Travel Blogs from Rome
Overseas vacations start at your departing airport. A friendly airline check in along with a comfortable seat assignment helps set a positive attitude for your trip. From the beginning at Logan Airport in Boston to our destination in Rome, Italy and back again our air arrangements and flights on Alitalia Airlines were perfect. …
... museum containing the bones of over 28,000 Capichin monks. (And yes that is where we get the name capachinno). Again no photos allowed but it really is a strangely morbid place - all the bones are arranged in varying ways to decorate the walls and create shrines. Some bodies are still fully in tact and not entirely decomposed... It's quite a disturbing place but a must see in Rome. I imagine A little like the Catacombs in Paris.

... amazing local artists selling their paintings and sketches in this piazza. Three magnificent fountains and church here with other shops and cafes. Lisa found her perfect leather coat after looking all day for one.
Wandered our way through the many small traditional roman streets to the Pantheon, another massive building hidden among residential housing.

... bus drops us off in the heart of the Renaissance Rome and we meet up with the local guide, Luca. He gives the woman a bit of a thrill with his accented English deeply tanned skin and blue eyes, lots of whispering from the girls. First stop after a short walk is the Trevi fountain. It is magnificent, but huge. The square that it is in is tiny and I can't get far enough back to get a proper photo. Also one side is under restoration so it is not at it's best. In fact lots of ...
... good to use the internet and check facebook after a few days of
no internet or slow internet. I was using my net book and everyone

this time. We had dinner at the restaurant, a very nice pizza, then
went back outside and used the internet.
As we entered the campsite we were given

Good hotel, TERRIBLE location
The hotel is lovely - nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable with a decent breakfast. But the location is dreadful, and extremely scary at night (and I'm from Brooklyn, so clearly I do not scare easily to sketchy nighttime activites). Pay a bit more and stay in a better location, like near the Spanish Steps.
We stayed at the Astoria Garden Hotel in December 2003 and found it to be a great little hotel. We used their shuttle service from the airport for EURO 55.00 (for 4 people) which saved us a lot of aggravation. The hotel is located between two metro stops which made getting around very easy. There were also lots of good, inexpensive restauransts in the area. The showers were wonderful and the staff was very helpful.
Great Place to Stay
After two tiny showers in London and Paris, getting the showers here seemed huge! Very clean, spacious, and the staff is extremely friendly.
The hotel is a short walk from Termini, which gets you where ever you want to go. Breakfast was acceptable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Rome.
The Astoria Garden Hotel is Fantastic
The Astoria Garden Hotel was fantastic. The rooms were large, well decorated and clean. It was nice to be able to relax in the garden after a day's sight seeing. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very friendly.
Excellent hotel that perfectly balances class with value.Within comfortable walking distance of the famous sights and areas (10mins), this hotel benefits from being slightly away from the traffic and other tourists. That is not to say that this hotel is remote its a turning away from the main train/bus/metro terminal and so you can get anywhere very quickly.The hotel is bright and airy, and really has that touch of class that makes a holiday in Rome special. The rooms are simple, but of high quality and have the two essentials a good bed and a great shower! Staff are always friendly and courteous, going out of their way to make your stay comfortable.Truly a wonderful hotel that I would eagerly recommend to anyone.
