#AAAtravelselfies: See Yourself in Rome

by admin

The best way to experience the city of Rome is to go on a walk. You’ll be amazed at how a casual stroll outside feels as if you’re walking through an outdoor museum. Turn the corner and see a famous arch or ruins from antiquity, or walk along bridges like the Ponte Sisto and see views of magnificent structures like St. Peter’s Basilica.
 
As you’re striding along, there are a few places we recommend popping in. One of those is Villa Borghese, a gorgeous 17th Century villa displaying antiquities, renaissance and baroque art throughout 20 rooms. Another stop is the Giorgio de Chirico House Museum, where you’ll see the modern artist’s attic studio in his two-level apartment with great views of the city and many of his artworks. Continue the artistic and historical journey at the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Afterwards, pick up some delicious gelato at Old Bridge. Trust us, you’ll want gelato more than once on your trip, so also try the famous Giolitti.
 
St. Peter’s Basilica is another must-see. The outside architecture is jaw dropping, and when you enter, the sights don’t disappoint. One of the first pieces you’ll see is Bernini’s Pieta. If you’re hoping to see the Pope, the best time to catch him is on Sunday at noon in St. Peter’s Square as he speaks from his window.
 
For more casual activities, try upscale shopping in Via Condotti or less expensive on Via del Governo Vecchio. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, have lunch in Campo de Fiori where there are cafes and daily food markets. For dinner, try traditional Italian foods at Da Enzo and Fariné.
