    The Colleseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

    The one ticket gives you access to all three of these archeological treasures and its worth devoting a day to explore them properly. Awe inspiring.

    St. Peter's Basilica

    We couldn't miss this one. The Vatican, St Peter's square and fountain, wandering round them is an interesting experience of chills and awe. I really can't describe it other than it's a mistake to not visit for at least an hour.

    Ecstasy of Saint Teresa

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning. There is so much detail in everything - carvings, banisters, staircases... The sculpture of Saint Teresa doesn't look like it could be made of hard marble, her clothes look soft and fluid. The church itself is a masterpiece, don't just rush through here.

    Baths of Caracalla

    We spend most of a day wandering round here, and it was unreal seeing everything quite well preserved. It's easy to pretend to travel back in time and imagine how it would have been as an ancient Roman. It's even more astounding that these buildings are older (so much older) than our own country (New Zealand) - it really puts things in perspective. Don't forget a snack and some water as there is nowhere nearby to buy them.

    Life

    Ia perfect location not far from the Spanish Steps, Life specialise in a quirky modern take on traditional Italian dishes, with an emphasis on luxurious ingredients such as black truffles and fresh lobster.

    La Porta Del Principe

    This place is so beautiful and romantic. Coming from a guy, I know, but it was juts fantastic sitting outside in the garden with the restaurant in the background, softly lit and ivy crawling up the walls. The staff were very nice and made us feel special even though there were many other couples and groups eating that night.

    La Prosciutteria

    It was very busy when we arrived, but we were lucky and got a table pretty quickly. It was a perfect way to end the day, having a meat and cheese platter and a couple of glasses of wine. It's not a fine dining experience but the rustic kind of atmosphere makes it better.

    Mark

    Fine dining right near the Vatican with friendly staff and a crisp minimalist decor. Fresh seafood-based dishes are their specialty.

    Likeat Restaurant

    This is a cool little place with awesome, friendly staff. Don't go past the sandwiches, and people around us were also raving about the porchetta. We stopped here after our trip to the Vatican, then bought some take-away sandwiches for the rest of the day.

    Book in advance

    Because there are so many tourists in Rome, it's a good idea to book tickets in advance if you don't want to spend hours waiting in line to see the most popular attractions. Sometimes advanced bookings earn discounts too!
