As the saying goes “all roads lead to Rome”, so it’s no surprise that most travelers embark on a journey to the Eternal City at least once in their lives. Filled with history, ancient architecture, and some of the best food in the world, Rome is without a doubt one of the best cities in Europe.Back in February 2017 I had the chance to “do as the Romans do” and spend one week in the Capital. Here I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 things to do in Rome and I hope it will help you plan your own Roman Holiday.1. SANTA MARIA DELLA CONCEZIONE DEI

After experiencing the peaceful canals of Venice and carefree days of wandering through Florence and the Tuscan countryside, it is natural to think you should head straight to Rome to complete your tour of Italy. If you are able to, however, hold that thought and take a small detour to the sleepy little town of Assisi. Located in Umbria, it is home to the infamous Basilica de San Francesco. If you are seeking a cathedral that stands out from the crowd, then this is the place for you. The cathedral is actually comprised of two separate buildings on top of each other: the one on the bottom, which contains the tomb of St Francis, is older and adorned with frescos. The top of the cathedral juts out of the mountain in a dramatic display of beauty. Of course there are many other things to check out in this city, but if you are able to make it there on a short stop, you will be rewarded with a single visit to this cathedral.
