I'm trying to pick a hotel in Rome

by artistsworkshop

There are six of us and four have never been to Europe. I'm in charge of hotel selection. Is the problem with pick pockets so bad in Rome that I should avoid the train station area? We are willing to spend up to $150 a night, and would like to be located close to the sites, so we save time on travel.Expedia doesn't have much but they do include air fare so it's easy to do.

The worst area for pickpockets is on the crowded buses or subways where everyone is packed all together. Our family of 5 rented an apartment for several nights that was only 5 minutes walk from Termini Station. Since they include kitchen and sometimes laundry facilities it can work out to be much cheaper than a hotel. There are several apt broker web sites including venere.com and cross-pollinate.com, as a suggestion.

The first answer is correct in that it is opportunity (where people are squeezed together) rather than an area in particular ot lok out for for pickpockets, Rome or anywhere else.
After being round the houses we always stay at www.hotelmiami.com now, you can check availability and prices on the web site. However there are 101 great hotels in Rome - and dozens of bad ones - a very good site is the Italian based www.venere.com

The previous comments are quite true.

It would be a good idea to discuss with the 4 novices the skill with which Roman pickpockets part unwary travelers from their valuables...of course, as noted, they are able to do this because of the environment (like a crowded bus) and because North American tourists are often from smaller towns and have no experience with such behavior. I find that Americans from New York, for example, have no problem at all, because they are accustomed to big city ways.

Also note that Termini is actually on the eastern edge of the city center; that is, there are many places that are actually closer to the sites that are not next to Termini. Also note that the city center is fairly compact, so that even if you are staying over by Piazza Navona or Campo de' Fiori, for example, a taxi ride at the beginning and end of your stay to/from Termini will be quick and not outrageously expensive.

I agree with others that venere.com is a pretty accurate site. We have stayed in the outskirts and downtown. They both have advantages. Either way, nothing is very far and buses, metros and taxis are plenty. As for pick pockets, nothing is sacred. A young mother with her baby was caught by my husband while pick pocketing(?). She was furious when he grabbed her wrist to release his money clip. It was just a small amount because like every savy tourist we use money belts and neck pouches!:)

Travel Tips for Rome

Beware the Beach!

by endzoearth

If you're planning to hit the beach to soak up the sun while you're in Rome, be advised that many women do not wear tops. Not all the women go topless, but it's probably a good 10%, enough for an eyeful. So if you're traveling with children whose innocence you would like to guard, then you might think twice about going to the beach. However, if you don't mind the nudity, the beach at Lido Centro is actually quite a nice beach.

Palazzo della Sapienza

by sandysmith

In this little square in the old historic centre of a Rome, ignore the scaffolding around the baroque church of Sant'Ivo, by Borromini, and look up to admire its unusual spire which is twisted like a wedding cake effect and the exterior walls are a mass of complex concave and convex shapes.

Beware the bus

by rattay

The subway in Rome is very small - basically two lines that make an X through the city. So the bus is the best way to get around. The stops have signs for each bus that stops there which tell you the other stops on the route in order. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy and cheap. But beware the 64 - it's the one tourists usually take because it goes straight from termini to St. Peter's Basilica. Thus it is full of pick pockets so watch your stuff. Or if you can, take the 40 Express - it makes fewer stops and is not as crowded.

very Italian

by yasi about Da Nino

Tuscan food. Begin with some fennel-flavoured salami + typical vegetable ribollita. Then, in spite of the current Italian paranoia over BSE, order a steak which has been specially brought down from Tuscany’s Maremma area. End your meal with one of the best tiramisu in the world. definetly Tiramisu

Romes Greatest Ampitheatre

by jono84

The Colosseum is at the top of most peoples lists to visit, when they come to Rome, and i was no different....... once i laid my eyes upon it i was stung by its powerful, towering presence.

It was originally commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in AD 72, and emperors would often use it to throw up great gladitorial combats and bloody animal fights for the thousands, in order to gain popularity.

The capacity of the Colossum was around 55,000, and the hoards would be seated in sections according to rank.

Once inside you can get an audio tour, but far better to wander around this awesome ampitheatre at your own pace, to truly understand what went on inside its walls, and to imagine what a packed Colosseum ready for a battle would have felt like.......

You'll also find dozens of men outside dressed in gladiators costumes, so if you have a little extra money to burn then you can have your Colosseum experience 'heightened' by having your picture taken with an 'ancient' warrior.

You may also be surprised, once inside, that the arena floor is no longer in place. What you can see now is a network of lifts and old cages for wild nimals.
