What to visit in Rome in 1 day?

Rome is the kind of city that deserves time to be visited. With its incredible attractions, one day may seem not enough, but if you organize your time in a skillful way, it is possible to visit the most important landmarks of our beautiful Eternal City. Today we will know what to visit in Rome in one day.  So, in this post we bring you some good news: many tourist spots are close to subways stations, so you can move around in a very efficient way and reach all of them very fast! To learn more about it, read our post: How to use the subway in Rome?  Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

1) What to visit in Rome in 1 day? FIRST THINGS FIRST: LET’S BUY A MAP!

The first thing to do arriving in Rome is to buy a tourist map in any shop or “edicola”; that done, we can start our tour in Rome. It is also very important to know the means of transport in Rome, so be prepared to enjoy your time when you arrive in Rome. Read before you travel our special post about How to get around Rome using public transportation? If you are short of time it is always good to remember that planning each step is very important before leaving for your trip. Enjoy and buy everything in advance, such as: tickets for the tourist monuments, train tickets, etc. You will save time and money! ; )

2) What to visit in Rome in 1 day? IN THE MORNING

We can start the tour in the morning, visiting the Imperial Rome, passing by the Coliseum, Paladin, Roman Forum, Imperial Forum, Altar of the Homeland, Capitoline Hill., obviously with so little time available, it is not convenient to stop for lunch in a restaurant, I suggest you to eat a quick snack or a sandwich; you can also go for a slice of pizza in the various “pizzerie a taglio” around the city.

If you’re going to use the subway, you should get off first at COLOSSEO Subway Station, Line B. Read here How to use the subway in Rome? As I mentioned before, we will have a quick meal, obviously, because time is short and by eating in restaurants you would waste precious time!  Read this post to understand How to save on food in Italy!

3) What to visit in Rome in 1 day? IN THE AFTERNOON

We will follow the tour taking the subway and getting off at the BARBERINI stop, Line A. We will continue visiting Baroque Rome with the: Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Teatro Marcelo, Quirinale, Piazza Spagna  and at the end of the day we will take the subway and go to the Vatican, remember to get off at the OTTAVIANO stop, Line A; the Basilica is 10 minutes’ walk away, and you finally arrive to the St. Peter’s Basilica.

It’s not a very easy task, but I promise that if you follow my suggestions you will see in a few hours the best of this wonderful city. Rome is a city that not even those who live there can say they know everything, at every corner you can breathe history and at every angle you can find a monument that represents some important event of human history. But if we don’t have much time available, in a whole day or in 6 hours you can visit some monuments in a “superficial” way. But what to visit in Rome in one day? Stay with us and make the best of the shaped boot country!

4) What to visit in Rome in 1 day? IN THE EVENING

To complete the day, if you have an overnight stay in Rome you can choose a nice place for dinner, so your day will be quite complete. You can go to Trastevere to visit the neighborhood and have dinner in the bohemian atmosphere of Rome. It’s tiring, but is wonderful! Also read “What to do for the night in Rome?

Another suggestion to spend a day in Rome is…

You can also start the day by doing the opposite, going first to St. Peter’s Basilica and then taking the subway again and going to visit Imperial Rome and then Baroque Rome which is even more romantic at the end of the day! It is possible to do this tour in 5 or 6 hours, but I do not advise for families with small children or for people with locomotion difficulties. We advise you to take this tour with an English speaking guide and with a private driver. Read also Rome for Groups?

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

If you want to save a great option is the B&B, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices.

If you prefer a good hotel, I have three options that I really like, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices;)

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotels I suggest near Vatican City

An interesting area to stay and a little cheaper than the historic center is the Vatican area (Vatican Museums) which is very well connected with everything.

Hotel I suggest near Termini Station

For those who prefer to stay in neighborhoods that have good access to the rest of the city and at a better price, then you should choose accommodation in the surroundings of Termini Station (from where a dense network of public means of transport starts, serving both: the local people and tourists).

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
