5 Things You Can Do In Rome For FREE

The Vatican Museums


The Vatican Museums are free every on the last Sunday of every month from 8.30 am – 2 pm. Although, last admission is at 12.30 pm so be sure to arrive on time if you want to take advantage of this freebie!

Park Gianicolo

For panoramic views of Rome, head to Park Gianicolo! Park’s are one of the more common ‘freebie’ things you can do in any city, but what makes Park Gianicolo particularly great for people on a budget (especially families) is that they also have things like a free puppet show daily on top of the stunning views.

Tour of Basilica

Sky Tours Rome offers free hour-long tours of Saint Peter’s Basilica each day from Monday to Saturday, starting at 9am.

Estate Romana

Come here during the main summer festival, Estate Romana, and you’ll find lots of free outdoor performances! These include concerts, film showings, art displays, dancers, and more – most of which are free to the public.

The Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna make up the longest staircase in Europe, leading up to the church Trinita dei Monti. This is also just a really cool place to hang out with lots of students, artists, and shoppers hanging around.
