changing trains in Rome

by jbpas

On September 26, 2008........I will be travelling from Florence to Lamezia ,
the train from Florence arrives in Rome at 9:30am the next rain leaves for Lamezia at 9:45am. Is that enough time to find the right track and make the train for Lamezia? Is there anyway to find out what track the Lamezia train will be leaving from in advance?
Would appreciate any help or advice.

Re: changing trains in Rome

by thirstytraveller

15 minutes would be enough, that stazione Termini (I assume that's where you arrive) ain't that big! But in Italy, trains aren't always on time, so you have quite a chance to wave your train goodbye. Check the "Trenitalia trains" tip on my Rome pages for couple of examples!

Re: changing trains in Rome

by mccalpin

Trenitalia gave you this solution because it believes that you can make the connection in Rome, which, as Kaarel says, you can.

Even if we could tell you what track each train is due on, it wouldn't mean a lot, since the trains can and do change tracks at the last minute all the time.

Instead, you should be ready to go when you arrive in Rome, check the electronic signs, and go to the other track (as Kaarel says, 15 minutes is enough time).

If the Florence to Rome train is late in arriving so that you miss the second train, then go directly to the ticket window to get your reservation for Rome to Lamezia rescheduled (there's an ICPlus about 2 hours later) - since they'll know that the Eurostar inbound to Rome was late, this should not be a problem...

Termini platforms are all next door to each other on one level...there is no huffing and puffing up and down stairs as there often is in the UK. As Bill says, get off smartly, check the electronic signs and simply walk to the relevant platform.

No need to worry about it: 15 minutes is ample time.

I would recommend to have an extra variant. As your first train may be late. We had 25 minutes,but we were late by 40 (going Napoli-Rome), so ...

Travel Tips for Rome

Gorgeous Gardens

by buzzz

As you follow the crowds snaking their way around the Vatican Museum to the Sistine Chapel you will pass through the gorgeous garden courtyard. Not so many flowers but lots of sculptures, busts even a sphinx and the buildings look lovely in the sun. It took us about three hours to work our way through the museum but could take a lot longer depending on how long you linger over the art.

A Sobering Reality of World War II

by deecat

About 30 miles South of Rome & 2 miles from Anzio Beach Invasion on the northern edge of the town of Nettuno, Italy, you will find The American Cemetery & Memorial. This Memorial & Cemetery honor those killed in the liberation of Italy during the World War II This cemetery is also called Sicily-Rome American Cemetery at Nettuno.

Allan & I visited here one grey & misty morning & were visibly "moved" by this tribute. The allies (mostly American) came by sea to Anzio Beach on January 22, 1943 to liberate Sicily, Salerno, Anzio, Nettuno, & Rome from the Nazi German Military.

It was a bloody battle; sacrifices were many. This cemetery & memorial pay tribute with 7,862 white marble crosses & Stars of David which serve as grave markers.

Sadly, 488 of these crosses & Stars of David are for unknown service members.
Most of these young men died before their 20th birthday!

In the Chapel at the center of the cemetery, there are 3,095 names of missing service members from this general area. Their names are carved into the walls of this chapel.

It is indeed a sobering experience to see row after row of crosses & stars & then to touch the engraved names of so many young men whose lives had hardly even begun.

It was a poignant moment that left us with admiration for my own father who served in this war & gave us a renewed respect for that special generation.

A simple bronze plaque reads:

"1941-1945 In proud remembrance of the achievements of her sons, and in humble tribute to their sacrifices, this memorial has been erected by the United States of America".

Just recently (2004), Egyptians were arrested near Rome because it was found that they planned to attack the American Cemetery & Memorial in Anzio/Nettuno among other high profile places nearby. They wanted to make a statement against the American military. How very sad.

Cute beer garden bar

by melissa_bel about ... A bere birra

Getting Wissal, my flatmate, to get out was always kind of difficult ... We were living on the southern side of town and "downtown" was always too far. For some reason, she was always willing to go with me to ... A bere birra. Located close the Trastevere train station, the name (drinking a beer) would make you think this is drunk-infested pub... not at all! It's more a quiet "beer-garden"... green is the dominant color here. It has a charming terrace overlooking Viale Trastevere but is far enough from the busy part of the neighbourhood. We would always stay inside (as we would try and catch "calcio" there). This bar is on the small side (even the tables are smallish) but cute with a narrow second floor overlooking the rest.
The particularity of this place is that you can actually pour your own beer from tap. They have special tables with all the equipment, I never tried myself (my grandma used to own a bar so, I know how to work it) but it seemed quite popular with groups.
Unfortunately, for a locale with a name like this, the choice of beer was not the best... at least not what I expected. The specialty of the house? A green beer. The idea was so bizarre for a beer purist like me that I never brought myself to try it (I should have though). They also have a menu (I tried the bruschetta... it was good) but the prices are not that great.

In short, a nice little pub to share with a friend or two who have passed the age or are tired of noisy pubs and binge drinkers. Casual

Pizza, PiZZa, pizZA

by dmirebella

I think one of the good things of Italy is its cheap eats. And should one not be too fussy with the edible side of things, you can find almost anything to suit ones palate.

Being in Italy, the home of pizzas and pasta, I think we pretty much spent most lunches gorging on the ever too much varieties of pizza - be it the plain nepolitan ones to the more exotic ones with goat cheese and pepparoni ( I do apologise to the guys but I am not a fan for pizza..so any type of toppings apart from the standard cheese and sauce is considered exotic hey) My personal favourite is the simple aubergine topped pizza - simple, but filling.

Civitavecchia to Catacombs to Castelgandolfo

by Rome2008

In Civitavecchia mostly elderly passengers can select a driver guide like John in Italy to drive
you from ship to Catacombs on the Appia Antica, followed by a courty side ride to the famous
Castelgandolfo City where the pope has a small palace over looking the lake. It is must see
and also stop to eat and drink wine. Reservations : www.rometourandlimousineinitaly.com
