Rome is not just the capital city of Italy; it also serves as one of the country’s most prominent tourist destinations. Nicknamed the “Eternal City”, Rome is filled with well-preserved historic sites, top-notch museums, world-class restaurants, and several other points of interest that make it a must-see when in Italy. In fact, you can spend several days in Rome and still not be able to cover everything.

That said, there are some reasons or circumstances, such as a layover or a stop on a cruise, where you only get 24 hours to explore the city. While everyone knows that Rome wasn’t built in a day, it is technically possible to see the best that the city has to offer in one full day. If you want to have the best 24 hours in Rome, check out this guide we’ve carefully put together for you.

Useful Tips for a Day Trip in Rome

  • Stick to the highlights! We know you want to see as much as you can but with the little time you have, it’s not advisable. Instead, just stick to the must-see attractions for this day trip.
  • Book all your tickets in advance! We can’t stress this enough; while you can always buy on-site, this can be time-consuming and inconvenient. There are plenty of ways to buy tickets online; you can also check out tour options that combine multiple attractions in order to save time and money.
  • You can also opt to get the Omnia Pass, which gives you access to Rome’s top landmarks as well as famous Vatican City attractions.
  • With a lot of walking in store, it’s best to travel light! Stow your luggage, backpacks, or bags at a Rome luggage storage facility if you find yourself getting weighed down as you explore.
  • Dress appropriately; wear comfortable shoes and avoid revealing clothes in holy sites such as churches.

Simple things that will give you peace of mind on your next vacation

When we book a holiday, we do so with rest and relaxation in mind. Long days spent lounging by the pool, soaking up the sun, or spending your free time trying new activities and enjoying time with the kids without schedules, homework or deadlines is usually the order of the day. 

But for some people, the ability to really let go of their responsibilities and fully unwind whilst away from home doesn’t come easy. Old habits die hard, including checking your emails, scrolling through your phone and feelings of stress and tension.

If you want to make your next vacation your most relaxing yet, you may want to consider preparing for the unexpected. Often, it’s the simplest of things that can give us peace of mind, especially when we’re overseas and far away from home. Read on to find out more. 

Understand your consumer rights

Vacationing whilst there are strict travel restrictions and ever-changing regulations isn’t easy. It often means plans being altered at the last moment and holidays being cancelled overnight. This kind of uncertainty can bring all kinds of stress, casting a dark shadow over your break. Thankfully, this helpful infographic, produced by the knowledgeable team at Creditfix, details everything you need to know about applying for a refund and what to do if your holiday plans are impacted due to Covid-19. Knowing where you stand in the event of your vacation going awry will give you peace of mind throughout your holiday.

Create a basic itinerary

Knowing that you can be easily reached in the event of an emergency will also give you peace of mind. Drafting an itinerary and giving it to friends and family means that if something happens at home or you’re caught up in a terrorist attack or natural disaster, you can be easily found and contacted. You don’t have to plan your holiday down to the minute, but drafting a basic itinerary and including all your flight and transfer details as well as hotel information and contacts will give everyone peace of mind! 

Create a call list

We all keep our contacts on our phones. But what if your phone is lost, stolen or it won’t charge? It’s a nightmare scenario, but the solution is simple. If the idea of being unable to communicate with those back home fills you with dread, write down an emergency call list. Friends, family, your doctor, lawyer, your bank’s contact details and anyone else you think may be useful. It’s also a good idea to know the emergency number for the country you’re visiting! 

And finally, work out your budget

It’s easy to get swept away in the excitement of a well-deserved holiday. We want to buy all those little extra treats, souvenirs and indulge in all those once in a lifetime activities. But you should exercise caution, running out of money whilst overseas and the idea of coming home to a hefty credit card bill is enough to ruin any holiday. Before you travel, know your budget and make sure you stick to it!

On the off chance that soap and water are not accessible, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. Try not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 

  • Keep away from the 3Cs: closed spaces, crowd, or close contact. 

Cases of outbreaks have been accounted for in eateries, gyms, clubs, workplaces, and places of worship where individuals have accumulated, frequently in jam-packed indoor settings where they talk noisily, yell, inhale vigorously, or sing. The dangers of getting COVID-19 are higher in crowded and deficiently ventilated spaces where infected individuals fraternize closely. These are the places where the infection seems to spreads by respiratory droplets or aerosols more effectively, so avoiding potential risk is much more significant. Meet individuals outside. Open-air social events are more secure than indoor ones, especially if indoor spaces are small and without a ventilation system.

These incorporate work areas, telephone keypads, PC consoles, TV controllers, door handles and, kitchen counters. Rub them with a cloth or paper towel that has been hosed with liquor-based disinfectant. (Try not to get hardware wet. A hosed cloth is adequate and won’t damage your gadgets.) 

  • Take care of your self

Feeling exhausted, dizzy, or sick? It very well may be an infection; however, it could likewise be dehydration. At the point when you lose an excessive amount of liquid, your body can’t work appropriately. Get enough rest! Grown-ups who get less than six hours of sleep a night are bound to catch a cold than those getting the required seven hours. 

  • Try not to share papers. 

Right now, is an ideal opportunity to use computerized documents. On the off chance that your teachers don’t request papers on a PC, recommend it. With regards to the everyday mail, discard envelopes and any papers you don’t require.
