    Rome: readers – tips, recommendations and travel advice, travel to rome.#Travel

    Rome: readers’ tips, recommendations and travel advice

    Not everyone is fortunate enough as to have a family relative who is a priest in Rome to be their guide. Our recommended guesthouse is the Cielo Vaticano (cielovaticanoguesthouse.com) . This gem only has four rooms, is inexpensive and welcoming. St Peter’s and the Vatican Museum are easy walking distance. It is an effortless amble to Ottaviano Station. Rome’s metro is convenient and easy to use.

    Our advice is to see Rome by night – midnight and beyond. View the Basilica through the keyhole at the Piazza del Cavalieri, stroll around the fountains on the Piazza Navona (left) and finish at the Old Bridge Gelateria.

    For a daytime trip, head up the Appian Way to Domino Quo Vadis to view Christ’s footsteps in marble and on to the Catacombs of St Sebastiano for an informative trip underground. At lunchtime we can recommend Pizzeria San Marco Via Sardegna and for evening fare with atmosphere Il Postiglione Via Aurelia. Both are inexpensive but of excellent quality.

    Craig Findlater, from Hants, wins a wildlife trip to India

    More advice from readers

    Visiting the Colosseum can take ages due to long queues. To avoid these visit the Forum, and in there is a pay desk to a small site that is infrequently visited. However, a ticket for this site also gets you into the Colosseum, so you can sail past the queues and enter via the automatic ticket barrier.

    E Trzebinski, Surrey

    Last August my wife and I went back to Rome to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. We recommend the Leonardo Express. The train only takes 30 minutes from Fiumicino Airport to Termini Railway Station. Exploring Rome is like peeling an onion – layers of history are superimposed. Nowhere is this clearer than in the ancient Basilica of San Clemente.

    Tucked away in a side street 300 yards from the Colosseum, this little gem was a highlight of our visit. At street level you enter a 12th-century church. Excavating work, begun in the 19th century, uncovered a 4th-century church underneath. Deeper still is evidence of ancient Roman buildings, including a Temple of Mithras. Visitor information and access is wholly sensitive to the treasures and frescoes preserved there.

    For lunch, we found bruschetta to die for at La Fraschetta – just off Piazza Navona, where all the restaurants were twice the price.

    Christopher Scott, Cornwall

    For the best view of the Forum, go up the little road next to the Capitoline Museums, past the Rock of Tarpeia; then go over to the Palatine, the hill where all the top families and the emperors lived.

    On the other side of the main road are Trajan’s Markets, an amazingly modern-looking brick-built shopping complex, 2,000 years old, and you’ll probably be the only visitors there. Visit the lovely Galleria Doria Pamphili, usefully open on Mondays.

    In Trastevere, the church of Santa Cecilia is beautiful, and has a Roman villa below it in which wedding ceremonies can be held. And to finish off, after a short train ride, Ostia Antica is a huge, fascinating site, as good as Pompeii, but without the crowds.

    Elizabeth Mumford, East Sussex

    It is 50 years since I was in Rome but the Palazzo Doria out of all the many things I saw took me back to a particular moment in history. It was not just the frighteningly intense portrait by Velázquez of Pope Innocent X with his unnervingly penetrating eyes, and other works in the wonderfully diverse collection, but the part that the palazzo has played in 20th-century history. The palazzo looks out on to a pocket-sized square and there,

    on an upper floor, is a tiny balcony with a block of stone on the ground. This was where Mussolini once stood to harangue the crowds below.

    William Garnermann, Co Armagh

    Central Rome is relatively compact and accessible on foot. It is also quite hilly. Use the lie of the land by starting your sightseeing day at a high point and strolling downhill rather than embarking on an unplanned and exhausting route march.

    A personal favourite is to start at the Galleria Borghese on Pinciano. Book a two-hour time slot at 9am or 11am. The art collection is breathtaking and the setting sublime. Then stroll through Giardini Borghese, pausing perhaps for a cappuccino and to enjoy the panoramic views of the city before dropping down to Piazza del Popolo.

    This vast open space offers ad-lib street entertainment and people watching. Your route becomes flat as you follow Babuino past the Spanish Steps. Five mionures’ walk later your are at the Trevi Fountain – complete with three coins at the ready.

    Clive Knox, Somerset

    As a contrast to Rome’s history and culture, take a train to Castel Gandolfo, where the Pope’s summer residence is situated.

    Next door, in a 19th-century building built on three levels, there is a marvellous restaurant named Pagnanelli, its terraces overlooking Lake Albano, which lies in the mouth of a volcanic crater. The traditional cuisine is mainly sourced from the family farm, and the cellars, built into the volcanic cliff face, house thousands of bottles of wine and grappa. The knowledgeable sommeliers will give you a tour of the cellars to choose the wine to drink with your meal.

    If you book in advance, you can arrange a wine tasting that marries a selection of fine wines with local dishes.

    Janet Rees, Essex

    Visit the Protestant cemetery via Caio Cestio 6 (metro Piramide). Shelley and others are there and the inscriptions are inspiring. A wonderful experience. Then do St Paul Outside the Walls, a few stops up the metro line from Piramide and truly exceptional (Via Ostiense 186). Go to the Spanish Steps metro, walk down the Via Condotti across the river to Gran Caffè Esperia, on the Lungotevere dei Mellini. Best pastries and coffee in Rome.

    For lunch, do the Edy at Vicolo del Babuino 4, which is excellent. Get there for 12.50pm for lunch or book. They will split a dish between two, so try the courgette flowers and prawns this way; for the main course I’d recommend the turbot (rombo), which is excellent.

    David Wilkinson, by email

    Everyone ventures west of the Tiber to visit St Peter’s and The Vatican, but linger a while. From St Peter’s Square take a right and make the gentle ascent to Mount Gianicolo for the most spectacular views across Rome. It was on my third visit to the city that I discovered this viewpoint, and now it will always be a first port

    of call. From here, the crazy collage that is Rome stretches out before you.

