During the Summer of 2011 I lived and worked in the eternal city. I worked for a Pub Crawl and lived in the staff apartment with 8 others from: America, Bulgaria, South Africa and Australia. It was literally one of the best three months of my entire life. If you have ever seen the Jersey Shore…it’s pretty much like that. Nothing but a party (and you actually get paid to party) and your landlord is also your boss. It had its pros and cons for sure, but I had a great time. Here’s a video of what my life was like everyday for 96 days in the summer of 2011 :https://emilysjourneysabroad.wordpress.com/travel-videos/nightlife-in-rome-with-eddys-tours/
For anyone who is interested in similar work, you can try googling Pub Crawls in Europe and send them a quick email with your resume and the fact that you like to work…but you also love to party. If you have the personality to handle it and can guide drunk people around cobblestone streets, then you should do it. People skills is essential for obvious reasons and you should also be able to actually work. The money was good too.
