Travelling is so exciting! and in the case of Rome, as Asterix used to say, “these Romans are crazy”. Well they sure know how to party that’s for sure. Either way that won’t stop you from having a fun and cheap holiday in Rome – the Grandest city in the Universe.

Rome is the most Grand city in at least Europe if not the world. This amazing city is an absolutely phenomenal experience, whether it be for the history or the awesome nightlife. As an Aussie I’m jealous that we don’t have anything like this back home.

Anyhow, follow the tips below and have an awesome, memorable, and importantly, affordable experience 🙂

Getting there cheaply

There are several options you may want to consider for getting to Rome. Each has their pros and cons, depending on what your circumstances are – ie are you travelling alone, where are you coming from, are you only interested in Rome or other parts of Italy? You should compare all options below and see which has the best bottom line for you.

Flying
The first and most obvious option is through flying.

There are two airports for Rome. The Rome Fiumicino (26 km from city) and the Rome Ciampino (15 km from city).

Ciampino is the one that most budget airlines fly into, and is also a lot cheaper to get into town from as compared to the Fiumicino.

The cheapest way to get into the city from Ciampino is using the public bus service for 1 euro. Be aware tho that there are other more comfortable options but this is the cheapest. You’ll find the stop just next to the taxi rank outside the terminal building.

PROS:
With a decent website that has all the budget airlines,these days you can often get a cheap flight easily.
