    Ostia, the Port of Rome

    Mosaics of Neptune in Ostia

    Mosaics of Neptune in Ostia

    Ostia (now Ostia Antica) was the ancient port city of Rome at the mouth of the Tiber.
    Located 20 km from Rome, it’s archaeological treasures and relaxing atmosphere, are good reasons to visit.

    Ostia was active since the times of the Roman republic, and remained a residential and administrative centre after the construction of the neighbouring ports of Claudius and Trajan, with close to 50,000 residents.

    The ruins of the city, which today are located two kilometres from the coast due to sedimentation, retain many houses and public buildings.This is a particularly important example of ancient daily life.

    Subway (Metro) and Buses in Rome

    ATAC RomaThere are two main subway lines in Rome (Metro A and B), which cross at Termini.A third is being built (line C) and a line B fork (B2) is partly already in service.
    Line C, which is to cross the very center is proving a long and difficult undertaking.Upon every excavation, ancient remains are discovered…

    However the bus network is dense and frequent, although not suitable to the number of inhabitants and whose connections outside the city center are rather poor.The major drawback is the sometimes uncertain schedule and crowding at peak times.

    A single bus or metro ticket costs € 1.50, it is valid for one subway ride or 90 minutes travel by bus.

    A day ticket costs € 6

    A weekend in Rome

    To discover Rome in 2 days, we offer a somewhat exhaustive list of sites. Knowing that to appreciate it is useless to run around the Eternal City, you are even advised to take a bit of a stroll from time to time.

    • The Colosseum and the Roman Forum (close to half a day)
    • Capitol Hill, possibly its museums
    • he pantheon and the area in which the Trevi Fountain is
    • The Spanish Steps and possibly Piazza del Popolo
    • If you have time, visit Piazza Navona, close enough to the pantheon, and try to go to Campo dei Fiori, near Piazza Farnese, possibly for a drink.
    • In the evening, and if you have time, try Trastevere, always nice although increasingly touristy.It is nice to spend the evening there.

    Second day

    Baroque and renaissance

    • St. Peter’s Square and Basilica, the Vatican Museums with the Sistine Chapel (a good half day)
    • Castel Sant’Angelo and the historic heart around Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Farnese
    • If you have time, see the Bocca della Verità and the Tiber Island.

    Great Monuments of Ancient Rome

    Colosseum

    The Colosseum

    Interested in the ancient monuments and ruins of Rome? Well, you will find them everywhere. Sometimes in small and narrow streets and more or less well preserved, of course.
    Here are those that are hard to miss:

    • The Pantheon, built to honor the great Greco-Roman gods, which is exceptionally well preserved.
    • The Colosseum is the largest amphitheater of its kind. Elliptical in shape, it’s where gladiators and animals entertained the people.This is certainly the most emblematic monument of the Eternal City.
    • The Forum romain, was the political and cultural center at the times of the Roman Republic and Roman Empire along with the neighboring Imperial Forums and that of Trajan which includes the ancient markets and the famous Trajan’s column.

    Noteworthy Churches of Rome

    Eglises de Rome : Sainte-Marie en Trastevere

    Sainte-Marie en Trastevere

    After the four major basilicas described above, here is a selection of ten of the most sublime churches in the city.

    Basilica of Saint Clement

    Basilica of Saint Clement

    Basilica of Saint Clement

    This is one of the finest examples which spans the architectural history of the last two millennia of the city.

    In fact, the basilica has three superimposed levels: the lowest was built during the Roman Republic, on which an early Christian church was built with outstanding frescoes and subsequently, the present church.It reflects the overall evolution of development, rising by several meters over time showing the change in ground level of the entire city, with buildings built on top of the previous ones.

     

    Santa Maria in Trastevere

    Santa Maria in Trastevere

    Santa Maria in Trastevere

    Characterized by a Byzantine style, the church of the twelfth century was built on top of a shrine from the third century. In crossing its beautiful nave framed by Ionic columns, one proceeds in awe of the choir and its beautiful Byzantine mosaics, where the effects of perspectives emerge, a novelty at the time of their making.

     

    Santa Maria sopra Minerva

    Santa Maria sopra Minerva

    Santa Maria sopra Minerva

    Near the Pantheon, Piazza Minerva bears a strange elephant carved by Bernini and carrying an Egyptian obelisk. It is the only truly Gothic church in Rome, although its Romanesque façade does not bode this.With beautiful forms, it also houses a Christ Resurrected by Michelangelo.

     

    Saint Ignatius of Loyola in Rome

    Saint Ignatius of Loyola

    The second Jesuit church of the Order dedicated to its founder was built in the seventeenth century. Particularly baroque, it is remarkable for its perspective frescoes by Andrea Pozzo, with its famous trompe l’oeil dome.

