Thanks
Bill

Re: Apartment in Rome found on Craig's List

by mccalpin

I have not stayed there, but it is in a great location - it is a brief walk from here to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de' Fiori, Castel Sant'Angelo, the Mausoleum of Augustus, and only a little farther to Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna, St. Peter's, Piazza Venezia, and the ancient center of Rome (the forum, etc.). This area is also pretty lively in the evening with a lot of restaurants, so walking around in the evening after dinner will be a pleasure, not a worry.

While this location is not all that close to the Metro (which doesn't cover the whole city anyway), bus service is quite frequent in the city center anyway, in case you want to go farther out.

If you stay there, let us know how it works out!

Area is good. Narrow streets with small "antique" shops. I enjoyed very much a meal at a Sicilian run restaurant very close by recently. Take a look at:

But frankly there are plenty of choice. You can walk all over this area and see a lot. And I don't mean just restaurants. I found the Ari Pacis very interesting.
With Craigslist as it is free and unvetted more or less, you need to be cautious before parting with cash. I answered an ad for an apartment in New York once and got this incredibly well worded reply showing over the top pictures and offering a rental at below the going rate. I played along with the advertiser for a couple of emails and then reported it as a scam when I expressed interest and was asked for a Deposit to be sent by Western Union ! But certainly not all are scams by any means - just be aware.

Travel Tips for Rome

As an Architect I was drawn to...

by Ricardo_J_M

As an Architect I was drawn to this wonderful city through the many hours spent studying it. I was also drawn to it because we are catholic.
As it turns out we hit all the tourist places and vow to return to embrace the everyday Rome. Being in the magnificient Vaticano. It is a true work as well as spiritual sensation.

Trying (and failing) to outsmart the system

by gilabrand

On my recent trip to Rome, my cousin, who was traveling with me, decided she wasn't going to check any luggage. She brought a small piece on wheels and a very large open tote bag stuffed to the gills with everything else. According to the rules, she theorized, you can take a carry-on and a purse. She argued that the tote was her purse.

At the airport, it turned out the tote bag weighed more than the luggage and they would not let her take either of them aboard. As the tote was open at the top, with no zipper, she couldn't check it through, and had to put stuff in MY suitcase.

On the way back, loaded with souvenirs, she had even more trouble, and was busy juggling her things around until the very last second, cursing and sweating - and then being singled out for special security screening on top of it. So whatever you consider taking on board, make sure there is some way to close it in case you are forced to put it through as checked baggage. Also note that many of the small wheeled cases now sold as carry-ons are too bulky to be stored under the seat. If there is no room in the overhead compartment, you may be stuck with a piece of luggage jutting out into your precious leg room.

So my advice is to think carefully when you pack. You may think you are beating the system, but you may end up beaten by it.

Porta Portese market

by janchan about Porta Portese

The biggest and most famous street market in Rome is Porta Portese where you will find whatever you are looking for !! It's an amazing mess of benches and people, so move carefully around and don't bring with you valuables nor purses. For the rest enjoy the folklore of the vendors... Everything... such as clothes, antiques, books, car pieces, animals... etc......... :) Usually prices are lower than average, but remember always to trade !! Even because you will look like a tourist (tourist = higher price).

Moving in Rome if you're disabled

by baronedivandastad

I thought I'd share a few tips for people that have difficulties in moving, for instance if they are disabled..

Most (but not all) buses are of the new, low-floor, disabled-friendly type, so they shouldn't be a problem. Also, on all buses there will be one or two seats that are reserved for disabled people (and usually the other passengers won't hesitate to help and give up their seats).

The metro is another thing: if you can manage escalators then it's fine, otherwise not all stations have lifts. The stations with easy access for disabled people are marked on underground maps.

Trams can be new or old. The new ones have good access, the old ones I honestly don't remember (they only run on line 3, and I seldom take it).

With trains you will usually have a problem as most stations are built so that you have to climb three steep steps to get on. However, in larger stations you can get the station personnel to help you (e.g. by lifting your wheelchair).

For airports, there is total assistance, so you should be ok wherever you go.

Pizza, cheese and wine

by baronedivandastad about Da Pecorino

This place extends on three floors in the heart of the Testaccio area in Southern Rome.

It opened recently with a very decent offer of typical roman food, including pasta, pizza, cheese, meat and a small but very well-thought wine list. Try also their red beer, Moretti La Rossa, one of Italy's best brews. Beware: it's 7.8%, so don't overdo it, especially in the heat.

The service is friendly and informal, but can get a bit slow during rush hour, which is pretty much every evening especially in the summer.

For an average dinner you should expect to get out with around 20-25 euros, which these days isn't bad at all. Pasta alla gricia and red wine!
