Ciao Bella: 24 Hours in Rome
So you've only got 24 hours in one of the most historic & beautiful cities in the world -
Maximize every minute with my list of Rome must-do's:
VISIT THE COLOSSEUM. Make this one of your first stops as it can get pretty crowded. Once inside, enjoy experiencing one of the world's seven wonders.
MAKE A WISH AT THE TREVI FOUNTAIN. Experience all the feels with your very own Lizzie McGuire moment. Pure magic.
CLIMB THE SPANISH STEPS. Once you've made your way to the top, take in the scenic view of the city below!
GRAB LUNCH OR APERITIVO AT THE PANTHEON. Whether you stop for pizza or enjoy a Roman happy hour, do so in the neighborhood of the Pantheon. Take in all the sites and sounds of this gorgeous architectural landmark.
INDULGE IN A CONE OF ITALY'S FAMOUS GELATO. After your meal, walk a few blocks from the Pantheon to Giolitti for a scoop of their world-famous Italiano ice cream.
EXPLORE CENTRO STORICO. These famous cobblestone streets are a must! Lined with unique boutiques, century-old churches, and cute cafes: shop & eat as the Romans do!
BROWSE THE CAMPO DE' FIORI MERCATO. Fresh fruit & vegetables galore! Sample cheese & olive oils from local artisans.
SNAP A PIC AT THE SECRET KEYHOLE. Located in Aventino, this Instagram-worthy spot offers a perfect view of St. Peter's Basilica from a far. The keyhole famously boarders the compound of the Knights of Malta.
EAT & DRINK AS THE ROMANS DO. Finish your day off by enjoying a plate of homemade pasta and a bottle of Italian wine. My best recommendation is none at all - wander the streets & dine wherever the aroma of food leads you!
CATCH THE SUNSET OVER ST. PETER'S BASILICA. YES! I was lucky enough to witness the golden hues on the horizon with the dome of St. Peter's front and center.
Ciao, Bella & enjoy your day in Rome!
