Visit to Vatikan

by manuna

Could you, please, tell me how long will it take to que to Vatikan garden and museums in August? E.g. if I come 8 a.m? Or is it easier to get there in the afternoon?

Been there done that, queued for around an hour in the morning. I suggest you go around lunchtime.

Re: Visit to Vatikan

No-one can give you a firm answer about how long the queues will be, but you should definitely expect queues. Try to be flexible in your plans, so if the queues are too long when you first go you can go away, do something else and then go back later.

Re: Visit to Vatikan

Good idea to assess the length of the queue and make a decision whether to stay or come back but be aware that doing this may possibly have a detrimental effect.

After leaving the Vatican Museums, where I had queued for over an hour, I saw the longish queue to enter St Peters Basilica and decided to have a quick lunch and come back. The queue was a lot longer on my return.

These two places are tourist icons. Expect queues (and queue jumpers) and try not to get too annoyed at the ignorant people who don't organise themselves and their belongings BEFORE they reach the security check. This is what holds the queue up the most IMO.

I want to make sure that you understand that access to the Vatican Gardens is not part of the admission to the Museums. You can enter the gardens only as part of a formal guided tour (although you can see the gardens from a number of windows in the Museums as well as from the top of the dome of St. Peter's).

See http://mv.vatican.va/5_FR/pages/z-Info/MV_Info_Servizi_Visite.html for info on tours of the gardens...

That's a good point, Bill. I'd missed the reference to the gardens in the OP.

You have to make an advance booking to visit the gardens, and preferably well before you visit Rome.

For the museums you can either book in advance (plenty of agents if you google) or simply join the queue.

Travel Tips for Rome

Have some details about the popular item.

by unravelau

Given that the "Mona Lisa" is a very small painting considering its huge reputation, I didn't think it unusual that the wolf (yes THE wolf) was tiny too. Huh!

Don't worry, I did see the real thing albeit while it was having a thorough going over and a bath.............behind a glass wall........... I definitely miss the excitement of seeing these things, monuments, statues etc that I had known to be in existance but had never seen before.

there are many musuems, places...

by jennifer99

there are many musuems, places within this city that most people may miss- as they are nestled between 'villas' or on side streets, down alleys- its amazing how much i missed and realized only after I returned home- well now I know: keep your eyes open- or ask- most people understand english..

The Spanish Steps / Piazza di Spagna

by globetrott

The Spanish Steps / Piazza di Spagna...

have a look at the many young girls, waiting for their chance to meet the right people there...

Its in fact amazing to watch the scenery of people hanging around, watching each otherand waiting for something that never will happen...

;-))

But it is great fun and a lot of atmosphere NObody cares for your dresses there, except maybe when you intend to enter one of the garden-restaurants there

Great Sicilian Food!

by sonia72it about Siciliainbocca

From starters to desserts Sicilian cuisine is a real delight!
The restaurant is in Prati area (they have also a winebar in Trastevere with quicker dishes) and is furnished with colorful Sicilian pottery.
Closed Sundays.
(on their website there are also recipes) Starters: "panelle" (pancakes of chickpea flour) - a must; "polipetto caldo" (little boiled polyp with lemon); "primo sale all'acciuga" (hot cheese with anchovy and rockets).

Pasta: "Maccheroni alla Norma" (short pasta with fried eggplant, salty cheese and fresh basil); "Pasta con le sarde" (pasta with sardine, fennel flower, pine kernels and breadcrumbs) - great!

Fish: "Sarde a beccafico" (sardines with seasoned breadcrumbs inside) - a must

Desserts: "Cannolo siciliano"; "Cassata siciliana" - yum!; "Trionfo di gola di Panarea"

Liqueurs: "Rosolio alla cannella" (sweet cinammom liqueur); "Limoncello" (lemon liqueur); "Liquore al fico d'india"

Informal Bus tours in Rome

by wallna

There are a few different informal bus tours you can do in this great city but the two I did was the Roma Christian (a yellow double decker bus) and a blue bus tour (can't remember the name of the tour bus).

The Roma Christian (Yellow bus) went from the Rome Train Station (Roma Termini) and returned there after about 2.5 hours, visiting all the main attractions in Rome. This is not a good bus tour. The cost was about 12€ but the connection for the speakers was faulty, the English version of the tour was spoken by an Italian woman with a thick accent, the information was patchy when given. The only benefit of this tour was the ability to use the ticket for a 24 hour period and get on a off at different points of the tour. The next bus would be along every 20 minutes.

There was also a red bus tour that did the same thing and had the distinction of being the Original tour. I didn't do this one but anticipate it could only be a better version of the Yellow bus tour.

The second tour was on a blue bus that did not depart from the Rome Terminal, but from Santa Maria Maggiore, a five minute casual stroll along a straight road from the Terminal. This bus tour did not stop and allow people off at the various points like the Yellow bus, but the tour was still 2.5 hours long. The cost was about 16€ and the quality was exceptional. The headset system was very clear, the English speaker was clear, the information provided was far more detailed, there was a pleasant music in between the spoken pieces to allow the listener to know they still had a connection.

Overall, if you are on limited time as I was and want the maximum amount of accurate and clear information, then I highly recommend the blue bus tour. You can buy the tickets from the same place as all the others outside the Rome Terminal, or from the actual bus conductor.

Don't waste your money on the Roma Christian Yellow bus company, you will get far better service and value from any of the others!
