Best Location

by PamelaFaye

Two 60ish ladies in Rome September. Was thinking of booking either Cicerone or Isa Hotels in Prati area. (Someone commented that this area is boring with not many restaurants etc.) After reading forums sounds like Trastevere or Pantheon areas are better. Would like area we feel comfortable walking around at night in 3,4 or star hotel. Notice a lot of good hotels around Termini area, is this area safe at night? Any suggestions on areas or comments on above hotels would be greatly appreciated. We are both good walkers, and plan to walk as much as possible.

If I were you I'd stay in the Pantheon or the Piazza Navona area. I'm sorry, I don't know anything about those two hotels. I would prefer not to be walking around the Termini area at night.

Re: Best Location

Thanks Callavetta, will look again in these areas. Are you familiar with any good hoels there?

I know the Trastevere area well. Be aware there is the cute old part near the river - which is very safe to walk around in - full of people until all hours - and the plainer area and then near Trastevere station which is quite unsavoury

some hotels - like the Hotel Trillusso say they are in Trastevere - and they are - but they are in a very plain area

I wouldnt suggest the Termini area. Iv'e stayed there and there are some great hotels and its a great central place. But you will be vulnerable, so if you're not razor sharp and on the ball with eyes in the back of your head and a spring loaded hand trap in your bag or pocket, watch out. The pickpockets and scammers can smell you coming even before you leave your home country and they'll be waiting .So take the other suggestions and pick a different area for a safe stay.

Just be aware that Trastevere can get noisy at night - people love the area. Just take some ear plugs to block the noise if you stay there. I would avoid the Termini area as stated above - daytime would not be a problem if you are alert but nighttime - I really would not suggest it.

Id recommend the Termini area also.. we stayed here last year at Notti A Roma - Via Firenze, 25

see their website if you like...;label=hotel-84624-it-YXEwLNC7nd4qbrI9BpNPUQS821852763;ws=&gclid=CIPlnaDKp5MCFQ4UiQodrU5S5A

this hotel is a bed & breakfast - nice family & hotel is near shops, cafes, post office & station & buses are only a few blocks away & was not overly busy at night but safe!!!

I personally love the Pantheon area as well as the area around Trevi Fountain. We walked the streets till midnight and never felt unsafe. We even walked late around Termini and it wasn't bad. The real crimes in Rome are the pickpocketers. Anyways, Hotel Nazionale is a nice place near Pantheon, kind of Pricey but is nice -

Thanks everyone for info. Still searching through hotels. Think I have found one then find bad reviews. Still leaning towards Hotel Isa in Prati area, Relais Fontana di Trevi or Hotel Concord. All suggestions welcome. Love reading comments and picking up tips on all these forums.
Cheers, Faye

Hotel Concord is rated approx 700 out out 1150 hotels in Rome.. so I guess its average to below average...

Hotel Isa is ranked 220 out of 1150 so I think id have to say this one... remember that this ranking is based on traveller reviews...

The Bed & breakfast that we stayed at (which I mentioned) is ranked 74 out of 592 out Id have to say that this is good judgement.. great B&B

Travel Tips for Rome

At night, you'll find many...

by Patricialuv

At night, you'll find many historic buildings light up (such as the Colisseum), and it is wonderful to walk by them. After a nice dinner, getting a yummy gelato from one of the many gelaterias available in rome makes the night complete!

isola Tiberina

by sinoda

well discovered by the locals but not quit by the tourist hords, this very prominent spot has some significant traits: little traffic noise, sunbathing opportunity midst in the city...

I speak of the river level around the island, most visitors would miss the small steps leading down to the river bank, they would just pass the hospital from one side of the river to the other.

it's the only island in the Tevere in Rome, you can't miss it.

How to plan the Rome trip.

by Vachana

The Best way to enjoy Rome is to pre plan every destination. 2 days prior to your trip plan every place you want to visit and then see the following website. In this website you have a route planner which shows you which bus you have to take from respective destinations. Just make a note of it and start your way.

And the most helpful tool for me was Google map. Big thanks for Google. Just enter the from and to address and it will help you find the route. If it is a walkable distance then go on and explore everything by walk, or see the nearest metro (in google earth) and it will help you too.

To avoid all the headaches of the tickets to all these metros and busses, just take a 4euro ticket. It is a day pass, specially for tourists, which will provide a complete free transport in all the metros, busses and trams(some lines are excluded, for more info see the same website).

Great food near Termini

by anzzz about Al 39

This is a typical Italian restaurant, serving pasta, pizza and a wide range of other types of dishes: meat, fish...

The food was really tasty and that's why we ended up here three times during our 4-day visit to Rome! Only once a friend of mine got a pasta that was too spicy and she couldn't eat it, otherwise all the food was close to perfect.

It was also cheap to eat there; pizzas in average 5 euros each, pastas around 4 euros. One litre of house wine 4 euros. Pizza Diavola, it's the best pizza I ever had.

Think twice before getting a tour guide.

by IckleHelen

A lot of people who've visted Rome advise getting a tour guide to see the Coloseum. As a result we did, but she wasn't very good. The talk was very repetative, which in some ways was a good thing because the headsets kept on cutting out. The guide also spent a lot more time showing us pictures from a book than the actual scenary around us.

There are lots of people in front of the Coloseum trying to get you to sign up with their guide. An American came up to us, and we mistakenly though she was the guide. Some of the guides seemed more enthusiastic than others. The guides usually talk for 15 minutes or so before going in to the Coloseum as people join the group. Have a listen to the guide before you hand over your money, we founds ours boring.

Getting a guide does give you the advantage of not having to wait in the 'long' queue, but so does the Rome Pass.
