Olympic stadium wheelchair access

by midgetanj

Does anyone know if it is possible to get from the city center to the olympic stadium by public transport with wheelchair access?

Re: Olympic stadium wheelchair access

by mccalpin

The answer is "maybe".

The ATAC (public transit system) website page on person with disabilities is at http://www.atac.roma.it/index.asp?p=109
but is only in Italian.

There is a on-demand service, but it is only for people who are studying, working, or going to rehab - it doesn't look like it's available for tourism.

Elsewhere, it says that more than 70% of the buses are equipped with a movable platform for wheelchair use (the lift, I assume), and a place to anchor the chairs. However, not knowing where you are starting from in the city center, I don't think I'll be able to find out if YOUR bus would have such support (and could easily change from day-to-day anyway). But if you know, let me know, and I'll look up the route...

I guess you've done other web searching, but this page -
http://www.initaly.com/travel/handicap.htm
looked helpful, in that it gives you some links. In the case of the Italian website
http://www.disabili.com/
you can email them at mobilita@disabiliforum.com
and see if they can help, even in English (the odds are good that someone there speaks it well enough, especially for a specific question like yours).

Otherwise, a taxi with a knowledgeable driver may be the best bet. Note that taxis in Rome are not as expensive as other major European cities. Also note that the Olympic Stadium, while in the city, is not in the city center, and I wouldn't know how close the nearest taxi queue is (in Rome, taxis don't roam the streets (so to speak), but are found in taxi queues around town)...you may want to arrange with the driver to come back for you in an hour or so...

Travel Tips for Rome

Store your bags

by gilabrand

If you need to leave your bags somewhere in Rome, Termini train station has a left luggage facility (ritiro bagagli). The opening hours are 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. and it costs 3.80 Euro for the first 5 hours. For 6 hours or more, it costs 60 cents an hour. From the 13th hour, the price goes down to 20 cents an hour. You can leave a maximum of 20 kilos.

Finding the office is not so simple. Termini is a gigantic mall, very airport-like, with a zillion corridors, escalators and departure gates. The left luggage office is tucked way back in the innards of the building and involves quite a bit of walking (and asking for directions). I would use this option only if there were no other solution, as it seemed quite a hassle to me - unless you are traveling by train, of course, and stopping at Termini in any case.

In the Morning it's COFFEE

by Escadora7

For breakfast, Italians usually drink coffee - normally a cappuccino. Afternoons and evenings usually Espresso. Following is a guide to coffee:

UN ESPRESSO - strong, black coffee in small cups
UN DOPPIA - double espresso
UN LUNGO - espresso with a bit more water
UN MACCHIATO - espresso with milk
UN CAFFE CORRETTO - espresso with a shot of Whisky
UN CAPPUCCINO - espresso with foamed milk
UN CAFFE LATTE - espresso with lots of milk, no foam
UN AMERICANO - espresso with lots of hot water
UN CAFFE HAG - coffeinfree
UN CAFFE FREDDO - iced coffee, pre-sweetened. If you want it without sugar, ask for UN AMARO'
UN CAPPUCCINO FREDDO - iced milk-coffee

Cheers caffeine guzzler!! ;)

Basilica St John Lateran

by sandysmith

Off the beaten track due its distance from the main centre of Rome's attactions but the Basilica St John Lateran is one of the four major basilicas of Rome and was named "mother of all the churches" because it is the Cathedral of Rome. Guess really it should be a "must see" too. The main facade consists of a two-storey portico surmounted by an attic with 15 colossal statues of Christ with the Apostles and saints. On Maundy Thursday the pope gives his benediction from the central loggia.

The Metro is a great way to travel

by stressball

The metro is definitely the best way to get around Rome. Of course, there are buses, but they may take you a couple of days to figure out.

The metro in Rome is very easy to navigate and will get you to, or close to, the major attractions.

Enoteche (wine bars)

by trilbi

Wine bars, also called enoteche even if the term refers to wine shops, are great places where to have a light lunch or dinner with a glass of wine (or a bottle, that is up to you). The food quality is usually good, with plates of assorted cheeses or insaccati (cold cuts), salads, quiches and cakes. Often they only have coffee made with "moka" so you are better off going some place else.
Cul de Sac the first of this kind to open in the seventies, has a choice of more than 700 wines, by the glass or the bottle, plates of cheese or salami, quiches of different kind, home made paté with crostini, some hot dish and soup.
Piazza Pasquino 73, tel. 06 68801094 near Piazza Navona, closed on mondays for lunch.
Cavour 313 an historical place with a good selection of wines, plates of cheese or insaccati from different regions of Italy, salads and some hot dish according to the season. Go early (8 pm) to find a table.
Via Cavour, 313, tel. 06 6785496 near Termini train station and the Coliseum.
Trimani wine bar, excellent selection of wines also by the glass, and a full menu with good dishes that change quite often. They also do happy hour until 7.30 pm. The owner is the same of the wine shop around the corner that is one of the best for quality in Rome (look at the beautiful old marble bench).
Via Cernaia, 37b, tel. 06 4469630 near Termini train station, closed on sundays, more expensive than average but worth it.
Bottega del vino da Anacleto Bleve, it is considered by many the best wine bar in Rome. The choice of cheese and insaccati includes some rarities that are selected by Anacleto around Italy. They also have smoked fish and some hot dishes. This is also the place where to buy excellent rhum and whisky personally chosen from the barrel by the owner (very, very expensive). It's now open only for lunch until 4.30 pm but you have to book two days in advance.
Via Santa Maria del Pianto, 9a, tel. 06 6865970 in the Jewish ghetto area near Piazza Argentina, expensive.
