Suggestions for First Time Camping


Camping, spending a night under the stars in nature is a sweet dream when you look from a distance, but does it continue when it comes into reality? This is exactly why I prepared an article for those who have never camped, which includes both the experience of those who did it and what should be known in general. It is important for every type of travel to set out with a good plan, a real expectation and the right items so that it does not return to the state of dreams & realities; maybe a little more for camping.

So what are the things that the first campers should pay attention to?

Required Equipment

Backpack: A 40-50 liter average backpack with lumbar support is your first need to carry your belongings together.

Tent:When it comes to camping, the first thing that comes to mind is the tent. Make sure you have a tent that is suitable for the season you are camping with and is water and sun proof. If you are going to buy it for the first time and want to use it for a long time – which season you will mostly camp – it is better to choose something accordingly. It should be noted that tents for 2 people are actually comfortable for 1 person. So if you are going to buy a tent for 2 people, you need to look for 4 people.

Mat: You will need a mat both when sleeping in a tent and sitting normally. Do not say I do not buy it, others will be easier after a comfortable first experience. The inflatable mattress is one of the necessary items.

Sleeping bag:Although it is not essential in the summer, it is a good idea to choose one of the overalls up to -20 degrees in order to sleep well and well in the remaining seasons. For the summer months, overalls suitable for 10 degrees will work for you most of the time.

Pillow:If you say I make pillows from my clothes or sleep without using a pillow anyway, it is okay, but it can still make you more comfortable to take with you from inflatable pillows that do not take much space.

Knife: A multi-purpose cutting tool like pocket knife will often do the job.

Thermos:Regardless of whether it is short or long term, you need to have water and thermos with you. If the area you are going to camp is not an organized area, it is always good to have enough water for your need and a thermos that keeps the water warm for long periods of time if necessary.

Lamp:This camp also has a night and if you are in nature, the moon may not always be enough. Have both the hand lamp and the head lamp with you. You can get it from hand lamps that can be charged with solar energy.

Apart from these, you can always take a look at the checklist below and take them with you, whichever is necessary for your camp at that time. list from here You can download.

Camp List

Suggestions for the First Camp

1. Go Near

Spontaneous departure is good, but it is your responsibility and it is important to be planned while you are in nature. Choose your first camp site close to where you live. It would be much better if you have a second place nearby. In fact, it is a camp site that is the most recommended business, it is close to the residential area and camping with someone who has previous camp experience, if any.

2. Don’t be afraid!

If you really want to do this, first put your worries in front of you and think. It is important that you think at least before you go and be prepared because you will be greeted with things like night, insects, animal sounds that you will hear in the morning, wind … etc. Therefore, it will make you feel more comfortable by planning. You can also have your first experience by participating in mass camp activities.

3. Investigate Camp Site

Even if you are planning to meet the nature and find peace in your first camp, choosing a little crowded area may still be important in order to spend the night easily. If you are not going to choose an organized campsite, you can choose the popular forests and lakeside. Is there a toilet, is there a telephone, is there electricity, will there be a source of water nearby … these are the things you want to pay attention to.

4. Choose a Beautiful Weather

Another of the most important things to look at before going to the camp is of course the weather. If possible, make your first camp in spring and summer. Rather than camping in cold weather, you can enjoy more by camping in fine weather.

5. Go Out With The Right Equipment

First of all, you want it, but if you are one of those who give up camping because you have enough materials or even nothing, your first thing to change is your thoughts. You can have your first camping experience by borrowing, do not put thoughtful obstacles to yourself and determine what you need at that moment.

Camping in the summer is easier due to the weather, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to take protective and warm items with you. Regardless of the season, things like fleece, cover, cardigan are always with you. If it is a sunny day, let your tent be suitable for it so that it is not too hot inside.

It is important to choose things that dry quickly in terms of clothing, and the style you can revise. Because they will get dirty, maybe they will get very dirty. At least you might want to think about it.

There is also this: It is also important not to take items with you as if you are moving with the right equipment. Of course, if you are going by car, a few pieces of extra items may make you feel safer, even if you are not going to use it, but if you are going to hitch or use public transportation, a heavy bag will not make you happy.

6. Shop

Go to the supermarket by making a shopping list and take it with you according to what and how much you need during your stay. Especially water and dry food should always be with you. Don’t forget to take energizing things with you and eat them. The marshmallow, which is identified with the camping scenes of American movies, may be one of the things you want to add to your shopping list. Of course also a garbage bag!

7. Tent Area Selection

It is important to carefully select the place where you will set up your tent and install it in the daylight as much as possible. You can choose a shaded area according to the angle of the sun or take an umbrella with you. If you are camping in cold weather, choose places that will not be affected by the wind as much as possible.

When you choose the area, clean the place where you want to set up the tent from things like stones, wood pieces, so that it does not damage your tent and you can easily position it. When collecting your tent, do not forget to lay linoleum under it, as it will be easy and clean and will add value to the life of the tent. If you set up your tent under fruit trees, you may need to consider getting your tent dirty, and if you set it under trees at a snowy time, you may have to stay under the snow. If there is wind, you need to fix your tent, so one of the things you should have with you might be a hammer because there is not always a hard object around.

8. Get Your Car Serviced

If you are going to camp by car, it is important to have the right car and a car that is maintained regularly. It would not be nice if your vehicle leaves you on the way to a camp site that is reached by dirt roads. Or if you go to a place with roads that are not suitable for your vehicle, your camping adventure may end before it starts. If we consider the worse scenario, the roads that you pass in some way turn to mud with the effect of rain; it may also become impassable on the return road. Of course, none of them but all of them are possible. That is why it is important to look at the weather frequently and choose a camp site, even if you drive with a car.

9. Toilet Subject

If there is a toilet where you go, is it ok or not? Even if you are one of those who can easily leave it to nature, but if you are not, it is important that you take it with you. Take a look at the portable toilets now, as this may not be as easy as you think. Stools can also be turned into a toilet easily, but before you go, consider this issue for sure.

10. Keep Your Tent Closed

Keep your tent’s zipper always closed. Let there be an obstacle, at least in the entrance, from all kinds of tiny insects, poultry to other animals. If you have insect phobia, especially if you keep it closed both inside and outside, nothing will get inside. Of course, you can also spray around your tent with some pesticides, it works.

11. Be Careful When Burning Campfire

First, collect dry wood from around, never cut wet trees. Even as I wrote on the camp list, you can take things like kindling and wood with you, maybe it will not be possible to find around. Be careful to light fire in the areas where fire has been burned before. Do not light fire near the tree in areas with plants. After making sure that it is safe and safe in windy times, you can burn the area where you will burn a fire by placing it in a circle of stones.

12. Leave Your Camping Area Clean

Not everyone is like you, so make sure you leave the area where you camped cleaner. That’s why the garbage bag is one of the most important things to remember. You can leave your litter away from your tent and use it as a warning against animals. If you distribute it again, you can collect it 🙂

In the meantime, you can hang your food on the trees with the help of a bag while sleeping.

13. Enjoy Your Taste

Everything doesn’t have to be quadruple, whatever you experience will be the experience for new ones. Enjoy the environment you are in as much as possible and see sharing.

10 things to consider when traveling alone


Traveling alone is a turning point for the world of people who love to travel. If you have never traveled alone before and want to do this, you can set off with the courage in you after a little preparation. In fact, if you start traveling the world alone, the belief that you can do anything is increasing.

I wanted to gather some mistakes made by solo travelers and give ideas and suggestions that you should not do them.

1. Wrong Accommodation Selection

Although you try to travel by sticking to a certain budget, it is important that your accommodation is reliable and comfortable. Make sure that all the hotels you check in have a 24-hour security reception and seek assistance in any case. At the same time, having a safe in your room can provide you with a sense of added security on behalf of your belongings. If you are going to stay in a hostel, be sure to choose a place with such features. Do not forget to put your belongings and your own security first when you say I will have affordable accommodation.

2. Taking too Heavy Luggage

One of the things I told myself the most about travel in recent years is the motto “little goods, happy travel”! You should also know that you cannot get help from anyone with your luggage, especially when traveling alone. Put aside the clothes you need, and then choose the ones you really need. If you care, it may make sense to choose straight pieces that can easily fit together. You can also take things on the road, change them, and wash them. Hotel sinks are there for this.

