20 Things to do in Rome, Italy Travel Guide Video Transcript: (ROMA)

Rome, the Eternal City. After several trips to Italy, we finally managed to visit our biggest oversight: the capital! From wandering through Roman ruins to devouring pizza, and climbing up lookout points to feasting on gelato, in this travel guide, we’re going to share with you 20 things to do in Rome, Italy:

We reached Roscioli which was the best pizza in Rome. Pizzas are served by the weight and we sampled 7 different pizza slices.

We stopped at Largo di Torre Argentina an archaeological site home to four different temples containing parts of the portico of Pompey.

It was a short walk to the Pantheon, a former Roman temple turned church, which dates back to the year 125 AD. The Pantheon boasted the world’s largest cupola up until the 15th century, and it is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in existence to this day making it one of the greatest architectural achievements by the ancient Romans.

If you want to find the best gelato, look for colours that are muted with small batches.

One of the many things to do in Rome, was to visit the Trevi Fountain. This is the largest Baroque fountain in the city.

Rome’s most famed attraction is the Colosseum and its surrounding ruins. We started our visit on Palatine Hill, the most central of Rome’s seven hills. What visitors see today are the ruins of the Palace of Domitian, a 1st-century complex, which served as the main imperial palace for 300 years. We continued to the Roman Forum. This square was the centre of ancient Roman life, with government buildings, temples, and markets. We reached the Colosseum, which was the largest amphitheatre ever built and could hold an estimated 50,000 and 80,000 spectators.

Walking through the Vatican Museum was more overwhelming than enjoyable. We visited Vatican City to climb St. Peter’s Basilica for views of Rome.

Castel Sant’Angelo was commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family.

Villa Borghese is the 3rd largest public park in Rome with gardens, villas, and ponds with views of the city overlooking Piazza del PO-polo, the people’s square.

That concludes our tour of Rome showcasing the many things to do in Rome on your own trip.

This is part of our Travel in Italy video series showcasing Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine.

Nevena Ćirić says:

Hi 🙂 Can you tell me where are these stairs at 12:09?

Nina Anwamane says:

I was in Rome last year and absolutely loved it, though we had so many tours booked that we unfortunately probably didn’t get to just wander and sight see as much as we wanted. Did you guys get a chance to go to the Borghese Gallery? It’s so beautiful and walking through Trastevere is also really lovely to visit. One of my favourite things to see was the Capuchin Crypt, which holds the bodies of mummified monks. Absolutely amazing to see!

Anatoliy Pavliuk says:

Among all the Italian cities that I visited, in Rome, I feel the soul of the city best.

Bruno Gambini says:

As far as I remember, the white palace in Piazza Navona, behind the fountain, houses the Brazilian embassy in Rome (my country’s embassy!). I did not know that cat place you showed! Awesome! To me the best attractions in Rome are the Pantheon, the Forum and the Vatican Museum (in Vatican City). I loved to visit this places!

Peter Budavari says:

Dude, this was so much Andrew Zimern at 3:17: “Oh wow! This is a beautiful tomato sauce…” I love this gesture! Myself also a food enthusiast, it’s why I watch your videos guys! 🙂

Jorge Rodríguez says:

Hey guys. What’s the name of the place where you had pasta for lunch? Looks delicious! Thanks for your great work!

Telluwide says:

Click batey thumbnail, site see and eat, sight see and eat….Do you Travel Vloggers ever attempt to stay in one place longer than a few days or a week and at least try learning some of the language???Are there any travel vlogs that are original anymore???

Peter Kelly says:

way back in ’68 you could get to another, the last level in the dome which only had room for maybe 10 people at a time. I could see it in your video but it obviously is not accessible to the public anymore. When i went to the forum there were only about 8 people / tourists and you could hire an audio guide that was a lug-gable battery back pack that ran a tape deck with step by step commentary …

Zack Sal says:

Hi guys nice to see your videos in italy. I see you were wearing coats. 1. In which month was your travel? 2. Was it too cold if i would like to travel with my 2 years old baby at winter in Rome?

m p says:

HM Truong Anh Thu says:

Paul H. Kircher III says:

I’m surprised the Italians even had the craftsmanship to make it here, I mean show me one that isn’t an underwriter.

Bajlandia says:

Mike McLean says:

Thanks! Fellow Canadian here. I’m heading to Rome in 2 weeks!

Sujil Ss says:

Woow super….

VanMaiTai says:

This brings back so many memories of our trip in Oct 2017. TIP TO GET INTO ST. PETER’S BASILICA WITHOUT HAVING TO WAIT IN LINE: When you’re inside the Sistine chapel follow the tour groups that exit out the door on the right. They get to go straight into the basilica with out having to wait in any line. The workers aren’t checking whether or not you’re part of the group. Only catch is that you miss out on the last bit of the museum if you just follow the ppl not part of the tour groups which i didn’t mind. I also didn’t know that it cost more to buy tickets online but we bought our tickets online for the Vatican museum and the Colosseum and I don’t regret passing everyone in line LOL. We didn’t climb up the basilica but we opted to go down into the crypt where they had all the past popes laid to rest. Couldn’t believe some were only popes for a few days!!

Paul Green says:

I went to the Vatican a couple of years ago. My tip would be book a guided tour for the Vatican museums. I did not have to queue and provided some direction through the museums which made it more manageable. I was also there for new years which made it a great experience

Paul H. Kircher III says:

You know Italians don’t scare me they scare the newfangled I mean the newborn world.

DanVsWorld says:

Rome is beautiful, you did a great job capturing all the sights!

Anthony Kernich says:

I’m going to the Vatican, but only to St Peters and to get a passport stamp/flag/postcard. The Vatican Museums are too much of a waste of my precious time for me. I’d rather pound around Trastevere.
