The Frugal Traveler Visits Rome
New York Times writer, Matt Gross ("The Frugal Traveler") visits Rome this week on his Grand Tour of Europe. In his quest to save Euros, Matt stayed in a convent, used public transportation, visited (free) churches that are famous for their art, and found that it is easy to feast like a king in Rome on a budget. He spends a great deal of time in Trastevere, the Modern Traveler's favorite Roman neighborhood. See his article for the details of his adventures and a great video documenting his stay in Rome.
