Interrail Journals #6: A Roman Holiday

Last Updated on October 25, 2022 by Goya

A lovely evening filled with truffles, and a trip to Vatican City are all great, but no Roman Holiday would be complete without a trip to the Colosseum.

So, queue the music… And join us as we go from Colosseum:

Past Via dei Fori Imperiali:

To the Roman Forum:

Up to the beautiful hilltop Capitoline Hill (Piazza del Campidoglio) via the Cordonata staircase up from Piazza d’Aracoeli:

Back through the Roman Forum:

Before we take a little stroll towards Trastevere, where we go for a simple little bite at l’Antico Moro:

It’s all different “Trastevere” or “across the Tiber”, a former working-class area with pretty cobbled streets and a buzzing nightlife

… and visit Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest churches in Rome:

Before we head to Largo di Torre Argentina, with four ancient temples and the remains of Pompey’s Theatre, and then off we march to the Galleria Alberto Sordi for a little retail therapy and some coffee.

Want to follow in our footsteps? Then, I suggest you don your best walking shoes and check below:

As you can imagine, this map doesn’t show how much walking we actually did the whole day. My phone tells me it was close to 25.000 steps, including inside of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. So, yes… get ready for it! 🙂

And with that, it’s time to say “Arrivederci Roma“!

Until next time,
