    I'd greatly appreciate some recommendations on where to eat, shop and what to see?

    What are the best stores for classic/street menswear in Rome? What are the best sights to see and restaurants to visit?

    Thanks in advance!

    You forgot the Pantheon!!:cry:

    Piazza di Popolo
    Piazza Navona
    Circus Maximus
    Vittorio Emmanuele's "Wedding Cake"
    The Jewish Ghetto
    Trastevere
    The Borghese Gradens
    Too many churches to list...

    I really love the Ara Pacis (Augustus' Altar of Peace - right across from his mausoleum)

    We went to a photography show at the new Maxxi Museum - well worth a look..

    If a person has a day to spend in Rome, I'd suggest using a good portion of it to visit the Pantheon. The rest could be used getting lost in Trastevere.

    In terms of shops, I am familiar with very excellent cigar shops, but as far as clothing goes, my only strong recommendation would be Blue Marlin and Co., but that's just me. Have been to Rome a half dozen times in the last 4 years, so if you need any specifics, PM me and I will try to help.