3. Not Making the Right Budget Planning

Every trip, short or long, alone or not, needs an average budget planning, and the more accurate you do this, the more comfortable you will be. Traveling alone does not have to be expensive, but your little research can make a big difference. If you make a rough estimate of how much money you spend on the average of accommodation prices, menu prices in places where you want to eat and other special requests before you travel, you will not be in a difficult situation while on the road.

4. Forgetting to Ask for Help

Having enough courage and confidence to travel alone does not mean that you cannot seek help when necessary. On the contrary, you will get a quick solution to your problem and maybe you will have the opportunity to chat with a person from where you go. There is no need to be proud of this, even if it is the simplest question or problem; you can ask for help from official authorities, tradesmen or people in your accommodation, never forget this.

5. Not Taking Security Precautions

It is obvious that you need to pay more attention to personal security measures, especially when alone. Follow the warnings, never give private information to strangers, keep you safe at the hotel, and stay away from the neighborhoods that are not recommended. Yes, you can socialize while alone, but it is important to pay attention to the information you share with people. One caveat is that if you go to a party for fun, be careful not to drink more than 2 glasses and be in a position to observe what’s going on around you.

6. Being Unprepared For Emergency Situations

There may be accidents and unpredictable events. This flight can be as small as missed or as big as a broken bone, and more! Before you go on a vacation alone, think about these situations. Of course, I do not say that “if something happens to me on the road” and do not give up getting stuck on this idea and stop, but it is absolutely important to think about them in advance.

Share your complete travel plan with a few people you trust, let us know where you are while you are communicating, and most importantly, get a travel health insurance. And also make sure you have cash for emergencies.


7. Too Much Plan

In the first days of the journey, you can plan many things in a row with excitement and enthusiasm, but as your journey time extends, you should make sure that you leave flexible time to relax, listen to yourself and enjoy some unplannedness. 7 of the 7 days are planned and some plans are interrupted; it should not lower your motivation after it does not happen from the weather or is canceled for any other reason. So it will make you more happy to leave flexible times between them and know that you have hours where you can shift time to do it when something you really want to do is canceled.

The same is true for the end of the trip. Trying to fit everything in the last days just because the trip is over can be tiring and prevent you from enjoying as much as you think. So keep in mind that you don’t have to do everything on a single trip, you have to leave yourself free time with what you want most.

8. Too Much Expectation

As I mentioned above, expectations are not always good expectations. It may not go as you think, and this may disappoint you. I recommend that you have a conversation with yourself against such situations. Maybe a place or activity that is very attractive from afar, when you go and see it, it will not be so impressive and you will stop doing it. All of this can happen just be aware of this situation, do not worry and continue to enjoy your trip. Happiness is a mood, we don’t always have to be happy.

9. Focus on Making New Friends

The journeys you go alone are of course great opportunities to make friends and meet travelers like you, but you don’t have to spend your days focusing on this completely. It is important to take advantage of this opportunity as you will have the opportunity to get to know yourself better and in different ways by being alone in your travel alone. Read a book in the park, have lunch alone in a cafe or go to the museum alone. Come on let’s sit down, let’s get up without someone who says, how do you see these trips to yourself?

10. Don’t be Stuck With The Concept Of Being Alone

It is nice to set out alone, but if you are hesitating, you can also find private tour groups. As a result, you will not be familiar with you and you will not know anyone, but maybe you will get good support for the trust you cannot overcome. There are companies that organize tours for many purposes; solo travelers, cyclists, young professionals, yoga camps… you can try to go on a trip by finding the one that suits you.

Bergama Travel Notes – esrageziyor


One of the first places that come to mind when İzmir is mentioned is not Bergama, but it is a place worth seeing both with its beautiful air and the calm created by the fact that it does not come to mind! Bergama Ancient City is one of the most exquisite ancient cities in the country, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Oh that theater!

If I have a question about why it is worth seeing Bergama, why should we go to Bergama, I would definitely say that if you want to have a nice cultural tour for a few days and satisfy both your eyes and your stomach, then I will talk about all of them.

My Travel Route:I traveled alone and with a private vehicle on this trip. I arrived in Bergama in about 3 hours without counting the breaks. I stayed in Bergama for 1 night and then stayed in Çandarlı for 2 nights to visit Dikili and its bays. I planned both culture and sea trips for 3 days and I loved this trip. Bergama is definitely a district that can be combined with a sea holiday, keep in mind.

Kale Neighborhood, Bergama

TRANSPORTATION

From Bergama to İzmir, it is possible to reach approximately 110 km, that is, 1.5 hours in average. If you are going to go by public transport from Izmir, it is possible to reach the minibuses every half hour from Izmir bus station, by Metro bus management or Bergamalılar Cooperative vehicles. Of course, it is useful to call and check for the pandemic period.

If you are going to depart from Istanbul or Bursa with a private vehicle; If you are going to take a break in Susurluk, you can try Düzdağ Toast. As a road flavor, it has a not bad toast. Mixed toast 10tl, 8tl with cheese, 8tl with sausage, 4tl with ayran. The location on the map is correct, you can look from there.

Bergama Center

ACCOMMODATION

I chose one of the hotels on Airbnb for accommodation to stay for 1 night and was generally satisfied. If you have a plan to find the hotel or your accommodation from Airbnb and book a place, with an email address that has not been registered with Airbnb before from this link If you register, you get a discount of 130TL for your first stay of 250TL and above.

If you are going to stay in Bergama, if you have time, I suggest you or you can come and travel early in the morning, stay close to the center and walk on foot. For sightseeing, there are not many places that will require you to drive by car, only a few. Since the hotel I stayed in is a good and popular neighborhood called Kale Mahallesi, I parked the car and traveled around the city easily.

You can also find old Greek houses that have been renovated and converted into hotels in this neighborhood. If you have such a request, you can look at these kinds of hotels. My accommodation was previously an old flour factory. It had 8 rooms and breakfast included, I paid 280TL per night. Since I only stayed 1 night, I did not encounter any negative situation, there was hot water, the air conditioner was working properly, and there was no one in the hotel.

EAT

Due to the pandemic, I did not eat anything except breakfast at the hotel, but that does not mean that there will be no wide-time recommendations on this blog, of course. While in Bergama, so many people wrote that you are in my hometown through Instagram, which I learned from them and I wrote the places that I had in mind.

As in most distinguished districts meatball here is the famous Bergama Meatball. Çiçeksever Köfte is recommended for cooking, and besides it is Piyaz.

The real famous of Bergama Çığırt Upsi. If you say what is a scream, eggplant dish, eggplant fries with sauce. If everyone writes that my mother makes it beautiful, if you are not going to be a guest of anyone’s house, you can try this flavor at Bergama Sofrası or Çığırmama Evi.

Breakfast We always come across Yenigün Breakfast Hall, as if it has a simple and simple breakfast. Uncle Eşref, who is almost 100 years old, still helps things there. Honey, cream, cheese, hot milk … a breakfast. I did not have breakfast, but while I was in Bergama, I did not forget to buy Bergama tulum cheese. A mold of cheese was 30TL, but I do not remember exactly its weight. He was a beautiful, salty jumpsuit.

Uncle Eşref, Yenigün Breakfast Hall

Bergama people recommend Arasta even if you want to cool off while drinking and drinking something in the open area. It becomes lemonade, blackberry juice; You can come here for tea, coffee according to the season. There was also the Acacia Park next to the hotel where I was staying, among the beautiful trees, cool, cool, maybe there may be a point to rest, but there is nothing special to eat and drink, just if your path falls.

Casa regina : Here I ate here and I recommend it to you. Approximately 30 minutes by car to Bergama, in Aşağıkırikler village; This is the restaurant of a couple who loves to know the world and also Italian cuisine. There is a pizza in the summer, a menu with meat in the winter, and pasta and accompanying plates. Everything is fresh and daily. You can book one of the days of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as they cannot accept guests without reservations, they are only open on those days. Their location, the garden of the restaurant is so beautiful that you feel as if you are teleported to more than one other land, I highly recommend it. Say hi to me and you will go, I want to drop my way with Fırat again at the first opportunity.

