Staying and traveling around the Castelli Romani

by upesnlwc

If I DO NOT rent a car while staying in Frascati, Italy, is it possible to get to other villages like Marino, Rocco di Papa, etc...via public or private transportation like buses or taxis?

I know that we can catch a train from Frascati to Rome for relatively inexpensive, but am concerned that it will be tough to tour some of the "Off the Beaten Path" locations like vineyards and other mountaintop towns.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Staying and traveling around the Castelli Romani

You will be able to get around at least to the main villages either by using the train or by using the bus (CoTRAL, the regional bus company). However, you will probably find that some (many?) of your trips especially by train will be into Rome and back out again in another direction. For example, your Frascati-Marino trip by train will involve going in the direction of Rome and getting off at Ciampino to change trains.

You can see this at - note that Marino is "Marino Laziale" to differentiate from some other places.

For Rocca di Papa, while there appears to be at least one direct bus, most solutions will involve a change, probably at Grottaferrata.

The website for the bus is but its English support is spotty (I never use it), and can be a bit of a hassle to use (the trenitalia site is much easier to use, but the train doesn't go everywhere).

The hassle in touring the mountain top towns will be two-fold: limited schedules for some of them (the hours are often attuned to commuters and schoolkids) as well as little or no service on Sundays and holidays. Most towns will have some sort of service - how else do the locals get around? Each Italian family having a car is a relatively recent phenomenon (i.e., last few decades).

While we're on the subject, CoTRAL does have passes that are good for all ATAC buses (i.e., City of Rome), CoTRAL buses (i.e., out in the region of Lazio around Rome), and FS trains (only the regional trains, not the more expensive premium trains) that service the zones that you pay for. See
where, remarkably, CoTRAL has something in English.

As for the zones, see the last tip of mine at
Here you will find a link to the zone map. Actually, the map is sort of useless, but following the map is the list of cities, each color coded to indicate which zone they are in, so if you know where you're planning on going, you can figure out the number of zones you need from here.

As for visiting stuff in the countryside (like vineyards) that will definitely be hit or might end up doing a lot of walking...

Personally, if I were staying in Frascati, I would rent the car, because you will be able to get around to those other places much more quickly than on public transport. And Rome itself won't be a problem because you can just park the car and take the commuter train from Frascati into Rome and do the city on foot...

Travel Tips for Rome

Earthquakes in Rome.

by breughel

When visiting and writing reviews about Roman monuments I read so much about earthquakes shaking the Colosseum half a dozen times, destroying Basilica's, that I felt it my duty to add this type of event to "Rome warnings and dangers".

Don't think this danger is just far away in the past; on 22/08/2005 the centre of Rome felt an earthquake of 4.5 on the Righter scale. There was a lot of talking between neighbours on the streets but no serious damages.
And closer to us on 12/04/2008 a small earthquake has shaken the Alban Hills southeast of Rome during the night and woke many people.

Don't think that nothing serious can happen and that pickpockets are much more a danger than earthquakes! On 26 September 1997 strong earthquakes struck central Italy and shook Assisi so strongly that frescoed vaults of the upper Basilica collapsed.

When I wrote this in 2008 I could not imagine what was going to happen one year later in Aquila..

This night (6/04/2009) a terrible earthquake struck the mountainous Abruzzo region with the city of Aquila at 100 Km east of Rome. There are more than 250 death and enormous destructions. All my sympathy goes to the victims.

Italy is a country that...

by BlkSnowBunny

Italy is a country that haggles. Whenever out on the town at small vendors, negotiate for a cheaper price. This IS a cultural thing in Italy. The Italians even negotiate what they are going to pay on their taxes.

Civita di Bagnoregio

by janchan

Civita di Bagnoregio ... called the dying town, because it is slowly falling down in the valley. So, you have to visit it... NOW... or it could be too late !!

It is located in Viterbo province, at about 130 km north west of Rome.
To get there, take the highway A1 for Florence and get out at Orvieto.

A day on the airport

by chicabonita

It was the first time I booked a flight with Ryanair. It was supposed to leave at 10.10am on a cold and snowy Tuesday morning. After waiting an hour. It was announced that the flight is cancelled due to some technical problems. The next one was at 7.50pm. So we changed the reservation on the evening plan as well as the flight back. The worst was that we had to kill many many hours on a small airport (Hahn, for me just in the middle of nowhere) where there is nothing to do ....

Evangelista’s: A Local Treat

by von.otter

Dinner at Evangelista’s should include the house specialty, carciofi al mattone (see photo #1).

This crepe-like dish is made by frying the fully opened artichoke under two hot bricks, mattone.

Another outstanding choice here is vignarola (see photo #2), a Roman spring vegetable dish made from fresh fava beans, artichokes and peas.

We eat outside; the street was quiet and the tables are well-protected from passers-by, of which there were few, with a row of planters filled with bamboo.

This is truly a local spot; we were the only Americans in the place.

This restaurant is only open for dinner.