     

    Saint Praxedes in Rome

    Saint Praxedes in Rome

    Saint Praxedes in Rome

    Built in the ninth century, St. Praxedes is one of the finest expressions of the Byzantine style in the city, with rich and colorful mosaics of an unusual quality and an expressive nature, including those of the choir and Saint Zeno Chapel.It bears a beautiful cosmatesque floor.

     

    Basilica of Santa Sabina

    Basilica of Santa Sabina

    Basilica of Santa Sabina

    Located on the pleasant and relaxing Aventine Hill, the Basilica of Santa Sabina is perhaps the most beautiful early Christian churches that have survived in Rome.Built in the early fifth century, it is the seat of the Curia of the Order of Preachers. Its vast interior is graceful and of beautiful proportions.
    The adjoining the garden of orange trees offers beautiful views of Rome and St. Peter’s dome.

     

    Santa Cecilia in Trastevere

    Santa Cecilia in Trastevere

    Santa Cecilia in Trastevere

    Dating back to the ninth century this church which houses the relics of St. Cecilia and beautiful sculpture of her is very quiet, located in a tranquil part of Trastevere.It still bears its Middle Age pavement, its apse ninth century frescos, and an interior remodeled in the nineteenth century includes many ancient elements.

     

    St. Agnes Outside the Walls

    St. Agnes Outside the Walls

    St. Agnes Outside the Walls

    The St. Agnes Outside the Walls complex in Rome, on Via Nomentana is strongly influenced by early Christian and medieval remains.The site includes the Catacombs of St. Agnes, the fourth century Basilica of Constantine of which remain only the walls, the mausoleum of Saint Constance whose vaults bear remarkable fourth century frescos, and the basilica of Honorius from the seventh century which is the present church and monastery, with a mention for the special mosaics in the apse of the same era.

     

    Basilica of St. Lawrence Outside the Walls

    Basilica of St. Lawrence Outside the Walls

    Basilica of St. Lawrence Outside the Walls

    This beautiful and original basilica, dating back to the sixth century took its present form in the thirteenth. It was largely rebuilt after the Allied bombings of San Lorenzo during the Second World War.

    Must-See Square of Rome

    st peter square

    St. Peter Square

    The squares or piazzas of Rome are among the main attractions of the city. Whether you wish to immerse yourself in the history of the city or just relax, meet up, take an aperitif, or just hang out!
    Here is an overview of four must-see squares of the eternal city.

    Capitol Square Rome

    Capitol Square

    They are mostly of a Renaissance appearance but often date back to antiquity, like Piazza Campidoglio, the Capitol Square, on the hill of the same name, which was the religious heart of the ancient city (see also the history of Capitol Hill).
    Its present appearance was designed by Michelangelo in the sixteenth century.It is occupied by the Senate Palace (Town Hall) and the buildings which house the Capitoline Museum, with its important ancient works.

    Continue reading Must-See Square of Rome

    Square of Rome (continued)

    Besides the four squares mentioned in the article on the better known Great Squares of Rome, we can count on many others of great interests.

    Piazza Venezia

    Piazza Venezia

    Hard to miss is Piazza Venezia, located near the Capitol Hill. It’s the main crossroads of the city center occupied by the imposing white mass of the monument to Victor Emmanuel II (Vittoriano), built in the honor of the first king of united Italy.

    Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo (the people’s square) is very ample, pleasant and popular as a now pedestrian square. It is at the end of Via del Corso, the shopping street that leads from Piazza Venezia to the foot of the beautiful Pincio Park.A large Obelisc is erected in its center.As the name suggests, it is often used as a place of gatherings and celebrations.

    Campo dei Fiori

    Campo dei Fiori

    Campo dei Fiori (Field of Flowers), is lively central square that hosts a food and flower market in the mornings. In its center is a statue of Giordano Bruno. Burned at the stake for heresy in 1600, it serves as a reminder of the darker times of the church.The Campo hosts many bars frequented in the evenings and a few restaurants.

    Piazza Farnese

    Piazza Farnese

    Adjacent is Piazza Farnese, in a completely different style. It is extremely elegant and located in front of one of the finest buildings of Rome, the Palazzo Farnese. Today it is the Embassy of France in Italy.Two beautiful antique baths were installed there and made into fountains.

    Piazza Bocca della Verita

    Piazza Bocca della Verita

    Piazza Bocca della Verita is situated in the ancient Forum Boarium (cattle market). It is one of the most suggestive of the city, occupied by Roman buildings in outstanding states of conservation and a former church whose porch hosts the famous manhole which gives the name to the square, the “mouth of truth”.

