Presto Tours as Vatican Tour Company

by dahnab

Has anyone had the oppurtunity to tour with presto tours? I am choosing betwen presto and a couple other companies and I'd like to hear some reviews on their guides/skip the line entry. I am particularly interested in the Vatican VIP Tour and the Colosseum Tour
thanks

Re: Presto Tours as Vatican Tour Company

by Plumeria54

I looked at Presto Tours also but ended up going with Angel Tours instead. We used them for a skip-the-line Vatican tour and also took their Colesseum tour. Both were well worth the price and better than trying to do it ourselves out of a book. Reasonably priced for all the info we got. www.angeltoursrome.com
They were also recommended by the Rick Steves Rome tour book we used.

Travel Tips for Rome

Fontana Di Trevi

by Cool-123

It is said that the soldiers of Agrippa, looking for water in the via Collatina in the country, met a maiden who showed them the source of this pure water, which was hence called Virgin Water. The bas-relief on the right represents this even; that on the left shows Agrippa explaining to Augustus the plan to bring this water to Rome.

Emperor Hadrian's retirement home

by aaaarrgh

Villa Adriana is very near to the hilltop town of Tivoli. It is a vast retirement home for the Emperor Hadrian, who was a cultured Roman and great collector of Greek art.

The Villa is more like a small town. It will take you a long time to explore it. Unfortunately that meant I ran out of time to explore Tivoli and the famous (Renaissance) Villa d'Este.

Villa Adriana is described in the guidebooks as 'romantic' but I would describe some of it as spooky. Full of ghosts! Very tranquil.

Some of the ruined buildings are big enough to climb up to the upper floors.

Watch out for the large underground passageway (cryptoporticus) which has been a destination for tourists for at least 600 years - you can see the graffiti written by very famous people (and me to *wink*) on the walls and ceiling!

At the very opposite end from the entrance is the tranquil 'water feature', the Canopus, is an exact copy of a famous Greek work of architecture.

There is a gift shop at the entrance. They sell guides and books on the Villa.

DIRECTIONS
I caught a bus towards Tivoli from Rome's main bus station. Villa Adrian is about 40km east of Rome. Get off the bus about 1km before Tivoli, at the bottom of the hill. Ask the bus driver to stop there for you!

Rome metro

by mallyak

The Metro and regional train lines are much more than a communal means of transport: they can also become a vehicle for "intelligent tourism". In Rome and Lazio, there are many lesser-known yet extremely interesting tourist attractions, which are easily accessible using the Metro or regional train services.
Such sights are of great historical and cultural value and represent an undiscovered world of tourist destinations that are a mere ten minutes walk from Rome's various Metro stations.

Like Family

by rstary about Pietro Valentini

You get to know the family and feel like you are their favorite guest. Make a reservation for 8 PM and show up 15 minutes early. You will get extra special attention. It is a small and cozy restaurant, so you will need reservations. The owner prepares a special before-dinner cocktail right at your table. He mixes fresh basil with cointreau, scotch and champagne. It may not sound good, but wait until you taste it. It was a nice and entertaining way to begin our dining experience.

Auditorium

by Twinsurf

Weather you're a fan of Classical Music, Opera or just Architecture, the Auditorium is a stop you hardly want to miss on your tour of Rome. The Architect Renzo Piano designed this futuristic and intriguing complex. Many have commented on its striking resemblance to crab shells :) The Sydney Opera house is probably not very threaten by it, but the Auditorium has gained over the past few years an exceptional taste in choosing its concerts and events. The last addition to it is the brand new annual Rome Film Festival (October 13-21), which has already promised to rival Venice and Cannes for the glamour and stardom.

The Auditorium itself was built a bit out of the way, but it gives a chance to observe the Parioli quarter, one of the most beautiful example of upper class residential area, with its architecture and everyday Roman lifestyle.

They have recently opened a nice museum style coffee house inside the complex, which allows you to get a tasty snack.
