Let’s not forget a visit to the capital of Italy and The Vatican! You simply must visit the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and Sistine Chapel… along with hundreds more beautiful places. Make sure to spend at least a few days in Rome, we were there for 3 days and barely got to all that we wanted to see! One important thing you should do.
Go and get lost!
I’m serious… I’m not being rude. Just step out in the morning, turn your phone to silent or better yet aeroplane mode and set out into the streets of Rome and let destiny take you where it will!
We did this very thing one day and while wandering around, we came across a painting that we were convinced was our little Vita! I’m still shocked by how much this painting looked like her while she played with a fountain only the day before we saw it there.
One of the best things you can do in Rome is to get lost. Find a local and ask for directions, try asking them whether there is something nearby that they think you should have a look at, if you’re a foodie, hit the back streets. Prices tend to be lower and the food much better.
There are so many within 10 minutes of the main attractions that the problem will be choosing which one to go to. But there is an easy solution to this, go to the business ones, get into the crowd and strike up a conversation with the friendliest looking ones there! You will have an amazing time in Rome!
