... I've ever seen anything so grandiose before. It was truly overwhelming. It did make me a little sad to think that about how this great hall came to be, back in the days when the church was a powerful and vastly corrupt institution. When the positions of cardinals and popes were purchased by wealthy families rather than earned by the self sacrifice of individuals. This is where all that money went. Still amazing to see though

... 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 ...
... bus system here. Rome is big. Before we left, we watched a travel show by Samantha Brown. Her first comment on the show was, "Rome is big." I didn't really believe her, because everyone says how walkable Rome can be. I want to meet the person who has happily walked around Rome all day. I suppose, technically, it is walkable. Sadly, we didn't have the ability to rent a private car for the day, like Samantha Brown. Next time we come ...
... accommodation was a bit out of the city but was gorgeous. My room had a gorgeous view looking out over the Tuscan countryside. We had dinner outdoors with the sun setting in the background and it was simply beautiful.
On Day 6 we drove through the Tuscan hillside to Siena, I fell in love with the city immediately. To me it seemed to quintessentially Italian with the red terra cotta coloured buildings. I loved the washing hanging out the windows to dry and the women ...
... We realized that we couldn't watch their TV unless we bought something so Kevin and I bought two Paninis. We though we had 6.20 euros and The sandwiches cost 6. But due to a mis count where we mistook a 5 cent for a 50 cent, we were short 25 cents when we went up to pay for the food. I thought for sure the Italian would take back our food and kick us out but with a wink and a nod he told us to walk off. We then took our food and watched the game with some locals and a few ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alpi Rome
Alpi is OK
We stayed at Alpi our last leg of our honeymoon. the hotel was close to the train but a little hard to find. the lobby was very nice w/ fresh flowers. service was ok - not rude, but not friendly. we did get an upgrade to a nice superior room on the top floor w/ balcony, sitting area and jacuzzi tub w/o shower. the tub OK, but would've preferred a shower. the housekeeping service was pretty good i thought. on our second night, the hotel was having problems w/ water and we almost didn't have any! i guess with old buildings these things can happen. no problems with noise. Breakfast was decent - cappuccino's not very good though. we would probably stay here again, but would prefer something closer in.
The hotel room we had was on the ground floor just off the lobby. It was a small, dark box of a room with no character. The official Alpi website give the impression that this is a much more beautiful place than it is. The shower drain kept stopping up and we had to have it fixed both days we were there due to overflowing. Although waking distance to the train station, it's far away from everything else. Overall, we were disappointed.
The Alpi is located about three blocks from Termini, which was convienent but load due to the traffic. We had a room with a balcony on the third floor (room 371), and experienced some traffic noise. We tried to block some of the traffic noise with the airconditioner, which did not was not operating and was needed even in early May. The breakfast was typical. The staff was not friendly, but not rude. The room was clean, and we enjoyed the "hot tub," which is really a bathtub with a few water jets. Service was substandard, with the staff failing to restock the bathroom or to respond to my complaint about the airconditioning. I know what to expect from a three-star in Rome: not much. However, I payed extra for a "superior" room and left wondering what was the extra I payed for. Overall, I would not go back to the Alpi as there are better deals to be had in Rome.
