... filled both the slender and more generous streets chock-a-block with Vespas, SmartCars, Fiats, and Ferraris. As urban planning goes, it seems a bit haphazard; however, it does tend to keep pedestrians on their toes.
Friday found us trekking through these old city streets from our hotel to the Holy See.
Along the way we hit some of the highlights of Rome’s historical landmarks:

Hope to post photos and more of an update tonight. Fingers crossed they get the WiFi working (sitting at reception on their computer at the moment!)
Updated 14/7 - had enough of Faulty Towers, promised WiFi for 3 days and still wasn't working. So moved to another Hotel not far down the road yesterday. Much better, but had to get two rooms ...
... felt like an angel! Could have stayed there for ages, but there was the ever pressing thought that we hadn't really made it to the top yet! Was a tight squeeze for David as the dome shaped walkway narrowed in , and the last tiny spiral staircase looked like it belonged to a dolls house! I will have to confirm the reliability of the story that in 1963 Dad carried me up all the way on his shoulders! My 2 best sources are not here to ask unfortunately! We were able ...
Like eating Chinese Food in China . . . Italian food in Italy does not seem to be related at all to Italian Food as Americans know it . . . and the earth tilted when Larry saw me sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on my cannelloni. For those of you who do not know I HATE Parmesan cheese . . . But after I realized that the reasonably tasty white stuff sprinkled all over my cannelloni was Parmesan I ...
... him and was brilliant, nodding and grunting in the right moments and laughing along with the Italians in the group of 7 or 8 of us.
We left the Crypta and had 3 hours before the tour at 9:15 so we headed toward the Pantheon. We found it shut, so we peered through the door and had a small glimpse at the amazing place we'd just missed! This place is HUGE. We went to the side of the piazza and had another gelato or crépe ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aventino Rome
Great Stay in Rome!
A great stay in Rome! Excellent price for a superb facilities with POSSIBLY private free parking and jacuzzi. Strongly recommended for location and quitness. I'll be back. BRAVI!
Haven in Rome
What a delight to find this lovely group of small hotels in the Aventine Hills in Rome. Amid quiet, residential streets, even the cabs needed to consult a map to get there. But, they are definitely worth the effort. Rooms vary in size but are all lovely and air conditioned. Staff are very attentive without being intrusive. Quite a bargain also. We stayed as a group of 11 in early September and it was wonderful
Only being a 3 star the hotel Aventino S. Anselmo wasn't high up in my mind for expectations. In Rome, my wife and I needed a nice clean and serene room from which to base our excursions.
My family and I stayed at the Aventino for 4 nights. Both rooms were nice and clean (no frills) and the bathrooms were okay. The whirlpool in one room could not be used because it smelled of backed up water after the 2nd day. In the other room, the shower would wet the floor, but this was quickly corrected by management. The breakfast room was lovely with an outdoor dining area. Breakfast with a pianist playing was a nice touch. The area is lovely and a brisk walk downhill leads to a fabulous bakery and a pizzeria at the end of the block. Due to an unfortunate accident I had at the ruins, it was nice to be able to get food from somewhere else besides the hotel. My husband brought pizza, wine, and pastries to the hotel on a couple of occasions. After being out all day it was nice peaceful place to retreat to. We returned to the Aventino after our stay in Venice and received a larger room with a seating area and a great bathroom. It was within the same property, but higher end at the same price. It was a nice way to end our trip. The buses and trams can be easily accessed at the end of the hill.
Wonderful decore, delicious breakfast and restful location
This hotel far exceeded our expectations! Located on the Aventine hill, it was in a quiet tree shaded neighborhood within a close walk to the circus maximus. From the ornate parque wood floor to the molded ceiling and brocade bedspreads and balcony, we felt pampered and rested in our spacious room. A whirlpool bath was a real treat after all of the walking we did. The breakfast buffet was sumtuous and the breakfast room was delightfullly decorated. A garden patio was also available for sitting and eating. The maids were dressed in black with frilly white aprons and caps, just like out of an old movie. It was a wonderful place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! Buses down the hill made anywhere in Rome accessible.
