Christmas 2009

by alisonf

Hi, family of five (2 adults, 3 sons ages 17, 14 and 11), will be in Rome for Christmas, looking for restaurant for dinner on 25/12.

It is too early to know which restaurants will be open over Christmas and New Year, and what their menu will be... usually they'll let you know by mid or end of November (even beginning of December)!

Where are you staying? is there a particular area you'd like to have dinner at (Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori...)

campo di fioro

Dear Alison,

Around Campo de' Fiori there are many restaurants and cafés. One of my favourite places is just around the corner from the square called Trattoria Moderna ( They serve Mediterranean and Roman specialities, and are usually open during Christmas and New Year.

Other suggestions for dinner/lunch during your stay in Rome:
Campo de' Fiori - Ditirambo Restaurant // Zampano Restaurant // Riscioli Antico Forno
Pantheon - Del Sostegno // Armando al Pantheon
Trevi Fountain - Il Chianti // Sora Lucia (very very small but lovely!) // Trattoria della Stampa
(Off via Veneto - San Marco)

At Campo de' Fiori you must stop and have a piece of "pizza bianca" (kind of pizza bread) at Il Forno, which is just at the square. It is a bakery so they are not open in the evening.

Please note that local restaurants open for lunch at 12h00 to close at around 02h30 or 03h00 pm and reopen for dinner at approximately 07h00 pm. From 08h00 pm is peak time, so it is recommended to make reservation especially if you need a table for 5.

Depending on the weather, you might want to stop and have an ice cream at Giolitti (by Pantheon), or San Crispino (Pantheon or Trevi Fountain).

For good coffee: Casa del Café Tazza d' Oro (Pantheon) or Cafè Eustachio (behind the Pantheon).

Remember that in Italy you have two prices when you go to a café: if you stand you pay less than when you sit (ie standing at the bar, coffee or cappuccino would cost between 0,80 cents to 1,30 per person; when you sit is over 2,00 Euros and can go up to 5,00 Euros depending where you are!).

If you post me a note again around beginning of December, I should be able to let you know which restaurants will be open for Christmas.

In the meantime, I hope the info above was helpful!



Travel Tips for Rome

by h.stevenson

walk thro'the forum. To think what great feet have walked there before you !
Nero's Golden House, which has recently just reopened after 25 years. and the Doria Pamphiji Palazzo, near piazza Veneto. Absolutely spellbinding and beautiful. Just strolling thro' the streets and encountering a surprise gallery, building or palazzo around the corner. The balmy evenings again just strolling and sitting outside at a pavement cafe, and the hospitality and friendliness of the staff.

If you read only one thing, read THIS

by kdee69

I'd read all the blurb, I'd taken fellow VTers advice but NOTHING vould prepare for me for how much my feet ached each night. Invest in the best walking shoes you can find, forget trainers, your feet need support. I'd taken my trusty Doc Martens and I STILL got blisters. Also, invest in some cooling leg gel or foot cream for the end of the evening and if you're going out to eat, forget fancy shoes, you'll be desperate by then for some lovely old worn slippers!

I'm WEAK!!! Sorry Credit Card!!!

by Jmill42 about Prada

OK, so I don't have a lot of will power when it comes to thwarting shopping. Examining the lack of any space in my 2 bags, when I had left home with one empty, will attest to that fact. Prada was just one of those stores that said "Jason.... Come here... Your Credit crads arent THAT full yet..." DEVIL STORE!!!

Yes, I had to rack up a tie and shuffle off in some shoes. Come on! I had to get to that 150 Euro mark so I could get my refund!

I am weak.... Depends on your credit limit... Pretty much as close to that limit as possible.

by Audrey118

You can visit much of Rome by foot - just make sure you have proper walking shoes as some parts are cobbled stones quite difficult to walk for long!!!

Otherwise the take the trains or buses. You buy bus tickets from ATAC counters, newspaper-magazines vendors, cigarettes kiosk etc. Daily ticktes are about 80 euro cents and valid for one trip and up to 75 minutes. There is a big tickte integrated daily ticket which cost a bit more than 3 euro. When you get onto the bus and have it validated on the little machines inside. If you are caught without a valid ticket, you can be served a serious fine of a couple of hundred euro.
from the airport we took a train service right up to Termini station. It is very cheap but when we went back we decided to take a cab as we already accumulated more luggages. Taxis from city to airport cost about 12 euros and additional 1 odd euro each for bags as well and extra charges at night as well.

Typically... Roman!

by Sarita76 about IL BARROCCIO

I've been in this restaurant several times as the food is simple and good and the service is quite nice and... funny at times...
I've heard this restaurant is open since the 2nd World War, so the tradition is going on... You can choose among a wide variety of Roman and Tuscan dishes. Try "carciofi alla romana" (Roman artichokes)! I had a dish of pasta called "SCHIAFFONI AL FORNO" which means "OVEN-BAKED BIG SLAPS"... Sounds funny, doesn't it??? :)))
