome, most of the sights are a must see so you just have to be prepared for it. But make sure to plan your trip with much time for eating and drinking, food and drinks are not too expensive and it is a very nice place for just going around finding random places for having a coffee or a glass of wine, gelato (ice cream) in Rome is VERY good, you should have at least one every day.
A very popular area for going out to eat is Trastevere, it is well worth a visit but it has a “touristy” feeling with laminated plastic menus and at night the streets get crowded and it starts to look like a Rhodos bar street. PRACTICAL
When to go: All year, spring is nice and summer can be hot, we went in spring.
Getting there: By car, train or air.
Money: Euro.
Other: Bring extra shoes, city weekend means a lot of walking.