    Piazza Montecitorio

    Piazza Montecitorio

    Very attractive and central are also Piazza Montecitorio which holds the Italian Parliament and an obelisk at its center and the adjoining square called Piazza Colonna which boasts the impressive Column of Marcus Aurelius erected during the Roman Empire.

    We must also include other beautiful square in front of famous monuments: Piazza del Quirinale outside the Presidential Palace, near the Trevi Fountain; la Piazza della Rotonda facing the Pantheon and the nearby Piazza della Minerva; Santa Maria in Trastevere in front of the church of the same name and the Piazza della Repubblica, of modern design.

    Rome by scooter

    scooter à Rome

    To see Rome by scooter is a very good way to visit the city, although it is not without its risks!
    You can rent one of these machines at various points of the city.

    This will allow you to easily reach the major sights a little away from the center, like the Janiculum Hill or Monte Mario, the Appian Way, and others.

    Many Romans use this form of transport. ,Almost by necessity, given the difficulty of automobile traffic and parking. The ZTL (central areas closed to most traffic) are freely accessible on two wheels.

    One must be very careful, especially in rainy weather when the center of the paved roads become very slippery.

    Cruises on the Tiber

    Croisière sur le Tibre à RomeCruises on the Tiber had been suspended (since 2014), apparently due to lack of maintenance of the banks of the river.
    Refer to the official website for see information and be aware of a possible resumption of the service.

    The Battelli di Roma service offers a course on the Tiber, from 16 €, as well as “cruise” with dinner, or on the “boat-bars”

    Traffic in Rome

    Traffic in Rome center

    ztl romaTraffic is limited in most of central Rome, usually in week days, and on Friday and Saturday nights.

    ZTL Roma

    ZTL Roma

    “ZTL” (Zona a Traffico Limitato)signs mark the entry points to these areas which are overlooked cameras.The times when traffic is limited are written on the signs, showing when only local residents and special permit holders are allowed to circulate.

     

    varco attivo ZTL Roma

    Luminous signs indicate when a ZTL area is closed to traffic (VARCO ATTIVO)

    The luminous displays indicates whether the area is currently closed “VARCO ATTIVO” or if traffic is permitted there, “VARCO NON ATTIVO”

    The main area (east of the Tiber) with limited traffic can be bypassed via the Colosseum, Termini Station, the “Muro Torto” northwards near Villa Borghese, along the River Tiber, via Piazza Bocca della Verità, the Circus Maximus, and around the Palatine hill.
    Furhtermore, the Trastevere district, west of the Tiber is also provided with ZTL, as Testaccio, San Lorenzo and Monti.

     

    See the map of ZTL limited traffic areas and times:

     

    mappa ztl roma

    Map of ZTL zones with timetables

     

    Parking in Rome

    Regarding parking, “blue” lines generally indicate you have to pay to park (metered). Parking spaces marked by white lines may be subject to time limits, but are free.Yellow parking places are reserved for special purposes: for the disabled, police, etc…

    It is generally difficult to find a parking spot. Nevertheless, along the Lungotevere (along the river), it is frequently found.
    On Friday and Saturday nights, traffic in the center is dense and slow and parking is extremely difficult to find.

     

    Rome by Car

    Vehicles registered outside Italy are more likely to be broken into. So do avoid leaving stuff inside, and it is better to remove the parcel shelf to show that the trunk is empty.

     

    Accidents

    In case of an accident causing any potential injuries, by law you must call the (local) police or the Carabinieri to make their observations.

     

    Emergency phone numbers :

    • Police : 113
    • Carabiniers (gendarmes) : 112
    • Firemen : 115
    • Ambulance : 118

    Tivoli : Hadrian’s Villa, Villa d’Este and Villa Gregoriana

    Hadrian's Villa

    Hadrian’s Villa

    Hadrian’s Villa

    Its scale and its preservation, this villa is one of the largest in the region, a beautiful example of Roman architecture, with several innovations. Built from the year 126 AD, Emperor Hadrian conceived it drawing on his recent travels in the eastern provinces, Athens and Alexandria in particular.

    The villa was embellished by successive emperors, until it was cleared of artworks by Constantine (306-337) who transferred them to Constantinople.It was destroyed during the barbarian invasions of the Middle Ages and used as a stone quarry for the construction of the houses of Tivoli. The excavations and restorations began in the 19th century.

    Among its attractions are the Pecile with its central garden and a pond; the Philosophers’ Hall with its niches: the maritime Theatre where columns surround a circular water basin in the middle of which is a sort of island; two spas, small and large bathrooms; the small artificial valley of the Canopus, inspired by its counterpart in Alexandria, occupied by a pond surrounded by columns and statues, ending with a fountain-temple; the complex of the Imperial Palace includes Piazza d’Oro where summer banquets were held, and many other wonders.
