We decided to try our luck with a Bed and Breakfast in Rome city centre. I found a nice place a stones throw from the Vatican. It was a nice 2 bedroom apartment (great for two couples) with a kitchen and bath. We visited the Vatican, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. Of course we visited during the typical tourist season so all of these places were fairly crowded, but I didn't find it any different than a theme park. The Pantheon seemed oddly placed right in the middle of a residential area, but I guess that's to be expected when things grow up around you. Trevi Fountain was amazing. so many features, you can spend an hour just looking at it from different angles.
At the Pizzale di Ponte Milvio we ate at a restaurant called Antica Trattoria Pallotta. The Gnocchi Imperial was fantastic! The gnocchi was very light and fluffy. The only downside was the calamari was overcooked, but it wasn't enough to knock this dish out as the best thing I ate in all of Europe!
1) Tons of history to see, the Sistine Chapel was very eye opening and breath taking view. Unfortunately you couldn't take any of your own pictures. 2) The food really is pretty good and extremely varied 3) With a map of the city you can get around pretty easily with the bus system and the people were very pleasant!
