whats the best way to spend the first afternoon/evening in rome? i will be there for 5 days so theres no need to go to museums and such. i'd just like a sort of intro or nice preview of rome.

Julietta, Depending on where you are staying I would just explore the neighborhood near your hotel. Find the nearest underground station so the next day you are familiar with where to go. If your hotel is near one of many sites such as the spanish steps or Trevi fountain. check it out... Relax in a cafe and breathe in the Rome you happen upon. Your host or hotel staff will help you too. You will be tired after the flight from Canada so keep it mellow. Hope that helps. Kristen

If I were you, I'd just take a nice gentle stroll along the riverbanks with a gorgeous gelato icecream (cocco is my favourite flavour!!)...where are you staying? I had the most lovely apartment when I went a couple of years ago, I could dig up the website link if you wanted?
