Favorite thing: If you only have 2 days in Rome, and would like to discover the city on foot, walking around the streets, Piazzas and monuments, here is a suggestion for an itinerary:

From wherever you start, take the Metro to Flaminio and start your walking your from there:
- Piazza del Popolo - Via di Ripetta - Ara Pacis (Augustus' mausoleum) - Piazza Navona - Pantheon - lanes of the old town - Campo de' Fiori - Teatro di Marcello - Piaza del Campidoglio - Forum (Foro Romano) - Colosseum - Via dei Fori imperiali - Trajan's Column & Trajan's market - Piazza Venezia & vittorio Emanuele monument - Via del Corso - Fontana di Trevi - back to Via del Corso - Piazza Colona - Via Condotti - Piazza di Spagna (climb Spanish steps) - Trinita dei Monti - Pincio hill for sunset view of Rome - back to Piazza del Popolo.

Spend the evening in Trastevere.

Second day / morning: Take Metro from wherever you are staying to Termini - walk down Via Cavour to Santa Maria Maggiore - Piazza della Republica - Via delle Quattro Fontane - Palazzo Barberini - Piazza Barberini (Fontana di Tritone) - Santa Maria Vittoria - Trinita dei Monti - take Metro (Spagna station) to Cipro for a Vatican tour, which you should book in advance.
Spend the evening in the old town, in the Campo de'Fiori area.

Enjoy Rome (even if your feet are sore after all this walking)!
