Rome on Easter Sunday

by jwpotter

Hi,

We will be arriving on a cruise in Rome on Easter Sunday, April 19, 2008. What should we expect. Will the city be closed down? Will there be celebrations? or will it be business as usual.

We will be back in the last part of April and first of May for a few days. Will be be early enough to beat the heat and the tourist mobs?

Thanks, Jim

The weather will be ok. It may be pleasantly warm and sunny, but you won't get the heat of July or August. It may be grey and drizzly too, but this is less likely (although by no means impossible: 3 out of my 4 April days this year were wet).

The city will be very full on Easter Sunday, with people coming to hear the Papal address etc. It was pretty full even on Palm Sunday when I visited at that time.

I doubt Rome will be entirely closed down (it is rather a large city, after all), but you should expect crowds. It would be best to avoid visiting the Vatican/St Peter's (and other churches) on that part of your visit: save them for your return. Focus on the Roman aspects of the city, Forum/Colosseum/Palatine Hill and so on, and/or maybe have a general wander around the historical centre (Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain etc). The public transport system in Rome is excellent, but you will need to check nearer the time to see if there are relevant service changes on that day.

You are likely to dock at Civitavecchia, which is some distance from Rome itself. Unless you intend to take the cruise's own tour (or an expensive shuttle) you should check public transport availability much nearer the time.

I was there the week after this year and found the weather to be great - high 50's to mid 60's all week. This city truly celebrates Easter. You will see some things that travelers at other times of the year don't. The crowds came way down the week we were there. The hotel told us that we had just missed the crowds.
You might think about Pompei which is really close to where the cruise ships come in - at least closer than Rome.

Pompeii is down by Naples, which is a bit further from Civitavecchia than Rome.

Do you mean Ostia Antica (which is, in its way, a sort of mini-Pompeii)? It's the ancient port of Rome, and well worth exploring (I have pages); an entirely wonderful place, imo.

Re: Rome on Easter Sunday

by cardwatcher

No i meant Pompei but I was wrong about the port. I just remembered getting off the boat (several yrs ago) and taking a bus ride into naples. Maybe it was another port of call????

Re: Rome on Easter Sunday

by leics

That explains it.

You would probably have docked at Naples and got the bus into the city.

But Ostia is stil well worth exploring, if the OP has the time/inclination. Not as large as Pompeii/Herculaneum but fascinating and atmospheric nevertheless.

Travel Tips for Rome

Trastevere

by sandysmith

Trastevere is the quaintest part of Rome with its narrow alleyways and eateries galore. Its very popualar/lively at night and hence we chose to eat this side of the River most nights. The rustic colours of this building with the washing hanging out just typified this area for me.

The Bocca della Verita (Mouth...

by Kindberg37

The Bocca della Verita (Mouth of Truth) is found in the courtyard of the Greek Orthodox Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. This may have been a drain cover dating from before the 4th century B.C. Medieval tradition had it that the formidable jaws would snap shut over the hands of those who told lies. This is the same drain cover you can see in Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

When Nikki and I went looking for it we couldn't find it, and we ended up finding the road you see her on at the top of this page. But then Heidi and I went back and found it. I was really excited.

by mauro_pd

My best: a book, a pizza & a beer at Fontana di Trevi ... an amazing place with tons of people from everywhere in the world.
If you prefer some good live blues: BigMama at Trastevere area, the most restaurants-crowded area in Rome. Absolutely unformal !!!

Don't miss this if you love Mozzarella

by LauraZ about Obika - Mozzarella bar

Obika – Rome’s Mozzarella bar

This place is a gem of a find! Thanks to my friend Julie who lived in Rome who told me about this place!

Think of a place in the style of a sushi bar…. But think Mozzarella not fish! Wooaa! This place is quite hidden and surprisingly not packed out! I think it’s one of those places you have to know about.

As you can see from the picture it’s yummy yummyyyyyyyyyy. It’s not expensive either! When I went there was a menu of the day for 10 Euro’s. You got a cold drink, main plate, bread and then a coffee. Not bad at all.

Even the toilets are pretty cool. You go if you are a mozzarella fan, you’ll love it! the menu of the day

Trevi Fountain

by easterntrekker

April was a nice time to see some of the sights , it gets crazy with tourists in summer.
It used to be that if you drank from the fountain you would be sure to return to Rome someday ...now with the pollution as a consideration , its tradition to toss coins in the fountain to ensure your repeat visit!
Whatever its so beautiful and a must to go see.