PLACES TO VISIT

1. Ancient City of Pergamon

Bergama Ancient City is one of the important points for the world. He was a very rich and great kingdom at the time, and then joined the Roman Empire. The ancient city is located on a large area where you can have a bird’s eye view of the current Bergama settlement. Although Bergama is not very popular at the moment, it actually has a place in many firsts.

Parchment was first found in Bergama. Parchment, that is, paper from leather, is known as Bergama paper, meaning its name in Latin (Charta Pergamena). The reason for the existence of the scroll is; According to the belief, the King of Egypt prohibits the export of papyrus to Anatolia so that the Pergamon Library does not exceed the Alexandria Library. As such, the King of Pergamum commands to find a new paper, and they process the skins of the kids and make them writable and present them to the king. So parchment was found.

Bergama Ancient City – Steepest Theater

The first Asian libraryWas established in Bergama. After Alexandria in Egypt, a library with 200 thousand volumes of archives was opened and became the second largest library in the world.

Pergamon Ancient Theater, built in the Hellenistic period, the steepest theater in the world is known to be. When you go, you can still see that impressive steeped theater and sit on its stones. If you have an intention to go down, pay attention to having a shoe that provides ease of movement and your knees. By the way, I would go to this ancient city, just to see this theater!

Of course, the sad thing about this city (perhaps not for the sake of still seeing) sold the altar of Athena and Zeus in the ancient city to the Germans who made excavations here during the Ottoman era, while experiencing economic difficulties. In Germany, almost another city is on display at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. This museum is one of the museums in Berlin that received the most visitors all year round. If you are going and have interest, you may have a mind to visit.

Transportation to the Ancient City of Bergama:You can get there by car or cable car. There is a steep slope in only one part of the vehicle, and the road is a size that two cars can pass side by side, but I can not say that it was very difficult, I got out by car. In the season, there is a parking lot next to the ancient city and it was written that the price per vehicle was 8 TL. If you want to go by cable car, this trip, which takes about 5 minutes, costs 35TL.

Entrance fee to Bergama Ancient City: If you have Müzekart, it’s free, if not, login 50TL per person. Considering that the price of Müzekart is 60 TL per year and passed in dozens of museums, I think it would be more appropriate to buy a Müzekart if there is not.

2. Kale District

If you want to see the houses of the Greeks in the streets of Bergama, you can visit this neighborhood. Life still continues in some of the stone houses here, some of them are resentful of neglect, some of them have been renovated and turned into beautiful hotels. While I was walking on the streets in the early hours, I always went to the old uncles, who started the day like that, by greeting with aunts, but it was still very calm. I didn’t even come across anyone on most streets. Since this neighborhood is a little high, you can take a look at the view of Bergama in some places.

Kale Neighborhood

3. Red Courtyard

The Red Courtyard, whose entrance is free with Müzekart, is normally 10 TL, was one of the early 7 churches in Anatolia. This is a temple made entirely of bricks that has survived in the region where Bergama Ancient City was founded. Part of the building, which was built in the 2nd century AD during the reign of Emperor Hadrian and was probably dedicated to the Egyptian underground god Serapis, but was later converted into a mosque together with the Ottoman Empire. Since the day it was built, it has been a place for believers from all walks, both as a temple, a church and a mosque.

Red Courtyard

4. Public Library

While visiting the streets of Bergama, you will see a beautiful building in a central location, with the Bergama Public Library with 14,000 books. It is not surprising to see such a modest building in a city with such a history, but don’t forget to see it passing by.

5. Asclepion

Apart from the acropolis of Pergamon, there is a treatment center established in the name of the god of health, Asclepius, which continues to host the firsts in Bergama. In Asklepion, it can be considered as a spa with a library, theater, sleeping rooms, mud baths and a recreation center.

The snake, the symbol of medicine and pharmacy, was first used here. According to the belief, a patient who comes here sees that at the entrance two snakes drink milk and pour their poisons with milk into this cavity. This patient is not taken to Asklepion with the thought that he will not heal, and the patient wants to end his life by drinking in this cavity, but it does not and heals. Thus, it is decided that the symbol of Asklepion will be a double snake.

Apart from that, Asclepion is in the world; It has also made history as the first to use drug for therapeutic purposes, the first psychotherapy and the first public health policy maker.

Asclepion entrance fee : It is free with Müzekart and the other entrance fee is 45 TL.

Bergama Public Library

6. Bergama Museum

You can see many finds, sculptures, mosaics, rugs and handcrafts found in archaeological excavations carried out in the ancient city of Bergama in this museum. You can also see photos of the works exhibited at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin here.

Entrance fee to the museum is 10 TL, free with Müzekart. Closed on Mondays.

Apart from these, while visiting the center, you can see Pergamon Parchment, the shop that promotes and keeps the parchment in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List, you can have a rest by visiting Arasta, and you can reach the Kozak Plateau if you want to get some air away.

WHAT TO BUY FROM BERGAMA?

The overalls cheese of İzmir is famous, but Bergama overalls are famous, so you can buy cheese.

I mentioned Bergama carpets, but I don’t think there are things that can be bought so easily, it would be nice to look anyway.

When I was there, I met a woman who had a very good initiative, she took Bergama carpets, which the world showed so much attention, and turned it into a business for her. She makes really special bags with handmade antique carpets, adding natural or vegan leathers she uses. These can stand in cabinets or be gifted as a valuable piece, rather than everyday. If you want to browse the bags from here You can look at.

Datça Travel Notes – esrageziyor


I do not know if it is so, but I am still happy and surprised when I go to places like Datça in the country. I am surprised because when I think that everywhere has already been discovered and has been spoiled for some interest, I see that it is not so, it remains calmer. When I see it like this, I am also happy. I think that these bays remind us again and again that we have one of the most beautiful coasts in the world.

OUR MUĞLA ROUTE:Our first job was to fly to Dalaman and then we rented a car to Marmaris. We went to Akyaka because we had a plan with our friends after Marmaris, then we went to Datça, where we went to Dalyan, and went to Göcek at the end of the roads, and returned from Dalaman Airport as we arrived again. If you want to visit more than one place, it is much more logical for Datça and Akyaka to change places in this list.

If you want an alternative route, I think it can be visited in the following order; Datça – Marmaris – Akyaka – Dalyan – Dalaman – Göcek – Fethiye

Datça Travel Notes

MAKE YOU MIND BEFORE YOU GO TO DATCA

– Datça is not a very active holiday destination until 2020. If you want to rest calmly and swim beautifully, this is one of the right addresses for you.

– If you are traveling in the summer, you should not miss the fly medicine with you. If you have a special allergy to bees, you can see many bees there, keep in mind.

– Don’t forget to take your snorkel and goggles! It is very enjoyable to snorkel in the coves.

– Have things like hats, sunscreen, water shoes with you already.

– If you spare at least 2 days, you can enjoy both traveling and twisting.

– One of the most important things you need to be prepared for is curling. Even though some roads are narrow, it is not difficult to proceed with attention, but be careful.

– If you drive by car, it will be comfortable to go with a full tank of gasoline, not too much gasoline, but of course not. I make this suggestion to be comfortable while traveling during the day.

– Across Datça, you may want to manually set the international roaming of your phone. In this way, automatically switching to the Greek line and invoices do not upset you.

– If you are going to Datça in February, do not forget to check the dates of the Almond Flower Festival. It usually takes place within the first 2 weeks of February.

– Your passport and a valid Your Schengen visa If you have one, you can even go by ferry to the Greek island of Simi, just across Datça (8km to Datça).

– Since Datça is still a more boutique holiday place, the prices are higher than normal, especially during the summer and feast times.

Old Datça

TRANSPORTATION

Datça is a district within the provincial borders of Muğla. If you will not go here with your car, which is my suggestion, you are advised to be by car or rent, you can get transportation from 2 different airports.

The first one is Milas-Bodrum Airport. After getting off the airport, you can come to the center of Bodrum by a 90-minute journey by ferry. Or you can reach Bodrum bus station, on average 230 kilometers by land, by bus to Datça. One way price of Bodrum – Datça ferry per person is 70TLThe round trip price is 125TL. It is possible to reach the ferry with this ferry, with an average of 200 TL per vehicle and 35 TL per passenger. (2020, May prices)

Second if you have an airport option Dalaman Airport. By coming here, you can either rent a car or go to Marmaris directly from the airport by public transport and then to Datça. You can reach Dalaman – Datça after 160 kilometers, that is, after an average of 3 hours. It takes 25tl to get to Marmaris from Dalaman Airport by bus, and there is a city bus between Marmaris and Datça, 20tl.

