Places you can visit when in Rome
Whether it is your first time or not, when you are in Rome, you can always find more places to visit. For first time visitors, first of all, you need to visit the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica. Vatican Museum is a big part of the Vatican City. When you are in Vatican Museum, you will also have the chance to visit the Vatican Galleries where you will must likely have some line to get in. After passing through inside the Vatican, you will reach St. Peter’s Basilica. This Basilica is one of the four major basilicas in Rome. It’s built on top of the ruins of old St. Peter’s Basilica.
Secondly, you should visit the ‘Ancient Rome‘ which is the Roman Forum, Colosseum and Palatine Hill. Colosseum is the most known part of the Ancient Rome where gladiatorial contest and public spectacles were held. This amphitheater is the largest ever built during Roman Empire. After, you will visit the historical residence of the Caesars, the Palatine Hill.
Thirdly, you can do an electric bike tour of the back street of Rome. This 3 hour long tour will take you to the main points of the old city by passing through the Trevi Fountain or Spanish steps.
Lastly, you can attend the Papal Audience. This is a great opportunity to ‘meet’ the Pope. It takes place at St. Peter’s square with a very large crowd. Although, it is one of the most recommended attractions in Rome, we also need to advise you that there is never a guaranteed spots during this service.
Aside from above historical places, you can have the classical Roman style food, pasta and some wine when you need to take a small break from touristing.
