Getting to The Sunday Flea Market

by Billwalker

What is the best way to get from the Termini to Porta Portese via public transportation ?
Thanks
Bill

Re: Getting to The Sunday Flea Market

by mccalpin

Ah, "best"...that magic word...what is "best" for you? ;-)

The fastest way appears to be to the Metro Line B from Termini to the Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus) stop, then come up to ground level and switch to Line 3, which appears to be a tram or streetcar. Right after this vehicle crosses the river, the next stop should be Piazza di Porta Portese. I believe that the market stretches to the south just west of the river from here.

The simplest and perhaps more scenic way would be to walk over to the bus stops at Termini and look for this bus: "75 (POERIO/MARINO)". Take it 17 stops and get off at Piazza di Porta Portese, again the first stop after you cross the river.

The bus line sort of zigzags around, but on Sunday, you should pass by Santa Maria Maggiore, come up the backside of the Parco di Traiano and the Colosseo, pass between the Palatine and the Parco Ninfeo di Nerone (where the aqueduct crosses the road to feed water to the Palatine - OK, it doesn't work anymore), pass along the south end of the Circus Maximus, and finally pass through the Parco della Resistenza dell'Otto Settembre, of which I know nothing ;-)

So...your choice...

P.S. go to www.atac.roma.it, look for English (its English support varies) and use the Course Calculator to check this out...it's for all Metro lines, buses, trams, and metropolitan railways...

Fastest is to take Metro B line to Piramide, and get the 3 tram there. This is one stop south of Circo Massimo. You could also walk the 3/5 of a mile or so to Porto Portese from Piramide

Travel Tips for Rome

Roma Pass

by lisha74

For those curious about the Roma Pass (as I was), we did find it to be an excellent value for the money. Just be sure to make the Colossium one of your first two (and thus free) sights. The Roma pass allows you to bypass the line and walk right in. Otherwise the regular line to buy tickets is quite long.

Combining this with free entry to Castel Sant'Angelo and unlimited use of the metro (our hotel was only a block from the train station, so we used it quite frequently), we definitely got our money's worth.

Vino!

by msbrandysue

We all know Italians love their wine. So, make sure and have some! Wine is served at most meals. I wouldn't say a bottle of wine is served at breakfast but mimosas (champagne and orange juice) were common. I felt out of place, as this was my first international trip, therefore if you are feeling uneasy have a glass of wine! It made me feel more relaxed and helped emerse me into the Italian culture. Just a hint on your first night!

Marforio - second talking statue

by icunme

The history of the talking statues is in the first tip about Pasquino - the leader of the pack.
Marforio was the second. This colossal statue of a river-god at the foot of the Capitol Hill became soon a second Pasquino. It was named Marforio and it added zest to the lampooning of the popes as Pasquino and Marforio started talking to each other.
In 1679, with the excuse of preserving a fine antique statue, Marforio was incarcerated inside Palazzo Nuovo di Campidoglio.
Clemens XI (1700-21) was so interested in Urbino, that Pasquino and Marforio had this little conversation:
Marforio:- Dimmi: che fai Pasquino? - Pasquino, tell me, what are you doing?
Pasquino:- Eh, guardo Roma, chè non vada a Urbino. - I watch over Rome, to make sure it's not moved to Urbino.

Shortcut for walkers !

by Paisleypaul

It is appalling - the length of time it took me to figure this ! We all know you wear out a few pairs of boots, the amount of walking you do in Rome. However , there is a great shortcut through the tunnel under the Quirinale, but it is never on any maps as they always show the Quirinale itself.
It runs from very near the Trevi, just outside the Albert pub (see Nightlife Tip) in Via del Traforo to the short Via Milano, which leads to Via Nazionale. This is the main shopping street from Piazza Republicca (near Termini) to Piazza Venezia (Monumento Vittorio Emanuele II). A revelation when you first try it ! Not too many tourists in the know either as there is regularly just half a dozen - at very most - people walking it at any one time. Ther are small pavements(sidewalks) either side of the road.

For dessert only....

by belgianchocolate about Cremolati San Barbara!


One evening we were walking , not
going to any direction. We were searching
were the light and the noise came from.
Well the noise was a fantastic choir in the
sizzling hot church of San Barbara.
(the choir's name was 'officina Musicae -
and it was a sunday evening...;-))

But the doors were wide open , and some
chairs were waiting for us to rest our tired feet.
Those chairs belonged to 'San Barbara Cremolati'.
Frozen yoghurt , pancakes in a lot of flavours...
'cremolato' is a fruit flavored ice-water
made with real fruit. (I didn't liked the mint)

I watched facinated how he made the square
pancakes and chose the one with créme
de chesnut and Grand Marnier.
I even managed to choose even a richer one
for my mate...with chocolate mousse and
banana's. Pancake San Barbara.

Hmmmm , music and pancakes.
I'll never forget.
