3 days in Rome

Mille viae ducunt homines per saecula Romam (A thousand roads lead men forever to Rome)

3 days in Rome

No matter where you walk in Rome you are roaming in the footsteps of history.  For over 2500 years warriors, popes, emperor had left a mark in the city: remains from ancient Rome, the treasures of the Vatican city, Renaissance palazzos and baroque fountains. 

I adored Rome and its chaos. The charming alleys, the old fiat cinquacentos (the car of my dreams!), the gelatos, the food, the granita and the fact that everywhere I was is part the today's history.  We spent 3 days and a half, even when I was sick half of the time, we managed to visit all the sites we wanted.

We arrived in the afternoon and wander around the hotel.  We stayed close to Piazza Navona and I highly recommended the area.  It is a really conveninet location.  We walked to all the attractions, some were 10-30 minutes walk.

Day 1
Our first stop was the Vatican, we spent the day touring the two famous huge sights: St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum.   At the evening we walked from Piazza Navona all the way to the Trevi fountain.  With a stop at the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps.

Day 2
Another day was reserved for the "Ancient Rome Tour".  Once there were the greatest buildings of a city of a million people, today the most iconic sights: The Roman forum and the Colosseum.

Day 3
The last day we wanted to slow down! We spent the morning at the Villa Borghesa Gardens and  shopping streets nearby.
