Take a rough guide book....don't know how long you have but besides the normal touristy stuff (colloseum, Vatican City etc) id suggest the nicest way to enjoy Rome, weather permitting, is a wander around the old town, lots of little streets and interesting shops....and the food is amazing of course right up from the street vendors selling pizza by the slice to the restaurants selling real Tuscan cuisine....it's worth using a guide book to find the best ice cream parlours as well.....nothing beats Italian Ice Cream...!

Went here with the better half,

Well worth the view

dont be fooled into buying the quick passes into the collesium etc the wait isnt very long and we went peak season. also if you want to go to the churches Vatican etc you cant get in wearing short clothing. women have to cover their legs. food is great you'll have an awesome trip.

Its a bit more expensive but if you can try and go for the underground tour at the colosseum.Also well worth vising the Villa d'este tivoli http://yeshotel.sr1.delphinet.it/files/2013/02/5064611289_1825635b44_z.jpg

It all depends what you are into definitely try and visit Hadrians Villa also Museum and Crypt of Capuchins

Also like most major cities these days just be aware of your groups safety dont have wallets or purses in visible places ie back pockets etc be very aware using public transport especially getting on or off.The block and or squeeze is a well known manoeuvre.Also this happened last time i was there young women will use babies as shields whilst they try and pickpocket you.The guide i was with told them to go away.As long as your aware you will have an amazing time even just walking around the streets at night is a pleasure.

Trastevere cobbled streets in town centre.

Pantheon inside.

If you buy any souvenirs from street sellers barter them down to low prices as they start really high. Buy metro passes as they are good value. Don't let anyone assist you at the ticket machines, they will rob you or expect you to pay them.

Great place to visit with loads of history

Hi....I can't remember which area I'm thinking of....it was a long while back but accross the river from the tourist area I think - a guidebook would help you on that one. Rome is the capital so you can obviously get food from any of the regions - Tuscany though is one of the most famous regions to the North of Rome
