Visiting Rome by foot
Visiting Rome by foot? You can! It’s not something crazy if you love taking strolls or you just simply do not want to take public transport. Try visiting Rome by foot.
Visiting Rome by foot is a simple, free and healthy way to admire it in its full beauty.
Obviously you will need some planning.
It’s always good to have a bus ticket in your pocket in case of problems like bad weather, and it’s good to know the operating hours of the public transport. It’s good to have comfortable shoes, a digital camera to take marvellous photos and a tourist map with the monuments (which you can download from the Internet). It’s also good to organize your trip a little earlier and to mark your itinerary. It’s good to inform yourself about good dining places so you can halt a little bit and rest while eating.
Rome is an amazing city and also perfect to visit it by foot because you can really admire the Roman life and monuments that you will find on every corner.
