planning a solo trip to Rome- I need help!

Jump to last reply

This August I'll be in Italy for two months visiting a friend. He lives down in Sicily. Before I go home I wanted to spend a week somewhere more "iconic" so to speak. Because my flight is from Rome, I think this is the best bet (although I had wanted to see Venice or Florence but I think I'm asking to much to squeeze them into a week as well as Rome)

I'm a female and will be alone during this trip (apart from the home stay with my friend) on top of this, i am a relatively unseasoned traveller and a bit wary of navigating my way around.

I'm sure it is possible for me to spend a week in Rome and find myself something new to do every day, my question is what. I don't know where to start planning this mini detour in terms of sights to see (in city and day trips outside), how to get there, and where to stay. Any advice?? Because I'm alone, I'd prefer avoiding the need to use public transport as much as I can (apart from day trips of course) and do not mind spending a day walking about.
