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.

I love walking the streets here. The main streets, the side streets, by day or night. It's all good. To breath in the sights and sounds, all are my favorite moments of visiting Rome.

So beautiful. Will end up being some of your favorite pictures. Can be very crowded. I recommend going in the evening before sunset and walk & see the other nearby sites. Don't forget your gelato as you stroll through the neighborhood. Don't be afraid to stroll some side streets so you can see the locals in their element.

This is the central part of rome, and believe me when I tell you to spend time here, wandering between piazzas and through the small narrow streets. Take time to find a lovely gelateria and enjoy sorbet or gelato, take in sights and smells of the city. Stop and people watch, look up and see the architecture. Seriously enjoy. and... More

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.
