The Essentials Getting There
By plane: The Italian capital is served by two airports. The most widely used is Leonardo da Vinci Airport (Fiumicino). The quickest way to the city centre is via train which costs €11 one-way. The other airport, Ciampino Airport, is the airport which budget airlines use. A bus service connects it to Termini Station. One-way journeys cost €8. By train: Most trains travelling to Rome from other Italian cities and Europe terminate in Termini Station. It is right in the middle of the city centre. By bus: There are a number of stations you could end up in if travelling to Rome via bus. The most widely used is Lepanto and EUR Fermi.

Climate
Thanks to its location in southern Italy, temperatures in Rome's winters can become quite cool but they usually don't drop below 5°C. The coldest months are from December-February. Once March comes around the temperature begins to steadily rise, although for the next two months (March and April) it is more prone to rain than in other months. Come May the days become very warm and stay dry also. If you enjoy hot weather, then July and August are the months for you when it is very warm and very sunny. September stays dry for the most part but showers begin to show their ugly faces once more in October.

There aren't many cities in the world like Roma. No matter which way you turn you set your eyes on imposing monuments, dramatic statues or lavish fountains. Walking around the streets today it is easy to envisage what it would've been like centuries ago when crowds thronged to the Colossuem, Caesar's foot soldiers paroled the streets and everyone was decked in sandals. Once darkness falls it isn't as lively as some other European cities, but if you don t find a bar which gets your pulse racing don't worry - the city looks twice as breathtaking at night.

Getting Around
On foot: The best way to get around Rome is on foot. Most of the city's premier attractions within close proximity. By metro: Rome's metro comprises of just two lines, although some stops are in particularly convenient locations, particularly in the Vatican.

Hostelworld Guide for Rome

Cheap Eats
Al Picchio, 40, Via del Lavatore Located just one minute from the Trevi Fountain, Al Picchio is extremely good value for its location. Staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere, particularly in the cavern-style part of this eatery downstairs. Pick bruschetta to start, risotto for your main, and you'll get a full meal for less than €10. Open daily from 9.30am-3.30pm and from 6pm-10.30pm. Bar Gelateria, Piazza di Trevi 90 It might call itself a 'gellateria', but you can get a pizza in this 'gellateria' for just €6. Its location is second to none you can hear the bellowing water from the Trevi Fountain which is just around the corner as you eat. Marvellous! Open daily from 7am-1am. American Bar, Borgo Angelico With many combo-deals such as 1 coke+1 pizza for €5, or 1 sandwich+1 coke for €4, you can do worse than a quick snack from American Bar. Handy if you are peckish before or after a trip to the Vatican Museum or St Peter's Basilica. Open daily from 10am-5pm. La Caravella, 32 Via Degli Scipioni If you fancy pushing the boat out a little and spending more than €10 when eating out, La Caravella does combo-menus for €11. Choose from a wide variety of first and second courses, while potatoes and salad are included also. Drinks may hike up your bill a bit though. Open daily from 11am-4pm and from 6pm-11pm, closed Thursdays.

After Dark
Living Room, Via Solferino This extremely chic bar may not seem like it's the place for backpackers on their travels, but thanks to its affiliation with the next door hostel, you're bound to find somebody here to exchange stories. Regular DJs also make it one the most happening spots in town. Open Mon-Sat 7am-3am, Sun 5pm-3am. Trinity College Bar, 6,Via del Collegio Romano 'The Trinity' has been popular with Romans and travellers alike for years and is one of the city's biggest and best bars. With three floors, you can always find somewhere to enjoy a few drinks along with the music played by the DJ who is there nightly. Not to be missed during the summer when the bar expands on to a patio. Open daily from 12 noon-2.30/3am.

