Reviews of tourists in Rome. Tips for vacations – 2022
Rome – always be on the lookout. Second time in Rome, flew in from Cyprus (permanent mzh). Those who want to visit the capital and save on travel by public transport, I immediately recommend to study the specifics. To understand where to buy tickets, how to use, pay fines, etc.. I say at once, it’s cheaper and more convenient to take an Uber or any other cab, so as to avoid problems and incomprehensible penalties. Italians, as well as any gypsies trying to cheat everywhere (got used to it living on the island). Always check the bill in a restaurant, etc. I repeat, have long been accustomed to such service, and could not normally rest and relax.

A lot of historical sites, art, religious values Huge problems with transport at night (including cabs). Little information about the possibility of buying tickets for public transport, as well as shuttle service to the airport. Terrible service from Bookings. We had a late check-in, which we mentioned to Bookings office repeatedly. Late check-in was exacerbated by weather conditions and the plane landed significantly late. As a result, we ended up at the point of settlement at 3am in the rain. The owner of the apartment in Rome, The Old Civetta of Trastevere, was unable to automatically open the doors due to a broken auto shutter. When asked by Bucking “did we check in?”, a negative answer was sent, after which Bucking posted that we had refused to check in and would have a fine. No technical or other accompaniment or support was provided. So we ended up spending the night in the rain without the provision of already paid for reserved lodging (((((((

Vacation at Villa Borghese in Rome! Not so long ago ended the oy vacation that I had the great pleasure of spending this year in Rome. After Moscow I can say that I liked it madly, there is something fascinating in this city, something real and ancient at the same time. I saw a lot and visited every place that I had the opportunity to visit, so it gives me the great pleasure to share my impressions. I fell into a special relaxation as I strolled through the shady parks to the Villa
I got the impression that people on the trip to Rome, and thought only about food. Even the man with the pizza, which the seagull took away. they felt sorry for. Of course the city is not perfectly clean, but it is worth looking at the beauty around you, not the trash cans.

The Appian Way in Rome impressed me! What I remember most about Rome was this trip along the Appian Way, “the queen of all roads.” I will remember this hike for many years, although I had no idea that it could make such a deep impression on me. For me, it is an unusual place for Rome, paved with large gray stones, on which, in some places, there are traces of those ancient wheels. Along the way, I saw ancient tombs, beautiful columns, all reeking of some mystery, a place of
The beauty In Rome was only once and I have a lot of impressions from this city. In fact I am amazed as people in ancient Rome lived, because it imposes to us all the ancient centuries, wherever you look there are architectural sights from which you can’t hide anywhere. I found this arch just walking around Rome with my lover. From afar it can be unclear that you approach such a beautiful site, because it stands on an open area, but by the number of people you can tell at once that all the same
I was disappointed with almost everything, the food, the service, the preservation of attractions, garbage, cheeky sticky peddlers.
A week in Rome was a wasted time. I wanted to run away on the second day. Where have we got – the only thought that does not leave my head.
On the second day the phone was stolen in the subway on the line between Termini and Spagna. We had a mini safe in a miserable hotel and all valuables was left there.
Before that we were twice in northern Italy, Rappalo, Portafino, San Frutozzo – heaven and earth. This is a different Italy, where you want to go back.
And I fell for the fishing rod, just read the rave reviews with ratings of 9-10 and did not notice a rating of less than 6. I should have.
Ok – nice, the evening spent near the Castle of Angels and the evening Vatican City – St. Peter’s Square.
PS . All the beautiful things in Rome, almost everything belongs to the Vatican, protected and preserved by it, so if someone reminds me of well-kept Papal villas Gardens, Parks and Churches – I immediately say – and Rome is not involved?
It’s true. We have visited Italy 5 times, but Rome was very unpleasantly surprised. Now it is just the second day of our stay, and already want to run away from here.
Unusual Rome – the places where tourists do not reach Rome is one of the richest in the sights of the city. Here are well known to all of the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain. But in every city there are no less interesting places that tourists know nothing about. So if you have already fulfilled your “must have” list, we suggest you get to know Rome as other travelers do not know it.
“Talking Statues” The eternal city is famous for its magnificent sculptures created by the greatest masters. But Rome is also home to some of the less noteworthy
Good afternoon everyone. if you have chosen Rome for your trip – congratulations! There are so many epithets to describe Rome and it’s not enough. Rome is an open air museum.

I have been to Rome more than ten times and I will visit every time if possible. Rome must be understood, one of the few biblical cities that have survived to this day. Not without reason they say that everything in Rome is from the whole world, but there is no Rome in the whole world.
