20 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Rome in Italy
“All Roads Lead to Rome.” And so they should! The term stems from the fact that Rome was the epicenter of major roads during the peak of the Roman Empire. Rome was the first Italian city I ever visited, and the Eternal City is what got me hooked on the beautiful country. If you are contemplating traveling to Rome to see the famous Coliseum, Castle of Angels, Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, you absolutely must plan that trip ASAP! There is a reason why Rome is one of the most visited cities in the world.
Planning on going sightseeing in Rome? Rome is a wonderful destination for families, couples, budget travelers and solo female travel – what are you waiting for? Here are 20 photos to help get you inspired!

I’m inspired Flo! 😀 Actually I have been for a while, just haven’t made it to Europe yet! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos!
A brief, although very captivating look into Rome. It’s always fascinated me how ancient and modern worlds combine there. Thanks for sharing your photos and a nice look into roaming Rome.
Beautiful photos of Rome! I absolutely adora Roma! I hope to bring my son the next time that we go! Last time we went, I was pregant hehe.
All roads lead to Rome indeed! I was feelings so nostalgic digging through my Rome pics last night to post on IG… now I miss it even more! Rome was my first Italian city too and I was hooked for sure 😉 Can’t wait to see what other Italian cities have to offer!
I’ve never been to Rome! In fact, I’ve never been to Europe 😛 But I’ve heard many people recommending Rome to me and I can see why! Thanks for sharing your pics – it totally inspires me to go visit on my first Euro trip!
YOU SERIOUSLY CAPTURED ROME BEAUTIFULLY! When I visited two summers ago with my mom and younger sister, I was so taken aback by how old everything was. Things in Spain are old, but seeing the buildings and the coliseum was something else! I loved this! (:
You really have an eye for photography! This makes me want to travel Rome. There seems to be so much history to it!
You just made my wanderlust for Italy even worse. It’s my legit dream to visit one day as I have never been to Europe. All roads were built by the Romans during their empire, right? My dream is to go to the Trevi Fountain and make a wish to come back to Italy.
Love these picture Flo. There’s no place like Rome. “Rome is the city of echoes, the city of illusions, and the city of yearning.”
-Giotto di Bondone, Renaissance painter
I know that we are still yearning to go there 😉
The eternal city <3
Gorgeous pictures!! I’ve been to Rome once but only for a few days. This is inspiring me to go back ❤
I feel like there’s always something new to discover in Rome – hope you get to go back soon!
Wow these are such beautiful pictures! They make me want to visit Rome which I totally should since it’s not that far away from where I am!
I love train travel in Italy – would it take you long to get to Rome from where you are? 4 hours?
I’ve been and these are inspiring me to go back!! Such a great city with so much history & culture 🙂 Great post!
There’s something about the city that keeps me coming back for more!
I love Rome! It’s one of my favorite cities in the world to be honest. I’m a small town girl from the Philippines and I’ve never expected that I will be able to go to a place which I only see in history books not once but twice and probably even more. Your photos are amazing as always. 🙂
It it mine too, Noemi! Visiting Rome for the first time a few years ago was a dream come true 🙂
Such great pictures! I visited Rome for the first time about 6 years ago.. maybe a little more.. but havent been back since. I went with a my Euro Tour group which might be why I didnt really enjoy it but I guess its time to make a new trip back
Oh no! Definitely go back and explore at your own pace, Claudia 🙂
Ugh! I love it so much! I have always really wanted to go to Rome! Hopefully one day soon I will make it!
Rome is so amazing – and a super walk-able city! Hope youmake it soon Chiera 🙂
Awesome photos! My husband and I visited Rome a year ago and we both love the city. 🙂
It’s a wonderful city – how long did you spend in Rome?
Stunning to say the least ??? Loving your pics ?
Thanks for checking this out Sheena.
your photos are so gorgeous!! I visited Rome once for a little over a day and I loved it! 🙂 Great post!
Rome is such a wonderful city – even after visiting 3, 4 times I don’t feel like I’ve truly experienced all it has to offer!
I have been to Rome in January and had a great time. Loved all the historical places, the food and wine of course, and the people were super nice!
It’s a wonderful place to be a tourist, that’s for sure!
Beautiful Rome. You managed to capture the history of Rome pretty well. Great pictures. I have been in Rome a couple of times, but it never gets boring.
I totally agree, Ellis. I normally fly into Rome or London if I’m visiting Europe, and I absolutely love the city!
