Up at 5:30am to wait in the queue for the Vatican. Caught the metro followed by a 15 minute walk to line up with thousands of others for the 9am opening. We actually got quite close to the front but still had to wait for 2 hours in zero degrees! Still better than going later when the queues reputedly are 4-5 hours wait.
It was certainly …
Had a quick breakfast in the hotel and caught the Metro to the Colosseum area, which was Shareen's 'must-do' in Rome.
We read that the queues are shorter at the Forum entrance, so we headed there first. Still stood in a queue for around 2 hours.
Finally got access and wandered around the Forum and Palentine Hill areas.
Woke to a beautiful sunny day, warm and blue skys!!
Walked to the Leaning Tower and took some great photos. Walked around the site for a few hours and got quite hot - had to take off our jackets for the first time !
Decided to pay the exorbitant fee (15 euro each) to climb the tower which was worthwhile to experience the crazy …
... an old house owned by the Borghese family, and some of the collections were even owned by Napolean's brother (now don't quote me on any of this, a lot of the information plaques were in Italian and I had to ask a few guards to translate them for me and they spoke in broken English so I am not sure I understood them correctly hahaha). Unfortunately I could not take pictures in the Museum so the pics I do have are from google. Besides those two sculptures I also ...

Finally I was too hot to even think of heading anywhere further and needed a internet connection to see about ferry services to Croatia!! I arrived at one hotel and decided to treat myself to a night in Rome, however I certainly was not paying the asking price of 280 Euros for a single room and so I had to go elsewhere!!
Finally I ended up in what I can only make out to ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWRH Termini Rome
This 'hotel' is unclean, unwelcoming, and very poor value for money.
The positives - it is a good sized room in a good location.
The negatives - well - where to start - like many hotels in the area it is difficult to find. There is no staff on duty, you must pre arrange your arrival, This means if there any problems there is no one around to help. We booked through a web site promising breakfast - there was no breakfast. The room has a strange idea about putting on the heating in the day when it is not required then switching it off in the evening and morning when needed. The lighting is trendy, but so dim, that we could not read a book. BUT this was the clincher - they have a 'cleaner' come through every day - what a joke. All the kitchen equipment is filthy. The glasses had grime, and his idea of making up the room was to hang your dirty towels back up to use again.
This is not a hotel. It is a back=packers style accommodation done up with some trendy furnishings so they can charge hotel prices. Much better accommodation to be found in central Rome.
