I run Rome Vacation Tips because even after years of living here I am still spellbound by Rome – and because I still adore introducing people to this incredible city and want to help everyone get the most out of their visit without them having to waste time dealing with the little stuff.

I have put literally hundreds of hours into writing and maintaining this site, for almost no financial gain. It is extremely time consuming to keep this site updated (as well as providing free advice in the Rome section of reddit).

If you feel like you’ve gotten something out of it and would like to show your thanks, you can support this site in a couple of ways: first, I make a small amount of commission every time you buy a ticket through the site. Or secondly, maybe you’d like to buy me a beer (or more) using the PayPal links below.
