Cultural Heritage Week

by jd1492

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I'm seeking more information on the Cultural Heritage Week specific to Rome. This information I've found states "all state and city run museums and archaeological sites are free of charge." I'm looking for a list of what museums/sites this will include, such as the Colosseum, Market and Forum of Trajan, Capitoline Museums, Borghese, etc... Also, how is admission handled at the free sites. Is it just first come, first served with a long line to stand in, or are there time allotments? Thanks in advance.

Re: Cultural Heritage Week

by ATLC

The Italian Ministry of Culture runs a website describing it in Italian:
http://www.beniculturali.it/sala/dettaglio-comunicato.asp?nd=ss,cs&Id=2620

The closest I could get to is this search option on above website:
http://www.beniculturali.it/eventi/ricerca.asp?nd=ec,ri&grandeevento=39. Put in Lazio/Roma and in the box Grande Eventi, select X Settimana della cultura 2008.
Then hit the 'Ricerca' button and you get a list.

If there will be any translation, then it will be on www.romaturismo.it
For the moment this website also refers to www.beniculturali.it and mentions:

"Settimana della Cultura (Culture Week)"

This popular annual cultural event is once again upon us.
It sees the country's state- and city-owned museums, archaeological sites, monuments and cultural spaces open up to the public for free allowing visitors to explore the nation's artistic heritage and the many exhibitions being hosted by various museums.
The Settimana della Cultura also hosts an array of events, including guided tours, concerts, performances, conferences and more.
To find out more about the complete and updated programme of events please consult the official website. (this being the benicultural site again).

The event is held from March 25 - 31, 2008. You might visit the following site, and e-mail them information on what sites are included, and how lines are handled, etc.. This site does translate to English: www.pierreci.it/do/home. The exact link: www.pierreci.it/do/show/article/01319. Gary

Using google, you can type "beniculturali.it", in the search block. When the link comes up as a search result, simply click "translate this page". The event is listed, but also has the standard "all state and city run museums, etc,etc" Gary

Re: Cultural Heritage Week

by lostsooner55

The English link: www.romaturismo.itv2/eng/main.asp. You still get the same generic statement, and you are referred to the beniculturali site. Gary

Travel Tips for Rome

Telephone Installation

by zheyy

I really like these modern-looking, lovely telephone box, especailly in this ancient Rome city. They give so light and bright color on a thick background filled with historic stories. I do appreciate Roman's creation - both before and now.

Catacombs - Catacombe Di San Sebastiano

by gasca

Named after St Sebastian was martyred and buried here, you can only visit the 2nd level and you must wait for a group of people to start the visit. You cannot wander around the hundreds of tunnels alone with a candle as I expected, but the place itself is quite impressive.

There are 3 levels and the first was almost destroyed because over the centuries this catacomb was the one of the only 3 open to pilgrims, and these are the first catacombs to be so called, coming the word from kata (near) and kymbas (cavity), as they were located near a cave

After the visit to the catacombs you are guided to the church that was built on top
Entrance is 5 euros.

CHEAP TRANSFER FROM DA VINCI AIRPORT

by JSBLONDON

CHECK WITH YOUR HOTEL IF THEY OFFER TRANSFER FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE HOTEL. THERE IS A SERVICE FROM FROM THE HOTEL RESERVATION DESK ON THE AIRPORT CONCOURSE THAT WILL ONLY COST 6 EURO PER PERSON AIRPORT TO HOTEL BUT YOUR HOTEL WILL HAVE TO MAKE YOUR BOOKING. THE HOTELS HEAVILY SUBSIDISE THE COST OF THE JOURNEY SO DON'T USE IT FOR YOUR RETURN TO THE AIRPORT A TAXI CAB WILL BE CHEAPER.

A great little Trattoria

by jchtravel about Hosteria Pizzeria de Vito E Dina

After our visit to St. Peter's we walked the pretty streets of the Borgo and around the Piazza del Risorgimento, looking for restaurants for dinner that evening, checking out menus and sometimes talking to owners and servers. Though there were also plenty of hawkers begging us into their place, we were impressed with quite a few places we saw. We liked Vito's simple ambience from the sidewalk, and although they were closed after lunch.... a good sign, we learned.....they were kind enough to show us a menu. Vito's was a short 4-5 block walk from our B & B, so we strolled on over around 7:30 or so.

We started with orders of the fried suppli; potato balls, fried olives, etc, and started on a litre of pretty good vino bianco. Plates of pasta with porcini and chicken with peppers followed. The chicken was as close to my Nonna's cooking as I have tasted in a long time, bless her soul.

Vito strolled the room, and Dina also came out to talk to tables of regulars. Dinner was served casually but with a real personal touch. A lovely evening with very reasonable prices.

Spanish Steps

by Mari6625

The Spanish Steps were great. There are all the designer stores that are fun to look and gawk at. At the top of the Spanish Steps there are artists selling their paintings and sketching drawings of people. We got a sketch done of ourselves that was spectacular.
