Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) March 6, 2006
When in Rome... or so the saying goes, do as the Romans do. Many vacationers are learning to do precisely that as travelers change how they explore new cities around the world.
There has been a noticeable shift in how many Americans travel in cities throughout Europe and the rest of the world. In previous years many vacationers stayed in close proximity to their hotel, or they ventured out on guided tours rather than exploring a city by foot or by car.
Even in popular destinations like Rome, vacationers were often reluctant to stray too far off the beaten track. As more travelers are gaining confidence in their ability to maneuver through the friendly streets of Rome and other world cities, car rentals have increased in popularity and travelers are seeing cities in more depth and breadth.
Many vacationers in Rome, for example, enjoy the flexibility and freedom to explore all of the sites throughout the legendary city and surrounding areas by taking to the friendly streets of Rome by car. Many vacationers have learned that a day trip to Pisa or one of the quaint towns that surround Rome can help punctuate a Rome vacation.
The travel industry has historically taken a keen interest in Rome vacation packages and paying careful attention to trends in Rome vacations. Companies have noted the increase in car rentals for Rome vacationers and have started including car rentals with their Rome vacation packages.
There has been a notable change in how vacationers enjoy a city. As more vacationers look for freedom and independence on their vacations they seek destinations that are easy to drive around or walk around including legendary Rome.
As more Americans look towards the quality of life and as the economy in the United States continues to gain momentum, Italy vacation packages will continue to grow in popularity, especially Rome vacation packages.
