Rome 3 days
Youth Hostel: Des Artistes
This hostel is clean and close to the train station. Their roof terrace and buffet breakfast is a favourite among the travellers.
This is a value for money hotel five minutes from the metro line and half a block from the city bus line. There are some graffittis that spoil the neighbourhood's ambiance, but don't let that get to you. It is situated in a safe middle class neighbourhood.

Next stop was Rome city of history.Rome looks all ancient.It feels like everything architectural monuments has story to tell.

Accommodation:We stayed at NH Midas little away from downtown.You can go for AirBnB option as well. which will be near by downtown and cheaper.
Places to visit:
Take hop and hop off bus which will cover most of the main spots:
1)Colosseum--Must see and should take guided tour.when you start listening the story you can picture the gladiators fights.It nice but it should be accompanied by guide so you get to know the history well.
2)St. Peter's Basilica
3)Vetican city-Know as a country itself.Holy site.It beautiful and takes almost half day to go around.Guided tour is must as per my experience you get to learn more.sistine chapel is beautiful.It makes you wonder how it must have been done the stories are so beautifully portrayed.
5)Trevi Fountain-It beautiful.make a wish fountain :).When we went it was under maintenance.so one more thing to make a note check if the places you are going to visit are not under maintenance :).
7)Roman Forum-Ancient spot.It takes you back in history with all those remains of ancient site.
Rome also you can see on foot.I think thats the best way to explore this historic city.It really takes you back in time.Grab a map and start exploring maps can help you a lot.
