Images Of Rome

There aren't many cities in the world like Roma. No matter which way you turn you set your eyes on imposing monuments, dramatic statues or lavish fountains. Walking around the streets today it is easy to envisage what it would've been like centuries ago when crowds thronged to the Colossuem, Caesar's foot soldiers paroled the streets and everyone was decked in sandals. Once darkness falls it isn't as lively as some other European cities, but if you don't find a bar which gets your pulse racing don't worry - the city looks twice as breathtaking at night.

    Rome trip

    Rome is an amazing city! Crowded of tourists even during low season then avoid high seasons for sure.

    Insider Tip:Book everything prior to visit to avoid queues. Vaticano museum is one good example once I spent 1 hour to buy my ticket in a low season. If you buy tickets on the internet you can skip the queue and just enter. If you are planning to travel to other Italy cities, book your ticket in advance as well to save money.

    Must visit for all those who love history

    I would highly recommend a visit to all those people who loves history and loves to travel. Rome is the best place where you can see some of the temples of Greek gods . I would highly recommend places like Roman forum and Colosseum. They are just a beauty for sight-seeing.

    Rome by a week

    First about food, try to find places where locals eat, plan them ahead, cause most of the places, near tourists attractions are worthless and expensive, if its possible, get tickets on the museums and galleries ahead online, it saves hours. Try to use metro, instead of a bus, Rome has insane traffic delays, to go for the airport , use train, fastest, stable and defenately worth it, bus its a gamble and private cabs, well, gamble, taxi is not preferable, since again, lot of traffic.

    Insider Tip:From personal expirience, get an offline maps for your smartphone gps, paper map might be tricky for unexpirienced travelers. Borghese gallery needs to get an appoiment in advance, so try to get a ticket online few weeks before, same goes to the museum of Vatican. Try to get some audioguides for your phone, or if you visit museums and galleries, which most of them arent national, try to get an audioguide, cause most of the times i've stuck watching whole museum without single english tab on the wall.
