Escorted Scooter Tours Of Rome

by Billwalker

This is going to sound strange but we are looking for a tour of Rome on the back of someone else's scooter. We are too nervous to ride a rented scooter in Rome so we were wondering if this type of tour would be available ? Can anyone help

Yikes! Can't they provide an armored vehicle instead??? ;-) Kate, you are brave ;-)

hahaha, oh, to be young again and zipping around Rome on a Vespa...oh, wait, I never did that...I had a Fiat 124 with no seat belts - now THAT was exciting! No pollution controls to slow down the engine and no safety features to boot - yeehaa! (at least I had 4 wheels).

Oh, Bill, also look at http://www.italysegwaytours.com/rometours.asp for the Segway tours - I have no personal knowledge of it, but at least it's harder to fall off ;-)

ME? Brave? I barely drive in Minneapolis! After just barely staying in one piece dodging the motorini in Rome, the very thought of driving there gives me an ulcer. Can't believe YOU did it!

No, these companies do the driving for you - you hang onto the back. And pray.

And no - I haven't done one of these. Yet. :)

Coffee in Italy for beginners

by melissa_bel

Coffee in Italy is one serious thing. This dark and aromatic brew is strong, fragrant and nothing like people in the US are used to. Even the smallest bar will serve a very good cup of coffee (to start with, they all have a cappucino machine).
To help the traveller choose the coffee, here are my tips:when you order a coffee or "caffé", don't expect a 20 oz. cup. "Caffé" is the equivalent of an "espresso". You don't even need to call it espresso, if you ask for a coffee, you'll get an "espresso". It is seriously strong and served in a tiny cup. The ristretto is an even tinier cup of coffee but because it's "stopped short" of a Caffé", it's not as bitter. On the opposite, the caffé lungo is a tall caffé. If you crave coffee, you can order a "caffé doppio", a double shot of coffee or a "caffé americano" which is basically a shot of coffee with more water added afteward so you have a bigger cup. Caffé macchiatto" or stained coffee is a coffee with a little bit of milk while "caffé con panna" has cream on top, instead of milk. The "caffé latte"is quite popular amongst the tourist too. It's a shot of coffee with a lot of steamed milk and topped with a little bit of foam. While people pleaser cappucino is a coffee just topped with steamed milk without holding back the foam (tourists add coccoa on top). Little known "Caffé coretto" has a little bit of alcohol (grappa, whisky for gentlemen, amaretto for the ladies but you can choose what you want) in it.
Coffee is usually drunk on the spot without even sitting. You'll see a lot of Italians in the morning on their way to work stopping at the bar for a quick fix. But even tiny bars have a couple of chairs, if you want to take your time.
Now... to order the coffee is another thing ;o) so you can follow the link bellow and you'll be able to order your drink like an Italian!

Porta Pia

by icunme

Here you will find the Museo dei Bersaglieri (Italy's light infantry).
Photo 1 - Of the three designs Michelangelo prepared, Pius IV apparently chose the least expensive one. The monumental side of the gates of Rome is the external one. Porta Pia is an exception: Pius IV opened a direct road (named after him Strada Pia) which linked the Quirinal and this gate; the decoration of its internal side was meant as a celebration of Strada Pia.

Photo 2 - The outer part of Porta Pia was rebuilt during the pontificate of Pius IX in 1868. At the time the State of the Church was restricted to Latium and the pope was aware he could not resist from a military point the Italian army; maybe that is why there is an angel holding the symbols of the pope, as if protecting the gate. But in 1870, the collapse of the French Empire (Napoleon III protected the State of the Church) left the pope without allies and on September 20, 1870 the Italian bersaglieri entered Rome through a breach near Porta Pia.

Don't Forget to Time Stamp Your Train Ticket

by Lacristina

It's important to remember to time stamp your train ticket BEFORE you get on the train. (You need to stamp your bus tickets when you get on the bus, too.) If it's not time stamped or validated (in Italian, "convalida") and a conductor checks your ticket, you'll be fined big time (well, if they are in a good mood, maybe only 5-10 E, but it could be 50E, or as much as 500 euros). If you're not sure how, just watch other folks. If the machine you try doesn't work, try another.

And there will be no explaining that you're just a dumb tourist and didn't know any better. That argument won't work as they've heard it before!

If the machines aren't working, you are supposed to write the date and time on your ticket.

This photo shows folks stamping their ticket in the yellow machines at the Fiumicino Airport train station. The bus machines are either yellow (the new ones) or orange (the old ones.)

It's true that if you have a "reserved" seat on a train (for example, a Eurostar) you don't need to time stamp your ticket (your ticket already lists a specific date and time) - but why take chances? Just do it every time and you won't forget and won't be sorry.

A favorite of the locals....

by Laura_Mexico about Pizza Re

There are 2-3 of these around Rome, and they have a very good Napolitan Pizza and a very Roman atmosphere. Not many tourists know about this restaurant, it's rather Romans who go there, so that's why you will see mainly native people there. Celebrities visit this place often as well. The prices are a little bit high but they're worth it. All pizzas are great, try those that appeal you the most according to their ingredients, they are all good.
