    ROME by vindiboy1 | Photobucket

    Rome easy peasy , great to visit we stayed at the campsite shown, I will dig out the details and post later , we rode the tourist bus round the city, jump on and off as you like ,There is also a local bus stop outside the camp site for access to the city all very easy, on the open top bus we had a massive downpour of rain, we left the camp site in full sun wearing shorts and tee shirts, really got caught out but the sun soon returned and we soon dried out,local touts were selling plastic macs, great value, they lasted about 5 minutes hee hee,

    VISITING ROME - Plan C - (14May19)

    Started as 2 from Ireland, 2 from UK - go to Rome and stay in 4 bed apartment, I was limited by unknown hospital op on knee but not a major hurdle. Oh the woes of planning.
    Apartment booked for 4 in early Feb. Flights booked for 2 from Dublin also. We departed mid-Feb for trip around Spain and Portugal for 3 months - what could go wrong?

    Plan A
    Plan A soon became difficult when 3 weeks after booking the flights one of the Irish group was not able to travel (flying from Dublin).

    Hence a flight ticket available for 115 (Cost of a name change) for anyone Dublin to Ciampino on 26 June for 6 days.
    Depart Dub 26 Jun at 06:50, Depart Ciampino on 01 July at 21:00.

    Sis-in-Law travelling from Newry if anyone wants a lift from N.I.

    Plan B
    Tried to amend the original apartment booking details to find we could not uncover the various booking options offered initially. Had to cancel the apartment and start again.

    Plan C
    Had indication from hospital that op will not happen until September - so we can plan to use the MH - hence late planning question above.
    Booked another 2 room apartment - but now considering campsite options. Have made contact with Garage Berado, S. Rome to ask if we could have discounted parking for the week.

    Aiming to meet up with a Belgium chap who is living in S. France whom we met 21/2 yrs ago en route to Rome thus spending at least 1 week easy travelling.

    THANKYOU's to all who have responded so promptly to aid our travel plans. We shall ponder for a few more days as we guess others will populate our knowledge store.

    Should anyone wish to join us using the flight ticket - please do not hesitate to contact me, we can accommodate most tastes and needs.
    Live Life, Enjoy Life, Have Fun, You only have one.

    I cant help with Rome, but I do wish you well with the knee and remember plans are useless but planning is indispensable.

    Google Maps This is the site we used in Rome it is at N41.87595 E12.55515 it was 15 euro a night plus 1 euro each tax well worth it for it's location, bus stops outside for the city,large pitches and a bar restaurant on site ,we were in Italy for about 3 months started out at Tuscany ,after a spell in Hungary, and got as far as Pisa, good trip, free Sostas all the way easy to find with relevant publications Drivers are a bit mad , if there is a space on the road one of them wants to be in it hee hee but no problems over all , great trip.
    Thanks Stanski thanked for this post

    PISA Winery by vindiboy1 | Photobucket Pisa is a great place to visit, we parked our van about 50 metres from the leaning tower and we stayed there for about an hour before a local cop noticed we were there and asked us to move, we did and parked up in a side street for a few hours seeing all we wanted to and then drove on to a free SOSTA at a winery and had a night there, it was very interesting as truck loads of grapes were being brought in to be crushed .