We flew to Dalaman Airport because we made a 2-week Muğla trip and then Likya Rent a Car KasDuring this time, we traveled by renting a car. If you want to ask them about the car rental details, you can reach at 0551 027 44 45, and don’t forget to say that you have reached with the advice of esrageziyor. Daily rental price for 2019 150TL-200TL It was possible to bargain according to the number of days. If you have a car rental idea, you can ask them all.

Public transport : You can also use public transportation in Datça, there are minibuses running on many routes. Most minibuses appear to be around 18.00 but summer / winter hours can change. So wherever you will go to the Muğla municipality website, Distance, you can see the transit times for the routes you want to go.

ACCOMMODATION

Datça is a place where you can find calm and small more boutique accommodation. Average accommodation prices per night for 2 people ranged from 300tl to 500tl for 2019. Of course there are fewer or more, but it is possible to find places that can offer an average clean room and a nice breakfast at this price. If you ask me if you want to swim here, the pool is not a very necessary option, especially if it is not one of your criteria. I think it’s best to be clean and close to the sea.

We are almost 1 kilometer by car from Old Datça Villa coralWe stayed in. The room we stayed in was very small, not very new, but clean. The area where the villa is located had a very nice, quiet, lush garden and a beautiful pool. There was no time to go to the pool from going to the bays in the early hours, but it had the feeling that you had a pool in your own backyard and you were having fun with the children for 2 days during our stay. Although we went in August, it was calm, and it was a decent environment when we were lucky with the guests. My favorite thing about this place was definitely the various jams made by the owner of the hotel, Çiğdem Hanım. Among the places I can recommend to you, at least you can browse.

We were here with Airbnb, the Airbnb link of the hotel here,if you are going to use Airbnb for the first time or by clicking on this link If you create a membership with an email address that you are not a member of before, a 253 TL discount credit will be defined for your first trip. To get the loan, just click on the link to become a member and then you can use this discount loan on your first trip.

If you want to stay right on the sea, in one of the bends, I can recommend you to look at Ovabükü Ada Pension Datca. I have eaten at the restaurants and used the beach side, but I think the accommodation areas can be evaluated as the owners are kind and concerned. Spending 100 lira for 2020, sunbeds / showers on the beach are free for 2 people.

– After pandemic, it is thought that accommodation prices will increase all over the country, so it seems inevitable to increase the average prices I wrote.

Ovabükü / Ada Pension & Restaurant

FOOD

Considering that Datça is a more boutique small resort, you estimate that the prices will be above average. There are many options but there are no prices in the consistency of artisan restaurants. Nevertheless, beautiful olive oil, fish, ice cream and especially Datça soda are among those you can enjoy here. I don’t even know why we can’t find Datça soda around here (Bursa).

We did not go to breakfast anywhere because we had breakfast, a nice breakfast, but apart from that, we ate something in Old Datça, bends, Kumluk and bought soda from every market we found. Datya Datça Gazozu is in the streets, in the markets, in the grocery stores, you guess that the most convenient is in places like market-grocery store. It varies between 2 and 5 liras depending on where you get it. There is also Goca Mongola Soda and Datya Datça Soda, I liked the macaroon taste more in Datça.

We had dinner at Dutdibi Fish Mekan in Datça Kumluk, I can say that the budget you need to allocate for an average of 300-350 liras for 2 people. In Ovabükü, Ada Pansiyon We have tasted sunbed and beautiful appetizers in Datça. For this place, it is necessary to allocate an average of 100-150 lira for 2 people. We were guests of Eski Meydan Café in Old Datça and tasted delicious ravioli (25tl) and stuffed (20tl). We also tried one hundred percent goat milk ice cream in Tekin Usta, I can not remember the price, unfortunately, but I can say that it was normal for me for its taste.

We also went to Datça Vineyard for sunset, watching the view with tasting is popular at the same time, they also sell their wines inside, but whether it is from the environment or not, we could not sit. Already, many people were standing in an unknown way for what reason they were there, but they were not waiting in line. So we couldn’t find what we were looking for, but came back, but maybe it was like us, so I can’t comment, but definitely the environment was beautiful and very windy.

The average prices in Old Datça, which I have reviewed on the signboards in 2019, are as follows;

Spreading breakfast – 35tl

Turkish coffee – 6tl / 9tl

Ravioli – 25tl / 30tl

Homemade Lemonade – 8tl / 12tl

PLACES TO VISIT

The main purpose to come to Datça is bend. If you say what is this twist, the meaning of “turning” should be one of the meanings suitable for the twists of Datça. On the Datça roads where you go to the bends; You will see the sea between the small and large bends, and these are the bays that have been called Bük.

Datça actually has 52 different bays along a peninsula and 235 kilometers of coastline. Let’s see where I have visited, where I have seen, to tell you.

Old Datça

With its stone houses and streets full of beautiful bougainvillea, this is the part of Datça dating back to ancient times: Old Datça. Even though they say boutique hotels, tiny cafes & restaurants, gift shops, they are kind of tiny Alaçatı, I think it was incomparably calm, at least until August 2019. Despite the high season, you can find almost all sides empty during the day in Old Datça. Since there are not many people around 10 o’clock, you can come here at this time to take pictures while you are quietly eating or drinking or enjoying the streets.

You leave the car immediately to the car park at the entrance or to a place you find on the side of the road, and you can easily walk on foot in the traffic-free area. Do not worry anyway, it is not a very large area, even if you go in and out, I think you will see most of your place in half an hour.

Old Datça – Orhan’s Place

Can Yücel’s House

Can Yücel’s house is open only one day a year and it is August 12. Since this day is called Can Yücel as Remembrance Day, they open their house to visit on August 12. Well, if you say Can Yücel and Datça have a connection, Can Yücel has spent some of his life in this house, thus contributing to the knowledge of Datça. On other days, you can go to examine the ones hanging at the door, by the way, even if you can’t get in, you see a little bit of the surroundings.

One of the popular places in Old Datça is that Can Yücel often goes Orhan’s Coffee. If you want to go and drink salvia, keep in mind.

Datça Knidos Ancient City


Knidos Ancient City

When you come to Datça, going to the very end and seeing this ancient city may also bring you the following; How beautiful the guys lived! At least I thought as soon as I saw it. Excavations were going on in August (2019) and it was almost up to date, there wasn’t much you can think of, but it would be worth seeing while one of the most important centers of ancient times, Knidos has come here.

The entrance fee to the ancient city of Knidos is 14₺, if you have Müzekart, it is free.. It is closed on Mondays and the box office closes at 18.00 in the summer.

This is one of the places recommended for sunset, but I have to say that the most winding and challenging roads compared to all Datça were the roads leading to the ancient city and return in the dark after sunset may not be easy. Although the closing time did not coincide with the sunset time, the departures had said that they permitted it. If you go during the day, I must say that I saw a small beach with a small sunbed on the left side, without going into the ancient city. Although there were boats, it was a calm and clean coast.

The best and correct information about the ancient city from this official page readable.

Datça Boat Tour

We did not do our boat tour rights in Datça since we used Marmaris and Göcek in this trip, but you can go on a blue tour with the boats departing from the Kumluk beach in Datça. Like most boat tours, it starts at 10.00 / 10.30 in the morning and returns to the starting point at 18.30 in the evening. In general, on the route of the tours; Dilek Cave, Pig Pit, Palamutbükü, Hayıtbükü, Incekum and Aquarium route. Especially İncekum on this route, I think it is legendary! If you do not plan to go and see at a different time, this tour can be a very good idea.

Aktur Kurucabük


Datca bays & beaches

Aktur Kurucabük

On the way to Datça, it is left on the road. A long, blue flag beach that passes through the holiday complex. Even though it was windy when we left, the beach was calm. There is a restaurant on the shore.

Karaincir Beach

This is a beach that you can go to before you arrive in Datça but after Aktur. As the sea is very shallow, it is generally preferred by families with children. There is a beach with places such as a site and a hostel, and you can put your towel free of charge and swim in the sea. If you are not with children and want to swim, I would say give priority to other bays.

