"Dissecting Rome" Rome in One, Two or Three days Tip by mccalpin

Rome in One, Two or Three days, Rome: 17 reviews and 10 photos

If you are coming to Rome for the first time, you have to realize that you will never see all of Rome in a few days...or week...or month...so what can you do?

Well, one solution is to realize that as an experienced traveler (or soon-to-be), you will be coming to Rome more than once. In that case, it would be sensible to pick a theme for Rome. For example, you may want to visit religious Rome - center of the Roman Catholic Church. You can see St. Peter's, the Vatican Museums, St. John Lateran, Santa Maria Maggiore, St. Paul outside the Walls - umpty-bumpty places.

Or you might choose ancient Rome - the Roman Forum, the Colliseum, the Pantheon, the Circus Maximus, the Palatine Hill, the Museum of the City of Rome in EUR.

Or you might choose to see modern Rome - Piazza di Spagna, shopping all along the Via del Corso, Via Veneto, Piazza Navona.

Or...well, you get the idea. Don't kill yourself seeing Rome for the first time - in the words of the Terminator, tell yourself, "I'll be back."
