Rome and Florence during Settimana de la Cultura 2010 = Madness?

by tori113

Hi All,
I have my itenerary booked to spend 5 days in Rome and the last two days of the Settimana de la Cultura in Florence (April 16-25), the problem it seems is that the is the worst time to go to any museum (I can't get a ticket to anything in Florence anymore, through the official website, so, has anyone actually been in Rome during this week? will the lines be insane, even if I manage to get tickets online? Would it be better to just rearrange our schedule so that that week we are elsewhere in Italy (for example, Amalfi Coast or Tuscany?), and if I do re-arrange it seems like the hotels are starting to get booked (i.e. can't get the same hotel I choose first). It seems like other sites I can manage to get some tickets, although I would prefer to hear from some trust worthy ones if anyone knows about them, but then I am concerned about the amount of people. Thoughts? Suggestions?

I've visited during that week.

It was good, because sites were free (not sure about the Vatican museums though).

I didn't find queues any longer than usual, but I suspect it depends what time you actually visit and where.

Certainly wasn't packed out with people.

I never book tickets ahead online but know other Vt-ers have used

The vatican does not take part as it is not in Rome.

You won't need to book tickets as the sites are free that week. The lines won't be any more outrageous than normal.

If you would feel more comfortable not going during this week then you should re-arrange your schedule but I think you will be fine.


Travel Tips for Rome

Sistine Chapel

by kcochran111

The Sistine Chapel is one of the most spectacular things to view in Rome, especially if you've studied any of the paintings previously. If you have the time, definitely bare the line to get in, but don't bring your camera. The carbinieri are very strict about their "no foto" policy (and yes, using your zoom to get a better view is frowned upon also!)

But, the Sistine Chapel has LOUSY HOURS! You can only get in between 8:45-12:20 on Saturday. And, it is CLOSED SUNDAYS!

So, don't be like me and show up to the door at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon and expect to see the Chapel!

Local custom

The lifestyle in Rome is very much an outdoor one.

People don't stay put in their homes, just coming out when necessary, or when going to work. In the UK this is often the case I have noticed.

People live inside their homes (or in the pub!) alot more. I guess the weather plays a role here too.

When the sun does come out, so do the people... and the deck chairs (Hyde Park) :)

In South Africa, the lifestyle is alot more outdoors and to me, healthier. In Rome, the difference is that even though it is an outdoor culture, people still sit around more, whereas in South Africa, one is more likely to be actively doing something, playing a sport, sailing, hiking etc, not sitting around.

This is more difficult to do in a city like Rome of course, hard to hike where there are no mountains haha... but at least one gets alot of walking done in Rome.

We did A LOT of walking, hardly used public transport and all and this is good!

This is a very nice shop, located near the Spanish Steps.You get very good quality and good value for money.They do also have another 2 shops in town. They have casual and elegant stuff available, including accessories like gloves and scarfs.

I flew into Rome from London.

As soon as I got off the plane i picked up a weekly pass for buses and the metro, then I took the direct train about (45 minutes) to the main station,my hotel was about 300 metres fron train station so it worked out well.

Good wine bar

by gmg61 about Uve e Forme

A nice wine bar and bistrot not far away from Tiburtina station.
There's an excellent choice of wines, on the majority italian ones but with a good range of foreign wines. Also some good food, both cold or warm.

Cozy atmosphere, nice ambience. liked a lot the selection of cheese
