Rome to Salerno train
Hi. Am travelling from Rome to Salerno in mid June by train, and have been trying to buy a ticket through italian railways site, but my mastercard provider does not allow transactions with them. Does anyone know if these trains get booked out or would i be safe buying tickets when i get to Rome 3 days beforehand.
P.s. When i put in for 2 tickets they often come up with seats a few numbers apart. Would these be facing each other?
Thanks for your help
Re: Rome to Salerno train
You will be more than fine buying the tickets when you get there. Hell, you can probably buy it the day you want to travel.
Re: Rome to Salerno train
You don't need to worry.
Trains do not become 'full' unless they are reservation-only. In that case, you can still buy a ticket right up to 5 minutes before the train leaves, as long as there is availability. If you are worried (and want to travel on a reservation-only train), just buy the onward ticket when you arrive in Rome.
If there are not seats on 'ordinary' trains (unlikely) then one simply stands until a seat becomes available.
Just get your tickets from the machines in Termini (they have English options) eiher when you arrive or when you leave. Make sure you validate (date-stamp) them before you board, using the yellow machines on the platform,.
Travel Tips for Rome
Museums and churches are full of these.
Highly decorated and far removed from the pine box and even now we are considering some bio-degradable type of home for bones.
It must have taken them just ages to decorate these and it never ceases to amaze me that in some instances it can be 2000 years after the event and the packaging survives. This one in the grounds at the front of the National Museum in Rome.
The side streets
To the extent that we can talk about 'off' the beaten path IN Rome and a place without tourists, I enjoyed walking the odd streets - the ones off Piaza Navona, or between Piazza del Popolo and the Vatican - and just watching the life of the Romans. I don't know how they cope with all the tourists, after 3 days even I couldn't stand them anymore ;-)
Avoid taxi "ROME-SHUTTLE" Ciampino-Civitavecchia!
Taxi "ROME-SHUTTLE" from Ciampino to Civitavecchia - An experience to pass on...
Reserved a taxi for 4 adults + luggage to make a round trip from the Ciampino airport to the port of Civitavecchia (where the cruises depart) with the company ROME-SHUTTLE (negotiated 235 euros); they have a web site: http: // www.rome-shuttle.com/
They never came!!! And when we called them, the woman answered that we never reserved a taxi !!!
Unfortunately, I gave my VISA card number to make the reservation and I’m afraid that this company use my card...
What shall I do?
Other info: we easily caught a taxi from the airport, and the prices are cheaper than those practised by the taxi companies found on internet: 100 to 120 euros one way (I made 5 quotations before leaving: the prices varies from 130 to 180 euros one way).

Ho dato purtroppo il mio numero di Visto per bloccare questa prenotazione e ho avuto paura che questa compagnia non abusa della mia carta...

Altro info: si trova facilmente dei taxi all'aeroporto, ed i prezzi sono buoni meno cari di quelli praticato dalle compagnie di taxi trovato su internet: da 100 a 120 euros il tragitto (ho fatto fare 5 preventivi: i prezzi che variano di 130 a 180 euros il tragitto).

What the locals eat!
Nerone is just a few blocks from the Roman Coliseum. It is just like a small hole in the wall type. We ordered what the tourists do not, I repeat, do not order as usual. It was the oxtail and tripe stew... one of the best we had, where you will find here on Maui, too. The waiter fashioned a big smile when we told him what we want to eat... and he served it with a big welcome.
The first impression one gets when approaching to it is, gosh this construction is so huge. With all technique and skills we have today it takes several years to build the football stadium andfinish it, what a brillant effort was to build the Colosseum two thousands years ago.
The Colosseum was comissioned by the Emperor Vespasian, who died in year 79., and finished during era of his son Tit. As most of the other constructions in Rome, the Colosseum was never finished according to its plans. Truth is, fourth level is missing.
It was built for about 50.000 spectators but sometimes there were around 80.000 of them. In order to protect the spectators from a heat, kind of sailing canvas (called "vella") was added to its top. More than thousand sailors needed to operate with that huge vella.
The Colosseum was architectural wonder in many aspects. Over twenty entries leaded to its interiors, on three different lavels, and less than half an hour needed to empty it. It takes more than that in most of football stadiums built nowadays.
