... from it :(. Off to the next stop which is the Pantheon, we stumbled across a large we think it is a church, either we took a picture. The Pantheon is a large domed church with an oculus at the top (a big hole to Geoff).another beautiful land mark in Rome. Off to the forum, and the colosseum. The forum was really neat to see. You can't believe that the Romans we able to build something so vast and complicated. We didn't realize how ...
... between Termini train station, the Verano graveyard, via Tiburtina, and the Scalo Merci. Apparently, it was developed reasonably quickly during the last two decades of the 19th Century, when building fever hit Rome following Italy's unification. Its growth was reportedly "characterized by great excitement and little planning". So when funding ran out after just a few years, many buildings in the area were left unfinished or had been completed ...

Not sure whether the current chap will use it much given his position on helping the poor and portraying himself as a man of the people. He also certainly ...
... it's way among them. We were able to look around the Castle and there was a restaurant come tea rooms and a gift shop and many out buildings. We sat down to have afternoon tea, when we were rudely interrupted by a thunderstorm, we had to make a run for it. All in all we have had a lovely day, apart from coming back like drowned rats. After drying of, we are sitting in the lounge room relaxing, which is lovely and tonight we are going to have an easy tea, maybe ...

We then visited the Piazza Navona, dipping our hats in the fountains to cool down and getting photos with statues alive and dead before heading home and stopping for dinner near the Colosseum - well earn beer and wine for the adults.
Ciao for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Caesar House Residenze Romane Rome
Charming and Understated Elegance
This was an excellent B&B. Don't be discouraged by the entrance. Upon leaving the elevator at the 2nd floor, you enter an oasis of friendliness, warmth, detail, and charm. The atmosphere is understated elegance, and the owner/staff very accommodating. Complimentary beverages provided by in-room ice box was a nice touch. Best "American" coffee in Rome. As a very "particular" traveler, I will readily recommend Caesar House to anyone spending time in Rome.
Thanks to Guila, Simona, Youni, and Michelle my daughter and I enjoyed our stay in Rome tremendously. The restaurants, nightlife, and tour scene recommended were always a pleasure. The best part of staying there was we were made to feel like a member of the family visiting Rome. My daughter particularly enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in bed each morning. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very large, clean, quiet, elegant, and with good air conditioning. Access to all was within comfortable walking distance.
My wife and I celebrated our tenth anniversary with a trip visiting several cities in Italy, in June, 2004. The three nights we stayed at this hotel were a major highlight of our entire trip. It is rather small, 6 rooms, and so feels a bit more like a very nice bed and breakfast in the US. Although it is right on a fairly busy street, we never heard any outside noise.
Charm, Location, Warmth, Hospitality!
You cannot ask for a better location in Rome to see the sights. Giulia, Simona, & Youni offered warm, personal service, and were very welcoming to us. (Youni made sure that our 7-year-old daughter had chocolates every night before bedtime!) Our room was spacious, clean, and well-decorated, and we enjoyed having our continental breakfast delivered to our room each morning. If you want to be treated as a special guest, stay at Caesar House!
Comfort and Care
I can't say enough about Caesar House. Similar to a luxury bed and breakfast, it's like having all the comforts of home and more. Large comfortable bed and pillows, beautifully decorated, plenty of room to spread out, quiet, tasty breakfast in bed if you want, and a very kind and personal concierge, making sure you have everything you need. Very close to the ancient sites, you can walk just about everywhere from the residence. I highly recommend this site to those who want to be treated like a valued guest and not just another tourist!
Comfortable, easy, and helpful
This small hotel/residence is charming and filled with integrity and best wishes for its guests. Run with great care by two sisters, each room is different, but the two I saw were both furnished well and comfortable, with great beds and lots of space (at least by Euro standards). What sets this place apart is the staff- they are completely at your disposal to help book side trips, suggest great places to eat, or fix anything that may be a problem. I needed an adapter for my computer, and they immediately went to a nearby store and bought one! It is located at the end of Via Cavour, just two blocks from the Coliseum and metro stops.
My husband and I traveled to Rome in March and stayed for four nights at the Caesar House Residenze Romane. This is a exceptionally wonderful hotel---one of those rare places that one remembers fondly for years to come. Our experience started before we ever landed in Rome. The owner was most helpful in answering all of our questions by e-mail and arranged to have a car pick us up at the airport. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and shown our beautiful room. It was quiet and spacious, decorated in an attractive modern style. The hotel is on the second floor of an ancient palazzo, minutes from the Forum and within walking distance of most major attractions. There are only 6 rooms so each guest is treated with the utmost care and attention. A delicious breakfast is served each morning in your room. The friendly staff is eager to help with dinner reservations, tours or sight-seeing suggestions. When you leave, you feel as if you are leaving friends. This is a magical little hotel that enhanced our trip immeasurably.
I traveled with my husband and two daughters to Rome for a 'dream vacation', and the Caesar House helped make the dream a reality.
For travelers looking for all the best amenities and for the right price in Rome, we would highly recommend the Caeser House. Our experience started at the airport, where we were met at the gate by a private driver in a luxury car for a modest (by Rome standards) cost.
