Has anyone stayed at Plus Camping Roma on via Aurelia? How far is it to the major sites in Rome? and are the buses/taxis expensive into the city?
Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks
I have never stayed there, but I have certainly driven by it often enough...although I have trouble remembering exactly where it was...;-)
www.viamichelin.com shows the address (Via Aurelia, 831) as being about 1.5 kilometers west of the Largo di Boccea area. This area is a large shopping area with all sorts of stores - it's where we used to shop at grocery and department stores and do laundry and all that stuff when we lived out on the ringroad. As you head farther west along Via Aurelia from Largo di Boccea towards the campgrounds, there are stores and churches and odds and ends along the way as well as open space...what I am trying to say is that you're really not in the middle of nowhere - even Largo di Boccea is probably just a 20 minute walk, and there's stuff closer than that.
Although you could walk to a nearby hotel (there are several around) to get a cab, you're much more likely just to use public transit. See the official Rome transportation website at www.atac.roma.it (look for the English icon).
There is a Metro stop at the north end of the Largo di Boccea area (well, the Largo is a specific place, but I use the term to refer to this entire several block area of businesses surrounded by residential housing). So you could walk 20-25 minutes and get to the Metro.
On the other hand, Via Aurelia is a major street in Rome with bus service, and there are probably several lines that run down it in the direction of town. I see the 246, the 247 - hey, the 246 was the bus that we sometimes used, even back in the 70s(!) - some things don't change, I guess...in any case, I am sure there are other buses as well (you can download the route maps in PDF from the ATAC site if you want).
Look for "Fares and Tickets" and identify yourself as a "Roman Traveller" (as opposed to Latium); this will show you the price of tickets. Quite likely the best deal is the weekly CIS ticket for 16 euros. Hmmmn, I think they do the same pass for bus and Metro, so this is very useful.
All in all, this is probably pretty "urban" for a camping site...
Good Afternoon dear VT'ers,
as always, it is a pleasure to read your posts and share my ideas with you ;)
We, 4 persons, will be flying to Fiumicino Airport and will be staying for 3 nights at Rome in a campsite sitiuated in Via Aurelia (West area behind Vatican city). Full address is Via Aurelia, 831, 00163 Roma, Roma (Lazio), Italy.
We are wondering about which is the best way to arrive there with our luggage. Is it by train or is it more convenient by taxi?
If the train will cost Eur11/per person + Eur1 transfer from central Rome to campsite - Total is Eur48 (4 persons)
How much will a taxi cost right to the door of the campsite?
Thanks in advance,
The address who you mentioned is to Plus Camping Roma, where I had been last year. I recommend at you ask the campsite about they will pick you up. The link to airport transfers: http://www.plusvillages.com/HostelDirection.aspx
