Travel Tips for Rome
If you are in Rome for a limited time, try taking a hop-on, hop-off tourist bus to maximise your visit to the city’s most impressive sights. Rome can also be a little hectic during the summer months, so it’s worth considering the shoulder months of April, May, September and October, which are less busy and less expensive for visitors. It can be worth splashing out on a hotel in a great location, so you can walk to all of the key destinations. Be sure to indulge in the city’s vibrant food culture and eat plenty of delicious pasta in one of the many al fresco restaurants.
