There is something incredibly special about Rome. Not only is it the Ancient Capital of the Roman Empire, but it’s the second most visited city in Europe – and for good reason. 

Spend a day Exploring The Vatican City, Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel

The museum is an art enthusiast’s haven. With over 1,000 rooms, each decorated with the finest pieces of Renaissance art and frescos, you could actually spend a whole day here and not see it all. 

Admire Renaissance Fresco’s in St Peter’s Basilica

The paintings, and even the architecture, were designed by some of the most famous classical artists such as Donato Bramante (who designed its facade), Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini. 

Step Back in Time at The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill

Built in the year 70 AD, this impressive structure was built as a stadium for 50,000 spectators. It was where the Romans watched gladiator games during ancient times, from fights to chariot races. 

Marvel at Roman Engineering in The Pantheon

The Pantheon is also home to the tombs of many of Rome’s greatest artists and royals, such as  King Vittorio Emanuele II, King Umberto 1, and his wife Queen Margherita of Savoy, and the Renaissance artist, Raphael. 

Throw a Coin in The Trevi Fountain

You cannot take a trip to Rome without visiting the Trevi Fountain. Perhaps THE most unmissable thing to do in Rome is to throw a coin in the fountain for good luck. 

Shop Luxury Brands Around The Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps are another attraction that is often regarded as one of the top places to visit in Rome. And while they are gorgeous and intricately designed, the steps themselves don’t take too long to see.
