Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Domus Praetoria Rome
Domus Praetoria is a great little hotel
I can't say enough good things about this little hotel. It is extremely clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very nice, and the prices are very reasonable.It's a very small hotel, with only about 10 rooms, off of Termini station, but it is a gem. The neighborhood is in a nice area and everyone is very helpful even if you don't speak Italian.

... friend, Jeanne, then decided a stroll around an as-yet-unexplored section of Salaria (the name of our enclave) was needed. I wound my way just a handful of blocks to the Villa Torlonia and reveled in the cool morning breeze. I do believe I found my oasis! Watch the short video clip (really just listen) and you'll probably have the same thought I did - Is there really an enormous city just beyond ...

She won them over in the end with her stories of how the Romans wiped their bums with a sponge on a stick and how the streets of Pompeii were awash with "poopy and wee wees" hence the stepping stones everywhere. Poo stories win them over every time! Anyway we loved Lucia and she loved Pompeii because she really was a mine of ...
Today was amazing! Although we woke up feeling ill (stupid sick bus gave us colds), we took the metro up to see the Colosseum. Last night we walked by it, but today we actually took a tour and got to roam the inside! Now, it actually isn't named the 'Colosseum', that is just a nickname based on the statue of Nero that used to stand out front that was as tall as the building! The statue gained the name 'Colossus' and the amphitheater was nicknamed ...
... and enjoy the stroll.
The walk was truly magical and featured colurful neighborhoods, narrow lanes, piazzas, fountains and some of Italy's best people watching. We were able to see two times - once in the late afternoon on our way to dinner and again in the evening on our walk back from dinner. Depending on the time of day, the walk had different charming characteristics. It made me see Rome in a new way. I had always thought of Rome as hot, big, and confusing. This ...
