2 hrs in Rome

by EviP

Further to "layalaya" 's question below, I am wondering what can one see/do in a couple of hours in Rome, arriving at Fuimicino airport at 08.00 hrs and leaving at 12.00 hrs. Is this time enough to visit Parco Da Vinci,as suggested below? are there any other suggestions? and how about transportation from and back to the airport?

thanks in advance

If I remember correctly the train from the airport to the Termini takes at least half an hour or more,that is assuming you get on it straight away after you have cleared customs,plus the same time back. It would not give you any time in Rome at all I am afraid.

do not tempt fate - stay in the airport

The train ride is about 40 mins and it only goes every half hour you would have max. 40 mins in rome.

It's not really worth the risk, I think, even with a taxi.

You might get to Ostia Antica (wonderful place), which is nearer than Rome itself, but you'd have hardly any time to see it before you had to leave again. It deserves at least two solid hours, and if you are landing at 8 you are not going to be getting a taxi much before 8.30 at the earliest (and will want to be back at the airport around 11 at the latest).

VT-er McAlpin may be able to tell you how long the taxi-ride to Ostia should take: it may (just) be do-able, if you are willing to pay for a taxi and can keep yourself to a strict time-limit (and your fingers crossed for no traffic jams on the way back).

Ostia info here:

(interestingly, it's the airport company's website)

If your layover is just 4 hours that will not give you time to get into Rome and then back to the airport with enough time to check in and go through security. I would not even try it. If you could push your flight back you would be able to see the city but not with the short amount of time you have.

Travel Tips for Rome

Visit the PIAZZA DI SPAGNA and...

by drolkar

Visit the PIAZZA DI SPAGNA and THE SPANISH STEPS. The square got its name after the Spanish Embassy was established here in 1646, and the steps were added in 1725. The 16th-century church at the top of the steps is the TRINITA DEI MONTI and, for enthusiasts of the English Romantic poets, the Keats-Shelley Memorial House is No. 26 in the square.

Ostia Antica

by vysnaite

It's something that people often miss while in Rome, but it's for sure worth visiting as it's unique. Ostia Antica is a city that dates to II cent. A.D. It's all discovered not so long ago, all the ancient city with the Terms, Theated, streets, houses, markets ecc. WHOLE ANCIENT CITY complex in one place. I doubt you can see something like that soon.
At least it's worth visiting because of fresh air if anything else does not interest you, it's close to the sea, real refreshement.

Cool Bar

by craic about On The Rox

I came here a lot once I had been introduced to it by a local. It has a great ambience, with nice outside tables and sofas. I liked the sofas.
It has a bouncer. When I went there it had a German bouncer who was really on the ball and was also great to chat to. I had had my bag snatched at an Irish pub - which had no bouncer -so I appreciated the security. I have been told American students come here because of the bouncer.
Happy hour is late. Rome is a city that wakes up late. It was something like 8pm-9pm. Locals start to arrive about 10pm.
They often had no food, but once they were experimenting with aperativo nibbles.
There is a disco downstairs on Friday nights but that also starts late. I seem to remember it starts at midnight.
It is in a quiet side street off the main drag in Testaccio - and if you are there about 10pm you will see the Roman cab horses heading eagerly to their stables just around the corner.
They have a great range of cocktails - I was slowly working my way through their menu - but I didn't make it so will have to go back.
I liked all the staff that I met. I asked one girl for an ashtray - a portecenere - and she made an extravagant gesture to the whole world and said - "Tutti portecenere!" Most amusing.
A very pleasant, laid back sort of place. Seemed cool about the dress code.

the biggest? the best?

by sinoda about Pizzeria S Calisto

A very small entrance leads to this pizzeria, no fancy attraction marks or signs. You just have to know here is a top restaurant - on almost all scales.

This two storied pizzeria is really worth being given a chance. Pizza S Calisto rosso. Have a look at my pizza (the one in front) in the picture.



The building is 142 feet wide and 142 feet tall. Once, the empty spots surrounding the portico contained statues of Roman gods, and animals were actually sacrificed in the center beneath the dome. The coffered dome has an 18-foot hole called an "oculus" in the middle where light streams in. This is the dome that inspired Michelangelo's St. Peter's dome. Marcus Agrippa built the Pantheon, but Hadrian later rebuilt it as a temple for all the gods. Most books refer to it as "an architectural marvel", and I agree. It's open: Mon-Sat 9a.m.-6:30p.m. Sun 9a.m.-1p.m. Believe it or not, admission is FREE! Even if you usually dislike tourist places, the Pantheon is really a must see.
Once it was atemple for paganism , now a church of catholics.
