Is the Colosseum Rome worth the trip
From the duchy to the world: Rome is always worth a trip!
By Antje Gaedt
All roads lead to Rome, as they say in the vernacular. And indeed, many who have once made their way to the Eternal City will return at some point. Throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain alone promises that. And it's worth it! Historic Rome is bursting with buildings steeped in history, art treasures and in-boutiques. Whether Colosseum or gallery, vegetable market or trendy café, Rome is rich in sights and places to see and be seen.
You meet here in the piazza, of which Rome has a lot. Locals and tourists, students and managers alike. There is a trendy café or bar for everyone in Rome's impressive squares. For example, around the corner from the Pantheon there is the famous coffee roastery "Tazza D’Oro". The Italians get their espresso here early in the morning, and in the afternoon tourists flock here to try the freshly roasted coffee or to bring the exquisite coffee beans home as a souvenir. A colorful fruit and vegetable market takes place in the mornings on Campo de Fiori. Then it gets lively here and you can have a good lunch in the surrounding alleys.
The Gianicolense district is still quite unknown to tourists. It is a residential area with small shops for the Romans. No tourist bells and whistles, rather everyday items such as butchers, bakeries, etc. But also always interesting little shops, simple cafes and a real and authentic Rome. Gianicolense also offers one of the largest Roman markets, which may seem a bit dingy at first glance, but wins a lot of sympathy points just because of its atmosphere.
St. Peter's Basilica is one of the classic landmarks of Rome and probably at least every Rome traveler goes there to take a closer look. If you want to go to St. Peter's Basilica or would like to enjoy fantastic views of the eternal city from its dome, it is best to get up very early. Because already in the morning at 8 o'clock the queue is long and the rush does not stop during the day.
It is similar with the Vatican museums. An eternally long queue outside, inside the crowds pushing past the treasures of the world. Despite the rush, the museums are definitely worth a visit, even for those who don't like museums. One of the highlights is Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel, a truly impressive work. But also the Greek gods, huge wall paintings and Egyptian sculptures leave you amazed. In order to avoid the long queue, it is advisable to buy the tickets in advance on the Internet.
Rome visitors shouldn't plan too much. There are an unbelievable number of sights, but the real charm of Rome is more revealed when you take a leisurely stroll through the alleys and have a relaxed chat in the café.
