Three Days Itinerary in Rome, Italy

Travel Tip: You may want to get a Roma Pass for 36 euros. The advantages of having a Roma Pass include free entry to two museums or archaeological sites of your choice and free use of the city’s public transport network. You will also be given a Roma Map, a Roma Pass Guide and Roma รจ, the card with the App to download the best city. The card is valid for three days and is activated upon the first entry to any museum or archeological sites and/or at the time of first journey on public transport. I bought my Roma Pass online and collected it at PIT Nazionale , Via Nazionale.

Day 1
  1. Get up early to see the grandiose church of St. Peter’s Basilica. It opens at 7:00 am. Be amazed by the sights inside which include Michelangelo’s Pieta and the tour of the Pope’s tombs.
  2. Climb up the basilica’s dome to see the panoramic view of the city.
  3. Walk around St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican walls to get to the entrance of the Vatican Museums. It opens at 9:00 am. You may buy your ticket online for the Vatican and Sistine Chapel tours.
