Re: around rome
There are, of course, 1,001 places to go see around Rome. Some of the ones I have driven to are Tivoli (Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa), Frascati, Castel Gandolfo, Tarqinina, etc.), and other people will also have many recommendations such as Ostia Antica (you can reach Ostia Antica easily enough by train from Rome, but there are actually a lot of other archaeological sites in the area near Fiumicino Airport/Ostia Antica that most people never get to because you need a car).
For planning your drive, use www.viamichelin.com, which will not only lay out the route but will estimate tolls and petrol costs. Rome to Florence will be about 3 hours, depending on where you start and finish. Note that on the way you will pass near a lot of other interesting places like Orvieto, Spoleto, Chiusi, etc.
Re: around rome
The main station at Rome is a good place to hire. You can check out about 6 different companies all in the same room.
If you're heading to Firenze, it depends on which route you take. There are several scenic options that are better in my opinion or straight up the autostrada which only takes a few hours.
Travel Tips for Rome
My best football related moment in Rome
My first Rome-derby was really something special. I had been at the Olimpico-stadium before, but never at a game as big as this. The whole stadium were packed when Roma and Lazio entered the pitch, and the atmosphere was so loud I almost had to hold for my ears… Two curves, each with around 20 000 singing people, that is kind of a choir I can promise…
I’m not sure who actually won the game, although I think that Roma did win. But the atmosphere is still living inside me, and everytime I’m going back for another derby, I know that it will be same again, and again, and again.
Take along a small backpack with water. remember to take small locks for the zippers to avoid having it opened. Many people carry their backpacks on the front to avoid theft from behind comfy shoes or sandals in the summer. Take a small umbrella in the backpack.
a disposable poncho is always a good idea as well. Have extra euro coins for toilets, as most will cost a donation of about 50 cents euro
Make sure you bring all necessary medications because you may not be able to find refills.
Also, remember that italian brands are different. American brand items will cost more in Italy. Extra film will be handy, and save you some money, as will any power converters for 110V items you need to recharge. Most digital cameras, however, are dual voltage. An italian two plug adapter or two will come in handy nothing special comes to mind money belt. If you have a fanny pack, make sure you have safety pins for the zipper to attach it to the material. This will help prevent theft. Gypsies WILL go for inside your front pockets as well. Trust me, they tried on me, but I managed to beat them off.
Food & drink beside the Trevi
The only thing special here is it's locale, opposite the 'stormy sea' unruly excited horse of the Trevi fountain (in the direction for Piazza Navona). In the afternoon, I sometimes buy a large 660ml Peroni beer from their fridge (about 2 Euros, there are botle openers at the till) and sit and drink it looking at the Trevi......
Just as good for soft drinks (chilled cans cola fanta sprite 1 Euro, 1 Litre bottles Eu1.90, chilled water), panini and snacks.
Be responsible with any litter !!
Also like to take home specilaity dried foods, just the packet soups and pastas (and bolognese mix) that I can't find back home - and dried goods don't impact on your luggage allowance ! Eu1 - Eu2 for take away chilled soft drinks or beer, panini from about Eu4
The best eggplant parmaggiana
A tiny, unimposing hole in the wall in a nondescript alley, it is worth the time to find! My fiance and I found it the night before our marriage at the Trevi fountain by the fabulous smell of roasted meats and garlic. If you sit outside (on one of two very small tables) be ready to lean away from the occasional small car or scooter, (big ones can't get by).
My peasant chicken dish was an Umbrian delight and served with garlic potatos that were perfect. A fire roasted, garlic infused artichoke was incredible. The eggplant parmagiana was the best we had ever tasted. (my wife is a GREAT Italian cook)
The cheeses were perfect, the blending of the various spices was right on, and the texture made you want to order a third portion.
For a sip of wine after a visit to Colosseo
This place has now been around for a while, and I decided to visit it one evening after some personal matters brought me to the area near Colosseo.
It's easy to find, right at the beginning of Via Ostilia (you'll find it in front of you when coming from Colosseo. Inside wall decorations are absent, and the owner and manager decided to use wine bottles instead. The result is quite alluring, as you will be literally surrounded by wine bottles of all sorts. The 5-6 tables are laid out very near one another as there is very little space - it feels almost like visiting someone at home.
Concerning their assortment, I did not have time to go through the almost endless list. Being from Tuscany, I looked for wines from my region, and found a pretty good selection. I ended up taking a white from Lazio, though, which was a recommended by the owner - a nice surprise.
If you are hungry you can pick from the list of snacks, including cheese, salami and various other gourmet stuff. Of course, you shouldn't expect any high-class hot dishes.
Prices are pretty much below average considering where you are - another reason to go back soon. My favourite? wine, wine and again wine!
