In a city as overwhelming with art as Rome, it's impossible to find everything on your own. Sometimes you need a little extra guidance to fully appreciate its attractions. And again, that can be overwhelming-- from the academic to the very kitsch, Rome is teeming with tours for every flavor who promote tours with the top and best sites to see. And as the saying goes, "when in Rome.... " you may want to try old, faithful tours of the Vatican or Ancient City , but you might as well take a helicopter tour over the ancient city, or get your jogging groove on in and around the historic center. Or else enjoy the melodrama mixed with Bernini in Angels & Demons. For the best overall view of Rome and its sites, take the ever faithful Red Hop on/off bus. Probably best pocket change (and then some) you'll ever spend. Tips for making the best of your tours in Rome: If taking private tours, organize them well in advance and try to speak to the tour manager. Avoid the tour buskers at airports, piazzas and in front of the Colosseum as they may be focusing on quantity while what you want is quality. Don't be afraid to ask for help, and walk around with a book.