    You won’t tire of the view, but when you feel the need to move on, stroll down the Via Garibaldi, to find yourself in Trastevere, the pulse-beating heart of the real Rome, with its authentic squares and bars, and the exquisite church of St Maria. And before you return east across the river, visit the Villa Farnesina. With stunning frescoes, by a host of artists, most notably Raphael, this must be the most undervalued property in Rome. It’s gorgeous, so don’t miss it.

    Sally Golanski, Surrey

    Ridiculously cheap, wonderfully old fashioned and swarming with loyal locals, the Fiaschetteria Marini wine bar in Rome’s Via Cadorna is a gem. In the hands of the Marini family for nearly 90 years and with a decor that has changed little, the welcome is warm and friendly and the owners are anxious to please all who enter either for a glass of wine or a plate of mama’s pasta.

    Tuscan wine on tap is half a euro per glass, but there is a vast selection of wines racked on the walls, each bottle tagged and priced at silly prices, to drink in or take out.

    Basic no-frills Rome specialities are on the menu – try the calves liver and onions, followed by home-made zuppa inglese and enjoy the biggest bargain that the city can offer and all away from the madding crowds in the quiet Via Cadorna.

    Huw S Thomas, Carms

    Take a subway train ride to the Piramide neighbourhood. Once there you’re greeted with Piramide Cestia, an ancient pyramid built on the corner of two of the most ancient roads in all of Rome. Then walk two blocks to the north-west to what’s colloquially known as the Last Trattoria, named thus because it was the last to open it’s doors to foreigners.

    For a long time, tables at Felice a Testaccio (feliceatestaccio.it) were only reserved for those who spoke Italian and booked ahead. Even though they claim you still have to make telephone bookings, if you arrive at opening time you can just walk in for some of the best seasonal and authentic Italian flavours. As is a tradition in Roman cuisine, they serve a different menu every day of the week with the classics available daily.

    Anthony Bourdain s Rome Travel Tips #travel #to #brazil

    #rome travel
    #

    Visit the Eternal City

    Anthony Bourdain has a little over 30 hours to experience the “Eternal City” of Rome. He crisscrosses the city by bus, by Fiat, and by Vespa determined to get his fill of Italian cuisine before his flight out. Before your next visit, check out some of Tony s tips from The Layover: Rome episode.

    The Pace of Rome

    “Ideally, you visit Rome slowly. You sit, you stroll, you take it slow and as it comes. You don’t go to see stuff, you let it slip up on you — one piazza, one fountain, one amazing structure at a time. That would be the best-case scenario.”

    Airport Transportation

    “Fiumicino Airport has the usual assortment of transportation options. The easiest but pricier would be a taxi straight into town to your hotel. That s a flat fare of about 60 bucks. There are shuttle buses for about 15 bucks, which should take about 40 minutes, but traffic can be unpredictable. I opt for the express train this time around: $20 and only 30 minutes. It’s supposed to be fast, efficient, easy, but honestly as I stare down another walkway, I begin to regret my decision.”

    Rome s Train Station

    “Termini station is the massive transportation hub of Rome, and it s the center of suck-dom as far as I’m concerned.”

    Public Transportation

    “In Rome, you can for 1 euro, get 75 minutes of unlimited access to any of Rome s many means of transportation the metro, for instance. However, there are only 2 lines that crisscross the city like an X, meeting at — guess where? — Termini station. There are also buses and trams above ground. Not a big difference, just depends where you’re going.”

    Where to Stay

    “I suggest the Centro Storico, or historical center of the city, so you’re within walking distance of all the good stuff that you want to at least lay eyes on. Hotels are expensive, so book early if you re looking for lower-priced penziones as they tend to fill up quickly. On the other hand, if you want to blow it out and live large, and pay bigtime for the privilege, the Hotel de Russie is swankadelic, discreet, and it s right down the street (yet comfortably insulated from) the Spanish steps. But again, it’s expensive.”

    What to Bring

    “The toilet paper in this country is not the fluffiest, it’s very abrasive like I m sitting on steel wool every time I sit down. Here s a traveler’s tip bring your own double-ply.”

    What Not to Do

    “You could have that ubiquitous hotel breakfast, I guess. But you are seriously a (bleep) idiot if you do. You will be needing that real estate for good food, not room-temperature eggs.”

    A Proper Roman Breakfast

    “No eggs, no pancakes you save room for lunch. It’s cappuccino, and maybe a cornetto. That’s it.

    For a Snack

    “What s a Roman specialty you might have for a light lunch or a snack? Well, one might head off to the Pigneto district to score yourself some porchetta.”

    Porchetta

    “The pride of Rome, porchetta, is a whole deboned pig stuffed with herbs, spit-roasted and generally served with a pitcher of ice-cold Italian beer.”

    For a Picnic

    “Italian deli/groceries, known as alimentari or salumeria, are the perfect place to stock up on some of Rome’s best flavors. Procured, stored, sliced and solid with passion and real craftsmanship. You pretty much can t go wrong with takeout like this. And of course, there are fountains and piazzas around every corner where you can sit down and eat.”

    The Best Gelato

    “There are, of course, gelaterias (good and not so good) everywhere in Italy, but it’s worth looking for a great one. Gelateria dei Gracchi in the Prati district is probably the best of the best.”

    An Italian Cocktail

    “When making negronis at home: 1/3 high-end gin, 1/3 Campari and 1/3 sweet vermouth. I don t really like gin, I don t really like Campari, and I don t like sweet vermouth but together your friend. The count negroni, it is said, invented this fine cocktail in Florence. Unsatisfied with the level of alcohol in his Americano cocktail of Campari and sweet vermouth, he suggested his waiter ratchet up the danger level with the addition of gin. Thus was born a classic.”

    Why to Rent a Vespa

    “You can speed through traffic, you’re out there in the world you can actually smell it, feel it, wind in your hair. OK, it’s a little more dangerous, but think about it you can also pull over as the instinct or impulse strikes you. You know, it s not a big commitment to park. It’s cheap. It’s the most totally awesome way to get around Rome. Five times as fast, 5 times as flexible, 5 times as fun why wouldn t you do this?”

