There is so much to discover in Rome that a short trip can only be a small introduction to the eternal city. If you want to get a little deeper into the many sights and cultural highlights, you should plan at least a week. And that’s not enough.
Historically, there are plenty of excavations and monuments from antiquity in Rome and the surrounding area. In addition, there are the many works of art from the Renaissance period, which can be found both outdoors and in museums. You can spend a whole day in the Vatican Museums without getting bored.
In addition, there is the history of the popes in Rome. In addition to St. Peter’s Basilica, the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano and the Holy Staircase are a “must have seen.”
If you drive only a little out of the city, you will find the Via Appia Antica, the aqueducts and the ancient city of Ostia. Also beautiful are excursions to Adrian’s Villa and Villa d ‘Este in Tivoli, as well as to the Roman Campagna, the Alban hills, and Castel Gandolfo.
Take plenty of time for your city trip to Rome and enjoy the countless opportunities to get to know Rome in your own pace. Then take trips to Ostia Antica, Tivoli and the Castelli Romani.
