Caius Cestius, a rich praetor wanted his body to be buried within a Pyramid. Unfortunately he died in 12 BC before the completion of the pyramid. The pyramid ...

Don't sit on Vatican floors

... as they make allowance for my own when they (so very rarely) occur. Anyways, the van was obviously a Rome virgin and needed to be deflowered. Look around and most cars have badges of honour scraped across the side - evidence of creatively getting in and out of the precious parking real estate.

We stayed in Trastavere, a colorful neighbourhood just across the Tiber, once home to the working class, now gentrified over the years with ...

    Though we had to go up 4 floors with our bags, once we arrived they gave us a key for the elevator, which was amazing!! =) The sheets are clean and the matresses too. The shower is great, nice warm water and the room is heated. Very recommendable, though the blankets should be washed.
