To be able to visit Rome, with all its wonderful museums, churches, monuments, it takes several days or you have to return more than once.
But I would like to help you with some advice, to make the most of your time even if you come for 3, 5 or more days.
I will name the best known and most important places such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum and the Trevi fountain, which those who come to Rome must visit at least once and the lesser known but still interesting places for their history and beauty.
Basilica of Saint Peter
From the houses to reach the Basilica of San Pietro and Castel Sant Angelo is very simple and in 15 minutes walking you will arrive at your destination to visit this marvel of Rome.
To visit the San Pietro area it takes more than a day, considering that just to visit the Vatican museums it takes almost a day.
After the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s rooms and the other beauties, you can dedicate another day to pay a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, where I recommend you go up to the dome and enjoy the view of St. Peter’s Square which is beautiful.
Castel San t Angelo is opposite the basilica of San Pietro, which is also very beautiful, especially the passetto di Borgo, that is the passage that leads from the castle to the Basilica.
In summer, in front of Castel Sant ‘Angelo, there are many stands and stalls where you can buy souvenirs of Rome and meet street artists and musicians who frame it.
From the apartments the Colosseum is about 20 minutes on foot, to reach it you will pass through many delightful streets including the Jewish quarter, with its famous patisseries and characteristic shops.
If you come to my beautiful city you will therefore have to visit the symbolic monument of Rome, the Colosseum and the archaeological area of the Roman forum and the palatine where on 21 April 753 BC Romulus founded the city.
To visit them just buy a single ticket that allows you to visit both (Colosseum and Forum + Palatine Hill) valid also the day after the first stamping.
So you can see the Colosseum one day and the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill the following day (or vice versa).
A little tip …
To avoid long queues you can either enter at lunchtime or in the late afternoon when there are fewer people or buy a skip-the-line ticket.
Or take a guided tour that will allow you to get to know the places better even if you will need a little more time, even a whole day.
