Rome: A Student Travel Guide

One of the best things about living in the UK is how quick, easy and cheap it is to get to mainland Europe. For short weekend breaks there are so many options it can be hard to decide where to go. To help you out we are creating a series of guides to places in Europe that are perfect for short holidays. If you have been anywhere exciting in Europe and want to write a short guide, then please get in contact with us. Below, Cuban student Maria gives her guide to Rome. 

 

Rome, Italy

When I visited Rome for the first time last summer, I was convinced it was the most beautiful city in the world (after my native Havana). Now, just after my second visit, I can confirm my initial perception. During the last few days, I have wandered in the world's largest open-air museum, taking in some much appreciated sun and probably gained a few pounds off the best food out there. Here are some tips for a budget-friendly student trip to the capital of Italy based on my own experiences.

A Few Words of Wisdom for Freshers

It has been just a little over a year since I arrived in London, and I can still vividly remember the excitement of my first few days in this wonderful city. Securing accommodation and attending orientation events took up most of my time. I especially recall being bombarded with loads and loads of information which I could not possibly digest during such a hectic period.

In retrospect, I wish I had found some space in the business of arrival week to do some things that should have not been delayed. For example:

1. Meeting the neighbours. When one is far away from home, a community of caring friends provides comfort, company and happiness. My neighbours are by far the biggest treasure I have found in London, and I wish I had not waited so long to knock on their door.
