Visiting the Italian capital, Rome? Here is a list of 10 things you'll need to know. Rome is considered one of the most historic places in the world. On every possible corner is a momument, relic, artifact, archaeological site and memorabilia of the times long since gone. It is rich in history and carries with it a tale of a city that was once an empire. Getting around to all the sights couldn't be easier with the Roman metro.
There is so much to do inside and outside the tourist sites that you'll likely find yourself coming back to see what you couldn't the first time around. The most well preserved structure is the Pantheon, opened in 126AD.
There are seven ancient hills in Rome, but you can find the best view from Gianicolo (or Janiculum). Visit the Vatican City, an independant state within the city (but dress appropriately). Don't miss the Roman Colosseum, St Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museum, the Spanish Steps and the Roman Forum. Also, be sure to check out sights outside of the tourist spots. There are several restaurants where you can find tradtional Italian food, shopping choices are abundant and the nightlife is unmissable. Rome is just as beautiful at night as it is during the day.
Shopping, indulging in history, exploring, eating, partaking in social events, there's something for everyone.
