Europe is filled with interesting and exciting places to visit and many of these could make a great holiday. Among these European destinations however, there are some top favorites and Rome in Europe is certainly one of them, filled as it is with history and famous landmarks.
If you decide to visit Rome in Europe then you will likely be interested in seeing some of said landmarks and these are likely to include the coliseum, the Roman forum, the Vatican city and many more. These are all very worth seeing and it is highly recommended that you do tick most of them off if you do go to visit. Some tips are to try and visit some of the sites in one go – such as the Trevi fountain and some of the famous plazas. Get a map and plot a route that allows you to walk through the city visiting several in one go – many of the sites such as the Pantheon do not need more than a few hours to enjoy and will be very near to some of the other landmarks. A great experience that many people miss in Rome in Europe is to visit the Vatican museum at night – this is a fascinating museum anyway, but at night it has a romantic glow about it as does St Peter’s square which has a very different aura when it’s less busy.
But there is much more to do in Rome in Europe other than just historical sites. The simple fact that you’re in Italy means that there is plenty of great food to try as well as good shopping and warm weather. Just exploring Rome in Europe and heading into small restaurants and looking at the shops and architecture is enough to have a great day out. When exploring the area though make sure to use the Metro system which is a cheap and very useful underground service that can drop you right by all of the best locations. While exploring make sure also to visit the Ice Club de Roma which is a club that is made entirely of ice – all the way down to the glasses.
Other tips are of course to take plenty of Euros (the currency of Rome in Europe) and to remember that you are visiting a busy capital city where you will encounter queues and jams and where you will sometimes encounter frustrated commuters. The crowdedness though is only a symptom of what a great place to visit Rome in Europe is, so if you prepare well you are sure to have an amazing time.
