Tips for saving money on your trip to Rome

Without a doubt, Rome is one of the most touristic cities in Europe and the world, so visiting it can be very expensive. As we all know, once demand increases, the prices of lodging, accommodation and restaurants go up too.

Luckily, there are several ways to reduce expenses during your trip to Rome. If you know where to look, and plan your trip in advance, you can save a decent amount of money.

Travelling to Rome on a budget may be easier than you think. If you know where to look, you can take a Rome Food tour without having to spend a fortune, or stay in nice, affordable hotels outside the city centre.

The key is knowing how to keep your outgoing costs low, without compromising on the quality of your trip. The key to doing so is avoiding unnecessary expenses. In this article we will provide some tips to help you save as much as possible while still enjoying yourself to the fullest, and visiting as many places as possible.

Plan your trip
In order to save money, try to anticipate all expenses related to your trip. Any kind of trip should be planned with enough time to spare to properly assess each situation, and how to make the most of it.

There is an infinite amount of information online these days, which is very helpful for understanding how best to cover our needs at the lowest possible cost, wherever we are in the world.

Before traveling to Rome, you should ascertain key details for your trip, such as which hotels are comfortable without being excessively expensive; or which places will let you get to know the local cuisine without spending too much money - like the famous Food tour Rome has to offer.

If you choose which places you would like to visit in advance, this is useful for establishing whether you can get some kind of discount, or determining the cheapest form of transportation between stops, among other things.

So the first tip - perhaps the most important - is to gather in advance all necessary information to organize and plan an itinerary, as well as the details of your stay. Of course, once you arrive in Rome you will most likely decide to add more activities or change their order. Spontaneity is essential! But it is important to have some kind of structure so you know where to begin.

Buy tickets well in advance
Air tickets cost much less money if you buy them well in advance. Check which day is best for you to travel based on the cheapest flights you find. There is a wide range of websites that can help you to find the cheapest flights.

Generally speaking, the cheapest flights are available outside of peak seasons, and on weekdays. Keep your schedule in mind too - if you’re travelling in the early morning, then a taxi to your accommodation will be more expensive than usual, and the extra cost may even cancel out what you managed to save on the flight!

Search for cheaper accommodation
Lodging is an essential item when planning your budget. Finding a cheap place to sleep in Rome is not easy, but nor is it impossible.

Look for accommodation far away from the city center, and if you’re aiming to lower costs still further, look into local hostels with shared rooms. There is also the option of renting an apartment through Airbnb.

Spend a little more on your meals
Rome is a city with food to die for, whose cuisine is recognized and imitated worldwide. Sampling its delicacies is a no-brainer. But visitors need not eat in the most expensive restaurants to savor the city’s most mouth-watering dishes.

Restaurants and bars within the historic center of the city are among the most expensive ones in town, and generally attract the most tourists. They can be safely avoided: just a few blocks away, you’ll find dozens of other gastronomic options which are just as good, and cost far less.

If your budget is tight, you can always resort to fast food restaurants, order a panini at a food stall, or buy essential ingredients in the city’s supermarkets.

Taking these tips into account can help you make the most of your budget, and pull off a successful visit to Rome without having to spend a fortune!
