our room the first two nights was small but not uncomfortable. everything is very clean, great hot water and water pressure, and a filling breakfast to boot. i would definitely recommend to other budget travelers.

... it's an "old train" and it's having some " electrical" problems". As you can imagine Kevin got a bit mad (big big mad), and was looking to try and fix the problem or open some windows. Each couchette window opens about 2" at the very top of the window, and that's it.

We found the parking garage without any problems - you cannot take your car to Venice for obvious reasons so you have to park and take a water taxi/ferry over to ...
... fact that it was built nearly 2,000 years ago, is truly unbelievable. The engineering that went into is amazing. For certain spectacles the floor could be flooded to allow reenactments of naval battles (only those that the Romans were victorious in of course) and the Colosseum had a primitive roof that could open and close, namely sails that were operated by sailors at the highest point of the stadium.
We had enjoyed a long, final day in Rome, but now it was time to return to ...
