    • Colosseum Tickets/Tour

      Rome Nov 15, 2016 at 10:49 PM

      Hi All,

      I am hoping for a recommendation for a tour company to book with to take a tour of the Colosseum(inc underground and third ring)?

      It seems the recommended "official" ticket website sells tickets online which are only valid until the 31st December- we would like to book for the 9th Jan.

      Any suggestions??

      Thanks in Advance

      may 1 and train travel to and from civitavecchia

      Rome Yesterday

      will be in port in civitavecchia may 1. wanting to get to rome to tour on our own using the rick steves "heart of rome walk" as a guide. the best and least expensive option is for us to take the train in to rome and then use the metro and walking as a way to accomplish just a bit of sight seeing. my question: is using the train/ metro a viable option on this holiday day or should we spend way more money and use the ship's transport in to rome (which guarantees we will arrive back at the ship for departure). we will be in port for about 10 hrs and i realize it takes an hour or more to get in to the city from civitavecchia. opinions? we know most all the big tourist spots are closed this day.

    • Anzio or Formia

      by wparsons Online Now May 21, 2014 at 1:19 AM

      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, 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!

    • Ponza by car or foot?

      by travelsouls Online Now Aug 2, 2006 at 12:53 AM

      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.
