Things To Do: Rome
Like previously alluded too there are hundreds of different things to do in Rome, so we can't possibly detail them all! That being said, here are some of our favourites:
Colosseum: The Colosseum is a popular tourist attraction in Rome, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre it's an oval amphitheatre built entirely of concrete and sand, the largest one ever built. It was used to hold spectators for gladiator fights and other public spectacles and it could hold up to 80,000 spectators to put that in capacity that's more than A.S Roma's current stadium, and it was built 100's of years ago! Maybe they should move...
Vatican Museum: This isn't strictly in Rome, it's in the Vatican City. It's a museum which boasts the immense collection of sculptures and masterpieces of Pope's throughout the years, an important part of Christian history. The Sistine Chapel is also on the visitors route through the Museum, so two birds, one stone.
St. Peter's Basilica: This famous place of pilgrimage is where the Pope presides. Based in the heart of the Vatican this beautiful piece of Architecture is the largest church in the world. Catholic or not, it's definitely one of the places you should have on your bucket list to visit!
Driving Tips In Rome
If you are planning on driving in Rome, then make sure you are prepared. We've got together some handy driving tips for you to make use of!
A GPS Is Advised: We aren't trying to sell you an extra here! Bring your own GPS if you can, or look into buying one at a local shop as it may be cheaper than renting. It is however advised that you should use a GPS as Italy has a lot of small unmarked roads and one way streets, especially around Rome so to avoid turning the wrong way down a road, a sat nav is a good call.
Watch Out For ZTL: Across Italy there are ZTL areas, Zona Traffico Limitato, which basically means limited traffic. You are not legally allowed to drive there unless you have a special permit to do so.
Watch Where You Park: Parking around Rome can be a bit of a nightmare, with the tiny old streets it can be really tight to find a parking spot so you need to really hone your parking skills prior to arrival. Also, majority of the areas are on parking meters, so make sure you pay to avoid a fine!
