Daphne Reconnaissance Walk which is a walk we highlight for you on the map, that takes you around the center, including: The Spanish Steps, Pincio Hill, Piazza del Popolo, the Pantheon, St. Ignazio, Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Largo Argentina and Trevi Fountain.
Of course, we show you where our favorite ice cream and coffee spots are, and throw in a couple of fabulous churches tucked along the way for good measure.
This walk takes about 3 hours, not including stops, so you can do some or all of it.
If this is not a Saturday or Sunday, then visit the Vatican and Vatican Museums. Saturday is very crowded and the Museums close early. On Sunday, the Museums are closed.
This is a full day, although you can do it over two days if you like. After this, you can either walk back, passing Castel St Angelo, then strolling through the center over the beautiful via dei Coronari or via del Governo Vecchio, and visit anything you missed on the first day.
Or you can take the bus up to the top of the Gianicolo hill and have a gorgeous view of the city from above, then walk down into Trastevere for dinner.
In the morning, visit St. Peter in Chains (Michelangelo's Moses), San Clemente Church (fascinating underground excavation of 2000+ yearold burial grounds.)
Have lunch, and then visit Ancient Rome, including the Coliseum and Roman Forum and possibly the Palatine
