Next up - ROME!
I am off to Rome for a day or two next week. I have never been to Italy so I'm really looking forward to it, started reading up on what to do and where to go today.
What are your top tips? What should I not miss, and are there any special photo tricks I should know?

The Crypt of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini. Wild place - you can't take it's worth seeing. More here. We also did a tour of the catacombs which was fascinating, though with only a couple of days it might not be ideal since it really needs about half a day.

Anything a bit less morbid?

Sounds like my kind of place.

I loved Rome. You can see my pictures from my trip here: Rome - a set on Flickr
I'd recommend you keep your valuables close too. No matter where you go!
You'll love it, loads of photo opportunities just walking around the streets.

Take an espresso in the Piazza Navona, so you can watch the passers-by, but don't eat there. Go to La Fiametta, great food, good prices.
And keep your camera on hyperfocal, Rome is even better than Paris for street :-)

Well, Rome is pretty amazing.

I guess you'll see the Spanish steps, the Colosseum, the cathedral of St.Paul and Vatican... most do, I did. There are many grand spots, it's the eternal city, after all. But there are equally many beautiful little spots, everywhere, and what I liked the best was that you can literary feel the history on it's streets.
You can walk around and touch the marble columns where Ceasars once walked, enter the arena of the gladiators, or enjoy the masterpieces of the Renaissance. The city redefines the meaning of the word "old" - we usually consider the thing of 50 or 70 years in those terms; there they consider the remnants of antique times as old and the buildings from, say, 16th century are still used:-)
