The 2017 Roma Pride Parade happened yesterday. It was a very beautiful day with normal early summer temperature. It started from Plaza de la Republica and ended up at Piazza de Venezia. A fellow couchsurfer and I joined the parade that lasted almost three hours. I didn’t finish the parade route because my legs were so exhausted that I had to sit down on the sidewalk across the Colosseum for twenty five minutes.
In Roma, everyone can join the parade, unlike other Pride Parades I’ve been to that are more organized. In here, you can grab a bottle of alcohol while on parade. Toronto or New York Parade routes have fences where only registered participants can go in the parade. Politicians even have their own contingents or float when joining in the parade. In Rome’s Pride Parade yesterday, I didn’t see any political groups in the throng of people. Not to my knowledge, at least.
Money-Saving Tip in Rome and Vatican
Rome and the Vatican are packed with places to see and history to marvel at. If you’re going to stay there for a few days only, it’s very impossible to squeeze and see everything you want to see. This Rome & Vatican Pass will let you see the places you’ve been dying to visit and known of from the pages of history books.
If your looking for a hostel that’s near the Roma Termini (Rome Main Train Station), stay at. It’s 5 minutes walk to the train station. Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum are 30 minutes walk from the hostel. There are some restaurants around and it’s a pretty safe area. The hostel is clean and has a rooftop bar.
If you don’t like hostels, there are hotels you can choose from these websites: HostelWorld and .
