While it is wonderful to visit Saint Peter's and the great basilicas of Rome, ultimately most people prefer to pray in the language of their childhood. For Americans that means an opportunity to worship in English whether they are Catholic or Protestant.
Here is a basic listing of churches both Protestant and Catholic, where you can pray.
