App Offers Tips For A Perfect Day In Rome
Wednesday, 31 August 2011
Holidaymakers can share their itinerary for a perfect day in Rome with a new app.
The Perfect Days app has been launched by British Airways and allows users to share their tips for making the most of the Italian capital.
Visitors, along with staff and cabin crew from the airline, will be able to leave details such as the best things to see and do and where to eat and drink on the Facebook app.
The Colosseum and Vatican museums are highly rated, along with Palatine Hill, with visitors advised to book in advance for such sights.
The new app allows users to create an itinerary of things to see and do in a day and can also add a theme such as culture, dining or shopping. Other users can then 'like' and comment on these itineraries, giving a further insight.
It should make it easier for people to plan their own itineraries before leaving their hotel or apartment in Rome and ensure they don't miss top sights such as the Trevi Fountain or the Pantheon.
Among the tips offered on the app are entry prices to sites, which are worth booking in advance and where to do this.
Advice is also given on the time to allow for certain landmarks.
For example, visitors are advised to spare a day to take in The Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel.
Richard Bowden, British Airways' digital marketing innovation manager, said: 'Perfect Days allows travellers to find new experiences and be inspired by others who are passionate about a destination and want to share their insider knowledge and travel tips.
'We look forward to receiving their feedback from this first version of the new app.'
Other destinations including London, Madrid and Berlin also feature on the new app, with more set to be added in the coming months.
