The first thing you should do is lose all sense of time and forward planning. Throw your itinerary out of the window and go on an adventure. Have fun getting lost and discovering something new. Don’t follow the crowd all the time. Go off track and down some old beaten path and you may find a few surprises. If you manage to do this you will enjoy Rome a lot more because this is how the city is.

Take a stroll along the Tevere and go have a good look around the Forum and old market areas. Take your time don’t rush and sample all the ice cream and pizza to your hearts content. Sit down and have a coffee or a glass of limoncello and live the good life for a while. Rome is a city that is meant to be discovered by walking.