    Tony s Final Bite in Rome

    “Cacio e pepe. You could get it anywhere, but you want it good. This place, named strangely enough Cacio e Pepe. does it good. I love this (bleep). Looks like just some plain pasta with a little black pepper and cheese and it basically is. But, you have no idea how good that is.”

    The One Thing to Do in Rome

    “If you do one thing in Rome, one thing. Forget about Vatican City, all the rest, one thing: Find a place that is guaranteed by locals to make good cacio e pepe, get yourself a nice jug of wine and eat.”

    Rome Travel Guide

    Credit.

    iStock

    You don’t get to be the Eternal City without keeping some pace with the modern world. Sure, the warmest of the European capitals has plenty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel—but when you visit Rome, the most irresistible quality may be how its modern-day trattorias and sleek coffee bars happily co-exist with ancient treasures, and how even hallowed spots like the Pantheon come to life with chatter and cappuccino drinkers after dark. Read on in this Rome travel guide to bring the millennia and marvels of this city into focus.

    Things Not to Miss in Rome

    • Tossing a few coins to get acquainted with the Fountains

    • Walk through Ancient Rome

    • Enjoying a cappuccino (or several) at a variety of coffee bars (don’t forget to tip)

    • Tucking into a Roman-style pizza, followed by a gelato

    • Explore Vatican City

    • Browse the cutting-edge fashion boutiques in the “new” Monti (formerly ancient Rome’s red-light district)

    When to Go to Rome

    Most people travel to Rome in the summer, but keep in mind that it gets hot and crowded in the afternoons this time of year. Some other seasonal factors to consider for your Rome travel: Spring and fall—March to May and September to November—are the best times for sightseeing, since the temperatures are mild. Winter can be chilly, but not frigid, and it a little better for avoiding the crowds.

    DON’T MISS

    Rome Travel Tips

    ssuni/iStockphoto.com

    Keep in Mind.

    • Il Conto, Per favore If you need the bill at a restaurant, be persistent yet pleasant in asking. Life moves slower in Roma, so asking for your check once doesn’t necessarily mean it s on the way.
    • Ditch the diet This is Rome, home of fettuccine, ravioli, bruschetta, cappuccino enough said.
    • Speak Italiano When in Rome, do as the Romans do and at least try to speak a little Italian. Hello is ciao. please is per favore. and thank you is grazi .

    Rome, the city of seven hills, enjoyed a mythic beginning. Romulus and Remus twin brothers who were nursed by a she-wolf and fathered by a war god reportedly founded the Eternal City. And although historians are a little skeptical about this epic entry into the world, most travelers are absolutely certain that there is something magical about Rome. Whether it’s the mystery of nearby Vatican City or the ghosts of the Colosseum. an afternoon caff on Piazza Navona or a piled-high plate of pasta at a trattoria, Roma is sure to enchant.

    Italy’s capital city, Rome is also known for a history that dates back to the eras of Octavian, Julius Caesar and Hadrian, among others. Left behind are structures like the Pantheon. the Roman Forum and dozens of churches, among other historic gems. Art enthusiasts will relish the trove of art housed at the Vatican Museums. and foodies will enjoy the splendid Italian fare, not to mention the gelato. And though its momentous past is the focus for many vacationers, Rome is also a fast-paced, modern and relevant city, with gleaming designer storefronts, sleek hotels and cutting-edge restaurants.

    How To Save Money in Rome

    • Buy the Roma Pass This money-saving pass gives you free or reduced admission to museums, discounts on certain exhibits, and free travel on public transportation for three days.
    • Church hop Many of Rome s little churches hold beautiful treasures and many are free to visit.
    • Visit on Sunday If you plan your trip over the last Sunday of the month, you can visit two of Rome’s most popular museums the Vatican Museums and the Musei Capitolini for free.

    Rome Culture Customs

    Trying to look like a resident isn’t difficult, especially if your own wardrobe is filled with high-end designer labels. Italian women strive for a sultry look, wearing tight-fitting dresses, tops and pants, accompanied by a pair of steep heels. Men wear immaculately cut suits. On the streets, snug jeans and fitted shirts are the norm for both men and women.

    Rome Dining

    Rome is overflowing with restaurants, from trattorias that cook up family recipes spanning generations to fusion restaurants that plate up the latest culinary trend. Don’t miss out on Italian specialties scampi alla griglia (grilled shrimp), carciofi alla romana (artichokes with white wine, mint and garlic) and Saltimbocca alla romana (veal with ham, cheese and sage), among other regional and country-wide specialties. Restaurants’ wine lists are also not to be ignored and neither are the gelato shops.

    Rome

    The capital city in the land of Leonardo, Michelangelo and the popes is today a living museum with gorgeous artwork, amazing architecture and inspiring ancient sites — yet at the same time it is alive and vibrant in a 21st-century way. It’s an unforgettable city to visit, and we’ll warn you right now: once you’ve experienced it, you’ll want to come back for more.

    One of our favorite things to do here is walk and ogle. On a recent visit, we took one day to do the route from Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica, with its jaw-dropping art and statuary (not to mention religious significance), to Via del Corso, where our pursuit of the latest Italian fashions was more than fulfilled amidst the well-dressed crowd of Roman shoppers. And then the next day we went on an ancient history quest past ruins and columns, traversing the same streets Julius Caesar strode (and rode) to the Colosseum, where gladiators once battled. Then, walking on, we were awed by the Pantheon, the well-preserved ancient symbol of Rome and now a great hangout spot.

    Photos: 11 Unforgettable Italy Experiences

    Many first-time visitors, envisioning Rome as big and congested, will be surprised by the scenic layout, with its famous seven hills and the Tiber River running through the city. But your senses may be shocked by the general energy and hustle and bustle. With cars, taxis and scooters roaring here and there, crossing the street can be a challenge (don’t worry, there are quiet piazzas aplenty with lovely cafes where you can get away from it all and unwind).