Don't Miss
Vatican Museum, Viale Vaticano 100 A visit to the Vatican Museum is arguably the most inspiring experience in Rome. As you stroll through the rooms you will seldom close your mouth as each one is as jaw-dropping as the next. Along with the Sistine Chapel, other rooms you won't forget in a hurry include the Gallery of Maps and the Room of the Immaculate Conception. Open Mon-Sat from 9am-6pm although times can vary - check before visiting; admission €15. Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo Home to brutal battles between man and beast, the Colosseum is an imposing building and is Ancient Rome's most symbolic. Walking around this amphitheatre is fascinating as you try to imagine what it was like in all its glory, complete with thousands of Romans and one Julius Caesar. Open daily from 9am; admission €15.50 (EU reduced rates available). St. Peter's Basilica, Piazza San Pietro Before entering St Peter's, the first thing which strikes you is the number of detailed statues which overlook you in the square. Upon entering mosaics hang over you from every corner. You can also climb to the top of the dome for unforgettable views of the city. Basilica - Open daily 7am-7pm (Apr-Sep) & until 6pm (Oct-Mar), admission free; Dome - Open daily from 8am-5pm, admission €3.50-€5 (stairs/lift).

Mark Your Calendar
February/March - The annual Six Nations Rugby Tournament is one of the year's biggest sporting events and attracts thousands from the UK, Ireland and France every year. March - Rome Marathon While the thoughts of running over 26 miles may not appeal to everyone, over 10,000 athletes take part in this annual race which passes through the streets of Rome. April - Natale di Roma Every April 21st Romans celebrate the birth of their famous city. Aventine Hill is lit up with burning candles while a huge fireworks display can be seen over the River Tiber. May - Primo Maggio This outdoor concert on the first of May every year is the biggest music event of the year. Since it began in 1989 it has continuously attracted top international acts, along with thousands of revellers as it is free! June - Cornetto Free Music Festival Held every year, the Cornetto Free Music Festival is one of the most popular events on the Roman calendar for obvious reasons! Held in one of Rome's most celebrated squares, last year Sting played. While this year's is yet to be confirmed, it is sure to be just as impressive. July - Festa di Noantri Beginning on the third Saturday of July, this annual festival which takes place in the Trastevere district of the Italian capital is a mix of both formal and informal festivities and should not be missed. August - Gran Ballo di Ferragosto Every August 15th a fabulous dance party takes place to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption. Various squares all over Rome are livened up by performances by professional dancers, accompanied by an orchestra, who invite the audience to join in the various dances, from tango to rock, from hip hop to ballroom, and everything in between!

Gay / Lesbian Rome
Since World Gay Pride 2000, Rome's gay population has enjoyed a rebirth. New gay bars and clubs and more respect has helped its ever-growing gay and lesbian community. The city's first official gay bar, and still one of the most popular today, is The Hangar (Via in Selci 69). Other well known hotspots include the aptly named Coming Out (Via San Giovanni in Laterano, 8), L'Alibi (Vìa Monte Testaccio 44) in the Testaccio district and Gloss (Via del Cardello, 13) every Sunday. Jonothan's Angels, Via della Fossa 16, Piazza Navona This bar doesn't conform to other bars' ethic of 'image is everything' as nobody cares what you are wearing or what you look like. Instead Jonathans Angles is an eccentric bar with décor that you will not see anywhere else. You won't know what to expect when you walk in, and you may not even know whether you want to stay or not. But here's a word of advice - do. Open Mon-Sat 8pm-2am, Sun 1pm-2am. Testaccio District Rome isn't a city known for its hectic club scene, but naturally there are some clubs giving you the option of letting your hair down. If you do want to party into the early hours this area in the south-west part of the city is where to go, around the Piramide metro stop in particular. Supperclub, Via de'Nari 14 Sister to the infamous Supperclub in Amsterdam, finding this haunt is particularly challenging as it doesn't have a sign or it doesn't have any bouncers. But if you do locate it you'll be rewarded with a beer in one of Rome's hippest hotspots.

Ensure Your Return to Roma!

Gelato! Gelato!

No matter where you are in the Eternal City, you are never far from a 'gelateria' (ice-cream bar). Choose from one scoop or two, small cones or large, and a wide variety of flavours such as nutella, banana, sorbetto (fruit sorbet), while for the more adventurous there are pistachio, amoretto and chocolate liqueurs. Gelaterias open some time around 12 noon and stay open until midnight. A cone with two scoops shouldn't cost more than €2.50. Hostelworld Guide for Rome

Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi Rome's most spectacular fountain may attract tourists all day and night, but this doesn't take away from its appeal. What's better is that you can hear the gallons of water flowing over the statues of Neptune and his chariots seconds before you see it. They say if you throw a coin over your shoulder into it, it ensures your return to Roma.

