Suggestions for places to see in Rome on a 4 day trip in December 2010

by 2risty

Hello!

We will be in Rome next month from 27th December (afternoon) to 31st December (early morning). I have done the hotel booking, and have a hop-on hop-off tour (2 day pass) booked already as part of the travel package. We intend to take the hop-on hop-off tours on 28th and 29th.

Please suggest which must-see places/attractions in/around Rome should we try to cover during our stay. We are staying in a hotel located just a few blocks from the Vatican.

Thanks in advance!

For both your questions here on Rome and Florence there are extensive amount of sightseeing and sites to be seen there - both very historical - here on VT we have in addition to specific questions and answers we have Travel pages that VTers put together on places theyve visited - Travel pages are all set up with Things to Do, Places to Eat etc etc categories so there can plenty of information available there - along with a rating and ranking system so pages are ranked in order of acknowledgement and also in order of newness

So I would of course recommend that you indulge in some enjoyable reading and looking through photos that are also provided - see how you go and if theres specific info you need that is not already covered then to come back to the forums here

There are also excellent guidebooks eg the Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Footprints of which I never travel anywhere without at least one of them as they also generally have a wide range of accommodation and eating choices, what to see and addresses etc, info to find your way around and also be able to do things on the spur of the moment and make changes and adjustments to itineraries etc.
There are also similar questions asked previously that you can look back through these and read the answers - they can be found listed under their country listings so you dont have to scroll back through the entire world forum postings.

All the best - both excellent and beautiful places to visit and spend some time...!!

St. Peter’s Basilica (go to the top for great views of Rome), Vatican Museum, Colosseum (get the audio guide), the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, Trastevere, etc., etc. Have a great time!

You should try to check out Trastevere just over the bridge for a different view of Rome. A litle further out is the town of Tivoli that has two large tourist attractions in the Villa d'Este; their website: http://www.villadestetivoli.info/galleriae.htm
and Hadrian's Villa; their website:
http://www.villa-adriana.net/
You may want to also check out Ostia Antica closer to FCO airport. See their website: http://www.ostia-antica.org/
If you would like to look at my VT Rome tip pages, see: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/736c8/23513/

Reserve a full day for the Vaticnan Museum and St. Peter's (see my Rome page for a tip how to save time getting from the Vatican to St. Peter's). Coloseum is a must. As is Pantheon. Wander through Trastevere. 4 days is also enough for you to do a day trip outside of Rome - I highly recommend Ostia Antica (Closer than Pompei and just as good in my opinion). Enjoy the fountains, ruins, churches, the piazza's at night, pizza's all day long, the atmosphere and have as many cappacinos as possible. Look at buying tickets in advance to avoid wasting time in lines.

Makes me want to check airfare.

Travel Tips for Rome

Eat your ice cream where Italians do

by monica71

Gelaterias are all over Rome, but to really enjoy a taste of heavenly ice cream you have to eat it at the places Italians eat. There are few old and well know gelaterias in Rome, but the best one is Giolitti. You can eat your ice cream at the table (in a very nice and elegant setting) or you can just get one "to go" (as we did). The taste is amazing and you have to try it to believe it! We stopped by one evening, after 8pm and we tried several flavors (all very good and really hard to pick a favorite one). All the flavors are natural and there are no artificial flavors or chemicals into any of their ice cream, so what else can you really ask for?

You can find Giolitti on Via Uffici del Vicario 40, really close to Piazza Colonna.

never too busy

by sinoda

In Rome you're never supposed to be too busy in order to not have time for a chat here or there.

cosí fan tutte - e tutti --- everybody does it

Especially when being visibly a tourist you will find this attitude among natives in customer service. They will have all the time to chat with each other, capable of leaving you waiting for... just as long as the conversation happens to take, no matter what.

And if you should have the impertinent habit of interrupting and claiming to be served, you might even achieve it, but this will be rewarded with an arrogant "tssseh" and a demonstrative look away.

Oratorio del Gonfalone - Gonfalone Oratory

by abarbieri

The oratory was established 1544–1547 by the Archconfraternity of Gonfalone, who aided pilgrims and served at hospitals. The Oratory has been restored between 1998 and 2002.
A cycle of paintings from 1572–1575 depicts scenes from the Passion of Christ. This is one of the best examples of Roman Mannerism.
It is not open to the public but there are often classic music concerts performed here.
Private visits are available on request.

Airport Shuttle Service

by jag17

We found a very reasonably priced airport shuttle service. We used it to return us to the airport at the end of our trip, but I believe they are also available to pick up when you arrive. Good prices, and prompt service. We paid 23 euros for the first passenger, and 6 euros for the additional passenger. No additional fees for luggage. Much cheaper than using a taxi!

One thing I cannot rave enough...

by Razorart

One thing I cannot rave enough about is the food in Rome. But I suggest you avoid the glitzy Ristorantes that line Rivoli and head towards the little Trattorias near Termini instead.
I had the *best* food at one such place (they appear to be pizzerias, but also serve pasta). I ordered a side of grilled vegetables and a vegetable pizza and some wine--for less than ten US dollars---and couldn't finish. Grilled vegetables in Italy are better than anywhere else I've had them.
