The city has an endless collection of ancient ruins, historical monuments and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Then there is Rome – the city.

We’ve included where to stay in Rome, how to get around, and a fabulous three-day Rome itinerary with an optional 4th day that will ensure you see the best attractions.

Day 1 Ancient Rome Colosseum and Ancient Sites

Start your time in Rome with a visit to the Eternal City’s most iconic ancient sites – The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill.

The Colosseum

The Colosseum, built to hold up to 80,000 spectators is still the largest amphitheater ever built. Surviving earthquakes, fires, wars, and riots, 2,000 years later it continues to draw a crowd.

Day 2 Rome City Center

One of the most famous and beautiful squares in Rome. Piazza Navona, built on the site of an ancient Roman stadium features three magnificent fountains.

The Pantheon

The Pantheon, originally a Roman temple to all gods, then a Roman church has the largest unsupported and unreinforced concrete dome in the world.

Day 3 Vatican City and Trastevere

The smallest country in the world but one of Rome’s biggest attractions. Many people plan a visit to Vatican City to see all the main attractions in one day which makes good sense.

Visiting The Vatican Museums

Start your day at the Museums. Early in the morning, you will have a chance to enjoy the museums, leisurely and in relative peace.
