by craic

Thanks very much.

train from Rome? I'm sure the station is called Ostia Antica. Take metro to Piramide, change to Roma-Ostia line until Ostia Antica.
going back already?

no train would surprise me, a friend of mine takes it to Ostia Lido all the time! not that I checked with her for a while but still...
Ostia Antica, as in Ostia La Vieille, or as in Roma, città aperta, or Paris, Reine du Monde. Latins like feminine cities I guess.
my notice thing doesn't open so it took a while before I saw & could reply to yours. ciao!

we tried to find Roma Citta Aperta in Bologna and we were chatting in english and an italian was so over come he just had to attempt english and try to help us

gotta see that flick

meanwhile i have a newbie trying to get from Fuimcino direct to Ostia Antica and Trenitalia is not helping me

says it doesn't know the stations

may be having an italian cosa

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

saw Roma città aperta again recently, liked it more than ever. Like a documentary with emotion and passion. That sort of cinema was a gift to the world when it was first made.

I hadn't thought about going from Fiumicino to O La Vieille, don't think the train goes that route. I'll check forums to see exactly what I'm looking for :)

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

by craic

can't wait to see it

also paisa

almost ready to let the guy land at fuimcino and find out

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

by leics

It's absolutely superb....and about 5 minutes walk from Ostia Antica station. Over the railway bridge, straight up the road, turn to the right at the end of the road........lo!

Enjoy!

Hi all

The stop to the excavations is "Ostia Scavi" (as I remember) or "ostia Antica (as this map says http://www.atac.roma.it/docunet/file.asp?mid=3&rid=4) along Ostiense line, that is considered a metropolitan line of Rome You can take the is metro B to "Piramide", and than jump on a train of the Ostiense from the upper level.

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

by mccalpin

Ah, Francesco! You beat me to it! Yes, this is a stop on the Roma-Lido city railway. Speaking of the map, I don't know why this line doesn't show up on trenitalia...after all, other city rail lines do (like Roma-Viterbo).

Oh, well, felice anno nuovo!!!!!

Bill

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

by mccalpin

Ah, I see...the FR lines show up on trenitalia, but the named lines (like Roma-Lido) don't. I was confused because there are two lines to Viterbo, but only the FR line to Viterbo shows up in trenitalia - the other one doesn't...oh, well, more detail than anyone can possibly care about ;-)

Bill

Re: What station do you get off for Ostia Antica?

Hi, Bill!!!

hope you did not lost too much sleep for missing something on the italian rail system... You're career of Trenitalia consultant won't be spoiled by that... !
Ciao

Travel Tips for Rome

Cover charges and tipping

by Bunsch

When you are seated at an Italian restaurant, you should anticipate paying "coperto" or a cover charge, assessed on a per person basis. This ranges from something minimal to several euros, presumably depending upon the restaurant although I never analyzed this during our trip. Since the cover charge is intended to compensate the restaurant for the cost of doing business, including the employment of the wait staff, I was told not to apply the American standard of tipping 15% or more of the bill. Rather, the tradition seemed to be to put one's excess change on top of the credit card slip or cash to cover the meal. That sometimes resulted in several euros' "tip" but it would still be a fraction of what I'd pay at home, even if one included the coperto.

Just alongside Rome train terminal

by unravelau

Have you ever wondered what it is or what it was used for?

The Temple of Minerva Medica now in ruins and no longer open to the public even on a good day, has the most unusual feel to it .

I took quite a few photo's of it but never did find out why I was getting the unusual feel.........maybe the history will tell you.

The Metro

by mattreider

The Metro is really, really convenient. And it will be about 10 degrees warmer in it than everywhere else. Don't take a jacket. Watch out for pickpockets.

But hey, it goes everywhere a tourist wants to be. And it sure beats those tiny little cars.

Bucatino all'Amatriciana

by Sarita76 about Trattoria Da Bucatino

Another typical Roman "trattoria", but I would say this is the best one I've ever been to.
My second time there was with Marit, maritagnes here on VT, a nice Norwegian lady and she said it was her best Italian meal ever.
You can taste lots of typical Roman dishes, such as Bucatini all'Amatriciana, Pollo con peperoni, abbacchio allo scottadito and many others! My favourite dish is, of course, Bucatini all'amatriciana. Bucatini are similar to spaghetti, but are much broader with a hole through the centre... The only problem is they're not as flexible as spaghetti so that it would be quite hard to wrap them round the fork!!!! So, if you want to avoid sauce all over your clothes and face, don't be shy and use your towel as a bib!!!
Apart from this tricky part, it's a great experience!!!!

Forum Traianum

by Pieter11

Marcus Ulpius Traianus was the ruler of Rome from 98 untill 117. He gave the Roman Empire its biggest surface. This gave him the name `optimus princeps´, that means very best emperor.

Traianus has built his own forum, the Forum Traianum. It was built between 106 and 113 by his architect Apollodorus of Damascus. Its the last and the biggest of all Fori Imperiali. It has a length of 300 metres and a whith of 185 metres.

The entrance had the shape of a enormous triumph arch. Because the passage trough the arch was very narrow, the Forum was even more impressive when entered. There were a lot of important building at the forum. In the middle there was a huge statue of Traianus sitting on a horse. At the northside there was a big markethall with several floors. It was crossed by a shopping street, the Via Biberatica.

At the northwest there were temples of Divus Traianus (god traianus) and Diva Plotina. Hadrianus ordered the first temple to be built in 121, when Traianus died. This temple doesn´t excist anymore. At the place it used to stand, now stands a church: the Santa Maria di Loreto.

At the back of the forum there was the Basilica Ulpia. Ulpia was the familyname of Traianus. Is used to be 180 metres long and 70 metres wide and was the biggest ever built in the Roman Empire.

The column of Traianus also was an important part of the forum. It stood between two libraries, behind the Basilica and before the Divus Traianus. It´s the only part of the forum that is really well kept.

To prevent the column of being destroyed, in 1162 a law was made that said: He who damages the column will be centensed to death. It was built in 113 to remind the victory in Dacia by Traianus.

The column is covered by a comicbook. Images tell the story of the battle of Dacia. On top there was a statue of Traianus, but that was destroyed. In 1587 pope Sixtus IV ordered to put a statue of Petrus on top of it. The column also is the grave of Traianus. Inside the base there is a room that keeps the ashes of Traianus and his wife.
