Rome is one of my favorite cities. This was my second time traveling to Rome and I loved it just as much, if not more. The architecture is gorgeous and the history of the city is incredible. There is so much to see and do in Rome, but it isn’t overwhelming, which I love. Both times I have been to Rome, the weather has been absolutely perfect. The first time I went to Rome I went in May and each day was sunny and 80 degrees. This past March each day was 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky.
What To See & Do
I had such a Lizzie McGuire fangirl moment at the Trevi Fountain. Don’t forget to throw a coin into the fountain and make a wish!
The Colosseum is absolutely incredible… I still can’t believe it is standing today after 2,000 years. I recommend purchasing tickets as well as a guided tour online beforehand so you don’t have to wait in the long line to buy a ticket and get all the information you need!
The Roman Forum is right next to the Colosseum and it is amazing. I definitely recommend going here before after touring the Colosseum. We bought a ticket that included both the Roman Forum and the Colosseum which was very convenient.
Visiting the Vatican City was one of my favorite experiences. The Map Room is incredible. I definitely recommend purchasing tickets and a guided tour online.
Where To Eat
We had the BEST meal at Grazi & Graziella. You MUST get the Bolognese Lasagna. It will be the most incredible meal of your life. Hands down.
We just so happened to stumble across this pizza place called Piccolo Buco. There was a line out the front door so we assumed it was good. It was one of the best Margherita pies I have ever had (and I have had a lot of pizza). The service was great too.
Gradi 200 is the most delicious sandwich shop right next to the Vatican. You must stop for a quick bite before or after your tour of the Vatican. You won’t regret it!!
Giolitti is the best gelato place in all of Rome (some say of Europe). I think we went at least twice a day.
