If you want to get out of the tourist congested areas, try Trastevere. We loved it. Only caveat is that most residents and employees at cafes don’t speak much English. But I think that makes for a better experience

Hello Roslyn,

Rome is very compact city. All the signs are near - if in good walking condition. I have visited Rome 20 times and gone trough most of the signs every time in one day (just outside) by walking. One tour by day and other in the evening.

If you choose any district beside of the most important signs, you can reach others easily.

One of the best district is Via Veneto and Piazza Barberini. Nice hotels but of course more expensive as in more fare from center. There are some four star nice small hotels which aren't so expensive as the big ones but very charming. Unfortunately don't any more remember names. Just on the Via Veneto on left side going from Piazza Barberini.

Other nice area is between Piazza di Spagna , Spanish steps and Piazza Venezia, There are also the most exclusive shops.

You most probably already know what you MUST see in Rome. I have a special hint what most of the guides don't know. Take a taxi and ask to drive to Santa Sabina on the top of the hill on the est side of the Tiber river a bit north of Pyramid of Caius Cestius. You have to enter to the hill from that side.

On the top is a observation deck (= a small park or parking place) to see the Vatican City and entire city. Nice view but the best is on the left side of that observation deck on the gate of that San Pietro in Vincoli Basilica. You look from the key hole and see the most beautiful sign of St. Peter's Basilica. Ask taxi driver to wait you, because you cant get easily there any other taxi. But you have to go there on dark hours. Then the view is absolutely the best.

I hope you have nice time in Rome, my favorite city in the world.

Juha

I found that most Air bnb's are extremely cheap in Rome. We stayed a block from the Spanish Steps and a 10 minute walk from the Trevi Fountain. We also rented a scooter for cheaper than public transport or cabs.

We really enjoyed staying in Coppedè This area is located between two large parks, Villa Borghese and villa ada, and has some amazing and very unusual architecture - we saw nothing like it anywhere else in Rome. It's also off the well-beaten tourist track, but with easy transport to the centre of Rome. There are frequent buses along Via Tagliamentoand trams from Piazza Buenos Aires.
