From there walk down to th ancient city centre, the Roman Forum and after, the Colosseum. If you wish to, you can visit the Vatican Museums (make a reservation in advance) and later walk to St Peter’s Basicilia. Get lost a bit in Trastevere and find yourself a good trattoria. Don’t miss the Fontana di Trevi, the Pantheon and the Jewish Ghetto.
