    • Driving 8 people from Rome to Chianti...best location to rent from, best route to take..help!

      Rome Apr 6, 2015 at 8:08 AM

      Hi All!
      We are travelling to Italy to celebrate the 70th birthdays of our parents. It will be a group of 8 adults (me/my husband, both sets of our parents and his sister and husband). We will spend the first 3 days in Rome and then move onto Chianti for 3 days and lastly Venice for 3 days.

      Last time my husband and I went to Rome/Tuscany we took the train from Rome to Florence then rented a car in Florence, however this time we're considering renting a van straight from Rome because it seems easier to drive then to coordinate 8 people (including 4 70 year olds) for the train. My questions:

      - Is this a crazy idea? I've read about the driving in Rome, is it really that hard to navigate?
      - If we do drive, can you please recommend the best location to pick up the car- so that we can avoid massively bad traffic areas and any restricted driving areas?
      - Is it difficult to drive a van in Italy? We will need a large van given there are 8 of us plus luggage...
      - Can you please recommend a scenic driving route with the option for 1-2 stops along the way from Rome to Gaiole in Chianti? We are staying here: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review...

      Thanks!

      Jogging in Rome

      Hello,

      I would like to plan a little jog in Rome but I don't want to run around the imprints of the Circus Maximus, I want to go around the city but I don't know how crowded it will be during July. Is it easy to jog in Rome? I have a feeling the answer is no.

      Rome to Tuscany

      Rome Apr 29, 2015 at 5:53 PM

      Hello,

      I will be taking away two days from Rome to go to Florence for four days, extending my stay by two days. I will be renting a car when I leave Rome and I would like to know what are some good areas to make a pit stop and observe the scenery, its not a problem if its 5-10 min away so please let me know all the good sites along the road to Tuscany. I'll try to make 2,3 maybe even 4 stops or maybe 1 long one.

      Have you rented a car in Italy? Is there a company which is better than the others or are they all good? I see its 500$ cad to rent a Giulietta. I need the Giulietta for the luggage space.

      europcar.com/DotcarClient/st...

      I did the calculation for 1L/2.10 CAD
      Rome to Tuscany = 277 km
      Giulietta 6.4L/100 km

      6.4 x 2.77 x 2.10 = Rounded answer is 40$ CAD

      70$ (rental/day)+ 40$ (gas) + 10$ extra = 120$
      3 train tickets = 150$

      = 270$

      Basically its not for the savings its just for the freedom of stopping whenever we want. I know they're all manuals but is there anything else I should know about renting cars in Italy?

    • Best way to travel with a toddler from FCO to Trastevere?

      Rome Apr 29, 2015 at 9:38 AM

      Hi,
      I have a tripped booked to Rome for May 3rd. I will be traveling with a 20 month old child. Is it realistic to consider the train and then tram as a transportation option for us or should I just take a cab into Trastevere? The hotel street is :Via degli Orti di Trastevere . Do taxis at FCO airport go into that part of Trastevere? How much will the taxi run me?

      Additionally, I am considering doing a vatican tour and Colisseum tour? Will I be allowed to bring an umbrella stroller into these facilities? Thanks in advance!

      Line Ups :(

      Rome Apr 27, 2015 at 4:38 PM

      Hello,

      I need to know how long line ups are in Rome in mid July. To make it easier, I just need to know which attractions have line ups longer than 20 minutes because I will automatically attribute 20 min per line up unless you tell me otherwise.

      How long is the Vatican line if I have the pre paid entry ticket? Do churches have line ups or you can just walk in? Please just let me know which ones have more than a 20 minute line up and which ones are walk right in if possible, I will be able to do a lot of planning with this information.

      Rome Bus system

      Rome Apr 13, 2015 at 1:59 AM

      Hi. Will be in Rome in September and am trying to determine how to use the bus system while moving around rome. The ATAC website will not help as I will not have internet access. Basically I want something that can assist me in determining what bus I need to look for when standing at a bus stop. From what I have read till now, you can see the destination of the bus (the stopping point) but not the various stops it may make (depending on whether people want to climb on or climb off at that stop) I have had a look at the Bus map at romemap360.com/en/rome-bus-m... but it does not really give me any more information and I do not want to spend unnecessary time trying to figure out which bus I need to catch to move from point A to point B Thanks

      I arrive atRome airport at 8:30 am on June 29th (Sunday) and have a hotel room on Ponza Sunday night. Most references say to take the trian from Rom to Formia. But Anzio is much closer to the airport. Why not go to Anzio and take a ferry to Ponza?

      Hi All,

      I am planning to go to Ponza this year in first week of June as part of my honeymoon to Italy, I hope you can help me in answering some questions:

      1. I didn't see beaches photos on the internet for Ponza, I mean beaches for people to swim, are there beaches for relaxing and swimming?

      2. i am planning to stay 2 nights there ( out of 12 days in Italy) are they enough?

      3. Can we go and visit Palmarola island too as a day trip? do you recommend it?

      4. Or do you think we should go to Capri instead on Ponza.

      5. I didn't find it on Caremar.it, i mean going from Anzio to Ponza, or is it closed now?

      Please advice.

    • Ponza ferries!

      by emilinajames Online Now Aug 24, 2013 at 2:31 AM

      Hi there, I am hoping to travel to Ponza on Sunday. I can only make an afternoon crossing and it seems there are ferries from Anzio -Ponza at 3pm (LazioMar) and 5.15pm. I leave on 29 August but I need to be at Roma Fiu airport for 2pm. I think my only option is the 08.00 ferry from Ponza to Formia and take the train back to Rome and then to airport. Do these travel arrangements sound possible to you? I am so sorry to ask. I have spent 4 hours trawling through ferry websites and I am still not sure I have this right. Any help on this would be hugely appreciated and many many thanks in advance!

      Hi,
      I am planning a trip to Rome and have discovered this little gem island just off the coast. I am wondering if I should take our rental car over to discover the island or if I should leave the car on the mainland. Also, if taking the car is recommended does anyone know how much it is for taking the car over. How many days are recommended on Ponza. Looking forward to your suggestions. Cheers

      by rfsrps Online Now Jul 12, 2006 at 3:17 PM

      I am coming to Ponza in August with my wife and 2 children, ages 14 and 9. They are great swimmers, and love the water. I am wondering if anyone has advice on what will be great things to do with them while we are on the island. Where might they find gatherings of other kids? We are staying, by the way,in a hotel. Also, any specific restaurant advice? There is very little, so far, on this site.

      Thanks in advance.
