Continuity 

At the awards show performance, in the close shots of the audience, the audience members are clearly sitting in rows of benches that rise as they go further back. In the larger shots of a massive audience there are no benches, just a "sea" of fans.

Factual errors 

The award show at the end of the movie takes place in the Roman Coliseum. The Coliseum has only 1/7 of its floor covered by a sand-covered wooden deck and there is seating for only about 700 people. Also the Coliseum is only 35% accessible and people have not been allowed at the top of it in 1500 years. So there could not be such a massive stage and audience in the Coliseum.

Plot holes 

A couple of the characters in Rome state that the graduation fiasco was on CNN and other news networks. If Lizzie was on the news in Rome, wouldn't people recognize her and know she's not Isabella?

When Paolo and Lizzie go to Franca's place to choose a dress, Lizzie tries on a dress that has a magazine cover for a hat. The magazine is the edition that Gordo has just seen the two girls reading with Lizzie on the cover. But when he shows Lizzie the magazine when she gets back to the hotel, she looks astounded that she is on the front cover of a magazine, but wouldn't she have already seen it (when she was at Franca's) before Gordo shows it to her?
