WHAT TO SEE IN ROME
“Rome is not a city like any other. It is a great museum, a living room to be crossed on tiptoe ” – Alberto Sordi
A few minutes from the terminal bus, you will find the Tiburtina metro station, from where you can reach the old town centre. Take line B, get off at the Colosseum stop and visit the Flavian Amphitheatre, via dei Fori Imperiali, Piazza del Campidoglio and the Capitoline Museums. Continue towards Piazza Venezia, where the Altare della Patria stands and decide whether to proceed towards the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, or towards the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Go to the other side of the Tiber to visit Castel Sant’Angelo and find yourself just a few minutes from St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums. Now stroll through the streets of Trastevere, climb to the top of the Janiculum Terrace and admire the sun setting over the Eternal City.
ROMAN GASTRONOMIC SPECIALTIES
The Roman gastronomic tradition is full of unmissable specialties and all to be savored. The undisputed queen of the first courses is carbonara. Other typical dishes are bucatini amatriciana, gricia, spaghetti with cheese and pepper and rigatoni alla pajata. Among the main courses, the Roman-style tripe, the tail alla vaccinara (stewed oxtail and vegetables), the saltimbocca alla romana ( viel with ham and sage), the sausage with beans and pork rinds, the coratella (mixed entrails) and the grilled lamb (scottadito) will satisfy all palates.
The artichokes alla giudea are characteristic: do not consider them as just a fry, but a piece of Roman history … a must.
Street food lovers, on the other hand, will appreciate the supplì on the phone (fried rice and stringy cheese croquettes), the pizza scrocchiarella (crunchy pizza) and the trapizzino, the youngest of the local culinary must-haves.
For the sweet tooth there are the sour cherry and ricotta tart and the maritozzi (sweet, soft bread usualy filled with whipped cream).
TIBURTINA BUS STATION
The area consists of a small square. The departure platforms are placed on both sides, one adjacent to each other, in an oblique direction, and are delimited by the yellow stripes. Above the sidewalk, there are vertical signposts, one for each platform. As is known, the indication of the platform is also written in a note on the ticket. There are no signposts nor displays indicating the different carriers.
