One More Tip About Rome May 16, 2011
I'm very proud of myself for staying off the tour bus and learning my way around Rome by using the metro and the same buses (and grocery stores) the locals used. But one thing I needed to pay attention to more were the bus routes themselves and the times in which the routes changed and the metro stopped running. There's this one bus I would catch during the day from my hotel. But I found out that at night, that bus route would change and it would go off in some other direction...totally opposite from the day. One night I took it and ended up in some strange neighborhood that was a little scary. Well, it probably wasn't that scary, since it was near the Vatican, but I was scared because I didn't know where I was. I quickly caught another bus in the direction I was going. Also, try to learn a little Italian if you can before going. It will really help when you get lost...which I often do in foreign countries.
