rent a kayak in Rome

by tamino749

I enjoy my daily commune with the local urban scene paddling about my own river town of Saint Paul, Minnesota. There can be something magical about the reflection of the city on water. I was wondering about possiblities of doing this in Rome: 1) Are there dangers one should know about? 2) Where would one rent a boat? One would need a place that could offer some transport to and from the water. - I usually go upstream for a few miles and then turn back on the local river so I am not anticipating the need to coordinate a take out point. This is a not a project that I would be willing to spend more than a half of a day on as it is a bit of a whim and a fancy. And I strongly suspect it is impractical. Time in Rome is precious. Any insights that someone could afford would be welcome.

I'm sure there must be something in Rome - but I can give you this link for Lake Bracciano which is a lovely get-away not far north of Rome - few tourists (at least there were until Tom Cruise decided to get married there). This looks like serious kayak site.

From the website:http://www.seakayakitaly.com/braccianoeng.htm
Lake Bracciano, few kilometres away from Rome is a refuge of tranquillity. Its waters, crystal clear clean, where one can only navigate by sail or oars are an ideal surrounding to learn the techniques of the sea kayak.

It is years now that Sea Kayak Italy has chosen Trevignano Romano, heart of the “Parco Regionale Naturale, as its base for its kayak centre.

when we took the local ferry from Ponte Garibaldi up to the stadium past the vatican - cost about 3 euros took about 40 minutes - i saw plenty of boat sheds by the river side and lots of people kayaking

check with one of the many green tourist info kiosks dotted about - i found them very useful

It is likely that the Bracciano kayak center will know where you could rent in Rome. Jen is right - lots of kayakers in view on the Tiber.

Try the Isola Tiberina area for kayak rentals along the banks of the Tiber River. I saw racks of kayaks, but do not know if for rental or just for a Canoa Club. Check out the Canoa Kayak Roma Assex for information.

If you get to Florence, they rent kayaks right under the Uffizi Gallery on the river. You can watch them from the Ponte Vecchio. It looked like tremendous fun.

Travel Tips for Rome

by rachel_sun

The trevi fountain is quite a recent creation to Rome.It was completed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi.It is Romes largest and most famous fountain.It is a must see,but it will be very busy.Be sure to toss a coin over your shoulder to make sure u will return one day to Rome.You will see 100's of people doing this and it looks quite funny.The staues here are very beautiful and there has been so much work gone into this beautiful fountain.

Caravaggio Masterpieces in San Luigi dei Francesi

by Lacristina

Even if you have no interest in art, even if you’ve never heard of Caravaggio, pay a visit to this church and the famous Contarelli Chapel (the first chapel on the left closest to the altar). If you’re near Piazza Navona, you’re less than 5 minutes away. Bring some coins with you to turn on the timed lights for the chapel.

The photo is of one of the three famous Caravaggio masterpieces – paintings on the life of St. Matthew, which marked a turning point in his career. This is the “Calling of St. Matthew” and shows the masterful technique for which Caravaggio is so famous – the use of light and dark – which so many followers imitated. Note the dark void between Christ (with the halo) and St. Peter, and Matthew the tax collector and his colleagues. And see how the dramatically lit hand of Christ visually and metaphorically crosses the void as he calls Matthew, and Matthew seems to say, “Who, me?”

The earliest of the three paintings is the one on the right, “The Martyrdom of St. Matthew”. The last was the altar piece "The Inspiration of St. Matthew." Matthew, one of the four gospel writers, as was customary, is pictured with an angel, just as Luke is usually pictured with an ox, John with an Eagle and Mark with a lion.

See this website for better reproductions of these and other works of Caravaggio.

Near the chapel, the church has placed a small display and explanation of the paintings in French, Italian and English.

The church (facade designed by Giacomo della Porta) is dedicated to St. Louis IX, king and patron saint of France, who lead the crusades. But the facade isn't stylistically representative of della Porta. It is relatively austere and static compared to Il Gesu'. One of my knowledgeable friends wonders if the French commission required something more sedate.

Address: 5 Piazza San Luigi dei Francesi / Via Santa Giovanna d'Arco. Between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona.

Hours: 8:00 a.m. to noon - 3:30 to 7:00 p.m.

From the airport to Termini Station

by vikendall

Upon arrival, if you are coming in on an Internatonal flight, you should be on the third level of the Terminal. Proceed to the first level. By pass all the cabbies and limos (unless that is what you want), and go out the front door. If you look to your immediate right, you will see a covered train station. For approximately 5 euros you can buy a tix on the Leonardo Express which will take you to Termini Station (in the heart of Rome). This is much cheaper than the 40 euros charged by the cabbies.

Beautiful Cafe near Quirinale

by magyarozag about Anonamous Cafe

Beautiful little Italian building which inside serves Ice Creams and pastries and is also a small bar. Outside,Downstairs or bar seating. The Ice creams are immense and the bottled water is the cheapest I came across whilst in Rome.

There are the stairscase with the statue of the Dioscuri and the Palazzo Senatorio.
