I was wondering whether Lago Albano is worth visiting over Christmas time? we are arriving on Christmas day (not ideal, I know) at FCO airport until 31st December. We have 6 days to spend in the area. We have been to Rome on a previous vacation and was hoping to explore the area outside of Rome. Any ideas would be most welcome. In this area of Lago Albano or other towns to visit in the area.
I will be looking to pick up two separate sets/collections of olive wood kitchen utensils as gifts and do not wish to pay a fortune.
Do any of the Flea Markets offer them for sale and which Flea Markets would give me the best opportunities for finding them? Also, would this be the best and least expensive way to acquire them? I will also be in Florence and Milan for a number of days if one knows of greater savings that would be available in those areas. We are talking about collecting 6-10 utensils per set; mix/match and of a fairly good quality. What type of prices would we be talking about?
Any help or advice would be appreciated; in advance, Thank you
Coming this Sunday from North Italy by car for visiting Cappella Sistina I have been adviced to park either at Villaggio Olimpico or at Saxa Rubra from where it seems that I can get an easy transport to Città del Vaticano. I have not found any trustfull information in Internet. My idea is to leave my car in a safe parking and then to go by public transport. In which of the two places can I catch bus or underground to reach, possibly directly, Città del Vaticano and is transport from there running easily on Sundays? Last question: can I pay my ticket directely on the bus should it be the only available transport? Thank you.
We are hoping to come to Rome IN Feb 2014 for a short break for our honeymoon (a mini moon as we got married abroad with friends and family in Sept).
Neither of us know a great deal about the city and we are a lttle lost about where to start looking for a hotel location wise and also the nghtlife side of things.
We are aged 35 and 42 and tend to like to eat somewhere nice then go to a few nice bars for a few drinks we dont really want nightclubs just nice trendy bars ideally close to a nice hotel. During the day we are hoping to see the main site but are only going to be here for 3 nights so might have to restrict what we do. We like to be out an about but obviously dont want to set ourselves a restrcitive time table we are just hoping for a nice city break for a few days without our two yong children..
Can anyone give me any advice re hotel location etc (or any other tips)....
What is the best way to get around in Rome? If we take a cab anywhere, is it easy to find one? What would the rates be comparable to? Thank you! This is our first time to Europe (Rome, Paris, and London) and we are a little unsure about transportation. Any other suggestions are also helpful!
I heard that, by law, foreigners should carry their passport. However, due to the risk of loss, people carry a copy of their passport, instead. How about carrying an international driver's license as an ID? Is it worth paying $15 to get it for the travel? I don't plan to drive while traveling. I am just concerned about the personal safety and theft, as a solo female traveller.
