Colosseo, Roma

If you have only three days to explore Rome, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of attractions and sights that this ancient city has to offer. However, with a well-planned itinerary, you can make the most of your time and enjoy the highlights of Rome without feeling rushed or stressed. Here is a suggested itinerary for a three-day tour of Rome that covers the main landmarks, museums, and neighborhoods.

Day 1: Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica
Start your tour with a visit to the Vatican City, the smallest sovereign state in the world and the seat of the Catholic Church. You can book a guided tour or explore on your own, but be prepared to queue for security checks and tickets. The Vatican Museums house a vast collection of art and artifacts from different eras and cultures, including the famous Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo’s frescoes. After admiring the museum’s treasures, head to St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest and most impressive church in Christendom. You can climb to the top of the dome for a panoramic view of Rome, or visit the crypt where many popes are buried.

Day 2: Colosseum and Roman Forum
On your second day, step back in time and discover the ancient history of Rome at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. The Colosseum is the iconic amphitheater where gladiators and wild animals fought for the entertainment of the masses. You can learn about its history and architecture with an audio guide or a live guide. The Roman Forum was the political, religious, and social center of ancient Rome, where temples, monuments, and public buildings stood. You can walk among the ruins and imagine how life was like in the Roman Empire.

Day 3: Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps
On your last day, enjoy a leisurely stroll through some of the most beautiful and lively areas of Rome. Start with a visit to the Trevi Fountain, the largest and most famous fountain in Rome. According to legend, if you toss a coin into the fountain, you will ensure your return to Rome. Next, head to the Spanish Steps, a monumental staircase that connects Piazza di Spagna with Piazza Trinità dei Monti. The steps are a popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike, and offer a great view of the city. From there, you can explore the nearby streets and squares, such as Via del Corso, Piazza del Popolo, and Piazza Navona, where you can find shops, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries.
