If you are planning to make a trip to the capital of Italy in the coming months I have good news for you, as throughout this article I will give you some tips or tips to travel to Rome with which among other things you also You will be able to save some eurillo.
Tips for visiting Rome
In the eternal city there are a lot of churches and cathedrals in which the stop is almost mandatory. Well, these sites can only be entered if you wear long pants and shoulders covered. In the case of being a woman they will not let you in if you do not wear the skirt to the knee at least. In the Vatican it is where stricter they are with this; many people have to go to their house for this reason after having done several hours of queue.
Rome is not a dangerous place, but it is true that there are many petty thefts and robberies, especially to clueless tourists. Where you have to be most careful is in the subway and at peak times, since pickpockets usually take advantage of the crowds. But not only for thefts you will have to worry, are the tourists scams also very frequent, especially in the places near the Termini station and the airport.
The best thing you can do if you want to really get to know Rome is to walk everywhere, apart from the fact that you will avoid possible scams because this city hides a wonderful place in every corner. Do not forget to bring water with you because in summer it is very hot and of course comfortable shoes. And be careful because the traffic in Italy is usually chaotic so you should go with a good eye when you cross the street.
Another thing that I advise you is to book your accommodation well in advance, because when summer approaches, everything is almost complete and prices skyrocket. If you are looking for something cheap, the best thing you can do is stay in the Termini area, but if you prefer to spend more money, book your hotel in the downtown area (where most of the tourist sites are), and at least you will avoid the walk there.
But the best trick to save money that I can give you is to take the Roma Pass, which is a card that includes public transport and entrance to museums. Apart from that you can enter the museums for a cheaper price you will also skip the queues, which can be horrible.
As you already know in Italy you eat very well, but you have to know how to choose the place well. I recommend you go to one of these restaurants:
- Pane e salame
- La Pergola
- Pizzeria Baffeto
- Carlo Menta
Obviously there are more places in Rome where you eat well, but since I have not had time to go to all because I recommend these 5 for now.
What is the best time to travel to Rome?
The best times to visit Rome are in autumn and spring, since the city is not so crowded and it is not as hot as in summer. If you have the option of being able to travel whenever you want, I recommend you so in these 2 seasons of the year. In winter it is also an option but it is a bit colder and there is a better chance of rain.
If you have planned to travel at Easter, I would take it out of my head since there are equal or more people than in summer.
