Rome to Munich
Hi to all ,
I have two questions
1-How much is the air fare from Rome to Munich ? I'm looking for a reasonable rate
2-Is there any train line from Rome to Munich ? And again how much will it cost?
Re: Rome to Munich
Hi - check www.whichbudget.com for budget airlines and www.trenitalia.com for trains. Happy Travels!
Re: Rome to Munich
www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html will give you train times and fares in English.
For flights, you could also look at www.harefares.com
Be aware of the strict hold baggage limits and check-in times of budget airlines.
I think I'd go by train, personally.
Travel Tips for Rome
Just like churches and fountains, Rome has hundreds of squares. The biggest and best known are Piazza Navona, Piazza Venezia, Piazza del Populo or Piazza Espagna.
Our favourite was Campo dei Fuori, a square that has been used for a colorful market from the second half of the 19th century. Do go in the morning to enjoy the hustle and bustle there and have a cappucchino in one of the surrounding cafés!
Porta Portese Market
On Sundays from 7am to 1pm, every peddler from Trastevere and the surrounding Castelli Romani sets up a temporary shop at the sprawling Porta Portese open-air flea market. The vendors are likely to sell merchandise ranging from secondhand paintings of Madonnas and termite-eaten Il Duce wooden medallions, to pseudo-Etruscan hairpins, bushels of rosaries, 1947 TVs, and books printed in 1835. Serious shoppers can often ferret out a good buy. If you've ever been impressed with the bargaining power of the Spaniard, you haven't seen anything till you've bartered with an Italian. By 10:30am the market is full of people. As at any street market, beware of pickpockets! Porta Portese is located near the end of Viale Trastevere, very close to the Tevere river. (see map on pic no.2)
At capo du fioro- the place of locals ,pubs,night clups and descos, after 1 am most of the bubs closed, but if you have time and want to dance until morning, there are few descos with membership start from 10pm to 5 or 6 am.. i recommend ZARAGOZANA or DROP,, membership only euro 5 paid for the first time only, the owner of both places is Franchesco Mainly casual
Suffering a little culture shock?
If you travel to Rome and find yourself or a travel partner suffering from a little culture shock, one way to get over it is to visit the Hard Rock Cafe. This restaurant is located on the Via Veneto. This is the same restaurant that you would find in the U.S. The same food, same music and it has American waiters and waitresses. It's a great place to go to get a burger and fries, soda and a milkshake. This is my go to place when I travel with anyone who has never really traveled before. It's a great way for them to get over some of the culture shock they might be experiencing. It gives them time to unwind in a more familiar setting. It makes being in a different country not so different anymore. My friends say just knowing it's there is reassuring for them.
This Hard Rock also has the usual gift shop. I was able to purchase really nice shirts that had the logo and Rome written on them. They also have the usual shot glasses, keychains, pins and such. I usually look for things that specifically say Hard Rock Rome. On the outside of the building is the Hard Rock Rome sign. It's a nice picture that everyone will recognize.
So if you find yourself or your friends suffering from some serious culture shock, go to the Hard Rock. It's just like being in the States again. Let them have an hour or so in an atmosphere where they will be at home and comfortable. One of the best memories I have of this Hard Rock is: I had taken my sister and my 10 year old daughter to Rome. They were both really suffering from severe culture shock, i.e. they both wanted to go back to the hotel early every day, they didnt want to leave the hotel before noon everyday..... So I took them to the Hard Rock. While we were waiting for our food, the music from Waynes World came on, specifically Bohemian Rapsody. The restaurant was a little more than halfway full and when the song got to the musical part, everyone in the place started head banging just like in the movie (which was playing on the t.v. monitors all over the restaurant). My daughter was just looking at everyone with complete incomprehension written on her face because she has never seen Waynes world. At that point everyone noticed what everyone else was doing and the whole restaurant started laughing. It was great, like an inside joke shared with everyone.
It helped my sister relax and enjoy the rest of her stay in Rome, knowing the restaurant was there and also that so many others were in the same position: in a foreign country and being uneasy about it.. It wasn't just her.
See Rome in 1 day or even 2 days.
