Rome in 24 Hours
Seeing Rome in one day is not the ideal way to experience the Eternal City, but if 24 hours is all you have, you can fit in all the big-name attractions. All the main sights are within walking distance, and a day gives you just enough time to make note of all the places you’d like to explore in great depth on a longer return visit. Do set out early, though, as substantial queues are the norm for every attraction. And be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
Your must-see guide to Rome should start with the Colosseum, the Roman Empire's most impressive building, before moving onto the Trevi Fountain, star of so many tourist selfies. Next on your list could be the Pantheon—which will probably seem very familiar, due to its imitation in any number of libraries, universities, and public halls. You could spend your entire day in St. Peter's Basilica, but squeeze in as much time as you can before collapsing in the restaurant of your choice. (We love the pizzeria Dar Poeta, but so do many others, judging by the queues!)
