I stayed at Village Flaminio, the pitches were quite small and in some instances, trees shared the same space. The toilet facilities were ok, but the piped in classical music almost provided an air of culture, well I was in Rome. The campsite is close to the train station and a supermarket is also close by.
The campsite did provide a tourist information point, where great advice was provided. I bought the Roma Pass here and the Vatican pass. The Roma Pass cost €36 that provided 3 days of unlimited access to public transport, free admission to 2 of the listed museums / archaeological sites, and a reduced rate at some and free admission to others. It is worth using the free admission to the most expensive attractions and paying the reduce rate on the less expensive ones. The Vatican Pass cost €29, which provides fast track entry to the Vatican museums. On the day I arrived, there were no queues and in fact I queued longer to get in as the Vatican Pass was only redeemable at one kiosk, so I queued twice. The usual entry price is €16.
There is so much to see in Rome that I could not possibly cover it all here, so instead, I will leave you with the highlights of my time in Rome and hopefully you will be inspired to visit this wonderful city.

The Alphonse Mucha exhibition was recommend to me, I don’t normally go in for this type of art, but it was different and it did help pass an hour or so. Alphonse Mucha is best known for his advertisements, postcards, and illustrations.
