just wondering

by shebie226

Im on a tour in rome which takes me around the Colosseum and through the roman forum, not got time to stop here. However do get abit of free time we get dropped of and picked up in piazza navona. We are going to the pantheon and the trevi fountain.

So my questions are

Is there food vendors in either piazza navona, near the pantheon or trevi fountain selling slices of pizza etc?

Also is there anywhere near the above where i can get a model of the Colosseum, if so how much can i expect to pay?

Hello,

To answer your first question about the slices of pizza, you will find it near the Trevi Fountain but I don't recall seeing food vendors near the Piazza Navona. I remember them having restaurants in the piazza itself where there are pizzas but I don't think I've noticed any places where you can just buy and eat as you go. Funny thing is that I was trying to find that pizza vendor that they showed in "Everybody Loves Raymond" but never found it =)

As for the model of the Colosseum, I remember them selling it right outside the Colosseum. There were carts there that would sell the cheap versions of the Colosseum -- I don't remember the price though.

The poster before me is absolutely correct. You will not find any street vendors selling pizza slices in Piazza Navona or Piazza della Rotunda.
There are several snack bars near Fontana di Trevi where you should be able to just buy a pizza slice. I think you should also be able to find street vendors at the Piazza Venezia end of Via Fori Imperiale

Just about all the places that sell postcards etc will be more than happy to also sell you a model of the Colosseum and just about anything else too - price varies depending on size/quality.

Enjoy Roma - ciao

Fountain in Pincio Park

by sandysmith

Rome has many beautiful famous fountains but some of the lesser known ones are just as interesting and less crowded. This was one in the Park near the Pincio hill and the sculpture of the horses were amazing.

All paths lead to Termini (the main train station) including the new Leonardo Express train from the Airport.
There are two Metro Lines. Line A (red) runs East-West past the Spanish Steps and Vatican City while Line B (blue) runs North-South past the Colleseum and the Roman Forum. They intersect at the main train station, Termini.

Great "Sweets Parlor"

by jhoolko about Della Palma Gelateria, Caffetteria, i Dolciumi

So there's gelato everywhere in Italy, and tons of them are really good. And if you're not a gelato snob or specialist, many places will satisfy your gelato craving. I am neither specialist, nor snob, I just really like anything sweet in a cone. So, though I have been told the quality of Della Palma is very good, and though it tasted very good to me, I can't really make any claims about its quality or authenticity. However, their selection of flavors is absolutely incredible. It took me at least five minutes to decide what I wanted, and there were so many other things I wish I could have tried. Flavors you never even knew existed will be found under the glass counter at Della Palma, and they will pretty much all be delicious. Ask for a taste if you can't decide! And if you've out-gelato-ed yourself, explore the rest of the "sweets parlor," as they call themselves. The shop is chock-full of every sweet little delicacy, Italian or otherwise, and there is surely something in there to satisfy any sweet tooth. There are also some great gifts. Strange as it sounds, I picked up a tiny bouquet of multi-colored flowers made of glossy jordan almonds that now rests happily on my desk. So stop in, and at least take a look around. There's something for everyone here. Try the Bounty flavor, it's something like a Mounds bar, with chocolate, coconut, and big chunks of actual candy bar!

Coloseum an Architectural Marvel!

by cocolopez

The coloseum was probably my favorite site in Rome. It is a vast shell of what used to be a glorious place. When you compare it to the museums and other lively and wonderful places in Rome, the coloseum and the Foro Romano are quiet, sort of desolate, even with tourists around. So everything is sort of left to your imagination. I also loved the fact that there were a few cats roaming around kind of keeping a watchful eye on the place.
