There's no way these guys have a license to run a hostel. I scowered this entire 7-floor building top to bottom and couldn't find anything that said Two Ducks or Hostel. We finally called and they met up with us. It's very small. The two guys are not particularly welcoming. There's no place to store things. The room is not bad but the beds are damaged. Somebody stole my I-pod. I don't know if it was the guys at the hostel or guys in another room. But, we left our stuff for the day in the kitchen where they told us and when I came back, it was gone. Luckily on our last day, we kept the key without telling them. Otherwise, it would be impossible to retrieve our stuff because the 2 guys who run the hostel are never there. This place is not that cool. But, I guess it's also dirt cheap.

... there was a bit of a exhibition with bits and bobs that were dropped from spectators and still found today! And graffiti of some of the fighters that people had carved into the stone! It was really interesting and even gave information in how it all worked in terms of the trap doors and elevators. (Not as good as in the film gladiator... But they still pretty good) it was amazing to see and would love to have been ...
... many of them carry big automatic guns...... In this same square is the balcony that Mussolini would address the masses and also from here he built a wide, straight road linking "old Rome" (Colosseum area) with the "new Rome" centre he was developing. This road excavation uncovered the Roman Forum ruins. Then we drove a bit more, past the Spanish Steps (much less impressive than expected), the Castel Sant'Angelo (originally Emperor Hadrian's tomb but walls and towers added to make ...
... is the station church for Ash Wednesday. Hiding in a corner outside is a wooden door that has many wooden panels with carvings on them. The top left panel is a carving of the crucifixion of Christ. This is the earliest surviving/known depiction of Christ on a crucifix. These doors were made in 432.
We made our way back to the residence and got ready for lunch. We packed for our trip to Cinque Terre tomorrow!
Arguably the most spectacular of sights in rome, the colosseum did not disappoint. Right outside the station we saw the massive, old and slightly broken colosseum, both of us were amazed. In the hot 9am sun we waited 45 minutes, constantly being annoyed by people selling skip the line tickets for 4 times the price. Finally when we got to the counter, the woman was rather unhelpful, telling us things that we later found ...
... all of the people who flooded St. Peter's Square. It was really neat during the "peace be with you part" because everyone turned toward the person next to them, shook hands and said "peace" in their own language.
The next day we visited the Colosseum and other popular places like the Fountain of Trevi and the Spanish Steps. Rome was my favorite part of the trip -- it was such a happy place on ...
