“like a movie set”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

If you are not run down by motorists, it is so picturesque -- just like a movie set! They really take pride in the beauty. Buildings that need scaffolding for work are covered with reproduction images of the building itself. Windows no longer in use are painted back in to match.

“Staying in Rome. Stay in the Centro Storico”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

The central city of Rome is one of the nicest pedestrian friendly places in the world. The area is compact, the major sites are close to each other. The area is safe (except for pickpockets) can be walked at any hour of the day or night and always seems to be alive.

Turn any corner and be surprised, look in any window and see something new, or old. Avoid restaurants with menus that are posted on the street with hawkers trying to drag you in. But the folks that do the work of hawking, when acknowledged, are polite and friendly. Some sights never seem to quiet down, the Trevi Fountain being one of them. All sights that take reservations should be reserved in advance.

Walk, walk, walk. Eat, drink, watch. There is no other place like Rome.

“splendid history”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

marvelous historical buildings and squares (such as piazza Navona, steps of piazza Espana, ...), although a lot of buildings need some renovation, Rome is not that clean, a lot of graffiti, garbage, ...)
