*  Early October is the perfect time to visit Rome.  The tourists are (relatively) sparse, the lines are short, the prices are lower than high season, and the weather is glorious!

*  We bought a Roma pass, which combines museum entrances with public transportation.  This was a cost-effective and simple approach, and I recommend doing this if you want to see a couple of the museums.

* We threw coins in the Trevi fountain - legend holds that this ensures your return to Rome - and Rome is definitely worth returning to!

* If you're interested in a specific place, click on the pictures below.  Otherwise, sit back, get comfy, and thumb through the pages.  There is no way to capture the essence of Rome in photos, but I hope you enjoy seeing it as I did.
