Rome City Guide

 

Rome was my favorite city to visit when I was abroad back in 2015 and I would love to go back. It was my favorite city because of all the history behind it. It is not a commercialized city yet, and there are not many forms of public transportation like there are in New York which meant you had to walk everywhere. 

Bring a pair of your comfortable walking shoes for this trip! I also recommend always bringing light layers – It was hot when I was in Rome in November, but at night it got chilly.

I was lucky because my two best friends from home were studying abroad in Rome so they had 2 full months to learn the lay of the land before I came to visit for the weekend so I was able to see A LOT my first day there.
