transport....

by chelseatraveler

I will be flying into the Ciampino airport in Rome at 9.30pm and have booked a hostel in Lido di Ostia....how on earth do I get there? I'm worried that buses, ect. will have stopped and I'll be forced to take an expensive taxi...the directions on the hostel website are only from the other airport, and even those aren't the clearest...any advice??

THANKS!!

Re: transport....

Hi,
If you do not want to take a taxi, which is the simplest way to get to Lido di Ostia, but also the most expensive, you can take a Terravision bus to Termini station (center of Rome) and from there you will need to take a metro B to Piramide station and there you will need to change to Ostia train.
From Termini to Ostia it takes about 1 hour.

Travel Tips for Rome

Map Gallery

by nicolettart

The map gallery inside the Vatican Museum was really incredible! On display are old, huge maps, which are absolutely beautiful. I picked up reproductions of 16th century maps by Renaissance cartographer Ignazio Danti in the gift shop. I especially liked the Italy and Liguria maps.

San Pietro in Vincoli

by nicolettart

Michelangelo's statue of Moses is located in the church of San Pietro in Vincoli (St. Peter in Chains). We visited the church on a rainy late afternoon... I guess finding it in the dark makes it off-the-beaten-path. To our delight it was completely empty--not a soul in sight. The great sculpture is part of the tomb of Pope Julius II, who commissioned Michelangelo in 1505. The church holds the chains of St. Peter, which were used to shackle him while he was in Rome's Mamertine prison.

The trend

by AlexDJ about Goa's Club

This place features a constantly-changing ethnic-style disco that has become increasingly popular over the last few years: house, jungle, hip hop and tribal music are compulsory sounds. Perhaps it is the best known club at the moment . GOA’s probably the closest thing to a NYC club over here.
On Sundays, there are the rhythms of the surfin' and happenin' 'Surf Revolt'. Gay night is on Tuesdays. The disco can hold up to 700 people with a central bar that is surrounded by sofas.

Gotta have Pizza in Rome

by Escadora7 about Pizza Place

Ash:
Where else would you have pizza if not in Italy?

This was so romantic! A little pizza-place on a side-street. Excellent food and extremely friendly service (by an Italian low-button-bloused-hot-mama). This was perfect after walking around the Vatican, and visiting Castel St. Angelo. Thin-crust pizza loaded with fresh toppings, and cheese melting all over the place. Add a bottle of wine and life is good! Quite possibly the best pizza I've had in my life.

Even bones have to have a seista

by sirgaw

It would have to be one of the most macabre sites in the world. More at home in Draculas castle or a Nazi concentration camp rather than a Christian church.

The Convento dei Frati Cappuccini has 5 crypts which contain the bones of long gone friars and other Romans - and they have been arranged artistically. There's the skull room, the pelvis room and the room where all the thigh and leg bones await.

Admission is by donation and the church and the crypt are but a stones throw - or is that bone throw - from the Barbarini Metro station.

Note that the crypt is closed for "siesta" from noon to 3 pm - even the bones need a break.

The photo I've posted is not one of my better photos, however there is an unofficial web site where most of the crypts have been photographed. http://www3.sympatico.ca/tapholov/pages/bones.html Below is the official web site of the Capuchin friars - interesting side note for the next time you have a coffee - the name of the drink "cappuccino" is derived from the order of friars hood.
