We stayed in a B&B easy walking distance of 'the top tourist sights' (assuming you are fit and able) Felt like the 'real' Rome Lots of very affordable bars and restaurants. Coliseum and Roman Forum really created a step back in time feeling.The guided tour around the Roman Forum was very informative and very well led. St Peters Basillica Castel Sant Angelo isn't often on the main to do list but it's worth it for the views back across the city . Would recommed two nice restaurants both located in Trastevere and recommended by our host - Taverna de Mercanti - great open grill chicken or lamb / wood burning pizza oven. Very rustic old taverna building. Just off Via di San Michele. Also Ristorante le Mani in Pasta - Via dei Genovesi, 37. Just fantastic food and superb atmosphere. Small doorway easily missed. You would not notice it if you were not looking for it.
