Quick Guide: See & Taste Rome in 3 Days

June 28, 2019

 

My first visit to Rome was on my honeymoon. The thing that struck me most was that there were palm trees! My new husband and I wandered the streets, drank wine and dreamed of our future together. We had never been to someplace so ancient, so beautiful or so overwhelming - especially when we had just a few days to see everything we wanted to see!

 

Rome is an extraordinary capital and it can take weeks or more to get in all the sites, cuisine and culture. But don't stress! Below is a quick 3-day guide that will pinpoint the absolute best places to visit if time is of the essence.

 

Day 1- Vatican, St. Peter’s, Trastevere

To get the most out of your day, start early! You want to arrive at the Vatican in the morning to beat the crowds. Be sure to dress humbly in reverence of the religious city-state (covered shoulders and legs). Take an early walk and explore the global city streets. You can sit on the gorgeous Spanish Steps and take in the ethos and people watch before beginning your adventure. Next, head over to the Vatican museums.There are over 54 Christian and art galleries within the city and the collections are stunning. Be sure to visit the Sistine Chapel which holds the striking ceiling art done by legendary artist, Michelangelo. Once you’ve gotten your fill of art, stop by Via delle Grazzie and grab some lunch. To top your day of, have some fun at the beautiful neighborhood Trastevere. If possible, check out award winning La Gatta Buia, they have an unbelievable Fiori di Zuca (squash blossom)!

 

Day 2- Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum

The best way to begin your second day is to hop aboard the Metropolitana (subway) and take a ride to the Colosseau station. Once you’ve arrived, stop by the ticket counter and purchase your one ticket that will grant access to the ColosseumPalatine Hill and the Roman Forum (If possible, avoid first Sundays)!  Be sure to do some research on this ancient wonder beforehand so that you understand what you’re exploring. There are many spigots throughout the area with fresh water, grab a bottle before leaving. Now, it’s time to hike up the Palatine Hill!  It may be wise to get a private tour if possible. The views from the hill towers are stunning and overlook the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. On your way back, keep left to arrive at the Forum to take in even more majestic views. Grab some dinner and get some rest for your final day!

 

Day 3– Pantheon, Largo di Torre Argentina, Piazza Navona

Begin your last day with an espresso and head over to the Trevi fountain. Keep with tradition and toss in a coin for good luck!  Next, head over to the Pantheon church. While there, be sure to be respectful and keep your voice low. After a good lunch, stroll over to Largo di Torre Argentina, which is also known as a cat sanctuary. The cats are well take care of by a local charity and feeding them is prohibited. Lastly, we have Piazza Navona to explore. This elegant showcase Square in Rome is built on the Stadium of Domitian. If possible, visit at sunset as the sight of the Square is awe-inspiring.  

 

Now that you’ve accomplished an impressive three-day tour.  Enjoy a great glass of wine and rest up before heading back from this wonderous city.
