Occasionally there is any city that gets us in the head and we have a sudden urge to visit. For me, now that city is Rome. Although I am ashamed to admit, Milan and Genova's suburbs are the only places I have visited in Italy, and lately people do not stop talking about Rome, so I do not want to be less and since I have started to organize a weekend getaway to the Italian capital.


First Day

Following the recommendations of two specialized blogs in Rome, disfrutaroma.com and audioguiaroma.com, first thing you should is visiting the Vatican (preferably before 9 Morning). After entering the St. Peter's Basilica and climb to the dome, should visit the Vatican Museums, but only to see the Sistine Chapel of Michelangelo. Then, quick visit to Castle Sant’ Angelo (probably just out), Piazza Navona y pantheon, Piazza di Spagna Piazza del Popolo y.


Second day

Start the day with nothing better to go to the very famous Coliseo y Foro Romano, and then climb the Palatine Hill. The combined ticket costs 12 euros. A must stop is the Square Campidogglio, where the famous statue of Romulus and Remus (after living three years in Segovia and see every day the copy next to the Aqueduct, makes me especially excited to see the original statue). To end the day, visit Santa Maria Maggiore, St. Mary of the Angels and the Fontana di Trevi.


Transport and Accommodation

In my case, flight from London to Rome costs about 70 pounds roundtrip Fuimucino with Ryanair at the airport. From the airport there are buses from the Terminal 3 every hour 4 euros to Rome Termini.

In the center you can find hostels and bed and breakfast for some 50 euros a night, but if you want a hotel for two or three stars prepared to pay at least 100 euros a night. Another option for your Roman holiday is to rent an apartment, increasingly popular option and can go even cheaper than a hotel.

And to enjoy Italy…

You can not visit an Italian city without tasting its cuisine. The best places to eat in Rome as Tripadvisor I am pinsere Rome, Gelateria Valentino y Ghiottoni, definitely try to visit.

And that's all for now, and I'll tell you when I go and if I make any changes. While, and especially if you have visited Rome, appreciate any advice you can give me idea or leaving your comment.
