Rome was once the capital of the Roman Empire and today is one of the largest European capitals which tourists travel to in their numbers to see the ancient sights for themselves.
Sightseeing in Rome is both exciting and exhausting. The city is best seen by foot, in order to avoid missing any of the thousands of architectural gems. Spanning from basilicas, piazzi, churches, and museums all the way to the Vatican City, seeing all of the sights in Rome could take more than one visit. But during your concert break you're sure to want to see some of it, so why not check out our PDF on the top 10 sights to see (it was hard to narrow it down!).
With numerous festivals beginning during Holy Week, the peak tourist season runs from Easter through to October. During the winter the weather is relatively mild, add the much smaller crowds and it makes the season a great time to visit Rome.
