Budget Trattorias Vatican Area

by Gema37

Does anyone knows a trattoria/cafe bar for a quick lunch near the Vatican area???. We heard is quiet expensive. We have Vatican Tour in the morning and Scavi tour afternoom so we are looking for a place to have lunch between the two. Budget 8/9 euros. Is this a challenge??????..Thanks on advance

Hi, there are several eateries on the Via Della Conciliazione, but you'd be pushed to find anything there within your budget.
An alternative is a 10 minute walk away on the other side of the river.
Alfredo e Ada, Via Banchi Nuovi 14. Tel:06/6878842
There prices for lunch range from 7 to 17 euros(average).
To reach this establishment, cross the Tiber via Ponte Vittorio Emanuelle 11
and continue along the Corso Vittorio Emanuelle 11. Take the second turning left
onto Via Del Banco di Santo Spirito then 1st right onto Via dei Banchi Nuovi.
A lot depends on how long you have between tours.
If time is tight, then you may be stuck using one of the establishments closer to the Vatican.

Have you considered stopping at a deli/grocery and doing a picnic? We hit up a deli just across the river for about 10 euro for two and had plenty left over. And it was a quick yet relaxing lunch. Hope this helps.

Or you can take a piece of pizza!

I was thinking the same thing as Fabiana - stop by a pizzeria that sells by the slice ("a taglio" I believe). These places usually don't even have any tables or chairs, just counters. You walk in, tell them how many slices of which pizza under glass that you want, and what you want to drink, and then you stand at the counter or walk outside and eat it.

The area just to the east of the Vatican is indeed considered an expensive area, simply because they know that they get a lot of tourists...although one of my favorite Roman restaurants ("Frederico's") was actually at the far end of this area near Castel Sant'Angelo...but I can't imagine that you could eat even there for 8/9 euro.

No, when you head from the Museums in the direction of the Scavi office, keep on going south until you come to the major street that runs along the south side of the Vatican (Via di Porta Cavalleggeri). Take a right and follow the Vatican wall. You will shortly (about 100 meters) see a road split off to the right (i.e., closer to the wall) - this is the Via Aurelia. Some years ago along this stretch was a large tourist restaurant (avoid), a Chinese restaurant (we did take out once - funny, they didn't include rice ;-) ), and a pizzeria that sold pizza by the slice (a very nice hardworking couple from Abruzzi, I think). Even if these same places aren't still there, note that this side of the Vatican is not the touristy side. In fact, speaking of grocery stores, there was a nice (but small, like most such places in the city) grocery store on Via di Porta Cavalleggeri just across from Via Aurelia (or just to the west - but on the south side of the street).

In any case, as you wander around this area, you are still no more than a couple of hundred meters from the Ufficio Scavi...

Travel Tips for Rome

Festa della Donna (International Women's Day)

by tini58de

On March 8, there is the the international (?) women's day - and the habit is, that men give yellow mimosas to the most important woman of their life............

All over Rome you can see both stands to sell the flowers as well as women carrying the mimosas!

View from Trinità dei Monti

Sometimes, when in famous places like Spanish Steps or Colosseum, we forget to take a look around... The building you see on this picture, for example, is the Babington Tea Room near the Steps as seen from the top of them...

Line A and B

by ayesh

For sightseeing that goes beyond the walking distance you are willing to cover there are several good options. The first is the subway. In rush hour, do not be surprised if you don´t manage to get into the graffiti coloured metro, due to the immense amount of people around you that have the same idea. Although it can get extremely crowded (and I can say I am used to crowded metros, cause I travel with them each single day) it is still a very fast and good way to get around.
Make sure you have the exact change in your pocket though for the ticket machines. (in my time there a 75 minute ticket was € 0,77)

Tea Time

by von.otter about Babbington’s

“You can do few better things than go often to Villa Borghese and sit on the grass — on a stout bit of drapery — and watch its exquisite stages.”
from “Italian Hours,” 1909 by Henry James

TEA TIME After a walk through the near-by Villa Borghese, and a visit to the exquisite Galleria Borghese and its gardens, you may need a refreshing pick-me-up. Try a spot of tea at Babbington’s, at the foot of the Spanish Steps. This sweet little shop is a refuge from the hubbub of the city. Sit back and relax with a hot cup of tea and biscuits (what are known in the USA as cookies). A light lunch can also be had here.

Founded in 1893 by Anna Maria Babbington and Isabel Cargill, Babbington’s is still serving the needs of travelers from its original location on Piazza di Spagna. For centuries the area around the Spanish Steps was a gathering spot for English travelers on the Grand Tour. The choice of this location made ideal sense. Today, descendants of Miss Cargill’s family manage the shop these two English ladies created.

of course!

Obviously you havent seen Rome without having seen the Coliseum. We walked past it almost by accident on our first evening in Rome - we just hadn't realised how close together everything is. You can walk from the train station all the way to the Vatican in about 40 minutes.

For photo opportunities, Rome by night is wicked - any idiot (i.e. me) can take some decent pictures.
