Four Days in Rome: What to See on Your Last Day in Rome
Well, your four days in Rome have already come to an end, and you have already arrived to the last day of your trip to Rome. It is time to buy some last minute souvenirs to take home, and to take some photos to show to your friends and family when you get back home. As sad as it may be, let us go and see what to do on the last day of your 4 days in Rome.
Four Days in Rome, The Last Day: Start from Santa Maria Maggiore.
Santa Maria Maggiore is a very large Basilica in the very center of Rome. You will probably be able to see its 14th century bell tower from a distance as it is the city's tallest, and don’t miss the tomb of Bernini, the famous artists and architect that embellished so much of Renaissance Rome, while you are inside admiring the ornate interior of this fantastic church. Then, going towards Piazza dell’Esquilino, you will be on Via delle Quattro Fontane, built on the order of the Pope Sixtus V from 1588 to 1593, who wanted to link the Pincio to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. It is surrounded by 4 fountains, which have on them 4 statues representing the rivers Tiber and Arno, and the goddesses Diana and Juno representing chastity and strength.
At the end of this avenue, you will see the most famous Fountain of Rome, the Trevi Fountain, the symbol of the Italian Dolce Vita, which has also become famous for the coins that tourists usually thrown inside it to ward off ill-luck, and ensure a return trip to Rome again in the future. The Spanish Steps are also a few steps away, and you will be able to take a rest on in front of the famous fountain in Piazza di Spagna, or do some shopping, since this area hosts plenty of exclusive shops and designer boutiques. Your shopping could go also continue along Via del Babuino, Via del Corso or Via Condotti, the top shopping streets in Rome, and then arrive at Piazza del Popolo, with the 24 meter high Flaminio Obelisk.
Four Days in Rome, The Last Day: Finish at Pincio.
Piazza del Popolo is the large square below the Pincio, which is located in Villa Borghese, one of the most appreciated green areas in the Eternal City. From the Pincio observation platform you can admire Rome in all its eternal beauty, and both a lot of tourists and a lot of Romans go there to see the sunset over the the city and the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. It is without doubt the perfect place to embed in your memories before your deptarture from this special city.
Bye bye Rome, see you soon!
