THE COLOSSEUM & FORUM
PIAZZA DI SPAGNA / SPANISH STEPS
ALTARE DELLA PATRIA
Every street has a story to tell.
EXPLORE AT NIGHT
Rome has a whole different vibe at night and it’s definitely worth experiencing.
Some other things you should definitely check out while in Rome are:
Black Market Restaurant – this place has the best cocktails and a speakeasy vibe.
Custom sewn pieces from this gentleman on the street. I can’t remember which street exactly but just keep a look out.
Gelato at Fatamorgana. This was my favorite gelato place because they had unique flavors and lots of dairy free options:)
Salotto 42 for an afternoon apertivo.
Where to stay
The Independent Suites was a cute last minute hotel we booked. The rooftop has one of the best views of the city and their apertivo hour is perfect for after a long day of walking around.
2 Day Rome Itinerary
Day 1 is sightseeing day. The architecture and history of Rome is beyond your wildest dreams, so you have to make sure to see these magnificent sights first and foremost. But definitely don’t forget to try some gelato and wine along the way.
- The Colosseum & Forum
- Trevi Fountain
- Giolitti for gelato (founded in 1890!)
- Piazza di Spagna / Spanish Steps
Now that you’ve seen most of the best places in Rome, day 2 is more of a slower paced day to soak it all in. Don’t be afraid to get lost. I find that when you get lost is when you stumble upon the most unique places.
- Altare della Patria
- Get lost
- St Peter’s Square
- Castel Saint Angelo
