Rome - Fiumicino
is cool, don't stay too long because you might get abducted by the vatican gaurds who dislike you because you clothes are not appropriate, but they are wearing something you would see at disneyland. Go here to party in pubs and peep the ruins. Watch out for the drunk dude at the pantheon with his box wine.
was a great place to visit, but lots of walking. But I found a few bars that made up for that at the end of the day. Try and make a trip down to Pompeii -- only two hours away. All I can say is be careful of some of the guys around the termini station, as my friend and I nearly got rolled. If you look about for a night out, you can get good deals on beer -- especially the old town (it's pretty reasonable). I found the Italian very polite -- if you make the effort to speak Italian no matter how basic, you get respect! Enjoy Rome -- the ladies are darlings and fit!
Rome is a fantastic, brilliant city but one that, like most large and popular cities, offers traps for the unwary. There are lots of pickpockets (and they are very good at their jobs), but just pay attention and don't flaunt your valuables. On the plus side, Rome has a very low serious crime rate for such a large city and is generally safe (with all the usual provisos). You can also be ripped off (however, not as badly as I've been ripped off in London, Paris, or New York) and pay too much for bad food but that is usually only if you eat at tourist spots and don't wander off the tourist path (it doesn't take much wandering -- usually just a street away). Eat at local places, drink your coffee standing up, and generally try to get the feel of the place and you will have a much much better time. People are not mean or pushy, but nor will they fawn and grovel at your feet -- Italians (
ns especially, who can be a bit old fashioned) people respond to politeness and attempts to at…
I first visited
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…
Most hostels in
are located near the train station. It's a very touristy area, but it's a reasionably central area in the city and it's nice to be able to walk directly to your hostel from the train station. If you stay somewhere not near the train station, there's also a metro stop at the train station, so you can usually get to your hostel that way.
is more beautiful than any town in Tuscany, yet has only a few tourists. It cannot stay that way for long.
