Why was paul going to rome when he got shipwrecked?

Paul was headed to Rome, because he appealed to Caesar. He was initially imprisoned because the Jews made complaint against him. God told him that he was to be a witness before the Gentiles and Kings and magistrates, he took the opportunity (because he had Roman citizenship) to appeal to Caesar (Nero). Which meant that he had to appear in his presence.

Acts 26:31 And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.

Acts 26:32 Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar.
