Things To Remember
*How to get to Italy?
You’ll be flying into Italy Airport.
From the airport, we took the bus to Center Rome, (at the train station), it took a good 45-60 minutes to destination. We arrive at our first overnight stay, a small walking distance from the metro station.
*How to get around?
If you want to explore and discover as many hidden alleys and special places as possible, then walking is the best option. Wear good shoes
*When is the best time to travel to Italy
For us, Off-season is always the best, but lately, planes are always full !!
*Book your hotel somewhere central.
I am not putting the price of the hotel or B&B etc. because it will change due to the season. But the prices were really reasonable.
****If you can buy your tickets online, before leaving home. For the Vatican, we order our places without paying( if you show up, then you pay for your tickets)
****Depending on where you are in the city, make sure to find out the time the metro will close.
From where we were all the station stairs were closed, taxi here we come!!
****For your taste bud, lots of pastries and don’t forget that their “Hot chocolate” is really tick. Not like at home !!
