Get on it.

Try to walk as often as possible because on your way to places you'll see streets that are amazing and seem to be bursting with history. Bring a large empty plastic bottle to fill from public water taps. The water is perfectly safe to drink and if you buy it from kioscs you'll get fleeced. I remember that a small bottle of water was more expensive than a large can of Heineken in a kiosc outside the Coloseum.
As for eating, go to Tratoria's rather than Ristorantes which tend to be very expensive. Lots of places do a tourist menu which includes two courses(first one usually spaghetti) and a small garaffe of wine. Usual trick is to see where the locals go. It can save you a fortune.
Have a good trip.
