10 Reasons You’ll Never Get Bored on Your Next Vacation in Rome
Advertising

Realistically, there are countless things to do while visiting Rome. There are ancient structures, historical museums, fresh fountains, and everything in between. While you are taking time between having the best cuisine in the world for each meal, don’t miss out on these breathtaking places that you must visit on your vacation in Rome.

1. Explore the Pantheon

Quite possibly the best preserved structure from ancient Rome, the Pantheon sits adjacent to Piazza della Rotonda. Construction was completed in 126 AD and this structure has served as a Roman Catholic Church since the 7th century. The architecture of both the inside and the outside are well worth the visit.

2. Throw a Coin into the Trevi Fountain

This structure is famed worldwide, as there is a legend that says whoever throws their coin into the fountain will one day return to Rome. Many times, the fountain is too crowded to get close to it, so you may need to wait a little while to be able to get close enough to toss your coin in.

3. Have a Historic Day at the Colosseum

This historic structure is said to be the largest amphitheater in the Roman world. At its prime, the space used to have a capacity of about 50,000 to 80,000 people that could use any of the 80 entrances. Construction was completed on the Colosseum in 80 AD, and today, tourists pay to see what is left of the historic structure. The last performance took place in 523. Afterwards, it was used as a fortress, then acted as a source for building materials for other now-historic sites.

4. Pick up Fresh Fruits & Vegetables at Campo de’ Fiori

Located in the Piazza Navona, this famous Roman marketplace is where you can purchase vegetables, fruits, flowers, and fish. It is the perfect stop when you are meandering through the city. This market will give you an authentic Italian feel with the selections offered by vendors, and it is surrounded by booming pubs and local wineries that stay open late.

5. Meet up with Friends at the Spanish Steps

This is the ideal location to meet up with friends or family that are also in Rome. Throbbing with energy, this hot spot is almost always bustling with a crowd. Throughout the year, the steps are only decorated occasionally, except for late April to early in May, when the steps are consistently adorned with flowers.

6. Entertain Kids at Rainbow Magic Land

This theme park is located about 49km away from Rome in Valmontone, and is centered around fun for the whole family. In total, 35 attractions are aimed to entertain kids and adults alike. There are thrill rides, stunt shows, aquatic ballet, fairies show, fireworks display, and water attractions in the summer. For the month of October, the park is embellished with a Halloween theme. This is a must for anyone that is traveling with kids.

7. Take Pictures at Piazza Farnese

One of the most beautiful squares in Rome, it is overtaken by Renaissance Palazzo Farnese, a 16th century structure that is currently used as the French Embassy. All of the best Renaissance artists had a hand in its construction, so it is said to be the most beautiful Renaissance structure in Rome — and also in all of Italy.

8. Relax Completely at Monti

Smaller and less popular than some other cities, Monti will give you a true feeling of community. You can catch your breath sitting at one of the fountains or cool down with some local gelato.

9. Flock the Trastevere Flea Market

Still classically Italian, this city’s narrow roads are lined with bookstores, boutiques, bars, and clubs along with the old churches and unique cafes. Each Sunday you can find the flea market, where vendors are selling everything from artwork to clothing to antiques for next to nothing.

10. Enjoy Free Concerts at Circus Maximus

Circus Maximus is the largest Roman stadium, with the ability to house 185,000 observers. Visitors can enjoy the view of Palatine Hill, or alternatively can view the Circus Maximus from the imperial palaces on the Palatine hill. In ancient Rome, it served as the venue for horse racing, but is now used for free concerts.
