Car rental in Rome should be one of the first things you set up; by the end of your first day, you'll appreciate the convenience of motorized transportation. The one attraction every visitor must see is the Colosseum; this huge arena once hosted everything from mock sea battles and gladiator fights to some of the most innovative plays ever concocted. Art lovers will also enjoy the Sistine Chapel. Do you want to relax by viewing where ancient Romans once relaxed? Make the Baths of Caracalla your next stop. Pace yourself, however, because the attractions in Rome are nearly never-ending.
Recurring Festivals and Events
After a long day of tourist activities, restful Rome hotels may seem like your most relaxing option. Relaxation is important, but don't pass up opportunities to attend events like Rock in Roma, the rock festival held between July and August yearly, or the Natale di Roma, an event that celebrates Rome's "birthday" at the Campidoglio. If one of your main destinations was the Sistine Chapel, you'll also love the art festival, the Occhi Rossi Festival, held near the end of May.
