I enjoyed this look at my favorite city in the world. But skip Bill's advice on one thing. Don't eat gelato on the Spanish Steps. It's against the law to eat anything there now. And you don't want to tangle with the caribinieri. Bill is sure correct on the joys that await you if you get off the beaten path.

Great story. Only been to Rome once and I'll add this advice. Don't go in the summer, if possible, as the heat will dampen your enthusiasm. We'll go in one of sholder seasons next time. I also would offer that dining at night in front of the Pantheon is an amazing experience. Don't remember the food being special but sitting outdoors around 8PM with the lit up Pantheon 50 feet away was breathtaking and guaranteed to transport you back centuries.

i just returned from a 7 day visit to Rome. Going for long, slow walks through narrow streets was my favorite. With each step there is so much to enjoy. Beautiful doors, knockers, sounds, etc.
