Rome – The heart of the city

Third and final full day in hectic Rome.

Internet at our B&B has been down for the duration of our stay, which was quite frustrating as it made us use our (prepaid) travel data which we’re trying to ration as it wasn’t cheap. This B&B is not really a castle but it’s cheap with a good location so we can’t complain too much (long term travel is definitely very far from holidaying!).

This last day in Rome was dedicated to the heart of the city. Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain or the villa Borghese are some of the great landmarks we’ve been able to see during the day, in 36 degree heat.

Rome is hot and hectic but we’ve loved learning more about the history of this amazing city and how it influenced the rest of Europe for hundreds of years.

We end our day with a nice glass of white wine at Il Palazzetto, a lovely little rooftop bar with incredible views over the Spanish steps and the city.

Tomorrow we’re heading to Naples and will visit Pompeii for some more Italian history telling.



  • 3 full days is definitely a good amount of time to start visiting Rome and not be too rushed. If you’re a die hard history geek though, allow more time to visit more museums and galleries.
  • We couldn’t get in the Galleria Borghese as it was sold out for the next 2 weeks. Book this one online way in advance.
  • Il Palazetto is a great little spot to wind down at the end of a long day of sightseeing.

Distance walked: 16,238 steps – 10.9km
