We're visiting Rome in May and have 1 day spare to tour. Is it worth visiting Castel Gandolfo - does anyone please know the opening hours - or has anyone any other suggestions for other places to visit ? papal di terme or Brianico may be

Thanks everyone who is helping so much to make this hol a great trip. All info greatly appreciated.


by muratkorman

Why don't you take a train from Termini and go to Napoli for a day? It will take around 2 hours, but you will enjoy the city and the delicious pizzas :)


by nicolaitan

If you decide against Castel Gandolfo, other choices include Ostia Antica for ruins, lovely Orvieto, and perhaps best Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este in Tivoli.


by abarbieri

Castel Gandolfo is the name of the village. VT members Tetreus have a travel page about it: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/1ea70/256f8/

The Terme dei Papi is a very good Spa located in Viterbo: www.termedeipapi.it

Brianico if exist is not near Rome!!


Travel Tips for Rome

Temples in the Forum

by CandS

This is the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina in the Roman Forum...

This temple has an inscription on the architrave which identifies the building as the temple of emperor Antonius Pius and his wife Faustina. It was originally built after her death in 141 AD, but in 161 AD when Antonius died it was dedicated to the couple.

Go to Palestrina and see the...

by Igraine

Go to Palestrina and see the Nile mosaique. The amount of details, the colors it's stunning, going there you have to climb a hill with a bery good view on the local countryside.
The mosaique shows the flow of the NIle from the South with the wild beast and dark people, passed Thebes and teh Karnak Temples and ending in the delta with Alexandrie.

Also the therms off Caracalla are not the first place to go but they are much nicer then the therms off Diocletianus who are in the city center next to the main bus/railwaystation.

Metro building

by XenaP

By now, Rome metro is fixing from 21:00. By 21 there's no more metro so if you plan to know the night of Rome better choose an hotel in the center or you will pay a lot on taxis, at least until the fixings ends. The normal timetable it's later, around 23:30 and 00:30 on saturdays. When it's over, you can find hotels with beautifull gardens a little bit far but still near metro stations.

Pizza with a heart

by ema522 about Il Boscaiolo

Il Boscaiolo is one of those little, unpretentious local places that you're always looking for when you travel. It's located between ritzy Via Veneto and Via Sistina, the long street that runs in front of the Spanish Steps. The facade is rather plain so you really have to look for it as you walk up Via Liguria, the little street between Veneto & Sistina. The name means "the woodsman", which you can deduce from the cozy, somewhat rustic decor with wooden carvings on the wall showing hunters & woodchoppers. It's also tied in with the wood-fired pizza oven, which is the first thing you see, although they have plenty of treats other than the pizza. Depending on the time of day, you'll see predominantly tourists or locals (the locals always show up later in Italy), and the fact that locals do patronize it is a true sign of quality. 2 courses with wine will set you back between $15-20, even with the awful exchange rate at the moment. Of course there is an amazing assortment of pizzas and they're all delicious, but the real surprise is that they come in the shape of a heart! Since it was autumn, I was gobbling up the mushroom variety with fresh porcini. The pasta & appetizers are excellent as well - the bucatini amatriciana was as good or better than any I've ever had in Rome.

Rome according to Dan Brown

by bluV11t

For my next trip to Rome I would like to visit some of the sites from Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons". I'll have a re-read of this book soon and be back with an extended list of sites to visit.

At the top of my list is the Vatican also becuse I didn't get to see either St. Peters or the museum due to the jubilee (2000).

Also on my list is Castel St'Angelo wich I didn't get a closer look at last time, due to impatient travel-mates...
