... is quite manageable. It is taking me a while to work out exactly which type of coffee to order to get the one I prefer and apparently it varies throughout Italy. We then headed to Nemi, another small village. It was a lovely scenic drive through this area and Nemi is also located on the rim of a volcanic lake (Lago Di Nemi). Nemi is famous for its strawberries and they had a strawberry festival on today with ...
Our hostess suggested we visit the neighborhood of Trastevere so we caught the bus over to check it out. Without knowing a specific restaurant or area we just looked at some menus and went from there. During our trip research we came across some foods to try in Rome. One of them was artichokes so we asked if the restaurant had any and our decision was made.
The language barrier was a little tricky but we found out they boiled ...
... day. We then went on a wild goose chase to find the prison that St. Peter and Paul were held captive in. We literally spent all day trying to find this place, thinking it is going to be awesome to see. Let's just say if you have the opportunity to go, don't even waste your time. It was the biggest joke of my life and we all literally burst out laughing in the middle of it. All I got out of it was that the rocks talked and changed colors! We then bought our train tickets and head back ...
... on faraway Faraglioni rocks of Capri. From here, you can relish the flavours of the Amalfi Coast. We will amaze you with our service, our commitment and the authenticity of our food. That was all true the food and the views were wonderful and we had a really good, had a lovely evening. When we said good night to friends, the last bus had gone so we had to walk home again for the second time that day. So I say good ...
... get to the other night. This time our sense of direction doesn't let us down and we settle in for a great supper of appetizers, pasta, and salad. After our meal we revisit the area surrounding the Roman Forum, near the Victor Emmanuel Monument. Dusk is beginning to fall and the views of Rome are magical at this time of day. To cap off the evening we return to Giolitti's for our daily gelato fix. The perfect end to a very good day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fellini Rome
Rome on a budget
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.
Great Location, Spotless!
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.