See Rome most of Rome in 1 day and then 1 day at the Vatican.
For some flying a large distance could be costly and inconvenient. When coming to Europe many persons try and see as much as possible by spending a couple of days in each city. A friend of mine had 2 whole days in Rome, so I decided to show her as much as possible and this is what we did. The first day was spent seeing the sites in Rome and 1 day was spent in the Vatican City.
Ensure you get plenty of rest, because you may need it for the long day ahead of you. The itinerary is split into two by having ancient Rome in the morning and the rest afterward.
Wake-up in the morning and have breakfast. Make your way to the Coliseum and tour inside. The opening hours are 09:00 am to 16:45. Afterwards, head over to the entrance of the Roman Forum located on Via San Gregorio. Remember to keep your ticket for the coliseum because you can gain entry into both sites with the same ticket. When you exit the Roman Forum walk down across the street of Via dei Fori Imperiali and look down into the Fori Imperiali. Continue walking away from the Coliseum and take a visit outside Piazza Venezia located on the corner of Via dei Imperiali and Foro Traiano. At Piazza Venezia take a break for lunch. I recommend getting a taxi and going to Pizzarium (Via della Meloria 43) for the best pizza to go and it will put you near the location to start your second half of your tour. At this also point if you like, you could choose to do the second part of the tour tomorrow. All you need to do is make your way to St. Peter’s Square in the morning or my taking Metro Line B to Ottaviano.
After Lunch, head to the St. Peter’s Square. You can walk or take the Metro Line at Cipro and get off the next stop on Ottaviano and walk to St. Peter’s Square. In the square you could find a booth near the water fountain to book a reservation for the Vatican Museum the following day and avoid the long line to get in. After visiting the square proceed down Via della Conciliazione and cross the street to Castel S. Angelo. Take the bridge Ponte Sant Angelo and cross the river, once across make a left and walk east on Lungoteverre Tor di Nona (Along the River).
You will come to the main road called Via Giusppe Zanardelli and make a right. Continue on Via G. Zanardelli until you are confronted by a building at Piazza di Tor Sanguigna. You can either go left or right, but the location you want to get to is just behind the structure in front of you. Behind the building is Piazza Navona.
After visiting Piazza Navona we will head over to the Pantheon. To get to the Pantheon head east of the Pantheon to a small alley way called Corsia Agonale. You will go across Corso dei Rinascimento to Via del Salvatore. Turn right at Via della Dogana Vecchia and immediately turn left at Salita de’ Crescenzi and you will walk into the Pantheon. Explore the piazza and walk inside.
Now on our way to the Trevi fountain. Take Piazza della Rotonda and turn right on Via dei Pastini. You will be walking and eventually the road will become Via di Pietra. You will cross Via del Corso onto Via della Muratte. Continue on Via della Muratte until you reach Piazza di Trevi. Check out the Trevi fountain and stop for one of the best Gelatos in Rome nearby at San Crispino. To get there, head east on Via della Stamperia and continue on Via del Lavatore. Turn left on Via della Panetteria and look for building 42. The name of the place is “Il Gelato di San Crispino.” It’s only 2 minute walk and a must to try when in Rome.
Now we head up to Piazza di Spagna. Head North on from Piazza di Trevi toward on Via della Stamperia. Cross the main intersection of Via del Tritone and continue onto Via del Nazareno. Turn right at Via di Sant’Andrea della Fratte and continue onto Via di Propoganda, which will bring you into Piazza di Spagna.
Finally, we go to Piazza del Popolo. You should walk Via del Corso to get to Piazza del Popolo to check out the shops along the way. All you need to do is head west on Via del Condotti, which is right across from Piazza di Spagna. You will quickly run into Via del Corso and then make a right heading north. Walk all the way into it opens into Piazza del Popolo. When finished there is a nearby Metro Station to get back to wherever you need to go to.
Now you have seen most of Rome. Of course there are many more places to enjoy in Rome, but these get the major sites under your belt and the picture to go in your album. To see all the sites of Rome would take weeks, to include the many restaurants and Gelaterias Rome has to offer. Don’t forget to book a reservation at the Vatican Museum.
