3 Days in Rome


Only have a long weekend to visit Rome? Now that can be a daunting prospect! Rome is an extraordinary capital and it can take weeks or months to see all the sites and experience the cuisine and culture. Travelling can often be stressful when visiting a place that has so much to offer because you just don't know where to start. Check out our list below which pinpoints the absolute best places to visit if time is truly of the essence.

Day 1 - Vatican, St. Peter’s, Trastevere

To get the most out of your day, start early! You want to arrive at the Vatican in the morning to beat the crowds. Be sure to dress appropriately in reverence of the religious city-state. Take an early walk and explore the global city streets. You can sit on the gorgeous Spanish Steps and take in the ethos and people watch before beginning your adventure. Next, head over to the Vatican museums. There are over 54 Christian and art galleries within the city and the collections are stunning. Be sure to visit the Sistine Chapel which holds the striking ceiling art done by legendary artist, Michelangelo. Once you’ve gotten your fill of art, stop by Via delle Grazzie and grab some lunch. To top off your day, have some fun at the beautiful neighborhood Trastevere. If possible, check out award winning La Gatta Buia, they have an unbelievable Fiori di Zuca!

Day 2 - Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum

The best way to begin your second day is to hop aboard the Metropolitana (subway) and take a ride to the Colosseau station. Once you’ve arrived, stop by the ticket counter and purchase your one ticket that will grant access to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum (If possible, avoid first Sundays)! Visit the Colosseum first (and perhaps bellow "Are you not entertained?!" over the ruins) Be sure to do some research on this ancient wonder beforehand so that you understand what you’re exploring. There are many spigots throughout the area with fresh water, grab a bottle before leaving. Now, it’s time to hike up the Palatine Hill! It may be wise to get a private tour if possible. The views from the hill towers are stunning and overlook the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. On your way back, keep left to arrive at the Forum to take in even more majestic views. Grab some dinner and get some rest for your final day!

Day 3 – Pantheon, Largo di Torre Argentina, Piazza Navona

Begin your last day with an espresso and head over to the Trevi fountain. Keep with tradition and toss in a coin for good luck! Next, head over to the Pantheon church. While there, be sure to be respectful and keep your voice low. After a good lunch, stroll over to Largo di Torre Argentina, which is also known as a cat sanctuary. The cats are well take care of by a local charity and feeding them is prohibited. Lastly, we have Piazza Navona to explore. This elegant showcase Square in Rome is built on the Stadium of Domitian. If possible, visit at sunset as the sight of the Square is awe-inspiring.

Now that you’ve accomplished an impressive three-day tour enjoy a great glass of wine and rest up before heading home from this wonderous city.
