Rome Airport Fiumicino

by orchid1949

How I could go to Rome airport from Florence? I will stay in Florence and do not stay in Rome.

Take the train from Firenze to Roma Termini station. From Termini, you can take the express train to Fiumicino Airport.

If you take the train from Florence SM Novell and arrive at Termini you will be in exactly the right place to get the onard Leonardo Express train to Fiumicino.

If you can't or dont want to buy a through ticket from Florence you can buy the Leonardo Express ticket either from the ticket machines (which have English language options) or from a booth on the dedicated platform. Trains run at 52 and 22 minutes past the hour, and are direct.

Thank you for all responses. By the way, if I leave from Siena to Rome airport, it should be the same way to go to Roma Termini and proceed to expres train to the airport.

Re: Rome Airport Fiumicino

Yes, except that you will have to change trains (mostly at Chiusi).

will give you timetables/fares.

Siena train station is quite some distance form the historical centre, so you will either need a bus/taxi to the station or you could take the bus to Florence (about 50 minutes) and get the train from there (the bus stops in the Sita garage almost opposite SM Novella station, and in the historical centre of Siena).

Travel Tips for Rome

Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi

by Gypsystravels

Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) Located her in Piazza Navona is the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The rivers represented in the fountain are the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile and the Rio de la Plata. They are arranged on a steep rocky reef from which a Roman obelisk taken from the Cirucus of Maxentius rises up into the air. Rumor has it that sculptures on the fountain symbolize the rivalry between Bernini and Borromini. Innocent the X first commissioned Borromini, but Bernini obtained the comminssion by corrupting Donna Olimpia, the Pope's sister-in-law.

My Favorite Fountain

by xeberus

This is one of my favorite places in Rome. Piazza Mattei is surrounded by palaces, including the Palazzo Mattei, of course. The Mattei family were in charge of the gates to the Jewish Ghetto. The walls of the palaces are subtle, orange/red. This backdrop and the cobbled ground surface are the perfect setting for the Fontana delle Tartarughe (Turtle Fountain) in the center of the square. The fountain was designed by Giacomo della Porta in 1585and executed by Matteo Landini. In 1568 Bernini added the turtles which give the fountain it's magical appeal. So how to find it? Hmm. That's the trick. It's nestled at the edge of the Jewish Ghetto. If you start from Largo Argentina and head into the winding streets to the east and south, staying within the confines you'll eventually find it, and the search will be half the pleasure!

Rome deca-dance in Testaccio club area!

by icunme about Nightclub Row

This former stable area with its rowdy wine bars has remained true to its history in one way. It is now the rowdiest nightclub area of Rome - cars jam the parking lot - people line up for entrance to clubs that offer something for every taste (from discos to alternative open air and gay clubs on certain nights) and every wallet - lots of sleaze, nasty bouncers, and a distinct Bohemian atmosphere. The young locals are there enforce on any given night; but, of course, the weekends are a madhouse. It is far enough from residential neighborhoods to be no nuisance and in a not very desirable area - but if you're looking for decadant nightlife - this IS the place.

Photo 4 - A snippet of history on pre-nightclub Monte Testaccio - with excavated caverns housing rowdy wine bars and stables - at the time was not touched by the development of the new quarter and its inhabitants were proud of the new rione symbol, a testae, the amphorae used by the ancient Romans to contain wine and oil.

OTHER NOTABLE CLUBS - Amnesia (the club with the glass floor) - great club for people in their 20's & 30's. Also, ICE CLUB, Via Della Madonna Dei Monti, 20
is a MUST see - so cold its HOT - made entirely of Ice (they give you a warm-up wrap so you can stay while you drink to warm up!) The first one we saw was in Milano. Whatever!

Nice Wine Bar with Great Pizza!!

by yuibird about l'Enotec Antica

When you walk in, there are lots of locals sitting around the bar drinking wine and having antipasti, but after you pass the bar area, there is seatings for food and ofcourse the good wine!! It is a bit dark, but it is lively with people. People are drinking wine and beer from 1 pm in the afternoon. Now, the pizza here was so delicious!! Every table had the pizza to eat. The waitress did not speak any English, but she was prompt and helpful. PIZZA!!!

Imagine the Chariots- Circus Maximus/Circo Massimo

by grandmaR

After we visited the Colosseum, Sandro drove us past this site and pointed it out to us. It used to be a the chariot racetrack of Rome. The name is Latin for greatest circus, in Italian Circo Massimo. It is now a runner’s track, sports park, and green space. The third picture was from a website with public domain pictures and shows the reconstructed site. Julius Caesar expanded the Circus in 50 B.C. so that the track measured approximately 2,037 ft long and 387 ft wide. It could hold 12 chariots. Chariot racing was very dangerous and there were spectacular crashes which could result in the death of the participants.

The excavation was done in the late 19th century. There is no entrance fee, but it lies behind the fenced off Palatine hill, with a view of the ancient imperial palace (photo 2). We didn't stay here long, but the internet site on parks says

All hippodromes (horserace parks) in ancient times were built with banked sides as bleacher seats for spectators, either landscaping the earth or as built structures. Circus Maximus was the largest of its kind, able to hold 250,000 spectators. The chariot races held at the park were popular sports attractions with Romans. They often bet on the charioteers, who were the sports celebrities of their time....

The south embankment sits higher than the north. Near its center is a wide platform with a dozen benches facing the track. This is where the emperor and his entourage would have sat during the races. Today it’s a good spot to survey the Palatine (one of the seven Roman hills) and its excavated architecture. For a closer look at an excavation-in- progress, the east end of the “Massimo” holds ancient structures that historians believe where the horse stables and dress areas of the chariot riders.

A softball diamond is roughly outlined at each of the corners on the track. Teens gather here after school and on weekends for pickup games. You’ll find morning and evening joggers working their way around the track...
