... awning supported by wooden bollards was rolled out via ropes connected to an inner metal circle. We spent several hours marvelling the sight, before crossing the road for a spectacular two course lunch with fantastic views of the building. After a giant chocolate desert, we were spent, and decided it was about time to swim back to our apartment. A well spent day, the colosseum gets the thumbs up! Tomorrow, more ruins - the Roman Forum and Palatine, followed by the ...
Today it was back to the Vatican, this time to see Pope Francis pray the Angelus (a devotional prayer) and give a blessing. For those interested, there are several ways for the layperson to see the Pope: at a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, during his Wednesday Audience, or on Sundays as he prays the Angelus. The Vatican website lists the Pope's public schedule and also has links for requesting advance tickets (heavy emphasis on ...
... boozy digestif to start composting the contents of our groaning tummies. Of course, we'd eaten far more than one measly limoncello could handle on its own so we ordered another round to help it along. Just when we thought we'd done our best, our increasingly charming waiter bought us out another round of limoncello, compliments of the house!
Luckily we were within stumbling distance from home. We left the restaurant to find the neighbourhood ...
... they volunteered because they were prisoners sentenced to life in prison or to be executed, so took their chances in the ring. The weaker gladiators were often sacrificed to the lions etc. as pure entertainment for the crowd; the arena could seat 60,000 people. The animals were kept across the way from the arena [which means blood in Latin] there were elephants, giraffes, lions, and tigers. Some of the gladiators ...
... wet, I finally found my direction and headed for the train station. I bought my ticket to La Spezia Centrale, from which I will transfer and head to Cinque Terre. I haven't had too many opportunities to get on the web because there has been no free wifi. When I arrive I'll look for a hotel/hostel to stay in since I should be arriving around 4:30 pm. It's about 1:30 am now, I'm going to catch up on some sleep. Maybe I'll have Internet in Cinque Terre. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fellini Bed & Breakfast Rome
Travelling in February to Rome is definitely off season, and my daughter and myself expected off season rates when it came to places to stay. We picked this B & B because of its location to the metro and because it was affordable. Although there was a mixup about our arrival time in Rome, the host was very amicable. I would have appreciated a sign outside the apartment that said "ring the bell" or "Fellini Bed and Breakfast" - our instructions just said go to the 5th floor of the building. There's a very small elevator in the building which lets you out on a landing with 2 apartment front doors for you to choose from. I do not know how many rooms are available in the main, 5th floor, apartment - at least two, that I know of. Our room was actually one flight up with its own rooftop garden, kitchen, two double beds and new bathroom, still being re-modeled. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was always served on the 5th floor (one flight down) but not until 8:30 a.m. and that was too late for us! We did meet some fellow travelers at breakfast and were able to compare notes. The rooms are located about 10 minutes from the Trevi Fountain. Our host spoke English, even giving us his cell phone number to get in touch with him since no one lives on the premises. As two women travelling by ourselves, we felt very safe at this residential apartment building.
Was very worried on staying here as i had read many negative reviews, but was by far better than some of the reviews given. The helper anna was very pleasant. The room was spotless and the location was great 5 minute walk to both spanish steps and trevi fountain. Did not have any breakfast unfortunatly as there was so many nice cafes we wanted to try. But the overall stay was fantastic and i felt we where made very welcome and the stay was well worth the money. My saying is you get what you pay for theses reviews that have been given where harsh as they knew it was'nt the hilton. But the decor was very modern and the stay was enjoyable and i would love to return again.
I stayed here last February, I had some reservations after reading some negative reviews on some websites but I had already changed from another bed and breakfast. I feel some of the critisism of Fellini is unfair. The only person we met was the maid Anna (or Ala?), who I found very friendly and helpful. I do speak some italian and this made things a lot easier. I don't think she speaks much english so maybe that is why the reviewer above felt that she was being rude. The location is perfect, the whole B & B is spotless. Regarding the breakfast, being Irish I would have prefered a more substantial one, but you have to remember Italians don't really eat a big breakfast, so I think the old adage "When in Rome" applies here. When you travel you can't expect things to be the same as back home.
The good and bad
Fellini's is a little B&B, in a great location in Rome. It has AC, is clean and the beds are comfortable (the pillows are like rocks). The proprieter is quite friendly but unfortunately, we had the most contact with his helper, Anna, who is very rude, unfriendly and unpleasant. Breakfast is a loose term for the meager fare served in the morning though the coffee is excellent. The only other problem we had is JeanPierre ordered a car to pick us up at the airport and we got overcharged by quite a lot. He orders many cars for his customers, in fact offers this as a service on his website, and I would think he'd be able to choose honest drivers.
