How should I plan my Roman Vacation?
There are tons of things to do and places to see in Rome. So planning your activities in advance is a good idea. With so many (seemingly endless) attractions, it can be easy to accidentally miss out, especially if your trip to Rome is a short one.
Make a list of the Rome tours and attractions you and your travel companions would like to see, and try to plan days around attractions that are close together. Many can look like they are close on a map, when they are actually far apart. Grouping together your tours can help you not squander your day walking between different locations.
If you're not good about planning, take advantage of the different Rome tours you can sign up for that will plan days out for you. In some cases tour guides will pick you up from your hotel and take you from attraction to attraction. These tours are especially helpful for first time Rome travelers. Tour guides can often tell you things and show you sites you might have otherwise missed. A ride in a tour bus can also be a lot more comfortable than walking, especially on hot summer days.
