When visiting Rome this so much to see. There’s no way that you can really appreciate the city in a day or so, however you can take in some of the best attractions in one day. So here are some tips that can help you navigate through the city in the shortest time possible.
When traveling it’s always a plus to try to take in as many sites that are close together as possible so you get the most bang for your buck. First one is obviously the Coliseum. I’m sure most of you reading this have seen the movie Gladiator, and when you first see it and know that it’s been there for over 2000 years, it really makes you appreciate it that much more. And there is nothing like looking at it at night when it’s all lit up.
But to get inside and really appreciate it you have to go there in the daytime. Of course there is an entrance fee but once inside it truly is a sight to see. The price of the Coliseum also includes a ticket to the entrance to the old city which is where you’ll see Caesar’s court and the rest of the rooms.
As you stand inside the Coliseum you can see all the catacombs on the main floor where over time it has deteriorated so that you can see the series of tunnels below. Imagine what happened there below while up on top the gladiators fought for their lives.
After you leave the Coliseum it’s only about 100 yards until you’re in the old city or at least was left of it. Between the Coliseum and the old city, you’ll truly enjoy your vacation. Try to bring some water and light snacks with you or you’ll find that purchasing them at some of the kiosks outside to be rather steep.
All in all the Coliseum and the old city are definite must-sees. Starpoint Resort Group likes to offer these handy tips so their members can get the most out of their precious vacations. Visit Starpoint Resort Group today and see how affordable vacation ownership can truly be.

Traveling to Las Vegas can be fun, but overwhelming. With so many places to visit and the strip looking like a hard place to navigate, it can feel discouraging to be able to be able to do everything that’s on the agenda. However, with the help of a smart phone, the experience of being in Las Vegas can be much smoother shares Starpoint Resort Group. Here are just a few ways your smart phone will make the time in Las Vegas much easier.
- Use it for directions. Nowadays, the maps applications on smart phones give you the most direct routes to a desired location, so not only will it assist in finding locations that might seem hard to find, but it can help with finding the fastest way to wherever the destination may be.
- Restaurant review apps can be a great help for finding good restaurants, and finding them for cheap, if money is an issue. These apps are often location based, which means it will find the restaurants that are closest to your current location, which can be a big help if everyone in the group is famished. These apps include hundreds of reviews to give an in-depth account of the experience at that restaurant. They also give the price ranges of these restaurants, which can answer the question of “is it pricey?” before you even step into the store.
- There are apps, such as Open Table,that aid in reserving tables at popular restaurants. Because Las Vegas is a hub for great food, it can be hard to find a table at a good restaurant, so with the help of apps like these, a table at a fine restaurant will be only a few clicks away.

Starpoint Resort Group shares tips on what to take with you on your next vacation to Sin City.
Las Vegas can be one of the most exciting getaways during any time of the year shares Starpoint Resort Group. With so much to do and a night life that goes until the sun rises, it’s almost impossible to run out of things to do while at this city of excitement. However, there are a few things that you should remember to bring, as they’ll make the stay in Vegas more comfortable.
- Comfortable shoes are a must. You might not expect to be walking all that much, but the traffic on the strip is always so busy, and with so much to see during the day, walking will be the most efficient.
- Bring one or two nicer outfits. Vegas is filled with world-renowned restaurants with fancier dress codes, so feeling like you can’t go because of the attire you have could be a big downer. If over-dressing is a concern, just make sure to bring a dressy casual outfit, and maybe one semi-formal, depending on the restaurants that are in mind.
- Bring a decent sized travel bag. With many shops to visit and souvenirs to buy, having a bag to carry them while walking the strip can be a big help. Depending on the season, having the bag to carry water bottles can also be helpful, as it gets up to the 90’s during the summer. Having the convenience of a bag to carry these things will help you feel more comfortable while enjoying the extravagant Vegas vacation.