September - White Night This festival is one of Europe's most popular and also takes place in Paris. For one night the city's theatres, cinemas, shops and more stay open all night, while there is a host of free entertainment all over the city also. December - Christmas in Piazza Navona In this square just minutes walk from the Pantheon, traditional Christmas markets sell festive merchandise every year. Even if you're not in town to shop it is worth dropping down. www.hostelworld.com

Get Connected easyInternetcafé, Piazza Barberini Opening on December 15th 2000, this was the first easyInternetcafé to open in Italy. Like all of the easyInternetcafés there are hundreds of terminals and this particular branch has 250 so you can rest assured you will always find a terminal. Open daily from 7am-midnight; minimum puchase €1.

Retail Therapy
Via Condotti You can't leave Rome without taking some time out to peruse the latest designs from the world's top designers. This street at the Spanish Steps is where Gucci, Valentino, Armani and more of the world's top designers have stores. You may not have the funds to pack your backpack with the latest designer gear, but you can always look. Via del Corso Located at the foot of Via Condotti, Via del Corso is a street which stretches for nearly a mile and is lined with high-street stores that most of us are more accustomed to. This includes international brands such as Benetton but Italian stores also such as Messagerie Musicali, the city s flagship music store.

Budget Tips
Ask are there any extra costs before ordering Restaurants in Rome are well-known for their top-quality food. But many have hidden costs that English speaking tourists are unaware of. Before sitting down and ordering your food, ask if there is a cover charge or service charge. If you don't, what you might think is a €7 bill could be increased to a €10 bill, so make sure to ask the waiter first of all.

A Day in Rome...
Get up early and join thousands on a crusade to be the first into the Vatican Museum. Your jaw will seldom leave the floor as you walk through its numerous rooms. Take a minute to marvel at the St Peter's Basilica. Afterwards go inside and wonder how exactly were those ceilings painted so high.

Stroll Through the Roman Forum

Mercato di Campo de Fiori

TreviNet Pl@ce Internet Point, Via Arcione 103 This internet café enjoys a particularly good location just seconds from the Trevi Fountain. Along with the obligatory internet access, you can also burn photos on to discs for €4, buy framed pictures of Italy or even watch TV! Open Mon-Fri 11am-11pm, Sat & Sun 4pm-11pm; €1=10 mins, €1.80=25 mins, €2.20=35 mins, €3.50=1 hour. Kokonet, Vicolo d'Orfeo 13 Just 5 minutes from St Peter's Basilica, Kokonet is a cosy and relaxing place to surf the net with fast and reliable speed. As with most internet cafés, you can also use scanners, chat with friends back home and more. Open Mon-Sat 10.30am-9pm, Sunday 5pm-9pm; €1 for 10 min, €2.50 for 30 min, €3.50 per hour. Internet Café, Via dei Marrucini, 12 This aptly named internet café not far from Termini Station has 22 different termials which are located in the bar, the 'Egyptian Hall' and the 'PC Hall'. Access is very speedy thanks to the broadband connection. Open Mon-Fri 9.30am-2am, Sat & Sun 5pm-2.30am; 50c for 10 mins, €1.50 for 30 mins, €3 per hour.

This food market in the heart of the Italian capital in Campo de' Fiori is Rome's most colourful and also most famous. Walk around the fruit stalls to get your mouth watering at the sight of the fresh apples, pears, oranges and other types of fruit. If you plan on cooking back in your hostel you can also buy fresh meat, poultry and fish also. Open from 6.30am-1.30pm Monday-Saturday. Centro Commerciale La Romanina, Via Enrico Ferri Of all Rome's shopping centres, Centro Commerciale La Romanina is the largest. Choose from over 140 shops as well bars, restaurants and more. Buy everything from clothes to shoes to groceries. Open daily from 10am-8.30pm. Mercato Porta Portese, Piazza di Porta Portese Arguably Rome's best known flea market, if you are in the mood to do some bargain hunting when you are in the Italian capital this is where you need to go. Pick up everything from new clothes to second hand clothes to antiques to oriental handicrafts. Open every Sunday from 6am-2pm.

