Rome is one of the most amazing cities in the world.

Known as the Eternal City, Rome is like an open-air museum with monuments over 2,000 years old, baroque fountains of incredible beauty, hundreds of ancient churches, neighbourhoods full of charm, museums with unique collections and, above all, traditional restaurants to experience one of the best cuisines in the world.

In the morning:

Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum

It is one of the most emblematic buildings in the world, it was erected more than 2,000 years ago, has undergone many changes throughout history and part of it today is a ruin. It was the largest amphitheatre built during the Roman Empire and, despite the hours in line, it is well worth visiting. A word of advice: buy tickets in advance.

Venice plaza (Venice plaza) and Vittorio Emanuele II monument

Piazza di Spagna


There are a variety of restaurants in the vicinity of piazza di spagna, but I advise you to eat some sandwiches so as not to waste too much time.

In the afternoon:

Villa Borghese

This park is one of the few green spaces in the city and is perfect for disconnecting from chaotic traffic and enjoying peaceful walks surrounded by nature. In addition, it offers an incredible view over the city of Rome.

Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)

One of the most famous and most beautiful fountains in the world. For those who like superstitions, toss two coins on their backs (one for love, one for returning to Rome), over their left shoulder.

If you have the chance, visit the Trevi Fountain at night, as the place is even more magical.


Piazza di Navona

Sant’Angelo Castle



At the end of the day, enjoy a spritz on a terrace in one of the squares and enjoy the atmosphere of the city of Rome.

For dinner, there are several around the city center, but I recommend the Vos Roma restaurant in the historic center.
