Italy is undoubtedly among the most beautiful countries in Europe, and a fair amount of credit has to go to the incredible city of Rome.
Like any other popular tourist destination, Rome is known to enthrall its visitors not only with the grandeur of its architecture but also with its culture.
A trip to Rome is said to cost you quite an amount of money, but you really don’t have to shell out cash to enjoy the best of this magnificent city. Here are a few suggestions on how you can travel Rome on a budget.
Regardless of where you travel, budgeting and planning are always a prerequisite for all trips. Basics like accommodations, commuting and food have to be properly thought over before undertaking your journey.
Finding cheap accommodation is not a problem in Rome as you will find a lot of budget hotels, bed and breakfasts, and convents in and around Rome. It is reasonable to get an apartment if you are in a group but in case you are alone it is more affordable to find a hostel or B&B.
Winters in Rome can get chilly and windy, and you are bound to find the best of deals during this period.
After accommodations comes the food. You will find numerous cheap restaurants, canteens and snack outlets, which also in fact serve tastier food. Restaurants in and around major tourist sites are obviously expensive. A bread and breakfast place can really be a problem solver if you consider it.
When in Rome, you are bound to travel a lot. Traveling in Rome is easier on foot as many sits are located near each other, especially the breathtaking Vatican City tour. Rome also offers a subway system in case you are traveling across town. Renting a car is also an option, but bear in mind that parking in this city can get on your nerves. A better option is hiring a cab.
Face it that Rome can be very overwhelming and you would feel foolish to leave out any tourist site though you are eating through your budget. So, relax, take a deep breath and know that Rome isn’t going anywhere.
