Ash Wednesday in Rome

by mrsdeano

We are a group of 3 adults and one teen traveling to Rome and Italy Feb 13- 20, 2010. Ash Wednesday is Feb 17th. Is this a day when things are closed in Rome? Are things closed in Venice on this day? Would this be a good day to travel to Venice via the train?

Thanks for all your help. I've been happy with all the information I have found regarding restaurants and hotels (any suggestions appreciated!) but have not seen anything regarding Ash Wednesday.

THANKS

Ash Wednesday is not a public holiday and if this is when you arrive in Venice, the carnival (Sat 6 Feb till Tues 16 Feb) will have just finished.

No, Rome’s grand and glorious sights are not closed on Ash Wednesday, not even its churches, of which there are many. The main days for closure are New Year’s Day and Christmas Day. If you are a practicing Roman Catholic do your best to receive ashes in one of the Eternal City’s churches. The Church of Santa Susanna is the American church in Rome. For directions, location and hours here is its web site, http://www.santasusanna.org/

Also, keep in mind that many of Rome’s sights are out of doors, meaning that they can not close. For example, the Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo, is always open; it is a square (piazza) where the city hall is located. A visit to the two museums at the Campidoglio is a must. Two other squares that can not close are Piazza di Spangna (the Spanish Steps) and Piazza Navona (I love the Fountain of the Four Rivers at the center of the second).

Good luck and say hello to my favorite city on earth. Ciao!

The subway in Rome makes it easy to go to the major sites of the city such as the ones mentioned - Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Colosseium, Vatican, and the Pantheon.

The subway connects to the train station as well. Have you been to Florence. About 2 hours by train, it is a great city to walk, and see things such as the statue of David, the Ponte Vecchio, the Dome and Baptistry, Sante Croce, the Uffizi, and the Palazzo Vechhio to name a few. Rick Steve's book on Italy is worth getting (can get used one from 2008/2009 on Amazon for cheap as they do not change that much.

Will help nail down the major attractions, and offer some good travel tips.

Buona Fortuna! Buono Anno!

Travel Tips for Rome

Walk the city!

by Geisha_Girl

Walk the city! Rome has some of the most beautiful historical architecture in the world. Every corner, every turn there is a sight to be seen. My fondest memory of Rome was strolling the boulevards both day and night and watching how much the Italians enjoy their quality of life. Sure, the traffic in Rome can get hectic....but if you take time to stop and sip a cappuccino for a bit in an outdoor cafe, you can dig the local scene that surrounds you.

This little tyke seems to know exactly what I'm talking about!

Rome in Winter

by WheninRome

We each checked a large suitcase and had a carry on. One of our carry-on's was a backpack, which was extremely helpful to take with us while touring the City for a day. We were able to take maps, guidebooks, water and snacks with us in the backpack. It was winter so we had long pants and shirts. A Patagonia fleece of mine got a lot of wear. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking so I found hiking pants to be effective, especially since they have multiple pockets that zip up. They would probably also be good in summer since they are fairly lightweight.

We took too many dressy clothes. Other than the night at the opera, we did not dress up. Most others were not dressed up either.

Wear comfortable shoes as you will do a lot of walking and all on hard surfaces. We didn't wear the extra dress shoes that we brought. Just the standard stuff. Don't bring a travel hair dryer. My wife's kept tripping the breaker at the hotel and was useless. Digital camera.

Never on Sunday!

by Geisha_Girl

One can never get 'enough' shopping in Italy. Italy is a shopper's paradise! Always at the head of the fashion scene, you can surely find the swankiest looks along the streets of Piazza di Spagna. Once you climb past the crowds along the Spanish Steps, make your way through the alleys and cobblestone streets where you can find every Italian Designer shops lined up.

Keep in mind that these shops (as are most of the shops in Rome) are closed on Sundays. If you absolutely MUST burn a hole in your pocket on thy holy day, then head for the "Cinecitta Due" which is Rome's big mall. It's located near the famous "Cinecitta" area of Rome, which is home to the famous Italian cinema studios. (even during Fellini's heyday!) There are tons of shops and mallrats that hit the scene here. Ahhh....but no "Hot Dog on a Stick!" When in Rome......it's the leather, lace, and scented bath oils and lotions that I fancy. Oh and the shoes? Gotta have the shoes to go with the handbag and the watch and the jeans and............. A month's salary would be sufficient!

Romapass - public transit AND museums

by mccalpin

There are now 2 passes in the area of Rome that combine transportation with museum discounts!

The Roma Pass is a combination 3 day public transit ticket and a museum pass to many (but not all) museums in the city of Rome.

The Roma&Più Pass ['Rome and more'] is a combination 3 day public transit ticket and a museum pass to many (but not all) museums in the province of Rome. That is, the Roma&Più Pass not only include the benefits of the Roma Pass, also has the ability to use certain Cotral buses which run in the province of Rome outside the city of Rome, as well as giving discounts to certain museums out in the province.

For example, the Roma&Più Pass gives you access to the Villa D'Este and Hadrian's Villa ("Villa Adriana"), which are outside the city, but well within the province (they are near Tivoli).

The Roma Pass is 20 euro.
The Roma&Più Pass is 25 euro.

Please see http://www.romapass.it/english/cosa.html for more information on both passes.

Above average, near the Trevi

by Paisleypaul about TABERNA Patricii et Plebei

Between the Trevi and the Albert pub, there are two desks outside awash with flyers. Very agreeable little taberna with Eu20 and Eu22 tourist menus of pasta, meat dish, salad, 1/4 wine 1/4 water and ice cream per person. Eu10 for pizza beer and ice cream Both roast veal and chicken cutlet were nice and the salad fresh.

Great decor inside where I have pictured the ceiling - they have made an effort !
