Barcelona vs. Rome
- 10 responses so far
IMHO, take the longest trip possible.
Rome vs Barcelona? can’t really do that – like telling a parent to chose the favorite child.
If you like creature comforts, the go w/ a Superior tour.
Corfu is a perfect midway stop to rest and relax before charging thru the last 1/2 of the tour. George’s boat is a tour highlight.
Barcelona versus Rome, that’s a hard one since I’ve been to both.
Although they are both beautiful cities, I would choose Rome especially if it’s your first trip to Europe. The coliseum is one of the top 10 places visited by people around the world and it’s located in Rome. There is so much to see….it’s like a country on it’s own.
As for the weather, very warm in both cities!!!!!
If you do decide to do the superior, the hotel in Rome is nice, nothing extravagant. The good thing is that you have AC and if you decide to stay extra days after your tour, the hotel is not expensive and near a metro station!!!
I hope that my advice was helpfull!!!!
One thing about sleeping bags. I had heard that people get bags if they are from Canada but this is not true!!!
Sweety…go to Rome…and choose Superior since their is not mcuh difference in price!!!!
Praha…how you doing paisan????
In fatti non ti sei sbagliatto!!!!!!!!!!!
Parlo l’italiano e anche il dialetto….ha ha ha !!!!
I loved both! All depends what kind of history you’re more interested in. In Barcelona you see Gaudi (as someone mentioned), lots of Picasso, gothic cathedrals. Great cheap shopping, beautiful beach and good nightlife. In Rome it’s more ancient history with the ruins, Colosseum, and cobblestone streets. Or you can go on a tour that does both! (Mediterranean Highlights!)
DONT FORGET THE COLOSSEUM IN WINTER SHUTS AT 3.30PM OUR TOUR GUIDE MIXED UP THE TIMES AND WE MISSED OUT…
DONT GET CAUGHT
Don’t buy your entrance ticket to the Colloseum at the Colloseum entrance since you will wait a long time in line. Next to it, their are ruins with a garden, you have to pay to enter the garden and the same ticket is good for the entrace to the colleseum!!!!1
