Rome is a concentrate of art, history and culture.... so the number and variety of museums, galleries, palaces and exhibitions, is huge !!
I'll try to put more details about them in the "must see" section... if there is enough room for everything !!! hehe...
A Day on the Beach
Though Rome is usually not associated with beach holidays, it is well worth remembering that Ostia just outside the city does have some very nice clean beaches that are worth visiting for a day especially during the hot summer months.
In order to get there you will need to go Ostia Lido with the COTRAL rail train. The last three stops (Stella Polare, Castel Fusano and C. Colombo) all lead directly to the beach. You can get beach chairs against a small fee. The beaches are clean and very well kept and maintained.
Once on the way to Ostia Lido, you may also decide to pay the ruins at Ostia Antica a visit. Just remember that these are not accessible on Mondays and that you will need a good while to actually see them all, so your beach trip may be cut short. Just a question of getting your priorities right.
You will never need to rent a car while touring Rome. I have no idea why anyone would even want to try it.
Arriving at Fiumicino airport (FCO), there are several trains that make the journey to Termini Station, which is the transportation hub of central Rome. Be sure you validate your ticket before entering the train. There is a little machine right there on the platform that can stamp it.
In Rome, you have trains, subways, busses, and your own two feet to get you to where you want to go. Watch the traffic, because it is rapid, and space can sometimes get a little narrow. Bring a good map with you that highlights bus and train routes.
Authetic Italian with Oranges
The name means little orange and lots of the dishes had an orange flavour or theme.
It is situated between the Quirinal and Fontana di Trevi and I stumbled upon it one night when I was quite hungry.
The food was good and so was the service. The fried zucchini flower were tasty and different.
I had the roasted pork and my friend had the quail (I think) in orange sauce. Both were lovely - well prepared and tasty.
Piazza Navona is another typical Roman Piazza, surrounded by nice buildings, Restaurants, shops and Cafe's while attracting Tourists with its Bernini fountains and very good oil painters who can paint Piazza Navona so perfect for anyone to take home and live Piazza Navona everytime they look at the painting.
