First time in Rome, right? Take a look at these simple rules. I promise you’ll visit the Eternal city in the best possible way.
AVOID TOURISTIC RESTAURANTS IN ROME
There’s nothing wrong with the touristic restaurants, but we wouldn’t want you to miss out on the chance to eat authentic, high-quality Italian food.
Do not let yourselves be swayed by touristic menu such as “First Course, Second Course, Cake, Coffee and Water for a mere 10 €!”. That’s a good offer, but… it is also true that they may use low-quality products.
So where should we go now?
Don’t worry, I have written you an article for you. Trust me, I am a real foody!
SAVE YOUR MONEY: USE “NASONI”!
In most World cities, you have to buy a significant amount of bottled water.
But not in Rome!
Save your money and use “Nasoni”. But… what are they?
Nasoni are water fountains throughout the Eternal City: if you have trouble finding them, you may use the app (available for Android and iOS as a free download)
Take your water bottle, find a “nasone” and enjoy ever-fresh water!

GET THE RIGHT SHOES
“I’ll wear high heels during my time in Rome”.
Wait, wait, wait… I assume you mean for dinner! Forget uncomfortable shoes if you are planning to visit the Eternal City in the right way!
Rome is full of cobblestones and it’s recommended to wear comfortable shoes: your feet will appreciate!
DON’T RENT A CAR IN ROME
If you are looking for a way to move faster in Rome, you should not rent a car, unless you like to be stuck in traffic!
And on top of that, parking will be impossible!
So how should I get around?
You have three options:
- Use public transport
- Rent a Vespa or Scooter (link) like an early Gregory Peck or Audrey Hepburn
- Rent a Bike (link) and move around the city in the greenest way
I hope that I was of some small help. Well, as long as everything's all right I guess I'll just say "Have a nice trip!"
