Via banchi vecchi and surrounds

by happytotravel

What are the closest markets and/or supermarkets to Via Banchi Vecchi. What would be the walking distance to them. How long would it take to walk to Piazza Navona from this street? Thanks anyone that can help with these questions.

You are very close to Piazza Navona - I can't imagine it would take more than 10 minutes tops to walk it.

You are also close to Campo dei Fiori, a wonderful outdoor market just a few minute's walk away.

Thank -you...when looking at the map Navona and Campo loked quite far away...but not having been to Rome I have noooo idea! I am really glad that these places are close to where we are staying.

Here's a list of alimentaris (markets) in that area:

Via del Pellegrino 116, tel: 0668802121;
Via del Pellegrino 53, tel: 066871125;
Via Banchi Vecchi 141, tel: 066875963;
Piazza del Fico 25, tel: 0668802910.

It looks like the one on Via Branci Vecchi is just steps away. You could call just to make sure it's still there but I'm reading from people who've stayed in apartments in the area that there are markets close by so you should be fine.

No, you are staying in a lovely area with much close by. Central Rome (the central storico) is not nearly as large as it looks. We were staying up in the Prati area - about a 15 minute walk from San Pietro - and walked all the way down to where you are in a little over an hour. Do walk whenever possible as part of the charm of this old city is exploring the tiny little back streets and alleys - much more peaceful than some of the main boulevards, and there's some wonderful architecture! You just can't get the real feel of Rome from a taxi or metro...

Have you tried Google Maps yet ? They give some sharp detailed maps and also STREET VIEWS of your particular street so just put in the full address and you could open the Street View and see what it is like !!
I have stayed just a little further along from Via Banch Vecchi in Via del Pellegrino and can mention that there is a nice compact supermarket (I think it was DESPAR supermarket which is in the area where all the roads converge between your street and Via Pellegrino. Has most everything.

By the way, there is a useful mini electric bus No 116 that passes nearby at a stop near the river (bridge Ponte Giuseppe Manzini) and it is worth while studying the bus routes in advance so that you know your options. But you will find it a very walk able city so wear comfortable shoes !

Travel Tips for Rome

Week of Culture - museums for free

by Frisbeeace

I had the big luck of visiting Rome during the Week of Culture (May 5th to May 12th) in which all museums and monuments in Italy have free entrance. Not only this means huge savings but you can also visit many secondary places that normally would be left aside because they may not worth the money for just a quick visit. I was afraid to face long lines but it didn't happen at all. If you plan a visit next year try to catch this week which also overlapped with the Rome Tennis Open.

Roman numerals

by Jenniflower

I think the combined passions of being an artist (so loving different fonts), plus enjoying Latin, so learning about the history of the people of the time, is why I am fascinated by Roman numerals.

Arial and san serif fonts are far more used today, more moderna nd contemporary... but I still like Times New Roman (please not the name haha), and Garamond... two truetype fonts that are under rated in my view.

Yes, their serifs arnet popular anymore, but they are still classical and elegant and I try and incorporate them into my work where I can.

In publishing, not so much, but in my fine art work.

You find Roman numerals and lettering all over Rome. Beautiful! :)

Sunday Market

by uglyscot about Trastevere

An open market where almost anything can be bought at reasonable prices. The stalls seem to stretch forever. shoes are very reasonable, as are leather goods.
blankets were being sold in large numbers. prices much lower than in regular shops

and around Rome

by Malecka

Subway or Metro!!! (I think I know all the subway stations by now) :-)
Strangely enough, there are only two lines, though this has a lot to do with the impossibility to dig a lot under the surface of the city, but even with lines A and B, it is manageable to move around. Their crossing point is Termini station, a CHAOS of its own kind where it is advisably to be careful with the personal belongings.

Depending on the duration of your stay, I'd suggest buying a weekly ticket. It costs 16 euros and you can move around for one week, as much as you want. Really practical.

Also the buses. In case you go out and you end up partying too long - no worries, cause there are night buses all the time. Just make sure you see the night schedule. Taxi is also an option, if you don't feel like waiting. More expensive but then again the amount can be shared among three or four friends.

Home-made food near Vatican

by sikorka about Trattoria ai Villini

In Prati district, the area right close to Vatican, there is one of my favorite restaurants (trattoria) called "TRATTORIA AI VILLINI". It's located right off Via Cola di Rienzo (famous shopping street) and you can be sure that there will be more locals than tourists. Actually, I often go there on Sundays during lunch and I've never seen any tourists.
The food is very good and it's home-made. The trattoria is run by family and it's a typical Italian place: nothing fancy, but with tasty food.
Enjoy!!!

IT'S CLOSED ON SUNDAY EVENING AND ALSO ONE OTHER DAY I DON'T REMEMBER My favorite dish is: Scaloppine al vino 8Euro and carcioffo 4 Euro
Prices for 2: with 1/2 liter of wine, a bottel of water and coffee is about 40Euro
