Lodgings Help

by waterbomb

Hi, I will be spending 3 nights in Rome in early Dec with my girlfriend. Need some advice on lodgings as I have never been there. I have shortlisted a few and would appreciate any comments:

1. Astoria garden
2. Amalia
3. Villa Glori
4. Domus Aventina
5. Delle Vitori

Btw, the hotels should have heaters for winter, right?

RE: Lodgings Help

by waterbomb

I think I have narrowed down to the following. I have never been to Rome but does anyone know, from the address which of the following locations is a good convenient and safe base to tour Rome:-

1. Astoria Gardens - Via Vittorio Bachelet 8-10 | Town Center - Termini Station, Rome 00187, Italy

2. Amalia - Via Germanico 66, Rome 00192, Italy

3. Delle Vittori - Via Col Di Lana 24, Rome 00195, Italy

we are also planning a trip and have done extensive research. Termini area hotels are closer to the major tourist attractions, but we've read that the general area is a little more run-down than others. We decided to stay at Villa Glori.

Tours

by drdark

Anyone have info on good guided tours of Rome? We'd like to do this before setting out on our own for the first time. I read in an article that ATAC has a bus tour for only 8 Euros, but I can't read italian to find it on their web site. Any others recommended? We'll be staying at Villa Glori on Viale Vignola.

RE: Tours

by travelgourmet

One tour bus that my wife and I took in Rome was the Roma Trambus open 110. It gives newcomers a look at all the major sights and has on and off priviledges. It takes about 2 hours to complete the circle and if you get off at one or more of the stops, you can sightsee and shop and eat and get back on the open110. A open110 bus is at the stops about every 15-20 minutes, so relax, see the sights from the open top deck with a map and audio in 7 languages to see what is befor you. I have a pic and tip on my Rome transportation page. The website for the 110 is : www.trambusopen.com ...Just click on the flag of the language of choice to read all about the ride. It cost E13 for all day and they do have combination tours. Ciao

Travel Tips for Rome

Papal post

by TheWanderingCamel

If you want to post your Roman postcards from the Vatican, you can't simply pop your Italian-stamped cards into the postboxes you'll see painted in the papal colours of yellow and Marian blue outside the Vatican City post office in St Peter's Square. The Vatican issues its own stamps, usually very handsome ones in fairly small runs - they can make a good souvenir - and you must use these. Similarly, you can't use stamps you buy at the Vatican City to post mail from the rest of Rome or Italy.

The Vatican's Post Office is so efficient many Romans make the trip to the Vatican just to post their mail; postcards you send from here could even beat the usual fate of postcards and arrive home before you do.

There are three Post Offices at the Vatican - one is on the right hand side of the Square as you face the Basilica, in the middle of the colonnade, another is on the left hand side next to the steps going up to the Basilica and the third is actually inside the Vatican City near Porta Sant' Anna. If you tell the Swiss Guard at the Chiesa Sant'Anna you want to use the Post Office, he'll point it out to you. Use the ATM outside the Post Office and you can practise your Latin - it's one of the language options you can choose!

Santa Maria, Trastevere. ...

by acemj

Santa Maria, Trastevere. Trastevere is the neighborhood just on the other side of the Tiber's second big bend toward the southern end of the city. I spent an evening walking around the neighborhood, but a cold rain prevented me from really enjoying the area. Trastevere literally means 'across the river,' and according to some locals I spoke with it's one of the better areas in Rome to find good, authentic food. Santa Maria is the area's biggest church.

Taxis To Rome from the Airport

by magyarozag

Once you have disembarked your flight and have come into the airport there are two ways to get to Rome(You cannot walk). One is the Train but they aren't as reliable and can be dirty. The other is a taxi. You would think they would be extortionate prices but they aren't. A man may approach you and ask or you may need to go to the desk. Either way you get to Rome. But if you take the taxi it will cost around 15 Euros( could be more or could be less depends on traffic) and he will give you a little piece of paper and if you present it to your return taxi driver you get 5 Euros off.

Trastevere -Local, fun & welcoming

by eileencat1 about Alle Fratte di Trastevere

This was a great recommendation from a Fodors poster. The owner an older Italian man very lively and welcoming and his wife is from New Jersey but has been living in Rome many years. They have great team work and make you feel at home. I had the smoked salmon pasta with vodka and cream as a first and grilled lamb chops as my secondo mmmmm!

Crawl around in the graves... er, catacombs...

by PartyRambo

I've never been in catacombs before, and thought it would be a unique side trip. Throughout the city, ancient graves lie, some open to the elements, carved in the rock underground.
Most now have buildings - churches - built above them - I imagine that was the plan - and although the ground wasn't "prepared" - no concrete poured, no coffins built, just slots carved into the walls of trenches dug deep down - there isn't quite as much damp unpleasantness as one might expect..
Not for the claustrophobic, though - I visited the Church of Sant'Agnese Fuori LeMura, and most of the paths are only wide enough to walk comfortably (basketball players need not bother entering - the ceiling's too low!)
It costs a small fee to join a guided tour every 30 minutes or so, and photographs weren't allowed, and although I usually obey such rules, I more often try to sneak a pic or two in - but a flash would have been necessary, making a secret photo not so secret, so I didn't try...
