City Review: Rome, Italy
Rome, Italy (arguably one of the most famous cities in the world) has a lot of historical sites i wanted to see. I found that like any major city with tourist attractions the marketing comes at you left and right and is a bit overwhelming. I found this to be the case at many tourist spots around Rome (Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Vatican). The city isn't too large so it is manageable to see most things within a long weekend.
Insider Tip:-Be careful of the cab drivers at the bus station/train station. They tried charging me 70 Euro to go two blocks -Don't eat near the Vatican (a coke will cost me 9 Euro) -If you go to the Colosseum buy the advanced ticket through one of the sight seeing bus tour companies (the lines are horrible and buying in advance can save you a 3 hour wait) -No need for the audio guide at the Colosseum. -Be careful of scammers (guys giving flowers away for free, people posing as tourists offering to take your pic)
