    • Is Rome taxi-airports-transfer familiar ?

      Rome Sep 14, 2015 at 3:30 AM

      I´ve been thinking of pre-ordering minivan transportation for my family of 5 from FCO to our holiday apartment. Has anyone used company called taxi-airports-transfer ? Price seems to be cheapest and they answer emails very quickly.


    • How to Spend a Few Hours in Civitavecchia on a Sunday?

      Rome Sep 6, 2015 at 1:02 PM

      We're on a cruise which ends about 8-9 AM in Civitavecchia on a Sunday morning (Sept. 27), but our flight out is not until 3:15 in the afternoon. How far is it from the cruise terminal to the town of Civitavecchia? Is there some place to store luggage for a few hours? What is there to do for 2-3 hours in the town before moving on to Fiumicino airport? How difficult is it to book transportation to the airport from one of the many services advertising online if we would not be leaving the town or port area until perhaps noon or so?


    • Vatican or colosseum tour?

      Rome Sep 22, 2015 at 3:42 PM

      Hello, we have a very limited time in Rome and wanted to tick off a few major sites with our 3 kids and my parents (group of 7). We are thinking of organising a guide through our hotel, for time management purposes. So I'm hoping someone can recommend whether we use the guide for a tour of the Vatican or of the colosseum area? Thank uou

      Ticket for the train from FCO airport

      Rome Sep 10, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      I found the FL1 train is very good to get to Rome city center. Does it cost 8€?

      But it doesn't go to Termini. The FL5 train goes to Termini from the Trastevere station, where the FL1 stops. The question is if the ticket bought for the FL1 is valid (as it valid 90 minutes) for the FL5?

      And does it cost 8 or 11€?

    • taxi from Roma Tiburtina train station

    • Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill

      Rome Sep 14, 2015 at 4:56 AM

      Short notice, I know, but we are leaving tomorrow, 15 September! We have 2 days in Rome and hope to visit The Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill using the E12/48hr combined ticket. We hope to see all 3 on the some day but only have about 5 hours. Is it possible to buy the combined ticket from the Palatine entrance on Via di Gregorio (where I believe queues may be shorter) and then not go in but go to the Colosseum with our pre-paid ticket and just join the queue for security checks. Then after the Colosseum, visit the Forum and Palatine Hill.

      What I should like to know is whether you can get out from the ticket office at Palatine and go to the Colosseum, or whether you are 'forced' to enter the Palatine and, if we do not have time to visit both the Forum and Palatine on the first day, whether we can visit the other one the next day? I have heard that when you visit either the Forum or Palatine that this counts as one visit and you cannot have entry to the other site separately at another time.

      I should be very grateful for any advice anyone can offer me, despite the 18 hour window!

      Many thanks.

      Galleria Borghese tickets

      Rome Sep 9, 2015 at 6:14 AM

      Hi all,
      In my effort to pre-purchase tickets for visiting Galleria Borghese there is a seating plan

      where I have to choose seats. I do not understand the reason to do so. An explanation would be very useful as well as which seats (2) should I choose.

      Transportation from FCO to appartment

      Rome Sep 8, 2015 at 10:27 AM

      Hello! Going to Rome next week I am now evaluating the best way to go from FCO airport to my appartment, which is on Via Monterone, near Campo de' Fiori.
      From what I understand I have three options:

      • Train - Which would have to be the Leonardo Express, since the FR1 does not stop on Termini which is a good way to catch the bus 40
      • Bus
      • Taxi

      I already excluded the Bus option as, even it is way cheaper, takes too long to reach my appartment.

      The train option is ok. We would have to go to Termini Station and then catch the Bus 40 to get to our appartment. The overall cost of this for 2 persons would be 31€, if the prices I saw are correct.

      And then there's the taxi option! I read that the taxis have a fixed fare for travels betweem FCO and Rome Centre, which would apply to me. My doubt here is how much is that fare. I already saw 40€ and saw 48€. For example:

      So, I would choose the taxi option, as it is only 9€ more than the train option (if it is the 40€ fare) and surely way more confortable and fast.

      Do you know what is the correct current fixed price fare? Are the prices for the train and bus I found updated? Which option would you take?

      Thank you so much guys, have a good day!

    • Train or car to Florence from Civitavecchia

    • Best train station to go to after docking in Civitavecchia to head to Venice

      by Jen8675309 Online Now Mar 31, 2015 at 6:24 PM

      We will be docking in Civitavecchia, from there two of three couples are getting a car service up to Florence to finish their trip. One couple is heading to Venice. Would it make sense to tag along up to Florence and take the train from there to Venice, or head to Rome to take the train. I realize that Rome is closer to the port, but wondering if the craziness there would make for a more difficult commute.

      Transportation to Le Terme Taurine

      I will be on a cruise ship in Civitavecchia on a Sunday. I want to visit the Terme Taurine on Via Terme di Traiano in Civitavecchia. I understand that shuttle busses run (or at least used to run) from the train station and the information center to the Terme. Is that still the case and will they be running on a Sunday in May? How often will the busses run and how are they marked? Thank you.

      by KaytieP Online Now Oct 29, 2013 at 3:53 AM

      We shall be visiting Civitavecchia on Dec 26th 2013 from a cruise ship.

      We do not want to go to Rome. We cannot manage to walk long distances so are wondering if there is any reasonably priced transportation around C itself, such as a tour bus or otherwise can you give me an idea of the cost of taxis.

      Also, bearing in mind that this is Boxing Day will there be any places open ?

      I presume there will be no market. Will all other places such as museums and coffee shops also be closed ?

      Many thanks for any help.
