Was on the way to see the Colisseum and found out that my camera didn't like the memory card I put in it. So no pictures today.
I did make it to the Colisseum though and it is oddly both bigger and smaller than expected.
To think that the Romans built this thing with just muscle power and some clever engineering (oh, and lots of …

The guide took us through the main road and explained the purpose of most of the buildings. Many were temples and victory arches dedicated to the Emperors but the most fascinating was the Domitian Palace. In its day the palace was 16 acres...dats a lota bathrooms. The front room was a private amphitheatre where they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel delle Nazioni Rome
Wonderful location & staff!
I booked the Hotel Delle Nazioni with hotels.com for my 20 year old daughter traveling with a friend. She and I could not have been more pleased! The location is fabulous and the staff was very courtious and helpful. I would not hesitate to use hotels.com & book this hotel again. Many thanks for jobs well done!
We (me and my wife) stayed there five years ago on honeymoon and it was wonderfull.
The hotel was advertised as recently renovated...it was completely under construction. Advertised as air conditioned...the air conditioning was not working ANYWHERE in the hotel. Each evening we had to make a choice to either suffocate or open the lone window and suffer the unbearable noise. Staff was unusually unfriendly. We were very surprised and disappointed. Would not recommend it.
We loved the Delle Nazioni so much, we are planning a second visit. The rooms were clean comfortable and incredible value for money considering the brilliant location, just steps to the Trevi, Via Veneto and the Spanish steps. The friendly and very helpful staff (they found a tiny and authentic restaurant for us based on a specific meal) were the icing on the cake. Look forward to our third trip there.
Lively to a fault
I booked the hotel based on trip advisor reviews. We arrived in late February to a roasting room. We finally got that sorted by opening the windows but the traffic noise was dreadful. The rooms are comfortable and well refurbished. We moved rooms to reduce the noise, but to no avail. Over our four days we got virtually no sleep, with the windows fully shut. The trafic noise is totally unacceptable. As to why nobody else has commented I cannot imagine. True the location is excellent, but the noise ruins it.
The Hotel Delle Nazioni is in the perfect area, close to everything worth seeing and doing in Rome. It's immaculate and the staff is very accomodating and helpful. Great hotel overall.
I echo the previous writer's sentiments, we had a suite also, although not sure if it was room 109. The suite was very pleasant, the only drawback was that it was on the corner of the building, and was a little noisy from pedestrians going to the (very close) Trevi fountain, even at 11pm. I would imagine the noise would be worse in the high season, we were there at end of April 2003. But all the staff were great, very helpful, and the food was very good. Location great for the fountain, also Spanish Steps, via Condotti etc
20 steps to the Trevi
We had room 109, the junior suite, which was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is literally 30 yards from the Trevi Fountain which almost ensures you can get there early for your photos. Despite its location, the hotel does not have much traffic noise. Apart from the Trevi, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and the Vittoriana Emanuel 2 palace are all an easy walk. Its also close to the best shopping in Rome on Via Corso. Try the shoe shop opposite the Trevi for reasonably priced fashion. The restaurants we tried around the Trevi were all okay.
