What a brilliant time we had in Rome, forget all the tales of expense, we managed very well ,
you just need to get of the tourist route. we had wine for 8 euro a bottle, and meals for 8 to 9 euros.
We did our own tours , saved on the guided price.
The hotel was clean and the staff excellent ,and only around the corner from the Vatican. The desk guys (Sam) gave us a map on our arrival
and circled all the main tourist "must do's" told us what buses to use and train stations to take and get off. trains cost 1.5 euro to any stop you want , but if you get off you'll need another 1.5 euro to get to another place.
With so much to do in four days, were already planning a return trip in 2014, but will go in November when the crowds have gone , although it was amazing seeing so many people there at this time of year.
