Last week I spent three amazing days in Rome. If I could have had a couple of extra days however, I would have, to spread out the sightseeing as covering them all in pretty much 48 hours was exhausting.
I say 48 hours because the first day we didn’t do a lot of sightseeing we mainly just walked around Rome. That’s an experience in itself. I noticed everyone seems to smoke there and your lucky to get a seat on a bus. There are also striking statues dotted around such as that of Pope John Paul II, so your eyes are always busy even just walking around the romantic city.
For a matter of two days we did an impressive amount which included the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, the Vatican, St. Peters Basilica, the Pantheon, the Garden Of Villa Borghese and my favourite the Trevi Fountain (at night). We also managed to eat some incredible pizza which has now made me not want to eat pizza in England anymore because it was just so good and some delicious gelato which had somewhat of the same effect.
I’d say that overall three days in Rome is not enough but if you don’t have a choice for whatever reason that may be, don’t fret, you’ll definitely be able to see a lot and you can use this blog post as proof and motivation. Just make sure that you wake up early, that you’re well rested and to drink plenty of water because Rome is one of the most tiring cities I’ve visited not just because of our time constraint but because of all the walking!
