With 3000 years’ worth of historical sites layered throughout the city, Rome has endless attractions and sightseeing to do. If you are only visiting Rome for a short holiday and have not been here before, make sure not to miss the major landmarks in town.
What to see on a short city break to Rome Colosseum & Palatine – Starting from the ancient period and the building symbol of the town, this is one of the most visited places in the world. To avoid queues, tickets can be bought in advance and used throughout two days. If you are particularly interested in the ancient Rome and want to dedicate most of your visit to archaeological sites, consider taking the Archaeologia Card to get access to Colosseum, Palatine Museums, National Roman Museums and Baths of Caracalla amongst others.
Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and Fontana di Trevi – The best things in life are free! Rome is well described as an open air museum where the multitude of squares, churches and fountains are actually one of the main city attractions. These are only few of the main ones, where you can admire the splendour of baroque and renaissance architecture and sculpture which truly make Rome one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
The Vatican City – Visiting the Vatican can take up an entire day going from the Vatican Museums, Cappella Sistina to St Peter Basilica. So make sure you plan your visit well and consider staying in a hotel near the Vatican such as Hotel Mellini as a more convenient option for your short city break to Rome.
