Traveling to Rome? Wondering what (all) to do? These are some of the best things (in our opinion) to do in Rome. Be prepared to walk if you really want to enjoy Rome :).
St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the most esteemed work of the Renaissance architecture and one of the most holiest places is really the most gorgeous structure we have EVER seen. The intricately designed statues and the beautiful paintings leave one in awe. The basilica sits on the tomb on st. Peter’s and hosts La Pieta, the world-famous Renaissance sculpture done by Michelangelo himself.
During our third day in Italy, we went on a Heart of the Rome Walk, visiting popular landmarks such as Sant’Andrea Della Valle, Campo De’ Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Santa Maria Sopra Minerva,Galleria Del’ Alberto Sordi, Fontana di Trevi and Spanish Steps
Our second day in Italy – The highlight of the trip was awaiting us this day at St. Peter’s Basilica! Visited Vatican Museum, hosting some of the best architectural sculptures and paintings.
On our first day in Roma, though we were exhausted after a long flight journey, we were able to visit a few popular tourist destinations such as the Roman Colosseum, Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill, Victor Emmanual Monument and the Imperial Forum. As it is popularly said, Rome is best explored on foot; you’ll be surprised by unique architectures at every nook and corner.
The most popular landmark and iconic symbol of Rome! It is still considered to be one of the best architectural marvels of the world. This colossal structure holds up to 80,000 people and was a popular arena for gladiator fights back in those days. Unlike the pictures I have seen where the structure peacefully sits on green meadows; it is actually located in a very busy and noisy street.
The once market place, that became the economic, political, and religious hub, town square, and center of all Rome, Roman Forum (Forum Romanum) is one of the most popular sights in Rome.
