I decided to share tips on how to visit Rome in a day: a tour of the historical centre for first-timers. This is my most popular tour of Rome’s centre, as it touches all of those romantic spots and sights of Rome you’ve seen in the postcards! I was born and grew up in Rome, and I often bring travelers with me along this itinerary, as an accredited tour leader. If you’d love to know more about the tours and services I offer, do get in touch! If you have only a day to spend in Rome, keep in mind that one day is enough to fill up your eyes and your heart with awe and surprises, but it could also become quite distressing, as it’s your first time there.

ROME IN A DAY: PRACTICAL INFO ABOUT THIS TOUR

If you decide to take a tour on your own, I recommend you stick to this itinerary as much as you can, and you’ll see the best of the historical centre and more. Following this tips will save you confusion, frustration, and, in the end, money! Walking in the historical centre of Rome is like going through a massive museum without walls and ceiling. You can see a lot (for somebody will be too much) for free and in one day only, and with one walk! I recommend you wear comfortable shoes, you bring enough drinking water, and refrain from the sun, if it’s very hot. This tour could take up to 6 hours, easily… The tour starts at Piazza del Popolo and ends near the Vatican Museums. I will recommend a few places where to find street food or to get lunch/dinner too…
