Visit Rome in 2 days
1st day - FRIDAY: arrival at 14:00, the time to arrive at the apartment and immediately we left immediately for the visit to the Vatican Museums.
On the internet I tried to find out how to avoid finding a queue, and as also recommended by the owner of the apartment, the secret lies in choosing the right time, that of lunch, that is, from 12:30 to 14:30.
So it was, we entered in no more than five minutes.
La visit to the Vatican Museums it was a unique experience, which I will never forget and as Francesco says “there is so much of that art put together that you can't fully enjoy the magnificence and beauty of every single work”.
Everything we have seen is indescribable sculptures, the archaeological remains, the paintings, the curtains, gallery and the fabulous Sistine Chapel.

I think a whole day is not enough to fully enjoy i Vatican Museums.
Unfortunately, in two and a half hours we had to visit everything, so going almost in a hurry, we saw everything but we did not focus on the single works.
2nd day - SATURDAY: in the morning we were at Coliseum, a monument that in my opinion is a must for anyone who goes to Rome.
Released from Coliseum we so headed to Sant'Angelo castel, which I wanted to visit at all costs after reading Dan Brown's beautiful book "Angels and Demons".
If you want to visit the prisons, I anticipate that there is only one visit per day which is held, if I'm not mistaken, at 12:30.
We lost it, and we were so sorry.
Last visit to the tomb of Pope John Paul II and then straight on the dome of St. Peter.
Il panorama enjoyed from up there is the most surprising I have ever seen, it almost seems to fly.
In the evening we went out to the center of Romto which it is gorgeous in the evening.
3rd day - SUNDAY: we went to the Trevi Fountain e Spanish Steps, a little bit all of the historic center of Rome, we strolled through the streets of this splendid city that has only to surprise.
We left in the late afternoon.
Was a beautiful weekend, in the name of culture, art and relaxation.
