Travelling from the UK to Rome? Whats the best travel agents or sites?

by Kaysta

Hello,

I'm wanting to travel to Rome to see the historic sites, so i want to be situated closed to the attractions. I have had a look at the sites and im a bit confused as where the hotels are which are the best ones to go to that will be in walking distance/taxi ride of the sites.

I'm wanting to go from the 31st of July to the 4th of August 08. Prices aren't so high would be a bonus!! Haha.

Any recommendations?

Thanks :)

Kay

My main reason for going to Rome is to see the Roman historic sites, so if there is a hotel close this thats not expensive, that would be great :)

Look at www.venere.com It is a reliable site listing hotels/b&bs etc, with honest reviews from hotel guests, and has a useful map to show you where hotels are located. If you are happy in a hostel, you could look at www.hostelworld.com or www.hostelbookers.com

Rome is very walkable and has an excellent and cheap public transport system (bus/tram/Metro). Don't even think of taxis; there really is no need for them at all. One of the pleasures of Rome is its compact size (in terms of the main sights), and those which are further away are easily accessible by public transport.

I suggest you look for somewhere in the Termini area; it's convenient for arrival & departure (the airport bus & train stop there), is within walking distance of the centre if you choose (or buses/trams/metro) and has budget hotels. I always stay in this area (single female): it is no more dangerous, in my opinion, than central London, despite what one sometimes reads on forums. Just use normal 'city' common sense.

If that doesn't appeal, you will find probably cheaper hotels in the suburbs but must then factor in time/expense for travelling into the city every day.

You will love Rome (though it will be hot when you visit, so think about hotel a/c). Try to visit Ostia Antica if you can; it's an easy trip from Rome on the commuter train (Metro to Pyramide, then train for 30 minutes or so) and entirely wonderful. A sort of mini-Pompeii. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/73696/23dd5/

Hi,
The period you from the 31st July to 4th of August is the worst, as in Rome is as warm as in hell :-) Historic sites are not far one from the other but walking in August will cost you a lot of energy and being in Rome in the period is way to expensive. I will advice you first of all to better go in May or June.
But if you have no choice then take a look here:
http://www.pensioni-roma.com/
http://www.youthstation.it/
http://www.couchsurfing.com/group.html?gid=644
The last one is special as you can actually be the guest of someone's living in Rome. But maybe if your a flexible traveler could be the right choice and a pleasant experience.
Let me know if I can help you more.

Greetings,
Laura

In July/August you MUST have air con in your hotel in Rome. This is really non-negotiable. You will be sorry if you don't. Termini is the best area by far for convenience and for selection of budget priced hotels. See my hotel tip on my Italy page. It will give you the name of a really fabulous little budget priced hotel in the heart of everything and with Air con as an optional extra.
You are very young so you will be well and truly able to handle the walking which, as everyone will tell you, is the best way to see the Eternal City. Arriverderci!

Travel Tips for Rome

Piazza Venezia

by sandysmith

This busy square (= traffic is chaotic here) is the hub of the main city arteries: Via del Corso, Via del Plebescito, Via Battisti, Via dei Fori Imperiali and Via del Tatro di Marcello.
On the four of its sides were Palazzo Venezia, Palazzetto Venezia, Palazzo Nepoti, Palazzo Torlonia and Palazzo d'Aste Bonaparte. The name of the square emphasized the political and architectoral importance of Palazzo Venezia.

Circo di Massenzio

by martin_nl

Archeologists believe that this stadium, built by Maxentius around 309AD, was in fact never finished. It is well preserved, and chariot starting stalls can still be made out.
The circus is a really nice area. It is very peaceful and quiet and you can just about sit here allday enjoying the silence and the nature.

Open: Tue-Sun 9:00-19:00 (to 17:00 Oct-Mar)
Entrance: EUR 2,60 or 1,60 (reduced for students and children)

Get smart!

by alisonr

These tiny little babies are all throughout Italy and France. They are great! Especially that they are Smart becuase (I think) they are 1/2 electric and 1/2 petrol. So good for parking and the environment too! Just watch out for them while crossing the street!

A Fun dining experience

by Rhondaj about Dino & Tony

This place was recommended here on VT by several members. Since we were staying right by we had to try it. Glad we did! It is definitely a must if you're in the area. We let Dino (or was it Tony) take control. (did we have a choice?) This dining experience was more like an event. This guy sings, bangs around pots and pans, banters with his help, regulars and tourists. We were quite entertained by the whole thing. There are a few small tables outside, but opt for inside. rigatoni in this unbelievably delicious (spicy) sauce (this was our second course I think)
for dessert we were presented with about 5-6 different plates and managed to eat most of it!
At the end of your dinner, you will get a delicious, complimentary limoncello. You'll manage to fit it in... :-)

Skip the Lines, buy your Colosseum ticket at......

by HippieFur

Dont buy your ticket for the Colosseum at the Colosseum... You will likely have to wait in a huge line... Instead,, go to Palatine Hill and buy your ticket there... There will probably be a tiny line or none... The ticket is good for both palatine hill AND the coliseum, and its the same price... So you could just skip Palantine hill, go right to the Colosseum, walk right past the line and go in, if you want to... but i recommend at least taking a look at Palatine hill... its a collection of ruins on the top of a hill overlooking rome...
