Three days in Rome — Day 3
Uh-Oh it’s your last day in Rome. So sad… But don’t worry I know how to make it wonderful for you. There is still plenty of things to discover. Let’s not waste a second longer and start straight away.
Spanish Steps & Piazza Del Popolo
Piazza di Spagna, 00187 Roma
The Spanish Steps are a true depiction is history and the beauty of unity. Opened in 1735, it consists of 135 steps, hence its popularity. However, beyond the number of steps, the steps are perfectly built to link the Trinita dei Monti and the Spanish Embassy.
Piazza del Popolo, 00187 Roma
Piazza del Popolo is situated at the beginning of Via Flaminia and was the main entrance to the city during the Roman Empire. Bordered by twin churches, the square is just unbelievably huge and its central obelisk which is a must see will not disappoint you.
Villa Borghese & Gardens
Piazzale Napoleone I, 00197 Roma
Take the stairs that will take you to Pincio Hill. Enjoy the view and then enter the gardens of Villa Borghese up Via Delle Magnolie. Go to Viale Pietro Canonica and I strongly advise you to turn left and pass the gates to go to see, at the end, the temple of Asclepios. You can even rent a boat and spend a romantic moment. You can get into the Borghese Gallery which is an important and famous museum of the city. The collection it holds is impressive!
Chiesa di Santa Maria della Vittoria
Via Venti Settembre, 17, 00187 Roma
Are you looking for the perfect place to take some beautiful picture? Then this church is famed for its sculpture by Bernini that is dated back as far as the 17th century — and is worth seeing and taking a photo of. If you are also a fan of art, then you can head over to the National Gallery of Ancient Art, found in the Palazzo Barberini where you can see Italy’s most important collection of paintings.
