One Full Day in Rome



Description:

Nowadays, Rome's revered historic monuments coexist with life in a big city. Walking around the historic center, it is almost impossible not to bump into some sort of excavation. For example, the construction of Rome's third metro line has been ongoing for years but is frequently impeded by a new discovery tracing back to ancient Rome! If you have just one day to see the city, you will probably want to spend the majority of it visiting sights from the Imperial and Renaissance periods. Make the day more feasible by sticking mainly to the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia/Via del Corso neighborhood.

Day 1 - Rome


This will be a very full day, but it is possible to come to Rome for a day and see most of the main sights. Starting out at the Colosseum, you can trace your way ruin-by-ruin (follow sequence in list) over to Piazza Venezia, where a quick ascent to the top of Palazzo Venezia will provide you with a panoramic view of Rome. Have some lunch at Hostaria Costanza, at the supposed location of Julius Caesar’s death, and then head over to Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Make your way to Via del Corso and then the Trevi Fountain to toss a coin in the fountain and then walk around the Piazza di Spagna cobblestoned neighborhood. Walk over to Piazza del Popolo and head up the steps to have a walk around Villa Borghese. Top off the day with a walk down historic Via Margutta and a typical Roman dish at Osteria Margutta. If you still have some energy, see if there are any shows playing at Teatro Sistina.
