5 Things I Learnt in Rome 1) The street names are so extra
Using Google Maps to navigate me through the hectic streets of Rome kept making me laugh when it would take so long to read out the street names. Don’t expect any simple 2 syllable single words street names in Rome. Like many European cities, it has some seriously extra addresses 2) You don’t actually have to walk everywhere
I did and I exhausted myself walking in and out from the Termini area every day. Just jump on the Metro and it will take you to the Colosseum in 10 minutes. No point being an idiot like me. 3) Overtourism
If you’re visiting from May-September, be prepared for an INSANE amount of tourists. I have never, ever experienced crowds like this – even in London! 4) Not much of a queer scene
There are a few LGBT+ clubs and one bar, plus the Gay Village that is set up every summer, but that’s it really. 5) Good but not great gluten-free
There are definitely good restaurants but gluten-free options are not as widely available or as amazing as most other websites will lead you to believe. What’s on in Rome
