Perla Roma jewelry store near the Spanish Steps

by jnpcarroll

Could anyone connect me with a jewelry store by the name of Perla Roma near the Via Condotti and the Spanish Steps? Thanks in advance

Re: Perla Roma jewelry store near the Spanish Steps

by mccalpin

The Italian Yellow Pages do not show any jewelry stores with a similar name in this area...however, there is this:
La Perla S.R.L.
00187 Roma (RM) - 78, VIA CONDOTTI
phone 06 69941934
This place is listed under "apparel - retail" in the Yellow Pages. Note that the Yellow Pages do not have a web site for this location.

Does this sound familiar?

Travel Tips for Rome

What do I wear to visit a church?

by Beausoleil

A common question on the Forum here is "What do I wear when visiting a church in Italy?"

It is often posted outside the church door but if you are getting dressed in your hotel room, that doesn't help much. I just happened to take a photo of the door in the cathedral in Arezzo and it applies to most churches in Italy. (The red underline is my own.)

Rule #1 is "Use proper dress" and underneath is says "Shoulders and legs must be covered."

Elbow-length sleeves are all right and knee-length skirts seem to be okay too. We've seen various lengths of shorts treated differently at different churches. Sometimes, the knee-length shorts are allowed and sometimes they are not. I'm not sure how you know until an usher asks you to leave so it might be better to skip the shorts if you know you will be visiting churches.

Ladies can carry a sarong or wide scarf and it can act as a shoulder wrap (covering those scandalous arms) or as a wrap skirt . . . depending on which you need. Slacks are okay for ladies and capris are another thing that are allowed in some churches and not in others. I'd opt for a skirt rather than capris in town . . . or just wear light slacks if it's hot.

Gentlemen might find it easier to wear slacks or khakis in the city. If it's very hot, wear lighter ones. It works for my husband.

It may seem a nuisance and you may not do it at home, but "when in Rome . . . "

BTW, I took the "rules" photo in Arezzo but you will see the same rules all over Italy and in larger churches there will be ushers to enforce the rules.

Vatican City. One of the...

by acemj

Vatican City. One of the highlights to any visit to Rome is sure to be a day in the Holy See, Vatican City. It is a sovereign state with its own police force and post office and of course, it is the hub of the Catholic Church. This is the view from the cupola of Michelangelos dome of St. Peter's Basilica.

How to find the stadium

by Calcio

Unfortunately the Stadio Olimpico isn¡¦t in the real center of Rome, and you¡¦ll need close to an hour to get there from the Termini trainstation. You can take the tram from the piazza next to the trainstation, but so far I¡¦ve never managed to find the right one, so I don¡¦t say anything¡K
Instead I always take the metro. In Rome there are two lines, so make sure to take the right one. From Termini it¡¦s Line A, against Battistini. You go off at the station Ottaviano (the same as for the Vatican) and then you just have a nice 40-50 minutes walk to the stadium¡K ƒº
More clever way should be to take the bus from the square. When you get out of the metro-station, take right over the streets, and you¡¦ll see a bus stop. If I don¡¦t remember totally wrong it¡¦s bus number 12 that will take you to the stadium. Just ask someone, or look for people with football-scarves.

After the game the stadium-area is a total traffic-chaos, and if you want to take the bus back to the metro-station you might have to wait for hours, and then anyway be stuck in an overcrowded bus¡K My advice is that you instead take a nice and quick walk. When you get down to the river Tevere from the stadium (4-5 minutes walk) you just take right and follow that big street (Note: Don¡¦t cross the river!) Then you just follow that street for 40-50 minutes maximum, and you¡¦ll be back at the metro station.
You can also cross the river and then take left, where you after a while while find a huge bus stop. From there you can take a bus directly back to the trainstation of Termini, but with the traffic it could take forever¡K Not to mention the problem you¡¦ll have to find the right bus among those 20-30 that will be standing there¡K

waiters waving for people to eat @ the location

by maritoni about Caffe Vaticano

Fast food style.. they heat the food in microwaves.. the food isn't as good for the price we paid (70euros) for lunch...
overpriced items... and waiters wave at passersby encouraging them to eat at their location... it is located right in front of the vatican museum entrance.

The Pantheon - a work of engineering genius

by aaaarrgh

The Pantheon was at the top of my 'must see' list. What an amazing building, still perfectly complete after 1875 years!

The Roman Emperor Hadrian was a great art collector and made sure The Pantheon was a thing of beauty. It is a great domed temple, 43m high and 43m wide. If you look up, the tiny looking hole at the top is actually 9m wide (no electric light in those days, the hole provided illumination).

This was all built well before the invention of reinforced concrete, tubular scaffolding, or cranes!

No photograph can really capture the size of the place...
