I'm visiting Rome with a few friends at the end of February. Can anyone suggest top things to do? There seems to be a lot of choice in Rome! I absolutely love history and would like to see the top places of interest or possible day trips.
I'm celebrating my 30th so a good thing to do on the day would also be helpful!
Also, I'm staying near(ish) Termini station. Can anyone suggest good (and reasonable) places to eat and drink?
Any other advice that you think might be useful would also be helpful. There's a few of us and i'm in charge!
Thanks for your help,
There's tons to see in Rome - the hard part is picking! There's the Colesseum, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steph, Trevi Fountain, the Vatican and the Vatican museums, plus just walking around to take in the architecture, the people, the shops, and the gelatto! You must, must, must sample gelatto. And Mozzarella di Buffala. Oh, and the coffee.
As for restaurants, we also stayed near the Termini but usually ate somewhere else. Around the Termini isn't the nicest of areas, although there's a decent coffee shop or two. We ate down around the bottom of the Spanish steps or else in the pedestrian alley near the Pantheon. It's beautiful to walk around Rome, so the trip back to the Termini was a good way to walk off the pasta.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
More worthless advice from,
Are you staying in a Hostel?
If you like to go out on pub crawls and party all nite, then go on the Romeingtours pub crawl through Yellow hostel, just four blocks from Termini. Its a great night out and the only way to celebrate a birthday. plus its now open bar all nite long!!!!
Capitol Hill museum is a must if you like history.
Pantheon is a also a must see as well as the Colloseum. you must see it and the spanish steps, trevi fountain at night as well, amazing atmosphere.
There is good shopping on Nazionale street just around the corner from Termini, its one of the popular streets that leads to the Colloseum area.
