Rome is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world, with a myriad of attractions.
Where to start………
The aim of Sightseeing in Rome is as simple as the title suggests : What to see in Rome…. places to see in Rome…. things to see and do in Rome….. call it what you will, these are the things I suggest are the best and most interesting in Rome.
You dont need to be a history major to appreciate Rome, the attractions themselves and a little background reading before, or during, your visit to Rome will see you through.
If you are preparing for a vacation to Rome, my recommendation is to read through the various pages here. Along the way, make notes of what interests you. If you have any questions, email me and I will be happy to make suggestions.
Digest the information here….
Then chose a travel guidebook of your choice……
Remember, every one is different, if you like my sense of humor and the way I describe things, perhaps these attractions are the ones for you. If not, well, once again, everyone is different
Sit down with a coffee and read the guide…. again, make notes! If it becomes a “chore” to read the guidebook, then you know you have had enough … Sightseeing in Rome should be an adventure
Having an understanding of where you are going and what you are about to see makes a vacation so much more enjoyable. This is especially the case with Rome, as there is 2000 plus years of history, art & culture and attractions packed into a very small area. It can be overwhelming if you are not a little prepared.
I plan to post legends, stories and factual information on the site on a regular basis, so come back regularly to see what is new
One last thing … don’t forget to pack that guidebook in your carry on luggage…it most certainly will come in handy when find yourself in Rome!
