History around every corner

The really cool aspect of Rome is that every corner you turn you bump into a piece of history older than the USA itself... be several centuries. The aqueducts still remain and cut through the city like veins invariably leading you to some awesome historic treasures. The wine is still cheap and the pizza comes by the kilo, not the slice. The best advice is to ditch the map and get yourself lost in the backstreets and happen upon some lesser known churches, archaeological sites, and pizza joints with cheap wine and good eats. It is next to impossible to have a bad time in this city, avoid learning something new in each mile you walk, or find yourself with a bad plate of food... and that is really what makes this city so great.
