Walking, walking and more walking.

Walking in romeSpecial shoesThe importance of having a comfortable and flat soled pair of shoes for Rome cannot be stressed enough. Make no mistake you are going to need them, but if you have forgotten them then they are easy to buy in the numerous stores and boutiques in Rome. The only way to really see this city is to do it by walking. Many tour companies specialise in walking tours and you can find more information about the tours at the hotel upon your arrival.

As most of you will also know, Rome is famous for it’s hills Palatine, Capitoline etc. Which without a doubt you will eventually walk up or down at some point during your stay. There could possibly be nothing worse than walking around in a pair of stilettos, unless you have done your site – seeing for the day and are off to paint the town. Rome has lots of cobbled streets that tend to get a little slippery when wet and there is always some kind of street or road works going on.

Relaxing in the bathroom

After you have spent your day walking you can rest and relax in the comfort of your hotel room and have a nice relaxing bath or shower, to recharge your batteries for the next day.

Just use some common sense when deciding what kind of shoes to get. You don’t want to have to worry about sore feet and let that spoil your holiday now do you?
