Traveling Italy Questions

As I have stated in previous posts, my husband and I will be traveling to Italy in the summer of 2018.  We are beyond thrilled.  The flight and hotel are booked.  We are staying less than a mile away from the Trevi Fountain and Colosseum.

Since I have started blogging, I’ve noticed lots of traffic from individuals in other countries (even those from Italy).  So, I am asking so kindly for some advice, tips, and help.  Furthermore, I promise to mention your comments and recommendations here once we visit.  I have done much research in the past few months, but I trust locals more than a few ads on the computer.  Sure, I know how to dress in the churches and simple Italian phrases to get me by, but I want to know about the hidden tips, best food places, and what everyone should see on their first trip to Rome.

So…I have 5 days in Italy.  One day for Florence and one day in the Vatican.  The other three days are completely devoted to Rome.  Here are my questions that I’m hoping you as my reader will help me out:

  1. Where are the best places to eat in Rome?  You know…the places the locals actually go and are not filled with tourists.                        tourists
  2. What are the absolute must see sites in Rome (or around) and Florence?       florence
  3. What should every new traveler experience during their Italian getaway?         Rome_animated_intro
  4. Any hidden tips or help when visiting the Vatican?                 St.-Peters-Basilica-Vatican-City
  5. What is something you wish tourists knew and what helps a tourist blend in as much as possible?                                                          tourist gif

 

As always, thank you for your help folks.  Your input helps us all when traveling abroad!

  1. Our trip to Rome and Tuscany in 2011 holds so many wonderful memories!! I did not do as many blog posts as I should have and probably should dig up a few more memories! We really liked Rick Steves guide book to follow some of his recommended walks to help explore the highlights of Rome while discovering hidden gems along the way. (Eg night walk by the fountains and squares) — and we spent a whole day touring the Forum, Coloseum and Palatine Hill with a private guide who was amazing, as my family has several history buffs and these sites are overflowing with stories! Rome is one of my favorite cities in the world — you are going to love it!
