After living two amazing years in Rome, these are the things I would do if I had to stay there again for just one day.

  • Explore locations featured in this Trip List: Rome

  • 1. Start the day with fresh fruits and flowers at Campo de' Fiori
    Campo de' Fiori, Rome, Lazio

    My favourite place in Rome, between piazza Navona and the villa Farnese. The market here is so picturesque. Feel the village atmosphere while drinking an espresso at one of the several terraces.

  • 2. Foro Romano
    Palatine Hill, Rome, Lazio

    Walk in the steps of Julius Ceaser and imagine the antique life in the roman forum. It's just incredible!

  • 3. La Bocca della verità
    Bocca della Verita, Rome, Lazio

    If you've seen Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn's laughters in Roman holiday you will certainly want to put your hand in the mouth too.

  • 4. Baffetto: the best pizza in town

    Bafetto is an institution in Rome. A very casual typically roman place with excellent pizza for very little money.

  • 5. Trastevere
    Trastevere, Rome, Lazio

    Hang around in the lively and lovely streets of this typical district. Visit the beautiful church Santa Maria In Trastevere and have a café at San Calisto.

  • 6. San Pietro basilica
    San Pietro in Vincoli, Rome, Lazio

    Don't pay attention to the hordes of tourists, admire the beautiful Pietà -among other masterpieces - by Michelangelo, and the huge church itself.

  • 7. Villa Borghese
    Villa Borghese, Rome, Lazio

    The park is beautiful and the museum, specially the Bernini gallery, inside the historic house is absolutly stunning.

  • 8. Caffé della pace
    Bar and Caffe della Pace, Rome, Lazio

    Before dinner, have a Campari with olives in this beautiful bar, one of the oldest in Rome, at two steps from piazza Navona.

  • 9. Gusto

    This restaurant is one of the hippest in town. It is decorated in a very modern style, the food is simple and excellent, the wine and cheese selections are great.
