Our awesome stay started with professional and friendly communication via email - booking from New Zealand several months before visiting Rome. Easy instructions were given for arrival and our host met us at the apartment and gave us a super comprehensive run down on things to do etc. Service is impeccable. Room was comfortable, fresh and clean. Lovely to have a complimentary bottle of wine for our 5 night stay and little touches like lollies in our room. Fridge for self serve breakfasts, coffee machines, fruit to take for the day - you name it - its supplied. Location is excellent with a easy 5 minute walk to subway and easy 10 minute walk to Vatican. Plenty of dining and shopping options and area nice and safe. What more to say? Nothing except book without hesitation and we would go back any day - if we could!

Maps in hand we walked to the bridge of Angels, skirting the Vatican which is only round the …
... as it is being repaired. Time for shopping, and lunch. Wandering the streets of Roma, heading towards Piazza Navona, window shopping, people watching, sunshine, what a great way to spend the day. I stop for lunch at a cafe in the Piazza- bruschetta and a cup of tea. Bit surprised when I get the bill- the both cost 6 Euro. Reasonable price for the bruschetta but a very expensive cup of tea! Then after further ...
... bad but didn't go in to buy.. Did buy a scarf from a street vendor after much haggling. Bruno was proud of me, but I'm sure he still diddled me! Returned and had lunch at a small trattoria near hotel - very pleasant and good food. Found the hotel we stay in when we come back -just around the corner, so will probably eat there again. Tonight we had our welcome dinner in a ...
... took an interest and cleaned it up and reopened it to the public. Called the Sphinx of Caelian because we don't really know why it's round-maybe to imitate the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Associated with Hungarians. Features frescos that depict the violence of martyrdom.
Our last stop was San Giovanni e Paolo—built over the house of two high members of the Imperial ...
... talked the whole time telling us so many stories. He was excellent. Finally we arrived back at the Colosseum. The main reason I booked this tour is that we were allowed to go down into the lower levels,where the gladiators were, the lower level has only been open to the public for three years and only by guided tour. We were the first tour group to enter, and the Colosseum stood quiet and empty. It was quite eerie. When we went down into the lower level he pointed ...
