In Rome, I discovered a little take-out pizza shop aroundrepparttar corner fromrepparttar 148247 Pantheon. The restaurant made pizzas on huge rectangular sheet pans and put them in a deli case with a clear glass window. You could order by pointing torepparttar 148248 kind you wanted, motioning for how big you wanted your piece (they charge by weight), and asking for it to be heated. Then you happily take your piece of pizza over torepparttar 148249 square, sit onrepparttar 148250 steps and enjoy.

Being friendly with other guests inrepparttar 148251 hotel,repparttar 148252 concierge andrepparttar 148253 locals, is another great way to discover good food that won't breakrepparttar 148254 budget. Ask a local if they know any good restaurants that aren't too expensive. They should be able to come up with a few good options for you. Make sure you indicate that you want to sample some local cooking. I've even known friends that have gotten themselves invited over to dinner (not that this should be your objective).

Another good way to find inexpensive restaurants is to always be looking for a good place to eat. If you're out visiting a tourist site, stop by a few restaurants and read their menus (usually posted inrepparttar 148255 window). Even if you are not hungry, you may decide to come back later. I've had better luck with this technique when I'm in an area ofrepparttar 148256 city that is not your standard tourist destination.

Eating in a sit-down full service restaurant isrepparttar 148257 most expensive dining option, so if you are really on a budget, you may want to limitrepparttar 148258 number of full service meals you eat. Also, in some countries eating atrepparttar 148259 counter is less expensive that sitting at a table. By listening to recommendations and doing a little research, you can avoidrepparttar 148260 expensive restaurants that cater to tourists.

If you're on a budget, you can still eat great during your travels, you just need to be aware of all your food options. Ask around with locals for recommendations. Make sure you knowrepparttar 148261 price before you eat. Most important of all, try new things. Stretch your boundaries and try something that you would never eat at home. After all isn'trepparttar 148262 reason you travel is to discover something different.
