Italy Rail Travel

by schnurman

Does the local railroad system offer regional passes that provide unlimited travel per day or a number of days? We will be visiting Tuscany and stay a week in Florence but would like to take side trips to other cities by train.

Re: Italy Rail Travel

Italian trains are really quite reasonably priced and if you manage to get an amica fare by booking the day before - even more reasonable

have you checked the trenitalia site for prices? you might be suprised at how cheap they are

the received wisdom is that things like the eurail pass just aren't worth it for italy

i am not sure if they do have the kind of pass you are looking for

and everything is so close together in italy too - it is not like you have to travel a long way from florence to go to some amazing places

Re: Italy Rail Travel

In a word..."no".

Well, actually, Trenitalia does, but the passes are only available for people who are residents of Italy and are good for at least a month - i.e., they're for commuters, not tourists.

But Jen is quite correct that the point-to-point ticket price of regional trains (especially) is quite cheap. This is why it is very difficult for people to save money by buying the Eurailpass - the pass is typically more expensive than just buying the tickets there.

Look at my Italy page under Transportation Tips to find out how to use the Trenitalia website for look up pricing, as well as a discussion of how we prove that Eurailpasses are more expensive than point-to-point tickets.

i didn't think they did - and why should they when they are so cheap?

Travel Tips for Rome

Egypt in Rome?

by sinoda

The area around the station of Ostiense might not be the most elegant but there certainly are interesting sights. When I visited Rome for the first time I came in by train from Fiumicino. On the way I suddenly spotted a pyramid on my left hand side.

Wasn't I surprised, was I?

There is a real pyramide in Rome close to the station of Ostiense. It's not as huge as the ones in Egypt, but it's still massive.

Go and have a look at it!

Basilica di San Clemente

by gigina

This attractive church is a few minutes walk from the Colosseum, up Via di San Giovanni in Laterano. The basilica is airy, with an attractive cloister. A gorgeous mosaic in the apse is rich and colourful, with charming animal details. But the best attraction lies underground. In the Basilica di San Clemente, three levels of history are preserved one above the other. Below the present church, which was begun in 1108 and reconstructed six centuries later, lies an older church. This is an extremely ancient place of worship, and was mentioned by St Jerome in 392. It was destroyed by the Normans, and the later church was built above it, but you can still walk around the earlier structure and admire some remarkable frescoes. These include a fine account of the life of St. Alexis - read the entertaining text provided.

The deepest level consists of ancient Roman constructions, including a narrow alleyway and an assortment of small rooms including an early Christian meeting place. The most interesting section is the Mithraeum, with its characteristic stone benches and Mithraic altar, and a Mithraic 'schoolroom'.

Tip: the small shop/ticket office sells a very good range of postcards, including details of the mosaic which make good gifts and Christmas cards. Entrance to the subterranean archeological site is €3.

Quo Vadis, Baby?

by piccolina about Arena Garbatella, of course...

For the most of you Arena Garbatella will stay forever an unknown spot...It doesn't matter.
It is for me, as a place far from any others nightlife spot in Roma.
Why the tip? Just to remeber. It's not required any special kind of dress, take just with you the right feeling to spend 2 hours watching a movie sat in a park, waiting for the break to eat pop-corn and share a beer.

A unique local experience

by Bandearg about Hosteria Pizzeria "Da Vito E Dina"

The welcome from Vito himself was legendary..
"Buono Sera.. I am Vito Corleone.. you must come inside now and eat in my restaurant."
And who were we to refuse?
The restaurant was simple and clean, the food was fantastic. Very traditional fare served somewhat slow, but if you're dining in Roma.. why rush? Our group of 8 were warmly received and catered for beautifully. The Prosecco, which was chilled to perfection, was fantastic and around Euro 8 a bottle.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and from the Prima piati to the dolce everything was served piping hot, and beautifully fresh.
The owners wife, Dina was a character, punctuated her sentences with screams to the kitchen in Italian, and then smiled sweetly back at us as if we hadn't heard a thing because it was said in a different language!
This one is most definitely on my return to list when I get back to Roma. All of their Antipasti and Prima Piati (starters) were amazing and the kids all raved about the pizzas.

Roma Pass lets you jump the line

by milliturtle

I've seen the outside of the Colosseum a few years ago, so this time, my friends and I decided to actually go inside. Armed with the Roma Pass, which includes a 3 day transport pass and admission to 2 of the sites on the list, we hopped onto the metro to get to the Colosseo station. The station is just around the corner from the actual site.

We found out pretty quickly that Roma Pass holders have a special line to enter the site, so we zipped inside in about 5 minutes, mainly because it takes about 3 minutes to walk from the entrance to the Roma Pass scanners. The Roma Pass line is right next to the Group ticket line. As far as we can tell, the line for buying tickets barely bulged during this time. The pass does not include the audio guide rental though.

The interior of the Colosseum is interesting, but as we did not have any audio guide (or guidebooks), we were not able to appreciate the architecture as much. Since we got to the site at around 11am or so, the site was quite crowded, so it actually took a while for us to circle the upper level of the Colosseum. Then we had trouble finding the stairs that will take you to the bottom tier to take a closer look at the area that was under the stage. It was rather hot at that time, so bring lots of water. We ended up staying about 1.5 hours, although much of it was spent just trying to get around the place than actually "sightseeing".

Since my group has only a passing interest in architecture and the fact that we got off the plane about 3 hours before, the 1.5 hour visit was not as enjoyable as we'd initially hoped. (That's not to say the site itself wasn't interesting, we just weren't in the right frame of mind to appreciate it.) Oh, the guys in Roman Gladiator costumes are very aggressive, so beware when you try to take pictures of them.

If you want an unobstructed view of the Colosseum, make sure you visit the much less crowded (and more tree-lined) Palatine Hills. We were able to take crazy pictures with the Colosseum in the background for 5 to 10 minutes before people even noticed us.
