Bella Roma

Having an awesome time in Rome. The Bernini sculptures at the Borghese Gallery were so breathtaking. Loved walking through the park as well. Delicioso pizza at Alice near the Triton statue. The best ever. Also, I managed to tour the three layers of the Colloseum and had a very knowledgeable guide. If you get an opportunity, I highly recommend doing the Underground tour. The tour included all levels - I stood in the peasant "bleecher" seats. fabulous views. Well, got to hang my head on the pillow. It's off to the Appian Way and Aqueduct Park tomorrow. Then in the evening, may throw a coin in the Trevi fountain again. Buona Note. Linda

Mina, I used the tour guide provided by the Colloseum and it was very very good. Information can be found at: http://www.ticketclic.it/Gb/HTML/musei/colosseo.cfm. I didn't end up booking my tour using the site because I was using a Roma Pass. If you plan on using a Roma Pass, then you should call the official ticket booking office at 011 39 06 39967700. Make sure you tell the agent you will be using the Roma Pass. Hope this helps. Linda

Linda, may I ask where you stayed while in Rome? My sister and I are going in May this year, and want to stay in the older section (not near the train station).

Mary, I stayed at a hostel near Termini train station, so probably not what you want. Happy travels!

We stayed at the Albergo Cesari in 2010. It is fairly centrally located in the old town. Only about three blocks from the Pantheon, 4-5 blocks to Trevi Fountain, and about 1/2 mile to the Spanish Steps and the Coliseum. Don't know what the daily rate was since it was included in the tour price.

We have stayed at the Lancelot Hotel in Rome twice and will return again this fall. It is very close to the Colosseum. Great family run hotel. Love it. Barbara

Thanks to those of you who made good suggestions about places to stay in Rome. We have decided on the Baldaccini B&B near the Piazza Navona. It's a splurge, but so close to so many things (everything?). Rome is our last stop in Italy, and we opted to not stay in the Termini area. Now if you have suggestions for good places to eat, I'll take any and all!!
