December Weather - What to pack?

by starman5000

Hello All:

I will be in Rome, Florence and Venice next week. Generally, should I pack sweaters and light coats? Is that enough or do I need thicker coats and thermals?


Re: December Weather - What to pack?

I won't pack too light, at least for Venice:

It is cold.... freezing in the morning after a clear sky night.


Re: December Weather - What to pack?

I wouldn't either.

I needed two layers layers under a light-ish padded coat in February Sorrento for most of the day (more at night, and a scarf), and much the same in Venice in early April.

Venice is surrounded by the sea and it can definitely feel like it, especially if there is a wind.

Take clothes you can layer, as necessary, under your thicker coat. Scarf/hat/gloves might well be useful, and an umbrella.......and sunglasses too. :-)

Hi, I have a similar question.

We're visiting Rome the week after next and what we'd like to know is if we should have shoes with a non-slippery sole. Here in Sweden it gets slippery when the sidewalks and streets have got wet or frosty.

Sorry to hijack your thread OP.

Re: December Weather - What to pack?

by leics

I have found some Italian streets/pavements to be slippery when wet, whatever the time of year particularly where marble is used (not on the streets, but on shop frontages etc). There's quite a lot around, and I've slipped more than a couple of times (though only actually fallen once, with consequent bruised bottom for several weeks).

So yes, non-slippery soles are a very good idea, imo, whether it's frosty or not.

Thanks dear, hope you didn't break anything.

Don't think so.......but it felt like I did. Very difficult to sit down comfortably for rather a long time.

Marble: slippery when wet. :-(

Travel Tips for Rome

How far is it to .......

by monorailgold

Rome is a wonderful city to walk in. The sights are nestled close enough together to making walking the best way to go. If you are at the colosseum and want to see the closest sights, they are the forum, capitoline hill, Santa Maria in aracoeli, trajans markets, Santa Maria in Cosmedin (mouth of truth), circus maximus, baths of caracalla, and the palatne hill. These sights literally lead you into one another and will take you on a circular route. The picture to the side shows the circus maximus with the palatine hill to the right and the bell tower to santa maria in cosmedin on the left. A five minute walk behind you is the baths of caracalla. Depending on where your hotel is you can take a metro to either the colosseum or the circus maximus station. The picture was taken just outside the circus station.
When you are looking at the maps of rome that you see in guidebooks, realize that the scale is very deceiving. The sights may look to be spread out and you may think that you need a cab to get around but that is not the case. Plan your day around a particular area and see everything in that area. Believe me, you won't run out of things to see.
In the area of the Pantheon is Santa Maria Sopra Minerva (around the corner), Piazza Navona (about a 10 minute walk), and Castel San Angelo (another 10 minutes)..
The Trevi fountain is a 10 minute walk from the palazzo Barbarini, then about 10 minutes to the spanish steps (don't forget the Trinita dei Monti) and another 15 minutes to piazza del popolo ( don't forget the twin churches). Just up the hill is the Pincio gardens.
These times depend on how fast you walk. I would suggest you take your time and enjoy all the sights, not just the major ones. There are beautiful, historic remnants around every corner in Rome. Just take your time to notice them. You will be amazed and enjoy your trip even more.

Great little jewelry shop!

by ArianaR

Near the Trevi fountain I found a great little jewelry store. It was all handmade jewelry some was made of glass. I bought a beautiful silver bracelet with pearls and shimmer beads for only 3 euros. They had a big selection and were very reasonably priced, if you like sparkly things they head for this shop you will not be disapointed.

The store is called Gitti and is located at Via di San Vincenzo, 17 (Fontana Di Trevi) 00187 ROMA

It will happen at the Ship!

by Marilyn18 about The Drunken Ship

Good for drinking and all American! Bartenders are (nearly) all either British or American (exception: the manager), so you'll get along here quite well. Mostly filled with English-speaking people, so if you can't see the Italians anymore, you can come here. The bartenders are always in a good mood and try giving everybody a good time (try a body shot!!!). No dress code, sometimes there are Hawaiian Nights were you are allowed to come in nothing or a coconut bikini! ;-)

Eating in the basement.

by sandravdp

This restaurant is situated in a basement. Through the windows you can see peoples feet walking on the pavement . The waiter is fast but a very busy person. You can choose many sorts of Italian food, it's not expensive and tastes good. Bruschetta with tomatoes. Yummy!

Museo del Purgatorio

by halikowski

Near the sacristy of the neo-Gothic church of the Sacred Heart, built 1914-6, is its Little Museum of the Souls of Purgatory. Here is a dim corridor with a wall of ten framed proofs that the dead do return. They come from the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries. Mostly the proofs are hand or finger marks in something earthly.

For example, on the night of June 5, 1894, Sister Margaret in a nunnery near Perugia was visited by her late colleague Sister Maria, who'd died that morning. Sister Maria had suffered for two eyars from tuebrculosis, longing for release. That night she told Sister Margaret that she was in Purgatory, because of her impatience, and she needed prayers. Sheburned her finger-mark into Sister Margaret's pillow-case, on display here, and promised to return. Later that month, she did return with the good news that the sister's prayers had released her.
