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!

But on our way back, we stopped to "smell the roses" - actually to eat gelato and drink espresso at a street side cafe.
We ended our day with a glass of wine on the rooftop bar in our hotel accessing wifi and communicating with our kids.

... wet, we realized that we had missed the last train by ten minutes and would have to wait for the night bus. Europe is still pretty chilly at this time of year, and I only packed a light jacket with the naivety that Mediterranean Europe would be slightly warmer. I froze as we waited almost another hour for a bus that would then take an hour and a half to get us home. While on the bus, we were still determined to attend mass in the morning...

... many souvenir street sellers we arrived at the Colosseum. With the scaffolding only on the outside we hired audio guides and walked around the magnificent stadium. Spent several hours there learning about the gladiators and the beast fights. Surprised that along with the unfortunate typical animals fought such as lions and bears, even hippopotamuses were even among the line up. With the sun starting to go down we were ...
