Ah, Rome. With a history spanning some two and a half thousand years and more art and culture than you can experience in a lifetime, it's certainly worth the trip. The entire city centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, and I cannot even begin to tick off the reasons why. Here's a list though for where to start:
This was Rome’s main street in antiquity and truly lets you step back into time and uncover what Rome might have been like hundreds of years ago.
Unlike the Forum, the Pantheon looks exactly like it did 2000 years ago and as you walk on its marble floors you can truly transport yourself back thousands of years.
This structure is amazing and is brought to life by the tour guides who can take you through and explain how the Colosseum was built and now how its being restored.
Although technically its own city and state, the Vatican is a great experience. A great guide is essential here as they help lay a foundation of what you are seeing. Also don’t forget to visit St Peter’s Basilica and its famed dome built by Michelangelo.
This is a must! The fountain is spectacular and tossing in a coin is a tradition that will help guarantee you a return trip to this amazing city.
The steps were named after the Spanish who ruled Rome centuries ago and is a great spot to relax and do some people watching.
A favourite since the mid 1800’s. The market is located very close to the famous Piazza Navona and is a great place to grab some fresh food for a picnic lunch.
Rome is known for its cuisine so bring your appetite and some loose clothing for the after effect.
A great way to explore Rome is by foot. It is surprisingly accessible. With mostly car-free cobble stone streets, there is much to explore as you walk the streets of Rome.
These narrated tours allow you to see Rome at your own pace and provide a great way of getting around the city.
