Two days in Rome, Italy

Pantheon Rome

We spent two wonderful days in Rome, Italy in January and it turned out to be not such a bad idea to travel there in the winter. The weather was quite alright with few exceptions of light rain and wind and the historical places weren’t packed with other tourists.

I will write more about the accommodation, food, and transport in following blog posts so stay tuned for that.

Why travel to Rome? Simply for its beautiful ancient sights and delicious Italian food, coffee and wine.

Here are the top historical monuments you should see while in Rome.

The Trevi fountain. It is possibly the world’s most famous fountain and it’s absolutely huge! If you want to return to Rome, toss a coin into the water.

The Colosseum. No need to introduce the largest amphitheater that was used for gladiatorial contests.

Just next to the Colosseum is a famous Arch of Constantine that is 1800 years old!

Right opposite the Colosseum there is a Roman Forum, full of triumphal arches to the houses of Emperors.

Spanish steps, one of the most romantic places in Rome. Have you seen the film ‘Roman Holiday’ with Audrey Hepburn? The Spanish steps are featured with one of the famous scenes in that film.

Vatican. If you don’t want to wait in the long queue to enter the Basilica di San Pietro, you can enjoy the monumental dimensions of this place from St. Peter’s Square with the Egyptian obelisk right in the middle.

Castle of the Holy Angel was built by emperor Hadrian as a castle and a prison. Nowadays it serves as a museum.

The streets of Rome. I advise you to walk anywhere you can. Most of these monuments are pretty close to each other and easily accessible by feet. If you walk through the streets of Rome you can see a lot of pretty streets, restaurants and antique stores. And speaking of antique? Have you seen the trams? 🙂

Nice photos, thanks for the tips! Going to Rome in May, so will make sure to visit all of these sites 🙂

I agree, walking is the best way to see Rome. Going there in winter is definitely not a bad idea either!
I was as an au pair in Rome in the 90’s. Knowing the streets like my own pockets- but the crowds today in Rome keep me away from there. Though, I could give a try next January 😉
