Things to do in Rome, Italy


Rome has to be one of my favourite European cities. It holds a special place in my heart and i love the combination of historical culture and a cosmopolitan city that binds the streets together. I love wandering through the back streets of Rome and discovering new parts of the city each time i visit.

I was visiting Rome in October which is meant to be a quieter time of year for tourists, however it was heaving when i visited. The weather was nice and warm and i got to see a lot of the city by day and by night. I covered a lot of ground whilst visiting Rome so comfortable shoes are a must, however train travel in the city is just as cheap. There was a strike taking place on the tube but i stayed in a hotel in Termini which meant everything in the city was walkable distance.

Whilst in Rome, I visited the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican City, Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, Castel St D’Angelo, the Spanish Steps and i finally made it to Trastevere. I had a lovely time visiting all the key hot spots in Rome and they were all truly beautiful. The views from Castel St D’Angelo are incredible and gives you some real insight into the way the city was constructed. It is hard to believe that the city is hundreds of years old when so much of it is so well taken care of pristine.

    Hi! First of all great post with awesome pictures of Rome. I’m visiting Rome in November and it will also be my first visit to Italy.

    I’m quite interested in visiting the most touristic monuments such as the Colosseum and the Vatican City.

    Is 1 day enough inside the Vatican? I’ve heard the museums and the sistine chapel are open for free during the 3rd weekend of every month and that is exactly during the days I’m spending there.

    I’m also thinking of buying the Roma Pass that provides me with great discounts and includes free entry to some museums, and also free transportation (metro+bus)

    Kind regards!

      Hi there, 1 day inside the Vatican is enough but the queues are horrific. Most days it opens at 1pm but you have to get there early to beat the crowds. I would recommend buying a ‘skip the line’ ticket if you want to get inside.

      I didn’t use the Roma Pass but i have similar things in other cities so i would see it as an investment.

      I hope this helps,
