6 Ways to Make your Visit to Rome Fantastic

The grand mythology, the thematic novels, controversial movies and the promise of love, Rome is a rollercoaster ride without any seat belts. Up close, the still-in-time piazzas, churches, chapels, the Vatican and the brilliance that is in the air, is truly the soul of Rome.

It does take more time to trip planning to Rome than it takes to go anywhere else- blame the adrenaline, the heavy (soon to be light) wallet or the sky-high expectations!

So at last, you have your tickets ready, your accommodation reserved and that hourly itinerary which is kept on top of your luggage! But Rome is more than what your plans can hold. Take a quick scan to get pointers on how to make the most of your visit to Rome!

1. Buy ‘Skip-the-line’ Tickets
Most of the tourist attractions in Rome come with long queues and boring waiting time. Ditch the waiting monotony and grab a ‘Skip-the-line’ pass which is a choice at many attractions including the Vatican Museum. The Coliseum which has the most dreaded wait time is a piece of cake if you enroll with a tour!

2. Take a Food Tour

01375
Rome without exploring the cuisine is simply not Rome. The markets, the local secrets and the international favorites all are a part of the Rome Food Tour and for a first timer, this is not a must-do but a necessity!

3. Start Early
Yes, the attractions are worth every minute in the wait line, but for those who know better, simply start the day early! Visit the place a few minutes before the opening time and Viola! Easy entry, better view!

To add to that, you get to see the city before all the tourists have taken to the streets- with the beautiful mornings that glow every inch of Rome.

4. Graduate at the Gladiator School
Gladiator fans- bring out the warrior in you at the Gladiator School or the ‘GruppoStorico Romano’ in Rome. Get trained by the members of the Historic Group of Rome for 2 hours and learn how to combat- a pretty neat trick even in modern times! Going all out to offerold-Rome ambience, including the costume and the gear- the Gladiator School is by far, one of the fun things to do in Rome.

5. Vespa Tour
Vespa is a culture in Rome. Walking is fun, but Vespa is simply style! The cool Vespa Tours in Roam offers a rare glimpse into the city’s forgotten and popular spots all while you ride on a part of history itself! Pose like Audrey Hepburn in the Roman Holiday and the pic is sure to get you a couple of likes on Instagram!

6. Do the non-Touristy Things
Hike up to the Gianicolo Hill and listen to the cannon fired everyday at 12.00pm since the victorious day of the battle of Rome. Visit the Jewish Ghetto, grab a take away beer and Pizza and savor it at the Piazza Navona, visit the Cat Sanctuary and stroll along the Trevi Fountain after the city has slept! Phew! And that’s only half the list! We suggest you add your own escapades!

For the travelers who love Rome for all that it stands- the art, architecture, legendary stories, soulful food and interesting people, these hacks will surely make your stay a tad bit easier.

The love that Rome showers through its stories, its Piazzas, its cobbled pathways and its legends, makes it the one place which every tourist will only adore! Maybe that’s why ‘romance’ has ‘Rome’ in it!

Once your flight land at the Malaysia airport, you will prefer to reach the hotel first. Now, if you don’t have proper transportation you will be left wondering outside the airport. So, what’s the best thing you can do? Choose the easiest option and that is, airport express train. It is the most inexpensive mode of transportation from the Malaysian airport to reach the capital.

If you are traveling with your family, it is best to book the hotels beforehand. This is because you will come across a good deal rather than reaching over there and then walk into the hotel to make the booking. There are many online portals that offer hotel deals.  You can use them too for saving your expense. For backpackers, guesthouses with a room are often available. In general, the advice is to book your hotel well in advance to avoid any kind of hassle.

If you are still confused, the best way to choose one is to check the locals eating there. If they seem to be happy with the food, then go ahead.

Wearing light clothes –

apparel-442829_640
Malaysia experiences very fluctuating climate. It is sunny almost throughout the year. Hence, light clothing is ideal for Malaysian vacation. However, if you are visiting any religious place like mosque and temples, be decently dressed. Women should try to wear long sleeves and long skirts or loose pants.

Following the local customs –
Every country has their own custom and they prefer to maintain that. Being a visitor, it is also your duty to check that you don’t harm their customs. In fact, respecting their customs and following them can help you to develop friendship with the locals. Similarly, before you visit Malaysia, learn about their customs. For instance, remove shoes while entering a house and places of worship. Be decently dressed in religious places. Try to handle food with your right hand.

Keep your valuables under close watch –
Be careful about your belongings. Remember, you are new in Malaysia. Hence, make sure you don’t misplace your wallets or bags where you have kept important documents. If you are carrying a backpack, remember to keep it on the front.  Especially in places like the china town of Kuala Lumpur. This is because, such places remain crowded for most part of the day. Hence, pickpocketing is common thing over there.
