Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa ...

by TheWanderingCamel

Definitely want to visit these when in Rome in June. Question is, whether to book a day tour (I'd rather not) or get there under our own steam.
Thanks - leyle

O by yourelves, definitely. It's easy enough.

Blue Cotral buses go to Tivoli regularly from the Ponte Mammolo metro station (line B). Takes around 50 minutes. The driver will drop you off at the right place to walk up to Villa Adriana (if you ask him/her). Takes about 15 minutes. Then you can get the bus onwards to Tivoli itself if you want (or do this the other way round, obviously).

has a downloadable timetable pdf You will want L1, L2, L6 or L7 Click the line number to open the pdf timetable for that line. L1 seems to go around every 20 minutes or so, so plenty of choice!

Will you be going to Ostia Antica? If you have not already been there, don't miss it out.......it's an excellent place, and equally easy to get to.

Make sure you have some coins for the ticket machines (they should be near the bus stop). It's probably easier to buy two singles in one go, rather than faff around in Tivoli trying to get tickets back. Don't forget to validate your ticket in the yellow machines as soon as you get on the bus (on each journey).

It's so freaking easy to go on your own. I did it last year by myself and I was fine. I took the train but there is a buss that will drop you close to Villa D'Adriana and Villa D'Este. Villa Gregoriana is a little walk away but still easily accessible. A tour may be a waste of money. The signage at Villa D'Adriana wasn't the best but you can feel the place better without people yammering away.

Had not thought to detail the train, but you can get to Tivoli from Tiburtina station. Takes around an hour.

Re: Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa ...

by melissa_j

I think the train takes 40 minutes or so. Not a huge time difference and it stops farther out of town and hte area you walk through isn't the nicest until you get across the river. I'd say bus. That's how I'm going this year

Re: Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa ...

by nicolaitan

This is one of the few times we have taken a tour bus and were actually pretty pleased. There are none of the obligatory stop'n'shop visits along the way because there isn't enough time and we saved more time of course by having the bus take us from Hadrian to D'Este. It of course cost a lot more but having a knowledgeable guide to explain what we were looking at was a big plus.

Re: Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa ...

by fairy_dust

Just take a bus from Rome, and explore on your own. That's what I did, and I loved it. Though it might be difficult to fit in all the villas and stuff in one day if it's only a day trip - I ended up spending most of my day at the Villa d'Este and didn't have time to go to Hadrian's Villa at all (though I would have loved to, and definitely want to see it if I go to Tivoli again).

Travel Tips for Rome

One of the neat things about...

by Barbara2

One of the neat things about Italian cities in general and Rome in particular is that you wander through these narrow canyon-like streets when suddenly they open up to show a treasure like: The Pantheon, the Piazza Navona, the Trevi fountain. This treasure is the Piazza Navona. It's full of artists, children, balloons, lots of people. Just wonderful.

churches: Basilica di S Pudenziana

by tompt

When in Rome you have to visit some churches. Rome is the center of the catholic church and there are many really beautifull churches around. Ofcourse one must visit St Pauls in the Vatican, and some others like Santa Maria Maggiore. But also have a look inside some of the smaller ones. They mostly turn out to be hidden gems.

This is the Basilica di Santa Pudenziana (390 AD) , at the Via Urbana 160, a dead end street. It is one of the first parish churches of Rome.

According to legend it is standing over the house of the Roman senator Pudens. It has a 6th century doorway with medieval frieze and, in the apse, 4th century mosaics.
Rome's early-Christian mosaics show the progression from the naturalism of Roman art to the symbolism of Christian art. In this church Christ is enthroned between the apostles (who are dressed as Roman senators) and his magisterial air reminds of Jupiter.
Connected to the church is the Oratorium Marianum, with 11th century frescoes depicting the legends of the martyrs.

Buses and Trains

by Davelyn

At the Airport, make sure that you get the right ticket for the bus or train before yopu get on. Especially the train. You could end up paying a fine if you don't. Once in Rome, you have a good selection of city buses in which you can travel throughout the city . Watch for pick pockets on #64 to the Vatican. Buses can take you just about anywhere you want to go so possibly get a day pass or a 7day, if youare going to be there for any length of time.

The best Gelato (Ice Cream) in Rome!!!

by JoelArias about Il Gelato Di San Crispino

Best ice cream in Rome. I tried the “cream al whisky” and was very impressed. I heard it was made with aged high end malt. I also enjoyed the Miel (Honey) and Nocciola (Hazelnut). If you are near the fountain of Trevi or Piazza de Espagna then please take a visit, you will not be disappointed. There also a few other locations around Rome, so please check there weboste for directions. I enojyed the:

1. Whisky
2. Honey
3. Nocciola

colosseum

by dazsin

Nothing - NOTHING can prepare you for the grand sight that is the colosseum of Rome. It is one of the most famous monuments in the world - and does not dissapoint. As soon as it comes into view you will be amazed - be prepared to get the camera out!
There was a HUGE queue to enter the colosseum, so its best arriving 20 minutes before it opens. And be prepared to be hassled by guys selling postcards/keyrings etc (though just friendly hassle - nothing bad)
As for entering the colosseum, well, breathtaking - the photo's just don't do it justice.
