The language most widely spoken in the city is Italian, but there are also many people who can speak English well enough to provide basic information and are happy to do so.

One quick tour in Rome

Here are some notes from a native citizen of Rome, about interesting places to explore in one of Italy's finest cities. When you visit these places, imagine that you are on a tour of Rome with one of the locals. Take your rental car to all of these places.

Take a Stroll through the expanse of the Villa Borghese park. This is a large and central green space, similar to Central Park in New York city. Within the park, you will find a first Museum: Galleria Borghese.
