Ron in Rome

The Ron In Rome website was created in mid-2008. The purpose of the site? To assist travelers – especially first-time visitors – on their trips to Italy. It’s been designed as a HOW TO site and since 2008 the Ron In Rome website has had more than two million visitors from 185 countries!

  • The website now features more than 1,800 printed pages, 3000+ photographs, 180+ posts… and more than 1,400 comments by you, the readers.

  • I started this webpage when my wife and I lived in downtown Rome. We had three wonderful years in Rome. When we moved to Copenhagen, we returned back to Rome and Italy five times in the first twelve months – Homesick, no doubt! Not a day goes by that we don’t talk about moving back to Rome.

  • I will continue to post to the Ron In Rome website. I have thousands of photos, pages of notes, and many friends still living in Italy. So I don’t lack for material – just time.

  • I’ve also started Ron Phillips Travel, an Independent Travel Advisor for Brownell Travel, a Virtuoso Agency. Read about those changes here
