It is not impossible, mate. Also, it gives you a very good feeling about coming back to Rome and reasons for missing this city.

Some information about this post. This post is an rome travel guide, but rome travel detailed guide.  somebodies tell as Rome Empire. but , whatever you called it, it is awesome city in Italy. I don’t share Rome map, but I will share our route via google maps. this is all about what to do in Rome in 3 days. Briefly it is a guide of Rome must see and this is really nice to check.

Let’s go with tour of Rome and here we go…

DAY 1 – 3 days in Rome

Lets start to travel of 3 Days in Rome. We landed to Fiumicino Airport in Rome. There are one more airport that I saw it when we were going to Florence. But, our flight landed to Fiumicino Airport. We chose the Alitalia due the flight times. It offers to the costumers early flight to the Rome and late time to go back your country. So, we decided to fly with Alitalia.

After landed, we tried to check some tourist info point to ask about transportation and tourist map. After we got our tourist map, we found a ticket seller to get ticket for metro to Termini Station from airport. It costed us 14 Euros for 1-person. Yeah, a little bit expensive. But, we solved this expensive cost while we were going back to the airport. Near Rome Termini Station, we found Alitalia shuttle to the airport. We asked for 2-seats reservation for going back to the airport. They said “yes, we can. It costs 6 Euros for 1-person”. This was our victory to the public transportation.

We got the metro to Termini Station. We got off the metro and walked through the outside of station. One road met us outside. There were many hotel and hostels around the Termini Station. Also, around Termini Station is really popular among the travelers which want to find a budget-friend accommodation and walk-distance to the popular buildings, historical places. We asked the soldiers of Rome about how can we find our Hotel Rubino and they answered us politely. We chose the Hotel Rubino. Beacuse it is really close to the Termini Station, just a few steps, and close to the supermarket, across the hotel, and close to the historical places, buildings and bus stations.

Now let us leave our gears in the hotel, we will come back soon.

INSIDE TO THE HOTEL

We met the hotel personnel. They were really helpful and kind to us. They told us that they got a mistake and couldn’t reserve 2 rooms for us. They offered us two different rooms or 1 bigger room and re-pay the rest of money. Of course, we chose second one :)) Extra money is like an ignition for our travels. After that, we asked about the breakfast and took breakfast tickets. We tried to find breakfast hall. But, the hotel is as in an apartment floor. So, we didn’t find a hall 🙂 instead of it we found a café that manages by two Italian. They are so good and friendly.

We want to say if they read this or bring this article to them and provides them to read this “hello friends” We tasted their croissant and delicious cappuccino and we talked them about the football, Italy etc. they answered our enormous number of questions kindly :))

Now, we got some advices from them and ready to go outside, to the unknown ambiance of Rome.

OUTSIDE OF HOTEL

After going outside of the hotel to the main street. We turned right and kept walking to the somewhere that we don’t know right now. After walked a while, we got a big street and we went across and turned left and walked the on the left sidewalk. You can find here lots of kiosk to get newspapers or tourist guide. After we stopped by one of kiosks, we continued to go to walk.

PLACES TO VISIT

Now we are on the Viale Enrico de Nicola street. You can see right side of this road some museums. After that we walked through the sidewalk and turned right to the Viale Luigi Einaudi street. These are also interesting street that heads you a basilica named as Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri. Here is really awesome place to visit by walking from the Termini Station. Inside of it is really attractive to the tourists. But, you have to notice that there is a basilica there. There are some cabinets inside also, some signs of the zodiac.

Pantheon is really good to see. There are concrete columns corners of Pantheon. It is in the middle of a square. Pantheon is very popular place to visit, so it is really crowded place all the time, but it is nice to visit. Also, you can go to a café near of Pantheon and eat delicious ice-cream in the café. One of them that we sat and ordered ice-cream with lemon but she brought me a cup of ice-cream with coconut. When I said to her about wrong taste, she said “Sorry, I will give you a cup of ice-cream with lemon, also you can finish coconut one” I was surprised and she took money just for lemon one. I ate a cup of ice-cream with coconut for free.

I watched tourist groups while I was eating my ice-cream. I loved outside of Pantheon. Also, inside of it is amazing. There is a big hole that goes through the sky. Lights come from that hole to the speaker who is in the Pantheon. And as I heard before, rain drop can’t enter the Pantheon from this hole.
