After the initial shock wore off that we were going to Rome – ROME! – Ryan handed me a copy of Rome for Dummies and we relaxed, excitedly texted family, and hung out before our flight!
My mom gave us great advice on picking up a Roma Pass for our stay and it was WELL worth the €30 each! The pass gets you a ton of stuff – most importantly transport on the trains and buses and queue jump privileges – and made the entire trip go really smoothly. Since our hotel was pretty central, we walked to many of our destinations and took public transport for the return journey if we were crunched for time or had tired legs.
To be honest, the only hiccup we had travel-wise was the cheeky cab driver that tried to charge us €10 for a €5 fare on our first night. I generally don't yell at strangers, but 6 minutes and €7 later, we parted ways with him and I had thoroughly pissed off what had to be the angriest man in Rome.
Ah, well. I got almost my full change and, as he said, that was "coffee money." Except we used it for gelato. ;)
