... rule and the Romans know that the roads were here long before cars and will be here long after they have broken the bonds of gravity.
There are so many bikes here too! Yes they are mainly scooters, but it is a very mobile population. makes sense with so much movement to do it on a little bike rather than a big old car, especially when the streets barely fit a smart car down them (Of which there are many, along with the Fiats, VW Golf's, Nissan ...
... successful. We of course threw coins into the fountain with hopes of returning again, and made a few wishes. This all obviously led to shopping for postcards and we all got Roma T-shirts for the soccer game we are going to!
Sunday morning we went to the Pope's Angelus, which is when he blesses the things you bring. Seeing Pope Francis in front of the carpet and hearing his voice was the craziest ...
... flowing fountains, ogled and pontificated at Obelisks, sat on the Spanish Steps, wished for our eventual return at the Trevi Fountain, caught the beginning of mass at the Chiesa Santa Teresa, sought out Bernini sculptures, and wrapped up with an apertivo at Pompi, offering the best in deserts.
As if that weren't enough, we then carried on ...
... over at near St Peter's and we had some lunch before heading into the square for a look. It really is massive, with hundreds of people lined up to get inside. I didn't like the Basilica last time I was here as it is way too opulent and has little religious feeling to it. It is the excesses of the Catholic church gone mad.
We headed off through the shops on that side of the river, found Ken a pair of shoes and headed home for a little rest.
... the Roman sculptures were quite primitive compared to the Renaissance masterpieces thrown throughout Italy and Europe. Probably cos I only saw the bad/weathered ones but the ones in the museum really were something. Take a walk around them! The detail is quite something. There were the mosaics as well! Admire from afar, then walk closer and you realise it’s all tiny little tiles…I just find that amazing and apparently these covered entire floors. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Luxury Manfredi Apartments Rome
The room and service very good, excellent and we would of liked in the room a kettle for the morning coffe or tea, but never mind it was very good to stay here. I would come back in the near future, once again thank you.
A good choice
This is the first time we booked a hotel over the Internet and based our choice on the reviews on this site. We were delighted to find that our experiences matched the reviews already posted. The hotel is small and the service was balanced just right - personal and friendly without being intrusive. The view is fabulous and the rooms very pleasant. The location was great as there is a choice of restaurants, buses and a metro station within two minutes of the hotel. A great holiday we remember with considerable pleasure.
Loved this hotel
We stayed this hotel with our two children for 3 nights during half term holiday.
What a lovely hotel. It is not too big, very cosy.
Fantastic view of Colosseo from every parts of our suite room.
This is the kind of hotel we would always like to stay.
There are several nice restaurants nearby.
Thank you for giving us a lovely time.
We stayed in Rome for ten days, splitting our time between the Gladiatori and a much higher priced new "Modern" hotel. The Gladiatori way exceeded our expectations. The staff was very polite and cordial, and the roof top dining, with an uninterupted view of the Colloseum, was nothing short of amazing. If you are looking for romantic getaway, you can't find much better than this.
We stayed at the Hotel Gladiatori this summer for 3 nights, and from the minute we stepped in, the service was unbelieveable. They knew our names when our car pulled up to the window. The head guy, I believe his name was Bruno, is extremely friendly and will help you in any which way. It was a great experience.
Jus returned from a 4 night stay at the Gladiatori over Thanksgiving. The place is great and the location overlooking the Coloseum is incredible. The hotel was spotless and the upstairs dining/bar/deck area was something you have to see to believe. However, the greatest asset of the hotel is the MAN - Bruno - what a great guy!!! We had a few problems with some of the travelers in our group and he was the best in the way he handled everything. He is a standout Roman and we will not easily forget him - and that comes from someone who has traveled to Rome over 30 times. Thanks for being so accommodating.
It was great!
The view is just so fantastic! We loved the way the rooms were arranged, the beds were alwalys very clean and comfortable and the marble floors are so amazing! The service was always very kind and the staff members was wonderful and we really felt as though they really cared. Excellent hotel!
We stayed at the Gladiatori in early October,04. It was a great hotel with a beautiful view. The roof top garden was a great place for breakfast and dinner. The rooms were clean and very nice. We would stay here again without question.
We stayed three nights at the Hotel Gladiatori in Rome, Italy in early October. The hotel has been updated in the past year or so. The rooms are large and clean. The roof top garden/dining room is beautiful. The view across to the Colosseum in beautiful. We would stay here again and recommend it.
Just got back from 3 days in Rome and stayed at the Gladiatori. There is nothing between this property and the Colosseum except ruins in the process of being excavated. How stunning it was to wake up every morning to this view! The breakfast rooftop terrace is amazing with a not-bad selection of continental fare, including some meats and cheeses. The capuccino was the best I had in Rome. Bruno and Flavio will assist guests with any arrangements they can. The property is small, but make no mistake, is big on style and quality. From the marble floors (in the rooms too), the well-appointed bathroom and bedroom to the turn-down service, terry robe and slippers, ... I could go on. I found the double superior room to be large by Italian standards and very nice. Truly a four-star property by any standard.
