1. Eat Cacio e Pepe
It doesn’t get any richer than this classic Roman dish made with Pecorino, black pepper, and more Pecorino. You can order this cheesy and delicious pasta all over Rome, but check out my favorites in this post on where to eat in Rome.

2. See the Trevi Fountain
As one of the most famous things you must do in Rome, naturally, it gets quite crowded. The fountain is breathtaking when it’s lit up at night, but you need to get there early in the morning if you want the place to yourself.

3. Get Gelato
Preferably at Frigidarium or Gelateria del Teatro. Fridgidariumdips the cone in chocolate making a hard shell over the gelato like a dip, Italian Style. Get the rest of the scoop (pun intended) here.

4. Go to the Pantheon
I like to come here in the early morning, but getting an afternoon Aperol Spritz in the piazza will really give you that “Is this real life?” moment. Entrance to the Pantheon is free, the Aperol Spritz is slightly overpriced at about $10 each.

5. Have an Aperitivo
An aperitivo is a drink and light snack to be enjoyed before dinner, to open up your digestive system before a lengthy, multi-course dinner. The classic choice is an Aperol Spritz. It’s made of prosecco and Aperol, a slightly bitter orange liquor. Try Gran Caffè la Caffettiera for a view of the Temple of Hadrian and hearty snacks. Go to Da Simo Pane e Vino if you’re on a budget.

6. Visit St. Clement Basilica
After many weekend trips to Rome we finally discovered St. Clement Basilica on the recommendation of this guesthouse we stayed at in Trastevere. After living in Italy for almost three years, we’ve seen a lot of churches and this one still blew me away. There are actually three different levels that have sunk into the earth over time. You can visit the first level for free and it’s about $10 to see the other levels.

7. Visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum
Nothing says classic Rome like the Colosseum. Going inside the Colosseum and the Roman Forum might not be for everyone (especially if you’re short on time), but seeing the incredible amphitheater, the Arch of Trajan and the ancient ruins is something you must do in Rome. Be sure to walk out the side that leads to the Campidoglio to see breathtaking statues and views of the Roman Forum.

8. Wander the streets of Trastevere
This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Rome. It’s so charming with its ivy-covered buildings, cobblestoned alleyways, and outdoor restaurants.
