If you are heading to Italy for a long weekend of a 10-day holiday, the first place that should at the top of everybody’s list is Rome. Believe me when I say that choosing just 5 places to visit in Rome is no easy task but I will take you through some of the most memorable places I have visited and remembered ever since. The more people you speak to about this beautiful city the longer your to do list will be as there is truly a great amount of places to visit and interesting things to see.
First on the list has to be Rome’s most famous monument, the Colosseum. The Colosseum has been stating strong in the city of Rome since the start of its construction in 72 AD and is a monument to ancient engineering. Take a guided tour around the Colosseum and learn about the great gladiatorial arena where many brave champions and animals lost their lives all in the aid of entertaining the crowds and embrace the rich history behind some of the city’s bloodiest battles in fought in front of 50,000 people.
If you are looking to same some of Rome’s cuisine and culture then head to the Campo dei Flori Markets. Taking a walk through this authentic Rome market will show you how the locals live and stock up on some of the city’s beautiful fresh produce. If youre lucky enough you man stop by one of the infamous tripe trucks where you can sample some of the best Italian food on offer.
Once you have filled yourself to the brim with the local cuisine why not walk to the Vatican Museums. The museums offer a wealth of Italian history and are constantly added to with some of the worlds greatest pieces of art making it one of the most amazing art collections in the world. Don’t forget to check out the museums most famous piece of art, Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel.
When the day is over and you need somewhere to relax and unwind after being constantly amazed by this beautiful city there is nothing better than checking into one of Rome’s most incredible rooms at the Casa Fabbrini http://www.casafabbrini.it/en/.
