Hello Beauties, welcome to my first Rome post. As mentioned in my previous post, I took a short break to explore the city of Rome. With off days at hand and a friendly invitation from a friend who lives there, I couldn’t say no to that. Oh what a beautiful city Rome is!! I was in total awe all the time. Every nook and cranny ignited an excitement. There’s so much history and so much to see. A very artistic place.
*How to get to Rome*
This, of course, depends where you are coming from in the first place. If you are in Europe, you might have the option of driving, getting the train, or flying to Rome. If you are coming from further afield, you will be limited to flying. In any case, flying is the easiest way to get to Rome, and there are 2 airports that serve the city, both of which are served by taxis and public transport options to take you into the centre of Rome. Of course, if you wanted to go for the ultimate luxury travel experience, you might even look up things like how much does a private jet cost to buy, or maybe just rent for this particular trip, to see if this could be an option for you to get there in serious comfort!
*Place to see when in Rome*
While there’re the main tourist attraction places, every corner in the city draws you in. -From the numerous boutiques, restaurants, corner shops and ice cream parlours, there’re so much to see and do. The first obvious place people go to is the Colosseum which is so grand. Second is the Vatican museums which is beyond amazing (nip into St Peter’s Basilica from the Sistine Chapel as well). Then there’re Fontana Di Trevi (The Trevi Fountain), Castel sant d’angelo, the spanish steps, the list goes on. Just make sure you’ve enough money on you. Ha!!
*What to pack*
With any holiday, comfort should be at the forefront of your mind when it comes to packing. This is my second time flying to Italy and the weather there is insanely hot when its summer. So if you’re visiting around that season, pack light. Majority of their streets isn’t heels friendly so flats and sneakers are your friend. If you’re an expert in walking in heels, then by all means please knock yourself out.
*Don’t be a tourist*
I hear someone asking, “what the hell is that supposed to mean Missy?” Lol!! This simply means don’t look clueless. Even if you’re, just don’t look it, because the hustle in the streets of Rome is on another level. There is someone on every corner trying to sell or persuading you to do something. The first rule my tour guide told me was, “remember everyone is a thief, including myself.”
Thanks much for your visits and meaningful comments. Have a blessed week.
