I don't want to be dramatic, but Rome is one of the greatest cities in the world.
However, Rome can be a tough city to navigate as a tourist.
As someone who used to live in Italy — and has been lucky enough to visit Rome close to a dozen times — I thought I'd share my itinerary for a killer weekend in Rome.
But before you skip ahead, there are a few things you should know about this itinerary.
1. I've made this list for people who want to hit some of the iconic Roman must-sees, as well as try classic Roman cuisine.
2. I've kept the spending budget to approx. €50 per day — which doesn't include flights or accomodation, since they'll vary depending on the time of year you're travelling. However, I have included some helpful tips for where to stay.
3. I've tried to make sure each activity is within reasonable walking distance from the previous one.
