Purchase tickets in advance

by sam300

I will be travelling from Venice to Florence, after spending few days in Florence again I will be taking high speed train from Florence to Rome. With foreign CC ticket cannot be purchaed on line. Do I need advance reservation for these train rides? or I just go to train station and purchase ticket?

Re: Purchase tickets in advance

by Roadquill

I would get them the day before as I like to have some flexibility when traveling. (but I have never done the high speed train) Note that the high speed train you pay a premium for does not get you to Rome that much faster than some of the lower priced trains. Karl

Re: Purchase tickets in advance

...both. Technically, you have to make (advance) reservation, but you can made it both at the ticket counter and an automatic ticket machine up to 5 minutes before the scheduled time of the train depart.

Florence - Rome has really a lot of fast trains. I cannot think they sell out so easily.

If you already know your schedule, you can buy it at any station (and in many travel agencies without overprices) as soon as you are in Italy.

@ roadquill: I thought on the same lines but a quick look at trenitalia.com suggested that Regional reservation-free train takes 4 hours while faster trains cover the same distance in one and a half hour!

Thank You all.

Re: Purchase tickets in advance

without checking and only going from memory, there is a 4 hour train, but the IC (intercity) was almost as fast as the high speed and much less expensive. You may want to make reservations anyway just to reserve a seat.

Travel Tips for Rome

Vatican museum/the chapel

by MarikaNy

We walked straight in to the museum of Vatican, with no waiting. It was about 9.15 in the morning. Didn't have the ticket in advance. It was in the beginning of June this summer. Be prepaired to walk through the whole museum to get to the chapel, it takes about one hour even if you don't stop and look at all the marvellous paintings and statues on your way.

And don't go in the Vatican to get to the chapel, go straight to the museum (entrance outside the Vatican!) Afterwards go and see the church, there will be a long queue, but it goes fast.

REAL ROMANS HERE!

by shivan

This me and some friends, some REAL ROMANS, standing on top of a wall in Piazza del popolo, celebrating the great victory.

The happiness has been undescribable. I don't envy supporters of bigger teams because they always win, and their happiness is not the same... (I'm serious...)

Bersaglieri sculpture at Porta Pia

by icunme

Photo 1 - This impressive sculpture is positioned as it appears to charge the Gates adorning Porta Pia and heralds the Museum of the Bersaglieri (Italy's light infantry) housed within the Gates.
Photo 2 - Don't miss the relief on the side where tribute is paid to specific men and their campaigns.

Handicap Access - Rome and trains

by mccalpin

This is a note I posted on a forum on handicap access from Leonardo da Vinci to Civitavecchia:

First, how to get from the airport (Leonardo da Vinci, or "Fiumicino" as the locals call it (from the town that it is in)) to Civitavecchia:
1. At the airport itself, take the train to Stazione Termini (Rome's main train station)
2. At Stazione Termini, take one of many trains to Civitavecchia (about an hour ride, I think).
3. At Civitavecchia, take a taxi to the port - actually, I am told that the distance is not far, but for anyone travelling with luggage, much less a handicap, why not take a cab?

OK?

For the airport, look at http://www.adr.it/content.asp?L=3&IdMen=630 . At the bottom of the page is a link for "special assistance" and lists locations of lounges for special needs. One of them is at the train station in the airport. Note that I recently emailed a question to the redazione@adr.it (editorial staff for the website), and I got an answer within a day(!!!), so you might try, too.

For the Italian train system, I have found two pages, but, unfortunately (perhaps), they are only in Italian. The page for wheelchair-bound people is http://62.110.170.238/disabili/viSed.html, while a list of offices to contact is at http://62.110.170.238/disabili/hodi.html . In any case, it is clear that some trains, at least, are able to handle wheelchair bound passengers, and major stations can use lifts to load the passengers. Your travel agent should be able to use this information to get more specifics.

Also, if you're in Rome a while, there is a page by ATAC (Rome's bus system) on handicapped access - see http://www.atac.roma.it/disabili/index.asp?A=3&S=36&lng=2 - this is in English.

Cheap food to go by the Pantheon

by monica71 about Angelo Feroci

Angelo Feroci is the place to grab some tasty food while you are in the Pantheon area. The store window will catch your attention and you will be tempted to get inside and check out their stuff.
Their meatballs in sauce are excellent! You can get a very decent lunch for about 6 Euros per person.
