Rome sweet Rome March 19, 2012

Liisi and Sezgi went to Rome last week and they experimented to survive with only 50 Euros for 5 days! Here, you can find useful tips about Rome and how to do EVS style of travelling! Enjoy!

1-First of all, if you want to keep your money try to find a host on Couchsurfing! But be careful about the disease!

2- Get your free map from airport!

3- Do not take a tour guide, guide yourself!

4- If anybody looks interesting like Gladiator or funny character, do not take a photo with him/her. They’ll ask for Money. They took Sezgi’s 20 cent!

5- If CS home looks dirty, do not mind! Just clean it yourself!

6- If you see any big and little bit old building, don’t worry, just take a photo! After you back to home you’ll have plenty of time to find out what the hell is it!

7- Find a supermarket and buy something to make a sandwiches. It will be 10 times cheaper to eat in a restaurant. Maybe after 3 days, you can be fed up with sandwiches but, you keep your money!







8- If you get tired, fallow the local’s good example! First take nap wherever you are at the moment and continue!

9- Remember! You can reach anywhere from Termini (Central Station) So, keep it in your mind, Termini will be your best friend! Sezgi fell in love with Termini.




10- Among all the other touristic attractions, most important thing is to find Fontana Di Trevi! Maybe you don’t have enouhg Money to understand all beauty of Rome but in future you’ll be rich for sure! So throw a coin over your shoulder to the fontain in order to come back to Rome! In our case we throw Turkish coins because it’s cheaper. J

11- Do you like to go to church? No? But this one is another country called Vatikan! So, you can visit two countries in one trip, one is for free! J

12- You can find free concert almost everywhere in Rome! We found one violin player who kept to eye contact with everybody who passed by and played violin extremly well, so that Sezgi felt week in her knees and we even went to one shop to cool us downJ Of course, not for shopping.


13- In Rome, almost in every street you can find a monument. We found Spanish Stairs!

14- Drink typical Italian coffe! Cappuccino invented in Rome. Just for 1.10Euro.

15- We tasted Gelato. 3 EU for each but we didn’t cry because it was very sweet!

16- If you get tired of Italian noise, go to some church because they order silence there so you can have a moment of piece of quiet.

17- Try to get good relations with the people that you stayed with. Buy a toilet paper or something then can happen that they cook for you and they can be your informal tour guide!
