... was made along the way as well as a leather bag shop. In the markets there were some amazing floral displays for sale for Christmas and many beautiful flowers and plants. If we weren’t travelling I would have bought some. We walked to the Piazza Navona which was filled with market stalls for Christmas and merry go rounds. There were lots of people and lots of noise but it was a fun atmosphere. We did have a short stop waiting for the rain to ease before heading to the Pantheon. ...
Sunny 26 degrees, Rome
Perfect weather. A beautiful early morning walk into Rome solo to take some Pantheon and Piazza Navona shots minus the crowds. Meet some Americans in Piazza Della Rotonda. They are waiting for a tour to the Amalfi coast. Their driver is 20 mins late and they are not happy. I remind them that this is Italy and just as we have a laugh he shows up. They will be feeling it at the end of a 13 hour day tour!
Back home, we ...

After a snack and a drink we wandered down to the river past a strip of (dodgy) souvenir shops. April traded her recently purchased wallet and we watched as the sellers swiftly gathered their goods and fled whenever the police appeared. We all agreed it was time for a siesta and found our way to a bus stop. A couple of stops later, who should hop on but ...

Walking tour and coliseum was amazing. Met great people along the way. The tour guide was great.
... the tickets were good for 75 minutes) and went to the Trevvi Fountain. It was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be, basically the entire side of a building. Also, it was so crowded! We eventually managed to get a picture in front of the fountain and throw coins in (over our shoulders, it's apparently the way it's done) to ensure a return trip to Rome.
We decided to walk to the Coliseum instead of messing with another Metro ticket and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fortyseven Hotel Rome
I stayed here for 4 nights in September for my first trip to Rome. Having no previous experience of the city I went on what information I could glean from the expedia website (and I have to say, got a great deal, too).
Superb Hotel in a wonderful position. I did lots of research before going to Rome and read that this Hotel was above average - well it certainly was. We stayed for 3 days 2 nights, the staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was a lovely continental breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, cereal and pastries. I chose a suite for our stay which was spacious, clean and with lovely views over the ruins, (my son enjoyed the remote control shutters and other gadgets!). You are only a 5 minute walk from the Rome Forum and Colesseum with all the other attractions within walking distance. I would recommend this Hotel and would definately use it again on my next visit to Rome.
I stayed at the Fortyseven for four nights in december. The inside of the hotel is designed and decorated in a very cool and modern way with lots fine art, clever designs and cool designer furniture. This makes a great contrast to the fact that once you step outside the door you also stepped into ancient Rome. Something you will also get a glimpse of from the delightful, good sized terrace that came with my standard room.
I spent four days at the Fortyseven Hotel in November, having conducted thorough research first. The hotel is new and clean, with modern furnishings. The breakfast is simple but adequate. Our room was very nice, with a beautiful bathroom. However I had two issues with the room. Firstly, our room was next to the noisy lift which kept me awake. Secondly, we were at the rear of the hotel, which was dark and certainly did not have any view, unless you are very interested in office blocks.
Myself and 2 girlfriends were in Rome for 3 nights at the begining of October for some food wine shopping and a bit of culture. We all loved Rome found something amazing around every corner.
We stayed at a new hotel near the colleseum
47 hotel, via petroselli, ------------------, opened in April very contemporary, extremly clean and well cared for, lift to all floors, huge bed, shower could have fitted 10 people in.
Rooms were lovely and big, we had the double deluxe loved the automatic window shutters,breakfasts were on the whole excellent with a good choice of food.
All in all we had a fantastic weekend the hotel was better than we could have possibly hoped for we would all love to return.
Fantastic Hotel with Excellent Service
We have just returned from a four day break at the Forty Seven. I carried out extensive research before choosing the hotel as we were taking our 11 month old son abroad for the first time. We found the location to be excellent and within easy walking distance of the main sites, this is taking into consideration the Italian pavements and a pushchair! Our room overlooked the Temple of Vesta and was large, modern and extremely clean. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpfull. They helped by constantly heating bottles and ensuring our son felt at home. My wife is a Sales Director of a Luxury Hotel chain in the UK and she considers the Forty Seven to be the best hotel we have stayed in abroad. We will definately return.
I'm quite shocked at the other entry for this hotel as I only have excellent things to say. I travel on worldwide business for 10 days per month and have very high expectations after staying in many luxury hotesl. This hotel met and exceeded our expectations. Our room was large, modern, clean, and had all the ammenties expected for a luxury hotel. And, we definitely paid the average low rate (I've heard lots of bad stories about Hotels so would never use them though). The service at reception, breakfast, dinner, etc. was excellent. Examples - when we checked in we were escorted to our room by one of the managers while another person took care of our bags; one evening, the waiter brought us complementary sandwiches for us to sample; when we requested an authentic but not too expensive Italian restaurant, the front desk clerk gave us an excellent recommendation with directions. The hotel's location is perfect. It's within walking distance to the Collesium and many other glorious sites. It's also very safe. For those of you on business, the front desk is excellent at locating a taxi that takes credit card and ensuring you get to your office in the suburbs without any hassles. I conducted extensive research in selecting the right hotel and this one proved to be an excellent choice. will definitely stay here again.
We booked via expedia. Hotel is new and has nice finishes. Our only complaint about our spacious room was the low water pressure in the shower. The staff was very friendly but not very effective. We asked for a restaurant recommendation and were directed to the most mediocre dinner we had in our whole 9 day italian visit. When we asked them to call a cab on our departure by train they called a cab for the airport (easily straightened out though.) When we tried to have laundry done they said leave it in the room for the maids. We bagged it and filled out the slip but it was just pushed into a corner. The next day was Sat and hotel couldn't get it done but the most useful staff help of the visit: a guy told us (somewhat embarassedly) about a local laundromat and they did it no problem and for 1/5th the price!
First, the only reason I'm giving 2 stars, not 1: it IS a new hotel with good decor and nice public spaces, and the breakfast was terrific. The problem was service and failure to get the kind of room we had booked in advance, and it was about the worst reception I've ever encountered. Short(ish) version: We booked a room for 3 on hotels.com, and paid in advance. We also requested a room with a view of the monuments, having picked the hotel for its location. When we arrived after being shown to a rather nice room, we were then moved to a small, dank, dark room overlooking a grafitti-scrawled wall. The manager on duty gave us a series of confusing explanations, which seemed to change by the minute, with the upshot being that he never got our hotels.com reservation, only my 'special' requests made later. First he offered to move us, then he said he couldnt. WHY WOULD THEY BRING US TO A ROOM, THEN SAY IT WASN'T AVAILABLE? I wasn't buying that. It was ridiculous, and no attempts to provide 'customer service' were made. When I got home the executive who I emailed explained (after apologizing) only that while we booked a deluxe room for 3 on hotels.com, the site didn't charge us for one. She said that was their (hotels.com's) mistake. So I'll be emailing them too, if nothing else to alert them that the hotel is putting this on them. Also she said my request for a smoking room was an issue, since the hotel only has one floor with smoking rooms (be warned, it's the 2nd floor...). THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER CHOICES IN ROME, SO KEEP LOOKING! We were only here one night, but it was the last night of our big trip to Italy, and nearly ruined it.
