Rome is one of the oldest cities in the world and its history goes back 28 centuries. The city now has over 2 million inhabitants, with more than 4 million in the metropolitan area. But you can still feel like you’re back in time when strolling through its narrow streets, or visiting some of the old buildings around the city.
If I look back at all the places we’ve been to, I would say Rome is on our top 5.
Our Top Five Attractions
I will start the post with the most famous attraction in Rome – the Coliseum. Even if you’ve been there before (like myself), it still impresses when you get close to it.
We bought the ticket to visit the Colosseum’s interior beforehand through the official website. We booked the self-guided option, as we thought the girls would get bored with a tour.
Fontana di Trevi
We ended the 3rd with a visit to villa medici, which is a palace of this family that was very important for Roman and Italian history as well. The palace is between Villa Borguese and Piazza di Spagna, basically. Of course, before we got there, we managed to get lost along the wall of Villa Borguese and we must have walked about 2km for a while, coming and going… aghrrr… Finally we get the information that the main access to Villa Medici takes place at the top of the staircase (Spanish Steps), on the same street as the Trinitá di Monti church, only following the left. There we did the only guided tour of the whole trip and it was very cool, especially the beautiful panoramic view of Rome that is from the courtyard of the palace.
