Although, if you must visit during the peak season, you can still expect to have a wonderful time in Rome!

Tips for travelling through Rome and Visiting Attractions

It is recommended to travel around the city by foot. By doing this, you wont miss anything and will be afforded the luxury to go at your own leisure and convenience.

By virtue of the countless of places to see in Rome, it is pertinent to make a list beforehand of the places you truly desire to visit and tick them as you go along when you actually visit the area.

Put the most important ones first on the list and the remainder can be set at the bottom of the list, so you can prioritize the time you allocate to each attraction you decide to visit.

Without a plan, there is the possibility of  forgetting or missing out on some of the most interesting places you want to see,  especially if you have a limited amount of time in the country.

Customarily, a good idea would be to book a guided tour as these can be expedient in allowing you to see things and places you wouldn’t normally see by yourself. Notably, this guided tours can be arranged at some of the hotels tourist frequent, with also the convenience of being picked up at that location. Furthermore, these tours come with s certain level of comfort for the visitors, including lunch and dinner.

The tour that we recommend for your Rome Trip is the GoRome Explorer Pass. We actually bought this pass and it’s the best decision we have made for our trip to Rome.

With the GoRome Pass you get to visit all the major attractions in Rome at a reduced price, 47% less than the gate price. And you can also make use of the ‘Hop on Hop off’ bus as you go to different attractions in the city.

With the GoRome Pass, you will not miss out on any of the major attractions in Rome. You will have access you all the places you have read in books, seen in movies, and majestic places you’ve never seen or heard about before.

Some of these places included in the GoRome Pass are the infamous Coliseum, the Trevi Fountain, The Roman Forum, and The Pantheon – The oldest church in the world.

The coliseum is one of the most popular tourist attraction in the entire Europe.

The coliseum is the ancient stadium of the Roman empire where numerous gladiator battles occurred, among other events. Also, the actual movie the Gladiator was filmed at the Coliseum.

Due to it’s historic appeal, the Coliseum receives the greatest amount of visitors (over 7 million visitors per year) compared to the other attractions around Rome.

The Roman Forum is a civic center of Ancient Rome whereby citizens met and held discussion regarding  religious, politics and economic activities.

It would be more useful as aforementioned to hire a tour guide which provide more details related to the specific site you intend to visit. You can decide to take a tour with the guide or go on your own. I recommend phoning prior to the anticipated date to see what the opening hours as it varies throughout the year.
