When in Rome…
Travelling through Italy is a fantastic experience, but it would be incomplete without a visit to Rome! We will take a look at some great free apps for your android and IOS device to help you make the most out of your Italian adventure.
If you need to find a great restaurant or tourist attraction, having the right app can take the guesswork out of your selection process, giving you more time to relax and enjoy yourself. Trying to find your way around can also be made easy by the right app for the job, simply open up a mapping or navigational app and let the on screen prompts guide you to your chosen destination.
If you feel like ditching the crowds and making your way around the city on your own, there are plenty of tourist guide apps out there to help you explore the city and customize your trip.
When looking to get around in Rome, there is a different mode of transport that is favored by the locals, and that is none other than the humble scooter. So it is not surprising that enterprising Italian software developers have created an app for getting around on them, with Scooterino.
This clever little app allows you to look up driver details, pricing and much more, before even booking your ride. Once you have summoned a scooter to your location, you can hop on and experience the city as a passenger, which allows you to really soak up the atmosphere and culture of the place. Payment options allow you to pay via the app or even with a credit card, which means that there is no need to carry cash around with you.
Make a House Call
Restaurants have come full circle with our next two apps in our round up, courtesy of Bonappetour and Deliveroo. Bonappetour lets you experience authentic, home cooked Italian cuisine without the irritation of a crowded restaurant. You can also say goodbye to long queues as your dining experience is a much more personal affair.
All you need to do is find a home restaurant through the app and make your booking. You’ll be able to chat with your host as he or she prepares your meal, giving you a local perspective, not only the food that you are about to eat, but also about the culture and the city itself.
Deliveroo on the other hand, takes the opposite approach. Feeling a little tired after a hard day’s sightseeing but still want to enjoy Italian cuisine? Simply log into the app, order what you want and have it delivered to where you are staying.
Take The Metro
EasyMetro is a mapping app that will help you to find your way around the Metro in Rome. It is easy to use and is packed with additional features such as timetables for your journey, directions to help you to get to the station, places of interest, news and more.
Sometimes you will need to travel great distances and make many stops along the way, and in these instances an app like this can be a massive help. The biggest perk for a traveler is the fact that the app can be used in offline mode, which will certainly save you additional roaming data charges.
