Rome experiences, Italy

Rome is a wonderful place. There is probably no place on the planet where old history is so intertwined with the modern world. Rome not only offers history, but also great night life, awesome food, and beautiful weather. If you have some time while in Rome, make sure you also visit Ostia (the beach) as well as Ostia Antica (The ancient port of Rome).
While Rome offers fantastic sights for tourists, it's as much of a pain for the people who live there. Imagine doing the urban planning in a city where anywhere you dig, you hit some ancient ruins. Long story made short, public transportation is a catastrophe. There are almost no parking structures, so don't bother bringing your car and there are barely any subway stations for the reason mentioned above. Be prepared to use buses or cabs while in Rome.
