Located inside the Apostolic Chapel, within the residence of the Pope, Michelangelo’s ceiling fresco in the Sistine Chapel is a sight to see. Also, spend time studying The Last Judgement on the altar wall.
The big attractions charge you an entrance fee. Colosseum tickets start at 10€ to tour the inside. You can plan on seeing a lot of the ruins and churches from the outside for free, and you will find delicious Italian food for reasonable prices. One very cool free activity: the Casa del Cinema at Villa Borghese. The city of Rome subsidizes the outdoor film screenings here. Buy some wine and pizza, sit on the grass, and take in a free movie.
Via Condotti, Via Borgognona and Via Frattina are three streets start near the Piazza di Spagna that run parallel until they reach the Via del Corso (also known as “The Corso”). They are the best known highly expensive fashion in Rome.
Rome is in southern Italy, so winter weather is mild. One tip: keep major Catholic holidays in mind. It may mean things are closed; more likely, it will mean huge crowds. Whether or not you want to see Easter at the Vatican, it will help your hotel (or flight) plans if you know in advance.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Roman Forum tour with TOM was incredible.
We went on the Coliseum and Roman Forum tour. The Roman Forum tour was led by Tom. Overall I think it was possibly the best tour I have ever been on. Tom went through the history of Rome and its emperors and tied it into the different parts of the Roman Forum as we walked through. He was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. His final “soliloquy” on the Forum was delivered so well and was so moving I was about to cry. He was THAT good. He was also very considerate of the heat, and always tried to find shade and made sure people had opportunities to get water. Five stars for sure.
Rome: Guided Skip-the-Line Colosseum Tour reviewed by Amber
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fabulous tour with a great guide. Doing one tour? Do this
Excellent tour to a part of the city I could have missed in a short visit. Knowledgable local guide (which is important) who took us to shops we might have found difficult with limited language skills. We learned about the area and it’s history and enjoyed the chance to visit small craft shops. Make sure you are hungry when you do this tour. The food is very filling!

Amalfi Coast: Limoncello Tasting & Scenic Cruise reviewed by Debbie
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Good tour. Viviana our guide was very knowledgeable.
Good tours you skip all the lines. In the museum and chapel is busy but tbatvis to be expected. Our guide Viviana was great. The worst thing about the tour was the other people in our group. Constantly complaining about how long it was and some were rude. It clearly states the tour goes for 3 hours. But it’s was a good tour. It should not be missed
