How to beat the crowds in Rome (the best times to visit + insider tips)

The Italian capital of Rome is one of the most spectacular places to visit in Europe. History lies around each. corner, and it’s impossible not to fall in love when you wander the winding streets. With so many museums, churches and pieces of art to admire, there will barely be enough time to see everything in one visit – I recommend at least three or four days! The queues at some of these spectacular attractions can be atrocious, especially during the hot Roman summers. Don’t waste time waiting in line for tickets! In this article I’ll share the best tips & tricks to get into your favourite Roman attractions without waiting in line (and save some money while you’re at it!).

What to see in Rome on your first visit

Rome is the dream destination of almost every city enthusiast: combine gorgeous ancient buildings with Italian cuisine, add some sunshine and is there really any destination that can top that?! Last year I visited Rome with my mom. I had been there before, but just to adjust a well-known quote: Rome is always a good idea. I had three perfect days in which I ate until I couldn’t walk, visited the most beautiful places and enjoyed the great weather. In this article I’ll share my very best tips on what to see in Rome on your first visit! I know the city can be intimidating, so I hope this helps!

Venice, oh Venice… you’re such a dream. Until you look at the price tag, then you’re more of a nightmare. Funny enough I seem to have a love for expensive destinations, or so it seems. Not only did I move to London last year, I also continue to visit one expensive destination after the other. Unfortunately, Venice is no exception.

I always like the challenge of visiting an expensive destination in such a way that you get a luxurious experience for a smaller price. A little bit of flexibility, a little bit of playing with numbers… and before you know it you’ll be eating pizza along the canals of Venice while the sun is shining on your face. Priceless (but, ummm… don’t forget to pay). Here’s an overview of how much a weekend in Venice will cost you.
