Going to Rome on the 19th • Page 2
Pageof 2 First / Last
Holidays booked for Rome at the end of August / start of September! Other than the obvious tourist attractions any recommendations for what to see, where to go, best places to eat, etc?
We're staying fairly near Termini, so should be able to get about fairly easily.

Watch out for those pricey ice-creams.

The ... bottom left of the map, over the Tiber island is the old servant district (Trastevere) - the restaurants around the piazza Di Santa Maria are the best we found. Touristy still but not obnoxiously touristy, and good prices.
Dead on the other side of the centre from Termini but worth it.
LB, you really are a massive geek.
Almost tempted to go looking for one of those €32 ice-cream cones. Surely at that price they must be delicious...
We'd also be interested in seeing any of the more unusual things Rome has to offer. We went to Prague a few years ago and loved the place but one of the stand out memories was our trip to the sex toy museum

Can't really recommend anything other than the usual touristy stuff (Vatican City, Colosseum, Pantheon), although I do remember there being an odd wooden toy shop somewhere in the centre, if you want to see something a little different. Also, Villa Borghese gardens are definitely worth visiting.
Just walking around is enjoyable in itself, it's a great city with something interesting around every corner. Enjoy!
