Best Things to Do for Low Budget Travelers in Rome
Some say Roma, some say Rome, but Rome is one of those cities that are on everyone’s bucket list. We all want to see Rome before we kick the proverbial bucket. However when the finances are considered, most people do not end up ticking this off their list. Whether it is the Vatican City that you want to see, or perhaps just the pleasure of being in such a historic city, you should be able to do just that. What if money was not an object? If you could just worry about travel and accommodation, and not the cost of the activities and places that you would need to visit? Would that make you more inclined to go to Rome? If that is this case, you are reading the right article. We will explore some of the places that you can visit in Rome without having to pay a penny.
Vatican City Museum
The Vatican City Museum is open to public access from 09:00 to 12:00 hrs every last Sunday of the month. Outside of these hours, you will have to pay, so take note of the time. To take advantage of this, you would obviously need to travel to Rome towards the end of the month, to make sure you are there for that last Sunday of the month.
Most American movies that are set in Rome have this glorious fountain. Some say it is the most beautiful one in the whole world, but that is obviously a matter of opinion. Trevi Fountain is open to the public. Bring some spare change to throw into it. They say that if you throw a coin into this fountain over your shoulder, you will find your way back to Rome. Whether you choose to believe in this or not, it is worth a try.
The Church of San Pietro
If you are an art enthusiast or anyone who will appreciate beauty, you should definitely make it a point that you visit this place. It houses some of Michelangelo’s great pieces. The statue of Moses is found in here. You can access this for free between 07:00 and 12:30, as well as between 15:30 and 19:00. Treat yourself to the spectacular 16th Century art, by one of the greatest artists that ever lived.
If you do nothing else, afford yourself a comprehensive walking tour of Rome.
