This is my list of monuments you’re going to visit in Rome. You have all the practical information with the location, price and timetables for 2019.
There are several things you need to know when you are going to travel to the Italian capital. This city has, only in the downtown area, 25 thousand places of cultural, historical or archaeological interest. And a lot of tourists through its streets. Today I want to share this practical information so that you know when to visit the monuments of Rome. A relation with the timetables and prices of the places you will want to visit in the city.
For me this kind of information is always very useful to organize the routes by days and get the most out of the destinations. Rome is a big city and quite chaotic by the way. So if you have little time or want to see as much as possible save this article among your favorites.
When to visit Rome’s monuments, prices and timetables
In this list of monuments of Rome I have included the most important and those that you will be able to see if you are at least 5 days in Rome. Keep in mind that the information is changing and updating over time and may vary slightly. It is important to reconfirm with the official website of the monument we want to visit. Although do not be surprised if sometimes you do not find that information or do not even have a website.
Another thing I want you to keep in mind when you go to visit the places with the most tourists in Rome is that you are going to find very long queues. My recommendation is that you always buy in advance the entrance to the museum, church or monument you want to go to.
On the first trip, when I bought the tickets, at the box office, I had to wait a long time in the queues. That’s why, on my second visit to Rome, the entrance to the Vatican and to the Forum and Colosseum was with an organized excursion. It’s the way to reduce waiting time. Also, as they are in Spanish you learn a lot of curious things about Rome.
I leave you with this list of times and prices of essential places for you to know when to visit the monuments of Rome. I have included the most important and representative, but if you want to have a more complete list you can have a look at this article I wrote about 50 things to see and do in Rome. Miguel also wrote another about plans in Rome in which he recommends the 10 places you should visit the first time in the capital of Lazio. I also have another one of excursions in Rome that you must do in your first time in the city.
