Winter Rome trip plans


In January, my boyfriend and I are off to Rome for a few days. After all of this recent deadline stress at Uni, I can't wait to just get away and relax. We'll be in Rome during the first week of January and we managed to get some really affordable flights and accommodation.




Flights

We're flying from London Stansted to Rome CIA with Ryanair. The flight out isn't too early, which means we don't have to get up at crazy o'clock on the day we fly. We paid £130.36 for two return flights.

Accommodation

We've booked an Airbnb studio apartment for the 3 nights that we're there. I've stayed in an Airbnb with my family before, but this was my first time booking an Airbnb myself. My sister recommended me to Airbnb through their invite friends tool and as a result, we got some money off the booking! The accommodation is near the Vatican and we're paying £113 total.

Activities

I think we'll book tickets to the Coliseum, Vatican and a few other attractions in advance just so that we don't have to queue for a long time when we're actually there. As soon as I get home for Christmas, I'll be doing lots of research for what we can do in Rome. I have been to the city before, but quite a few years ago. It was very busy with it being Easter Weekend, so I'm looking forward to strolling the city streets during a much quieter season. I can't wait to see the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain again.



Have you got any Winter trips planned?


Thanks for reading my blog today.

  3. I love Rome so much! It cost me a fair bit more to stay for a long weekend during the summer and you won't run the risk of overheating like I did! If you have a spare few minutes while you're home for Christmas, you could watch some of my Rome vlogs to get you excited! Have a lovely trip xx