    The food is, of course, wonderful — we can’t eat enough pasta — and the spirit of la dolce vita (the good life) abounds. Whenever we do such a quest in Rome, we do regular gelato stops (try the yummy pine nut flavor) or coffee breaks because “when in Rome. ” And the shopping scene serves up Prada, Gucci, Armani and more (high style can be found in more affordable brands like Furla as well). What could be better than that?

    Related Articles

    While millions of international visitors flock to Rome each year, the Eternal City marches to its own drum. No amount of foreign tourism seems to affect Rome s distinct atmosphere and culture; on the contrary, visitors should be prepared to yield to Roman customs, as touring etiquette is clearly defined.

    Language

    While many people in Rome speak English, don t assume the person you are approaching with a question does. In general, Romans are a proud people and some may think you re rude to ask them a question in English. Use an Italian phrase book to ask touristy questions. Most natives are delighted by foreigners attempts to speak Italian — chances are, when you try to ask a question in Italian, the locals will smile and grant you permission to speak in English.

    Introducing Rome

    A heady mix of haunting sights, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy ‘s Eternal City is one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring capitals.

    Artistic Riches

    Few cities can rival Rome’s astonishing artistic heritage. Throughout history, the city has starred in the great upheavals of Western art, drawing the top artists of the day and inspiring them to push the boundaries of creative achievement. The result is a city awash with priceless treasures. Ancient statues adorn world-class museums, Byzantine mosaics and Renaissance frescoes dazzle in the city’s art-rich churches, baroque facades flank medieval piazzas. Walk around the centre and without even trying you’ll come across masterpieces by the giants of the artistic pantheon – sculptures by Michelangelo, canvases by Caravaggio, Raphael frescoes and fountains by Bernini.

    Historical Legacies

    The result of 3000 years of ad hoc urban development, Rome’s cityscape is an exhilarating spectacle. Ancient icons such as the Colosseum. Roman Forum and Pantheon recall Rome’s time as the fearsome hub of the Roman Empire, the caput mundi (capital of the world), while catacombs and clandestine churches hark back to the early days of Christianity. Lording it over the Vatican. St Peter’s Basilica is the greatest of the city’s monumental basilicas, a towering masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Elsewhere, ornate piazzas and elaborate churches add a baroque flourish to the city’s historic streets.

    Living the Life

    A trip to Rome is as much about lapping up the dolce vita lifestyle as gorging on art and culture. It’s about relaxing into the city’s Mediterranean rhythms and idling around the picturesque streets. Whiling away hours at streetside cafes and people-watching on pretty piazzas are an integral part of the Roman experience. The tempo rises as the heat of the day fades into the evening cool and the fashionably dressed aperitivo (aperitif) crowd descends on the city’s bars and cafes. Restaurants and trattorias hum with activity and cheerful hordes mill around popular haunts before heading off to cocktail bars and late-night clubs.

    Roman Feasting

    Eating out is one of Rome’s great pleasures and the combination of romantic al fresco settings and superlative food is a guarantee of good times. For contemporary fine dining and five-star wine there are any number of refined restaurants, but for a truly Roman meal search out the city’s boisterous pizzerias and convivial neighbourhood trattorias. These are where the locals go to dine with friends and indulge their passion for thin, crispy pizzas, humble but delicious pastas, and cool white wine from the nearby Castelli Romani hills.

    Why I Love Rome

    By Duncan Garwood, Writer

    I’m a walker and I love exploring Rome on foot, losing myself in the tangled lanes of the historic centre and neighbourhoods like Trastevere and Monti. I love the aroma of freshly ground coffee that comes out of the cafes and sharing a carafe of local wine over lunch in a trattoria. I enjoy the gruff humour of the locals and the way they have an opinion on everything. I’m also a history buff, and after 15 years in the city, I still get a kick every time I see the Colosseum or spy St Peter’s dome looming over the skyline.

    Rome in a nutshell

    Ratings: 5 / 5 |

    Rome is without doubt one the most beautiful cities in the world; every year millions of tourists come from around the world to admire the treasures and masterpieces of Roman art and architecture .

    But a trip to the Eternal City can be eternally confusing for first-time visitors. This guide will make it easier to uncover Rome. offering lots of practical advice that will help you discover and enjoy the city in all its glory .

    1. Planning your travel in Rome

    Because Rome is such a huge tourist draw, choose the date for your trip carefully. The best times of the year to visit are April, May, and late September through October. In the depths of summer, the heat and the crowds make the city nearly unbearable. August in particular should be avoided because this is the month that the entire country of Italy seems to go on vacation. Traveling too late or too early in the year can also be risky because the opening hours for many attractions are shorter, and some are closed completely.

    Airfares typically drop quite a bit when “shoulder season” begins in the early autumn, making this the optimal time to visit in my book. The days are still warm, the nights are slightly cool, and the tour groups and student mobs have mostly disappeared.

    If you can plan to stay as long as a week, you won’t run out of things to do and you’ll still feel like you’re leaving too soon. But if your time is limited, allow at least four days to see all of Rome ‘s major attractions. If you try to cram the entire city into a two-day span and do nothing but run from place to place furiously snapping pictures, you’ll only be cheating yourself. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day and it can’t be seen in one, either.

    2. Arriving in Rome

    Rome ‘s Fiumicino airport is 19 miles outside of the city. A train station is located inside and you can travel straight to Station Termini near the center of town for about $12 per person, but you’ll then need to find a way to get to your hotel. If you’re carrying a lot of luggage or just want to make things easier on yourself, take a cab or have your hotel arrange to have a hired car pick you up. Either option will cost around $50 but the no-stress factor makes it worth the extra money. Renting your own car is always an option, but even if you’re planning to tour other parts of Italy I wouldn’t advise driving in or near Rome unless you have nerves of steel and the skills and reflexes of a professional racecar driver.

    3. Sleeping in Rome

    To plunge fully into the essence of Rome, I highly recommend staying in a hotel where you can simply walk out your door and into the heart of the city. Of course, the closer to the attractions you are the more you’ll pay, but trust me, it’s worth it. Before you make a reservation, look at a map of Rome and confine yourself to hotels that are east of the Tiber River and west of Station Termini. Also be aware that distances on a map might not be as close as they appear ; I once stayed at a hotel in the fashionable Via Veneto area thinking that it would be fairly close to all the major attractions, but in reality it took nearly half an hour to reach anything at all from there on foot despite the fact that it looked oh-so-close on paper.

