Things to do in Rome
10 things to do in Rome
When someone says “Rome wasn’t built in a day” he means that it takes a long time to do an important job.
Rome is the Eternal City. It was so called because Roman poets like Tibullus and Ovid thought that “no matter what happened to the world, no matter how many other empires might rise and fall, Rome would go on forever”.
Rome is a city filled with history. It is worth visiting and we put together a little guide to highlighting what to see in Rome.
First of all: When in Rome do as the romans do!
Colosseum is Rome’s most famous monument, it was an amphitheatre and when in Rome it is worth seeing. After lots of years it is still fascinating. But we can’t explain it with words, you must see it!
Pantheon is a huge building dedicated to ancient divinities. It is one of the best-preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings. Walking around there, you will appreciate the essence of Rome.
3) Roman Forum
Roman Forum is a rectangular forum (square) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings. Walking down you can see the small area of the Forum that was the epicenter of the massive Roman Empire.
4) Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica
Vatican City is an independent city-state, if you visit Rome you have to plan your visit in Vatican as well. You can choose between Vatican Museum, Castel Sant'Angelo, St. Peter’s Basilica and Road of the Conciliation. Even if you are not Catholic a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica is a “must do”.
5) Trastevere Streets
Trastevere is the district where the whole scene is happening. Maybe it is the heart of Rome and it is an area that everyone should visit ones in a lifetime! Pubs, Café, Cinemas and little streets that will show you the truly essence of Rome.
6) Eat roman food
We suggest you the area around the “old Jewish ghetto “and try a plate of Jewish-style artichokes, which are deep-fried, you will remain speechless!
Roman food is characterized by cheese ( “pecorino romano”), pasta dishes (like “cacio e pepe”,“bucatini all’amatriciana and “spaghetti alla carbonara”).
7) Trevi Fountain
Trevi Fountain is the Fountain of the most popular scene of the movie” La Dolce Vita” with Anita Ekberg. It is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and, probably, the most beautiful in the world!
8) Campo de’ Fiori Market
Every Italian city has an outdoor market where you can buy foodstuffs. Campo de’ Fiori is the most popular in Rome. Citizens and tourists everyday go there to buy something. You can walk around the area, interact with the vendors and taste something. But, take note of this: it is open only during mornings!
9) Piazza Navona
If you go for a walk from Campo de’ Fiori, you will arrive to Piazza Navona. Piazza Navona is long and skinny and you will notice that is a square without corners. It was the site of an ancient Roman arena where people would go to watch athletic and theatre events.
