Our top picks of things to do, see and eat in Rome, Italy!

If you’re heading to Rome to live your best Lizzie Mcguire dream and need a little advice on how to plan your trip, fear no more. The TruCrew have done all the research for you and are here to help you plan your perfect Italian adventure.




First up we have one of the most famous fountains in the world. The stunning and iconic Trevi Fountain. If you’re looking for a great photo opportunity then this is where you’re going to get the shot but remember that there will be a lot (and by a lot, we mean A LOT) of tourists around so if you’re keen to see it when it’s less crowded, we would recommend you visit in the early hours between 5-6am.

Did you know that there is a myth about the Trevi Fountain? If you didn’t then we’re here to tell you about it. Here’s what happens… If you throw one coin into the fountain, it will ensure you return to Rome in the future. If you throw two coins, you will fall in love & if you throw three then it’s your lucky year because that means that you will marry!


Next up, head towards Piazza Venezia and on the way stop by the Pantheon, one of the best preserved ancient Roman buildings out there. If you’re feeling a little peckish then make sure to check out Sale e Pepe, an incredible salumeria (delicatessen) just 2 minutes from the piazza that serves meats, cheeses and Italian styled paninis! Explore piazza Venezia, walk around the free museum and if you fancy getting a birds eye view of the whole city then grab a ticket and head to the rooftop where you can enjoy a drink with a view!

You then want to head to the main event… the Colosseum. Let’s just say, the earlier you go, the better. This place is so incredibly busy for all the right reasons but it can get a little overwhelming so we would recommend pre-booking your tickets online prior to your trip! Most tickets also include entry to Palatine hill opposite the colosseum which is a lot less crowded and such a nice place to explore.

Last but certainly not least, you’ll want to head over to a whole new country… the Vatican. Yes, if you don’t believe us then check for yourself but this incredible place is actually the smallest independent state in the world! Here, you can check out St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel famous for its breathtaking ceiling painted by Michelangelo!


Finish your day in Trastevere, a bustling and vibrant neighbourhood filled with amazing restaurants, bars and aperitivo spots. If you can, make sure to pre-book as there can often be long queues for many of these. Our favourite spots for pasta and pizza are Tonnarello, Otello and Osteria Nannarella.


So there you have it! A perfect travel guide for your first time in Rome. If you’re looking to explore Rome and beyond all the way to the Amalfi coast then make sure to check out our Slice of Italy tour!
