Piazza Campo de' Fiori
The home to one of Rome’s more popular produce markets.

Massive square where you can find the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Massive city square and home to the oldest obelisk in Rome.
Piazza di Spagna
The famous hill from the 18th century at the foot of the Spanish Steps.
Hard to believe this was originally commissioned to be a mausoleum but has been a museum since 1925.
Beautiful neighborhood that some consider a reflection of true life in Rome.
Right next to the Colosseum where most tours of the Colosseum will likely end.

Beautiful sculptures, paintings, and mosaics can be found in this museum.
You must book in advance to see this or else you will never get in.
The hope of one of Michelangelo’s most famous paintings from the 16 century.
Only 3 hours from Rome by train or 8 hours by bus.

Probably best to take a flight there since it’s only 1 hour away by plane but 6.5 hours away by train.
Only 1 hour and 15 minutes away from Rome by train.
Via del Pantheon
One of the best preserved buildings of ancient Romans, this former Pagan temple is now a Christian church.
Relatively steep steps coming down Trinita dei Monti church that reminds me a tad bit of the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
Beautiful square that is filled with Christmas markets and concerts in the winter.
A large forum filled with ruins of ancient Roman buildings.
The famous fountain that was built in the 18th century. Unfortunately when I visited, it was completely covered for renovations.
