... always losing, gladiators in chariots dragging people behind them in the stones, so much horrific history, but we all still think it's an amazing place.
Walked around till we found the Piazza Venezia, an enormous white building with neptune laying around watching everyone and lots of soldiers on horses on the roof. There were a couple of serious looking guards next to what may have been an eternal flame. From what we can gather it's a monument ...
... Each level was visibley different but the preservation was mindblowing. Dan just loved being able to walk in an ancient Roman home from the 1st century. There was even a school on the lower level, that surprised the boys- can't escape school lads!
When we resurfaced we investigated the present level Basilica. Dan & Alex lit a candle in rememberance of Nan & Pop , a special moment for us. The cloisters outside were so still and calm so we ...
... people watched, dodged vespas, laughed, cried, gasped, and threw our coin in the Trevi so we will definitely return to Rome some day.
I can't believe it is over, 14 months of planning, saving and counting down the days, and now after 5 1/2 weeks it's all over, bar the memories. We have had the most fabulous time and we can honestly say we were not disappointed with any aspect of our adventure. One thing is for sure though, we ...
... headed towards the colosseum and wanted to find a nice place for lunch, but for some reason we were in an area with very few meal options. We ended up just getting pizza from a fast food place. It was good pizza. :P when we walked out from the pizza place it was raining. Gem and I had umbrellas but Teleah decided to tough it out without one! We did a tour of the colosseum and the surrounding ruins. We had a pretty good tour guide. It was amazing seeing all of ...
... excited to be rolling around everywhere now. For him, that's the greatest present you could get in Europe. :). We went to the Pantheon and saw Raphael's tomb. We went to the Piazza Navona and saw more Bernini fountains. It's pretty awesome. And yesterday, on the hottest day so far and possibly of the season (as predicted now) we went to a water park and went down water slides. No pictures of that; I travelled light. It's actually hard for me to leave my camera behind as I like to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aris Garden Rome
4 Star!!! what for?
TERRIBLE. Mouldy shower curtain in an unclean bathroom, with the hairdryer repaired by some other guests luggage sticker. Electric plug on lamp procariously repaired with insulating tape- Thank god we had no children. Staff less helpful than a chocolate tea-pot. 40 EURO taxi journey to the airport- rather steep for an out of town hotel advertising close proximity to the airport. Price was the same as from a central Rome Hotel.Only stayed here 1 night to be close to airport (and it isn't).
There is no reason to stay here...EVER.
The flight went very well, and we were very well
treated at the Aris Garden Hotel. The room was fine
except that that were roaches all over the bathroom, but we were able to kill them every evening. The television set never received all of the
listed stations. Breakfast was good, and the staff went a little out of their way to make sure that we
WORST HOTEL EVER
i can not believe this was rated as a 4 star hotel, the list of amenites which the hotel were supose to have were not true. The hotel staff were very rude and unhelpful we had to pay 35 euro's to park our car in there hotel car park. There was mould on the walls in our room and there were ants in the bathroom, the rooms were not cleaned every day and the bed sheets only change twice during our stay. The pool bar was never open apart from weekends, the restaurant was the worst i have steped foot into. the hair dryer in our room was broken and we had to have cold showers some mornings and the mini bar was only full of water. i would never recommed this hotel to anyone.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
To far outside Rome, not what we expected
Booked our stay via Expedia. Looked nice on their site, and didn't appear (from the information provided) to be too far from the City Centre. When we arrived, reception were polite and spoke fairley good English. Pool was unheated every day fairly cold to use! Restaurant was very overpriced for the quality and variety of food (a €24 set menu was provided that was almost identical every night). Not much is available localy unless you have a car. Getting into the City is either via the provided shuttle and subsequent Metro or via Public Bus and subsequent Metro. It takes a good 60 mins to get anywhere near the centre. Both stop running way to early to take advantage of Rome in the evening. All in all I would never stay there again nor would I recommend it to anyone.
Where did the 4 Stars come from!!
We arrived at the hotel early August afternoon to unhelpful staff. Trying ot get information out of them was like getting blood from a stone. We went to the resaurant for lunch and was only offered steak and chips - no menu and not very Italian. The dinner menu was expensive, 24 euros per person and was not imaginative at all - a choice of two main courses does not count for excellent cuisine!! The hotel is miles away from the centre and takes a bus (shuttle or other) and the metro to get to anything of interest. The room was an ok size, but a double bed consisted of two singles pushed together, the mini bar was empty, the shower was disgracful and the shower curtain looked like it hadn't been cleaned or changed in years. The main advantage of this hotel was the swimming pool, but any length of time in it would have cause hypothermia. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!!
I arrived at the hotel mid-morning to a frosty welcome to say the least.
I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, and every night the were only two meals on the menu, roast beef or Risotto. I didn't go to Italy for Roast Beef.
The hotel is miles from anywhere, the mini bar was kept empty, when plugged in didn't work. The window was broken. The cupboard door was almost off the hinges. Tiny rooms.
I do not understand how this hotel is considered a four star. I would not recommed this hotel to anyone, I would advise avoiding it.
Really really out of town
The hotel was not bad but it was so far out that we spent too much time getting tothe city!! also all public transport i.e. bus stopped plying at 11.30pm which meant that we had to leave centre of rome by 10.00 pm which we found to be too early. I would advise that even if you want to save money staying slightly out of rome, stay close to one of the tube stations so that at least you have ready acess till quite late. Thsi hotel was about 35-40 minutes awa y from tube station by bus!!
Wonderful hotel - Restaurant was excellent
We were very pleased with the quality of the hotel. Our room was very comfortable, and the staff was very attentive and helpful.
The restaurant was heavenly.
The only drawback is the hotel's distance to the sights of Rome! Keep in mind this is a "country" hotel - which is not easy to glean from the advertisements on the internet. It cost us 100 euros total every day to get back and forth to Rome and the cab drivers complained late at night when we needed a ride back to our hotel. There is a hotel shuttle to and from the train station - but that only operates a few times a day. So while the room rate was inexpensive - the cost of transportation made up the difference in price of staying in Rome proper. I would recommend this hotel to someone who wants a relaxing Rome experience, but if one is planning on catching the highlights of Rome every day - stick with a hotel in the Spanish Steps or Piazza Navona areas.
Hotel Aris Garden
The hotel is located about 20km from the centre of Rome. The city centre is easily reached in about 30 minutes by bus and Metro for a cost of only 1 Euro.
The hotel is a modern 6 storey building and the decoration is a bit over the top and not to everyone's taste. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very polite and helpful.
The standard of food and service in the restaurant is excellent. The locals eat out there. Need I say more!
Okay, but way outside of Rome!
We purchased our hotel stay from Expedia. I was impressed with all of the features and the pretty pictures. It made it seem like it wasn't too far from the city, since they provided complimentary transportation to one of the subway stations. It turned out to be quite far. Their shuttle service only ran to the subway station twice a day (in the morning). You were able to take the bus, but the bus took 30 minutes to get to the subway station. The subway ride was another 15 minutes to the city center. The bus stopped running too early for us (around 11 on non-holidays), then you were forced to take a cab to the hotel (around $30). The hotel rooms were clean, but the decor was old. Our bed was extremely firm. The hotel did have some good points. The staff was very helpful. The restaurant was touristy, but the food was good. They had a lounge singer that sang along to his keyboard, which was entertaining, but not authentic. I would not stay here again.
