Day 1 in Rome was really about 2 things: Pasta and People Watching at the Piazza Di Spagna (Spanish Steps).  We had arrived in Rome the night before and didn’t want to commit to an overly involved itinerary for our first full day in Rome. It’s so much easier to gently ease into things and to first get one’s bearings. 
I knew visiting Vatican city was a possibility for Day 1,  so I wore a midi skirt. In case you didn’t know, Vatican city, specifically the church and to some extent the museum have a strict dress code (covered knees and shoulders).
Long lines at Pastificio especially around lunch time. Cheap and tasty at 4euros.