Kargi Bay

Since Kargı Bay is one of the popular places, I suggest you to come here and enjoy it in the early hours. You can stay here for long hours as it will be a bay with a business. Since it is a small bay, it will be advantageous to go early. The way is not so compelling.

Datça Gerence Bay

Kizilbuk & Gabaklar Beach

You can find both names in your location searches on the map. Another bay with facility. Sea stony water is also a little cold. You can also meet the shade in the wooded part that does not want to rent sun beds, but I think you may want to pay attention to the bees that you will encounter in the region for such places.

Hayıtbükü

Hayıtbükü is one of the big bays compared to the others and it is one of the places where families with children are loved by its shallow waters. It is also popular for being windless, but often crowded. You can swim in the sun lounges or by laying your towel aside here. Of course, due to the popularization, parking lot and more businesses started to take place. For lovers of organized beaches, this may be a good option.

Ovabuku

Ovabükü is one of the beaches where you can spend both day and night. It can make you happy as a quiet holiday place where you can spend your days with restaurants, pensions and apartments right by the sea as well as the parts where you can sprinkle your towel and swim in the sea. Especially if you do not go at full busy time, it would be nice to stay in the calm of this bay, a few steps from the sea. On the sea side, there is also a sea style that families with children will love. It is also possible to park the cars on the nearby streets and get to the beach easily.

Barbuci Bükü

Barbuci Bükü

Barbuci has a magnificent view from above, especially when walking on curving roads. It has a stony and cheaper sea and a coastal bay. It is possible to go up to the edge of the bay by car and as far as I can see, it is also preferred for tent accommodation.

Akçabük Beach

Another beach without facilities is Akçabük. If you like to spend the day in a bay by taking your own umbrella, you can have a look here. It is possible to go to the edge of the bay with your vehicle. There are also trees for those who want shade.

Gerece Beach & Aquarium Bay

A very beautiful bay with clear water like a pool. You go down the bay from a slightly steep path and spread your towel where you find it. If you want to spend long hours, which I suggest, don’t forget to take your umbrella and something to have a picnic with. You can also park your car under the trees if you go early, or you can see cars lined up by the roadside.

Palamutbükü

Palamutbükü

We came to Datça’s most popular bend, Palamutbükü! Facilities, sunbeds, once again saying a beautiful azure water … When you come to Datça, you will not pass without seeing them. You can catch calm in the early hours, but it is also crowded because it is one of the most touristic places. So you might want to make your plan accordingly. If you want to stay a few steps from the sea, you can also take a look at the accommodation here.

WHAT TO BUY FROM DATCA

If you like shopping in the places you go, there are of course you can also buy from Datça.

You can look at olives and olive oil, honey almond is the first thing that comes to mind and you may want to buy wines made from grapes produced in Datça. In the evening, you can browse the stalls on the Palamutbükü side in the center, or buy souvenirs from the boutique shops in Old Datça.

If you are going to Marmaris, you can get the honey from there.

12 Tips That Work For You


Perhaps Google is the place where we all hit the road in the internet world, at least that. Whether you are an inexperienced user or an experienced professional, the advanced Google search techniques I shared in this article will work for you.

Google is a search site that I try to use all kinds of milk from meat. There are so many simple words for some searches that you might say I don’t know how. It is very likely that you will know some of them, but if there is something that you do not know and interest, it will be easily remembered because you reach the result you want to search in a few words.

What else can you do on Google besides searching for words or a person? What can we learn from Google? What are the little-known Google search tips? What is possible to do with Google search shortcuts? How to take advantage of all this?

Here I have listed the search tips for the short answers of all these questions;

1. Use Tabs

If you use the tabs correctly in Google searches, you can reach the information you are looking for in a much shorter time. Along with every search line, there are many tabs at the bottom just like all, shopping, news, images, videos and more. If you are just looking for visuals, if you want to see videos about the image or what you write, clicking directly on the Video tab will make it much easier to find what you are looking for.

2. Complete Sentence Search

If you want all the words you wrote to appear in the results, Quotes (“) use. If you want to access Amsterdam travel posts, “Amsterdam travel writings” If you do, the results containing these 3 words in a row will be listed in front of you. Of course, when you search like this, the results containing “Amsterdam writings” will not be listed, you should also know this. Getting quotes when you want to find the results that contain all of the words you are looking for is one of the search methods that make it easier and shorter.

3. Using Wildcards

*

As a wildcard when you remember a piece of information missing Star (*) You can use the sign. If you say how this works for you, you can reach the conclusion of Berlin instead of stars for information such as “* wall collapsed in 1989”. Or, when you write the war with Mustafa Kemal Atatürk *, which has wider results, information about the wars he participated in will be listed.

4. Search Within a Specific Website

If there is information you need inside a site you know, go to the Google search box without going to that site ”site:”Is enough to add. “Site: esrageziyor.com paris” If you write in a format such as, the search results you want to find directly will be listed. If you want to search specifically for all sites that belong to educational institutions, for example, then you can search by typing the word you want to search in the “site: edu _______” space.

5. Searching for a Specific File Type

The word that should be used for this ” filetype: ”And then write the 3 letter file name. filetype: You can search for files like DOC, XLS, PPT with terms like PDF.

6. Using Google as a Calculator

=

If you want to transact with Google at that time, just write the numbers and transactions you want directly. Enter the math equation and enter the end = If you write ”, you can reach the result.

7. Exchange Rate Calculation

I use this method frequently to quickly see the Turkish Lira equivalent of the ticket, especially when I look at the flight ticket. To find the daily exchange rate in the search bar, currency = TL If you write, you can see that day’s rate. Or if you want to find out in which currency it corresponds to what currency after typing the whole number and equals, just write the name of that currency.

Converting Units of Measure

It is a very practical way especially for measurement units that we do not use. You can convert numbers and measurement units to different units by writing to Google. ” 1 mile = km You can reach the result by searching as “or” 1 barrel = liter “.

9. Searching for Flight Schedules and Prices

I also use Google frequently to see the times and prices of flights from one place to another. It lists almost all flights between the directions I am looking for. You can see the flights and prices on this line when you search by typing “Flights from Adana to Istanbul”. Another way of searching is to search in English, so more results are possible. With a search like “flights from Istanbul to Rome”, you can browse the flights between the cities you want.

10. Learning the Time in a Place

time: If you write the name of the country / city where you want to learn the time and then you can see the time in the place you are writing. If you want “hour:You can also search by typing. English uses are much better in terms of international results. Also for the sunrise ” sunrise: “Also for sunset” sunsetYou can find out the day hours of the city you will travel or any city by using the words:.

11. Finding Similar Web Pages

If you have web pages that you love very much, or if you have found good information and are looking for similar pages,related: You can use the term ”. For example, if you are looking for sites like esrageziyor.com, just search by typing ”related: esrageziyor.com”.

12. Viewing an Address on the Map

If you want to write the name of the place you are looking for and see it directly on the map, it is enough to use the word “map”. If you look at the address of everything, such as city name, hospital name or park name, you can search by typing its name + map.

Google

Rome Travel Notes – esrageziyor


After living in Italy for a while, I try to blend all my articles about Italy with some good knowledge, but when starting the Roman writing, I feel like I never wrote a blog post. Rome fascinates me every time, but I start without knowing how the sentences will be sufficient in how I will describe it in writing language.

In this article, I have included all the details as much as possible when you go to Rome, what to eat, how to get there, where to stay, what tips to make your travel easier.

For sightseeing, for sightseeing “Places to Visit in Rome” You can look at the article, I detailed it in a separate title.

Rome is the capital of Italy. It is also the capital of the Lazio region and the city of Rome. As a city of 2800 years, Rome is the most populous city in Italy and its population is approximately 4 million. In their conversations, Italians generally consider the part they qualify as true Italy as Rome and above. Rome is so rich in history that it is not possible to ignore it, but it is interesting that they always describe the North as true Italians.

Let them think so, the city is like an open-air museum, but also the Vatican, an independent country in which the spiritual leader of the Catholics lived, the Pope. Despite all the wars in its time, Rome, with its structures still living for hundreds of years; It is one of the cities that millions of tourists visit every year and shows that this popularity is not wasted at all.

