    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    Hello guys. I'm describing my experience in Rome hoping that it will help someone avoid being robbed. So I was in Rome alone, walking and sightseeing. I was near Colliseum when some guy came to me and started to talk to me. He was quite nice and I'm an open person, so when he asked if he can join me on with sightseeing, I agreed. It was about 8pm,...

    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is… The old adage is a good one to remember when in Rome and dealing with some of the shadier people that prey on naive tourists. Hubby and I have heard many tales of tourist woes and several friends have had things stolen in Rome. So mentally we knew the risks. We travel a lot and think of...

    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    8.a.m on the June 13-2014: I arrived at Roma Tiburtina station. got onto the Florence-bound Italo train and put my bag on the rack of coach number 6. When the train was still standing at the platform, a man (tall and not very dark) passing by our seats. From nowhere some Euro coins were seen on the coach floor. The same man was asking around whose...

  • Traffic

    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    We are taught to walk on the sidewalk and not cross except at the striped pedestrian crossings. In fact, here in the States legal protection is related to using pedestrian crosswalks. Pedestrians do NOT have the right of way here, so don't try to play chicken with a Roman driver. In Italy, it seems to me, traffic signs seem to be advisory only!...

    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    I was photographing the Trevi Fountain at night with my college classmates, for which you need a tripod to mount your camera on as there are slow shutter speeds used. There was absolutely no problem using them during the day time and for the first 20 minutes of the night shoot, then all of a sudden this little police man with the worst attitude...

    Rome Warnings and Dangers

    If you are in a wheelchair - Rome is possible but it is very hair raising. Cobblestones are enough to kill you. Tree roots. Crowds of people determined not to lose their place in the queue. Hills! Ancient sites do not do wheelchair accessible very well. Stepping out to cross a Roman street is always exciting - but when you have a down ramp on one...

    Split Mountain, or Montagne Spaccata as it is known to the locals and the neighbouring Grotta del Turco are sights to behold. Legend has it that at the time of the crucifiction the mountain split in two. Half way down this staircase is the mark of a hand, said to be that of a Turkish sailor who didn't believe the event. At another spot shows an...
