See the Sites– I made stops to the Spanish Steps, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, and the Colosseum.
Explore the City – walk the neighborhoods
Eat – Fresh pasta, seafood, pizza, and gelato! Let the foodie in you indulge in delicious Italian cuisine.
Party – with fellow travelers and locals. If you stay at a hostel they usually have nights where they take travelers out to bar hop and hit the club scene. Your hotel concierge can give you some recommendations as well.
Roma Travel Tips:
- Rome is a walkable city, but if you want to use the metro the Roma Pass is awesome. The Roma Pass is good for 3 days of unlimited use on the trains and buses, and you get free admission into two museums or sites and reduced admission into others (I used it to get into the Colosseum). Roma Pass can be used at more than 40 monuments, museums and archaeological sites and ofter allows you to skip the long lines. You can purchase one at Tourist Information Points in Rome including Termini, Fiumincino Airport, travel agencies, hotels, and news stands.
- Be sure to keep your belongs close to your body, don’t leave the zipper of your purse or backpack exposed to pickpockets, leave valuables lock in your hotel safe or locker of your hostel room.
- Remember that Vatican Museums are closed on Sundays. I totally spaced out on that during the planning phase of the trip, so I only had the chance to visit St. Peter’s Square because my flight landed too late in the day on Saturday to make it to the Vatican.
- Keep a water bottle with you to stay hydrated. There are lots of fresh water fountains around the city to refill your bottle.
