Travel from Rome to Cortona

by Cveilleux

We most likely will be arriving in Rome August 12 and leaving the 14 or 15 to a villa near Cortona. Is there a train that goes through Cortona, or would it make sense to rent a car? We will be in the villa for 2 weeks with family and certainly will be sight seeing in the area.

The train stops in the valley at a small industrial suburb of Cortona called Camucia. Only local trains stop there and there can be interminable waits between trains, so it would make very good sense to have a car. Cortona itself is far above Camucia on a striking hilltop setting, with bus connections to the station at Camucia.

The drive up to Cortona is not difficult, it being on the A1 autostrada most of the way. Since I am having doubts that there are car rental places in Cortona or Camucia (I looked at Avis and Europcar, and neither had offices there), you might as well rent the car as you're ready to leave Rome.

You can rent cars all over Rome, but Rome has ZTLs (limited traffic zones) that are illegal for you to drive in, so there is a certain advantage to heading back out to the airport to pick up the car, then taking the ringroad around Rome to go north on the A1 bypass and eventually the A1 up to the Chiusi area where you will get off to head over to the SS71 which runs up to Camucia.

Once you are onsite in Cortona, yes, you will very much appreciate having the car...note: before renting a car, you need to research the ZTL issue as many Italian cities have them now, and in some places it appears that their main purpose is to catch non-residents (other Italians as well as tourists) and fine the heck out of them to raise lots of money...

Re ZTLs: In touring the smaller scenic towns of the region you will almost invariable find an obvious parking area just outside the town. I've always found it best to just park there and walk in, and never drive into the center. Aside from ZTLs, you can find yourself embarrassingly stuck in networks of tiny alleys where everybody is staring at you and waiting for you to discover that the street ends in a flight of stairs or a dead end with no place to turn around.
In larger towns, just follow the big blue P, and bite the bullet of paid parking.

Yes, it makes sense to rent a car. What makes great sightseeing in the area near Cortona are the views with the hilly landscapes and the lovely ancient villages. A car will allow you to take as many stops as you want and to optimize your itinieraries. I suggest the Lake Trasimeno area and surroundings. Absolute must are: Castiglion del Lago, Isola Maggiore (boats from Tuoro), Isola Polvese (boats from San Feliciano), Panicale, Città della Pieve (Perugino frescos), Chiusi (Etruscan museum).
Just be aware that the week of August 15th is the very top of high touristic season.

i agree witb renting a car. it is a nice drive on good highways. always a good idea to have or rent a GPS. they work really well. Also will give you chance to be able to get out and visit some other places with time at a villa. lots to see so be adventorous!

Travel Tips for Rome

Rome: A City of Contrasts

by deecat

Rome is, indeed, a city of contrasts.

The new with the old, the antique with the modern, the ancient with the contemporary.

Romans use their cell phones more than Americans! But, it certainly is fun to see locals standing beside an ancient monument, cell phone in hand or up to the ear.

Also, the roar of scooters resounds in the streets along with the clip clop of the horse-drawn carriages.

Even though the buildings seem ancient on the outside, once you enter, you are amazed at how modern the interiors are.

This is especially true in Roman villas and apartments. Their kitchens and bathrooms are marvels! In fashion, Romans are on the cutting edge; yet, classic suit jackets, vests, dresses, and traditional shoes are also evident, especially with the older generation.

Regardless, the Romans I saw were so well dressed and seldom in casual attire such as Americans usually are!

I appreciate this attention to attire; it indicates self worth and dignity in my estimation. Perhaps that is one of the many reasons why I love Rome so much!

Don't order drinks or food at...

by karen_mo

Don't order drinks or food at the bar and then sit at the tables. Fairly common in Europe this but different to the pub culture in UK.
Also, in snack bars, pay for your food first and then go and order it. This is dodgy if you can't speak Italian as you have to wave wildly at the sandwiches and hope you get one on your bill. Somehow I ended up with a capuccino instead, must be my accent!

Fresh fruits, frutta fresca

by Karahan about Food or beverage

In the summer time you alway get thirsty. There are plenty of fountains everywhere around the city but what about some vitamins? Yeah, there are many fresh fruit shops on streets too. More than just fruits, They have coolers and some of them sell cool waters, fruit juices and coconuts.

Metro line B

by thirstytraveller

Metro line B is the oldest line of Rome's rapid transit. Old graffiti-covered trains are running on this line. They get hot in the summer - open windows help a bit, but of course make the ride noisier. The line takes you to Colosseo and Roma Tiburtina railway station, for example, intersecting line A under stazione Termini. Stations are announced acoustically (also in English) on some trains.
A new branch of the line, B1, is under construction.

Red Red Wine (and also White White Wine)

by karenincalifornia about Il Simposio

Rome has wonderful enotecas (wine bars) throughout the city. Their hours seem to be hit and miss - I couldn't quite figure them out. They'd be open mid day but not late afternoon, then sometimes they would be open in the evening.

We took an evening stroll and walked by this enoteca, so we stopped for a glass of Italian vino. The enoteca was elegant and had a nice selection of Italian wines.

Age limits don't apply here like they do in the US. Wherever we went, my 6 foot 1 15-year old son was asked if he wanted wine. He declined (good boy, although I would have let him if he wanted a glass.) A small intimate restaurant, Il Simposio, is located at the back of the Enoteca. We didn't eat there, but the atmosphere was very nice. The reviews of the restaurant are very good. Next door is Constantini, a very well stocked wine shop (closed in the evening).
