24 Hours in Rome

With only one day in Rome and so much to see, it was a struggle to narrow down my checklist of things to do. After being in Venice and Cinque Terre for a few days, I was slightly nervous for the bustling city of Rome and its larger population as I had been warned with many pickpocket stories.

24 Hours in Venice

I planned a 6 day trip in Italy to visit Venice, Cinque Terre, and Rome. It was very ambitious but I believe I pulled it off successfully. Rome was admittedly quite rushed – my travel buddy Beatrice said it was a good intro to Rome trip for her and she would like to return to see it in more depth. Regarding Venice and Cinque Terre, she said we spent the perfect amount of time there to experience it fully. 

Here’s what I did with my 24 hours in Venice:

1) Take the Vaporetto a much cheaper alternative to see the cityscape from the canal instead of a gondola.