You have to pay to visit the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Circus Maximus. But you can walk through the Roman Forum which was the heart of the city s commercial, political and social goings-on thousands of years ago for free. To imagine what it was like here in the height of ancient Rome you really have to open your mind as it hasn t been preserved as well as the Colosseum, but still shouldn t be missed on any visit to the Italian capital. Catch a sunset from Gianicolo Hill If you make your way to Gianicolo Hill, not only can you enjoy out one of the best vistas of the city, but leave your visit until the evening and you can witness a sunset which will take your breath away. Get into the Vatican Museum for free No, we're not trying to instigate a revolt against admission charges into the Vatican s number one tourist attraction! We're just letting you know that if you happen to be in Rome on the last Sunday of the month you can save yourself €13 as this is when one of Rome's number one attractions is free. Get there early though. Visit Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele This unmissable, imposing, white marble building beside the Roman Forum is fastly becoming one of Rome's best known landmarks. Not liked by many locals as it looks so new beside so many ancient buildings, there is a museum inside which is free of charge.

Grab a quick bite to eat. There are loads of different places to grab a quick snack around the Vatican City. Afterwards get the train to Barberini. From Piazza Barberini follow the signs for the Trevi Fountain. Throw a coin over your shoulder to ensure your return to the Eternal City then rest your feet for a bit. You can't visit Rome without going to the Colosseum. It's about a 25 minute walk from the fountain. Nothing beats setting your eyes on this building for the very first time. Make your way back to Via del Latore and locate a restaurant called Al Picchio. While it is located beside one of the city's biggest tourist attractions, food is reasonably priced. Not far from Al Picchio is Campo de'Fiori, an area with bars at every side. This is one of the most vibrant squares in the city and good for a night out. Finish your day off with a bang and get down to the Testaccio district, the best part of Rome for clubbing.

...Consumer Behavior Essay Introduction The study of consumer behavior has proven to be of added value to marketing executives and middle managers who design marketing strategies. Managers understand and utilize consumer attitude, which includes emotions, self-monitoring and cognition, when attempting to gain a competitive advantage through developing various marketing strategies. This paper will review appropriate theories of consumer attitudes and develop various advertising, merchandising and selling strategies based on these propositions. To counter consumer defense mechanisms, this paper will also discuss competitive war battlefield tactics. Marketing managers match various marketing strategies with the attitudes of typical consumers. However, most of the time, the facts of a product are perilously similar to the facts of its competition. That is when cognition yields to attitude, or how a consumer will feel about a product. One would think attitude gives way to cognition as the price of the product increases. That is not necessarily so. Face-to-face research with automotive shoppers showed selections are made based on emotion. (Edell & Burke, 1987) For example, a young male consumer with $35,000 who has an interest in buying a high-performance car may not be inclined to read literature on every model in that class or take notes on comparable autos. Rather, studies show many consumers are more apt to walk into a showroom, spot a model, peer at the instrument......

When I grow up all I will have to do will say door open to get in my house, everything else will be done for me. now, much to my surprise this day has now arrived. The arrival and utilization of computers in today's world is absolutely unbelievable. Things can be done with computers that could have never been done in the past. we have security systems that don't need keys, cell phones that could go on line, and receptionists are now virtually unknown due to automated voice systems. the question that everyone wants to know is, our we too dependent on computers, and what will happen when they fail us? this is an idea that nobody really likes to discuss.

...GE 101 4-30-2012 Film Review- Crash In Los Angeles, a multi-ethic city, people cannot interact with other people belonging to different ethnic groups. They are paranoid of being victims of racial discrimination or being abused, stereotyping is in everybody’s lifestyle. The movie has pretty much every racial stereotype you can think of - Hispanic housekeeper, thuggish black people, racist white people, Chinese people and illegal immigrants. CRASH is well-acted and well-directed, but also betrayed by its scripts. Haggis has built the plot on the series of often implausible coincidences that look more suitable to misanthropic black comedies than dramas that aspire to tell important truths about real life. In just over 24 hours, Crash brings together people from all walks of life. Two philosophizing black men steal the expensive SUV belonging to the white, L.A. District Attorney and his wife. A similar vehicle belonging to a wealthy black television director and his wife is later pulled over by a racist cop and his partner. Soon many of these people get mixed up with a Latino locksmith a Persian storekeeper and two ethnically diverse, dating police detectives. The multiple plot lines intersect in all sorts of interesting ways. Everyone is linked together, not by a single linear chain but by an intricate web. In the process, we get to see more of who these people really are underneath our assumptions based on their color. Some of these characters redeem themselves while...

