So this is my final segment. We arrived by train to Rome. It was freezing and raining. We had an evening Colesseum Tour booked. Even though the weather was bad this tour was amazing. We had the place to ourselves. I highly recommend the evening tour. The next day was absolutely beautiful. Sun was shinning and weather was perfect. We walked around the entire day. We visited so many sights. I have to say I loved the Trevi Fountain. It was beautiful. We even went back at night so I could see it with the lights on. I didn’t think I was going to like Rome but I think it was my favorite and I am not a city person but I think Rome is what I imagined Italy to be.
Final thoughts and tips for any newbies.
I bought a travelon bag and it was perfect. I got the messenger bag and it fit my umbrella and even a raincoat. It locks but is still easy to get in and out of. It was perfect and safe. I did buy a money belt but only wore when traveling from city to city.
People said to bring toilet paper so I did but I never came across one “toilet” without paper.
Travel was very simple from place to place. Don’t stress about trains and or flying.
When you go to a cafe they charge more when you sit and drink your cappuccino.
Definitely should have bought warmer clothes. It was unseasonably cold and I was not prepared.
When dining, waiter will not bring you a check you have to ask for it. They feel it’s rude to bring the check. I didn’t know this lol.
Well that’s all I can think of. Thanks again to everyone on this forum that helped me plan this trip. It was a blast.
