Travel Tips for Rome

Go early

by Gloke

When you go to visit Vatican City be sure to go there early. We went at around 9:30 and didn't have to wait that long to get in. We went up the cathedral and when we came down there was a huge waiting line, it was around 11:00 then. We didn't go to the Vatican museum as there were people waiting there for hours and hours.
So go early then you can avoid hours waiting in line.

Are the "statues" pickpockets, some in Rome are

by croisbeauty

We usually stand in front of the statues admiring their beauty and skill of the sculptors who made them. Rome is rich of magnificent statues which can be found all over the town, in particularly on many of its numerous squares. Some locals, however, who are acting "statues" from the past ancient times of Rome, use them in order to sack naive tourists, attracted by chance to make immemorable snapshot for family album.
The good advise is; put your money or purse in a safe place before getting together with such a group of, allow me to say, professional plunderers.

Villa Torlonia - Mussolini's home - a dark history

by icunme

Begun by Giuseppe Valadier in 1802, this was the home of Mussolini in the twenties. It became a part of the public park system in 1978. It deteriorated extensively due to vandalism.
In the second half of the XVIIIth century Giovanni Raimondo Torlonia, son of a French merchant, founded his bank, and became one of the wealthiest Roman families. Riches brought nobility and the need for appropriate villas and adornments. In 1802 they commissioned Luigi Valadier. Numerous structures emerged including a Swiss Chalet that was to become a medievel building and the Tempio Saturno. Numerous works of classic art, in great part scultoree, were acquired in order to furnish the Villa. One small part of these is still visible inside of the Museum of the Casino of the Principles (the main Villa structure). Painstaking restoration is underway in the interior.

When I was there today (July 26, 2006) the entire property showed the renovation and restoration efforts in progress. Now beautifully restored (May 2007) the building holds period sculpture, furnishings, and paintings as well as an anti air-gas shelter and an anti air-raid bunker!

"Limonata" is a quaint cafè found in the park, 20 meters from the Villa.

Photo 2 - In 1842 Prince Alessandro Torlonia embellished the gardens with two brand new obelisks, cut in a marble quarry near Lago Maggiore in northern Italy and brought to Rome by ship, in a sort of repetition of the transportation of the Egyptian obelisks carried by the Roman emperors.
Photo 3 - Another structure being rennovated on the grounds.
Photo 4 - Remains of the original Tempio Saturno.
Phtoo 5 - View from main Villa Torlonia toward street.

Beneath the park there are Jewish catacombs, made up of two cemeteries dating back to the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The walls are decorated with ornate Hebraic paintings and symbols.

Location: via Nomentana 70, via Siracusa, via L.Spallanzani

CHEAP FLIGHT

by gugi66

The cheapest way to fly to Roma is with Ryanair, they also fly nonstop, small airplanes but whit out a doubt the fastest.

Buy a -Priority Boarding ticket:

Passengers who have purchased the service will be given a Priority Boarding Pass when they check-in at the airport and this pass should be presented at the departure gate.

To receive Priority Boarding, passengers need to be at the departure gate at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure.

"Basta, basta, I'm stuffed!!"

by acemj about Hostaria Isidoro

The meal I had here is one of the top 10 meals of my life!!! It's nothing fancy, but it was surely memorable. A group of us from the hostel decided to take the advice of the owners of our hostel and try it out. It's not too far from the Colosseum although it's a bit tricky to find if you've had one too many limoncellos. Inside, you'll find a very welcoming family atmosphere and most of the people eating here seemed to be in large parties all seated at long tables and conversing loudly and happily. We had 8 people from the hostel and had an amazing time. Trust me. Just look at the waiter and say, "assaggini." This means that you are ordering the house special which is an endless stream of pasta, pasta and more pasta. I was amazed at the variety of pastas that kept coming one after the other. Our table had already sampled various Italian alcoholic treats at the hostel before arriving so we were particularly joyous each time the waiter brought the next dish. We greeted him with "hip, hip hoorays" and I'm sure he thought we were nuts! Make sure you're hungry. Also, order the house red and keep it coming. It was a young and delicious wine the night we were there.

Sorry, I don't remember the price, but it was probably around 25-35 Euros per person.
