Fori Imperiali Entrance Fees

by Oleh

Hi there,

I'll be visiting Rome over the weekend 30 October - 1 November. I heard that the Vatican museums are usually free on the last Sunday of the month. Does the same rule apply to the entrance fees to Fori Imperiali? If it is not the case what is the price of a ticket for Fori Imperiali?

Unless things have changed, i don't believe the Forums ever has a free weekend. Your ticket will be a combo that included the Colosseum and Palatine Hill and costs about 11 euro. This ticket is best purchased at the Forum or Palatine ticket booths and NOT at the Colosseum. The ticket also gives you 24 hours from time of purchase to tour the 3 sites.

And to mention: just because the Vatican Museum has a free Sunday doesn't mean that's the best time to visit. Free Sundays tend to be mobbed, and visiting hours are also shorter than normal. The wait in line may also be a real waste of precious time. To make the most of your time, I'd buy a ticket in advance (that allows you to skip the ticket line) and go on a different day, if possible.

Maybe someone else can answer this: If Sunday is the poster's only option, could they they purchase a ticket for Free Sunday that allows a line skip? If trying to save money, this isn't a good solution but if wanting to make the most of the museums...?

Great suff! Thanks for your detailed reply. Will act accordingly! Thank you

You are very welcome. Here's the Vatican website for ordering museum tickets:

Do note that free entrance to the Vatican Museums on that Sunday is only from 9:00 - 12:30 - and the museums close at 2:00. That's why I'm a bit concerned that this may not be the best day: the museums are VAST. :)

Just another note: I looked at the museum website and no, you can't order tickets for free Sunday so would have to get in line very, very early. There is an individual, non-guided ticket available for Saturday the 30th but not until 2:30 PM, and they're going fast. If this is your preferred option, I'd jump on it quickly!

As Kate has noted well, the Vatican Museums don't go by the same rules as the State museums in Italy, for the simple reason that they are in two separate countries ;-) Also note that many State museums are closed on Mondays because they're open Saturday and Sunday, whereas the Vatican Museums, being affiliated with the Church, tend to close on Sunday...except the last Sunday of the month...

Having said that, note that outdoor sites in Rome tend to be open 7 days a week, so you will want to look at the schedules of each site that you want to visit and put them on the appropriate day...

In terms of the sites along the Via dei Fori Imperiali, look at
which is from the official website for Rome's Tourism Office...that site has actually become useful over time, and I suggest that you look at it...

Travel Tips for Rome

Drinking water fountains

by SueWarwick

It can get very hot in Rome. When I last visited in early June the temperature during the day was usually over 35 degrees C.
Luckily, however, most street corners and plazas have drinking fountains.
Best thing to do is buy a cheap bottle of water for a few cents from one of the supermarkets then keep re-filling whenever you find a drinking fountain.
They are also a great way to just cool off!!
Designs range from quite plain to rather elaborate!

If you don’t have a bottle to fill, just place your finger over the main outlet and water comes out of a smaller hole at the top of the fountain making it easier to drink from.

No fast food

by chicabonita

* crostini, bruschetta, panini, tramezzino *

... and what ever all the delicous snacks are called. I wondered who needs a McDonalds ... but I was relieved to see that the restaurants with the yellow M weren't crowded ...

My favourite was a panini with radicchio salad and gorgonzola in a place near Plaza Cavour ... geeting hungry when thinking of it :-)

I also tasted suppli! mmmmmhhhh

What To Do In The Town Of BRACCIANO

by Krystynn

Bored staying at the Castle... and don't know what to do?

Worry no more, my friends!

The little medieval town of Bracciano boasts of a mere 14,000 inhabitants and is perched 280meters above sea level . The town's most famous landmark must surely be the majestic Castello Odescalchi di Bracciano.

In case you get too bored staying in the Castle, you must wish to explore the Botanical Gardens of San Liberato where you can also admire the oldest bell-tower in the world.

San Liberato

For the more adventurous, I'd like to highly recommend taking a boat trip on the lake with the "tragetto"....

For the artsy folks, how about a visit to the Aeronautical Museum at Vigna di Valle

I am sailing , I am sailing....

by belgianchocolate

I realise that this is hardly a tranportation tip...
BUT , I enjoyed it so much.
If your having your day of , no museums that day
or you had you portion already , go to the
artificial lake in Villa Borghese.

3 Euro for 20 minutes a person isn't little ,
I realize that. But you can chase the turtles ,
wave at the 20th century statues in the
roman temple and just relax....

Mostly a miss

by Tijavi about La Barca

In a city as big as Rome, restaurants are a hit and miss affair. This one is mostly a miss - but not quite totally. My spaghetti with clams and mussels was not bad, it was not fabulous either. For mains, I ordered Sardinian roasted suckling pig and I was given a horrible part - somewhere near the bony leg - and the waiter tried to sugarcoat it by telling he'd given the best part; well, it wasn't my first time to have suckling pig, or pork for that matter! The mimosa - a dessert of cake with fresh berries, was like the pasta, mediocre.

The waiter was very chatty and very friendly, but he seemed too aggressive in recommending dishes. I like to take my time to ask questions especially if it's my first time in a restaurant. This is not fastfood!
