As you may have guessed from the thread title...

I'm going to Rome!

Next month, I am flying from Washington, DC to Rome, Italy for my first-ever trip outside the North American continent. I cannot wait! I'm going with my girlfriend, who has been to Rome before (as well as a bunch of other places in Europe), so she will be my travel guide.

But I'm also interested in hearing from SG. Give me tips about traveling, or stories about Rome or Italy, or whatever you want to share!

See below for a few Level 1 Rome-related giveaways and one that has nothing at all to do with Rome.

Vado a Roma!

If any SGers in Italy want to meet up -- looking at you, Caio! -- contact me on Steam!

Mostly ROME-RELATED GIVEAWAYS

  1. Grand Ages: Rome
  2. Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar
  3. Roads of Rome 3
  4. When in Rome
  5. RiME I know, not technically related to Rome... but hey, RiME... Rome... close enough!

I heard my firm is going to drive trains in Slovenia c:
I don't know how it will work though, if they will hire Slovenian personnel or teach some of us Slovenian rules and signaling. We'll see :D

O interesting :o
I don't think the rules and signaling should be too different? :o

I went to Nova Gorica a couple days ago (we have a few colleagues who are qualified for Slovenian signaling, but are allowed to drive only on that short line from Gorizia to Nova Gorica) and the signals are completely different. Probably they are different but mean the same thing, but I don't really know.
I don't really want to learn them, I've had a guftul of signals and books last year!! :D

Safe travels, mate! Italy has some of the nicest cities I've ever been to: Florence and Venice. Rome is also really great!
There's so much history on every street! And I had the pleasure of meeting a lot of nice people there. Hope that you have an amazing trip!

I've never been but it's definitely in the near future. I've seen most of Italy, some places twice but for some reason Rome was never in my path before. I hope you have a good time but honestly, I don't see how you couldn't. Italy is a beautiful and romantic country and you're going with your girlfriend. You'd have to work hard at it not to have a good time :)
Also, brilliant list of GAs!

Have fun in Rome and thanks for the GAs.
I haven't been there or in the USA.
I should travel around more and see the world, but my purse and I tend to disagree on that.
It's always a nice experience to see new places and people.

Buon viaggio!
Rome is a beautiful city, full of history... But indeed has issues, many linked to the archaeological aspect, I think (but I don't live there, so I don't know very precisely what their problems are, and media usually tend to exhaggerate them, as usual)

In effetti ho un vago ricordo, ma poteva sembrare razzista se da Bergamo mi mettevo a criticare Roma... Quindi preferisco essere diplomatico, lascio che siano i romani a farlo :P

Guarda, io sono di vicino Napoli, ma vivo qui da anni.
Una critica comune che faccio è la mancanza di senso civico, purtroppo. ( si veda anche il referendum sulla privatizzazioneAtac, ad esempio)

È sicuramente un problema diffuso in tutta Italia, quello del senso civico... Poi fortunatamente in alcuni posti si riesce ad essere più inquadrati che in altri, e si nota meno. Ma è assolutamente trasversale - e molto triste.

sicuro, io ho fatto dopo un po' di anni l'estate scorsa un viaggetto con la mia ragazza in trentino (poi innsbruck a natale ma lì è proprio un altro mondo) e passando il confine (quando inizi a vedere solo bandiere di trento al posto di quelle italiane xD) sembra davvero di andare in un altro paese, per il resto da emiliano al 100% posso criticare ben poco delle altre regioni italiane visto come siamo messi pure qua.. poi vivendo ogni tanto a palermo ho imparato a non lamentarmi più di niente e ad arrangiarmi ancora di più, ma per uno straniero è difficile xD

Da napoletano, trovo i trasporti a Roma fantastici. Il che un po' dovrebbe farti avere un''idea della situazione qui.

Punti di vista! ahah

Mi ricordo un viaggio fino a Garibaldi in cui, fossi stata made in Bethesda. mi sarei compenetrata con la porta del tram.
Ma si, questione di punti di vista.
Fatto sta che Roma è oggettivamente più grande, nonché la capitale, si ci aspetterebbe un pochetto di più, va XD

Vabbè dai, ora che arriva a San Giovanni possiamo finalmente dire che esiste... il problema è che probabilmente da lì la prolungheranno fino ai Fori Imperiali e poi basta

I liked Rome, when I was there for one day. I think Frascati is worth a trip.