    The most vibrant area to stay in is the half-mile stretch between Piazza Navona and Piazza Barberini. Some rooms here are pricey but you’ll also find plenty of small family-run hotels nearby. Guidebooks are fine for gathering ideas, but hit the Internet to get the best deals. Or if you prefer, book a hotel directly with ItalyGuides.it and you’ll contribute to publishing future guides like this one.

    4. Dining in Rome

    Going hungry is one thing no traveler should ever worry about while in Rome; the city is literally overrun with good places to eat. The busy area just south of the Spanish Steps is full of them, and the maze of intersecting side streets tucked between Via del Corso and Piazza Navona contains dozens as well. Most have outdoor seating and offer similar menus containing pasta, pizza, veal, chicken and a few seafood dishes. The food is typically simple, fresh and delicious, and even the restaurants that seem to be tourist traps will still feed you well. If you have a tough time choosing, your best bet is to simply decide what you want to look at while you’re dining and pick a restaurant based on that. For instance, the Piazza della Rotonda contains several cafés which face the Pantheon. and Piazza Navona is completely circled by restaurants which offer views of its numerous fountains.

    For the younger folks we suggest an evening sipping beer in “Piazza di Campo dei Fiori ” near the Pantheon, or in picturesque Trastevere. typical hangout zone for young Romans.

    A few dining tips; first, Rome is one of the cities where a restaurant’s house wine is usually excellent. Second, although I recommend learning and using at least a few Italians phrases, almost every waiter I’ve ever encountered in Rome speaks English. I’ve even heard Germans and other Europeans communicating with Italian waiters in English because it’s the more common language.

    Some useful phrases for dining are. “Scusi, vorremmo ordinare”. which means “Excuse me, we’d like to order” ; or you can ask for the cheque by saying “Il conto per favore” ; and if the food was good and the waiters attentive, then don’t forget to leave a small tip. Remember also that, especially during summer, Roman restaurants will be open until well after ten in the evening.

    5. Exploring Rome

    Take out that handy map of Rome again. Now draw a diamond shape with the Spanish Steps at the top, Station Termini to the right, Aventine Hill at the bottom and Piazza Navona to the left. 75-percent of your sightseeing will probably take place within this area, and even though it doesn’t seem that big on the map you’ll need at least two days to see everything within the diamond and three would be better; some activities, such as touring the ruins of ancient Rome (including the Colosseum) could easily occupy an entire day.

    Several notable sights lie outside the diamond shape, including the Vatican (another full-day destination), Castel Sant’Angelo and the Villa Borghese. Rome’s subway system can come in handy when you’re traveling to these locations (look for the big red M at the entrance to each station) and a one-way ticket costs less than a dollar but there are also tourist tickets called BIT or CIS good for unlimited rides. BIT “Biglietto Turistico Integrato” is a 3-day ticket, valid until midnight of the third day on which the ticket is validated, the CIS “Carta Integrata Settimanale” is a weekly one.

    Both BIT and CIS grant you unlimited rides on Atac or Cotral buses, subways, and some local trains. Tickets can be sold by tabacchi (tobacconists), which are housed in buildings with bold black T’s on white or dark blue signs.

    There is also a ticket called “Roma Pass ” that offers you transport and two museums free of charge as well as reductions for all other museums and major events in Rome for a 3-day pass. The “Roma Pass ” is available in all museums and the Tourist Information Points.

    Rome is a city that is best savored slowly, like a glass of robust red wine. Allow yourself the chance to see it properly by formulating a touring plan before you arrive. Choose one small section of the city to explore each day, leaving yourself ample time to lounge over a cup of cappuccino at an outdoor café or a scoop of gelato at one of the dozens of ice cream shops you’ll find.

    Another hint is to save the attractions closest to your hotel for last ; you may be tempted to do just the opposite, but these will be the easiest sights to visit if time starts to run short.

    If the worst case scenario happens and you’re unable to see everything in one trip, just toss a coin into Trevi fountain before you leave and legend has it that you’ll be guaranteed another visit in the future.

    Introducing Rome

    A heady mix of haunting sights, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy ‘s Eternal City is one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring capitals.

    Artistic Riches

    Few cities can rival Rome’s astonishing artistic heritage. Throughout history, the city has starred in the great upheavals of Western art, drawing the top artists of the day and inspiring them to push the boundaries of creative achievement. The result is a city awash with priceless treasures. Ancient statues adorn world-class museums, Byzantine mosaics and Renaissance frescoes dazzle in the city’s art-rich churches, baroque facades flank medieval piazzas. Walk around the centre and without even trying you’ll come across masterpieces by the giants of the artistic pantheon – sculptures by Michelangelo, canvases by Caravaggio, Raphael frescoes and fountains by Bernini.

    Historical Legacies

    The result of 3000 years of ad hoc urban development, Rome’s cityscape is an exhilarating spectacle. Ancient icons such as the Colosseum. Roman Forum and Pantheon recall Rome’s time as the fearsome hub of the Roman Empire, the caput mundi (capital of the world), while catacombs and clandestine churches hark back to the early days of Christianity. Lording it over the Vatican. St Peter’s Basilica is the greatest of the city’s monumental basilicas, a towering masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Elsewhere, ornate piazzas and elaborate churches add a baroque flourish to the city’s historic streets.

    Living the Life

    A trip to Rome is as much about lapping up the dolce vita lifestyle as gorging on art and culture. It’s about relaxing into the city’s Mediterranean rhythms and idling around the picturesque streets. Whiling away hours at streetside cafes and people-watching on pretty piazzas are an integral part of the Roman experience. The tempo rises as the heat of the day fades into the evening cool and the fashionably dressed aperitivo (aperitif) crowd descends on the city’s bars and cafes. Restaurants and trattorias hum with activity and cheerful hordes mill around popular haunts before heading off to cocktail bars and late-night clubs.

