WHAT TO SEE IN ROME IN FEW DAYS In order to fully visit Rome, with all its glorious monuments, museums, churches and places with all their history it is obvious that not just a few days; but we should come back more than once.
Given this, then, in this part of the site we want to give some suggestions on how and what to see in Rome for those who have only 3, 5 or 7 days.
We appoint the most important places like the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and the St. Peter's Basilica , who is in Rome, must still visit at least once, but we will quote also lesser known but still important to the history or culture of Rome

The Colosseum area Obviously you can not visit Rome without seeing his symbolic monument, the Colosseum, and the archaeological area of ??the Roman Forum and the Palatine; the place where on April 21, 753 BC Romulus founded the city.
No matter how much time you have available, then, we must dedicate at least half a day to visit these sites; just buy a single ticket that allows you to visit both sites (Forum and Colosseum + Palatine) also the day after the first validation. So you can also choose to see one day the Colosseum and the Roman Forum and the Palatine next day (or vice versa).

Two tips:
1. to avoid long things entrance buy the ticket queue jump or enter the zones with less people, in the lunch or in the late afternoon
2. to the tour , will take more time (almost the entire day in the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine) but allows you to understand as fully as possible the most important places of Rome
