camping Rome

by oxiB

In July we┬┤ll stop (in our way to Sicily) in Rome for 2 days.
Can you recomend me a nice camp in/near Rome? It has to have some shade and bus/metro stop somewhere near.
Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Re: camping Rome

by mccalpin

While I have never stayed at a campsite, I used to drive by the one called Camping Roma (http://www.camping.it/english/lazio/romacamping/schedadati.aspx) all the time as it's on the Via Aurelia, the main street entering the city from the west.

The area has a lot of trees (I have to assume the campsite does as well), and you have access to fairly frequent buses on the Via Aurelia, or if you walk a little (a kilometer, I think) there is a commuter train station...but the bus will be more frequent.

Worst case, you can walk along Via Aurelia (can't get lost) a little less than 3 kilometers to the Largo di Boccea/Circonvallazione Aurelia/Circonvallazione Cornelia area, where there is a regional center for shopping, restaurants, bars, etc., as well as a Metro stop (Cornelia), serving all the residential areas nearby.

While this campsite is not in the city center (what campsite is?), it is in the city of Rome, and there are various businesses and places to eat here and there along the Aurelia. Note that the 246 and 247 buses (from memory) probably run near the Metro stop out along the Aurelia, so it's easy for you to (1) walk from the campsite to the Aurelia a few hundred meters, if that much, to catch the bus, (2) get off at Circonvallazione Aurelia (there used to be a large Standa department store on the corner as a landmark), (3) do whatever shopping you needed to do, (4) walk up to the Metro stop (100 meters? not far), (5) take the Metro to the city center. Of course, if you were just going to the Vatican, you might just stay on the bus (I'd have to recheck the routes).

My point about this overlong answer is that, unlike some campsites, the Via Aurelia location is not way the heck out of town; you would be in the residential suburbs of the City.

Thanks Bill for your answer. It is very useful information.

Travel Tips for Rome

Churches, churches, churches

by tini58de

There are innumerable churches in Rome, some of them well known, others not. You wil be surprised at the riches you can find inside a church, that does not look very spectacular from the outside.

For a good overview, you might want to look at some of the mentioned websites, or you just go ahead and discover the churches yourself!

Packing List

by Krystynn

First of all, ask yourself what kind of a holiday you're going to have. If you intend to do alot of sightseeing and walking, you should pack along a comfortable pair of shoes/ sandals. However, if you plan on having a relaxing holiday and visiting museums et al, then I'd suggest that you pack along some smart casuals and a lovely pair of shoes. Remember, no matter which country you are in, there are ALWAYS a group of people who'd judge you by the way you dress. So, it is always advisable to look presentable at ALL times... unless of course, if you are Madonna herself. Then you can get away with ANYTHING! :-) Toiletries:

Pour your face lotion, toner, cleanser et al into miniature bottles. Remember, everything else should be transferred into miniature plastic bottles to save luggage space.

Medicine:

VERY important. Don't forget to bring it along with you.

A box of strong aspirins. I was down with a high fever on my last trip to Paris and had to run to the local pharmacy to grab a box of aspirin. Wanna guess how much that box of 20 aspirins cost me? US$15! I'm not kidding. My eyeballs nearly popped out of its sockets. Poor me.
:-((

Decolgen Pills to combat the flu bug.

Lozenges. In case your throat gives way mid-way through your trip!

These are the major pills that I bring along with me. Most importantly, you must know your body and health condition well. Some of you may be more prone to suffering from stomach ailments, so in that case, you should be packing along pills to combat that.

Hope the above info will help you out a little....
:-) Happy packing for your trip! I ALWAYS, ALWAYS bring along at least 2 camaras with me... just in case one breaks down. My friends used to laugh at me.... until their one and only camera broke down. Then when they had to RELY SOLELY on me and my amateurish photographic skills, they stopped laughing. Yes, immediately. Serve them right! :-)) DON'T forget to bring along your ATM card and.... an open mind. Remember, if your ATM card is linked to international networks like 'Cirrus', 'Plus', 'The Exchange' etc, you can withdraw money from any ATM machines in the world. What's more, you'd even benefit from the LOW interbank exchange rates being given to you vis-a-vis if you were to change it at your local money-changer. I have survived on this method for ALL my trips abroad and so far, no ATM machines have failed me. Yes, even in the remotest villages in Africa.
:-)) If you haven't tried this method, I challenge you to do so today. And be pleasantly surprised at how much you can save at the end of the day using this method. I kid you not!

Whatever happened to Galleria Colonna ?

by Paisleypaul about Galleria Alberto Sordi

Whatever happened to Galleria Colonna ? Well at the end of 2003 it reopened as Galleria Alberto Sordi. It was renovated for many years ; 'famoso attore' Sordi - who I think had voiced Oliver Hardy in Italian - died about a year previously I believe, hence it was renamed after him. His 1973 movie Stardust began - and had its finale - at the Galleria Everything form book and DVD shops, 2 open plan cafe bars, clothes - everyrthing you would expect. And regularly cleaned WCs !

Open picture and zoom LHS to see what's here. from less than 1Euro to many 1,000s Euro !

Good basic food

by leics about Antica Taverna

This ristorante/pizzeria is a good find: nothing special inside, just checked tablecloths and a pleasant atmosphere. It's used by locals (gets busy after about 8pm) , good pizza cooked in a proper oven and reasonable prices.

We'd have eaten there more than once if we'd stayed longer. It doesn't look anything special from the outside, but the service was friendly and helpful, the food was both well-cooked and well-priced and the house wine eminently drinkable.

Anywhere that is used by local people is worth investigating and, if you are stayng in the Termini area, this one is worth seeking out. All the pizzas are good: very thin bases (as they should have).

LINGUA LUNGA

by Paisleypaul about LINGUA LUNGA di Mondi di Fortuna

2 pizzas - including what we would call "Hawaii" which is oddly hard to come by in Italy, mineral water , hot tea and beer was as far as we got on the menu this lunch time.
A snip at Eu20.20 for two.

The whole place is so immaculately clean that it resembles a showroom more than a working eatery ! My ususal, Pizza Napoli, and for her the elusive Pizza Ananas
