Good to know
Pickpockets are rife in Rome, bringing a coat with inside pockets or getting a smaller bag that fits underneath your coat is the safest way to prevent them.
Make sure you puncture your tram tickets with the small machines by the seats otherwise you could be fined.
The currency in Rome, Italy is Euros.
The best time to visit Rome, in my opinion, is Autumn/Winter. This is partly due to the fact the main attractions would be unbearably busy in the summer, and in the Italian heat it would almost be too much.
Pasta in Italy is real pasta, which is amazing but be prepared for the dishes to taste different to English Italian Restaurants. One of the main reasons for this is the fat content, England has added cream to many of the original Italian pasta dishes so for dishes such as Carbonara there may be a taste difference.
