So you’ve booked your trip to Italy and in between your visits to various areas you’ve found there’s only 2 days to visit Rome. Don’t panic! There are a number of ways you can maximize your enjoyment of this amazing city and below are some of the best ways to save time while you savor the experience of Rome.
Few cities are as rich in beauty and charm as Rome and if you’re limited on time make sure you take advantage of a solid guide company (us, or a different high-quality professional, but just beware of the many tourist traps) to make the most of your visit. You can get a good guidebook and see the most popular parts of the city on your own but truthfully if you take that route you’ll be missing out, especially with the limited time you have on hand.
Adding in a tour guide means you have access to things like skipping entrance lines, learning bits of history that only the locals know, and seeing the important parts of the city rather than just the ones that are the most visited.
Visiting the various museums and archaeological sites in the city is one of the delights of Rome. A lot of tourists ask us if it worth to buy a Roma Pass, which lasts 48 hours and offers free admission to 2 and also can be used for free public transport around the city of Rome as well. In our opinion, it is a good choice only if you’re keen to see a lot of museums and make a very intensive use of public transportation in your 48 hours. In fact, you have a good saving of money and time only if you move quite far from the average utilization. Much,much better to go on a per-entrance and per-move tickets, as most of the
beauties of Rome can be enjoyed for free and in the open air. The city centre is quite large, but it worth to walk trough, exploring small streets, minor churches and remains from antiquities that are spread here and there.

One of the great things about Rome is that it’s a thriving city with an incredible amount of history everywhere you look. Because it’s so gorgeous it can be easy to get caught up in a frenzy of “see more, do more!” and it’s important to slow down and take time to eat well and enjoy life as a Roman even with a Ancient Rome Experience even if it’s only for a few days. Here’s where a guide will serve you well as they’ll have an inside scoop on the perfect restaurant to enjoy a leisurely lunch or know an out of the way, local favourite place for dinner and even for some delicious gelato. While it’s great to see as much of the city as possible it’s also equally wonderful to soak it in while dining alfresco and enjoying an unforgettable meal with new found friends.
