I've just come across these forum discussions on Rome and they are all very helpful. I've read a few and have sussed out a few things, but just wondering if I could ask some more general questions and perhaps get some newbie advice?
I'm visiting Rome for a week in September with my partner and we will be staying in an apartment in Trieste. I've never been to Italy before so I need some general tips.
What tickets would you recommend we buy for public transport? We will be using this as our main method of transport for exploring the city for a week and hoping to jump on and off buses and trains as often as we can. Is there a combination ticket for this? We have looked at the OMNI ticket but as this is only valid for a couple of days we don't think it's appropriate.
What tickets should we book in advance? We know there will be queues for the main attractions so have looked into buying in advance but we've had a couple of problems with buying on the official websites. I believe the official website for the Colusseum is:www.coopculture.it
On both we are having trouble selecting the reduced tickets (we are from the EU and in our early 20's) and for some reason it won't process our request, we only want tickets for entry, not tours.
Any other tips on what sites to see or tickets to book in advance?
Also, any tips on supermarkets near by? We have cooking facilities so will be eating in sometimes.
Thanks for your help in advance. I know there will be other topics similar but any advice or a point in a direction would be great! :)
