Rome is such an amazing city. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting it twice in the past two years with my boyfriend Aaron. It’s such a huge city that’s littered with cobblestone streets, flowers, patio restaurants and good food. For those who are short on time it can become daunting trying to narrow down on things to do in Rome. But trust me it’s all doable, even walkable! Here are the top 6 things to do in Rome!
1. Visit the Trevi Fountain
No visit to Rome is complete without making a wish at the Trevi Fountain. The fountain is swarmed with people so be patient when trying to take a photo. There’s this man there who likes to take polaroids and he’s good at pushing people out of the way haha! Make your wish a good one!
2. Visit the Colosseum
Another one of Rome’s historic monuments, arguably the most impressive and famous of them all, is a must do on any trip to Rome. To stand inside the stadium is to be taken back in time, giving you just an idea of how amazing, and how brutal, Rome was. Be sure to get the FastPass to avoid extremely long lines.

3. Eat some gelato!
To go to Rome and not try gelato is like going to the movie theatre and not watching a movie. Actually anywhere in Italy will do for gelato but head to the Pantheon and get yourself a cup! My favourite flavours were Kinder Surprise Egg and Peppermint! The Kinder Surprise tasted exactly like the real thing. So good!
4. Go inside the Vatican.
Being inside the Vatican was an “awe” moment. It was beautifully designed and wonderful to explore. If you’re there then I recommend going to the Sistine Chapel. To appreciate it more I would have like to have done some research on Vatican City so I could have appreciated it more but it was an amazing experience altogether.
5. Visit a farmers market!
I loveeeeed the farmers market in Rome. It was heaven. Fresh fruit cups, macadamia nuts, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh veggies, deliciously flavours liquors.. it was amazing. I could have spent a hours in there and a hundred dollars on all the fresh products. I loved that they had a fruit stand with various fruits you could pick from and put in your own cup. Pineapple and watermelon were my choice of delicious. And a bag of macadamia nuts.
6. Try some pizza!
The pizza in Italy is amazing. Be picky with where you go though because not every restaurant lives up to the Italian hype. Trastevere is a great place to get drinks and food. It’s a lot less scammy and has the Old Rome vibe. For more about Rome click here!
