Rome Chapter Notes

You should expect a moderate level of physical activity (mostly walking).

Elevators are not common in apartments in Rome.

Traffic can be a problem in Rome, so generally we recommend walking if that’s possible.

The city is full of very old uneven cobblestone streets which can be slippery (especially when wet). You should pack reliable walking shoes.
