Lazio Comments

Rome is a fantastic city to live in, but from a tourist perspective -- especially if you aren't comfortable with a city that is as chaotic as Rome -- it might not be so great. I myself hated Rome the first time I visited, but came back and looked at things from a new perspective and saw all the great things it has to offer, and now live here. There are also numerous opportunities to meet people from all over the world all over the city if you are social and talk to people. The Spanish steps are a great place for tourists to hang out, listen to some locals play the guitar and sing, and meet new people. Rome is not a dangerous city if you don't make yourself a target. That means not wandering around with a map in your hand or wearing obviously touristy clothing (fanny packs for instance). Also, attempt to have an air of confidence about where you are even if you're totally lost. You can still ask for directions, but don't make it obvious that you're lost. As far as Romans not being…
Sperlonga was the most beautiful and peaceful place I have been. I hope to return in a few months with the hope of moving there permanently.
Don't talk to strangers if you are a female. I met two Italian men in Roma who helped me to find the way at first and kept on taking advantage of me afterwards!
This city is amazing. Theres so much to see, I could have happily stayed there for months. Make sure you're wearing trousers and shoes however when you visit St Peters, guards in FBI disguise snatch you from the crowd and send you away in the typical Italian way. I find the Italians extremely rude and unwelcoming; however they didnt spoil my time in Roma. I guess I would be like them if my city was invaded all year round by the hoards of amazed tourists. Strangley enough I also found Rome to be the worst place I've ever been to for pizza, or indeed anyfood. The prices were sky high, the service was rude and even mean and the food was awful. I obviously had a bad time of it when looking for food but I would suggest Rome is not the place for good food.
Sermoneta is more beautiful than any town in Tuscany, yet has only a few tourists. It cannot stay that way for long.
Roma is historic. Act like a local, keep your valuables hidden, and don't walk round with a map. There are pickpockets and thieves. Watch out. And if you hate your pension or hostel, change it. There are hundreds of others. Don't be intimidated by the pushy owners. I found Rome to be the pushiest city I have ever visited in terms of locals. Perhaps someone needs to remind the Italians that without tourists their economy wouldn't be that good.
