I just came back from a fabulous week in Rome, and my husband and I are already planning and dreaming of our next trip over there:).
A little advice especially if you are a solo traveler or decide to walk alone around the Spanish Steps, I witnessed when three guys cornered a young man and took his money. It was pretty scary and happened really fast. There were other people walking around but it seemed like no one else noticed. They even pushed him around and grabbed his money. It happened at the top of the steps.
