cristmas weekend in Rome
I will reach Rome in December 25,
Are shops and restaurants closed at this day? Will public transportation work?
Are they re-open on the 26.
Are they open on 28 and 29 of December?
Re: cristmas weekend in Rome
Much will be open in the Center. Hotels offer pricey but good Christmas dinners. Most shops will be closed - all churches open all day. There will be many good concerts in churches. Strange, but lots of couples and families take in a movie on Christmas night. People will be out and about. The days following will be very active. You will still find cafes in the center that will be open. When you arrive, buy a copy of Roma C'e - they are a small magazine that publishes weekly all the activities/events in Rome. The big piazzas will be active - Piazzas Navona, Popolo, Campo di Fiori, Spagna. Enjoy the holiday!
Re: cristmas weekend in Rome
Especially for Chrismas weekend, you should know that TOURIST INFORMATION ASSISTANTS riding red "chariot" Segways will be in Rome center to assist YOU! Sixteen "TOURIST ANGELS“ on their Segway "chariots” will be operating in the city center from November 14 until at least Jan 8, 20010, at Termini Train Station, and both airports (Fiumicino & Ciampino).
You will see them on specially modified Segways, painted in the deep red colors that represent the city of Rome. They will be wearing yellow jumpers (or raincoats) with “Ask Me” written on the back. Your Tourist Angels will speak a variety of languages including English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and of course, Italian. Hopefully you will meet one who speaks YOUR language! They will be working seven days a week and will help provide visitors with info on the city’s top sights.
Our mayor, Mauro Cutrufo announced that a 60-strong team of angels on electric chariots will be available. As of today, November 14, only sixteen chariots are in place to help the millions of visitors who descend upon Rome each year - but that number will steadily increase. “They will speed to visitors’ rescue when they look in trouble or simply at a loss where to turn next,” said Cutrufo. They will definitely have some full plates as Rome can be a little confusing! The angels are a mobile version of Rome’s telephone service for tourist information and cultural events; the number to call, which is also printed on the side of each segway, is 060608.
Travel Tips for Rome
Take a last minute flight and...
Take a last minute flight and cheap hotel ... and walk everywhere ... take bus without knowing where you go ... the best way to discover the city !!!
Do you recognize the picture ? San Pietro on a Sunday Morning, after the Pope Mass ... I booked a hotel via Internet.
I found the name of the street on the map ... when I was in Rome, in the mentionned street, I didn't find the hotel ! Surprise, I double check and see there was another street with the same name but with another number at the end (I mean : Amadeo II --> Amadeo VIII) ... so ... a first walk in the streets of Rome ... a nice adventure !!!!!!!
Packing for Rome
For a week and a half, all I needed was one big suitcase and my school backpack. Also, a money belt to wear under my clothes because that's the best type of money-holder to avoid getting pick-pocketed. Comfortable shoes are a must if you'll be walking a lot. If you're coming in summer, it can get extremely hot (like over 40 celcius) so definitely bring your lightest summer clothes. But be aware that you have to cover your knees and shoulders to enter a church so bring appropriate clothes for that. Also, if you're going swimming in a public pool, you have to wear a bathing cap (we were told it's illegal to swim without one). If you're coming in summer, bring sunscreen since you'll definitely get burned without it. If you do get burned, aloe vera works well on sunburns. If you don't know Italian, it might be useful to bring an English (or whatever language you speak) - Italian dictionary.
Expensive labels versus Average Joe merchandise
It is fun to walk from the Spanish steps down along via dei Condotti. To window shop. Then turn onto the foot-wearing-out long stretch of Via del Corso. This street of wares fit my pocketbook better. Lots and lots of shops. What's your pleasure?
I like Playlife apparel. Hmmmm..... took me awhile to find out that it is now in stores called Replay... too much on Condotti!
average on Corso...
Tevere Passenger Boat Transportation
I have noticed that they have passenger boat transportation along the Tevere and I'm told that there are 8 (9 if you count Ostia) station stops - 1 Euro. Looks like fun!
The cruise to Ostia is only 11 Euro - There are a selection of dinner and wine cruises available also. Some are bookable on-line.
For the special tourist ride - you can sail from Sant'Angelo dock towards Tiberina Island continuing then up to Risorgimento Bridge. This is your opportunity to re-study 2750 years of history.
The service provides 4 daily departures: at 09:30, 11.00 a.m; 12.30 a.m; 04.00 p.m; 5.30 p.m
The duration of the tour is 1 hour and 10 minutes and the cost is 10 Euro.
The service operates all year round, holidays included, except for circumstances beyond control.
Best gelato in Rome... and possibly in Italy!
I've been to several gelaterie now, in Rome and in other places in Italy, and this one is the best by far! Amazingly enough, it's also the cheapest and the one who serves bigger quantities.
There are usually a lot of people waiting in line, and it's such a torture to see people coming out with ENORMOUS yummy icecreams in their hands while you wait :(
My favourite taste of all is yoghurt - perfect combination with fruit flavours such as strawberry and pineapple... The chocolate, pistaccio and caramel are also divine... I just keep coming back for more! (the last time i was in Rome, I went there almost everyday)
