What to visit in Rome in 2 days?

Rome is a city that not even those who live there, get to know everything. In every corner you can breathe history, and in every angle there is a monument that represents an important event. To visit Rome in the best way, I recommend three to four days, but if we don’t have all that time available, in two days you can visit the most important monuments “superficially”. Let’s learn what to visit in Rome in 2 days? 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!”

Introduction

The first step is to buy a tourist map of the city of Rome at any store or “edicola” or pick it up at your hotel, which is free. From there, read the map well to understand and follow the tour suggested in this post. What to visit near Rome? The best round trips from Rome.

1) What to visit in Rome in 2 days? FIRST DAY: IMPERIAL ROME AND BAROQUE ROME

In the morning we will get off on the “Colosseo” subway and start the day passing by Circus Massimo and Bocca della Veritá. We will continue the visit of Imperial Rome, visiting the the Coliseum, Paladin, Roman Forum, Imperial Forum, Altar of the Homeland, Capitoline Hill.

Stop for lunch at a good central restaurant (Click here and find out where to eat well in Rome?). I remember that Italy is famous for its food. If you have time, it is always worth choosing a good restaurant to enjoy one of the most delicious foods in the world. As we are short of time, I always suggest a snack for lunch.

We will continue our tour taking the first metro and getting off at the “Barberini” subway stop, we will continue visiting the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Teatro Marcelo, Quirinale, Piazza Spagna and Piazza del Popolo.

2) What to visit in Rome in 2 days? SECOND DAY: VATICAN ZONE

After being refilled, we will visit the Vatican area, visiting: Vatican Museum, St Peter’s Basilica, Castel Sant´ Angelo (“Castle of the Holy Angel”) and Trastevere. The Vatican is the seat of the Catholic Church, it consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome, capital of Italy. With approximately 44 hectares and a population of just over 800 inhabitants, it is the smallest country in the world.

In the morning we will get off on the “Ottaviano” metro and walk to the Vatican Museum. I recommend buying tickets in advance so you don’t have to face miles and miles of lines, we’ll visit the museum that has one of the most important art collections in the world and visit the famous Capella Sistina (Sistine Chapel) and the Stanze di Raffaello (“Rooms of Rafaello”). The museum’s art gallery offers a small but precious collection of works by Raffaello, Tizziano and Leonardo, take at least three or four hours to visit the museum with a bit of calm.

Piazza di San Pietro, St. Peter’s Basilica and Castel Sant´Angelo

It is worth it!! At the end of the tour, we will continue the visit, visiting Piazza di San Pietro (St Peter’s Square) and the majestic St Peter’s Basilica, the goal of pilgrims from all over the world, it is the largest basilica in the world. The basilica will literally amaze you! We will continue the visit passing by Castel Sant´Angelo (“Castle of the Holy Angel”), an imposing fortress built in 139 AD to be the mausoleum of Emperor Hadrian, but that over the centuries has been used for other reasons, such as a refuge for the popes during political revolts .

Trastevere

Finally on that wonderful day, I recommend dining in the famous Transtevere district, one of the oldest and most picturesque neighborhoods in Rome. Find out more about Trastevere by clicking here!

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.

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!

Hotel I suggest near Termini Station

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.
