I just booked a 6 day/6 night holiday in Rome, staying at Hotel Montreal near the Coliseum (excuse spelling, sorry). Haven't even started looking in to the things to do but I know I definitely want to take a trip to Pompeii.
I've only been to Amsterdam and London before so had no need to really book any trips. Is it better to book before we go, through a travel agent or go in a tourist information office in Rome to get a better deal on trips?
There will be a lot of walking involved, but is the transport system fairly easy to use? I was terrified of the Amsterdam trams until i actually used them and wondered why we didn't get on them straight away!
It's in November so hopefully queues won't be QUITE as bad as they are right now?? (Fingers crossed!)
Also, if anyone has any great things to see or any tips that the guide books may miss, it would be much appreciated.
Thank you so much for any help :-)
