Roman Forum hours

by TravelTwee

Hello,

I'll be in Rome on Saturday and Sunday in April and would like to visit the Roman Forum. However, I've come across a website that said it will be closed on Saturday. Another website said that it was open every day and with different hours during Summer and Winter. What season is April considered?

Can someone tell me the actual operational hours for the Roman Forum in April?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Roman Forum hours

Generally, outdoor sites like the Roman Forum are open every day of the year, from 9 a.m. or so until 1 hour before sunset (with the natural variation as this is Italy). This is what Rome's Tourism Office says at http://www.romaturismo.it/v2/allascopertadiroma/en/musei08.html

The government agency that actually runs the site says "Aperto tutti i giorni dalle 8.30 ad un’ora prima del tramonto: 8.30–16.30 dal 2 gennaio al 15 febbraio 8.30–17 dal 16 febbraio al 15 marzo 8.30–17.30 dal 16 al 24 marzo 8.30–19.15 dal 25 marzo al 31 agosto 8.30-19 dal 1 settembre al 30 settembre 8.30–18.30 dal 1 ottobre al 27 ottobre 8.30–16.30 dal 28 ottobre al 31 dicembre Chiuso 1 gennaio, 25 dicembre. La biglietteria chiude un’ora prima"
Or
Open every day of the year from 8:30 to one hour before sunset [which is]
8:30 - 4:40 Jan 2 to Feb 15
8:30 - 5:00 Feb 16 to Mar 15
8:30 - 5:30 Mar 16 to Mar 24
8:30 - 7:15 Mar 25 to Aug 31
8:30 - 7:00 Sep 1 to Sep 30
8:30 - 6:30 Oct 1 to Oct 27
8:30 - 4:30 Oct 28 to Dec 31
Closed January 1 and December 25 (for obvious reasons).
The ticket window closes an hour before the site closes.

Oh, and why does the agency site say 8:30 and the tourist office site say 9:00 for the opening? Who knows? It's Rome!

What website did you see that said it was closed on Saturday???

Thank you Bill for the information. Planetware was the site that said it was closed on Saturday.

Also,would you know if there is a tram 3 at the Pyramide metro stop? I want to visit the Pyramide Cesta and then go to Santa Croce di Gerusalleme. I noticed that tram 3 runs along Circo Massimo metro to near Santa Croce di Gersualleme but the ATAC map doesn't show the Pyramide metro.

Thanks for helping.

The 'Pyramide metro' is at Piazzale Ostiense.
I'm not sure about trams but you could take the Leonardo expres (train) from Piazzale Ostiense and get out at Porta Maggiore. From Pt Maggiore only a short walk to Santa Croce di Gersualleme.

if you visit the pyramide cesta it is only a very short walk to the english cemetary which is just behind it - that is one of my favourite places in rome

the forum opened more or less at 8-30 when we were there in November last year

Re: Roman Forum hours

by craic

i have doen that walk from p maggiore to that church atlc and it would have to be 10 minutes - maybe more

Re: Roman Forum hours

by ATLC

That would be a thumbs up for you, Jen! :-)

Re: Roman Forum hours

by craic

huh?

there is an antique musical instrument museum to one side of it - and a pilgrims hostel/motel to the other side which the monks run

and at the little wooden door an old monk sells the fruit and vegetables he grows in the grounds a couple of mornings a week

Travel Tips for Rome

Porta Pia by night

by Sarita76

The famous "breach of Porta Pia" took place on September 20 1870 when the Italian Bersaglieri (light infantry) entered Rome through this gate.
The French Empire had just collapsed and left the Pope without allies as Napoleon III was protecting the State of the Church.

Caravaggio's St. Matthew Writing the Gospel

by extrajoce

In the Chiesa di San Luigi dei Francesci, there are three magnificent Caravaggio paintings, superbly located in the Contarelli Chapel. They were painted between 1599 and 1600. This is the central painting, the most simple one.

Taking the Train

by Marpessa

While in Italy I travelled from city to city on the trains - Trenitalia. I used both the Inter City trains and the Eurostar. The Eurostar trains get between destinations faster (as they have fewer stops) and in general are kept in better condition than the Inter City ones. The trains I went on had either restaurant cars or snack bars on board.

To get to Rome I came by train from Milan - an Inter City train - this took me 6 hours. Next time I think I would take the Eurostar - which only takes 4.5 hours. After leaving Rome I took a Eurostar train to Florence - a much nicer way to travel!

I had a railpass when I was in Italy, which was very handy. Although on some trips when I wanted to book a seat I had to pay a few euro extra - but it was either that or run the risk of standing up for a few hours. If you plan on doing a bit of train traveling while in Italy, I recommend getting a rail pass as this can save you money.

The website below is very helpful, you can look up timetables of the trains, prices and even book your tickets online.

Warning: Just beware at Roma Termini of people coming up and asking for your change (I had a lady stick her hands in my face) or people who are just standing around the station trying to sell you their tickets - it's most likely not legit.

Nectar of the Gods

by Twinsurf about Il Chianti

Location Location Location! This wine bar/restaurant has done a great job at securing a very hot spot while not selling out and becoming too touristy. The Trevi Fountain is just around the corner and you can sit outside and watch Romans & Tourist go about their business, while sampling a wide array of medium priced wines, mostly from Tuscany. The food is also surprisingly adequate in price as well as taste, servings are large and the staff friendly. They serve lunch daily from 12.30 to 15.30. Inside may get a bit crowded around dinnertime, so I recommend reservations and asking for a table by the windows. The pasta dishes we tried were excellent. Above all an all time favourite Pappardelle alla Lepre ... It's a very special kind of fresh pasta with a rabbit sauce. I know Rabbit is not for everybody 'cos they are so cute and intelligent animals. No they are not ... they are stupid and delicious :)

Gory History!

by rayofla

Our tour guide, Paolo, gave us some in depth history of The Coliseum a lot of which was pretty grusome. We heard about the vomitorium for one and nature of the games that went on there way back when.
