Some tour operators will show you the city from a local's perspective, without the hype, and after you visited Rome a few times with an official guide in your hands, you will welcome the change. Rome has so much to offer, but to experience its true heart, you'll have to go off the beaten path. These are a few highlights from our last trip, and some tour recommendations based on Stay.com listings.
