    Centrally located to some amazing restaurants and shops. The location itself was large than life and really incredible to see in person. It was a little crowded, and the vendors selling junk everywhere was slightly annoying. But otherwise really cool.

    The underground tour was totally amazing and so informative. I am lost for words at the barbarism of a so called advanced society slaughtering people and animals for pleasure. The construction of this building and the history of the architecture is worth the visit.

    Very moving experience because of the sheer size and evacuation activity. Security check point to enter. Easy. Be sure to use a paper map or Guide. Long queue and.
    Much walking.

    Ancient Rome at its best. Interesting to walk around but felt there was something missing. The Forum below is breathtaking from the Hill and the views across Rome superb but on the hill information is scant or non existent

    Piazza Navona is a tourist attraction, like other similar piazzas in Rome. I've been there before, and it was nice to see the fountains again (and read about what they show in a tour book).

    Every turn another beautiful church....often unspectacular from the outside but inside they are full of statues, stained glass, ceilings and rarely disappoint.....and all are free.

    We just visited and hired VIATOR tours to guide us through this magnificent place! Our guide, Francisco was knowledgeable and friendly. However, very close moving... keep that in mind. Also, steps are many and not easy to climb. It's a spiral staircase with lots of stairs - take the elevator if you have any issues.

    We stayed in Trastevere during our recent trip to Rome, and it was nice be in a less-touristy area. The place is full of small supermarkets and other shops -- it is across the river Tiber (Tevere) from Rome. We used cabs to get to Rome, which was inexpensive. The buses would take 20-30 mins to get to, say, Colosseo. The savings on rental costs vs staying in Rome were substantial.

    Brilliant visit during our trip to Rome. Evidence of a wide variety of Rome ages in one place. Great photo opportunities at night and during the day from the outside but take the time to go in.

    There is a bit of walking as you progress through to two different levels of viewing of Rome. There is a cafe on one of those levels. There are different models and history on the castel worth stopping, looking and reading.

    The tour of the Domus Aurea was truly amazing. I booked the tickets on the official coop culture site. The tour was given in English by a wonderful lady archaeologist who worked on the site, it was so inspiring to hear her talk about the excavations and what they had discovered - she was so knowledgable and informative but also so friendly and engaging, we felt very fortunate to have her as our guide.
    The Domus Aurea itself was wondrous and awe inspiring. There are so many wonderful things to see in Rome but this has to be the best in my opinion. The scale and beauty of the project was really brought to life by our guide. The Virtual reality presentation was mind blowing! It was so beautiful you wanted to stay inside this world and never leave! It is a credit to all the people who have worked and continue to work so hard on the restoration. A must see when you are in Rome!

    This is an incredible complex of palaces telling a part of the story of the history of Rome. For a history lover, this is a must-see in Rome. I spent the entire day here with my girlfriend and even she enjoyed it… although a whole day of absorbing art and history left us thoroughly drained! Through a huge, and stunning collection of art and artifacts, the Capitoline museum take you on a journey of how Rome grew and developed. We used the video guide which was occasionally fascinating- using augmented reality to read out a translation of ancient tombstones, or explaining important figures on giant paintings and sculptures… however we mostly used this as an audio guide which I strongly recommend - without the audio guide or video guide, you will miss a lot. Implementation of the augmented reality on the video guide is patchy, and often misses out a lot… for instance, there is only one room that discusses Hannibal, but not much is told of the Punic wars, or the impact it had on Rome. I heartily recommend you make time for this amazing museum. And I strongly recommend you get an audio or video guide (or a tour guide) if you go. The museum is in multiple palaces which are beautiful but hard to navigate. And you MUST book in advance!

    Villa Borghese is the most popular park in Rome and is considered its green lung. The Villa Borghese Gardens are located on the Pincian Hill, close to Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo. #roadforksoffbeat

    The Doria Pamphilj Gallery is more than just an art collection. Located between Via del Corso and Via della Gatta, the main entrance is a wrought iron gate on Via del Corso and you then cross a courtyard in order to gain access to this absolutely astounding attraction. Consisting mainly of a second floor grand interior corridor that runs around a rectangular central courtyard, the corridor with its frescos and elaborately painted and gilded ceilings is breath-taking and awe-inspiring. The art that the rooms contain includes paintings by Caravaggio, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Titian, Raphael, along with sculptures, frescos and tapestries. It’s like viewing fine art inside a building that is a work of art itself. Doria Pamphilj is more than a hidden gem, it really is absolutely stunning.

    Beautiful city center. The one and only Rome. It feels like every building is historic and with great cultural meaning.
