Rome Travel Tips

  • Romans rarely wear shorts, even during deadly heat waves. Bring lightweight pants to blend in with the locals.
  • Rome is one of the worst cities in Europe for petty theft—keep a tight grip on valuables, especially in crowded squares and bustling metro stops.
  • Museums are crazy in high tourism season. Advance reservations are required for the Borghese Gallery, and they’ll allow you to bypass the lines at the Vatican Museum.
