Some residents still speak the ancient local language ''romanesco''; nowadays, however, Italian is the more common mother tongue.
'''English''' is widely spoken in Rome by the younger generations and by people working in the tourist industry. Since many people have a limited knowledge of English, it is wise to speak slowly and simply. Among 40+s the chance is a lot less, and with 60+s as good as zero. Romans always try to be helpful with the tourists, giving some basic indications with big meaningful gestures.
'''Romance languages''' other than Italian, especially Spanish, French and Portuguese and French, are also fairly widely understood (better the Spanish, less the Portuguese) due to their similarity to Italian, although not necessarily spoken. The Romanian is not well understood, although is a Latin language.
