Rome ruins is a great sight - especially when you think what ancient rome offered before going downward: concrete domes, fresh hot and cold water, sufficient drainage system, floor heating....and that when the rest of europe was still living in shacks.
^If you want to be near Termini Station, Hotel Yes is excellent. But if you're planning on just staying in Rome (aka not doing a lot of regional train day trips), I'd pay more to stay in a nicer area like near the Pantheon, which has much better cafes, gelaterias, etc. Though being near Termini does give you easy subway access certain sights like the Vatican, Colosseum, Forum, etc.

Parcolido is on the east coast area not far from Fiumcino airport. From Rome central it took around just under one hour. Although bigger then the other two smaller parks i reported on, it is still mainly for those who count coaster. Photos....
To get to Parcolido one needs to get to Piranide metro stop Line B. From there change to Roma Lido (grey line) You need to get off at Lido Centro and the park is about 3/4 minutes walk from the station.
I got there around 7pm. The park was deserted. The park closd at midnight the day i was there.
The reason for coming. I know it's sad. Head hanging in shame.
Mine train Il Treno Delle Miniere.
Hooray, finally found someone human, even if they are climbing the rope course.
Opposite Parcolido is a small children park. No coasters.
Parco Morelli is another children park located in south east Rome. The park was not on Rcdb when i visited it. It was the hardest park to get to as it was no way near any metro or train stations. I took the bus to this park. I don't have the bus number, as my notes are not on me, but i'll give direction to this park later. Photos....
Entrance to Parco Morelli.
The coaster is called "Le Tour de Paris"
Eiffel tower in Rome. Bonus :-)
Thanks all for reading my report. Good things come to those who wait. I've left the best till last. I have two more large updates left. One for Vatican City and One for Rainbow Magicland. Stay tuned they'll be coming soon.
Vatican City, the smallest country in the world. This place is amazing. Absolutely stunning. Nearest metro station is Ottaviano, which is on line A.From the station Vatican City is a few minutes walk. .
Walking to the entrance.
First look at St. Peter's Square.
Swiss guards by the door.
St Peter's basilica.
Looking back at the square.
Inside...... Due to poor lighting inside some photos did not come out well.
Next up was the climbing up the Cupola (Dome) One would take the lift to roof level then walk up the remaining steps but during my visit the lift was not operating so i had to climb the 551 steps. It's 5 euros extra to climb to the top or 7 euros if you use the lift part way and climb the rest.. The view from the top is stunning.
Looking down from the Gallery at roof level.
tight stairs going to the top. If you are Claustrophobic, then it's best to not do this.
View from the top.
Palace of the Governorate of Vatican City State.
Close up of Palace of the Governorate of Vatican City State.
The museum building.
The famous post card view.
I thought i got rid of you. How the hell did you climb up all these steps anyway?
Steps to go back down.
Back at roof level for coming down only. Here you will find toilets, water drinking fountain, souvenir shop.
If you look at the crown on top of the dome, that's where we were a few minutes ago. Taking all the pics of the surroundings.
Close up, it was crowded up there a while back. Seams i bought the crowds down with me.
Back down again.
Thanks for looking at my photo TR. Hope you guys enjoyed this update. Final update from Rainbow Magicland still to come.
My brother is studying abroad in Rome for the fall semester and our family is planning to visit during the week of Thanksgiving. I'm really excited, as it'll be my first time out of the US and it's to a place that I've wanted to visit forever. Although none of the parks will be open, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a fantastic time; there's plenty of other stuff to do.
Anyway, your Photo TR has just made me about 100,000,000 times more excited!
