Rome - Fiumicino
, 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 : )
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
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.
Don't talk to strangers if you are a female. I met two Italian men in
who helped me to find the way at first and kept on taking advantage of me afterwards!
exceeded all expectation even for a girl who doesn't like big cities. The historical buildings were so interesting and beautiful. Spend a couple of days there.
My wife and I visited
in June 2005, while staying at nearby Terracina. We considered our own little town enchanting, but soon conceded that Sperlonga was even more outrageously beautiful. We've seen much of Italy -- Sestriere, Rome, Pompeii, Trieste, Naples, Turin. All of them surprised us in their way, but nothing prepared me for the stunning magnificence of 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.
