New Year Parade in Rome

by katrin4321

What hours will be New Year Parade in Rome? I can't find it in internet. What the best place to see it?

Re: New Year Parade in Rome

by domenicococozza

The Rome New Year's Parade goes along the Via della Conciliazione finishing in St. Peter's Square. Spectators tend to walk alongside, but be prepared to mix with thousands of people.

If the route is what Dom indicates, it must be a very short parade ;-)...but since I wasn't in Rome over New Year's either time, I don't know any better...

The official Rome tourism office has some stuff about previous years, but nothing about 2010 or 2011, so I've sent them an email to see if they're ready to put up some content for the 2011 parade (if one)...let's see if they respond...

Bill may put me right on this, but from memory, the bands congregate on Piazza Pia, then march down the Via Della Concilliazione to Piazza San Pietro.
They then perform in the Piazza.
I remember the entire area being packed to the gunwales with people.
We didn't follow the bands but were with thousands of people waiting for them in Piazza San Pietro.
When they arrived, we couldn't really see much.

Dom, I can't put you right since, like I said, I've never been in Rome for New Year's Day ;-)

If indeed there is an event in the Piazza, I would think that watching from the colonnade might be best, as the Piazza is somewhat bowl shaped with the colonnades along the rim of the bowl...but Dom is right that if there is an event in the area, it will be crowded ;-) (one reason I like standing in the colonnades, for a quick getaway ;-) )...

Dom, and what hour was this Parade?

Re: New Year Parade in Rome

by domenicococozza

When we were there (some years ago now) the parade came through to the Piazza at about 2.00pm, but this may have changed.

Travel Tips for Rome

Mailing Postcards

by von.otter

“Felicior Augusto, melior Traiano” (“More fortunate than Augustus and better than Trajan”)
— the Senate’s prayer for any new emperor during the fourth century

Give your postcards a prayer of a chance. It has been said that postcards mailed through the Vatican Post Office reach their destination faster than those mailed through Rome’s postal system. This may be Italian urban legend. It cannot hurt to make a test!

While visiting Vatican City look for the yellow post boxes; some can be found within the gift shop of the Vatican Museums.

The post box in the accompanying photo is located outside the main entrance to St. Peter’s Basilica, on the left-hand side as you face the church; it, too, is outside a gift/book shop.

Dog's Rule in Rome

by deecat

In Rome, and all over Italy, dogs rule.

We seldom saw dogs on leashes as one does in the USA (most cities have an ordinance that animals must be on leashes).

The interesting part is that the dogs are quite well behaved. I never saw dogs on leashes; yet, they stayed near their owners. In some places where we were eating dinner (nice places), the local would bring his/her dog with. Each time I observed this, the dog would lie under the table and bother no one or no object.

It fascinated me and surprised me as well. Once again, because of city ordinances and health departments, dogs are not allowed in restaurants in the USA unless the dog is leading a blind person.

I would be interested in knowing how the dogs are trained to be so calm and obedient.

The Underground of Santa Cecilia Basilica

by abarbieri

It is located in Trastevere (Piazza di Santa Cecilia 22)
The first church of Santa Cecilia was founded probably in the 5th century, by Pope Urban I, and devoted to the Roman martyr Cecilia. Tradition holds that the church was built over the house of the saint. The baptistery of this church, together with the remains of a Roman Imperial house, was found during some excavations under the Chapel of the Relics. In the synod of 499 of Pope Symmachus, the church is indicated with the Titulus Ceciliae. On 22 November 545, Pope Vigilius was celebrating the saint in the church, when the emissary of Empress Theodora, Antemi Scribone, captured him.
Pope Paschal I rebuilt the church in 822, and moved here the relics of St Cecilia from the catacombs of St Calixtus. More restorations followed in the 18th century.
The Cardinal Priest of the Titulus S. Caeciliae is Carlo Maria Martini. Among the previous titulars are Pope Stephen III, Thomas Wolsey and Giuseppe Maria Doria Pamphili.
If possible try to visit the Cavallini Frescoes on the upper floor. They are available only Tuesday and Thursday from 10 to 11.30 and Sundy morning at 11.30 for about 30 minutes.

Train from the Airport to Stazione Termini

by american_tourister

There is a direct line train that goes from the airport to the central train station. From there you can get anywhere in Rome by bus or subway.

It costs about $7.00 one way and is worth every penny as taxis can cost $30.00 and up for a ride to central Rome.

Great Cafe Crema in the Ghetto

by Mmasarech about Caffe del Portico

This little coffee bar is up the road from Giggetto's. It serves the usual pizza and sweet snacks and coffee drinks. Really friendly staff, too. There's a twist however: you can get the "cafe crema" (made fresh daily) added to your cappucino. My friend insisted we go back so he could get more. Cafe crema for the cappucino, made fresh daily. A dollop is all you need.
