Eating pizza is always one of the best things to do in Rome

Finish the evening with Gelato
Most nights in Rome finish with an after-dinner gelato and passeggiata – evening stroll – around the city streets. Make like a local and take a nightly wander round Trastevere or, better still, stay in the area at Hotel Santa Maria.
Go gaze at the Roman Forum and Palatine
Visit the Roman Forum and Palatine at the very heart of Rome. The ancient ruins may not resemble a mighty centre of power today, but they are still undeniably evocative, especially if you don’t have to queue, so pick up a Best of
Rome all-access pass.
Make time for the Vatican Museums
The Vatican may be the world’s smallest country, but it’s also the world’s largest museum complex. To see as much as possible book a small group tour. Or, if you’re determined to go it alone, don’t miss the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms.
Visit Basilica of San Clemente, the epitome of Rome
It’s often said that San Clemente epitomises Rome: an ancient temple, which sits under a slightly less ancient basilica and is topped by a faintly newer church. ιғ ʏouʀᴇ тᴇмᴘтᴇᴅ тo ԍo ᴇvᴇɴ ᴅᴇᴇᴘᴇʀ, ᴅιscovᴇʀ тнᴇ sᴀɴ cʟᴇмᴇɴтᴇ cᴀтᴀcoмʙs.
Head to Campo de’ Fiori, day or night
Head to Campo de’ Fiori in the morning and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Rome’s oldest street market. Switch it round and visit at night, when the Campo becomes the hub of Roman nightlife. Or stay at Casa Fiori nearby and do both.
