If you’re fortunate enough to visit Rome, Italy be sure to take in all the incredible historic sites. You can visit the majority of them within 2-3 day stay.
Colloseum– Spectacular, a definite must-see! Get there early to avoid the crowds and be careful of pick-pocketing during high tourist season.
Vatican- visit on a Wednesday (if possible) when the Pope speaks. Please verify this is still the case and the Pope is in Rome during your stay before booking. You can obtain free tickets from the guards at the gate but you must go there the day before.
The subway system is easy to navigate to use as your method of transportation “when in Rome”.
With so many great options you’re bound to find just the place. Be sure to book ahead if it’s a Michelin star restaurant or a Friday or Saturday evening. I didn’t eat a bad pasta the entire time I was in Italy!
La Pentolaccia– A restaurant with great food, service, and ambiance!
“When in Rome” be sure to look for the great gelato places. There a fantastic “hidden” gelato shop just at the bottom of the Spanish stairs. Look into the alley and you’ll see it. It was the best place we found in Rome.
