Top Things to Do and See in Rome, Italy

You cannot leave Italy without visiting Rome. It’s a city built on history. The City of Rome was once the largest city in the world between c. 100 BC- 400 AD. Not only that, it’s also the birthplace of Caesar and the home of the Catholic Church.

Visiting Rome, Italy’s capital, is like a gateway to a understanding of Europe. You’ll be so lost in their historical ruins along with the large crowd of tourists! Psst… Don’t forget that the city is famous for its nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display.

Getting around this city with Grandpa was fun and tiring at the same time because they have bad traffic, so taking their tour buses or other transportation takes forever. The best way to get around this city would be by walking! Keep that in mind.

If you’re visiting Rome and you aren’t sure what to check out, fret not, this will be considered as your guide to Rome with top attractions =)

Walk in the Colosseum

You have to see the ruins inside of Colosseum. This is a famous sight that you cannot miss. This is the biggest and most imposing amphitheater, and the most famous monument in Rome that is nearly 2,000 years old.  It is what shapes Rome today.

Visit the Vatican City

Why wouldn’t you want to miss out on checking out the home of the Pope and the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel, and all of the wonderful museums. Truth to be told, they have the biggest chapels I’ve ever seen with my own eyes. My grandpa can affirm that!

Go inside the Pantheon

A marvelous 2,000-year-old temple, now a church, the Pantheon is the best preserved of Rome’s ancient monuments and one of the most influential buildings in the Western world. Preserved with their original marble floors and a plethora of history. It’s also famous for the hole in the roof, the Oculus (The Eye of Pantheon), to let light and air in. People believe that rain do not fall through the hole, but that’s a myth as rain does fall through occasionally, but the floor is slanted and drains the water if it manages to hit the floor. Pretty cool, huh?

Wander the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

In my opinion, this is the best one you can get to contemplate over a beautiful sight of the ruins of Ancient Rome. It’s real big that you’ll find it difficult to believe this was where Rome administered it’s empire.

Toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain

Like duh! This is one of most famous attraction seen in many movies and other media. Well, it’s always crowded and it’s not what is used to be—open and accessible. Now, it’s fenced around and you can’t get close, but you still gotta toss two coins (one for love, one for a return to Rome). Be sure to throw it over your left shoulder for them to come true!

Go up on the roof of the Piazza Venezia

This is a beautiful spot to see. The Piazza Venezia is considered the central hub of Rome to this day, but it once served as the embassy of the Republic of Venice in Rome before Italy became united as one country. You can take elevator to the top of the piazza to get a 360 degree view of Rome.
