Chasing the most Instagrammable places in Rome
I remember that famous quote which says: “What happens in Rome, stays in Rome”…but it would be such a pity to keep all this travel tips and stories just for myself.
Rome is a true gem in every single way…from history to nowadays, from pizza to gelato, from party to romance, from war to love… There’s no single soul which cannot be satisfied with what Rome has to offer to those who cross its borders.
Since the first day I have arrived, I couldn’t call myself a tourist anymore. After a few hours Rome feels like home. A place where you can feel the positive vibes and the smell of delicious food everywhere. That magical place where you can find a fantastic ice-cream from 5 to 5 meters. That city with food for soul, with music and sculptures and history and fantasy.
I’m a beauty seeker, more than a museum addict. Don’t get me wrong, I love to visit some museum which I feel close to my heart, but I prefer to discover every single secret street of a city when I travel, especially when I have only a few days to discover everything.
So here they come, all my discoveries…cliches or not, here are my favorite spots in Rome which took me 4 full days to discover and more than 70 walked km.
So here’s what I saw during the 4 days I’ve spent in Rome:
– Day 1 –
- Nearby house from our apartment – we have rented an apartment exactly in front of the Vatican Museum’s entrance.
- Galleria Alberto Sordi – Galleria Alberto Sordi, until 2003 Galleria Colonna, is a shopping arcade in Rome named after the actor Alberto Sordi.
- Piazza del Popolo – a large urban square in Rome. The name in modern Italian literally means “People’s Square”, but historically it derives from the poplars after which the church of Santa Maria del Popolo, in the northeast corner of the piazza, takes its name.
- First delicious gelato
- Lovely sunset on the bridge with the Castel Sant’Angelo on the background – The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant’Angelo, is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy.
- While searching for some food we found this cool vintage truck… so fancy!
-Day 2 –
- The one and only Fontana Di Trevi – we woke up at 6:30 o’clock just to make sure that it won’t be too crowded so that we can take the photos in silence…Guess what? It was full of people even if we have arrived at 8 a.m. … Still, BREATHTAKING!
- The Spanish Steps are a set of steps in Rome, Italy, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the Trinità dei Monti church at the top.
- Time for a snack while visiting Villa Borghese, a landscape garden in the naturalistic English manner in Rome, containing a number of buildings, museums and attractions. It is the third largest public park in Rome after the ones of the Villa Doria Pamphili and Villa Ada.
- Here’s the view of Piazza del Popolo from the beautiful gardens of Villa Borghese. Such a fantastic panorama.

– Day 3 –
- Architectural details I loved…
- The Vatican Museum and its famous Bramante Staircase – Bramante Staircase is the name given to two staircases in the Vatican Museums in the Vatican City State: the original stair, built in 1505, and a modern equivalent from 1932. So beautiful! Definitely a #MUSTsee
- The Roman Forum seen from above – The Roman Forum, also known by its Latin name Forum Romanum, is a rectangular forum surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome.
Adress: Via della Salara Vecchia, 5/6, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
- The one and only Colosseum – another breathtaking treasure of Rome. Let’s not forget that this impressive building was used to host gladiatorial shows as well as a variety of other events. The shows, called munera, were always given by private individuals rather than the state. They had a strong religious element but were also demonstrations of power and family prestige, and were immensely popular with the population.

– Day 4 –
- Roman details – matching with the background
- Another architectural gem is Altare della Patria – also known as the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (“National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II”) or Il Vittoriano, is a monument built in honor of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy, located in Rome, Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill.
The eclectic structure was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi in 1885.
- This time at sunset next to my love – Fontana di Trevi
- Another must see area of Rome – The Aventine Hill
Here you can see the St. Peter’s Basilica from the Vatican City
…and some lovely details which caught my attention while discovering the ancient streets of Rome.
