Many of Rome’s little churches hold beautiful treasures — and many are free to visit. And many of other things special, meaningful and for free. Budget your vacation ideas in Rome:
Visit the Colosseum
Arguably Rome’s most famous landmark, the Colosseum is usually the first architectural landmark that comes to mind when you think of the Eternal City. Visiting the Colosseum is a must on your next trip to Rome; the largest amphitheater in the Roman Empire has played a huge role in much of Rome’s history since its beginnings in the first century.
Waiting in line is the last thing you’ll want to do while in Rome, and definitely not recommended on this list. If you want to skip past the long lines of the 4 million people that visit the Colosseum annually, you can buy multi-passes to the city’s best landmarks of historic importance, including the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, and bypass the lines altogether.
Watch the Sun Set at Janiculum Hill
Rome may be the city of seven hills, but the best place to climb is Janiculum Hill, also known as Gianicolo. The hill offers the highest vantage point in the city, and the best panoramic views of Rome’s beautiful city landscape. All of Rome’s most beautiful architectural landmarks will be on display, and the hill becomes a gather spot around sunset. If you visit during the middle of the day, you can hear the cannons that fire blanks at noon every day.
