Today was our only full day in Rome. After breakfast we walked our block to the Colosseum. We took the tour offered in English with the guide for €5 and it was the best 45 mins we spent! After a quick sugar fuelled snack we hit Palatino or Palatine Hill. It was hot, but we kept filling our water bottles from the fountains and the views from the hill are amazing! The highlight for this ...
... best described as a very large arts and crafts project consisting of artfully arranged monk bones(4,000+) in a decorative fashion.
Seeing the crypt is both thought provoking and haunting. Whoever thought of such a "project" and why? The crypt is also peaceful and beautiful, especially knowing that the living Capuchin monks would come daily to pray for their deceased brothers. There are small chapelets within the crypt, some with intact skeletons of monks resting ...

First night in Rome -
The program officially began with mass at St. Peter's on Friday night, after which everyone had dinner. Later, about half the group went to the Piazza Navona, followed by the Scholars Lounge, an Irish/American/Australian haven in the middle of Rome. The place ...
... visit. For many it was emotional because we has changed from strangers with common interests to friends. Random thought: We didn't get to see the town of Pisa on this trip, but Fernando says that's OK because they only have one thing there and they can't keep it straight! In the middle ages Pisa had the market on salt cornered, and to this day the stubborn Tuscans in other cities make bread without salt. The bread was awful, by the ...

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.
