Delicious food? Wonderful people? Stunning nature? We've found all of this during our first two-weeks trip to Italy. It was pretty difficult to choose between the cities and places to visit, because we wanted to both relax and to see all the sightseeing which is Italy popular for, to try all the great food they serve and to see these wonderful and friendly people.



  • General Information

    It would've been a pity not to visit Roma in the first trip to Italy, so we did it! Some can say that four days is very few days, but we've spend them wisely, visited most of the "must go" places and had several beautiful dinners afterwards.


    Arnobio Vatican Suites

    Wonderful place with a super-friendly and helpful host. It's a bit out of the city-center, so you probably would need to use bus. However, not too far from the Vatican.

    Activities and Sights


      A "must to go" place in Roma. We've bought tickets beforehand using: and also visited Roman Forum.

      Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna
      Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna

      It was too crowded during the day. I'd suggest going there in the early morning.

      Trevi Fountain

      Too crowded during the day. Come here in the morning. The fountain itself is marvelous!

      Vatican Museum
      Vatican Museum

      An another must-to-go place. It's impossible to write about this place, you have to see it yourself. Going there another time, I would prefer night excursion, because it's very crowded during the day. Make sure to buy tickets in advance, we've used for that..

      Foro Romano