Rome Travel Notes

Via Giulia, Rome

GENERAL INFORMATION

Visa:Italy for Bordeaux passport holders Schengen visa wants. The official intermediary institution, Idata, for the Italian visa, there’s You can review the details.

Location: Rome is located in the middle of Italy, between the Tiber and Aniane rivers, close to the Mediterranean.

Native language:The main language in Italy is Italian. You can easily understand English in touristic areas, even though they sometimes have difficulty in understanding their English, as they are usually read as written.

Currency unit:Since Italy is a country in the Schengen region, Euros are used everywhere.

Ideal Days:I believe that you should devote at least 3 full days to Rome. I am sure that if you increase the days, you can still find places to see.

Which Season to Go:Although it is always a beautiful city, it is very hot and crowded in summer, if possible, do not plan your trip to summer. It won’t be bad, but if you are going to go, I recommend you to be in your hotel with air conditioning in your room at noon to avoid hot weather. Apart from that, the best times are spring months. Spring and Autumn are very beautiful and warm in this city. The winter months are not too cold, but the chance of rain is high. Whenever you go, the city will definitely be alive and crowded! By the way, I should add that August is a month when almost all of Italy and Italians go on holiday, so even some restaurants can be closed for a long time.

Telephone line:If you are going to get a telephone line for internet or calls during your travel in Italy, I have 2 suggestions; First Vodafone Turkey calls and 40 minutes including internet + 25GB sim card fee for the first month with Italy next months € 10 € 25 minutes inside. The other is the economic option Iliad, which I have not tried, although the quality of the shot is said to be poor in some places. 50gb internet, I do not know the minutes, but the first month is 17 € for the sim card fee, 7 € for the following months. When buying a phone line, you have to say “PrePaid “that is, it is from the prepaid lines in us. At the same time, even if I don’t know the details, you can look at Wind and TİM brands. (Your passport is enough for Vodafone, I don’t know the others)

Tiber River, Rome

Rome City Transportation

Since walking is the best way to discover cities, Rome is one of the cities that fits this definition the most. As you walk, you can see a hundred-year-old column in this city, which is not on the account, and you can find sweet Vespas parked in the streets and Fiat 500s with black plates.

If you see a car with a black license plate, know that it is still the first owner and original.

Still valid for all public transport (bus, metro, tram…) vehicles when you need public transport one way ticket 1.5 € and you need to have it confirmed before the first boarding. After validating (validating), the ticket is valid for 100 minutes and you can transfer.

The 24-hour public transport ticket in the city is 7 € uro, the 48-hour ticket is 12.5 € uro and the 72-hour ticket is 18 € uro.

In Rome, both for public transportation and for walking Google Maps you can use it, it is one of the applications that works just fine. The part that Google Maps lists public transports is very useful, especially when you are wondering how to go anywhere you want to go by public transport! I should remind you that you can not use without internet, but if you will need public transport frequently, you can travel very very easily if you buy daily tickets and make sure you have internet.

Rome City Map, Rome Metro Map and illustration maps that you can download and use on your phone on my Pinterest page I gathered together.

Campo di Fiori, Rome


ACCOMMODATION

Perhaps one of the most mind-blowing points when planning a trip to Rome will be accommodation but not. No way, because there are so many options in the central parts that if you found a place in one of the regions I shared, it is enough to make your reservation.

I have suggestions for central places considering that you will walk Rome on foot. I guess it would not be wrong to say that if I say the central part of the places to see and see within the rectangle surrounded by Termini train station, Spanish Steps, Navona Square and Colosseum. So staying somewhere near Piazza Navona, Pantheon and Trevi Fountain will help you discover this city on foot. (Look at the locations I said on the map and pay attention to the proximity of the places you choose to stay in by walking to this area)

If you want to find an affordable but centrally located accommodation, you can look at Termini and its surroundings. As it is a more immigrant region, it is generally known as a region where you should pay more attention to security, but if you find a place with good comments and you can choose it. Here, too, you have a lot of options for transportation, but it is not a walkable distance.

Most hotels in Rome are not famous for their money, remember this.

Other regions that are central are; Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Square), Piazza Barberini and Via Del Corso.

On our first trip to Rome, we stayed at Via Del Corso in August, making a point-by-point selection. Our hotel, which was very convenient at the time, has now reached Roman standards, but since it still has good reviews, here I’m leaving.

Next time, I stayed in a very central Airbnb house. It is possible to find very beautiful Airbnb houses, some of which have exquisite views, near the places I have already written. One time here and once here I left your links for you to browse for our stay.

If you are considering using Airbnb to stay on the trip or buy experience from this link As a member, you can get a discount loan of 223 TL.

La Casa Del Caffe Tazza D’oro, Rome


AVERAGE PRICES

I think Italy is neither too expensive nor too cheap among European cities. Of course, it is always possible to find much more affordable prices in the local areas of Southern Italy and most cities, but in cities as popular as Rome, everything can be expensive if you don’t study well. So don’t forget to mark the restaurants that fit your budget before you go.

Accommodation: We can say the average of hostel per person is 20 € uro. It is possible to find a nice hotel or Airbnb in the average of 100 € uro.

Coffee -1 € uro at the bar but if you sit down you can drink 3 €

Beer – ranging from € 2 to € 5

Sandwich – possible to find between 3 € and 5 €

Slice pizza – between 1 € – 4 €

Eating at the restaurant – You can think of the average per person as 15 € -20 €

Dessert – 3 € – 5 €

You don’t have to pay for water in Rome because you can drink water from all fountains, it’s free and clean.

If you are planning an economical, low-budget trip, you can already mark the following markets in almost every part of the city on your map; Coop, Pam Local, Carrefour / Carrefour Express. If you find Lidl, it will be the most economical. And the bigger the market, the more likely it is to find affordable products. At the same time, some of these markets have sections where you can take your ready meal and heat it in the microwave.

It is frequently found in markets, especially in Carrefour, and packed 2 € Focaccia are both savior and delicious.

There are 2 markets in Roma Termini train station; Coop and Mercato Centrale Roma. These can also work for you.

Pizza Ai Marmi, Rome


EAT

If Italy means pizza, pasta and seafood; It is certain that you can find very nice options in Rome. There is one thing you need to be careful about while eating in Italy. coperto! Coperto means couverture fee and usually 2 € -3 €, I have seen up to 4 € in many touristic places. Whether you sit and drink coffee or eat, the coperto fee determined by the restaurant / cafe will be added to your account per person. Look at the menus knowing this so that you don’t say why this account came like this.

Another issue is coffee! Italians have very different ties to coffee, so you can easily find coffee everywhere. If you drink coffee in the bar section of the cafe, you should probably pay the coperto price if you sit down and drink it. Some small shops do not buy coperto, but if this is important to you, be sure to ask the coperto status before sitting down.

The most important item is siesta hours! By typing the name of the restaurant you will go to Google, it shows what times it is open, do not go without looking. Some are open for both noon and evening service, while others only open in the evening, 19:00 or later. The same goes for cafes and markets. Siesta time is usually between 12:00 and 15:00 and cafes, patisseries, markets, sandwich shops, shops… many places that you can think of may be closed during this time period. Even being in a very touristic city does not change this fact. (I will repeat that you are going to this city or even Italy in August, it is possible that most of the small shops are closed because it is the month of August holiday for Italians as a country)

If you are buying alcohol from supermarkets, remember that there is no alcohol sale after 22 o’clock in the evening. Of course you can find different places that are open, but they will not be at supermarket prices.

Let me continue by explaining what you can try in Italy in general;

Carpaccio: Thinly sliced ​​raw meat or fish, with olive oil and lemon

Insalata caprese: Tomato mozzarella cheese

Frutti di mare: seafood

Bresaola: Dry meat

Prosciutto: Italian ham, pork

Risotto: Rice cooked in broth

Gnocchi : Food in the form of tiny meatballs made of potato

tiramisu : Mascarpone, egg, sugar and coffee flavored cocoa dessert

zabaione : Dessert or drink made with egg yolk, sugar and sweet wine

Panna cotta : Dessert made of gelatin, sugar cream and fresh fruit

Father : A cake moistened with rum from Naples, also known as Rum Babà

Limoncello: A very common liquor in the south of Italy, obtained by immersing lemon in alcohol

Grappa: Alcoholic beverage, a grape-based pomace brandy

Campari: Alcoholic lycra made from plants and fruits

Aperol: A red liquor from Rhubarb and bitter orange extract

Venchi for ice cream, Pompi for tiramisu (4 €), Pastificio Guerra for pasta (4 €) and Antico Caffe Greco for cafe will be the most mentioned places in the suggestions. Even though I didn’t say wow for dessert or pasta, it is a very fresh and delicious option. Moreover, it is very pleasant to chat with people in every shop!


