5 Must-See Spots in Rome

5 Must-See Spots in Rome

If you’re looking for a great city break, Rome is a great option. Beautiful architecture, rich culture and delicious food – what more could you want!

There was just too much to see (and eat) so I decided to do two separate posts. In this post I’ll be sharing some of the most beautiful spots in Rome (as recommended by a few of my Italian friends) and separately I’ll share some great restaurants in a foodie’s guide to Rome.

So let’s get into it, looking for some gorgeous places to visit in Rome?

  1. Gianicolo

    From this romantic spot you can get a fantastic view of Rome! It’s also not too far from Vatican city. I recommend seeing it during the daytime and walking further to see Fontana d’Acqua Paola.

  2. Vatican City

    Now how could I put a list together and not include the Vatican? It’s a full-on day out and to do it “properly”, ideally give yourself enough time to explore and perhaps book a tour to save you from the crazy queues. There’s just so much to see!

    If of course this sounds way too touristy for you, you can always pop into the main square, take a couple of pictures and keep it moving! #aintnoshameinyourgame

  3. Giardino Degli Aranci

    This orange garden is great for a late afternoon stroll and also has a great view of the city. You can catch an absolutely beautiful sunset so time it right and thank me later…

  4. Trastevere

    On the west bank of the river, the narrow streets of Trastevere have a magical atmosphere. Cool little cafes and bars line the streets and the area is especially great for nightlife. It’s not far from the Giardino Degli Aranci either.

  5. Colosseum

    There was no way I could put this list together without including the Colosseum. Probably the most famous monument in Rome, you absolutely need to brave the crowds and at least get a peek of the historic ruins.

    For a different take, why not head there in the early evening to see it beautifully lit against the night sky – plus it’s quieter and cooler at that time!
