When thing I need to tell you is not to believe everything you read. It is recommended (in case you speak Spanish and no Italian) to speak to Italians in Spanish and not in English, and yes Spanish is similar to Italian but everybody at shops speaks English and threes no need of making weird signals. Of course that if you only speak Spanish you´ll be fine but if you need further explanations you will understand better in English. You can also learn some words in Italian as they are really simple, i.g. ice-cream is gelato (you all know this one), one is uno, two is due, still water is acqua naturale, tomato is pomodoro, goodmorning is bongiourno, hello/ goodbye is ciao and thank you is gratzie. Just some simple words I leanrt by reading those travellers book.
You also need to know that you can go evrywhere on foot as all monuments are surrounding the main street. No need of taxis or public transport, just you and your feet.
As Rome is the capital of Italy we decided to stay here and meanwhilo do some exursions to otheres citys. Just to clarify I stayed in Rome a couple of days at the beginging of the trip and also the last week where I got a especial visit,and in the middle I did move to another place you´ll find more about sooner.
Next you have some of the must see atracctions:
You can buy the ticket online or inside the place and it costs 12 euros and if you are a happy citizen from the EU under 18 you get it for free! The ticket is valid for two days and includes the Coliseum, the Palatino and the Imperial Forums. I must admit that the Colliseum is the only place that is true to what people tell you about. It´s huge and under reconstruction... but you can still apreciate all of it. Remember you can visit two floors of it and if you are fan of ancient history you can also hire a tour guide... not my case. After you go to the coliseum I went to the other places included on the ticket and be careful with the shoes you are wearing because the ground is covered with little rocks that might get in your sole... (ofcourse that was my situation). I went here with my friend and we had no idea of where were we standing on so we just went with the flow and fell in love with some plants and vegetation in genereal is you don´t see much green in this city.
This was the first place I went to as I litterally came across it on the first day. Even thogh the Forums are included in the coliseum ticket you don´t need to anything to see them. I recomend you to go on the same day as when you go into point 1 as this places are litterally one beside the other and you need to go through the Forums to reach the coliseum.
3_ Fontana di Trevi
It was under reconstruction!!!!!!!!!! So sad! But I could still through a coin and I went back two weeks later! haha
5_Vittoriano and Piazza Venezia
The vitoriano is such a nice monument that you must see and it gives you a nice view of the Piazza Venezia and via del Corso (the main street that goes from this place to point 7)
I´m not sure if this place is a must see point of interest, but if you ask me, it was the quietest place in Rome. When you are there a magical feeling of relaxation appears. MUST SEE!
