birthday in the Vatican,
Arriving at a decent hour we checked in to our sweet B&B near Termini, and headed straight to the Colosseum. two hours of searching for a working atm later we were ready to actually go into the Colosseum, but where's the entrance you say. Lets check the map, 1 1/2hrs later search for Dan and him me, we met in the …
... Vatican was not complete without seeing the Pope!
Maybe it was just me, and maybe it was just the day I was there, but I will be returning to Rome, but in the summer time, no matter how many tourists are around.
When in Rome
Eat: pizza, pasta, wine, antipasto, tiramisu, espresso

... so we could ask for directions to the metro. Coffee at the counter is only one euro where if you sat down it can cost several euro. We stood at the counter with our coffee and I had latte macchiato which was so good. The coffee in Italy is so good I don’t feel like I need to add sugar, and can enjoy coffee the way it was intended.
After careful instructions which was only actually around the corner down the road, we caught a bus to the Colosseum. We couldn’t ...
... than the roof of St Peters.
After the Vatican we travelled on to Trevi Fontana which was nice, lots of people around and a nice area with little shops and some nice restaraunts.
Both pretty buggered after another long day, still waking up at around 0200hrs every morning and struggling to get back to sleep. I'm sure by the time I get a proper sleep we will be leaving Italy and will have to readjust time zones again!
... instead only to find that it had closed early! Isobel came with us to visit the Panthéon (open this time) while the others headed home.
Next morning we were at the Colosseum early and beat the queues and the crowds to be all done by about 11am. Even seeing the Colosseum a second was awe-inspiring. The sheer size and scale of it is hard to believe. While the arenas in Arles and Nîmes may have been better preserved (or restored) they were nowhere near the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Maryelen Rome
Loredana runs a very clean and efficient BnB. Some aspects are a bit minimal such as the very small bathroom in our room and there being no lounge area. While she is a very gracious host, breakfast is limited to corn flakes or plastic wrapped croissants with your cafe.
Loved the Maryellen B&B
My husband & I enjoyed our stay at the Maryellen. The room was nice, modern, & very clean, while in keeping with the charm of a Roman neighborhood. Although the street is a bit littered (as is the majority of old Rome)it was a good location for public transport.,& walking distance to many sights.It was a pleasure to know the very kind & helpful innkeepers and we felt like one of the family.
I can't begin to tell you all the things I loved about this place. Loredana was by far the highlight! From the moment I booked the room, she was super helpful & friendly, and that continued throughout our stay.
This family B & B is in a very quiet street a short walk from the terminal. You will be greeted by Loredana your host, she will make you feel very welcome and will offer you good advice on where to go and how best to get there. she directed us to the supermarket which is the cheapest place for food and presents such as local wine and confectionery.these goodies are much cheaper than anywere in the city and the airport.
A nice b&b in a very convenient location..near the termini
Loredana is friendly and helpful
Rooms are good bathrooms are small but clean
The only negative is the air conditioning which they keep at a standard temp and we felt warm in the room [ on venere they advertise individually controlled a/c which is not the case] it was very hot in june and better a/c would have helped a lot
Loredanas husband very helpful..he helped us find the car park and took us there
Can recommend if ure not bothered about the A/C
We are just back from a trip to Rome and Florence. MaryElen B&B was the first hotel we stayed in. We booked through venere.com. It is very close to the Termini (under a 5 minute walk, with suitcases), and Loredana had emailed great directions to us before we left the US. It's proximity to the Termini station meant we didn't have to use taxis at all during our stay in Rome -- there is a Metro stop at the Termini (one Euro per trip), as well as the airport express (9.50 Euros one way), and trains all around Italy. The food wasn't bad at the Termini cafe either! I was a little concerned about the Termini area, but we felt quite safe at all times of the day and night when walking around. There are three locked doors to enter before you reach your room too. The room fridge was great, and there is a supermarket very close by. Loredana gave us a map and showed us the major sites when we arrived. Breakfast was "euro-style": rolls, cake, corn flakes, toast, juice and fantastic coffee. Big room, small bathroom. Our courtyard facing room was lovely. Very hospitable and helpful folks. Compared to our other accomodations, good to average value for money.
This spotlessly clean B&B and has a great location close to the Termini train station, but it is quiet. Also on that block among other businesses are a laundry/Internet combination, a fine and affordable Indian restaurant and a place with a Pizza Rustica sign, which has wonderful barbecued chicken and tasty meat pies. Around a corner and toward the Termini is a large enough supermarket with a good selection of cheese, sandwich meats and wine.
