Any tips is more than welcome

Hi, don't forget to visit http://www.palazzodelfreddo.it/english/boot.htm
Via Principe Eugenio, 65
It's near the Terminus station (5 min walk) and the best ice shop in town!
First you make a choice and pay. Then pick up your ice at the ice desk.
Even at 23 hrs in the evening crowded with people.
If you have the money and time: go to Napoli by fast train (2 hrs). Then take the CircumVesuvia train
(same station) to Pompeii and visit the Pompeii site. Very impressing!
Have a nice time.
Endless stuff to do in Rome.
You can go see the pope if your there on a Wednesday - tickets are free, but you have to write to the Vatican to get them in advance. After he gives his mass - (its like a take that concert with nuns) you can go to the Basillica (Amazing!), the catacombs and the sistine chapel. Queues can be brutal though.
Obviously theres the Colloseum - id there before 9am to beat the queues though.
right next to it is the old Roman Forum and Palatine hill - you cant miss these.
a half hour walk away theres the Pantheon, spanish steps and trevolii fountain, but the crowds can spoil these.
Gurts right about Pompey, its really cool and you can climb the Mnt Vesuvious right next to it.
Napolis good for pizza. Think it was invented there or something.
mariasanta: Beside the obvious visit Collesium - Vatican - Roman Forum(next to the Collesium) - Fountain of Trevi(restaurants around there are excellent, also for a stroll) - Spanish Steps( a must and the Expresso cafe directly opposite it where the waiters are in tuxedos), Via Vento and the Villa Borghese - Leave enough time for just strolling through narrow streets and discover one treasure after another..guranteed...
