I'm afraid there's almost always crowds at the major tourist destinations in Rome. My best advice is to visit these either as early as possible in the day or late afternoon. That was our rule of thumb, and it worked pretty well!

The only crowds specifically for this will be in and around the Vatican City.
The rest of Rome will be as normal.

You should be ok. Rome really gets busy during the summer, not that much in October. That period of time, despite the event, should be a very pleasant oneto visit the Eternal City. Of course Rome is always packed with tourists, but the months of autumn are relatively quiet compared to the summer period. I wouldn't worry too much about the crowd, really.

I was in Rome when Jose Maria Escriva was canonised back in 2002 and nothing was any different only at the Vatican of course, but we were lucky to go to the Vatican on the days preceding the canonisation. Not a problem.

Might i add however, that we Australians have waited a long time to see Mary McKillop canonised, so you could come across groups of Aussies partying around Rome in celebration of the event, but I don't think they would be te type of people who be overly exuberant in their joy. Rome in October by the way, is really beautiful.

I too am proud to eventually have an australian saint ( and I'm not ac tually a catholic) but I don't particularly like huge crowds , would one assume that the vatican will be Ok to visit on 20/or 21st Oct.

Re: mary Mckillop

by Maryimelda

Absolutely, it will be all over by then. Don't let it worry you, it would be a shame to spoil the enjoyment you get in looking forward to a holiday by something that probably won't impact you in any way at all. Have a great trip.

Travel Tips for Rome

Gelato!

by Marpessa

Unless you are allergic to ice-cream, you cannot go to Rome (or Italy) and not have some ice-cream (gelato). Italy has the best gelato I have ever eaten. The strawberry (fragola) gelato actually tastes like strawberry, instead of just looking pink, like it does here (in Australia). Sometimes you have to go to a few different ice cream parlours before you find a parlour that gives you a lot of gelato for a reasonable price (sometimes they expect you to pay 6 Euro for 2 small scoops - not good enough!).

You can get it in cones or in cups and there are always heaps of flavours to choose from. My favourite was to ask "Vorrei una gelato con cioccolata, fragola e ananas, per favore." Which in my very poor Italian is "I would like one ice cream with chocolate, strawberry and pineapple, please". This was especially enjoyable on the warm summer nights I was there, and my friends and I would just sit in a piazza or stroll along the streets happy with our delicious treats.

You can find ice cream parlours along nearly every main street in Rome, and a whole lot of side streets as well, as it is the traditional dessert in Italy. Buon appetite!

Roman architectural brilliance

by Jenniflower

It's only when one hears how well organised and arranged this arena was, can one start to fully appreciate the huge amount of creative thought and design that went into it's creation.

It's real name is of course the Flavian Amphitheatre, as it was built by 3 Flavian emperors, Titus, Vespasian and Domitian. Iconic, Doric and Corinthian colums form part of the coliseum, which is in itself quite something.

Many of these can be seen in good order today still, most have been ravished by time and the weather.

This was a very cultural and rich part of an ancient Roman's life. It came to a halt when Rome became a Christian city.

It's rocks were then carted off to help build the walls of the city, and along with weathering and general ruin, we have what is left today.

Still beautiful though!

Taste of the Orient -besides Chinese food & Sushi

by icunme

The Museo Nazionale D' Arte Orientale (National Museum of Oriental Art) has its home in the Palazzo Bracciano. Here you will find a very noteworthy collection of artworks including ceramic neolitico vases from the Qing dynasty and an illustrated history of Buddha. The Palace itself is a treasure to behold and in the ticket office foryer was the first marquetry ceiling I have ever seen. You ascend two majestic flights of red-carpeted marble stairs before reaching the ticket office. Entrance fee is 4 Euro. Photos were not permitted inside the museum but we were able to take a few photos of the exterior and the Palace entrace stairs. The literature on the Museum is in Italian only and only Italian-speaking staff were available.
Address: Via Merulana 248 - 00185 Roma - between Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore & Labicana
Enjoy...........

Buses of Rome

by codrutz

Tip: Find a map of Rome that shows clearly the routes of the buses! Most of the maps that you will find in Rome shows the metro system, that is pretty easy to usem because there are only two lines, A and B. But buses are another thing. I had two maps and neither showed the routes of the bus, but only if you made some difficult search which takes time. Though after you find the desired bus, the rides aren't so smooth like lets say in Paris, because the streets are pretty uneven and the ride are very bumpy. You should though take the 115 bus to the Janicullum hill in Trastevere. 115 and 116 are electric buses and they aren't use by locals because they move to slow, so they are like a tour bus you can ride with only 1 eur (the cost of a normal ticket).

Da Mario - near the Spanish Steps and
La Carbonara - in the Campo de' Fiori
If the weather permits, always try to eat outdoors at any restaurant you go to. The Veal dishes are to die for, but everything is wonderful in Italy.
Da Mario - Braised Beef and
