    We looked at this gem from our hotel window, which made our city trip to Roma just that much more immersive. It might not look like much from far away or on Google Earth, but when you see the brick st...  more »

    Sorry to see certain works, that the world envies us, in complete disrepair. Hurry up and see it as long as it remains standing.

    This is one of the last remaining aqueducts in the world. There is a local park and there are no tourists just locals. Very enjoyable and do not understand why more people are not there. Take a bus an...  more »

  • An odd place Nice ruins. Good tram stop. Litter al over - Including a pile of shoes
  • Great underground cathedral i.e. Ipogeo (visit on request)
  • The only Temple Pythagorean still standing although strong abyss in its decoration in stucco, miraculously discovered in 1913 some meters under the ground, under a railroad arriving at Termini. Unfortunately I was only able to visit it so the opening times are few: a few half days per month, with pre-registration required, by telephone only. If the language is difficult, so forget it! Too bad. Yet this temple is a must (read the book by Jerome Carcopino "Pythagorean major door Basilica" published in 1943. I am attaching 1 photo in the book.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
