  1. Rome is wonderful but it is also full of trash too!! Such a shame! The authorities should spend some of the millions of euros they get from the tourist tax of 3 euros per day and really clean up the city. Its appalling.

    • The Romans also pay a lot for garbage collection. Let’s see what the next election will be. Joseph de Maistre: “Every nation gets the government it deserves.”

  2. I live in Virginia in the USA. My desire is to come for several and do the 2020 Marathon. I would appreciate any and all info on marathon. It will be my first time to Italy, so I need lots of guidance.
    Thank you,

    • Hi Teresa,
      there are more events in Rome during the year. I believe, you are asking about the Rome Marathon in April. Registrations are not yet open. Here you find information about the Rome Marathon, procedures are every year the same. Only the location of the Marathon Village may change.
      If you have more questions, let me know.

  3. Will be in Rome during Christmas. I need to get to a dinner Christmas day evening around 7:30 pm & be picked up around 11:30 pm. Are the taxis running at that time? I heard that transportation is limited on Christmas.

  4. Hello,

    I really appreciate all of your practical tips for visiting Rome at Easter. Are all of the tours self-booking, or can you make specific recommendations for me somehow? I could use the help figuring out the best way to spend our time, making tour bookings, and an Easter meal reservation.


  5. Hello. I would like to climb to the top of St Peters Basilica. I will be taking an early tour of the Sistine Chapel and St Peters, which does not include a climb up the dome. I would like to climb the dome after my tour is over at 11:30. Is there a way of doing this without waiting in a long line for the elevator? Someone told me if I book a Vox Mundi audio tour that I could skip the line for the dome. Is this true and how do I do this?
    Thank You

    • Hi Loren,
      L’m sorry, but the Vox Mundi tour for the dome is no more available since last autumn. At the moment I know only one tour including St. Peter’s Basilica and the dome but it starts already at 8:15. I suggest to ask your guide of the St Peter’s tour for help.
      Enjoy your stay in Rome!
