Trip To Rome...anyone been?

Hey, I am going to Rome this weekend with my girlfriend.  Seeing I have never been before I thought someone may have some tips on great places to eat, see etc. that are off the beaten track (so to speak).

I also wondered if non Italian speaking people had any problems over there? only language is English!

We are staying near Vatican City.


Thanks in advance.

StyleSheetTheme for Viewing Themes @ Design Time
If like me you use Themes but are always annoyed that they don't show at design time. Well styleSheetTheme is the answer. The styleSheetTheme actually gets applied in very early in the page cycle, even before the page control properties. That way you can still override the styleSheetTheme at page and control level by the Theme property. You can set it a page level like this... <%@ Page Language="C#" StylesheetTheme="Theme1" %> or (if like me) you prefer to set things like this globally you ......
