Rome - Fiumicino

has more than its fair share of duds when it comes to hostels.
Rome 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 (
ns especially, who can be a bit old fashioned) people respond to politeness and attempts to at…
, 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 : )
was just amazing. It was on my list of must-see cities, and it fulfilled every expectation. The usual tourist haunts should be visited and won't disappoint -- Trevi Fountain, Colosseo, and Vatican City. For something a little more off the crowded track, try Appia Antica, the ancient acquaduct, and the catacombs. We took the "Archeo-bus" out there and loved it. It ended up being our favorite day. Maybe we got lucky, but everything we ate was awesome! The food was so good. Just try to find something a little off the tourist track and you won't be disappointed. The pizza was outstanding and so cheap. Picnics were great too -- just find a deli and order some meat and cheese. Overall, everyone should visit Rome -- you won't regret seeing the "Eternal City."
Rome is the most beautiful, busy,
ntic 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.
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
. 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.