...ESTUDIO DE LAS DOCTRINAS DE LA BIBLIA VARA DE DIOS LECCION XVI EL INFIERNO Preparado por William S. H. Piper, D.D. Traducción al español por el Dr. Roy Ackerle LECCION XVI EL INFIERNO INTRODUCCION: No hay otra materia ni doctrina que nos pueda hacer pensar mas seriamente o que nos haga mas penosos, hasta el llorar, que la doctrina del INFIERNO. Si hay un lugar donde los incrédulos, y los que rechazan Cristo van a tener que aguantar el tormento y la angustia por toda la eternidad, esta debe ser la verdad más pavorosa que pudieramos contemplar. Nadie debe enseñar ni predicar esta doctrina livianamente, sino lo más seria y compasivamente posible. Es, pues, el propósito de esta lección de presentar lo mas claro y completo lo que la Biblia enseña acerca de esta verdad. ¡Qué Dios nos dé mentes para aferrar y corazones para comprender su significado! LA IMPORTANCIA DE ESTA LECCION: Mientras que hoy el hecho de que el amor de Dios se está proclamando en forma excesiva, el mensaje de la justicia retributiva, el juicio inevitable, la ira de Dios y el fuego eterno del infierno raras veces se oye aún en los círculos fundamentales. Uno de los propósitos y la importancia de esta lección es mostrar la mucha atención que la Biblia presta a este asunto. Su importancia se impone aún más cuando reconocemos que todo ser humano que muere sin Cristo, pasará la eternidad en el Lago de Fuego. Ser librado del INFIERNO es parte de “la gran salvación” que tenemos en......

...Project Finance, Financiación de Proyectos o Finanproyecto (traducción adaptada del vocablo inglés) es un mecanismo de financiación de inversiones de gran envergadura que se sustenta tanto en la capacidad del proyecto para generar flujos de caja que puedan atender la devolución de los préstamos como en contratos entre diversos participantes que aseguran la rentabilidad del proyecto. Asimismo, son proyectos caracterizados por incluir tecnologías ampliamente maduras. El aumento de grandes inversiones en infraestructuras y la tendencia de los gobiernos a reducir sus niveles de déficit presupuestario, ha sido un hecho fundamental en el desarrollo del finanproyecto. Esta figura permite tanto a la Administración pública como a la empresa privada emprender proyectos cuya inversión en capital es elevada. El finanproyecto es una técnica de uso generalizado en la implantación del sector de telecomunicaciones (telefonía móvil, televisión por cable, etc.). Sin embargo, en la actualidad, ha tomado mucha fuerza en sectores como el eléctrico o del transporte, permitiendo desplazar estas grandes inversiones, históricamente unidas al sector público, hacia el sector privado. Más concretamente, grandes parques fotovoltaicos y eólicos son financiados mediante esta modalidad, pues la propia naturaleza de este tipo de proyectos se adapta plenamente a la filosofía del Project Finance, y la legislación actual permite asegurar una generación de flujos previsible y suficiente que sostenga el......

Cada video lleva una enseñanza o un mensaje el cual nosotros debemos de captar para así lograr una mejor comunicación con nuestro publico. Ya que como estudiantes ascendentes a empresarios debemos tomar en cuenta nuestro desarrollo personal y nuestro desenvolvimiento con otros individuos. La buena comunicación hoy en día es un factor o una virtud muy poderosa para enfrentar cualquier situación o problema que se necesite enfrentar en determinado momento. Saber transmitir cualquier mensaje o idea hacia un publico y que este la capte tu mensaje es esencial para cualquier oratorio . Yo creo que una de las claves para ejercer una buena comunicación es ser capaz de entender a tu publico y no elevarte por encima de ellos. Algo que va de la mano con todo lo que nos rodea hoy en día es el uso de la tecnología, la cual en muchos casos la podemos usar para nuestro beneficios ya que esta nos puede ayudar a reducir nuestro nervios y miedos a la hora de una presentación. Y lo mas importante de todo es captar lo atención del publico, esta se consigue teniendo confianza en uno mismo, proyectando confianza y seguridad y sobre todo teniendo un dominio pleno del tema y manejarlo con la mayor fluidez y naturalidad posible. listado de las técnicas que se utilizan para realizar un buen discurso ...
