Has anyone been to Bassano Romano near Lake Bracciano?

We have the opportunity to stay at a nice house/villa in Bassano Romano close to Lake Bracciano for two weeks next summer. We would like to get a better sense of what the village of Bassano Romano is like. Bassano Romano won't be our only destination, but it would be good to get some feel for the town--restaurants, cafes, shopping and general livability--since it would be our home base. Thanks!

Childfriendly seaside, island or lake resort in Lazio  (2 Answers)

Hello VT members!

I would be thankful for recommendations as to where to spend one or two weeks in July with my wife and our two 3 years old twin girls, preferable within one or to hours from Rome (Fiumicino Airport).

We would like to go somewhere not to crowded, rather a small town or a village where we and the kinds can safely go for a stroll, take a swim, visit the local church, buy bread at the bakery, have coffee at the piazza and the like. We do not in particular care for water-sports or night clubs.

We prefer finding a place where we can rent an apartment or a small house for self-catering, though bed and breakfast is also an option. Since we do not intend to bring a car, it's essential that everything (beach, shops, restaurants, town centre, etc.) is within walking distance.

Thank you very much for any suggestions!

Train / Bus maps schedules for Italy and especially to Amesano, Frosinone  (11 Answers)

My mother and I are planning a trip to Italy and I am interested in seeing the village of Amesano where my great grandparents Giuseppe Tiberi and Maria Panici Tiberi lived before moving to the US in 1906. My mom has been there but with my Uncle who drove. Neither of us is interested in driving in Italy. Is there a bus or train we could take there, so I too can visit? And does anyone know of a good map of train and bus routes, preferably with schedules that includes all of Italy, not just the main cities? Online? or one I could buy and from where?

Would greatly appreciate any and all information.

accomodation on the coast in lazio  (4 Answers)

My boyfriend and I are planning a two week holiday next year at end of April/beginning of May.
We're thinking of going to the areas round Formia, Gaeta... have heard it's well worth a visit
What is the weather usually like at that time of year? Is it possible to swim yet? (I'm fairly brave.... coming from the UK swimming in a freezing cold sea is not so unusual...)
Are there are any quiet, 'out of the way' places on the coast? We like the countryside rather than big towns
Also plan to do a bit of hiking, perhaps in the same area? Any hiking trails?
I'm specifically looking for information on accomodation in the area - self catering or bed and breakfasts (not so expensive)

Hope you can help?

accomodation in or near vacone  (15 Answers)

We would like to stay in Vacone (about 70 km north east of Rome) for one night in September. I can't find any accomodation on the net. Does anybody knows if there is a B&B, Guest House or Hotel in Vacone or very near (up to 5 miles). We will be travelling in the campervan and it doesn't look like there is a campsite that close to Vacone. The reason we need it in Vacone is that we will be having a dinner there and some drinks so will be unable to drive after that.
I think the nearest campsite is Camping Monti Del Sole.
Any suggestions will be welcomed!

Forum included in Roma Pass?  (1 Answer)

I've heard that the Roman Forum now has a fee and that it is included in a combo ticket with the Colosseum and Palatine Hill for about 14 dollars (per Rick Steve's site). Assuming this is true, I am not sure if I should just buy that combo ticket, or still plan to get the Roma Pass. I can't figure out if it is included when I look at the - although I may certainly be overlooking it.

We also plan to visit the Borghese Gallery and I want to reserve our visit asap. (We arrive in Rome on June 7th and will be there until the 10th.) I know that the Roma Pass does include the Borghese so we are trying to decide if the best buy will be the Roma Pass (23 euro) and pay for the full or discounted entry to the Roman Forums or to buy the combo ticket that Rick Steve's site mentions and then pay our way into the Borghese at full price (8,50 euro I believe).

I also know the Roma pass includes some transportation - we will be staying near the Piazza Navona. Will we be able to utilize the public transportation to get around during our visit?

Thanks in advance for any help with this!

Where to Stay Terracina/Sperlonga ?  (2 Answers)

We have just booked flights to Rome Ciampino for a week at Easter and would like suggestions and recommendations on where to stay. We are considering staying in either Terracina or Sperlonga as we have never been there before and other posts have been very complimentary about the towns.
We will be looking to rent an apartment and will have a hired car to get around.

Our kids are aged 7 and 11, so looking for interesting things to do as a family, we will definiteley be visiting Rome.

Need advice...staying in the countryside outside of Rome.  (1 Answer)

Hello everyone. We are traveling to Rome in late October and staying central for 3 nights. We'll then be cruising out of Civitavecchia for 2 weeks, returning on a Tuesday morning. Our flight home is on the following Thursday afternoon. We are considering staying outside of Rome for those 2 nights if we can get some good recommendations on places that are easy to get to via public transportation, and will be good "decompression" places to stay. I'd like to wind down after all that sightseeing before returning home.

I'm picturing a small place, maybe a B & B in the countryside, where we can just relax during the day, and have a nice long leisurely dinner at night. Really want to avoid renting a car if possible. Any suggestions on the above? Thanks for your ideas...

Rome to Sorrento - Drive or Rail??  (4 Answers)

Hi folks -

My original plan of taking my mom to see where her parents are from around Bari, has grown to the Amalfi Coast and has grown again to Rome. My plan is to fly into Rome and spend a few days, go to Sorrento to spend some days around the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Pompeii, and then to drive across to Bari.

My question is would it be best to use public transportation in and around Rome until I get to Sorrento or is it worth it to rent the car in Rome and drive down to the Amalfi Coast??

Any advice would be much appreciated. I am doing this on my own and want to make it a wonderful trip for my 80 year old mom.

My flight in the morning leaves about 9:30 a.m. from Fiumicino and so I need to catch a very early morning taxi. Question is: Is Customs opened 24 hours per day so I can leave early. If don't know, is there an email address or way of communicating with someone that knows this answer so I can make arrangements for a taxi to pick me up at a certain time to leave for the airport. Any recommendations on when I should leave the port in the taxi to have plenty of time for the flight?

Telephone  (4 Answers)

I am travelling to Italy in 1 week but my phone company said that my US cell phone does not work in Italy. If I wanted to have the ability to make phone calls to the US, what do you recommend I do (this would be only 2-4 phone calls per week for 2 weeks). Are there many public phones in Rome? Is there a pay phone card that I can purchase with minutes to the US? Can someone help on this please as I have never been in Italy and don't know about phone service and placing phone calls to US.

Hotels are not set up for three. We want to stay outside of Rome but able to access it in not too long a jaunt. Looked into a couple villa sites round Lazio and Umbria with some decent prices. Looked into Monastrys but not much luck in bargains there or privacy. Anyone know of some other interesting options?

Really appreciate the input. Thanks
