We're going to be in Rome for 2 days before our next cruise, Jan. 2008 and was hoping to find out how to travel to the sites we want to see.
We would appreciate any help.
Thank you in advance.

http://images8.fotki.com/v154/photos...33/wave-vi.gif First, we have never been to Rome but will be there in June for four days prior to our cruise. This site has been immensely helpful. Just type in Rome or some such in the "find" category. We are staying in a hotel and can walk to the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Coloseum, Piazza Navorno. You can also get an off-on bus to many of these places. We're going to see sites in the a.m. and take time to smell the roses in the afternoon by selecting a plaza, sipping wine & people watching. Hank, on this site, is very helpful. We've taken his advice on a lot of what we're doing. Hope this is of some help. We also bought a couple of tour books of Rome & Italy. They, too, are helpful. Arrivederci.

You will probably see the most by using the hop on hop off tour but remember Rome is busy all year round and if there is something really special you would like to see plan for queues

Moeve I hate to sound stupid but I don't understand what "plan for queues" means. http://cruise-chat.com/groupee_commo...icon_frown.gif
Thanks again,

Sandy, If Moeve is speaking the Queen's English, "queues" means "lines". Moeve is saying to be prepared to spend a lot of time in lines for special attractions (I think).

If you want to hire a driver for the afternoon to get your bearings let me know I have a good one thats fairly cheap and not only will you get your bearings you will see a lot of the drive by stuff that is a killer to walk from point a to b to see.

A good map of Rome is essential if you want to find your way around. You can see the Vatican, St. Angelos castle, Campa del Fiori, the Pantheon, the Trevi fountain, and the Spanish steps in a relatively short walk if you follow the correct route. If you want to see the inside of the Sistine Chapel, my advide would be to arrive very early as the line can easily wrap around two blocks very quickly.