    Roman Feasting

    Eating out is one of Rome’s great pleasures and the combination of romantic al fresco settings and superlative food is a guarantee of good times. For contemporary fine dining and five-star wine there are any number of refined restaurants, but for a truly Roman meal search out the city’s boisterous pizzerias and convivial neighbourhood trattorias. These are where the locals go to dine with friends and indulge their passion for thin, crispy pizzas, humble but delicious pastas, and cool white wine from the nearby Castelli Romani hills.

    Why I Love Rome

    By Duncan Garwood, Writer

    I’m a walker and I love exploring Rome on foot, losing myself in the tangled lanes of the historic centre and neighbourhoods like Trastevere and Monti. I love the aroma of freshly ground coffee that comes out of the cafes and sharing a carafe of local wine over lunch in a trattoria. I enjoy the gruff humour of the locals and the way they have an opinion on everything. I’m also a history buff, and after 15 years in the city, I still get a kick every time I see the Colosseum or spy St Peter’s dome looming over the skyline.

    Rome is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — have a look at each of them.

    Rome (Italian. Roma ), the Eternal City. is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It’s the famed city of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (the sweet life), the Vatican City and Three Coins in the Fountain. Rome, as a millenium-long centre of power, culture (having been the cradle of one of the globe’s greatest civilisations ever) and religion, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its roughly 2800 years of existence.

    The historic centre of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millennium-old churches, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe’s and the world’s most visited, famous, influential and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy’s oldest jewellery and clothing establishments were founded in the city).

    Districts [ edit ]

    Central Rome [ edit ]

    Understand [ edit ]

    The Pantheon

    Situated on the river Tiber, between the Apennine mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative centre of the mighty Roman Empire, ruling over a vast territory that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Today, the city is the seat of the Italian government and home to numerous ministerial offices. Rome has 2.6 million inhabitants while its metropolitan area is home to around 4.2 million.

    Architecturally and culturally, Rome has some contrasts – you have areas with pompously huge majestic palaces, avenues and basilicas which are then surrounded by tiny alleyways, little churches and old houses; you may also find yourself walking from a grand palace and tree-lined elegant boulevard, into a small and cramped Medieval-like street.

    The abbreviation “S.P.Q.R” – short for the old motto of the Roman Republic Senatus Populusque Romanus (“The Senate and People of Rome”) – is ubiquitous in Rome, being also that of Rome’s city council; a humorous variation is “Sono pazzi questi romani” (these Romans are crazy).

    For two weeks in August, many of Rome’s inhabitants used to shut up shop and go on their own vacations; today, however, things have changed – many shops and restaurants (especially those located in the historical centre that cater to tourists) are open in summer. On the other hand, the ones located in residential areas do close. The temperature in the city at this time of year is not particularly pleasant: if you do travel to Rome at this time, you might see chiuso per ferie (closed for holidays) signs on many establishments. Even in these weeks the city is very beautiful and you will always be able to find somewhere to eat.

    Rome Travel – Rome Tourism – Best Time to Travel to

    #rome travel
    #

    Share

    Rome travel is ideal at various times of year with plenty of excellent times to visit. Choosing the best time for Rome tourism means assessing a list of needs and wants before making any solid plans to ensure that your ideal vacation is what you get. There are cool times of year and stifling hot times of year. There are extremely busy seasons and periods when crowds dissipate and Rome’s streets and attractions can be efficiently navigated and explored. Expense levels also differ greatly through Rome’s diverse seasons, presenting both costly and economical times to travel. All of these specific elements present effective opportunity in choosing the best time to travel to Rome.

    Rome Weather

    An almost asphyxiating heat permeates Rome during the summer months, and especially throughout the month of August. This is not the best time to travel to Rome if heat is a problem for you. In August, most Romans head off on holidays. heading to the mountains and beaches for haven from the heat. Most of Rome’s colorful characters and lively local residents are gone, which makes the city seem a little less dynamic than usual.

    Rome Map

    Many travelers can only explore Rome during summer vacations, the main reason Rome is so hectic from June to July. Though Rome travel in the summer isn’t the most advantageous for many reasons, the city is still welcoming, even if attractions like the Colosseum can be choked by tourists. If crowds aren’t an annoyance and the heat isn’t bothersome, Rome is a nice place for tours in the summer. Booking ahead is pivotal for securing lower-cost central Rome hotels. enjoying cheaper rental transportation costs, and taking advantage of all inclusive vacation packages .

    In March through May clusters of tourists are easily avoided, air and hotel prices are still low, and the weather is glorious. The long lines at museums and monuments are often nonexistent, dining is an easy endeavor, advance reservations are hardly necessary, and the skies are generally sunny, enveloping Rome in a warm and soothing (yet not too hot) temperature. The spring season can be the best time to travel to Rome, and pairing depressed rates with nearly empty attractions like the grand Pantheon and Seven Pilgrim Churches. creates an ideal situation. Though May is gaining on peak Rome tourism periods, it isn’t quite there. Affable temperatures along with many other desirable facets are a strong draw, pulling in travelers seeking to experience Rome’s uncrowded ancient sites and soak in the halcyon atmosphere afforded by vacations in off season.

    Travel Tips for Rome, Italy

    Related Articles

    While millions of international visitors flock to Rome each year, the Eternal City marches to its own drum. No amount of foreign tourism seems to affect Rome s distinct atmosphere and culture; on the contrary, visitors should be prepared to yield to Roman customs, as touring etiquette is clearly defined.

    Language

    While many people in Rome speak English, don t assume the person you are approaching with a question does. In general, Romans are a proud people and some may think you re rude to ask them a question in English. Use an Italian phrase book to ask touristy questions. Most natives are delighted by foreigners attempts to speak Italian — chances are, when you try to ask a question in Italian, the locals will smile and grant you permission to speak in English.

    Some long overdue Rome and non-Rome writings

    Oh my goodness, has it really been that long since I last updated?

    I can explain. First it was down to nothing but my own laziness/busy-ness. Then it was because I started going gliding again for the first time since 2008, and as a result of that, I met a guy, moved to Shakespeare’s County with him and now never have the time to update!

