While travelling around Europe, no trip is complete without a visit to the city of Rome! I spent five gorgeous days in the city exploring the attractions, indulging in gelato, and living a Lizzie McGuire dream…this is what dreams are made of!
From its awe-inspiring art, colourful streets, to ancient ruins, every corner is filled with beauty. Our hostel was very close to Rome’s main train station. Lots of tour buses are nearby so it makes it easy to book day trips and hop on/hop off tours. I recommend bringing proper shoes as it is very hot in the summer time. I wore gladiator sandals that made my feet so sore…but fashion is pain right!! Here is a list of must see places in the city:
MUST SEE PLACES IN ROME:
- Trevi Fountain
- Piazza Venezia
- Vatican (St. Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel)
Gelato shops in Rome are endless. Don Nino, GROM, and Gelateria del Teatro are just a couple of my fav shops. Definitely set aside a day to tour Vatican City, St. Peter’s Basilica and Sistine Chapel. Lines can be long so plan ahead. Rome has a lot of great museums to tour as well, I could go on and on about Rome but I hope to travel back at some point soon to share more stories and recommendations!
