Photo TR: The Roman Empire Tour


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

I went to Florence, Verona, Venice, Assisi, Orvieto, and Rome during spring break this year. It was absolutely beautiful. Everything from the countryside to the architecture was just stunning. I'd love to return someday and visit the parks!

Just caught up on this thread. The architecture in the Vatican is just incredible. And it's hilarious that all the little parks rip-off Disney! Great photo's!

Rome is awesome - hoping to go back next year as well as get to Venice, Milan and of course....Miriblandia.

 

I was giggling over the fact that they were selling ashtrays and shot glasses (sinny stuff?) in the souvenir shops on top of St. Peters. I was surprised that they didn't have a Vatican bong or Vatican condoms that you could buy. Even though I quit smoking, I just had to buy the St Peter's ashtray...it was just too awesome to pass by! It made a great conversation piece for my smoking friends when we hosted poker when we got back!

Everytime I see a Photo TR of this park it just SCREAMS of the China Happy Valley's.

I fully agree. The similarities are endless. They can easily name it Happy Valley Europe

 

Rainbow Magicland needs a few years to settle in. The main issue with this park is lack of shade. Once the plantation is matured and they manage to open up all the rides it can become a top park in Europe. In it's present condition ( large percentage of rides not open) it's average at best.
