THREE DAY ITINERARY FOR ROME
Rome, known as the Eternal City, offers the history of over 2000 years. To be honest, there is no way you will be able to see everything Roma has to offer in 3 days.
When you are traveling with time restrictions, you have to make the best of what you have. With my three day itinerary, you will enjoy the must visits.
Day One in Rome (Roma)
(1) Visit Colosseum (First thing in the morning to avoid queues)
The Rome’s most famous monument, The Colosseum (Amphitheatrum Flavium), is the largest amphitheater in the world. The Colosseum was built for three reasons. A gift to the Roman Citizens from the Flavian Dynasty to increase their popularity, to stage various forms of entertainment and to showcase Roman engineering techniques to the rest of the world.
(2) The Roman Forum is an archaeological area, from Palatine Hill, the Campidoglio, Via Dei Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum, consisting all history dating back over 2000 years, will leave you speechless.
(3) The Trevi Fountain is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in Rome; it is also one of the most famous fountains in the world.
End your day in the city center after the Trevi Fountain, why not wonder the streets of Roma, have some wine and pasta or pizza in one of the off-street cafes.
Day Two in Rome (Roma)
Visit Vatican City. (First thing in the morning to avoid queues).
(4) The Vatican Museums, Located in Viale Vaticano, within the Vatican City.
(5) The Sistine Chapel, dedicated to Mary Assumption in Heaven, is the main chapel of the Apostolic Palace. Enjoy the magnificent work of Micheal Angelo. Don’t forget to spend time studying the Last Judgement on the altar wall.
(6) St Peter’s Basilica, one of the largest churches ever built. People come from all over the world to visit this holy place.
(7) Piazza del Popolo is one of the most famous squares in Rome, at the foot of the Pincio. Enjoy a relaxing dinner, while people watching. A perfect way to end your day.
Day Three in Rome (Roma)
(8) Spanish Steps, an excellent way to work off all the pastries from breakfast. Because it is one of the free things to do, this place gets super busy, so remember to take a moment and enjoy.
(9) Piazza Venezia & Altare Della Patria was built in 1878, following a decision by the Italian Parliament, to dedicate a national monument to the just passed sovereign Vittorio Emanuele II.
(10) Circus Maximus, A big open park. Now days enjoyed by locals and tourist for picnics, but back in the day, this was an entertainment playground for the Emporer enjoying chariot racing. Can you imagine the excitement and the atmosphere back in those days?

These are really great suggestions! I’ve been to Rome several times and I never get tired to visit those places <3 The Colosseum and the Vatican are absolutely my favorite 🙂
There is so much to see in Rome – the major part of the city is like an open air museum. Love it!
There is so much to see and do in Rome. Don’t forget the gelato, too! The lines were too long for the Vatican last time we visited, but we did wake up early to get in free on the first Sunday for the Colosseum. 🙂
I love Rome! I think this is a great itinerary, you’ve covered all the biggies and important ones. I think the Colosseum has to be my favourite though. I’ve been twice and every time I get that wow feeling again.
I haven’t made it to Rome yet but the Sistine Chapel is definitely on my list once I do! This looks like a great way to spend three days
Thanks for sharing. These are really useful for me. I’m heading to Rome in June and have been looking into different things to see and do when we get there.
