    simple but cheap

    by

    We needed a cheap room and this is really difficult to find in a city like Rome especially on New Years Eve :) So Alice In Wonderland seemed ideal because it’s almost in the city center (3 metro stops away) and the price was much better for a double room that period.

    When we found the place (we had to go up to the sixth floor where they have all the rooms) the colourful place seemed like a nice hostel with a big living room (great to meet and chat with other travellers) and a big kitchen. A young lady came and showed us our room but... where is the bathroom?! "There’s no bathroom, it’s shared!" But we have booked a room with private... 30’ later the owner called and suggested some other places or to stay there with half price!!! We didn’t really want to walk around looking for another hotel so we stayed (and saved a lot of money).

    The room was very clean, the shared bathroom was clean too but as elsewhere it was hit or miss when you were in need to go. There was always hot water but we felt strange when we needed something (like a spare toilet roll) and there was no one there to ask.

    There was a simple breakfast included and due to New Years Eve they gave us a huge cake and a pomegranate!! (you break it for good luck after New Years Eve)
    There was also free internet.

    The funny thing was that we didn’t see the owner none of the days we stayed there and the last day when we had to call him and ask if he wanted to take the money and he said “we trust you, just leave them in the room”!!! :)

    Directions: 3’ away from Metro station, 15-20’ from Coloseo, 5’ away from San Giovani cathedral

Visiting Museums

by ellen340

Is is necessary to make a reservation to visit the museums in Rome? I can't tell if it's only required for the Borghese or if its required for most of them. Any advise is very much appreciated. Also which day of the week would you recommend?

I don't think it makes any difference what day........except many are closed on Mondays, and weekends will always be busier.

No, you don't need reservations for all of them. But many people prefer to make a reservation for e.g. the Vatican Museum, simply to avoid waiting in line for too long.

says that whilst you do need a reservation for the Borghese (which you can make online through their site, or purchase in advance when you are actually there) you don't need one for the Barberini, Corsini or Spada.

If you google you will find several websites which offer online reservations (most will charge commission). Many VT-ers have recommended www.tickitaly.com but, as I've never bothered to reserve online, I cannot tell you anything more about them.

Generally, it is the select few museums that require "timed tickets", in order to stave off getting more people that even the Italian army could handle. This applies to the Borghese in Rome, the Uffizi in Florence, the wherever-the-Last-Supper is in Milan (sorry I forget the name of the institution), to name the most well-known.

Otherwise, most state institutions take whomever whenever they come - and the comment about Mondays and weekends is generally true.

As for the Vatican, it's a little different. Tickets are valid only on the date of purchase; however, it is possible to reserve a place in a guided tour for individuals or groups which depart at a certain date and time from the entrance. The guided tour for individuals is almost certainly for a group of individuals who are thrown together at that time, not you alone.

See http://mv.vatican.va/3_EN/pages/z-Info/MV_Info_Servizi_Visite.html

As J noted, people often take these tours because you get to bypass the long ticket line...and, to be fair, a lot of people are just overwhelmed by the Vatican Museums...they're called the Vatican MUSEUMS for a reason ;-).

Please read the entire page for more info...

I don't know about other museums, but here's a tip for the Vatican museum: during the week go at noon, there are no line-ups (Natalia, who rented us our apartment gave us that tip). So, what we did was to visit the St-Peter's Basilica in the morning (beware the dress code) and headed for the Vatican Museum for noon.

For the Colosseo, you can make a reservation. Just call them and they'll give you a resaervation number. On the other hand, if you rent the audio guide(which I recommend) then you bypass the line up altogether.

My 2 cents

Travel Tips for Rome

Ancient stuff....:)

by unigirl

I think the Roman Forum area is the place to go - the Coloseo, the ruins, the Palantine Hill and the Piazza Campodoglio are the things that MUST be seen to be believed... I miss the excitment of seeing a new and amazing thing everytime I turn the corner. Not a lot of cities in the world have that same effect. A wonderful mix of new, old and ancient makes Rome one awe-inspiring ride that keeps going and going and has been since 753 BC...and I don't think it will ever stop....

The real Rome????

by tango_jd

Travastere district South of the Vatican on the same side of the river.
Very quaint, slightly shabby/seedy but with a style and panache.
Not too bad on prices for meals or drinks and a bit less frantic than the Fountain/Steps areas of the main drag.
The bridge in the photo - on the Travastere side there was the most wonderful ice-cream shop!

Only available in Rome

by jmhenry1123 about Jonathan's Angels

This is definitely an eclectic bar maybe 200-300 m away from Piazza Navona.

The owner bears a strange resemblance to Kenny Rogers. They play a variety of music while I was there it was Enrique Iglesias and latin/salsa music.

The bathroom is interesting....Let me just put it at that. You will have to see for yourself This is kind of a last call place, people come from other nightclubs here.

Romana Cucina

by vrondy about Ristorante ARMANDO

Not far from Termini Station , but difficult to locate since just outside the walled city .
Trattoria type frequented by locals families for an evening of great food and atmosphere.
They serve variety of local food from pizza to fish at very reasonable price .

San Clemente Basilica

by billnjenn2002

Rome has layers. That's noticeable in a lot of places, but the San Clemente Church has an archeological site that really shows off the (literal) depth of Rome's history.

Admission is 5 Euros, which seemed steep until I went down to the site. Worth every pfennig.