    But I thought I’d write a quick update to let you know that I’m still here, and tell you a bit about trips I’ve done since I last updated and the travels I have planned for the rest of the year. I’m afraid they’re not all to Rome, but as they say, variety is the spice of life…

    I went to Rome back in September for a long weekend with my mum, which was really nice. It’s a bit of a tradition of ours, and it’s nice because we’re both interested in the same sort of stuff – especially the traces of very early Christianity that are all over the city if you know where to look. I stayed an extra night on my own and met up with a friend of mine, who just happened to be in Rome with a friend of hers that night. We went out for a fab meal at Da Baffetto in the evening, and the next day I took them on a bit of a tour (my friend’s friend had never been to Rome would you believe!). We discovered the most fantastic place for lunch: Obika. a mozzarella bar!

    Sublime plate of mozzarella at Obika

    It was absolutely amazing – I had no idea that there were so many different kinds of mozzarella. They bring out a massive platter of all the varieties, along with some tomatoes, bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and let me tell you, it is the food of the gods. There are branches of Obika in other countries if you can’t make it to Rome, but it’s definitely something that you should put on your bucket list if you’re at all interested in cheese.

    In December Lee and I had our first trip abroad together – a nice Christmassy weekend in France. We went to Boulogne and stocked up on French food and wine, wandered around a Christmas market (at which there were, inexplicably, llamas), treated ourselves to mouthwatering steak at a lovely restaurant in the square, and went in the cathedral. It’s surprisingly do-able in a weekend and if you get Eurotunnel tickets, an overnight trip is only about £30 each way.

    Random llamas at Boulogne Christmas market

    We returned to France again in April, stopping overnight in Boulogne en route to Bruges, where we spent a delightful sunny day. I had been to Belgium once before, but just passing through on the way to Germany with my grandparents many years ago, so there hadn’t been time to take in the cultural differences then. From the moment we parked the car I was struck by how neat and tidy everything was – the carpark at the station was pristine and there was a massive secure room absolutely full to the brim with bikes.

    The main square in Bruges

    The historic centre of the city is conveniently signposted for tourists arriving by train, so we had a leisurely walk through a park and then spent much of the day wandering the city’s meandering streets. The number of chocolate shops was quite amazing, and inevitably we spent quite a few Euros on stuff to take back. I hadn’t realised that Bruges has lots of canals, a bit like Venice, and there was a nice little market set up along the banks of one, where we indulged in waffles purely because we were in Belgium. We ended up sitting outside in the main square watching the world (and a marching band) go by. All we could just about afford in the extortionately priced restaurants was a ham sandwich to share, a giant beer for Lee and a glass of red wine for me. Needless to say, I came away sunburnt, but it was a glorious day.

    Next weekend we are off to Scandinavia, which will be my first trip to that part of the world, though Lee has been before. We are going to Copenhagen for the day on Friday, before crossing the bridge into Sweden for the rest of the weekend, where we are attending the wedding of my dear friends Hanna and David in a village not far from Lund. It should be amazing, though I’m not really looking forward to a 3am start on Friday!

    The next trip we have booked after that is a weekend in Rome to celebrate our anniversary in October. I can’t wait to show Lee around my favourite city and introduce him to all the best gelaterias! I was surprised by how much the price of flights has gone up since I last went. In the end though we got a good deal with Monarch, which I discovered via cheapflights.co.uk. We’ll be staying in my usual B B, which is five minutes’ walk from St Peter’s, so that’ll be lovely.

    Our last trip of the year will be to Tunisia for a week in November. We booked through Thomas Cook so I’m not expecting five-star luxury, but it will be a great opportunity to experience a completely different culture from anything we’ve ever experienced before. And I’m told we can ride camels on the beach, which itself is reason enough to go.

    I shall try not to leave it so long until the next update…

    Behind the Scenes at Rachel s Rome Writings

    Sorry for neglecting the blog of late. I have been insanely busy! I thought I d share an interview I did with Wandering Educators a while back better late than never and I ll be back with more great Rome features in the New Year!

    From Jessie at Wandering Educators:

    I took 5 years of Latin in high school. It wasn t enough for me I couldn t learn enough about Rome, Italy, languages, and food (well, you know me). So, I am drawn to all things Rome past, present, and future. From Romulus and Remus to Gelato, I am all in. So imagine my delight when I found a website ALL ABOUT ROME   for thinking people. Rachel s Rome Writings. by Rachel McCombie, is more than a travelogue it s a resorce for learning about Rome   places, spaces, walks, food, and more. You can read about the Tomb of Eurysaces, the top Rome attractions, archaeology, churches, places to stay, the Seven Hills of Rome. It s so much fun to dig into this site and explore. AND! Rachel is our NEW Rome Editor, so look for more great articles from her both on our site, and hers. Her latest here? Rome s Trevi Fountain understanding the rituals. Love it!

    We sat down to talk with Rachel about her site, Rome, travel tips, and more. Here s what she had to say

    WE: How did you get to love Rome?

    RM: It all started when I was at university. I studied Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, meaning I got to study both ancient writings and the surviving monuments. In my second year, one of my many amazing tutors told me about a summer school which is held every year at the British School at Rome, and I decided to apply. I’d been to Rome before, but this was a lot more intense – site visits all day every day, with lectures in the evening. It was the best two weeks of my life, and I really got to know and love the city. I’ve been going back regularly ever since!

    WE: Please tell us about Rachel s Rome Writings

    WE: How can travelers best plan a journey to Rome?

    Rome is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — have a look at each of them.

    Rome (Italian. Roma ), the Eternal City. is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It’s the famed city of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (the sweet life), the Vatican City and Three Coins in the Fountain. Rome, as a millenium-long centre of power, culture (having been the cradle of one of the globe’s greatest civilisations ever) and religion, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its roughly 2800 years of existence.

    The historic centre of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millennium-old churches, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe’s and the world’s most visited, famous, influential and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy’s oldest jewellery and clothing establishments were founded in the city).

