Yet more updates to Rome the Second Time: Don't Leave Home Without It

What's left of the Tiber boat service; "Non Attivo" - Not active.
They could at least take down these signs.
The boats on the Tevere (Tiber) are completely defunct; don't try to book one.  We discouraged visitors from Rome from doing these cruises, and now we can somewhat happily report you can't even try.

Kino's new Bistrot

Grauco, a very particular film club in the Pigneto area of Rome, closed in 2010 after 30 years of operation.  But we're happy to report, like a phoenix from the ashes, Kino a "cineclub" sponsored by Italian film lovers, directors, and the like, has opened in its place. 

These are two of the "Updates" that are in the now 18-page Updates to Rome the Second Time.  We remind our loyal readers that you can access these Updates through the link to the right of the blog, but also via this link:  Readers of an eBook version can click directly on "Update" anywhere it appears in the eBook.  For the paperback readers, we strongly recommend you download or printout the Updates before you start on any of the itineraries.

Buon visite!  Dianne
