Visitng Assisi

by maria25

We will be visiting Rome this month for four days and we would like to visit Assisi for a day.

Can some one indicate which means of public transport is easier if by train or by bus?

Thanks alot

There are a number of rail solutions a day from Rome to Assisi. Not many are direct, but the solutions with change of train aren't much slower but may be more expensive. Look at www.trenitalia.com (English at the top) and practice with the website. Note that you shouldn't enter dates more than 2 months out; the database tends not to be loaded yet. Choose a day of the week in the next week that is the same day you want to travel - the answers you get are likely to be very similar to what you will find when you get there, as schedules don't change all that much over the Rome.

As for buses, the website www.italybus.it reports that there are two bus companies that make this trip: SULGA (www.sulga.it) and BUCCI (http://www.autolineebucci.com/)...like most bus companies, the website is only in Italian..

HOWEVER, the SULGA website is under construction and has no information, while the BUCCI website has no information about a Rome to Assisi bus, but points you to a different company - www.adriabus.eu - which is a company that runs buses on the east side of Italy - not much good for you.

Note that if you take the train, the train station is well outside of Assisi, and you will need to take a city bus to the upper city (this won't be hard, as the city buses are likely time with train arrivals), so another 20(?) minutes.

Between train and bus I should suggest you TRAIN (but consider Bill's notice about train station: it is about 4km far from Assisi Sanctuary).

I should hire a car for a day...

If you take the train, before or after visiting the city of Assisi, you should also visit the church Santa Maria degli Angeli. It is only approx. 300 m away from the train station (turn left/north and then left at the main street). This church was constructed around/on top of the first little church of San Francesco, called Porziuncola. You can't miss the church, it is huge and its golden angel on top is widely seen from almost everywhere.

Travel Tips for Rome

A Traveler in Rome by H.V.Morton

by skywalkerbeth

You simply must buy this book before or after your trip. It is the most enjoyable read and there is not one superfluous sentence in its entire 400+ pages. The author has such a breadth and depth of knowledge, I was even fascinated wondering how he must have crafted the book!

I know this doesn't match the title of the tip, but VT doesn't give a category for general tips about preparation, etc. I may end up moving this!

If you eat lunch at a sidewalk trattoria, chances are you'll be serenaded by street musicians playing all sorts of odd looking instruments.

This guy auditioned for American Idol but sadly, did not make the final 24.

Fun at Porta Portese Flea Market

by Donna_in_India

We were up very early to go to Porta Portese flea market, the biggest and most popular flea market in Rome. It was so much fun. It was a huge maze of stalls – a lot of new clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, etc. But there were also so many stalls of antique stuff and even just some junk! We happily made a few purchases. Just outside the market we found a bakery and bought several kinds of Italian pastries to try - from cannolis to crème & liquor filled horns.

The market is about 10-15 walk from the bus stop. Market open early Sunday morning to about 1 p.m.

First a good message: This is...

by globetrott

First a good message: This is the ONLY accident I saw, while in Rome - and it was part of a movie, playing in the center of Rome.

But I saw plenty of 'almost accidents', drivers do not care at all for trafic-lights, lots of scooter-drivers waiting on the zebra-crossing for the green light to come, not caring at all about pedestrians, who have to step around them.

I once had a car coming against me ON the Zebra-crossing, as he could get a parking lot that way before anotherone got it...

Cars park at any possible place, including Zebra-crossings, end of sidewalks... and nobody cares, how wheelchairs or elderly persons could cross the streets.

And the Police absolutely does not care about it !

The trendy place of 2006!

by gmg61 about Al Ristoro degli Angeli

This is the new trendy place of Rome, located a bit out of the centre, in an area that was once a popular suburb and now hosts architects and other professionals.

Very nice ambience, with old furniture, tables in real wood, and a nice modern traditional cuisine.

You'll be welcomed by the lady with the green hair and enjoy a nice meal with good wines aside, and please don't miss the roast potatoes, made in traditional style

Desserts are also good Patate della Garbatella (come le faceva la mamma di Enzo) (roast potatoes)
