Brian and I spent Thanksgiving in Rome this year. What a great time of year to visit this city!! I did reserve tickets online for the Vatican Museum. I also did my research and found that the Rome Pass is a great thing to get if you plan on going to two or more other sights. I knew we would go to the Colosseum and I also had read about the National Museum of Rome, which both accepted the Rome Pass. The Rome Pass allows free admission to the first two sights as well as free metro rides. It also allows you to not wait in line! Score!! So with the combination of having the Rome Pass as well as going at a time of year when there are little tourists, it made for the perfect trip to such a busy city as Rome. We flew into the smaller airport and were able to hop on a bus that brought us right to Termini Station. Our hotel was just a quick walk or one stop on the Metro away from Termini. The hotel was great..see more info in Trip Planner section.
We loved walking around the Spanish Step area and shopping..okay I loved that part! We love food and we loved eating all over Rome. Such fantastic homemade pastas and yummy gelato too! Who needs turkey on Thanksgiving?
