... so many important building such as the curia, roman senate, and the temple of julius ceasar. The Curia was the home to the Roman Senate and apparently the tenets of Roman law were first debated here. There was also an oratory platform in front of the curia. There was also the Temple of Saturn were the celebrations of Christmas originally came from. At this point it started pouring but we still trudged through. I have now been without an umbrella for 4 months and have learned that ...
... not as well known piazzas. I will be studying piazza mattei which is a really nice space most famous for the Turtle Fountain which is a really interesting fountain located in the center of this small piazza. The plan for this weekend is to get my permesso di soggiorno completed and turned in, and work on my architecture project tomorrow. Saturday Torsten and I, and potentially a couple others will be attending the Roma ...
... into the Colosseum was amazing. When we got to our first set of stairs, everyone was complaining, I ran up them with the biggest smile on my face. (I don't know why, but I really like stairs). Walking out into the sunshine and looking at the inside of the Colosseum was brilliant. Even though it was just a shell of it's former self, it wasn't hard to imagine what it would be like it it was fully built. From he top ...
... ever so hot. Also, on the second day we used the bus we ended up having to stand downstairs as all the seats were taken. I would not have been impressed if that was the first time I viewed the city as you really see so much more from the top deck.
Tip 4 - Have an ice cream at the Trevi Fountain
We were on the bus and followed the route with the map so when we came to a stop near the Trevi Fountain we thought it best to get off and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Daphne Inn Trevi Rome
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Daphne B&B.
My three sisters, myself and my mother stayed at Daphne B&B in Rome for three night in September. I can honestly say that it was unanimously the best accomadation we stayed in during our trip to Europe. From the very minute we arrived we were spoiled by the wonderful personal service we got from Heather at Daphne B&B. She walked us to Spanish Steps stopping to take pictures of all of us on the steps and then proceeded to take us to the nearby American Express to exchange money and then left us at a wonderful pizzaria she recommended for lunch. Upon our return she then sat down with us and familiarized us with local maps and lots of advice on how to get around in Rome. We were supplied with cell phones to stay in contact with not only each other but also with Alessandro & Elyssa (owners) and Heather in case we had any problems, needed information, or reservations etc during our stay. We did on occasion contact them for tour information and Alassandro kindly made wonderful dinner reservations as well as walking us personally to the taxi, loading us in and giving directions to the driver as non of us spoke Italian. Daphne is located in a great section of Rome, close to Trevi Fountain, and easy access to subway and taxi services. Our bus tour of Rome picked us up right at Daphne and dropped us after. How much more convenient is that??? The B&B itself was extremely clean with comfortable beds, lovely white comforters and a beautiful sitting room where we relaxed comfortably after the long days of site seeing. I would highly recommend Daphne B&B to anyone traveling to Rome. On a scale of 1-10 it is definately a 10 for a B&B.
Fantastic stay in Rome
We stayed at the Hotel Daphne last weekend (9th-13th October 2003) & would recommend it to anyone. OK, it's not a five star hotel, but it doesn't claim to be. It's a small, family-run B&B, it's clean, has spacious bedrooms with air-conditioning (well ours was) & is all you could ask for, right in the centre of Rome. What sets it apart from other B&Bs is the service you receive. The staff willingly give up their time to advise you on what to see, how to avoid the crowds, where to find restaurants serving real Italian food & even where to buy the best grappa. They will gladly make reservations for restaurants & galleries & host a wine & cheese tasting session once a week. Hopefully we will return to Rome one day & would not consider staying anywhere else.
I have stayed at the Daphne 2 times this year and I am looking forward to returning to Rome soon and staying at the Daphne. The service was incredible and very friendly. The rooms at the main hotel building were quiet, clean and decorated beautifully. The location is wonderful with 1 euro pizza right next door that is gourmet quality. We did once stay for 2 nights at the alternative location which is a short walk away.
I don't think some of the reviewers stayed at the same Daphne B&B where we stayed! The B&B was just lovely! The decor was modern, but simple.
I liked it (Stayed 6-2003)
I found the Daphne B&B to be clean and safe, and the owners were extremely nice and easy to deal with. They really went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed Rome - he sat with us for 45 minutes to give us a Rome sight-seeing itinerary. They speak excellent English (One of the co-owners is American), and give excellent restaurant recommendations.
They even gave us a cell phone to use while we were in the city! This was very convenient - calls to the US were only $.40 a minute. I would definitely stay here again.
Daphne is OK and unlike the other reviews posted here we weren't moved to another room. My problem is with the breakfast.
No Security at Daphne
We stayed at Daphne last month for 4 nights. My initial impression was positive. After 2 nights we came back to find the owner telling us she moved us to another room. We weren't exactly thrilled at having our things moved by someone else, plus, the room they moved us to was significantly smaller and right next to the bathroom that all the rooms shared. Then she told us we didn't need new room keys because the keys were the same for the 2 rooms. NICE SECURITY!We didn't like the idea of the person in another room having access to my room. Plus, how did she know we wouldn't go in our original room?! If you want security Daphne is not the place to stay.
Im posting to let everyone know about my stay Daphne B&B in Rome. I stayed there with a friend of mine and the customer service was the worst thing I have ever experienced. We arrived at the train station in Rome & one of the men selling rooms offered his place, Daphne Bed & Breakfast private bath for $80 a night right in the center of the city. We arrived at Daphne & the place was very nice and clean. We paid for our three nights upfront, as they requested, and had a good nights sleep. The next morning we left the room to go sightseeing. We returned to find our bags packed and the owner waiting for us. He told us they had an overbooking & he had to find us another place. What I found amazing is that he didnt feel he did anything wrong. They packed our bags and we werent allowed back in the room. Since we were two men traveling, they couldnt tell what belonged to whom so we spent over an hour sorting out articles from our bags. Everything was just jammed in the bags, no folding, no care. Not to mention the fact we were worried that something might be lost. Plus, Daphne refused to give us our money back for the 2 nights we didnt stay. He told us he already gave the money to other bed & breakfast owner. We stood there arguing with the owner for over a half hour. The owner of Daphne felt that since he found us another place to stay we should not be bothered. Outrageous! We later realized Daphne had simply found someone else to pay more money than we did for the room. After leaving Daphne we called the owners and again we argued. They finally offered to give us $40 back. Can you imagine coming back to your hotel room & finding someone had gone through all of your things? Your bags were packed by you did not even know? Is it too much to assume that once you pay for a hotel room that you are entitled to use the room?! I have stayed in hostels and was never treated that way we were at Daphne. I will be returning to Rome but I will never stay at Daphne ever again. Be careful t take your money but if they can get more money from someone else you will be on the curb.
