10 Things to do in Rome!

Note: These are some things that we really enjoyed while in Rome. This is by no means the “top” 10 things to do or the best things to do, the top things are the one you make of when you visit Rome.

Go see the Colosseum. Did you know the Colosseum or Coliseum, was actually called Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo) (you can still see ‘Amphitheatrum Flavium’ used today). While you are there, show off your trivia! Learn more cool stuff about Colosseum!

Check out the Roman Forum and take a stroll around. Prepare yourself for a lot of walking, that’s the best way to enjoy Rome!
Have some amazing aromatic coffee in the morning and a corneto or two! Learn Italian and ask for your coffee and corneto in Italian (it doesn’t matter how bad it sounds!).
Visit the Vatican Museum (buy your tickets online in advance so you don’t have to stand in loooooong lines!) Want to know more? Read here!.
Splurge (and cool) yourself with Gelato’s! We loved the Old Bridge Gelateria!

Visit the churches in Rome! Some of them are huge and breath-takingly amazing! The church pictured above is Sant’Andrea Della Valle.
Visit Campo De’ Fiori, walk to Piazza Navona (the best Piazza in my opinion), then stroll to the near by (crowded) Pantheon and do visit the Tazza D’Oro Coffee Shop for Espresso con panna, then take a peek inside Gothic church Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, walk next to the secure Parliament and the towering Piazza Colonna, if you want to, shop at the Galleria Del’ Alberto Sordi, go throw some coins in Fontana di Trevi and rest your feet at Spanish Steps. You’d would have done the “Heart of the Rome” walk. Yes, you’ll be walking a LOT!
Visit the local shops and buy stuff and souvenirs to your hearts desire (do not forget to bargain!).
Visit the Saint Peter’s Basilica! You’ll see the La Pieta, towering high ceilings, larger than life statues and St. Peter’s dome and tomb. If your legs are tired already, climb to the cupola (320 steps) and see the city from an elevation! If you are lucky, you might get to see the one and only, Pope!
Food should be part and parcel of your trip. Eat some good pizza in the local restaurants. We wouldn’t recommend going to places where everyone in the restaurant speaks perfect English, you’ll most likely be disappointed with the food!
