The Best of Rome in the Best of Options

Rome, the eternal city, is a place where time seems to have stopped, a place immune to modernity. Rome is a city to live with all the senses. When you walk through its streets and observe its monuments, it seems to have come out of a film from the 50s, it sounds like an accordion, all dressed in white marble, smelling of mozzarella, tomato and basil from the many pizzerias.Rome is a city that gets into your heart and leaves you speechless.

In this post we want to give some tips for those visiting Rome for the first time and don’t want to spend a lot of money.

When to visit Rome

Rome can be visited all year long. Winter is mild even though in recent years it has been changing a little. Autumn, and especially spring, are the best times of the year , the climate is pleasant and nature contributes to giving a magical touch to parks and gardens. Summer is very hot and the visit to the city can be quite arduous and tiring. With the Rome Private Tour in 2 Days  you can explore more.

 

The periods to avoid are Christmas, Easter and the first of May as the prices increase considerably.

From the airport to the city

In Rome there are two airports Fiumicino (FCO) and Ciampino (CIA) in both there is a good transport service to the city center. If you arrive with a low-cost company you will probably arrive at Ciampino .Fiumicino is 30 km from Rome, while Ciampino is 15 km away.

  • From Ciampino, the cheapest way to get to the center is to take a Schiaffini company bus to Rome Termini for 3.90. From Rome Fiumicino the most practical way to avoid unnecessary headaches is to take a shuttle bus to Rome Termini which costs € 8 return.
  • We do not recommend buying a ticket on the plane as it is more expensive. We do not even recommend using certain company as the staff is very unpleasant and on the return 99% of the time you lose the bus and you have to wait for the next one due to bad organization.

Getting around in Rome

Public transport is good. A bit chaotic given that in our country getting in and out of a vehicle is a rather difficult undertaking; with a few nudges (not very violent) here and there you can get away with it. The integrated metro / bus ticket costs € 6 per day and is enough to get anywhere.

Rome is not a dangerous city, but like in all the big cities, you have to be careful of pickpockets that never go on vacation.
