Rome and Venice are world's one of the most fascinating cities.
Arrived in Rome at Leonardo da Vinci Airport on a Rainy November Night, not too cold. immigration is quick and easy.
Took the Airport Train. The Leonardo Express to Termini The main Railway Station. My Hostel was minutes from the Train station. Checked in and off to Explore the City.
When choosing where to stay, location is number one for me, central train stations have several cheap eating places, access to city buses, and trains or buses to the airport.
Tip: Although you can get by with English, Learn some phrases in Italian, it came handy for me when asking for directions, or buying tickets at the subway station.
First Stop the Colosseum, one of the Wonders of the World, took the underground Metro to get to the Colosseum, on the way back, walked till Termini.
One can walk in Rome, I did take buses and cabs also.
