transportation to/from citavecchia

by mheidt

Our cruise ship leaves Citavecchia on May 9. We are thinking about going a few days early to visit rome and/or stay a couple of days in rome following cruise . How do we get from FCO airport to Citavecchia port and Citavecchia port to hotel near Via Veneto? What should I expecct to pay for 2 people? The cruise ship offers a transfer but seems rather expensive.

Cruising from Civitavecchia and you believe that the cruise ship transfers are expensive. Being from the USA, all things in Europe are expensive right now. Cheapest way to go is the train but then you have to carry your own luggage. If you don't like the prices that the cruise line offers for transfers then try a car and driver or limo service to see their prices and the service you get. There might even be a shuttle service that is less expensive, but personally I'll take a car and driver every time. Prices have changed so rapidly in the past few months that to get a good quote, you should check out the Rome car services. I like website: www.romalimo.com. See my Rome transportation tip on them at: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/736c8/23513/9/

The cheapest way is indeed by train, and is a very simple journey.

Direct train from Fiumicino (the 'Leonardo Express'), buy the ticket on the platform (11 euros one-way in March), trains every 30 minutes. Then get off at Termini station and buy the tickets for the Civitavecchia train from the many machines (all have English options, and are extremely easy to use). Platforms and departures are signed electronically, and announcements are given in english as well as Italian. Journey time from Termini to Civitavecchia is around 1 hour, roughly 2 trains per hour. One-way fare 8.50 euro.

www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html will give you times and fares in English.

Remember to valiate (date-stamp) your ticket using the yellow machines on the platform before you board the train (there is an on-the-spot 50 euro fine if you don't). This applies to all trains and buses in Italy (buses have the machines inside), and to the Metro.

You'll probably want to get a taxi from the station to the port, although there are buses.

All private transfers from Rome will be expensive, and I doubt the cruise offer will be much more expensive than anything you find on the web. It's really a matter of whether you are happy to make the train journey with your luggage, and that depends entirely on how much you are bringing.

As noted above, much of Europe is not a cheap destination for American travellers.

Travel Tips for Rome

The Spanish Steps

by bugalugs

The spanish steps are situated at the end of the Via Condotti. In the summer they are usually packed with people sitting on them people watching.

Standing facing the steps is the house which is now a Museum to Shelley and Keats and where they lived at one time.

There is information about Keats, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley and Lord Byrom in the museum.

Opening hours:

9am - 1pm - 2.30pm-5.30pm
Monday - Friday
Entrance fee is payable. Its not really my fonest memory, but it seems whenever I have visited Rome, I seem to spend time sitting on these steps putting sticking plasters (bandaid) on my sore feet!!! The last time in November 2000, it had rained and the steps were damp so I sat on a carrier bag to protect my rear end from getting wet!!! :-)
Just thought I would share that with you all -lol

Tourists Never Think Rome Is By The Sea

by OttoMarzo

Yeah, I know, usually metropolis by the sea don't have nice beaches and water is not that clean. Well, forget it all about Rome. Rome's seaside is wonderul and very romantic. You can easily reach the many seaside areas by subway or city trains.

Best beaches are between Ostia and Torvajanica: it's a long series of public beaches called CANCELLI (gates) just by a national park. Water is very clean, beaches are wide and huge, free and full of restaurants and snack bars. My favourite one is the last beach southward before Torvajanica: it's named Capocotta and its for naturists.

Most popular beaches are the private ones in Ostia, the easiests to reach by public transportation.

Good beaches in areas named Fiumicino, Fregene and Torvajanica too.

Romance under the sky

by suubi about nowhere

Depending on how much time you spend in Rome, you will either have a compact program to enable you see as much as you can and at the end of the day you will be a dead beat, or just tour a sight at ago which leaves you time to explore Rome for hours on end in the night. Any how you can always sit back and relish the romantic atmosphere on live music.

Keep it coming!

We visited this restaurant after reading a couple of VT reviews prior to our trip. The downstairs dining area is softly lit and quickly fills up. The waiters are friendly and speak English very well, although I did try to speak Italian when I could! The bruscetta were lovely, tomatoes and parmesan mmmm, and the pasta course very good too, so much of it I very nearly didn't have room for a main course. The Saltimbocca was just too good though. My partner had the Tripa alla romana - tripe in a tomato sauce, which he thoroughly enjoyed. It wasn't at all what he expected - it melted in the mouth. The house red wasn't the best wine I've ever had, but for 4 euros for a litre, it wasn't bad!
All in all, for a 4 course meal with wine for two people, the bill was under 50 euros. Very good value! Saltimbocca alla Romana - cooked to perfection!

Caput mundi - head of the world

by goodfish

Capitoline Hill is the highest of the fabled seven and was the pinnacle of ancient Rome's status as leader of the world. Most of the structures from that period have been destroyed or built over but Michelangelo's beautiful, 16th-century Piazza del Campidoglio and the Capitoline Museums (see next tip) are well worth a climb to the top. With the remodeling of some existing structures, a mathematically clever paving design and the addition of a staircase (Cordonata), the great painter, sculptor and architect changed the symbolic orientation of power away from the pagan ruins of the forum and towards St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican. Among other sites to visit on the hill are the ruins of ancient Roman apartments and Temple of Jupiter, church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli and the enormous, painfully bright Victor Emmanuel Monument.

Although you can get to the top more than one way, the Cordonata is on Via Del Teatro Di Marcello.
