... right bus. Our goal of taking a night photo won against the hunger.
It was an amazing walk around the Colosseum. It was deserted and the view was simple superb against the backdrop of starry skies.
After quite some photography, We went back to our hotel and had a good dinner at a restaurant nearby. And it was a satisfied night and a great start to the truly amazing vacation.
... empire from start to finish. I took pics of all of them. It is amazing how many territories the Roman Empire extended.
At the Military Museum, we found a painting of Jesus on the wall on the cross. We then took the lift up to the roof of the Museum and I got fabulous fotos of Roma from the roof top! OMG, it is so beautiful. I got a stunning picture of the piazza down below (I can't remember which one) with all the streets coming into the piazza. ...
... paintings were depicting and some of the history behind them, thanks to our guide.
It was also pretty awesome to be in a completely different state... the Vatican. That makes country number 21 for me if you count it...
After the Vatican we walked to the trainstation after getting our stored bags from the hostel and got the 3 hour train to Florence. Because we got there so late, we went straight to Pistoia, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Della Torre Argentina Rome
The location of this hotel could not be better. Half way between the Colosseum and St Peters. I walked everywhere. A popular bus stop is right in front of the hotel if you don't want to walk.
Everything was very clean and the bathroom was very nice. Breakfast (included) is adequate, just a little above continental. Newer windows help to keep the street noises down. The room had a minibar, hairdryer & cable TV. There was no internet access or iron in the room.
When I checked out I was able to store my luggage in a closet off the lobby while I walked to a few more sights. This luggage closet was basically self service and was left unlocked and mostly unattended. Not a place you would want to leave a laptop or other valuables.
To get between the hotel and the airport I used the express train to Termini for 9.50 Euro and a taxi from the hotel to the station for about 11 Euro. The front desk called the cab which arrived promply in a couple of minutes.
If you're not looking for a resort or 5 star hotel, I would recommend the Hotel Della Torre Argentina as a good choice in a perfect location.
My family and I have stayed at many hotels in Rome over the last 20 years, and just got back from a week at the hotel della torre argentina. The hotel was great for its location, room (we have the quad suite for 4 at the back of the hotel with a terrace), service and breakfast. The desk staff was helpful but not overly friendly (which was fine). It is on the super busy Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, so it probably is best to ask for a room at the back. We definitely would stay there again!
Great hotel, great city!
My wife and I stayed here recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was well attended and the location cannot be beat. You are minutes from the Pantheon, Piazza Navonna and Campo Del Fiori.
The patio on top was beautiful for watching the sunset and enjoying a bottle of wine.
Another favorite was visiting the cats in the ruins right next to the hotel, they actually run a shelter there to keep the strays fed and out of the streets.
We will definitely consider staying there again on our next trip back!
Great Location! Good Business Hotel
Stayed at the Argentina in November 2004 and found it to be a good business style hotel. The location is really excellent -- 5 minute walk from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Room was nicely decorated and the marble bath was WONDERFUL! Breakfast was nice. There is no concierge, but the front desk staff spoke good English and were helpfulexcept that they did not take telephone messages from our callers. I had not been to Rome in more than 30 years so I am not really up on hotel prices. This hotel was about $200 per night at a special rate arranged for us by another hotel that had cancelled our reservation at the last minute. Normally, the Argentina is quite bit more expensive. It seemed very pricey for being a simple business hotel, but it was very clean, nicely decorated, and very safe. Depending on the price, I'd stay again.
When in Rome
Spacious and tastly furnished rooms, very good breakfast, excellent location on Piazza Argentina archeo-site and within walking distance from Campo de Fiori and major monuments. Excellent stay for business.
What a Wonderful Hotel
I cannot say enough about this hotel. It's quaint and small and the location couldn't be better. You can walk to the Pantheon, the Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain, and the Coliseum/Roman Forum are a short taxi ride away.
The best part of this hotel is the 2 rooms on the top floor that have private balconies that overlook the city of Rome. It's the perfect setting for a late night 'wine and cheese' fest.
Breakfast is included and the staff is very helpful.
Looking forward to visiting the Della Torre again in the near future.
