When in Rome do as the tourists do!

Last semester, I would look at my map of Rome and think how am I going to be able to get around such a big city, but once I got here I realized how close everything is to each other! In only three days, my family got to see almost every tourist area in Rome! 

Here's the brief itinerary that I made for when my family visited. It is a good option if you are only in Rome for a few days! 

Day 1:
The Aventine Keyhole (View of St. Peter's)
Giardino degli Aranci 
The monument to Vittorio Emanuele II (Free admission to museum inside)
Piazza Venezia (where the Vittorio Emanuele II is located)
The Colosseum (On the way you will see Trajan's Column)
The Roman Forum 

Day 2: 
Trevi Fountain 
Via del Corso (Shopping)
Spanish Steps
Villa Borghese (Rental Bikes for only 4 euro an hour or canoes for 3 euro for 20 minutes)

Day 3:
Campo di Fiori
Piazza Navona 
The Pantheon

The Vatican Museums (Including Sistine Chapel)
St. Peter's Cathedral

I know there is a lot listed for each day but if my mom can do it, you can do it!
