    • Independant Tour Operators

      Rome Mar 28, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      We're sailing from Barcelona, Spain this summer. The tours that Royal Caribbean offers are quite expensive. Are there independent tour operators at the port who are cheaper that cruise line tours and, if so, do they speak English?

      Looking for the site of the Roma Mormon temple

      Rome Apr 14, 2014 at 8:25 AM

      Hello :) We are headed to Roma this weekend and would like to visit the site of the Mormon temple that is under construction there, but I cannot find its location on Mormon.org. I know the church kind of likes to keep the location of its new temples under wraps until they are open to the public, so I'm hoping that someone who has seen the new site or lives in Rome and knows where it is could share its location so that we can visit while we are there. Does anyone know where it is?

      Thank you so much :D

    • Roman Coliseum and the Roman Fever

      Rome Mar 27, 2014 at 3:07 PM

      I read in Henry James' novella "Daisy Miller" about Daisy contracting the Roman Fever by being in the coliseum at night. Of course, the setting of that story is in the 1870s, and it is fiction. But I was wondering: 1) What the rules were for public access to the coliseum at night now; and 2) Are there stories or local tales associating this Roman Fever and the Coliseum?

      4 days Rome and Pompeii

      Rome Apr 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM

      I have allocated 4 days 4 nights for Rome and Pompeii for my 11 days Italy tour, have some specific questions

      1. Is it better to stay all 4 nights in Rome and make a day trip to Pompeii? I was thinking 3 night stay in Rome, then 1 night in Pompeii (heading Florence next). Which is better?

      2. Is it better better to get the Omnia Vatican and Rome Card or the Roma Pass? I have checked the website and they look similar to me - looking for some feedback from people who purchased and used them previously

      3. Any specials on certain days to take note of? I should be arriving on a Wednesday morning.

      4. How are the trains route like - i.e. better to travel day time or night time? Are the train rides scenic (Rome-Pompeii-Florence-Milan-Venice)

      Any useful tips would be appreciated. Thanks :)

      How do I book an advance train ticket if I'm not Italian?

      Rome Apr 6, 2014 at 8:01 PM

      Hello! I am trying to book the 2 for 1 Saturday fare from Termini to Florence via the TrenItalia website, but it says I need a login name to do so. To receive a login name, it needs an Italian address, but I am from the US. My Italian is not good enough to see what I need to do via the TrenItalia site. Does anyone know if there is a way for me to book these fares online in advance? I'm afraid the tickets will be gone if we wait. Thank you :)

    • Accomodation in Rome

      Rome Mar 30, 2014 at 12:47 PM

      Hello, I’m Sylwia. I’m from Poland, studying in Cracow :) I’m 22 years old. With 4 friends I’m going to the canonization of John Paul II. We had arranged accommodation, but recently found out that we can not stay where we planned. We have a problem-we will spend 5 nights in Rome, and we do not have somewhere to sleep, we do not have too much money for hotels ... Do you know any alternative ways of accommodation? We do not need much-just a piece of the floor. Maybe some of you who live in Rome, would like to take home 5 Polish pilgrims? Help, please ... I'm sorry for language mistakes, I do not speak fluent English :)

      Ciao, sono Sylwia. Sono polacca, studio a Cracovia. :) Ho 22 anni. Con 4 amici stanno andando alla canonizzazione di Giovanni Paolo II. Noi avevamo organizzato alloggio, ma recentemente scoperto che non possiamo stare dove abbiamo programmato. Abbiamo un problema, passeremo 5 notti a Roma, e non abbiamo un posto dove dormire, non abbiamo troppi soldi per alberghi ... Sapete eventuali mezzi alternativi di sistemazione? Non abbiamo bisogno di tanto- solo un pezzo del pavimento. Forse alcuni di Voi che vivono a Roma, vorrebbe portare a casa 5 pellegrini polacchi? Aiutatemi, per favore ... Mi dispiace per gli errori di lingua, non parlo perfettamente l'italiano :)

    • B&B Recommendations Needed

      Rome Mar 19, 2014 at 8:39 PM

      Hey Guys,

      We will be in Rome for 3 nights (Apr 30 - May 3) over the, what I hear is, extremely busy May 1st celebrations with hundreds of thousands of people. Yikes! Hope it's not too crowded while we're there. I see there are ~1000 hotels and about ~1000 B&Bs to pick from. Kinda overwhelming.

      Just looking for your opinions on a B&B for us (early 30s Canadian couple). Looking for something that has character, something "Italian" (yes, whatever that is!), hopefully something quiet/romantic but still accessible to the main sights of Rome (or a closeby metro/public transit).

      If you can think of any that come to mind, please let me know.
      Thanks!

    • Where can I buy a designer mens suit?

      Rome Yesterday

      I'll be in Rome for 3 days and want to buy a good designer men's suit.

      Is there an up-market department store somewhere in the centre that has lots of different brands in it - like Selfridges or Harvey Nichols in London, or Macy's/Bloomingdale's/Barney's in New York??

      Or is there a street that has all the major designers on it?? Money/price isn't a restriction.

      Thanks!

    • Castel Gandolfo Papal Garden tour

      Castel Gandolfo Apr 9, 2014 at 9:38 PM

      We are excited to find tickets for the new Papal Garden tour at Castel Gandolfo. Now we are trying to figure out how to get there for a 08:30 tour. A train is scheduled to arrive at 08:06 from Termini, will it give us enough time to get to the entrance? mv.vatican.va/1_CommonFiles/... only says to 'follow the sign for town center, 15 minutes on foot'. Is it really that easy? I am nervous that I won't be able to find it. Please help. Thank you.

    • Getting from Trevi Fountain to Vatican

      Rome Apr 13, 2014 at 3:57 AM

      In a few months time my wife and I will be in Rome. We are staying in a hotel close to the Trevi fountain. We have booked an early morning tour of the Sistine Chapel and have to be at the meeting point (on the corner of Viale Vaticano and Via Tunisi) at 7:15am. I was wondering the best way to get there at that time of the morning. Someone told me it is only a 20 minute walk from the fountain to the Vatican. Is that correct? Would it be safe walking in that area at that time of the morning?
      TIA

      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

    • Best activities with kids

      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.
