Rome - Fiumicino
Don't talk to strangers if you are a female. I met two Italian men in
e who helped me to find the way at first and kept on taking advantage of me afterwards!
e is the most beautiful, busy, romantic city you can find. Do not miss it. Take the tours and walk as much as you can, there is so much to do and learn about it. Miss this city and risk dying unfufilled. A place designed for lovers and lovers of travel.
e -- dirty, expensive, and crowded. It is the eternal city and there is so much to see and explore. And that is what every owner of a hostel, hotel, restaurant and every other business serving tourists knows. Convenient it is that most hostels and hotels are situated close to the Termini train station. It must be the cheapest area in Rome, because it is one of the most smelly, dirty, and -- for tourists, carrying their cameras and wallets -- unsafe areas. Plus, coming out of Termini, walking your first meters in the city, you will see homeless sleeping, be asked for money and cigarettes. The prices in Rome -- well, it is Rome after all, so every tourist is paying for it, but do yourself a big favor when you stay at a some hotel or hostel. Ask around what rate other guests pay, because you will be judged by your wallet and look by receptionists at many places at a difference of up to 60 €uro for a single room. Some tourists just pay everything.
e is fantastic!!! The trevi Fountain is incredible!! I thought it was smaller but is simply fascinating, I could be watching it for hours without a problem, the colosseo, the pantheon, every single piece of Rome is incredible! It's easy to reach everything by la Metro and the people are helpful.
e is a fantastic, brilliant city but one that, like most large and popular cities, offers traps for the unwary. There are lots of pickpockets (and they are very good at their jobs), but just pay attention and don't flaunt your valuables. On the plus side, Rome has a very low serious crime rate for such a large city and is generally safe (with all the usual provisos). You can also be ripped off (however, not as badly as I've been ripped off in London, Paris, or New York) and pay too much for bad food but that is usually only if you eat at tourist spots and don't wander off the tourist path (it doesn't take much wandering -- usually just a street away). Eat at local places, drink your coffee standing up, and generally try to get the feel of the place and you will have a much much better time. People are not mean or pushy, but nor will they fawn and grovel at your feet -- Italians (Romans especially, who can be a bit old fashioned) people respond to politeness and attempts to at…
e, yes it is very traffic-laden. But the Colosseum, Palatino, Via del Corso, Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain are worth it! I hit Rome during the big Saldi and I bought tons of clothes for very good prices! Trevi Fountain was so beautiful at night. I just sat there and spoke with the locals. I learned a lot of Italian that night. Plus, being serenaded by a charming Italian man is always a plus! Dirt, dirt, dirt, who cares? There is plenty of dirt in every American city as well. After all, they are cities! But Italian dirt is so much more charming, LOL : )
