Covering Rome in Six Days



Description:

With main avenues that loop around the Colosseum and cat sanctuaries nestled into ancient ruins, Rome has taken careful steps to build its current foundation around the ruins of the ancient city. Archaeological findings are common to this day and have been well preserved to allow locals and tourists alike to glimpse into one of the oldest civilizations in history.

Day 1 - Rome


A wonderful way to start a day in historic Rome is to begin in the beautiful Villa Celimontana, exploring the park, ancient alleys and churches. Take a peek at the gigantic fish and camouflaged turtles in the fountains in the park. Via San Giovanni in Laterano leads straight back to the Colosseum and other sights.

Day 2 - Rome


Get to the Vatican Museums as early as possible to avoid spending the better part of the morning in line. Unfortunately, the only way to skip the line is to join a tour, though it would be recommended to visit the museum at your own pace, picking up an audio guide if desired. After visiting the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter’s Basilica, stop over at a popular restaurant before heading to the Prati district and Via Cola di Rienzo for some shopping and ice cream!

Day 3 - Rome


Make sure your morning visit to Campo de’ Fiori falls on any day other than Sunday, as it’s quite an experience to see the market in full action. People sit for hours at the cafés in the piazza and people watch while having their breakfast. Piazza Navona is always bubbling with various exhibits, from finger puppet shows to caricature artists. After visiting the Pantheon, stop at Caffè della Pace. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch some live music! After dinner, sip a bellini at one of the most popular bars in the city.

Day 4 - Rome, Florence


Piazza Venezia and Piazza del Popolo are connected by Via del Corso, the city’s main shopping street. From Palazzo Venezia, you will see an unbeatable view of Rome, from San Giovanni to San Pietro. Walking down Via del Corso, make a stopover at Fontana di Trevi and toss a coin in the fountain. Wander over to Piazza di Spagna and find the hidden restaurant GiNa for lunch. Head back to Via del Corso and walk towards Piazza di Popolo where you will see the entrance to Villa Borghese at the top of the hill. If the day is nice, spend time walking around Villa Borghese and end up at the Hotel Eden for a lovely dinner and view of the city. Late night drinks on the patio at Doney.

Day 5 - Rome


While visiting the San Giovanni Basilica, try to locate the columns just inside the entrance to the right. If you stand at one column and speak into it, someone listening at the column diagonally across will be able to hear you! Hint: look for the worn in/marked up columns to see where it works. Stop across the street to visit the Scala Santa and then make your way over to the Catacombs. While you could walk down Via Appia Nuova to get to the Caffarella, it may be better to take public transportation to ensure you make it in time to see the Catacombs. Take a map when exploring the vast Caffarella park as there is much to see and it’s easy to get lost inside! After a long day, head to a local favorite, Bibelot, for a warm drink or refreshing cocktail to whet your appetite for nearby Spaccanapoli, Neapolitan cuisine.

Make sure to try out Taverna del Ghetto or another nearby restaurant specializing in the neighborhood’s cuisine. Artichokes are a classic specialty. Trastevere is easy to reach from the Ghetto and it’s a tourist and local favorite for going out at night.
