Law & Order

by MSen

I would like to know what is the current law & order situation in Rome. Apart from the usual precautions, do we need to be careful of any particular menace.
We are senior citizens. Hence any suggestion will be welcome. Is there any area which we should avoid.

Re: Law & Order

by SunTanBob

One thing that needs mentioning is mind your wallet, purses, etc., particularly on the Metro. We encountered a group of senior citizens who in one day using the Metro caught a pickpocket with their hand in one of the women's purses and got one wallet lifted. The purse/hand incident occured while I was conversing with the woman and neither of us noticed so they are very good but it was obvious to us the pickpockets view senior citizens as a target.

That being said going into it with this awareness a money belt or some other means of keeping your valuables concealed/protected is a good way to avoid this problem.

Beware of pickpockets in crowded tourist filled areas, and on a busy trains. Am told that they have been known to listen for foreign tourists in a train, then performing their oh so well practised removal of wallet,etc. Near the major tourist sites you may see men dressed as gladiators, happy for you to take a photo of them standing next to you. Even if it is your camera that is used they will then very much expect to be paid.

At night, avoid the immediate area around Termini Station and streets to the North West of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Hi Just be as careful as you would in any large city, do not wear expensive jewellery in public , hang onto your purse or handbag and keep it closed, and lock passport and other important travel documentation in your hotel safe.

We had no problems when we visited 2 years ago, I never used my Visa card outside our hotel, left it in the safe.

Good Luck,
Mike

Travel Tips for Rome

The 8th king of Rome

by Tunda_F

Francesco Totti,to the century "er Capitano de' sti lupacchiotti".Every city lives his own idol,his own characters.It happens that some are known only in the street they live,some others are a bit more known,but no much of them can be considered like king,better Gods.This is Totti:not much knowledge of the italian grammar,but so much fantasy and class in the feet.In Italy there are thousands of jokes on Him,untranslatable in english because they are on the problems he've got in talking in a correct italian without using the "roman dialect"...anyway if you buy the books of these jokes the money will all go in benefit,from an idea of Himself...here you can see a pic of him I took in a big concert for the children:Totti for children.

The Last Pyramid in Rome, and you can go INSIDE!

by Lacristina

Who knew you could take a guided tour of the INSIDE of the Pyramid ?

VT friend Antonio Barbieri did!

We agreed to meet in front of the huge (36 meters) pyramid 15 minutes before the scheduled Saturday morning tour. Most guide books say you can’t visit the inside – but you can when the twice monthly tour is given.

To check for the next tour when you’re in town, buy the publication “Roma C’è” at newsstands. Unfortunately, the listings are mostly in Italian – so ask your hotel to make a reservation for you. The tour of the Pyramid was given only in Italian, but interestingly enough, 2/3rds of the visitors in our group were not native speakers of Italian. The tour guide kindly spoke very slowly for us!

After the Roman conquest of Egypt, in 30BC during the reign of Augustus, tourism boomed. Rich Roman tourists were so impressed with the pyramids as burial monuments, several were built in Rome, but only this one survives. It was built, according to the Latin inscription on this marble-clad tomb, in just 330 days. Not much is known about Cestius, but the inscription says he was a praetor (magistrate).

Entrance to the burial chamber requires stooping a bit through a low door and tunnel. Like its much larger Egyptian cousins, this pyramid was broken into and robbed. The chamber is about 6 meters by 4 meters by 5 meters high. While most of the decorative fresco medallions on the white walls have been stolen (literally chiseled out of the wall) there are enough left that you can imagine the original design.

The pyramid was incorporated in the Aurelian Wall, around 271 A.D. The Pyramid is also home to one of Rome’s cat sanctuaries, like the one at Largo Argentina, but smaller.

The Pyramid of Caius Cestius (Pyramide Cestia, pronounced "peer RAH mee day CHESS tee ah) is easy to find, just a little outside of the center of Rome, south of the Aventine Hill, at the Porta Ostiense, also called the Porta San Paulo.

Don't drive!

by anne_h

You want to avoid driving around Rome at all costs. I did it once when we picked up our rental car and it took about 10 years off my life. The Metro system is kind of limited (only two lines), but there are lots of buses, if you can figure out where they're going. If you are polite and can speak a little Italian, people are usually happy to help you figure it out.

Make sure you have a ticket, though, and when you validate it in the machines, check that the date is actually printed on there. Once I validated a ticket and the machine must have been broken, because when some inspectors checked my ticket, nothing was on it! Luckily they believed me and let me go. However, I suspect this may have been because I am a relatively young woman. Others may not be so lucky.

In the rear parlor there is a piano.They said that Rossini use to play with ...Anyway please visit this beautiful cafe and you can enjoy any cafe that you like you can even try the tortas...

Colossal Colliseum

by GK2005

The first thing that would strike you about the Colisseum is the size of it. In the pictures, it looks reasonably big, but you feel the grandeur of it as your walk out of the Colloseo Metro Train Stop and come face to face with it. Inside the colisseum there are two tiers. When you walk around the upper tier, you could see how big and captivating it is. To enjoy the full spectacle of Colliseum, walk around slowly stopping every few yards and take in the brilliance of the architecture of yesteryears.

Colliseum is very well served by Rome's public transportation (Stop : Colloseo on Blue Line...Line B). The Blue Line runs from Rebibbia to Laurentina.
