Travelling to Rome is a bucket list experience in its own right. However, once there, there’s a list of things you definitely can’t miss. Check out these 5 unmissable experiences in Rome we’ve handpicked just for you!
- Toss a Coin in Fontana di Trevi
No matter how cliché it may sound, you can’t possibly visit Rome without an essential stop to toss a coin at Fontana di Trevi, this beyond words beautiful fountain in the heart of the city. Legend has it that tossing a coin over your left shoulder is enough to guarantee your return to the Eternal City in the future. True or not, we certainly can’t risk not going back to the wonder that is Rome, can we?
- Ride a Vespa Through Rome’s Streets
There’s no better way to see Rome than riding an original Vespa, the iconic scooter that has become a true symbol of Italy over the years. For a unique experience without having to worry about driving, book a vespa ride with a local and live the Roman Holiday of your dreams.
- Eat Gelato
Homemade gelato in Italy tastes nothing like the ice-cream we know and eat in the rest of the world. There are dozens of exquisite gelato shops scattered across Rome, among which Gelateria dei Gracchi and Il Gelato di San Crispino, two of the best gelaterias in the city. Once you’ve had your fair share of gelato in Rome, how about making some yourselves too? Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it?
- Step Inside The Pantheon
The Pantheon is among the most spectacular monuments in Rome. Stepping inside this magnificent construction is free of charge. Yet its grandeur will leave you speechless. Make sure you visit at noon so that you don’t miss the bright light that enters from the hole on the ceiling and illuminates the Pantheon in a magical way.
