Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"For the Colosseum and Vatican City, I booked a private tour."  See More

"  In Rome, around the Piazza Navona &Pantheon it is quiet after 2300 and you are conveniently located to Trevi Fountain, Vatican City and not far from the Colosseum &Roman Forum."  See More

"For museums I'd want to book reservations at the Borghese Gallery and Museum (in advance online) one of the world's greatest museums."  See More

"I think that Trastevere is a nice neighborhood but I lived in Testaccio for 5 years and I can say that is really nice, because there are shops, markets and restaurants filled with locals."  See More

"For cheap profits, try the Despar supermarket by Campo de' Fiori, or the Punto at Largo di Torre Argentina."  See More

"Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Piazza San Pietro, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps- all outdoor areas to just wander past and enjoy."  See More

"Basilica Papale San Paolo fuori le Mura is also a bit further outside the main tourist center of Rome, and is worth a visit."  See More

"there are several trains from Rome to Orvieto and from Orvieto to Florence as well."  See More

"You can get there by taking the metro to Piramide (the station by the cool Pyramid of Caius Cestius) and walk the 15 mins to the museum (that way you get to see the pyramid as well)."  See More

"The usual suspects aside (Coloseum, Spanish Steps, Capitoline and Forum, Piazza della Rotonda and Piazza Navona) you may want to also visit the Villa Borghese Gardens (and stunning scupture gallery), the Castel Sant'Angelo(amazing sunset views), the Teatro di Marcello, the Forum Boarium and the nearby Bocca della Verità at Basilica di Santa Maria in Cosmedin and the Giardino Degli Aranci on the Aventine Hill(where you can also find St Peter's keyhole)."  See More

"It is Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri If you don't know it is there, you'd walk right by it, just a simple door in what looks like rock wall."  See More

"Santa Maria in Aracoeli Basilica this is a great church to see, and in the building that is next to the basilica you can go up in a glass elevator into a terrace and see all Rome from there."  See More
