Visiting Rome for the Day

Published Date Author: , November 3rd, 2013

Rome - Adam GroffmanOkay, well in all actuality I was in Rome for slightly more than a day — just under 36 hours to be precise. It wasn’t my first time to the Eternal City, though, so I wasn’t feeling much pressure to see all the sights. This time around was just about eating well, having some fun and discovering some cool and hip hotspots. Here’s what my day in Rome looked like:

12:30pm — Arrive via train from Florence: Since I was only staying in Rome for a single night, I opted to stay at one of the many cheap hotels and hostels near Roma Termini station. The main train station is massive and just to the northeast are countless 3-star hotels and backpacker hostels. I stayed at The Yellow Hostel which was significantly better than the hostel I’d previously stayed at in Rome (this one).

12:45pm — Check-in to my hostel: The Yellow staff were super friendly, there were signs everywhere promoting their events and social media and the lounge area was comfortable and relaxed. They told me when checking in that the entire hostel should have super-fast wifi, but whether because of my bad luck or the fact that Mercury is in retrograde, my room didn’t have any. But probably my favorite part of the hostel (read the full review) was the fact they had several signs up about “love is love” and little drawings of same-sex and heterosexual couples holding hands.
