The Top 20 Travel Blogs in Rome in 2019

After extensive research, we’re proud to announce the 20 best blogs you can find for travelling to Rome as of 2019!

The selection process…

Travelling is about experiencing the best of what a new city can offer and a great place to find inspiration is in blogs. However, it can be a jungle to navigate through the many blogs and content you can find online. Therefore, our team has scoured the internet looking for the best travel blogs in Rome.

The 20 blogs that have made the final list have been selected following a selection according to 4 criteria:

  • Quality of the content
  • The practicality of the tips and pieces of advice
  • Purpose of the blog
  • Originality

In this award, you will find talented photographers, skilled writers, wanderlust addicts, foodies, family travellers, and eco-friendly travellers. Additionally, it is necessary to mention that some websites awarded are not, strictly speaking, travel blogs. However, in every case, the usefulness of their tips or their great content have convinced us to include them.

All 20 blogs have made it as “Best 20 Travel Blogs 2019” meaning the order is random.

We would like to congratulate all the bloggers that made the Top 20 thanks to their awesome work!


The nominated bloggers are more than welcome to put the following code on their website to use the badge and share their nomination with their readers!

Becky Excell

Becky Excell created the blog in 2013. When I was first told it was game over for me and gluten. So I started posting/creating gluten free recipes for all the things I missed eating… and it turned out that loads of other people missed the same kinda things as I did! Since then I’ve dedicated my blog to help make gluten-free people’s lives easier in whatever way I can – with recipes, travel guides or new product finds.

I love to travel and because eating out abroad can be a very stressful experience when you’re gluten free, I always try to create travel guides for my audience whenever I can. Nobody should have to miss out on seeing the world just because of gluten!

What makes my blog unique?

I guess the thing that makes my blog unique is myself. I like to think that in every word I type, or in every photo I take, there’s a little bit of me in everything! Instead of just being a blog where I dump recipes on people and head straight for the exit, I use my blog as a bit of a scrapbook of what I’ve been up to. It’s as much for me to look back on and be like ‘oh, I remember doing/creating that – that was fun!’ as it (hopefully) is for everyone else to enjoy.

Why have you created this blog? : “I enjoy sharing the excitement of adventure travel with others, inspiring them to discover new destinations that may not have been on their radar. To dive deep into the local culture and learn something new about the world we all live in. To help give them the courage to venture outside their comfort zones. The catalyst to start my travel blog was working an unfulfilling job, and feeling a bit lost without a purpose.

In the hopes of injecting some inspiration into my life again, I took a risk by saving some money and quitting my job. Next,  I went backpacking through Central America for a year while sharing the journey with family and friends via the blog. But soon other people started to follow along too. And I was having such a good time, that I did everything I could to figure out how to make travel blogging my full-time job.” Matt
