Will I Need a Guide?
Hiring a guide for your whole stay in Rome is not needed since it's very possible to stroll around the city and visit the tourist attractions relying on guidebooks, travel brochures, road signs, ang Google map. However, hiring a guide for a day or two when you're visiting specific tourist attractions, such as Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, can make your travel easier since they're huge and complex sites. Entering the Colosseum without a guide is a great choice but if you wish to see the Colosseum underground and third ring areas, you can only enter with a guide. We also recommend booking a guided tour for special occasions in Rome instead of a daily tour, such as night time tour at the Colosseum. Other than that, exploring the city on your own is not a bad choice at all.

However, avoid parking your car in deserted areas since most car thefts are common in such areas. Don't accept anything before asking how much it costs. Don't ride taxis that offer fixed price. Even though the drivers might say it's cheaper, metered fares are actually cheaper. Bring more cash and don't rely on credit cards since local shops, especially the ones on the streets usually only accept cash.
