    Question Tips for a Roman Holiday?

    Hi,
    Its been quite a few years since I was last been to Rome.
    I'm going over in Oct/Nov, and I would appreciate any tips as to:-

    (1) Great but economical places to dine (like pizza, pasta, gelato, coffee, cakes & any local cuisine)

    (2) general travel tips (i know all about the pickpockets n gypsies already).

    (3) Must-see places, great photo opp locations, timing etc. (apart from the usual tourist attractions)

    (4) Any photo shops worth visiting (nikon user).

    I've done some homework like reading over guidebooks and such but I feel nothing beats local knowledge. Hence this thread to ask for some tips.

    Thank you all very much.

    Bafetto's Pizza. Near piazza navona I think. Locals go there to eat. Really very good after a whole day of walking. Try the one that comes with an egg in the middle.. yummmmmmmm

    The owner love to welcome foreigners. His daughter in law is Chinese I think. Nice homely service.

    As for photos, the Forum and Vatican at sunrise/sunset will be nice for sure..
