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

  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;

  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!
