Rome on a budget

(6 Posts)

We used the hop on hop off tour - bought online in advance to save money. Stayed in a holiday apartment booked through holidayvelvet - really central - three mins from Piazza Navona (Fico apartment - slept 5 in two bedrooms and one on a sofa bed) but there was handy supermarket for buying bread for breakfast. Use the hot food counters at the back of supermarkets for a cheap lunch. I got some recommendations for good but cheap(ish) eating places from holiday guides.

Walk everywhere. It's all in a reasonably small area. You'll enjoy discovering the real Rome too.

Also, the restaurant at Termini station does lovely cheap food. It's a scabby location but really surprisingly good.

Take the Metro Linea B out to Ostia Antica. It's easy to get to, cheap and fantastic archaeology (the ancient harbour town, read brick, very complete and readable).

Many hotels don't have tea/coffee facilities so take a travel kettle if that the case. Make a flask as coffees are quite pricey. Meals are not too expensive suprisingly. Advance book tickets so you aren't queuing for hours

Any advice on going to Rome for a few days with 3 kids on a budget? In school holidays?
