ROME IN THREE DAYS - WHAT TO DO AND SEE IN THREE DAYS IN ROME  SECOND DAY – THE ROMAN HOLIDAY TOUR

They were really a lot of people who have asked us to continue our step-by-step guide of planning your trip in Rome in 3 days, so here we are! 

Our City is a big film stage, great directors have been fallen in love of Rome! If you'd like to spent a day strolling around the city finding the scenes used for the filming of the movie, Roman Holiday, here's a nice tour to get to know the city through the most famous scenes of the epic film.

1 / TRINITÀ DEI MONTI

We have already finished our first day in Rome to Trinita dei Monti and from here we start

“Joe and Anna meet on the steps and She eats an ice cream (at the time you could!), And he, after following her all morning approaches her pretending a chance meeting

 

 

 

 

2 / TREVI FOUNTAIN

Maybe the most famous  Rome’s fountain, certainly for its beauty, thanks to the sophisticated hand of Bernini;  for its legends too - the tradition of throwing a coin over your 

shoulder into the fountain is supposed to bring good luck and ensure a return to the Eternal City; but  also because of  its legendary appearances in film like LA DOLCE VITA (Federico Fellini) and Roman Holiday. 

In the streets around the Trevi Fountain, the princess discovers the real city and the common everyday life: she buys a pair of shoes in a stall and she cuts his hair by a hairdresser in Via della Stamperia 85

 

3/ PALAZZO BARBERINI

The Palazzo Barberini, located at the end of Via Veneto in Piazza Barberini, is a magnificent baroque palace in a garden; the famous architects Bernini and Borromini worked on the project. You can see here the  Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica, which is considered one of the most important painting collections in Italy.

In the film the director rapresented here the the embassy of Princess Ann’s (Hepburn’s) home country.


 

4/ FONTANA DELLE NAIADI

Here The Princess Anne, jumping out from a small supply truck, starts her Roman Holiday.

The fountain can be found at the center of  Piazza della Repubblica, located beside the Termini Station.  Who are the Naiads? The Nymph of Underground Water, of the Oceans, of the Lakes and the Nymph of the Rivers.

 

 

 

5/ VIA DEI FORI IMPERIALI FROM PIAZZA VENEZIA TO THE COLISEUM

The Princess' visit was marked by a spectacular military parade at Via dei Fori Imperiali

The place really is the location chosen for the military parade on June 2, the day on which in Italy is celebrated Republic Day.

Anna and joe take at Via dei Fori Imperiali the famous Vespa Tour, from Piazza Venezia to Coliseum but recently the street was closed to traffic and is therefore no longer possible to replicate the famous scene of the movie! Anyway, a walk on the boulevard will give you the opportunity to admire the Roman Forum and arrive at the foot of the Coliseum

 

 

6/ ARCO DI SETTIMIO

Here joe meets Anna for the first time. He does not recognize the princess. She looks like drunk because of the effect of a sleeping pill.


The Arch of Septimius Severus is on the northwest end of the Roman Forum 

6/ THE MOUTH OF TRUTH


	
Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn come to the Mouth of Truth and here he tells her the legend  “if you're given to lying, you put 
you're hand in  it'll be bitten off”
The Mouth of Truth is located in the Portico of Santa Maria in Cosmedin Church,  one of the most famous churches in Rome. A reliquary containes the skull of St. Valentine. But this is not the patron saint of lovers! It's just a namesake
 
 

From here you can take many directions for interesting visits: the Baths of Caracalla, Trastevere, The Orange Garden and the Municipal Rose Garden

 

7/ PONTE SANT’ANGELO

Joe and Ann walk down the steps on the way to the barges for a dancing night

across the river. 


	

They are  between Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II and Ponte Sant'Angelo, located at the foot of Castel Sant'Angelo, a 2nd century mausoleum of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. Over the centuries it has served as a castle, papal residence, prison and is now the National Museum of Castel Sant'Angelo. The night of dancing ends with an escape jump into the river
