by ChepassaChica07

Hi all you happy VTers!

We are arriving in Rome on 8 October, can you reccommend:

1. A good hotel (4*) - centrally located
2. Restaurants - also non italian if any!
3. Shopping - not expensive stores like Gucci etc.

And if you have any other tips about what to do, what to see, please do tell!!

Thank you in advance and have a fab weekend ;O)

Hi Venezia, 4* hotels in Rome do not come cheap as a rule. There are several 4 and 5* hotels on and around the Via Veneto. They are luxurious and, of course, come with all the trimmings. The main problem in this part of town is walking up and down hills to reach the hotels. My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Rex, Via Torino 149, Roma 00184. It has a 4* rating and doesnt cost the astronomical prices levied on the Via Veneto.
You can check it out at www.hotelrex.net phone number:(39)06 482 4828

Rome has restaurants in droves. We have always eaten Italian food when we go there but I'm sure you will have no problem finding other ethnic establishments.
For some of the best Italian food and where the locals eat, cross the Tiber into the area called Trastevere. You will find an abundance of good Italian restaurants here. Try Quirino's

Hotel Rex at Via Torino 149 from above reply would be a good bet, as is www.hotelmiami.com literally around the corner on Via Nazionale 230.

Loads of choice for restaurants, Chinese Buon Sapore beside the Pantheon, two good Indian restaurants especially Mother India on Via dei Serpenti near the Colloseum and National Monument. Remember that they all tend to be regional restaurants rather than 'Italian', with Sicilian and Tuscan probably the pick of them to my mind. There are Roman dishes never really make it to menus due to offal not translating to the wider tastes catered for in restauarants too successfully

Travel Tips for Rome

Learning to cross the street in Rome...

by Erin74

Romans drive like maniacs. And even if you are in the crosswalk, they will still try to mow you down. Some tips we picked up to help you survive: (1) Don't make eye contact! For some reason, if you look at the driver it's like challenging him or her. Just look straight ahead and walk with a purpose. (2) Try to stand next to a nun. Honestly. Cars will come to a screeching halt for a nun, so you're much safer in proximity. (3) Be really, really careful.

Most Flights arrive at Roma...

by swissgabe

Most Flights arrive at Roma Fumicino Airport. From there there is a shuttle train around every 30min to Roma Termini Station. The trip takes around 30min an costs you less or more 20'000 ITL (10USD).
Buy a daily City Card for Metro/Bus/Tram...
I wouldn't drive car in this city. Too dangerous, motorcycle would be ok if you pay attention...

Eating in Trastevere

by rita_simoes about Ristorante La Scala

La Scala is a very famous restaurant in Rome, in Trastevere. I found it a little overpriced and touristy, but the food was good!

I had bruschetta with tomato and spaghetti all'arrabbiata (tipical of Rome) and it was quite good, though a little bit too spicy for my taste! But everyone's food was good.

Just as a warning, don't expect big quantities!

Colosseo

by anzzz

Obviously, this is the symbol of Rome. I enjoyed watching the Colosseo at night rather than daytime, it's more beautiful with all those lights.

In the daytime you can also visit it, the entrance is 10 euros. Don't know if it's worth it, I had doubts so I didn't go. If you're not on budget like I was, do go and see for yourself and tell me what I missed :)
