Well there are a couple of things you can squeeze in 24 hrs: Colosseum and Roman Forum (passing by on both cases and not entering inside). Fontana di TreviPiazza di Spagna maybe Pantheon. For restaurants, going out etc I recommend Piazza Navona. If you have time and like to, you can visit the Vatican City (again not going inside museums, but maybe visit St. Peters Basilica).

you can find more details here:

That's a tough one. There is so much to see that three days isn't even enough. I think I would focus on Roman Forum and the Colosseum and then do the Trastevere neighborhood for dinner and drinks.

Hey Jaimye,

Rome is huge, so I suggest picking a small area/neighborhood and seeing what you can in that time. If you haven't been before, I do recommend checking out some of the touristy sights (they are truly amazing).

Beginning at Circo Massimo, you can see part of the Palatino and Roman Forum. From there, you can walk to the Colosseo. Just near by, you'll find Capitoline Hill and Piazza Venezia. Not *too* much further is the Trevi Fountain, which is located near tons of shopping.

Another option would be to explore Trastevere and Gianicolo/Monte Verde. There you can see Castel Sant'AngeloTiber RiverDell'Acqua Paola Fountain (with sweeping views of the city center) and Villa Sciarra or Villa Doria Pamphilj. I wrote about this part of Rome here, if you're looking for more detail. :)

The Vatican City (St. Peter's Basilica and Vatican Museums which are home to the Sistine Chapel) will take an entire day. If you decide to see these, be sure to buy tickets in advance.

Enjoy your time in the Eternal City!
