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 …
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.
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 …

... a great view for the kids who had commandeered window seats on either side of the plane. We arrived at our Hotel in Rome at about midday and luckily our room was ready for us; a bit of downtime was just the ticket. I'm also giving the poor camera a rest; it got a huge workout yesterday. Looking forward to exploring Rome tomorrow after a good night's ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
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.
