Rome is an amazing city with its rich history, but Rome can be exhausting as well with its packed museums, monuments, and piazzas. In this post we cover our favorites. If you plan it out well, you can even see the highlights in just two days. However we spreaded our must sees over four days which gave us time to see more of the city than just the highlights. Unfortunately we can’t cover them all, it might be too boring to you, so we narrowed it down in to our Top 5 things to do in Rome!
When in Rome it’s hard to skip on Vatican City. With its own stamps, flag, national anthem, own security service, and real the famous “Swiss Guards” who have been protecting the Pope since the 16th century, Vatican City is its own state within Rome. It may be overwhelming for first-timers (and experienced travellers too!), but it’s quite easy to navigate around. Expect to spend a full day here!
