Called the Eternal City, Rome attracts travelers from across the entire world. They visit hoping to catch a glimpse of the city’s famous Roman Forum, Pantheon, Palatine Hill, Trevi Fountain, St Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Spanish Steps, and Colosseum. Many think these places are nothing more than ancient ruins, but they quickly discover how wrong they are!

How many days do you need in Rome?

An honest answer is that you might spend your entire life in Rome and still have new things to discover. However, travelers do not have unlimited time at their hands. Usually, people recommend either 3 days in Rome or 7 days. However, with smart planning, you can still experience the essentials of Rome within a single day.

I highly recommend this company. The car for 6 people was waiting for us even before the scheduled time. The drivers were super nice and the car ( minibus) clean and comfortable. Good price too and you can pay in cash or credit card if you order via website.
