Every corner and every brick on a wall breathes with an incredible story or legend. But even the people who have found Rome very attractive to move to the city for good, spend thousands of hours discovering every hidden corner of the Eternal City.

1Rome bucket list

After many times I’ve visited this city and lots of information processed I made a Rome bucket list for you. It is divided into several groups, so that one could combine some of the must do things in a personal travel plan.

2Sightseeing

  2. Vatican — an independent country with the smallest territory, but with the biggest catholic Basilica in the world.
  3. Coliseum — no need to describe this attraction, you just go there.
  4. Trevi fountain — a masterpiece of plastic art with romantic ambiance around.
  5. Pantheon — one of the most impressive constructions in Rome, built in 126 B.C.
  6. Piazza (square) Navona — former stadium, but now an attractive area with 3 huge fountains and lots of street artists.
  7. Spanish Steps — the most popular place to ask “will you?”, opens panoramic view over Rome.
  8. Trastevere — cosy area full of cheap and tasty restaurants, bars, shops and just an amazing place to spend an evening.

6Activities

  1. Fight for your coffee — if you pay your coffee it doesn’t mean you get it, because usually in the morning there are a lot of people in bars and all of them have coffee and speak with each other at the bar, so you will have to squeeze;
  2. Queue for a pizza – Dar Poeta is one of the best pizzerias in the Rome, so to try it you will have to wait in a line;
  3. Get lost in Trastevere — use no map or navigation to wonder around this area;

  6. Have a night walk around Rome — just do it and enjoy;
  7. Run at Circo Massimo or have a horseback ride in Rome  — one of the oldest hippodromes in the world today is open for you, so take you chance and run there a mile or two;
  8. Visit Porta Portese market — biggest flea market in Rome and Italy;
  9. Drink water from springs as locals do — it is clean and fresh;
  10. Make a wish at Trevi fountain — through coins and make you wish!
