First of all I want to say that Rome Italy is one of the most beaustiful places on earth and everyone should go at least once. For women traveling alone or thinking of traveling alone, don't be scared and used common sense. I am telling you of my experience, not to scare you into staying home or not going to Rome , but to not stay at a particular hotel. This post though does apply to any place you choose to go in the world.

I was recently traveling to Rome and Venice as a birthday present. I have been to Italy many mnay times before and I absolutely love it. I travel alone and it doesn't bother me. But one needs to have common sense.

Our guide allowed us to skip the long line and with his Master’s in Ancient History, I felt as though I could point at anything and he would explain. Statues, tapestries, paintings – I walked around with my mouth hanging open in awe for nearly three hours.

The Colosseum is a sight in itself, but walking around the Roman forum allows you to almost picture the scenes that went down. I didn’t take a tour, but merely walked around picturing the emperors and ministry that stood at that very spot. It’s hard to turn a corner without falling into another ancient ruin. Amazing to wander, grab a gelato from a nearby stand and sit for a while and daydream!

Great shopping! Despite several warnings, most of the shops are open on Sunday except for a siesta period from 13:00 – 14:00. Luckily, I opted for a late lunch and sat by the lovely Trevi fountain while I waited for the shops to re-open.
Being a lady in Italy…well, it’s a different experience in itself. “Ciao bella!” can often be heard following you as you wander through the street. Smile graciously and enjoy the compliments!

In case you're arriving to the city by rail, I'd suggest to stay away from Roma Termini station at night. The hotels near the station aren't too bad but i wouldn't recommend it if you know you'll be getting back late or want to go out to bars from there. The last time I was there I stayed near Campo de fiori for a few weeks and to be honest, I felt quite safe. But definitely watch your pockets when riding the metro at rush hour.

I agree, while Rome is fairly safe when you go to tourist areas there are tons of people trying to rip you off or pick-pocket. I was in Rome alone for a few days a couple of years ago and I didn't feel especially scared or anything.

Just be very aware of your surroundings and make some friends and you should be fine.

Rome is a safe town. I never felt worried as I walked around at night. There are gypsies who will try to sell you things. A popular scheme is tying coloured thread around your finger and charing upwards of 15EU for it. Termini station is the center stop of both of Italy's metro lines and so is a populate well policed area. There are restaurants and good hostels/hotels nearby too. Have an amazing holiday!
