How many days do you need to visit Rome? Maybe a whole month! Mmm too much for our savings! Maybe some writer in the nineteenth century could afford it (remember the travels of Lord Byron or Goethe?), maybe some noble during the Dolce Vita could live in a hotel in Via Veneto. Mmmm, no! We have to go back home in a few days (and Via Veneto is very expensive!!!!). In this article, I will try to suggest you a "4 days in Rome" itinerary. Yes, you're right, you can't visit everything in 4 days, but you will have to be content with "the best of Rome". OK Let's Go.
Day 0 - if you arrive in the morning, spend the afternoon in the main town: you can enjoy the magical atmosphere of Rome near Pantheon
Day 1 - Ancient Rome
Rome is known around the world for its history, for the Empire, Julius Caesar and Colosseum. If you travel to Rome from overseas you have to start with the imperial monuments. I do not accept objections! Take the subway and get off at Colosseo, Colosseum is your first "Best in Rome" step. Oh, I forgot, take a picture with the Centurions, but watch your wallet, the area is a bit dangerous for bag snatching. Visit the Colosseum, admire the Arch of Constantine and start your walk through the Roman Forum, it will be an amazing experience! At the end of the Roman Forum, have a fast lunch and visit the Capitoline Hill (it is the seat of the municipality of Rome), the equestrian monument to Marcaurelio and the Capitoline Museum. Mmmm, the visit to the museum takes several hours... What time is it? Maybe it's time to visit the Bocca della Verit�. Sorry you have to choose!
