Lodging On Outskirts of Rome

by travelingie

Looking for 1-2 nights lodging In March (week after Easter) for 6 (2 double and 2 single rooms) on outskirts of Rome, as we'll have a large car and I don't want to hassle with parking and driving in the city. Will do metro, bus, or taxis in Rome. We'll be coming from and returning to Tuscany after visiting Rome. Looking for an affordable hotel, B&B or apartment.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Re: Lodging On Outskirts of Rome

One suggestion is to look for hotels along the Via Aurelia, the main highway entering Rome from the west. I know there is a Holiday Inn along there, and there was a Jolly Hotel (although maybe it's changed hands?).

In any case, the larger chain hotels along the Aurelia tend to have ample outdoor parking, because the tour groups use them, and there needs to be room for the buses - also, obviously, the dirt is cheaper and they can build bigger hotels outside the city center.

If you are staying on the Aurelia, then getting to the hotel is relatively simple in that as you approach Rome, you take the ringroad around to the west, get off at the Via Aurelia exit, then drive towards the city center. However, you'll reach the hotel long before you hit the actual city center with its limited traffic zones, high traffic, etc. Ditto when you're ready to leave - just drive out the Aurelia to the ringroad (it's very easy to get to the airports this way).

Also, Via Aurelia has plenty of buses on it that go into the center, and on some places of the Aurelia, there are Metro stops not all that far away (1/2 to 1 kilometers).

We took an apartment some years ago at the very eastern end of the Aurelia, nestled up against the Vatican. I have not recommended it to you for two reasons: (1) they prefer a week of longer stay, and (2) they have onsite parking in a very crowded garage. It gave my wife the creeps to watch me maneuver around all the pillars heeheehee. That's why the open parking lots of the tour group hotels outside the city center will probably work better for you.

This is a big help--thanks. Although I'm tempted to try the garage--sounds like fun, although with a large van, probably not something that's worth the effort.

We're doing apartments and B&Bs in Tuscany, so a hotel will work fine for 1-2 nights in Rome.

Thanks again.

Travel Tips for Rome

Have a good map while wandering

by Packerman

Have a good map. This one was perfect. It's a spiral map of Rome. Small and convenient, and so easy to find anything in Rome without spending alot of time looking at it. That way you won't be a theives target for long. It is good to have a plan before leaving in the morning of where you would like to go for the day. Is time money?

STOP FOR A MOMENT and notice...

by ClaesDenmark

STOP FOR A MOMENT and notice how well organized Italy is to do with 2nd use of things. How often they clean the streets. That there are SO MANY places for any trash. Look here ! There are even special ashtrays in the steets

How do I get there?

by xxgirasolexx

The best way to get to the center of Rome from Fiumicino's Leonardo da Vinci airport is by train. You can buy a ticket at the shops marked T for Tabacchi or something like that. You have like two options... One is to take the train to the main train station Termini. From Termini you can take the Metro all around the city or catch a train to any other location in Europe. The other option is to take the train to the other train station Tiburtina. (Thank you, Daniele!)

Delicious Gelato

by lina112 about Gelateria

You must eat al least one ice cream a day. Its delicious and is not expensive between 1 euro and 2 euros. I love ice cream and must to confess that one of the reasons that i wanted to go to Rome was to have ice cream and i did it. I remember one gelateria in a street close to piazza navona where ice cream was ummmmmm and they have a board with pictures of famous peple that have been there. Its a pitty dont remember the name of the gelateria but if you ask you will find it.

Si vas a Roma o alguna otra ciudad de Italia una de las cosas que debes hacer es comerte al menos 1 helado al día. Estan cremosos y deliciosos, debo confesar que una de las razones por las que quería ir a Roma era para comer helados, aparte de visitar la ciudad. De precio no está mal depende del tamaño que lo quieras los precios varían pero no son nada caros. Recuerdo una heladería en una calle cerca de la plaza navona en la cual tenían un tablón con fotos colgadas de gente sobre todo famosa que había estado en la heladería, en ese sitio los helados estaban buenísimos.

Experience an open air market in the heart of Rome

by jeffmartinartist

Ingredients are the starting point of any good meal. If you enjoy or have enjoyed food in Italy and don’t understand why that excuse for an Italian restaurant in your hometown can’t come close to your expectations. Ingredients is the starting point of any food investigation, even before technique or love. And this is one very convenient place to start looking for good ingredients. Buy a few things for a picnic cheese bread and a good tomato. If you don’t understand how exciting good produce can be..... there is a Mc what’sit just up the road.

The fresh porcini I purchased from this market went into the best risotto I have ever made.
