Rome wasn’t built in a day, so it can’t be toured in a day either. The city is a monstrous museum of epic proportion. If you’re finding that you will need more time to see it all, stand at the elegant Trevi Fountain and flip a coin over your shoulder and make the wish!
My second time around I spent double the amount of days as my first trip to enjoy the historic sites such as the Coliseum and the Pantheon, open air markets, and piazzas rich in color and flavors. Be sure to take a pit stop at an open-air café for a wood fire roasted artichoke, cappers, and smoky three cheese pizza.
One would be silly to miss out on a stroll across the cobblestones to visit the Sistine Chapel. Grab a map from your hotel or download one online and pop in and out of shops and museums dotted throughout the inner city walkways as the sun sets and the city illuminates in an orange hue. A picturesque Vatican City and all its allure is best enjoyed in the early morning or at sunset as the day winds to an end.
After the long day of weaving around the city, you’ll need to take a seat and people watch with a mouth watering dessert of thick Gelato or warm cappuccino. The nights are unbelievable as the city illuminates and the volume turns up a notch. Grab your buds and taste the night life, head out for a dance at the discos and sample the adult libations. There is something for everyone in the city of Rome.
