Vacation in Europe | How to organize a 3-day vacation in ROME


Considering that flight prices have decreased by 23% in the last year, it would be appropriate to organize a city break in Rome. How? Very simple!

For accommodation, head towards the city center as much as possible to take in all the tourist attractions. Although the transport network is very developed, Rome is a city worth exploring carefully, especially since many attractions are next to each other. The price for 3 nights in accommodation near the center starts from 150 euros.

Since Rome is a city loaded with history, you will have a long list of places you can visit. And because there are many attractions, but time is short, we thought of making your job easier and organizing an itinerary for 3 days in Rome, so you don't miss anything that this city has to offer.

DAY 1: The Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Paladin Hill

Not only are they very close in terms of distance, but a ticket for Colosseum it also guarantees you entry to The Romanian Forum and Paladin Hill for 24 hours. Because Rome is a favorite city for tourists at any time of the year, we recommend you to opt for purchasing tickets online, to avoid the enormous queues at the entrance. The price for adults varies from 14 to 18 euros, and for young people between the ages of 18 and 25, it starts from 4 euros.

If you did not manage to find accommodation near the center or you are simply not fond of walking, you can get here by metro (line B, "Colosseo" station) or with bus lines 75, 81, 673, 175 or 204.

Depending on how much time you spend in the 3 places and the remaining energy, you can visit nearby Trajan's Column, Venice Square, Capitoline Museums or Arch of Constantine.

DAY 2: The Vatican and Sant' Angelo Castle.

For a complete "analysis" of Vatican  you should allocate at least 3 hours to it. It would be ideal to consult an interactive map beforehand to make a visit plan, so as not to miss any of the famous attractions such as The Sistine Chapel, Art Gallery (where are his works Leonardo da Vinci or Rafael Sanzo), inner yard or St. Peter's Basilica. Do you think there are few tourist attractions for 3 hours? Just think that the basilica of San Pietro is the largest in the world, and the feeling you will have once you enter there will be overwhelming. If you still have fresh strength left for "caroling" around the Vatican, you can still visit The Egyptian Museum, The Vatican Library, St. Peter's Square or Niccolina Chapel.

We also recommend purchasing tickets online, which range from 8 euros for young people up to 24 years old, up to 17 euros for adults. This will save you from the queues at the entrance. Obviously, the price can increase if you want a guided tour.

1km from Vatican you will be greeted by another representative building of Rome namely Sant'Angelo Castle, a former mausoleum of the emperor Hadrian, later transformed into a castle by the popes, and now it can be visited as a museum, housing numerous historical collections such as objects of the Italian army, paintings and sculptures.

The price varies from 8 to 20 euros, depending on age. Also, the location is perfect for great photos, for example on the bridge over the Tiber of the castle.

In the evening you can stop at Pantheon and in Navona Square, because it will be freer, these two tourist spots being very crowded during the day. Don't be afraid if it gets dark, the Pantheon is much more beautiful in the evening, being lit up.

DAY 3: Villa Borghese, Centro Storrico and Fontana di Trivi

Villa Borghese it is the largest park in Rome including a lake, museums, temples, fountains and statues. Until you get here you can go through Piazza di Spagna or Piazza del Popolo. You can visit Villa Borghese at rush hour in the city as a shelter from congestion. Prices for young people start from 2 euros, and for adults from 13 euros.

On the way back, you can take a walk towards the Fontana di Treve Historical centre full of terraces and shops. Take your comfortable shoes and explore every corner!
