Rome Day 3: Villa Borghese, Trastevere, Piazzas & Shopping

Altare della Patria at Piazza Venezia

Since I did so much in Rome on Day 1 and on Day 2, I reserved day 3 for doing pretty much anything, a free-for-all where I would just explore the city in general, go in a couple of shops and just take in Rome.

One of the places I hadn’t been and wasn’t too bothered about going to was Villa Borghese, which is a huge landscape garden type of place. It was Sunday morning, so I thought I’d have a walk around here for a while. It’s the home to a few sculptures and statues, lots of greenery and the Borghese gallery and museum.

I went to the Piazza Del Popolo which is a huge square, then to the Piazza Venezia along with the Altare della Patria, yet another cool place. In the late afternoon I went to Trastevere, which is a more traditional and old fashioned neighbourhood of the centre of Rome, and saw the Piazza Santa Maria along with a couple of other things there.

I also went back to the Vatican for another look around and to do some shopping, this is where the Hard Rock shop is.

I did the usual tourist types of shops when it came to shopping, and even though I love fashion and Rome has endless numbers of high street and high end fashion shops, I didn’t go in any, but saw plenty.

Here’s some more photos from Day 3 in Rome.

Cute Rome Streets Busy

I love taking random photos of the streets of Rome. They look so good, filled with people, restaurants, shops and architecture.

The streets in Trastevere have their own charm which is different from the rest of Rome.
