TravelPod Member ReviewsBarcelo Aran Mantegna Rome
We were in a room as far away from the lift as you could possibly be. Even so, it was a nice room and we finally had a double bed.
The bar actually had dry ginger ale so Anne tucked into some brandy.
The hotel is close to Ciampino Airport. We made a mistake in taking an airport shuttle. A taxi would have been much quicker nd about the same price.

Eventually, though, it was time to go, and I headed out of the Colosseum and made my way along to the entry of the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. I ran out of time to explore the ruins on Palatine Hill fully, but I did have a good ...
... to the river, past the end of the tunnel that goes under the northern part of the Giancolo. We crossed the Tiber via the Ponte Principe Amedeo di Savoia, and walked the couple of short blocks to the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. At that point we managed to go in a circle, and got to the point we just sat down for lunch at the first place that looked good (although there's no shortage of decent food here). However, Xander decided, as I was ...
... food and wine! YESS! While we were eating, we ended up meeting up with this guy from Philly named Matt and he invited us to go drink with him and some other people he met. Those people turned out to be our roommates and two other guys from southern California. We bought some beer and sat on the hill that faces the Colosseum- pretty neat to see it all lit up at night. At that point, I was pretty exhausted and was happy when we headed home for ...
