5. Take an Oculus selfie

8. Count the cats in the Colosseum


There can't be the Rome pick without Colosseum in it. Buy the ticket on-line to avoid the queue (it costs 12€).
Сoncerning to the cats, here live over two hundreds of them and, according to the official web-site, they have the employee, who knows the names of each one.

Near, on the Via Cavour, 302, you will find another office of the scooter rental to give back your Vespa. It'll be important for the 10 step of the pick ;-)

9. See the sunset from the Aventine Hill


It has the best view of the evening Rome. Take a walk in the Orange Garden and see the sunset.

10. Have a dinner in Trastevere


Take a walk from the Gardens to the Tiber and then cross the Ponte Sublicio bridge to get the Trastevere district — the most italian part of Rome, where the musicians play the music at the evenings. End your walk with the dinner in one of the restaurants here, order the vine and relax.

Bonus: Swim in the Trevi Fountain


If you don't want to end your day, get a taxi and go to the start of your rout. The police officers are little distracted in catching the "swimers" at night. But just in case be ready to pay the fine.
