Has anyone stayed at the Villa Maria Regina, which is owned by The Sisters of Notre Dame,We are staying there in late July and wish to know especially how easy or hard it is to reach the centre of Rome by Bus.....Thank-You.

You're talking about the hotel at Via Della Camilluccia 687, right? This is about 5-7 kilometers north of the Vatican, so you'll be wanting to get familiar with Rome's transportation systems.

www.atac.roma.it is the official website for Rome's transportation systems. Note that you can use it to calculate the "best" way to get from A to B. Hmmn, interesting, but the results are different in the English version and the Italian version...the English version keeps assuming that the building number is "1" not "687".

If you want, you can download the nearly 10 Megabyte PDF map of the city...

Thanks for the tips....Have you stayed at the hotel?

No, I lived in other parts of town. I wasn't in the north end very much at all...once I went up to visit a friend at the Hilton on Monte Mario, but that's about it. The advantage of having a car there (before they started limiting traffic in the city center) was that I got to see a fair amount of the city...

Travel Tips for Rome

Sunday Best isn't necessary

by jenn_d

..but to gain admittance to many Roman churches and basilicas you must be "modestly" dressed. This translates into no shorts or shirt skirts and no bare shoulders.

Small signs placed about St. Peter's Square advise visitors of the guidelines.

The English Cemetery

by craic

The Cimitero Acattolico. Usually called the English Cemetery or the Protestant Cemetery, even though it was for anyone from anywhere who had to be buried outside of the city walls because they were of the wrong religion. So there are all sorts here, not just English, not just Protestants. I suppose that is why Gramsci, the famous Italian communist is buried here.
This is one of my favourite places in Rome. It never seems to get crowded, and it is a cool, shaded haven where you can wander and consider mortality and such.
It has famous graves, Keats has two, one with his mortal remains and the famous incognito inscription about his name being writ in water, and a more elaborarte but empty sepulchre. It has the heart of Shelley, and Gramsci - oh and lots and lots.
It has a nice collection of, mostly tortoiseshell, cats.
Entrance by donation. Usual sort of opening hours.
It is just behind the pyramid Cestius ordered built for himself so he would be remembered. And, you know, that little scheme worked well.
By the Porta Sao Paolo, which is where over 500 partisans died repulsing the German army from the city in 1943.
And close by the Pyramide metro station. But you can get a bus there too.
Check the link below for transport details etc.
Do go - it's great.

BTW Henry James wrote that Daisy Miller is buried here - but I searched and searched for her grave and couldn't find it. LOL

Leonardo express

by tim07

The trains run non stop between Fiumicino Airport & Roma Termini railway station providing some 24000 seats per day. The train has large spaces for the luggage & the carriages are air conditioned. Trains run from approx 6 am to 23 pm daily. They leave the airport at 5 mins & 35 mins past the hour. They leave platform 25 at Termini at 22 mins & 52 mins past the hour. Journey time is just over 30 mins.

It can be quite crowded as you board the train & steps up to the carriage quite steep. A friendly stranger who's already boarded may take your luggage & lift it on to the train for you. Once you've boarded the same friendly stranger will demand some Euros as payment & become agressive if you don't pay.

One way tickets cost 11 Euros and can be bought at self service machines at the airport & railway station. These machines have instructions in various languages & take Euros or credit cards. Remember to validate the ticket by getting it stamped in one of the many yellow machines found on the platform.

Nice lunch spot

by Rhondaj about Leonardo Pizzeria

Being that it wasn't so stinkin' hot this day, we ate outside. There were shady umbrellas and since we sat by the wall, there was a grate from the basement by my side, where cool air soothed my weary feet and legs--ahhhh.... oh, the pizza was good too. Service-fine. The indoor area looked inviting, but sitting outside on the piazza was a nice people watching lunch place. Pizza-just the right size.

Coloseum

by tompt

Building of the Roman Colosseum, or the Flavian Amphitheater, began by the Roman Emperor Vespasian in AD 72. It was inaugurated by his son Titus in 80 AD, though not completed untill the reign of Domitian (AD 81-96).
Its sole purpose was to hold Gladiatorial games to keep the Roman masses entertained. Free bread would keep them fed and therefore, it was hoped, they would not rise up or conspire against the Imperial government.

The building is elliptical and covers an area of about 6 acres. It has four levels the first three layers are in the three classical styles of architecture: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. The top layer had square openings. The whole building was constructed out of stone, concrete, brick and marble, Most of the marble was stripped from the building in the middle ages and the stone used for the construction of St Peter and other prominent buildings.

The Colosseum over 80 entrances and could seat over 50 000 people, divided into four levels of seats. The lower levels were for emperors and the upper class.
Spectators could be sheltered by canvass in case the sun was to hot. The canvass was pulled over the top of the coloseum.

The arena was made from wood and covered in sand. Today yopu will only see the subterranean passages where prisoners, gladiators and animals were kept immediately before their appearance in the Games. Gladiators were expected to fight to the death before each performance they would salute the Emperor with the famous saying “Caesar those who are about to die salute you!”
The last Gladiatorial displays were banned in AD 438, the last animal show was in AD 523.

Much of the marble was looted, when the medieval Popes put classical buildings under their personal protection the Colosseum was saved from total destruction.

We visited the inside of the Coloseum, and were somewhat disappointed by the sights. Nothing indicated the former seats and there were a lot of scaffolding supporting the rubble. Nevertheless more pictures in our Coloseum travelogue.
