What type of stroller could you recommend in rome? We have Quinny Zapp with small three wheels,could you recommend in rome? we will be in rome in mid-november.
Many experienced VTers recommend stripes over strollers for the sake of ease and utlity. Stroller is difficult on stairs and baby can not see anything. Though I am yet to experience the same, however, I am already sold on stripes :)
What are stripes? There has been a recent and long exchange on the Rome forum about strollers. The general concensus seems to favour backpacks for babies/children. If you look in the Rome forum you will find the link.
@ hawkhead: I meant the same thing, one may call them backpack :)
Never heard of "stripes" but thank you!!
baby carrier is the correct expression, imo. I also never heard of child backpacks :)
When our oldest daughter was a toddler (she's 22 now), we tried the small foldable stroller - it was totally non-functional on cobblestoned streets. We then tried a large wheeled stroller, which worked quite nicely but was totally impractical for travelling (to darn bulky).
We discovered backpacks just as the oldest was getting to big to need it. but for our second daughter, that was the only method we ever used when travelling.
The long thread (33 replies, many of them actually germane to the topic ;-) ) that hawk refers to can be found at
Thank you, Bill!! Child carriers, backpacks, what have you, are at least more pertinently descriptive than 'stripes'!!
Travel Tips for Rome
I cannot narrow it to one specific item. I stayed at the "Beehive" a hostel run by Americans that is very close to the "Termeni"(aka-train station) close, convenient,safe, reasonably priced BEST bloody hostel I've ever stayed in(and I've stayed in quite a few!)!! Not once but twice and the second time was with a friend & my daughter in an apartment. I could not have been more pleased. I purchased foods at a local "mercado"(market) and cooked... I loved every moment. Bellisima!!! The availability of really fresh ingredients to cook with... Hell ...even to succumb to eating in an actual restaurant when budget permitted. The wine, the food, the history, the architecture, was entirely amazing. The whole of Italy was spectacular!!! For me to eat in an actual restaurant when budget permitted, the experience was entirely amazing. The whole of Italy was spectacular!!!
Do the statues walk, yes but not in Rome only
Some of this guys, who act living statues, did extraordinary job before appearing in front of the audiance. Their mask is just perfect in each and every detail. Most of them stand still for hours, which is not an easy way to earn some extra money. I was in particularly fascinated by the skill of the statue, dunno if boy or girl, who act swordsman. He/she was moving and changing positions, from time to time, doing it in a very gracious way.
Caravaggio in Rome
In 1606, tortured genius Michelangelo Merisi—a.k.a. Caravaggio—fled Rome after killing a man over a (kind of) tennis match. Behind him he left some of the Eternal City's most striking artwork.
In the church of S.Agostino the painting of 'Madonna dei Pellegrini', in the church of S.Luigi dei Francesi 'La Vocazione di San Matteo', 'Il martirio di San Matteo', 'San Matteo e l'Angelo', in the church of Santa Maria del Popolo 'Conversione di San Paolo' and 'Crocifissione di San Pietro', in the Galleria Borghese 'Madonna dei Palafrenieri', 'San Girolamo', 'Bacchino malato', 'San Giovannino', 'David', 'Giovane con il canestro di frutta'. Works also in the Doria Pamphilj Gallery, in the Capitolini Museums, in the Pinacoteca Vaticana, in the Palazzo Corsini Gallery and in the Palazzo Barberini Gallery.

Getting There and Around
By Air : There is a non-stop train which runs on the hour from the Leonardo da Vinci Airport to Roma Termini Station. The service runs between the hours of 7.30am and 10.00pm
If you happen to arrive at the airport at night and the train is no longer running Cotral Buses run from the airport into Roma. The bus stop is located near to the International Terminal arrival area. They will take you from the airport to Roma Tiburtina.
Taxis : You should use only the yellow and white licensed taxis as these have metres. These drivers will give you a fair deal.
Rental motor scooters : are a popular way to be motorised and avoid the worst of the persistent parking shortage problems. The Metro provides a good service with public transportation and there is an extensive bus system.
der Pallaro - MY FAVORITE DAILY EATERY
Just visited Paola again with Jo (Jo 104) and had another great dinner. This is the most unique restaurant I have found in all of Rome! Not only is the food just great - but these people have fun serving you. Be seated and before you can even arrange your belongings, the antipasto of the day arrives along with the day's wine - a steady stream of courses follow. All the while, they might be poking fun at customers - sitting down at your table - telling people they have no choices but they'll eat when they have time to serve them. First-time customers here may look shocked - the regular Roman clientele will be laughing. You will receive the specialites of the day - each one typical Roman cusine - home cooked flavor - and all delicious.
You'll find the inscription: 'Qua se magna quello che passa casa' in Roman slang 'Here you eat what we give you" - always home made and of the best quality. You will feel as in the kitchen of a family. A five course meal of typically Roman food, including wine, coffee.
Ask Paola to go down to the wine cellar and have a quick look to the ancient Roman ruins of a theatre that are under your feet !!
We paid 25 Euro each.
Now open every day - tutti giorno! Whatever they are serving that day! You will immediately receive a pitcher of wine (your choice red or white) appetizers will arrive shortly, then pasta, followed by your main course of meat & vegetables, salad, desert, coffee and limoncello!! This is the typical service.
