I only have 2 days in Rome

by kikkondr

How may I maximize my two days in Rome? Would two days be really enough?

Re: I only have 2 days in Rome

by leics

No.

Two weeks is not enough.

But central rome is very walkable, and has an excellent public transport system.

Decide on what you absolutely must see, get a streetmap, make early starts (and get to bed early!) and walk or hop on the bus or tram or the Metro. Get 24 or 48 hour tickets which wil cover all forms of transport and save you having to find a ticket-seller/machine every time.

I'd take one day to see the Forum/Palatine/Colosseum area, then San Clemente, Santa Maria Maggiore and on to San Giovanni in Laterano.

Then take the other day to see St Peters' Basilica, the Vatican museums if you want to (book online to avoid the queues), take a wander round Trastevere, then back across the river to see the Pantheon, the temples at Largo Argentina, the Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain.

You might wish to look at the following web site: www.romapass.it/english/cosa.html. The Romapass costs 20 Euros. It includes free transport on most of the local transport system, entitles you to 2 free venue admittance, and offers discounts on many others. The transport site for Rome is: www.atac.roma.it. For Rome City Tours by bus: www.trambusopen.com. For online tickets: www.tickitaly.com & for ticket, exhibit, and event information: www.pierreci.it. Gary

Take a look at the City's tourism website - http://www.romaturismo.com/v2/romain48ore/en/romain4896ore.html
Here they suggest a sample 48 hour tour of Rome...I see it's heavily weighted towards the ancient city...OK with me, but may not be to everyone's taste...

I certainly agree that the only real way to maximize your two days is to get a time machine and stay longer ;-)

Re: I only have 2 days in Rome

What amount of time is long enough for just about any European City? They are all so fabulous and full to the brim of things to see and do. Two days certainly is not enough for any of them, Rome in particular, but you have to work with what time you have and make the most of it. I really think that the two day itinerary that J (leics) has given you above, is the very best you will do with the precious time you have. What's more if you do everything that J has suggested, I will venture to say that you will really be able to say that you had a good look at Rome. Enjoy your two days now, anything you miss, can be seen next time. Just remember to throw that coin into the Trevi Fountain to make sure that you will go back. And J, you forgot to mention the gelati!! Certainly not to be missed, but you can easily slurp away whilst you are walking from one place to the next. Just be sure to buy it in a shop rather than from a wagon on the street, the price difference between the two is astounding! Have a great time!

Re: I only have 2 days in Rome

by leics

I just took the gelati-slurping as a given.........surely one cannot wander around Rome without a two-scoop gelato every couple of hours? :-))

I should say not!

Travel Tips for Rome

Domus Aurea

by pili

After the fire in 64 ac, Nerón began to built the Domus Area. His intention was transform a big part of the urban centre in a grandiose villa. The palace that had built there was destroyed by his sucessor, but in this days it´s a beautiful area, and from there you can see nice wies of the Colisseum.-

Luego del gran incendio del año 64 d.c. Nerón se dedicó a la realización de la Domus Area, que transformaba gran parte del centro urbano en una villa grandiosa. Del palacio que se construyó queda muy poco - todo fue destruido posteriormente por sus sucesores -, pero actualmente es una muy bella zona desde donde se pueden apreciar hermosas vistas del Coliseo.-

San Giovanni in Laterano

by Laura_Mexico

This is the beautiful church of San Giovanni in Laterano, which is located towards the south of the town (not very close to the rest of Rome's famous sites) and therefore isn't as visited as other churches/monuments. Yes, I know Rome must have like a million churches, but this one is really impressive due to its size and the inside is magnificent as well...

What about... WINE?

by janchan about Al Vino Al Vino !!

A very nice way to pass some hours with friends... is going to this wine-bar (enoteca)...
Very friendly atmosphere... and a huge choice of wines, liquors and typical italian spirits...

You can also have things to eat... like mixed salami and cheese... or handmade "parmigiana di melanzane" !!! Whatever you like...

the painted cavern

by rosymole about ??

I found a lovely little place hidden in one of the many side streets coming off the Trevi Fountain area - yes i did spend a lot of time around there.
It had a very dark doorway but throught you could see an arched ceiling and wooden tables all shrouded in a mixture of candle light and cigarette smoke.
It was very cool inside despite the kitchen being pretty much part of the same room, seperated only by a rather crumbly brick wall.
The walls and ceiling were covered by the most incredible mural - all drawn in pastel and chalk depicting a variety of faces and scenes from Italian life and history - it gave it really different atmosphere and made you feel quite separate from bussle and heta from outside. As it was lunch time pizza seemed the sensible option, which was very good - affordable although a little too salty with the quattro formagio option.
Best bet would be the basic cheese, tomato and basil - simple but quite yummy!

Managing St. Peter's and Vatican Museum

by dariogquin

I can't add anymore praises to what people have already said about this place. But I can add a tip on avoiding long lines. Try to visit the museum first, then climb the dome (if you are planning to), then visit the basilica last. Get in line at least 30 minutes before the museum opens. We were there around this time and the line was already one block long. Your last stop in the museum is the Sistine Chapel. There's a small exit to the very far right corner (with your back to the Last Judgment). Note that if you borrow an audio guide, you'll have to go back to the entrance to return it. From the Sistine Chapel exit, this leads out to the line for the dome and the popes tombs. This will also lead you directly to the basilica. If you leave the premises, say for lunch, then come back for the basilica in the afternoon, you'll have to fall in line again as they now have metal detectors for the basilica itself. I say we spent about 3-5 hours on the whole visit.
