New year's day in Rome

by tientje

We are spending the Christmas holidays in Rome. Our plane leaves on January 1st at 9PM. Does anyone have an idea for spending our last day in the city? Apparently all the museums are closed that day.

Assuming the weather is reasonable, walk and walk.

Get a good map (the Rough gude one is cheap, excellent and indestructible).

Central historical Rome is very walkable,and much smaller than you might imagine. There is just so much to see. You could explore the Jewish quarter, see the ancient Roman theatre/fishmarket in that area then across the bridge to Trastevere, for example.

Enjoy the places which are always more difficult to fit in when the main sights are open.

Jan 1st all churches are open. Enjoy visiting very notable churches w/great art - San Pietro in Vincoli for Moses - Pizza Minerva for Michaelangelo's CHRIST - San Francesco di Rippa in Trastevere for St. Teresa - Basilicas Santa Maria Maggiore & San Giovanni (close enough together)and many more. If interested, I will send you a list.

Re: New year's day in Rome

by leics

You should not miss S.M Maggiore and S.Giovanni, even if you do not see them on Jan 1st.

You should also visit Basilica S Clemente near the Colosseum: superbly atmospheric, and entirely unmissable.

According to its website it is open from 12-6pm on state holidays.

Be aware also that every New Year's Day here, tens of thousands gather in St. Peter's Square, filling the streets with pageantry and music, to celebrate and receive the Pope's New Year's Day blessing. Massive traffic!

Re: New year's day in Rome

by tientje

Thanks for your reply. I already made a list of churches to visit, so I'll save that for our last day in Rome.

Re: New year's day in Rome

by icunme

The churches should be a good visit & no so crowded as many people will be over around the Vatican for the festivities there. Unless, of course, the Parade is of interest to you.

Re: New year's day in Rome

by Supertigger

Hi! I think options are two...indoor parties or...walking and walking. In Piazza del Popolo there are always many people celebrating and having fun, or maybe also the concert at Piazza del Quirinale.
I found something here

Hope you will enjoy the city i'm living in :-)

Thanks for the supertips! On New Year's Eve we will be going to the opera but I think it will be great to go to the Piazza del Popolo and Quirinale afterwards.

Travel Tips for Rome

Stand at the very top of the...

by cuckoo

Stand at the very top of the Spanish Steps in the early evening,with the sun setting, and amaze yourself with the view! My fondest memories of Rome are visiting the Christmas market in the Piazza Navona with my son and two young nephews, and just walking for hours around the city,enjoying the sights, sounds, smells and tastes.

Pack for the sunshine!

by Jenniflower

Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling. ~ Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing. Pack comfortable walking shoes and casual clothes.

~ Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun.

~ A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.

~ Sunglasses.

~ Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers. ~ sun screen (Factor 35), headache tablets (from being in the car during the sun all day, may bring on a headache), and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc. Your camera, with charger, and a EUROPEAN plug extension. Have a map and a bottle of water handy at all times. Maybe even bring a fan.
It is not just a place to sight-see, but a place to learn from too.

Herbs and spices from Piazza dei Fiori

by uglyscot about Food or beverage

In the Piazza dei Fiori are market stalls selling household goods, clothes, flowers and fruit and vegetables as well as cheese and other groceries.
I love the herb and spice stalls. The colours of the spices, and the smells appeal to the senses.The goods are in tubs and each has its label with its name and use. I often felt tempted to try the cures for rheumatism, asthma etc, but instead stock up on dry herbs that i cannot find in Cairo. In the market I usually stock up with oregano, basil and rosemary.
Then there are pasta spices, mixtures of herbs with some other dried bits [ whether tomato, chili or red pepper , I don't know ] but when added to my sauce gives a more authentic Italian taste.
One time I chose the hot version. It nearly burnt my was hot. I ended up giving it to my daughter's Ethiopian nanny. I have also taken the soup mixture. a small bag costs a couple of euros, depending on which spice or herbs you choose. I only ever take a small amount as I have been lucky to go frequently, and if kept too long [years] the herbs tend to lose their flavour

There are two airports near...

by DanielF

There are two airports near Rome: Fiumicino and Ciampino, but most of the flights arrive at Fiumicino, which is well connected by train and taxi to the city.
Rome is a walker's paradise, with so many beatiful sights at every step. The only annoying thing is the intensity of the traffic in some areas. For long distances, you must rely on the taxis, since the metro and buses are dirty and not very extensive.

Pizzeria and a lot more

by Paisleypaul about Ristorante Pizzeria Zeus

This is a Sicilian restaurant, almost underselling itself, intentionally or otherwise, by including Pizzeria in the nomenclature. Delicious food, great interior, live music. We passed at all times of day as it is adjacent to Hotel Miami - fresh deliviries of ongredients every day.

(ARCHIVED ORIGINAL TIP :This is on the North side of Via Nazionale and just around the corner from Piazza della Republicca. We dined here in 2004 before I was a VT member so info sketchier than other tips hereabouts. I remember it was probably justly slightly more expensive than average, and that on our way to the Opera we were pushed for time. We told them this, and they certainly responded by serving us quickly) 2006 - 2 Mineral water Eu3 ; 1/2 Litre House White Eu7 ; Fried Zucchini flowers Eu9 ; Seafood risotto Eu12; House recipe Lasagna Eu8, 2 Tiramisu Eu10, very gppd value at Eu57 which includes the 10% service charge

(ARCHIVED ORIGINAL TIP :Zuppa de Pesce - like many house varieties, it is served on a dinner plate rather than a soup plate, being a kind of clam mussel octopus fish casserole almost with toasted bread.)
