If Rome wasn’t already on your travel bucket list, I’m telling you that it deserves a spot. I only spent a few short days here, and I already can’t wait to go back and explore more. There are so many reasons why you should visit Rome.

It is a city ripe with history and stunning architecture. There is so much to explore and take in. I have included The Vatican City as well since they are closely intertwined. There are so many reasons to visit Rome and The Vatican City.

This next installment in my ‘why you should visit’ wanderlust series takes us back to Europe, specifically Italy. If you’re new here, we previously virtually visited Panama. Santorini, and Cartagena. We have also explored street art in Spain. Just because we can currently travel abroad, doesn’t mean we can’t dream a little, and start planning our next dream vacation.

While everybody knows to visit the Roman Colosseum and The Vatican City, what most people don’t talk about is St. Peter’s Basilica. Also located in Vatican City, it is stunning both inside and out.

Plan to spend an entire day at the Vatican City so you have enough time to explore it thoroughly. It may be the world’s smallest city, but it packs a lot into a small space. Without further ado, below is my photo gallery of reasons why you should put Rome on your travel bucket list.
