Italy’s capital, as the home of three thousand years of Western history, has an incredible wealth of ancient sites blended with modern sounds. The streets still brim with that lively spirit that drove the city to become the center of the world: butchers loudly chat with passers-by, construction workers walk past Roman ruins, and teenagers zip their mopeds over the cobblestone. Even with the most ambitious Roman travel plan, one could spend weeks in the city without even getting close to experiencing it all. But that's the beauty of the Eternal City.
Rome is massive, brimming with landmarks and activities, but it’s not as daunting as it may seem at first glance. Many of the sites are located within walking distance of one another (like the Colosseum, the Forum, and the Trevi Fountain) but other must-sees lie farther afield. A culture-seeking traveler should spend some time in Rome’s vibrant outlying neighborhoods, and everybody should see the Vatican’s incredible collection of artwork and religious history. Luckily, Rome’s metro system is simple, clean, and efficient, though not as extensive as those in other capitals (also, pickpockets thrive at busy stations, so stay alert). The three-day Roma Pass is a great choice for travelers who want to see a lot and go everywhere. For €34, it provides free admission to two museums or attractions and free rides on buses and the metro. Buy it at participating sights and at newsstands at Termini station.
