Just found this site last night - great site.

We're thinking of using the train from Civitavecchia to Rome and we're wondering are there Restrooms/toliets on the train?

I'm sure i'll be back with more questions lol

Do not worry...

Italy is up-to-date civilized enough to have toilets on their trains...

Most of the trains from Civitavecchia to Rome are long-distance-trains from Pisa etc. So choose the IC trains. They are faster. Check schedule at http://www.trenitalia.com

Therefore no adult diapers necessary for this trip. It's only about one hour.

Happy New Year + Happy Cruising

Thanks - i was going to try and use the Roma S. Pietro stop in Rome - now when i put that into the time table it comes up with just regional trains, are they ok ?

They seem to be the quickest into Rome as well - The Roma S. Pietro stop is the closest to the Vatican ?

Well one of the reason why the Vatican is also called St. Peter is that it is located in St. Peter.

I can tell you next week when I am on this tour with MSC MUSICA.

We appointed our local tour guide to St. Peter for a Vatican tour. So I guess that this should be the nearest point...

Hi there
Speaking of toilets, generally speaking, are they easy to find in Europe? Where's the best place to find the washroom without paying a couple of euros each time? I'll be in Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey...

Hi MarchCruiser,

first of all: Happy New Year!

Depends how clean you like it.

Mostly I am willing to spend 50 EuroCENT (not EURO only Cent!!!) for a clean toilet.

Good places are railways stations, department stores, self-service restaurants, hotel lobby of major hotels. I try to avoid any public toilets without attendants.

The more south you are in Europe the more acceptable it is just to ask to go to a restaurant without consumption.

In some Eastern European countries I would recommend to have some adults diapers and just use them in a case of emergency.

Mostly you find signs like "WC", "00", "PP" (only men), or pictogram of man and woman.

Do not worry: the majority of Europeans know the use of toilets and appreciate them more than to pee in the booshes or to trees.

I am sure you will even have less problems than you might think. Especially South Europe is very civilised as private bathrooms have Bidets and in Turkey all toilets have a water tube below the seats which allow you to clean your ... very carefully.

Good Morning from the Cruise Terminal in Genoa (Stazione Marittima):

In London I do not find toilets which look so fine as those public one in the cruise terminal of Genoa:

There is no reason to carry a camping toilet with you when you are in Italy.

If you are travelling in an InterCity train which will not stop at Roma S. Pietro (Vatican) you may find these toilets:

If you are travelling with a RegionalTrain which also call Roma S. Pietro - it looks this way:

If you are in Roma Termini-Station you just follow this sign:

http://images19.fotki.com/v381/photo...TermWC1-vi.jpg
http://images14.fotki.com/v386/photo...TermWC2-vi.jpg

So have 0,70 EUR with you in 50 Cent, 20 Cent, 10 Cent and 5 Cent coins with you. A change machine is just in front of the entrance area.

Good luck in Rome.

Regards,
HeinBloed
