3 Tips When in Rome

  1. Get a tour guide 
  • Although you might already know a lot about the place, the tour guides know every last detail about everything. It is their job to know what they are talking about.
  • Tour guides in Rome are very nice and will usually teach you things about their culture, and they will also probably teach you common Italian vocabulary which will come in handy later on.

  1. Ask Locals
  • If you come from America, you will know that most people do not like to be bothered, and so you don’t usually ask people for their advice, but in Rome, the locals love to help.
  • Locals are also very happy to have a conversation with anyone.

  1. Don’t always trust the internet
  • It is ok to use the internet to find popular places, or recommended places in Rome, but the internet is not always right.
  • Many times when I was in Rome, the internet was wrong about restaurant popularity and business hours of local shops and restaurants.
  • This relates back to asking the locals. For the most part, ask the locals, or if you are staying in a hotel, ask the employees in the lobby.
