Rome Travel Tips & Guide

How to Get Tickets?

Tickets to any attraction in Rome can be bought either on the spot or online. It's far more recommended to purchase tickets online though. One reason is because you'll own the privilege to skip the long lines, especially if you're going in weekends. Second reason, you might find interesting offers that will grant you discounts.

How To Get Around?

Getting around Rome is easy, you can take any means of public transportation such as buses, subways, and cars. But if you're looking for the most budget-friendly and convenient public transportation, we highly recommend you to take Public Transit Bus service that runs 24 hours with broad city route coverage.

What Should I Wear?

Except if you're going to religious sites, such as Vatican (where you should wear modest clothes covering knees and shoulders), you are free to wear anything you're comfortable with. But you should always bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes, especially if you're planning to walk for a long time.

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.

How To Get There?

There are many ways to Rome, it rings especially true since Rome is reachable by any public transportations. Rome currently have two main international airports, Fiumicino International Airport and Ciampino International Airport with regular flights to Rome. You can also go by trains or ferries if you go from nearby cities or countries.

Additional Info

If you happen to bring your own car to Rome, there are many parking spots available for free if you need some rest along the way. 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. Learning a few important and useful Italian words can be helpful suring your trip. The plug types in Rome and Italy are type F and L. Type F has two round pins, while type L has three round pins.
