Can anyone give me directions to the B&B Las Sosta from the main train station
Hi I have never been to Italy and was wondering if anyone could give me directions from the Termini Station to Las Sosta B&B. Any help would be much appreciated.
Re: Can anyone give me directions to the B&B Las Sosta from the main train station
1. Walk towards the front of the train station (i.e., away from the tracks).
2. If you see the exit to Via Giovanni Giolitti, go out it; otherwise, just go out the main entrance to the front.
3. Ignore any and all men offering your rides or help or whatever; you need to radiate the confidence that you have been to Rome a dozen times before and don't need there help (hint: don't make eye contact, gently shake your head as in "no", and if need be, wave your index finger gently side to side to indicate "no" - and in any case KEEP GOING).
4. Via Filippo Turati is parallel to Via Giovanni Giolitti, one block on the other side from Termini...so which ever way you get out of Termini, get to Via Giolitti (it's a left if you come out the main entrance).
5. Find some street that runs perpendicular to Via Giolitti and proceed one block...you will be on either Via F. Turati or Via Giovanni Amdendola. In either case, turn left...Via Amendola turns into Via F. Turati - don't worry, this happens ALL the time in Rome.
6. Keep going until you see #102...note that the numbers on one side of the street may not line up any too well with the numbers on the other side, so watch carefully.
Go to www.viamichelin.com, enter "Italy", "Via Filippo Turati, 102", and "Rome" for the location, and you should see the location next to Termini...it's an easy walk...
Travel Tips for Rome
Churches without bell-towers.
When born like me in a country where the bell-towers of the cathedrals touch the rain clouds one can not avoid being surprised that Rome with "thousand and one" churches has very few bell-towers! The campanile bell-tower of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, near the Coliseum is the most visible one. The bell-tower of Santa Maria Maggiore with 75 m is said to be the highest of Rome.
It hardly impresses me; in my small country there are 25 bell-towers of more than 75 m in height. We have even a cathedral in Tournai with 5 towers of 83 m.
German tourists will be even less impressed. They have the highest bell-tower with the Münster of Ulm reaching 162 m and the two bell-towers of the Dom of Cologne at 157 m.
The absence of bell-towers in Rome is largely compensated by the often immense cupolas like those of St Peters (136,5 m high) or Sant' Andrea della Valle.
The nearly absence of bell-towers in Rome always surprised me when there are so many bell-towers-Campanile in the North of Italy. The highest Campanile being the one of Cremona (111 m) in Lombardy.
EGLISES SANS CLOCHERS.
Quand on est né comme moi dans un pays où les clochers des cathédrales touchent les nuages chargés de pluie on ne peut manquer d'être surpris que Rome aux "mille et une" églises soit sans clochers!
Faites le tour avec moi et vous verrez seulement quelques clochers. Celui de Santa Maria in Cosmedin en forme de campanile est le plus visible entre le Colisée et le Forum. Celui de Santa Maria Maggiore est avec ses 75 m le plus haut de Rome.
Il ne m'a guère impressionné; dans mon petit pays il y a 25 clochers de plus de 75 m de haut. Nous avons même une cathédrale à Tournai avec 5 tours de 83 m.
Les Allemands seront encore moins impressionnés. Ils ont le plus haut clocher avec le Münster de Ulm et ses 162 m. Le Dom de Cologne n'est est pas loin avec ses deux clochers de 157 m.
L'absence de clochers est largement compensée par les coupoles souvent immenses comme ceux de San Pietro d'une hauteur de 136,5 m, ou de Sant'Andrea della Valle.
La quasi absence de clochers à Rome m'étonne depuis ma première visite alors qu'il y tant de clochers-campanile dans le Nord de l'Italie. Le plus haut campanile est celui de Cremona en Lombardie avec ses 111 m.
Rome est la ville au mille et une églises mais seulement deux clochers!
Campo Santo Teutonico
The Campo Santo Teutonico is a cementery in the Vatican for german speeking people, who died in Rome. It is a silent place only a few steps away from the loud and busy Place of St. Peter.
Only german speeking people can visit this place. Go to the passage on the left side of St. Peter. There you have to talk to the Swiss Guardsman (in German) and you can visit the Campo Santo Teutonico.

In the heart of Testaccio area, you find this nice music restaurant, with a small dance floor, a piano bar on the 1st floor and a small restaurant on the roof garden, wich in the late hour becomes a dance floor as well.
Joia cafe' it's one of new trend of romans, and it is possible to queue for a long time outside before getting in. Dance Music is very good and the drinks are delicious!
If are in Rome and want to eat without spend half of your budget in a day and to eat good food...try this restaurant. Nice local and tipical food without "tourist trap" (when a visited it-summer2004) Pasta!
Where is the dragon? How many gnomes live here? What on earth is this place? The questions are many but it is not difficult to understand that spectacular Villa d'Este is on UNESCO´s world heritage list.
The baroque style garden is fantastic. With all the water, grottos, ruins of ancient villas and strange formations it IS fairyland.
In our time, visitors are grateful that the Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, failed a bid for the papacy in the 16´th century. He became Governor of Tivoli instead, and from 1550, he maintained the idea of realizing a garden in the hanging cliffs of the area. In 1560 his architectural and iconographic program was formulated by painter-architect-archeologist Pirro Ligorio and realized by court architect Alberto Galvani.
Entranve tickets are € 6,50 full price. There are guided tours in several languages (you need to book them in advance). Audioguides (in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish) are available at a cost of 4 € .
At the imposing Villa are two bookshops, a cafeteria, and a restaurant with terrace.
