Pickpockets on Bus 64

Edit This

A word of Caution to the tourist in Rome :

Bus 64 is notorious for pickpockets and creepy people in general. This is the major tourist bus which travels the route between the Vatican and Temini Station. If possible, use bus 40 instead which takes a simlar route and is much safer.

Fountains

Edit This
Roman drinking fountain. The water that is continually flowing out of those little fountains found around the streets of Rome is refreshing and safe to drink. It flows down from the mountain springs outside the city and is quite good. These small fountains are called "il nasone" by the Romans because the curved pipe resembles a "big nose".

The water that is continually flowing out of those little fountains found around the streets of Rome is cold, refreshing and absolutely safe to drink. It flows constantly down from the mountain springs on the outskirts of the city and is quite good. These small fountains are called "il nasone" by the Romans as the curved pipe resembles a "big nose."
As well as these, the water in the larger, decorative fountains is also safe to drink, unless there is a sign posted "acqua non potabile." Mind you do not bathe in them. If you are caught in a fountain, you can more..

Vatican Post Office

Edit This

Some Romans, frustrated with the some times too leisurely rate of the Italian Post, have turned to the Vatican for help. It costs the same as Italian mail, but you must buy Vatican stamps and can only mail them (get this) in the Vatican. In addition to the "Citta' del Vaticano" postmark, you can tell your friends that the stamps were blessed by the Pope. There are Vatican post offices inside the Vatican museums (near the entrance) and two locations in Piazza San Pietro

I was in Rome 24th - 30th June. I sent postcards from the centre of Rome on the 26th which arrived in more..
