If you are planning a trip to Rome, here is a breif outline of the top top things to see whilst your there

Transcript

  • Earlier this year I went to Rome where I took a million photos of everywhere I went. I was lucky enough to have friends over there so it was like have my very own person tour of places. I think in a place like that where people will visit for only a few days you need to know where the best places to go are and when, so here is a brief tour for people who are maybe short on time and can only go to a few places.

    It is a very complicated place with lots of little alleyways and you will be walking and stumble upon something amazing so I want to give visitors an easy guide to 10 things to see in Rome.

    10 Things To See In Rome

    Wednesday, 23 November 2011

  • ArchitectureOne of the obvious

    things you will come across in Rome are

    Roman ruins. Despite being a massive tourist

    attraction, they have caused chaos around

    the city as they do restrict building plans.

    However the architecture you do

    come across just stops you in your tracks as

    you pear through archways and up at Glass Domes of the

    Cathedrals.

  • ColosseumThe biggest, most well know

    Amphitheatre to date, the Colosseum is definitely not over

    rated. Head there just before sunset to miss the big crowds and

    to get some great photo opportunities. Its a lovely walk up to it and its almost surreal how big

    it really is.

  • Ponte Milvio BridgePonte Milvio is the oldest bridge in Rome originally dating back to 206 BC. It is known for being covered in padlocks, left on the bridge by couples declaring their love.To make this scene better why not try Granita, a fruity iced snack from one of the local food stands.

  • Trevi Fountain

    Stunned by where they hide this magnificent monument, its one of

    the highlights of Rome. This is where the biggest crowds are in my opinion. It is said that around 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day as legend has it, you will return to Rome

    if you toss in a coin. So take some shrapnel.

    hold your gaze on some of the the most beautiful pieces of art. From traditional and

    religious drawings to spray painted landscapes. Bag yourself an original masterpiece.

    unlikely places. Down alleyways, amongst stalls and behind shops.

    well as tasting some traditional homemade recipes. from your

    neighbours.

  • Pantheon

    This dark mysterious building is a temple to all Gods of Ancient Rome

    and it is the largest reinforced concrete dome. Some say it holds resemblance

    of the dome to the heavens. The Italian artist Raphael was buried here along with several other important

    Italian figures. It is now a very popular tourist spot because of its

    overwhelming structure and interiors but remains an active church which has

    been known to host many weddings.

  • Parks

    If youre looking for a place to relax and chill with friends, make up a picnic with homemade humous, pittas, a pasta salad, some cold pizza and maybe a dark chocolate tiramisu washed down with some cloudy lemonade and take a

    stroll to a nearby park.

  • Spanish Steps

    Between the Piazza di Spagna at the base, and Piazza Trinit dei Montiis is the widest

    staircase in Europe know as the Spanish Steps. The originally named Trinit dei Monti has been restored many times and eating and

    drinking on the steps is now forbidden in order to keep the steps clean.
