    Hmm so I'm thinking of spending the 27th to the 10th in Rome (with a bullet train day trip or overnighter to Venice for a look) then on the 11th getting down the Amalfi Coast via Naples/Pompeii since everyone raves about the Amalfi Coast on here and in real life. I could spend a few days there then meander back to Rome for the flight home on the 19th.

    surely like here they have 500 dollar shitbangers in Italy as well that I could buy for the trip then flog off? Probably cheaper than risking binning some rental car into a Naples sewer (everyone also agrees Naples is a dump).

    the bullet trains look easy to use but i have no idea whether the view would be good during travel.

    Trip sounds wonderful. I would probably do Florence over Venice but the whole country is ****ing amazing. Have you been before?

    Good for you.

    I'd recommend pre-booking a guided Vatican tour, if you can get one after hours, even better. It's jaw-dropping - the mustest of must sees, but the queues are interminable. If you like your art history, would also recommend the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj which is on Via Del Corso not far from La Fontana di Trevi. It's a privately owned palace and art museum. About 15 Euros to get in, but well worth it. The audio tour is conducted by Prince Jonathon, whose family own the joint. He and his sister still live in different wings of the place - they don't talk. Villa Borghese is also a must do, and grab a gelato from one of the barrows in the gardens. Colosseum is amazing of course, though I admit after going to Greece I went and looked at other things rather than the Forum. Sometimes they sell opera tix out the front of the Pantheon too, so you can get a cheap ticket to watch someone belt out an aria at a venue older than time.

    Man, Italy is just the best place. I think there's more UNESCO World Heritage sites there than the rest of the world combined. The history blows your mind, it's visually beautiful and frankly, the women dress like they're on the catwalk to go out and buy groceries. It's no Chennai, but it's ok.

    Good idea. This way you avoid a) the weird reverse snobbery or backpacking culture and b) hanging out with other tourists the whole time

    oh geez, first time in Europe and first time travelling alone. Sounds like a real adventure. Stay alert - it's easy to forget stuff and misplace things when travelling on your own, and I hear petty crime is common in that part of the world. I don't think language would be a huge barrier, but wouldn't hurt to carry important addresses and phrases written down in Italian on a piece of paper so you can point it out to people when you need help. Or just invest a bit in a local sim card with a data plan so you can use google maps and translate.

    cheers for the advice guys.

    ive found a basic but tidy hotel that sometimes gets grumpy reviews because the owners don't speak a word of english but will insist on feeding you breakfast. honestly im tempted af to book there if it's the best price and as well kept as the reviews admit. the owners sound like a fun time.

    I dunno what airbnb in italy is like but it may be worth checking out too. Kinda nice option if you don't like hotels but also don't want to stay in backpackers.

    Itís Italy, not Chennai. The people are friendly and the water drinkable. Most everyone speaks English and itís first world, not a slum. And it has history, culture and wine. Enjoy.

    Actually, over 50% of Chennai can speak English whereas the figure for Italy is closer to 30%