What I know and try are:

For gelato (ice cream)Gelateria La Romana (my favorite) or Fatamorgana. It is possible to find more than one of these two shops in Rome and the price per ball is 2.5 € on average.Pizza for Pizzeria Ai Marmi in Trastevere, the pizza average was 6 € -10 €. Coffee For La Casa Del Caffe Tazza D’oro or Sant Eustachio Il Cafe right near the Pantheon. Here you pay an average of 1 € for an espresso and 2.5 € for cappuccino at the bar. Sandwich for La Baguetteria.

To Google Maps “Pizza Al Taglio” If you type and search, you can find slice pizzerias closest to your location. Generally a good tip for finding affordable snacks.

I will also share a website where you can find dozens of choices about food. The best terrace bars, panoramic restaurants, pastas, pizzas, bakeries… Now, whatever you want, add them to your map by paying attention to their location and opening times. For many venue suggestionshere Just click.

If I have a last tip about eating and drinking, if you want to see the average prices for the restaurant you will go to, Google Maps is the place to look again. It is possible to see prices especially in the photos and comments section.

Piazza Navona, Rome


SHOPPING

Food

One of the most popular products to buy from Italy is pasta. You can find many places. Apart from that, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, limoncello and cheese are among the most purchased things. There are special shops that sell each of these as well as supermarkets where you can find the most suitable ones. I especially recommend you buy parmesan or gran padona cheese. They are sold as molds and you can find them in almost any market. You can also buy grated parmesan package or mozzarella. Since there will be water in Mozzarella, you should pay attention to its packaging. Probably one of the most convenient and delicious things that can be bought will be mozzarella because it usually starts from 50 cents.

Fashion

Although not as much as Milan, you can easily find design boutiques in Rome. Apart from that, many daily brands will be observed in the streets. Via del corso and on the streets surrounding Piazza Spagna, you can find many familiar shops.

Prada, Gucci, Armani, Bvlgari If you want to find shops like street Via dei Condetti and from there you can continue walking to Via Veneto.

market

Of course, there are street markets in Rome where you can find everything. Close to Trastevere, which opens only on Sundays and closes at 14. Porta portese The market is like our markets, everything is there, and you can find some of them at more affordable prices than stores. Mercato dei fioriVegetable, fruit and flower market open every morning. Piazza Fontanella Borghese The market is open every day except Sundays and there are often stalls on stamps, books and antiques.

Places to visit in Rome – esrageziyor


After writing a long article that gave general information about Rome, I decided that it would be better for me to travel and write the places to see under a separate heading, and in this article I explained the places you need to visit and see when you go to Rome.

First of all, I should remind you to write “Rome Travel Notes” in which I give important tips and write information about accommodation, restaurant with restaurant suggestions, transportation from the airport and city transportation, shopping and many other general information, and I give important tips. It will work.

Lets start then…

How many days should you devote to Rome?

It is best to spare 3 days to visit Rome properly! If you take it for 4 days, the places you will see and visit will not be over and you will have more time to get lost in the streets and accompany the Italian siestas. If you have less time, of course go and see the most interesting ones for you as I write below. Of course, especially for those who have little time, my advice is to make a good plan and use the time with high quality. Mark the places you want to see on your map, and if you ask me, the Colosseum, Trevi, Navona and the Spanish Square, and of course the Vatican, are among the places you shouldn’t return without seeing. Others are up to you.

* All prices in the article are current prices for 2020.

In Italy, most museums and ruins are free on the first Sunday of every month. If your trip coincides with this time, do not forget to check it out.

What is the name of the 7 hills of Rome?

Rome has 7 hills in real sense, 5 of them (Aventine, Caelian, Esquiline, Quirinal and Viminal) are covered with monuments and parks, while Capitol from the other 2 hills has Roman Municipality, Palatine is still present as an archaeological site.

How to Travel?

If possible, stroll through Rome. While walking among the main buildings you want to see, you can see many historical monuments, small squares and beautiful views. If you mark every place you want to see on your map and plan your day in advance; you will not miss any place while traveling.

If you are going to use public transportation, look at what, from where and where, on average, in minutes. If you ask if it makes sense to rent a car in Rome, I think not at all. This will be more trouble than comfort. Likewise, difficulties in finding a car park, the rules you must obey, and the uncertainty of the roads and sections without entrance may put you in trouble.

You only need to know that no matter what time of the year you go to Rome, it is a city with a crowd of tourists. If you need a solution to deal with crowds, I think the best way to do this is to start sightseeing when the day starts to light. You can always go to fountains in open squares until the places with opening hours such as museums and archaeological sites open, and you can take the photos you want in front of crowded buildings during the day. If you start the day at 08:00 or 09:00 like everyone else, most places will be crowded.

I suggest you pay attention to the warm weather, siesta hours and the closedness of the places you want to go in August, which is the holiday period of the Italians, especially if you are in Italy and Rome in the summer season.

Walking and Bus Tours

As in most European cities, there are free walking tours in Rome and bus tours, which are called paid hop on-hop offs.

For free walking tours “Rome free walking tourWhen you make a general search from Google by typing, you have many options. You can also visit one of those who have a good interpretation and visit someone who knows and describes the city. These walking tours usually take place twice in the morning and afternoon. The tours are really free, but generally, at the end of the tour, you are welcome to tip the person who walks you and explains it.

Hop on-hop off so you do it by bus; The price of the tours, where you can get on the other bus on the route where you get off at a stop and then buy the tour, starts from 23 € uro for those over the age of 16. These tours, which have different ticket options from 24 hours to 72 hours, can also be a good option for those who do not have time and want to tour the entire city in a short time without getting off the bus. From here You can review.

If you are one of those who like to check and plan the activities in the cities you go to here You can look at.

ROMAPASS

Of course, there are also cards that are advantageous when traveling around the cities, and there is also a Rome Pass. The official site of the Roma Pass is primarily here.The 48-hour card is 28 € and the 72-hour card is 38.5 €. In both of them, public transportation is free during the hours you receive and offers discounts in various places.

With the 48-hour card, 1 museum or archaeological site you will enter first is free, and with the 72-hour card, the first 2 museums or archaeological sites are free. Cards can be taken if you are going to take advantage of your travel, depending on the entrance fees and whether you will use public transportation.

With this card, free entry to the Colosseum is valid, but they suggest making a reservation 10 days in advance and it says that they will receive a 2 € plus fee for online reservations. Free entrance to the Vatican is not possible with Romapass. Details and purchases are available on the website.

Colosseum, Rome

Colosseum Entrance fee: 16 € (valid for 24 hours)

The Colosseum is a flavian amphitheater standing in the center of this city for hundreds of years. Although it is known as the amphitheater, it has taken its place in the history scene as an arena that has witnessed bloody fights in the past. It was completed in the 80’s (80 we know) titus period.

If you don’t see the Colosseum for someone who comes to Rome for the first time, it’s a kind of building. Although it has been very well preserved compared to previous years, it is much more impressive than me. The ticket you bought for the Colosseum is also valid for the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. If you buy the ticket at the box office, you may want to go early, otherwise you can enter the queues where you have to wait 1 hour.

If you want to browse the Colosseum from a different angle, the name of the street you should mark on your map Via Nicola Salvi. Another one Via Deli Anibaldi ’bridge in.

It always opens at 08.30, but the closing times change in 7 different months and it usually closes between 17:00 or 19:00. It is important to check if you are going to go in the evening. Closed from December 25 to January 1. Link of the official site if you want to buy tickets online hereYou can see all the details from there.

