Visiting Rome on a budget, but afraid you’ll miss out? Don’t be. Making the most out of this historic city can cost less than $100 a day. Here’s a sample itinerary.
Start the day by renting a city bike at Roma Rent Bike. With an online price of only $17 per day, it’s a great way to save time and money.
Next, you’ll want to fuel up with coffee and a pastry at Tazza D’Oro Coffee Shop, one of Rome’s most beloved cafés. It’s just a short ride from Roma Rent Bike, and you can snag a quick breakfast for less than $10.
Now it’s time to sightsee, and oh what sights there are. First pedal to Fontana de Trevi for a free gaze at the most famous fountain in the world. Then zip over to the incredible Basilica di San Clemente, where for $7 you can tour this multilayered microcosm of Rome’s rich past.
For lunch, take a 15-minute ride to Pinsere and chow down on an ancient, oval-shaped style of pizza known as “pinsa” for less than $5 a slice. To help digest this delicious Roman staple, head over to the nearby Villa Borghese landscape garden. The grounds surrounding the Borghese family’s historic villa make up the third largest public park in Rome.
No trip to the The Eternal City is complete without wandering through at least one art museum, and Palazzo Altemps is a must-see for classical sculpture lovers. A $9 entrance fee grants you access to all five collections, including the Egyptian collection where you can marvel at the famous Ludovisi Battle Sarcophagus.
For dinner, it’s almost mandatory to load up on authentic Roman pasta, and Casa Coppelle is the perfect spot. Prices here can run anywhere from $20 to $30, but that’s okay. At this point in the day you’ve only spent around $50, so dig in!
Still have cash to spare? Bike the few blocks to Gelateria del Teatro and wind down the night with arguably the best gelato in Rome. Then go to bed with a full stomach and an even fuller wallet.
