The Italian capital is among the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, since Rome is a place full of historical sites, attractions, fountains and beautiful squares, museums and fantastic restaurants and cafes. If you already know the dates of your trip and have booked your Rome apartmentfor the period of your stay, the next thing to do is to make a plan which sites to visit. Such a plan is very important when you have only limited time in the city, let’s say three days. The city of Rome is huge, but its historic center is rather small and thus you can do your sightseeing alone, without using the public transport. Now if you happen to have three full days in Rome, here is a list of the sites that you should not miss.
May be the first area to cover when visiting Rome is the Ancient Rome zone, which includes the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill, as well as the Roman Forum. The Palatine Hill, where used to live the emperors of Rome, is famous with the museum and the excavations. Opposite it is the Colloseum, which is a large amphitheater, once a venue of wild animal fights and gladiator fights. Not far from here is the Roman Forum, which is a large complex of basilicas, ruined temples, and arches. This actually was the social center of the Ancient Rome. The day will be great, if you also visit the marvelous Trevi fountain and treat yourself with a tasty ice cream known here as gelato while watching the breathtaking fountain. Once you had a rest, you can also check the Pantheon, which happens to be the best preserbed building of the ancient Rome, which has an interesting dome and is free to enter.

On your second day in Rome, you can check the museums on the Capitoline Hill, the area of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto and also some of the night clubs. For example, you can start at Campo dei Fiori area, which is very lively in the mornings and then you can go across Tiber River to spend some time in Trastevere district. Then if you go back to the other side, you can reach the Jewish Ghetto and even try some traditional Jewish cuisine there. Then the rest of the day you can spend visiting the Capitoline Hill Museums, starting from Piazza Venezia and the monument of Vittorio Emanuele. This piazza was designed by Michelangelo, while the museums are among the oldest in the world. Here are set Palazzo Nuovo and Palazzo dei Conservatori.
On the last, third day, one could go to the Rome Catacombs and the Ancient Appian Way. Another good idea is to visit Piazza Navona with the Bernini fountains there and the church on the other side. Interesting to check are also the Spanish Steps and the area is great for shopping too, but only if you have a lot of money, as here are placed some very elegant boutiques.
