visit the great museum - Palazzo del Museo Capitolino
(More pics are in Travelogue ^^) The museum locates in the Capitoline Hill. Uncounted, marvelous sculptures are shown in the courtyard, corrider, room...I seemed to fall into the river of time, flowing back to ancient Rome...
EUR - not just an acronym
EUR shouldn't be ignored, just because it's far removed from central Rome. At the southern end (take Metro B to EUR Palasport, EUR Fermi, or the last stop, Laurentina) and discover this neighborhood designed by Mussolini in quintessential 1930's-fascist style for the 1942 Esposizione Universale di Roma (hence...EUR) and his plan for a "Third Rome."
Sites in EUR include tons of museums (Museo della Civitý Romana, Archive Centrale, et. al.), monuments, wide boulevards, and LunEUR (www.luneur.it) - a fun amusement park.
This is one area of Rome you probably won't see another tourist.
Trains to domestic destinations
If you want to travel to an other town,inside Italy,prefer to take EUROSTAR or ES ITALIA trains.
There are new,very very fasten,with bar and restaurant inside,and with no noise at all.
it take Rome -Florence directly at 1 hour and 30 min,and the old trains Regional and Intecity takes 3 hours and 30 min.
Don't miss the good food!
Just go out to dinner and sit outside at one of the many restraunts. Go at night, the ambiance is great and you can't beat the price and quality of the food. While your at it get the wine too! It's romantic.
Roma Pass is Value For Money !!! am just a regular bloke and not connected in anyway to the people who issue the Pass ... I recently visited Rome and thru my research learned about it, so we decided to try it just for kicks ... bought one at the Information / Tabac / Souvenir Shop at Roma Termini Station (its located at the Bus Stop of the Double Decker Tourist Bus) ... you get a laminated plastic card (for Museum / Historical Site entrance) free entrance on the first 2 sites, reduced entrance on the next sites; a paper ticket (which you validate once at a validation machine on a Bus or Metro entrance) which is good for 3 days travel on all metro and buses in Rome (a one day bus / Metro ticket is 11 Euros so three days is Euro 33); a small map of rome; a pamphlet on the Museums you can visit and another pamphlet on current news and events in Rome. I used my 2 free entrances to the Colloseum (no need for lining) and the Burghese Museum (tho i had to pay extra as there was an ongoing Raphaello exhibit / you need to make reservations) and this was more than the 18 Euros I shelled out for the Roma Pass ... not to mention the freedom from the queues as well as the use of the City's transport system (we stayed outside Rome). When travelling in Rome's Metro system after validating the transport ticket, pass thru the entrance of abonaments, usually a Metro employee will inspect the transport ticket and you just whiz through. For those on a Budget like me, its value for money !!!
