There's a wonderful stationary/art store (Vertecchi) near the Spanish Steps on Via della Croce, very near to it's intersection with Via del Corso. They will have a special Christmas store open by November....go all the way through to the back of the store, out the door, across the alley into a charming Christmas Shop. I have a tip about it on my Rome Shopping page.

Travel Tips for Rome

Sistine Chapel

by nicolettart

I would definitely recommend seeing the Sistine Chapel, even you are not into art. It is breathtaking and you cannot imagine that one man did this. This picture shows the ceiling above the staircase just outside the chapel. Pictures are not permitted inside and when you enter you hear the guards loudly enforcing this rule. Michelangelo painted over 300 figures on the ceiling, and there are also micro-mosaics which look like curtains all around the walls, and paintings by Botticelli as well.

What to wear to be "in " in Italy

by ptitetoile

That is the actual look that you must have in Italy : Big sunglasses that makes you look like a fly ;-) It is for girls and boys...but there are much bigger than on the picture! On the Spanish stairs, you will find a lot of people selling such sunglasses...but of courses copies of the most famous brands : Channel, Dior,...

Night time Photography

by unravelau about From the roof of Castel S Angelo

I picked up a couple of postcards of the sites of Rome by night. I wasn't lucky enough to stay overnight in Rome (mostly day trips in from an hour outside). So I would love to do this photo at night time. No, just wear loose fitting comfortable clothing.

The best gelato in Rome

by jungles about Gelateria Della Palma

After sampling many, many cones of gelato in Rome, this place is surely my favourite. It's all homemade of course, as it should be, and they have so many flavours to choose from it's almost overwhelming. They also sell mousse and yoghurt, along with lots of different types of candy.

Actually there's a whole restaurant in the back, but I've only ever come here for the desserts. My favourite is a cone with one scoop of tartufo and another of croccantino di pistachio, with whipped cream (panna) on top (the panna is free).

Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore

by TheWanderingCamel

Some of the photos here were taken from our hotel window - a view of Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore I never tired of. Early morning was my favourite time, the piazza slowly coming to life as early morning prayers called people to the church, workers hurried to their daily routine and the first tourists of the day drifted across the cobblestones.

Early morning was the best time to visit the great basilica too, its vast space empty of all but a few visitors. Here on the crown of the Esquiline Hill, the biggest and most populous area of Imperial Rome, the huge church we see today has a history that dates back to the middle of the fourth century. The most important of all the churches in Rome dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the first church here was built by Pope Liberius after a vision of the Virgin appeared to him. A century later that church was replaced with an altogether grander basilica that has been enlarged and become increasingly more magnificent in the succeeding centuries. Despite all that, the church retains the essential form of an Imperial basilica, an effect enhanced by the 36 marble columns supporting the nave that pre-date the church itself.

Amongst its many treasures, great expanses of glorious mosaics really are the crown jewels. The suggestion of bringing binoculars in one guide book isn't so silly - the finest - original 5th century work over the triumphal arch and along the nave - are very high up and very detailed. The depiction of the Coronation of the Virgin in the apse is much later 12th century work. In photo 3 you can see some of the 13th century mosaics that adorned the basilica's facade until the loggia was added in the 18th century.

The column in the piazza was erected in 1614 to give thanks for survival from the plague - the first of many such columns to be erected across Europe but the only one that once graced Constantine's basilica in the Roman Forum.

The Pope comes to the Basilica each year to celebrate the Assumption of the Virgin, a day of great pomp and colour. Imagine the view you would have of that day from our hotel room
