As my site expands, I'm finding myself trying to think of new ways for it—and, by extension, for Rome—to be navigable to readers.
Enter a suggestion from a friend of mine, who says he used Revealed Rome to plan his trip last week, but could have used a little more help on where was what: a map. Um. Brilliant. (Thanks, Billy!).
So here it is. A map of Rome in which I impatiently lovingly inserted every single sight, restaurant, shop, hotel, and church I've written about on Revealed Rome. At your service.
I hope it helps you plan your trip—or, if you're already in Rome and have a smartphone, for seeing what I might recommend in the area. Just two things to keep in mind:
1) I don't recommend every place I've mapped without reservations. Some are sights that not everyone might like; others are restaurants that have gone downhill. So, when you click on a pushpin to see what it is, please also click where it says "website" to read what I wrote about it in my linked blog post.
2) Please note that this is not an exhaustive guide to everything I recommend doing and seeing in Rome. (That's for another day!). Instead, it's a more visual way to navigate the blog posts I've written.
What do you think? Any other ideas to help improve Revealed Rome? Let me know in the comments!
Pefrect and just in time 🙂 We are going tomorrow on our vacation in Rome. Thank you for the good info here on your blog 🙂
Amanda, my compliments on all the valuable information you share on your website. We just returned from Rome, where we took advantage of many of your suggestions, including dinner at L’Asino d’Oro (wonderful!), a tour of the lower and 3d tiers of the Colosseum, and dining away from the touristy areas, in Testaccio and Trastevere. We wound up selecting Walks of Italy for our Colosseum/Forum tour, based on your association with them, and Vincenzo did an extraordinary job of bringing the ancient world to life for us. To all who are reading this blog, we highly, highly recommend it.
I’m so thrilled to have helped! Thanks so much for the feedback; it’s wonderful to hear back from people who went to Rome and followed some of my suggestions. If you found any favorite restaurants/shops/other places you think I should write about, definitely let me know!
Glad the timing worked out 🙂 Enjoy your trip to Rome, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about anything while you’re there!
Great map! This is really, really useful!
I was last in Rome about 10 years ago. I have to say I was pretty nervous trying to get my upcoming trip planned out and deciding what to see. I’m definitely still nervous since I’ve never done a solo vacation before, but now it looks like I’ve got some help.
Thanks for this, you get to be my hero for the foreseeable future. Or the next 10 minutes… but either way you got to be my hero. 🙂
