looking for some ideas on seeing certain things in Rome on a one day visit

by cherylinreno

Hi all,
My husband and I are on a cruise in may and arriving in Rome on a Monday. I am very interested in seeing any catacomb that I can. My husband wants to see the coloseum. We have already seen the Vatican. I also want to get to the Basilican of St Agnes Outside the Walls and the crypt of St. Agnes. We don't have much time and am looking for any ideas on a walk/taxi/bus or run! type day. Help!

Cheryl, Cheryl, my previous agenda for you wasn't enough??? ;-)

Hmmmn, all the catacombs I've been to are out on the Via Appia south of town. This doesn't fit too well with the agenda I gave you - you no longer really have time to bus it to all these places, you're going to start to have to take taxis for some of the segments.

However, there are at least 40 catacombs in the general area of Rome, scattered around town (well, mostly outside of town, since it was not legal to bury people in the city limits). In fact, there are catacombs at Sant'Agnese fuori le Mura. I have looked over the official website - http://www.santagnese.org/index.html (only in Italian) - but I don't see any information on hours, etc. Well, in the sitemap, there's a placeholder for where they're GOING to put the info, but, as they note at the top of the page, not all links are active yet.

Tell you what, let wait until J (leics) sees this posting...since she has spent a lot of time underground ( :-) ), she may have a good idea of a catacomb that would be closer to one of your churches or the Colosseum...

The Archeobus (hop on and off) will take you to all these places. When you are done at the Colosseum, the bus stop is just outside it.

Well, you can always pay for taxi rides...because I think that is the only way you can see what you intend to see in the time allowed.

I have not visited the catacombs at St Agnes but

http://www.sacred-destinations.com/italy/rome-st-agnes-outside-walls.htm

implies that tours of the catacombs are available (for 5 euro) when the church is open. However, this is Italy...... so please do not expect everything to be exactly as it says it is.

The other catacombs, on the Via appia, are wellworth visiting. The Archeobus is a useful way of getting from site to site, but I doubt you will find time to pack everything in (and remember that bos taxi and bus get caught in traffic).

I agree with what the others have said; however, I also strongly urge you to purchase your Colosseum tickets in advance and go left of the long ticket line to skip the very long wait of those buying tickets. With advance tickets you can go straight through to the security area and then into the Colosseum. It took us less than 15 minutes on a late morning when those waiting in line probably took more than an hour.

Travel Tips for Rome

Keep Your Eyes Open

by mrclay2000

Keep your eyes open when touring the city, or you'll miss an ancient statue, overlook the columns of a former monument, or entirely bypass the remnants of an ancient structure, such as an aqueduct which looks fused upon the modern building.

Calcata "the gooviest village in Italy'

by sunchasers

Imagine a quiet Italian hilltop village about an hour from Rome that's been taken over by hippies. This town may not be the most visited or well-known excursion out of Rome (such as Ostia Antica, Viterbo, Assisi) but maybe it should be. I found out about this place after havng read in article in NY Times. So when we went to Rome a few months later, I mentioned that I'd like to see the town to the guy we rented our flat from. He was so amazed we even knew about the place he actually drove us up there one night. During the week, it's an enchanting ghost town, where you'll see maybe a cat or the occasional local (likely barefooted in a sarong). On the weekends, the arts and craft shops come alive as Romans head to the hills to buy some funky Calcatan art. The views are really nice, as the town itself is perched on a cliff. All of the village houses have caves underneath of them so it makes for an interesting experience when visiting the local restaurant, butiques. The town square is also interesting....the Church Clock no longer functions...so it's as if time stands still here. Also, there are signs of modern art, placed amongst the oldness of the village (a Jimi Hendrix painting on a building, concrete modern chairs in the square). It's a really nice, relaxed deviation from the noise and vastness of Rome. The history of the place and how the hippies arrived is also very interesting.

Restaurant: www.grottadeigermogli.org

Transport Information:

Take Metro to Piazzale Flaminio. Outside the square is a train station (Ferrovia Roma Nord) for urban/extra-urban trains. Take train to Saxa Rubra (direction Prima Porta). Tickets can be purchased from the machines or the tabaccaio inside the station. After you get off at Saxa Rubra, you go to bus terminal (COTRAL Pullman), buy ticket in office and go to platform #2 (ask to be sure). Bus goes in direction Civita Castellana (ask to make sure it stops in Calcata).

Quirkiest Bar in Rome!

by sue_stone about Jonathan's Angels

Jonathan's Angels is one of the most bizarre bars I have ever been to.

It is owned by an ex-circus acrobat, Jonathan, who is also a bit of an artist......the bar is decorated in paintings of the man himself, impersonating famous people - eg. Jonathan as the Pope, Jonathan as Napoleon etc

Any wall space not covered with paintings of Jonathan is covered with other quirky paraphernalia. But the most bizarre of all is the toilet, which is worth a visit, even if you don't need to "go".

Staff are friendly and drinks are good, but not cheap - well worth a visit though!! No one takes any notice of you, there is too much else to see here!!

Intimate Vibrant Italian Restaurant

by Taffster about Gallo Matto

Gorgeous food in a small, intimate Italian restaurant.

The tables are so close that you're practically sharing starters with your neighbours but nonetheless it gives a lovely cosy atmosphere and is very romantic as you huddle closer to your loved one! We had bruschetta to start (what else!) and pizza and chicken spaghetti for mains. LOvely jubley!

Pantheon best thing it is free

by PeterKnudsen

Pantheon Commentary
The Pantheon is one of the great spiritual buildings of the world. It was built as a Roman temple and later consecrated as a Catholic Church. Its monumental porch originally faced a rectangular colonnaded temple courtyard and now enfronts the smaller Piazza della Rotonda. Through great bronze doors, one enters one great circular room. The interior volume is a cylinder above which rises the hemispherical dome. Opposite the door is a recessed semicircular apse, and on each side are three additional recesses, alternately rectangular and semicircular, separated from the space under the dome by paired monolithic columns. The only natural light enters through an unglazed oculus at the center of the dome and through the bronze doors to the portico. As the sun moves, striking patterns of light illuminate the walls and floors of porphyry, granite and yellow marbles.
