mini bus

by unrich

Is it covered by the Roma Pass?

Re: mini bus

by craic

which mini bus is this?

Re: mini bus

by gilabrand

The Biglietto Turistico Integrato (BTI) is a three-day tourist ticket that costs €11 and is good for all forms of public transportation, including mini buses. We used ours endlessly, and it was definitely worthwhile. I don't know about the Roma Pass.

Re: mini bus

If you're talking about the bus that you can see at http://www.orenstransitpage.com/otpitalypics/romebustecnobus.htm
then I believe the answer is "yes" as these are operated by ATAC, although the ATAC website says absolutely nothing about them. Jen, these are "half sized" buses that run only on electricity, and are used in the city center. (also see the nice collection of photos of all the public transit vehicles at http://www.orenstransitpage.com/otpitalypics/romehome.htm )

Gila, are these the minibuses you rode on, and are they different in any way from regular city buses (except for the size)?

There are also a number of private companies who do tours with minibuses; these, of course, are not covered by a pass.

The BTI that Gila refers to is actually part of the Romapass, so whatever the BTI covers, so does the Romapass...

I have to admit that I have never seen these myself...

We rode mini-buses in downtown Rome - they are not electric, just small buses, kind of like vans.

Re: mini bus

by gilabrand

They operated like ordinary city buses, and were not specially for tourists.

Re: mini bus

Did they look like the buses in the link I gave? Especially with that orange coloration? it looks like they're now electric...according that that website...

I looked at the photos and I think the answer is yes! That's them! Somehow I didn't remember anything about them being orange...

Travel Tips for Rome

Shutter Bug!!!

by squeak_tj97

Rome is an extremely photographic city. Make sure you bring extra everything for your camera (batteries, film). I had a digital camera and one of my cards started getting errors. Luckily I packed an extra one. We did lots of self portraits. Sure, one could use the timer, but be crazy and do it yourself. Just hold out the camera and aim.

Aiuto! Quell'Uomo Mi Sta Seguendo...!

by Krystynn

Ladies, if you don't know Italian, nevermind. But at least learn some important words like: "Aiuto! Quell'uomo mi sta seguendo...!"

Translated into good old English, it means "Help! That man is following me...!"

Sometimes, you might even need to tell them: "Non mi toccare!" which means "Don't touch me!"

Not to worry... Italian men are generally extremely well behaved and are fine gentlemen. This is for the rare few who get very enthralled with foreign women and female tourists.

So, Ladies, as you're walking along the streets or piazzas, don't be surprised if you're being tailed or whistled at; OR pursued by squadrons of Vespa-riders. Just take comfort in the fact that Italian men are not known as 'Romeos' for nothing. In short, continue to act cool, ignore them and simply carry on walking! :-)

If you're being propositioned by a hot Italian hunk looking like Raoul Bova, I'm sure you would like to know what they mean. So, remember these words:

"Vuoi uscire insieme?"
Feel free to slap 'em (joking!)... or say 'Si, per favore!"
Ladies, that hot Italian guy has in fact just asked you out on a date. ;-)

"Vuoi cenare con me?"
He's just asked you to have dinner with him. :-) Feel free to reject or say '"Si" (read: Yes) to him.

If you're not interested in being picked up by any guys, gals or apes - simply ignore them and they'll go away soon enough. OR you can duck for cover inside the nearest bar!

If you do really get into trouble and need to call the Roman Police, just remember these phone numbers: 113.

A Street of Antiques

by sue_stone about Via dei Coronari

Via dei Coronari is a narrow pedestrianised street located close to Piazza Navona.

Both side of the street are lined with antique stores and galleries.

When we were there in October, we happened across the antique fair that is held here twice a year (in Oct & May).

The street (which is about 500 metres long) was lined with a green carpet and as the sun set, torches mounted up high on the walls were lit outside each shop, making for a very interesting wander and window shop.

Twice a year, mid-end of October and mid-end of May, an antique fair is held in this street which become full of lights with the shops opened during the whole day. Antiques of course! And art.

We didn't buy anything....not that into antiques...and no room in the suitcase!! E.x.p.e.n.s.i.v.e.

Maps from public transit system website

by mccalpin

If you want maps of Rome's public transportation system, go to http://www.atac.roma.it/linee/index.asp?i=6&p=1 .
"Roma citta" is the city of Rome.
"Roma centro" is the city center.
"Metro e ferrovie regionali" is the Metro and local trains.
"Rete tranvaria" is the tram network.
"Linee notturne" are the lines running at night.
"Linee di Ostia" are the lines either to or in Ostia (I haven't looked)
"Linee periferiche" are lines outside the city center
"Linee elettriche" are electric bus lines

Note that each of these downloads are zip files that contain one pdf file - the one you want...so you have to have an unzip product and Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them...

A century of beer!

by AlexDJ about Antica Birreria Peroni

Since one hundred years Romans and tourists here have been meeting, eating, drinking and having fun all together! This place is not exactly a pub, because you can have a full dinner in a wide choise of local traditional specialities watered with premium quality beer!
The spot is always packed but don't worry, you just could wait for a while before sitting! Try veal cutlets, prepared according to the Roman tradition and pork steak, even garnished of beans " all'uccellletto ".
