Travel Blogs from Rome
It was HOT today, and we were wilting when we had to stand around in the sun. But our guide, an archeologist with Through Eternity, was very good at finding us little patches of shade whenever we stopped to learn about something.
It was amazing to see structures from thousands of years ago, and to learn a little about what life was like.
Bon giorno, Aaron here.
Busy (and very late) day today so let's get to it...
We started out by going to the National Museum as the doors were opening. We were one of the first ten or so folks let in. It is wonderful to roam around galleries that contain priceless works of art and have the room to ourselves. Cassie was especially …
Bon giorno, Aaron here.
Cassie and I jumped on the Rome subway system this morning and headed over to Vatican City. For those of you living under a rock, the Vatican is the home of the Catholic religion, the Pope, and (supposedly) the remains of the disciple Peter. Even some previous Popes are not certain of the last claim but it is clear …
Buon giorno, Aaron here.
A two hour train ride swept us away from Florence and into the grand city of Rome. If anything, it is even hotter here, but that did not stop us from hitting the ground running.
The four-room B&B we are staying at is near the Colosseum and an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The couple that run …
... collect around 3000 euro from the fountain floor everyday and use the money for charity. With our energy waning we made a quick stop off at the Spanish Steps, which when compared with what we had seen today across Rome, were not as impressive as we had heard. Escaping the heat, we jumped back on the tube which returned us back to our hotel for a much needed rest from the heat. Later that night we headed for dinner near the Colosseum, some 15 minute walk from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nicolas Inn Rome
Overall the Nicolas Inn is a fantastic value at almost any price. At the winter-time rates my girlfriend and I paid of 90 euros/night, it was an absolute steal.
Home away from home
I have now stayed at the Nicolas Inn twice, three times if you count the fact that my last stay was interrupted by a week-long sojourn in Sicily. François and Melissa have pampered me like a favorite uncle. They have given helpful sightseeing hints and have provided me with every comfort. Much as I would like to think they accord me special treatment, I have observed that they accord just as much friendly attention to every guest.
The location is ideal, within walking distance of the main train station and only a few blocks from the Colosseum and the Vittoriano. There are metro and bus stops nearby, and several good eateries.
My wife and I visited Rome with our University daughter and stayed at the Nicolas Inn for five nights. None of us had been to Rome, and we were a bit apprehensive. Everything in the other positive reviews is totally true. We had read them prior to our visit. Nicolas Inn was the greatest. The rooms are on the small side, but very adequate. We stayed in the Inn over New Year's 2004. No problem with noise-- of course we were out in the streets till after midnight, but no problem any night with noise.
Accomodations were great, very clean, very comfortable. Loved teh location - a few blocks from the Roman Forum etc. Hosts were very helpful, booked reservations for us and provided excellent advice on restaurants. Even had breakfast in our room the night before ealry departures. Will stay there again when we return.
Really nice time!!!
This place was a great place to stay..
We got served breakfast in bed!!!...
The location was excellent too...
Francois & Melissa were so helpful with recommendations also..
Fantastic stay in Rome!
The Nicholas Inn made our trip in Rome completely stress-free. Quiet, low-key, and detail-oriented, it is an enchanting oasis that serves as a treat both at the begining and end of a long day in this exhausting city. Melissa and Francois really know how to make their guests feel welcome and at home. We will definitely return in the future.
A must stay if in Rome
Great place. Great people. Great location. Wouldn't chage a thing!
It's the hosts that make this place so great. When we arrived they went over a map with us and pointed out the main stuff to see, how to get there, the best days to go, opening hours. Their restaurant recommendations are great. There are several good places to eat right by the B&B but they also suggested places throughout the city.
We spent two nights early Oct. 2004 - Great location walking distance to all the major cites. The room was quite, newly refurnished, clean with modern bathroom! The bed was very comfortable. we paid 120E which included a nice pastery basket, fruit & yorgurt, Melissa made great coffee and even gave second!!! What a nice treat. Melissa also made us museum reservations - she was extremely helpful.
We definitley recommend this B & B and would stay their again!!
Loved the Nicolas Inn in Rome
We spent 3 lovely nights at the Nicolas Inn in Rome this September. It is a small B & B with very nice rooms, great bathrooms, a perfect location and friendly and helpful owners. Located at 295 Via Cavour close to the forum and the coliseum, it is perfectly located to be in walking distance of sights, restaurants and transportation. It is also next to a wonderful small Italian market. The hostess, Melissa, is American and extremely nice and helpful. If you want a nice place to stay at a reasonable price, you can't do better than this B & B. Here is the contact information: Via Cavour, 295; Scala A, Int. 1;Roma, Italia 00184
