Rome City is the city which has so much to offer to believe me if you have to prepare otherwise you will be lost with so much information when you will travel famous places are close to each other. You need at least a week to feel the city and understand the beautiful places.

I work on a cruise ship, so I used to go every week with a cruise tour to Rome City, and believe me check this out when cruises are coming to Rome because it will be so crowded that you will feel like you are in Mumbai.


The best part about traveling on a cruise ship is that you don’t have to worry about hotels or where to go. They plan everything for you, and you just have to sit on the bus. One tour guide will join you on this journey from a cruise ship and will explain a lot of things about the place you visit.

How to roam around Rome City

I traveled to Eternal City much time already. I will suggest you not to drive the car because you will be amazed by how many people travel to the capital of Italy.
Now you will think about Taxi, and you can take a Taxi, but I asked the price. It is expensive to travel by Taxi as well.

Colosseum Rome

Public Transport is a better option as it’s not expensive and Public Transport is connected well to the city. I will suggest you walk as much as you can because you will be amazed by how many places to see when you walk in the capital and the largest city in Italy. When we were traveling to roam with a cruise ship, we also used to walk around the whole day, the only time we used to take the bus to travel back to the Ship.

Best Time To Visit Rome City: April to June / September-October

The Italian capital is one of the busiest city in the world. You can travel to roam at any time of the year. April to June or September and October is the best time to visit the town, but it will be jam-packed this time of the year.

If you are planning to visit this time, I will suggest you book a Hotel or Hostel before you are booking your flights. Summertime will be sweltering and believe me when an Indian guy is saying it’s HOT !!! I was also in the town in the summer.

If you are in Rome for sure, you will visit Vatican City, and you will be in line for 1 or 2 hours minimum, and the summertime is not a good time. Please bring your water bottle with you as I paid 2 Euros for one small bottle.

Safty in Rome City

Rome City is not a place you have to worry about your safety, but pickpockets are normal anywhere in the world.

African bracelet scam

If you are an infamous place, then people will come to you and will try to become your friend as this happens with me every time in Pisa and Rome.

The bracelet scam is found all over Europe and is particularly common in Rome. It’s a peculiar but annoying racket that combines some friendly chat, a cheap African bracelet, and a guilt trip into paying money for it.

The bracelet scam is most common in Rome. These guys approach you with some friendly chat and will give you a cheap African bracelet. In return, they want a small amount of money from you.

How to Avoid the Scam

This Scam works totally on friendly human chat with minimal talk.

  • Hey man, how are you?
  • Cool smile! My friend.
  • Where are you from, my friend?
  • Hello! from Africa, my friend. You are my friend from which country?

Just Ignore this scammer as I do after my first encounter, and I paid 2 Euro and learned my lesson in the process.

It’s easy to say that Ignore them, but it is tough to ignore them.

Staying in Rome City

You will find every type of hotel and hostel in Rome. You can find a hostel or hotel in the city, but I will suggest you search a bit outside as you can save money and use it for roaming around in Rome.
Some Good Hostel in the town

When you are Hungry in Rome

restaurant in Rome city

While walking a lot in Rome, anyone can feel hungry. The place is full of restaurants, but most of the restaurants charge over price in the main areas. I will suggest you eat in the not so famous area. If you are hungry and don’t want to walk far from the places where you are roaming then just look around you will find Pizza Slices all over the places they call it “Pizza al taglio.”

Pizza al taglio

Pizza al taglio is an attractive option to eat fast and walk again. Ice creams are famous as well, especially near the famous fountain area. You will see everyone wearing Icecream all over the town.

What is Must bring things with you.
