The Oly is just outside the centre (not stayed there but some non-VT friends have). It is well connected to teh centre through Linea B of the Metropolitana and Marconi station (10 minutes Colosseo, 12 minutes Temini central station).

Most of the tips for restaurants you will find on VTY are more for the Centro Storico and othe well trod environs, and you should check some of these out. However, the more suburban and out of the way places in Rome also turn up less heralded but completely outstanding restaurants and tratorrie.

Go find some and let us know! : )

Travel Tips for Rome

Tartuffo

by yellowstar

I am not sure whether it is a local customs tip or a tip for tourists... I didn't know how to place it better.

Have a Tartuffo ice cream on Piazza Navona!! There is one café directly at the middle fountain where you get your Tartuffo for 5,50 Euro. You can sit outside and observe the many people on the Piazza.

In other cafés the Tartuffo is more expensive. So take a look at the menu.

Tartuffo is an excellent chocolate ice cream with chocolate pieces. It tastes a bit like mousse au chocolat but frozen.

Unfortunately I didn't take any picture.

The Basilica of Santa Sabina.

by oneonta_ni

This beautiful church near the Circo Massimo was built in the 5th century and still has most of it's original features. I was fortunate enough to attend a wedding here. The interior is relatively plain compared to other churches around Rome but this is, I think, what makes it so beautiful. Glass was an expensive item 1500 years ago so the windows are actually made from a type of marble cut very thinly. This allows an amazing amount of light in. The doors at one end of the church are original and carved from cypress.

In the courtyard outside the church is a beautiful fountain made from a mask-style drain cover, similar to the one called the 'Boca della Verit?'. The church is very popular for weddings.

There is a quiet park next to the church for a break from the bustle of the city.

This photo shows the inside of the church, decorated for the wedding we attended.

Electric Bus !

by puerto_lover

Apart from the normal buses running around Rome, there are ELECTRIC BUSES !
These are buses that wind there way through the narrow streets in Rome reaching places that the normal buses will never see !

For example there is the 116 bus. This starts near the Vatican at Terminal Giancolo and runs all the way through the central streets passing close to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps before ending up at Via Veneto and the Villa Borghese.

This bus was a real asset when I made some 'forays' into the historical areas and seem to run quite frequently - perhaps every 15 minutes during the day. Not very comfortable and the drivers seemed to treat them like golf buggy carts but nevertheless a welcome mode of transport !

Best to check also using the ATAC web site for the exact route and of course there can always be changes ! .

This may help although am unsure if it can work in every case. It is a short cut link to a very long URL from the ATAC website showing the Route and Times for Bus 116. Click on the LINEA 116 bar at the top to show the route graphically. But routes do change and so it is best to verify the exact route during the time of travels and consult the ATAC web site in advance to picture your nearest bus routes.

A Map of the bus lines in Central Rome is also on ATAC web site.

This should produce a PDF file ( 2 mb large ) of this large map.

Pizza Huts

by Taffster about Various Pizza parlours

You have to get into a pizza shop whilst in Rome. The pizzas are cooked in giant slabs then cut to your requirements and weighed. Not all pizzas are cooked with tomato sauce on the base but the best thing about this kind of cafe is that you get to see before you buy!

Trastevere

by AndreSTGT

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Centro Storico, i highly recommend taking a walk over the hills of Trastevere along Passegiata del Gianicolo south of St.Peters. This is one of Rome's most verdant and relaxed areas, and you get some fantastic vistas over the city.
Going downhill, Via Garibaldi will lead you right into the heart of Rome's prettiest quarter Trastevere where you can relax in one of the many cafés or trattorias that are cheaper and slightly more authentic than the ones downtown.
