"Roma 2009 Christmas"

I made a 2-week trip to Italy during Christmas 2009 and New Year 2010. Since this was the 3rd trip I made to Italy, I focused on the Southern Italy, i.e. Naples and Sicily.

Day 7: Palermo (Day trip to Monreale) O/N Hotel Regina 19 Euro.

Rome Tourist Police

by deannanz

Does anyone know how I would contact an official in Rome Italy with regard to complaning about a rental campervan company. The Campervan we rented broke down after 3hrs, we didnt get a refund then a month latter he charged my credit card 1200.00US$ for? WE are trying to get it back via the credit card company but Van Italy were also not licensed to rent vans therfore illegally rented to us.
Is there police I could contact in Rome,Italy? or a government department that looks after tourists being ripped off by bad operators?

Re: Rome Tourist Police

It sounds like the kind of frauds that are dealt with by the Guardia di Finanza corps. They have at least three operative headquarters in Rome. I suggest to write to the following address:
Guardia di Finanza
Gruppo Roma, Nucleo I
Via Nomentana 591
00162 Roma

If your write your letter in English, put as a heading on the top of the page the following sentence: DENUNCIA DI TRUFFA A DANNO DI TURISTI STRANIERI so your letter will go to the proper department.

Unfortunately I have not found any fax number in the GDF official website. If you want to phone, the number is +39 06 87 021.

Be sure to put a warning tip about this company on your travel pages. These unscrupulous organisations cannot be stopped unless plenty of people know about them and know not to use them. Of course it helps if the news gets passed on to as many other prospective travellers as possible. Plaster their name as far and wide as you can.

Alfresco Bar for people watching

by sue_stone about Bar del Fico

Bar del Fico is located in a small square, not far from Piazza Navona.

We had a couple of drinks here before dinner one night. Drinks were reasonably priced and there were plenty of free bar snacks!

There is a large outside terrace which is a great place to relax and do some people watching.

Avoid Tourist Traps!

by msemler about trattoria

To get a great meal at a fair price in Italy, don't go to a "ristorante" or any place where the maitre d' is wearing a tux. Go where the Italians go when they want to eat out - a trattoria! Not all trattorias are excellent but most are very good, and you won't get charged an arm and a leg.

Also, if you like wine, just order "the house wine" and you'll be happy. No need to spend more for some label. Fresh vegetables with pasta.

Cat lovers Rome

by helenmellor

If you are a cat lover, head for the Largo del Torre Argentina to visit the cat sanctuary amongst the ruins of the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated, known as the Area Sacra. There are over 200 very happy cats roaming around in what must be cat paradise, right in the centre of Rome! You can visit the sanctuary's shop and infirmary (between 12 noon to 6pm I think) which is manned by the lady volunteers and lots of feline helpers and there is a guided tour of the ruins at 4pm most days (we didn't manage that, but would go back another time).
