Lazio Comments

I first visited Roma in 1973 and I had the best time there -- the city was so beautiful with all its history and the people so friendly. Again, I visited in 2003 and it was still wonderful. I visited last year with my daughter because I told her it was the one of the best cities in the world. How disappointed we were, I could have cried. We stayed at an apartment near Termini Station and the proprietor insisted we pay cash even though the internet site said you could pay with a credit card. Unfortunately, because of demand, all ATMs (Bancomats) were out of service. We walked around with the proprietor late into the night, gave up and found one in the morning that worked. We only had three days and didn't want to waste time. First we headed off to St. Peter's but the crowds were horrendous so we gave up on that. The queues for the Vatican went right around the streets and were six people deep. We decided to leave that for another day and get up early in the morning. We queued from…
Roma was one of the most beautiful and interesting cities I have ever seen, but also one of the sketchiest. My friend got her wallet and one hundred-fifty Euros stolen on the Metro on the way to the Vatican Museum, so watch out! Also, beware of the Termini train station late at night and early in the morning. Lots of creepy drunk guys tend to hang out around there.
I went to Sperlongo 2 years ago in the summer time. I spent a month in August, it was very hot! Beautiful Beach. Lots to do for both young and old. I stayed in Old Sperlonga and had a great time! Met lots of nice people!
My wife and I visited Sperlonga in June 2005, while staying at nearby Terracina. We considered our own little town enchanting, but soon conceded that Sperlonga was even more outrageously beautiful. We've seen much of Italy -- Sestriere, Rome, Pompeii, Trieste, Naples, Turin. All of them surprised us in their way, but nothing prepared me for the stunning magnificence of Sperlonga.
I lived in Roma for four months with work paying for my plush appartment. Rome is such a lovely place and I liked the people -- what you see is what you get with them. Food and service is great, weather is great. Enjoy your trip there and eat out as much as you can.
Roma is historic. Act like a local, keep your valuables hidden, and don't walk round with a map. There are pickpockets and thieves. Watch out. And if you hate your pension or hostel, change it. There are hundreds of others. Don't be intimidated by the pushy owners. I found Rome to be the pushiest city I have ever visited in terms of locals. Perhaps someone needs to remind the Italians that without tourists their economy wouldn't be that good.
