Rome is the capital and the largest city in Italy with 3 million residents. Its history is two and a half thousand years long and a lot of it is visible in its buildings making the city fascinating to visit.

1. Piazza di Spagna to Vaticano

A good way to start the day after a coffee at Piazza di Spagna is to climb the hill to the villa Borghese and its park. The view over Rome from this Belvedere is great. Then walk down to the Piazza del Popolo. From that wide open Piazza take via di Ripetta to Ponte Cavour then cross the river Tiber towards the Castel San Angelo. From there you will see Piazza San Pietro of the Vaticano. Visiting the Vaticano will take you a day but if the crowd is not too big you should tour inside San Pietro’s Basilica.

2. The charms of the Trastevere neighborhood

From the Vatican, walk around the Piazza San Pietro to the South on Via Paolo VI and take the viale delle Mura Aurelie, then cross over to the smaller Passeggiata di Gianicolo to finally enter the Trastevere neighbourhood from the top. Reach the via Lungaretta and walk South to the Ponte Palatino to cross the river.

3. The ancient Rome

From the river Tiber walk towards the Capitol and the ruins of the ancient Rome dominated by the Palatino hill and the Coliseo. Then return to the city center via the Pantheon and have dinner on the charming Piazza of Campo dei FIori or nearby.

Quite a walk but Rome is wonderful to walk in. Enjoy the day…
