2. Indulge in Bed and Breakfast

There are cities that are worth splurging in luxury or in safety, but it’s pleasantly surprising to vouch for the fact that in Rome, Bed & Breakfast is still a good viable option. The rooms are astonishingly large and the owners prove to be friendlier than some of your friends. The give the best rundown of what to do and see in Rome, and you get to meet friends/ room mates along the way who would come from different parts of Asia. Most often, these B&Bs are located at the heart of the city’s action packed streets and hidden finds. Best part of it, it is half the price!

3. Roam around Rome

There are a lot of travel styles depending on your companion, preference, and mood. But in Rome, the beautiful streets and amazing people cannot stress enough the importance of seeing the city on foot. This city was built and meant to be roamed around and enjoyed thru long leisure walks, and it still holds true today. Every landmark offers an opportunity to be discovered with only a few meters of walking. Every good place is just a stone’s throw away. Best time to roam around is at night because Rome just lights up with people and parties.

4. Please More Pizza and Pasta

There’s a perfectly good reason to indulge on food in Rome. The pizza and pasta are heavenly. Your perception of how a pizza and pasta should taste like will be completely defunct once you have some in Rome. Even the most basic of orders, carbonara or pepperoni pizza – they still can smack your taste buds with some inspiration. So much new basic pasta and pizza flavors to try out.

5. Discover Glorious Art

Spending a lot of time checking out museums from city to city, you would think that you’d get cynical with the next one because everything seems like it has been done and it has been exhibited already. And then, you find out about Rome. Truly, nothing compares to the amount of art that’s mind-blowing here in Rome. From the Vatican City museum down to the art that you can see on the streets of Rome, the art scene in Italy is refreshing to see and to have them explained by passionate locals make it even better.
