Things to bring (and not to)
Having a camera with you is your choice. Someone prefers to immerse in beauty not being distracted by taking pictures/making videos, someone else prefers to build printable memories of his trip. It’s really up to you.
If you are travelling to Rome in Spring/Summer time, it is highly recommended to bring with you a hat, high protection sun cream, sunglasses, water and wear comfortable shoes. In case of inside visit in Pantheon and/or St. Peter’s Basilica (on your own) remember to bring a scarf to cover your shoulders (for women) and not to wear shorts, sleeveless or short skirts.
In Fall/Winter time instead, it is highly recommended to have an umbrella or a raincoat and wear waterproof shoes.