Roman Forum, Rome


ROMAN FORUM & PALATINE HILL
/ Entrance Fee: 16 € (Valid ticket for the Colosseum)

The Roman Forum section is the area where the ruins of the central region where Rome flourished. You can take a walk around the Roman forum and take a look at the establishment of the ancient Roman Empire. Although most of them can be seen walking on the sidewalks near the ruins, if you bought a ticket for the Colosseum or if you are interested, of course it is worth visiting.

Palatine Hill is one of the hills of 7-hill Rome and one of the oldest places in the city. You can watch the old ruins, the Colosseum and Circus Maximus from a panoramic view. This place is 40 meters high before moving on to the Roman Forum. Since the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill hill are included in one ticket, don’t forget to plan your time accordingly.

Açılış The opening and closing hours and the days when they are closed are the same as the Colosseum.


FONTANA DI TREVİ (Fountain of Love)
/ Free

This fountain, whose name is Trevi because it is located at the crossroads of three roads or because the three underground waterways are gathered at this point, is one of the most iconic points of Rome! Whenever the day rises in the season you go, if you are in Trevi at that time, it is a fountain where you can catch unmanned hours. Of course, it is very likely that you will encounter couples who usually take photos at those times.

It is forbidden to go right next to the fountain in summers and busy times in the summer, but other times you can pose as you like, without touching the borders and sitting. I even read news that they will install a protection barge in this area in the near future, but hopefully they will not, it is a really enjoyable action to sit on the edges and watch the fountain and examine the details.

The Trevi fountain is actually one of the newest buildings in Rome. If I said new, this fountain, whose construction was completed in 1762, is now 258 years old. Giuseppe Panini completed the fountain that Nicola Salvi started to make when he passed away. The fountain is located in a small square, 26 meters high and 49 meters wide, where 3 streets (tre vie – three streets) meet.

FONTANA dell ‘ACQUA PAOLA / Free

This is another fountain. I wrote right after Trevi because this is one of the beautiful fountains that was never popular. The Acqua Paola Fountain was built in a beautiful hill in 1612 as the end point of the aqueduct. This fountain is located in the upper parts of Trastevere, so it is not very popular. I think it’s a fountain worth seeing if you have time, but it’s definitely a bit tiring when walking out.

Pantheon, Rome


PANTHEON
/ Free

Pantheon was originally built as a temple for all the gods of Ancient Rome, while today it is used as the structure where famous people are buried. Panteon, which has been used as a church since the 7th century, is the oldest concrete domed building in Rome. The diameter of this dome is 43 meters, and the middle of the ceiling of the dome is open in a circle. This opening was called “Oculus”. Although it is a belief that it does not enter from here when it rains, it is not true, but how they made such a dome from concrete in time still remains a mystery.

Since the Pantheon is free, it is one of the most crowded places. It opens at 08.30 and a mini row is formed at the door and they take it inside. My advice to you is to go to the opening time and travel comfortably.

If you want to have a nice angle photo with Pantheon, you can catch a nice angle for yourself in the fountain in front of you.

Except Sundays, it is open between 08.30 and 19.15, while Sundays are open between 09:00 and 18:00. Closed on January 1, May 1, December 25.

Spanish Square – Spanish Steps – Barcaccia Fountain – Trinita dei Monti, Rome


SPANISH SQUARE / SPANISH STAIRS

Spanish Square is one of the most popular squares in Rome. The stairs next to the square are also very popular. I have to say from the beginning that it is now forbidden to sit on the stairs. Previously, take your pizza, sit on the stairs and watch the food and eat, but it is no longer possible. On the stairs, an attendant is always waiting to warn him when he sees a negative behavior, moreover they even write a penalty in cases. Still, it is possible to stand up and take a photo, but they do not want you to do this for a long time as they make such a decision because the stairs are so worn out.

The square takes its name from the Spanish Palace where the Spanish Embassy is located. In the middle of the square is a fountain made by Bernini and his son from the Baroque period; Fontana della barcaccia Do not pass without paying attention to him either. When you go up the stairs there is a church, a Catholic French church Trinita dei Monti. There is an obelisk right in front of the church. Do not pass without a glance while you are here and look out over Via dei Condotti street from the church’s balcony.

Although Spanish is mentioned here, the church and its surroundings are the responsibility of the French state.

Navona Square, Rome


NAVONA SQUARE

My favorite square in Rome! When it comes to fountains, benches, night mobility, restaurants along the square; a very high energy square. Even one of the Airbnb home links I shared in the accommodation was just a 5-minute walk from this square.

This is MS. It was the Domitianus Stadium in the 1st century, and the square was built on top of its location. There are three separate fountains in the square, on both ends and in the middle. The most popular fountain in the middle Bernini‘S; Symbolizing the Ganges, the Nile, Rio de la Plata and the Danube Four Rivers Fountain.

There is also the Catholic church of San Luigi dei Francesi, which was opened in 1589 in this square.

If you want to sit in this square and watch the square by eating or drinking something, when you come across the Fountain of the Four Rivers, you have Coop Market in one of the intervals where the square ends to the left.

HOLY ANGEL CASTLE / SANT’ANGELO CASTLE / Entrance Fee: 20.50 €

The building, built by the Roman Emperor Hadrianus as a mausoleum for himself and his family, was later used as a papal fortress. The building, which was once the tallest building in Rome, is located on the banks of the Tiber River and is now open to visitors as a museum.

In 1277, an 800-meter tunnel connecting the castle to the Vatican is built, thereby creating a safe path for the Pope to escape if he is in danger. However, after everyone knows this information, he cannot help but think about how the security part will be.

It is a beautiful park even to cool off under a tree in the hottest times, but there is much more to it. Many buildings in Villa Borghese as museums Borghese Walesand a landscape garden with attractions. The area is so large that you can rent a bike and travel.

Campo de Fiori, Rome


CAMPO DE FİORİ

A tiny but popular square in Rome, where its name means Flower Field / Field. Here you can see that vegetables, fruits and flowers are sold during the day. Like almost every square in Rome, there is a statue in the middle of the square and restaurants on the edges. If you want to see a small but cute square, this is also a few streets south of Navona square, you can drop your way while walking. It might be nice to photograph the houses here.

Although it looks like a green area today, it was used as an ancient hippodrome and a gathering place for mass entertainment. The area built in the valley between Aventine and Paletine hills is one of the parts that can be taken on a walking route.

Bocca Della Verita, Rome


BOCCA DELLA VERITA /
Free

This is a relief made of human face on marble, placed on the porch of Santa Maria’s Cosmedin church. It was believed that someone who put his hand in the mouth of the relief in the Middle Ages would be bitten if he was lying. Even though one of the medieval legends is like this, it is still one of the places I share on the road route so that you don’t overlook it. If you are not going to take a photo, you can see it from behind the fence and continue on your way.

Marcellus Theater, Rome


MARCELLUS THEATER

Marcellus, Ancient Roman theater. Marcellus, which you will see as a similar structure after the Colosseum, is not as lucky as the Colosseum. The construction of the 111-meter-high theater, with a capacity of 11,000 people, was opened by Augustus in the 12th year before Christ. Although it is very difficult to understand whether the top floor of Marcellus, which is one of the structures that are not so popular for tourists, is used as a home or office, I could not think why Rome did not take such a step for this place. It wasn’t open to visitors when I went, but the outside is in a location where you can easily see it from the outside.

Piazza Venezia, Rome


PIZAZZA VENESIA / VENESIA SQUARE

Venezia is located at the junction of Capitol Hill where Via dei Fori Imperiali and Via del Corso are located.

TRASTEVERE

Trastevere is the name of a district that is on the other side of the Tiber River, not a place you should especially see. This place has not attracted the attention of tourists for a very long time and remained as a place where only the locals know, go to drink wine, eat pizza. When the situation changes in a place, Travtevere, which has a bohemian atmosphere, has become a place where you can make enjoyable aperitivo hours because the tourists go a lot.

The availability of places where prices are suitable, especially between 17: 00-20: 00, -aperitivo- has caused young people to spend more time here and stay. I recommend you take your time and walk the streets of Trastevere. If you are there during the hours I said, you can also sit in a place where you see reasonable prices on the sign.

It is not difficult to come here. You can go to the other side of the river from one of the bridges in the city and walk to Trastevere from the map looking at the location. In fact, those who stay in this region generally say that they like to stay in this part, I haven’t tried it yet, but I have in mind for my next Rome trips.
