Train transportation in Italy

by goldenm

My wife and I are planning to visit Italy this coming September. We plan to be in Rome, Florence and Naples, where all intercity will be done by train. Both my wife and I are handcapped, and though we do not use wheelchairs we do have problems walking. My questions are as follows:

1. Are there airport style wagons at the train stations to bring our baggage to the entrance of the station?
2. Conversly, are there porters who will do the work for me (for a fee, of course)?
3. I noticed for pictures that the entrance to the train involve climbing one or two steep steps. Is there some kind of ramp available for getting on the train?

Though I am postiong this in the Rome forum the questions pertain also to Florence and Naples.

Hello. I don't know if this is exactly what you need but here are some links to the Italian railway company, Trenitalia.
About disabled passengers assistance in general: http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=052ff172e719a110VgnVCM1000003f16f90aRCRD

about ordering porter to meet you: http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=1e06438a5719a110VgnVCM1000003f16f90aRCRD

Here is a link so you can contact the different stations by e-mail to ask what they can do for you specifically.

Hopefully you come a little closer to a solution by this. Regards Lars.

Travel Tips for Rome

Trastevere

by AmericanBoy

This is a typical building in Trastevere.

Trastevere is a maze of tiny cobblestone streets. For travellers who love wandering through Paris's left bank and stumbling into a little restaurant. THIS is the place for you in Rome. Piazza Egido is a good place to get your bearings and start wandering. If you have been in Italy for a while and need a taste of home... Egido also has 3 screen movie theatre called Pasquino's showing films in ENGLISH!!. (The ticket guy never has change.. so have small bills, and expect movies to be at least 2 months behind)

Old and Cool: Ostia Antica

by kanjon

Take the time to go to Ostia Antica, the harbour city of ancient Rome, said to be originating as far back as 7th century BC. It is a nice day-tour with so much beautiful to experience!

Be sure not to be in a hurry, we were strolling the area for hours, bringing a picnic. There are so many fascinating details, remarkable frescoes and individual decorations, mosaics and old inscriptions and inspiring messages from the past such as "As long as ye are thirsty, drink from the bowl." We brought our own bowls but were not late to follow the instructions.

The city has gone through a lot and it is fascinating to follow the everyday life through the remnants: visit old shops , temples and and baths with wonderful mosaics in black and white.

Being a harbour, Ostia used to be situatied by the sea, at the mouth of the Tiber, about 30 km west from Rome. Today, the sea has withdrawn three kilometres. Rome´s closest beach, Ostia-Lido lies there today (continue furter on the train-line to get to the ocean-breeze). The sea may be gone somewhere else, but Ostia stays.

Take the Metro to station Piramide. Go up the escalator, turn left and take the stairs down to the Roma-Lido station. Exit at Ostia-Antica. A normal metro ticket should take you all the way.

Entrance fee about 7 €
Closed Mondays

Druids Rock

by paddymc09 about Irish Pub

Since I had been running around Rome alone with no one to hang out with, I thought it wont hurt to go relax in an Irish Pub since I had just spent so much time in Dublin.
Well this worked out good for me so this is where I spent my nights, hanging around outside in the beer garden just enjoying where my life had taken, since I thought that I would never get to see Rome!
This is a good place to relax inside or outside have a smoke or two with some of the locals or others that are out and about on travels. Dress how you like , pubs are always pretty good with what ever you wear.

Happy Hour 10:00 - 20:00 - drink reductions and promotions - Vodka Red Bull, Guinness, Irish Coffee etc.

LIVE MUSIC - Every Weekend the Druid's Rock offers live Music with different bands (Italian and Irish) providing you with free live Music of all types - Rock, Indie, Jazz etc

Take Away

by NYC2TLV about Chagat at 66th (Kosher)

This small take away joint is located in the Jewish Ghetto next to MKosher. They offer many types of sandwiches and snacks all meat, no dairy products on the premises. There is limited seating available inside, but they do set up chairs outside. Frankly, I thought that the food was very kid friendly and good if you need a cheap meal on the go, or if you would like to buy something that you can bring with you as you walk the city.

The menu is a cross of Italian snacks like panini (sandwiches) and Middle Eastern dishes such as shawarma and felafel. Kosher certification is given by the Rabbinate of Roma, Italy.

Watching the pope from Piazza San Pietro

by bvizzle12

It was an amazing feeling for me to be able to see the pope and stand right there on Piazza San Pietro.

Go inside and look at the amazing art, make sure you cover your shoulders and do not wear anything above your knees, they will not let you in!

Then walk the stairs inside the cupola, it's quiet a workout but well worth it once you are on top and have this amazing view of Piazza San Pietro and the entire city of Rome.