    Understand [ edit ]

    The Pantheon

    Situated on the river Tiber, between the Apennine mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative centre of the mighty Roman Empire, ruling over a vast territory that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Today, the city is the seat of the Italian government and home to numerous ministerial offices. Rome has 2.6 million inhabitants while its metropolitan area is home to around 4.2 million.

    Architecturally and culturally, Rome has some contrasts – you have areas with pompously huge majestic palaces, avenues and basilicas which are then surrounded by tiny alleyways, little churches and old houses; you may also find yourself walking from a grand palace and tree-lined elegant boulevard, into a small and cramped Medieval-like street.

    The abbreviation “S.P.Q.R” – short for the old motto of the Roman Republic Senatus Populusque Romanus (“The Senate and People of Rome”) – is ubiquitous in Rome, being also that of Rome’s city council; a humorous variation is “Sono pazzi questi romani” (these Romans are crazy).

    For two weeks in August, many of Rome’s inhabitants used to shut up shop and go on their own vacations; today, however, things have changed – many shops and restaurants (especially those located in the historical centre that cater to tourists) are open in summer. On the other hand, the ones located in residential areas do close. The temperature in the city at this time of year is not particularly pleasant: if you do travel to Rome at this time, you might see chiuso per ferie (closed for holidays) signs on many establishments. Even in these weeks the city is very beautiful and you will always be able to find somewhere to eat.

    Anthony Bourdain s Rome Travel Tips #essential #travel

    Visit the Eternal City

    Anthony Bourdain has a little over 30 hours to experience the “Eternal City” of Rome. He crisscrosses the city by bus, by Fiat, and by Vespa determined to get his fill of Italian cuisine before his flight out. Before your next visit, check out some of Tony s tips from The Layover: Rome episode.

    The Pace of Rome

    “Ideally, you visit Rome slowly. You sit, you stroll, you take it slow and as it comes. You don’t go to see stuff, you let it slip up on you — one piazza, one fountain, one amazing structure at a time. That would be the best-case scenario.”

    Airport Transportation

    “Fiumicino Airport has the usual assortment of transportation options. The easiest but pricier would be a taxi straight into town to your hotel. That s a flat fare of about 60 bucks. There are shuttle buses for about 15 bucks, which should take about 40 minutes, but traffic can be unpredictable. I opt for the express train this time around: $20 and only 30 minutes. It’s supposed to be fast, efficient, easy, but honestly as I stare down another walkway, I begin to regret my decision.”

    Rome s Train Station

    “Termini station is the massive transportation hub of Rome, and it s the center of suck-dom as far as I’m concerned.”

    Public Transportation

    “In Rome, you can for 1 euro, get 75 minutes of unlimited access to any of Rome s many means of transportation the metro, for instance. However, there are only 2 lines that crisscross the city like an X, meeting at — guess where? — Termini station. There are also buses and trams above ground. Not a big difference, just depends where you’re going.”

    Where to Stay

    “I suggest the Centro Storico, or historical center of the city, so you’re within walking distance of all the good stuff that you want to at least lay eyes on. Hotels are expensive, so book early if you re looking for lower-priced penziones as they tend to fill up quickly. On the other hand, if you want to blow it out and live large, and pay bigtime for the privilege, the Hotel de Russie is swankadelic, discreet, and it s right down the street (yet comfortably insulated from) the Spanish steps. But again, it’s expensive.”

    What to Bring

    “The toilet paper in this country is not the fluffiest, it’s very abrasive like I m sitting on steel wool every time I sit down. Here s a traveler’s tip bring your own double-ply.”

    What Not to Do

    “You could have that ubiquitous hotel breakfast, I guess. But you are seriously a (bleep) idiot if you do. You will be needing that real estate for good food, not room-temperature eggs.”

    A Proper Roman Breakfast

    “No eggs, no pancakes you save room for lunch. It’s cappuccino, and maybe a cornetto. That’s it.

    For a Snack

    “What s a Roman specialty you might have for a light lunch or a snack? Well, one might head off to the Pigneto district to score yourself some porchetta.”

    Porchetta

    “The pride of Rome, porchetta, is a whole deboned pig stuffed with herbs, spit-roasted and generally served with a pitcher of ice-cold Italian beer.”

    For a Picnic

    “Italian deli/groceries, known as alimentari or salumeria, are the perfect place to stock up on some of Rome’s best flavors. Procured, stored, sliced and solid with passion and real craftsmanship. You pretty much can t go wrong with takeout like this. And of course, there are fountains and piazzas around every corner where you can sit down and eat.”

    The Best Gelato

    “There are, of course, gelaterias (good and not so good) everywhere in Italy, but it’s worth looking for a great one. Gelateria dei Gracchi in the Prati district is probably the best of the best.”

    An Italian Cocktail

    “When making negronis at home: 1/3 high-end gin, 1/3 Campari and 1/3 sweet vermouth. I don t really like gin, I don t really like Campari, and I don t like sweet vermouth but together your friend. The count negroni, it is said, invented this fine cocktail in Florence. Unsatisfied with the level of alcohol in his Americano cocktail of Campari and sweet vermouth, he suggested his waiter ratchet up the danger level with the addition of gin. Thus was born a classic.”

    Why to Rent a Vespa

    “You can speed through traffic, you’re out there in the world you can actually smell it, feel it, wind in your hair. OK, it’s a little more dangerous, but think about it you can also pull over as the instinct or impulse strikes you. You know, it s not a big commitment to park. It’s cheap. It’s the most totally awesome way to get around Rome. Five times as fast, 5 times as flexible, 5 times as fun why wouldn t you do this?”

    Tony s Final Bite in Rome

    “Cacio e pepe. You could get it anywhere, but you want it good. This place, named strangely enough Cacio e Pepe. does it good. I love this (bleep). Looks like just some plain pasta with a little black pepper and cheese and it basically is. But, you have no idea how good that is.”

    The One Thing to Do in Rome

    “If you do one thing in Rome, one thing. Forget about Vatican City, all the rest, one thing: Find a place that is guaranteed by locals to make good cacio e pepe, get yourself a nice jug of wine and eat.”
