Vatican hours Wednesday

by Fig33

I am travelling with my oldest niece to Rome for one day, on Wednesday October 3rd. I know there is usually a Papal audience on Wednesday and that access to St. Peter's is 'restricted' till after the audience. Does anyone know when the audience starts, how long they generally last and if 'restricted' means absolutely no admittance or just reduced numbers? It's my niece's first visit to Rome and we need to be back at the main metro terminal by 1745hr so I'm wondering how early we should be able to get into St. Peter's? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Cheers David

The General Audience starts at 10:00 a.m., when the Pope is in town. How long do they last? Hmmmn, I forget...a couple of hours max? The real thing is that you'll be getting there a lot earlier than 10 in order to go through security, find your assigned section (if you have one) or a great place to stand, etc.

When I was last there, I confess to not paying attention to whether people were going inside the Basilica at all during the audience, but given where the Papal stage is set up, I would expect that no one is allowed in the Basilica until after the audience, because that would be behind the "stage".

You say you need to be at the "main metro termini"? You mean Termini, which is the main train station (and also happens to be the intersection of the two Metro lines)? May I ask where you are going? If you are on a cruise with a day in Rome, there are closer train stations than Termini that will get you back to Civitavecchia; if not, well nevermind ;-)

If you can get to the Metro station called Ottaviana (north east of the Vatican a little way), you'll be able to get to Termini in a few minutes, so 17:00 would be OK. If the audience breaks up by noon, then that would give you almost 5 hours for the Basilica...you know, the next time, I should pay attention to these things ;-)

Hi We were there on a Wednesday, October 2005, we visited the Vatican Museums on tour approx 8am and when we finished there we walked around to Stpeters Square approx 10:30 and watched the Pope, he had already commenced. We did not attempt to gain entry to the basilica as we were informed it was closed. Some of our group returnes approx 2:30 and gained entry after waiting a few minutes. So you should have plenty of time to view the Basilica. One of the regrets I have is we did not take a guided tour of St Peters, there is so much to see we were looking at beautiful things but did not know what they were etc etc. Also being so large we most likely bypassed some of the best parts.

Have a look through Vt pages on St Peters Basilica and Vatican City to research before you visit.

Good Luck,

Travel Tips for Rome

Street Vendors Could Be Illegal

by avanutria

I was on a tour of the Coliseum in Rome, and our groups was about to go inside. Suddenly several dozen people with big blankets full of stuff came running away from the main streets. Our tour guide said these were street vendors who were not supposed to be in the country, and they were making money by selling merchendise to tourists. Apparently there was an undercover police raid - a guy was there with a professional quality video camera filming the runners, and later on a police van came by to pick up dropped or abandoned goods. The guys selling watches were probably able to run away faster than the ones selling handbags!

University, old building

by tompt

The university of Rome has more buildings, but this building at the Via Eudosiana 18 is extremely beautifull. The palmtrees in front complete the picture of the beige yellow building with its nice pictures on the facade. The pictures depict the faculties as mathematics, fysics and so on.

Taxi to the airport

by Clareyqc

Make sure that if someone orders you a taxi to or from the airport that they are clear exactly what airport you are going to. The reason being is that the reception at the hotel i stayed at wrongly advised the taxi firm to go to the wrong airport.. i.e. there are 2 and not 1 airport in Rome.
Only due to us realising by looking at the signpost we realised. And when we told the taxi driver he was trying to charge us 20 euros more even though the taxi was well over the price it should have been in the first place. It didn't help that he couldn't speak a word of english and i only knew a small amount of italian.. Because we refused to pay the extra amount he threatened to throw us out of the cab on a motorway and then drove us down some country lanes off the main route - thankfully these were only scare tactic to get us to pay for the extra fare. I am very relieved to be here now to warn people about this as we could have been less fortunate..
Flights like ryanair offer buses services to and from the airport this works out a lot cheaper and also a lot safer. Although i appreciate this isn't always practical.

Pizzarium, the best pizza to go in Rome!

by JoelArias about Pizzarium

This is possibly the best "Pizza to go" in all of Rome. The facade looks like any other place around Rome, but looks are definitely deicing when it comes to Pizzarium. I was told that the flour and olive oil used at “Pizzarium” are specifically brought from outside Rome for their kitchen. Also, the cheese tastes extremely fresh. All the pizzas are great and the Foccacia are a must to try.
