    I am going travelling this July starting in Italy (Rome, Venice and Tuscany) and I will be finishing up in Germany (so far Munich).
    I want to make the most of my travels I am so excited, and if I get the opportunity to travel more this year I will 100% be taking it.

    What is your favourite destination and why?

    Also any travelling advice would be great

    I loved Rome as I loved seeing the Spanish steps and enjoying proper Italian coffee.

    I'm so excited to go, Rome being my first stop is just insane!
    The Spanish Steps are a must see/do then?

    Was there any other places in Rome you would suggest seeing/visiting that aren't necessarily classed as touristy areas? I've heard that eating and drinking in Rome is very expensive so that's something I am preparing for

    Definite must see but I would say to aim to go earlier in the day as its quiter and there's less street sellers about.
    We mostly stuck to touristy areas. Coffee and gelato were actually quite reasonable really but for other food we would try and find cheap cafes or eat pizzas on the go.
