Day 24 Today we went to the local market had look around, it. Was much smaller than the market at Saint Remy but still good with lots of fresh food for sale like the most beautiful goats cheeses. I bought one that was in the shape of a fig, it was soft, mild and had a little bit of fig in the middle which made it a little sweet ( yumo ). We had coffee sitting out side the bakery in the sun, the girls in the shop made us ...
... I am glad I got to see it once again. It's funny.... 28 years ago, my mom's first question at the museum was to ask why the male private parts were missing from a lot of the statues. That was Sydney's first observation and question today! We always knew Sydney had some of her Nonnie in her! Words cannot describe St. Peter's Basilica..... My photos did not come out very well, but it was just amazing. Sydney was much more interested in the history than I thought she would be. ...
... the portico in the middle. Also, inside are buried Victor Emmanuel and Raphael. After dinner nearby, we walked over to the famous Trevi Fountains to admire it along with the rest of the huge mob of tourists. Despite the busy scene, it was still breathtaking, softly lit and with the statues appearing to burst forth from the rock along with the flowing water; it's an absolute stunner at night. While our first day in Rome was busy, hot (close to 30), chaotic, and at ...
... it a significant sight for Catholicism.
On our way back to the apartment we stopped at the train station and figured out how to buy tickets. We tried over the web, but became concerned, since we could not print them out. At the station we discovered that our charge card pin number does not work. Luckily the train station was the only place that required a pin. We were able to pay in cash. As it was, it took us almost an hour to find where to buy ...
... of us was the Pantheon which is also called "temple of all the gods". it was built in AD 118. It is lined with tombs holding the bodies of Italian monarchs. Just standing in it was overwhelming.
Now we are back in the room getting ready to go out for sushi. Just kidding! We are off to have a nice Italian dinner.
Still thinking of you all and hoping all is well.
Love to you all

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gea di Vulcano Rome
This is the second time I stay at Gea di Vulcano, and have always loved it. The rooms are clean and the staff pays a lot of attention to details. Plus, for me the most important factor is its location. It is within walking distance to the Quirinale, PLaza Barberini, Fontana di Trevi, Plaza Venecia and other interesting spots. I would recommend this little hotel in Rome.
Comfortable and welcoming
My husband, son, and I stayed at Hotel Gea in March 2005 and had a wonderful experience at the hotel. We had a triple room at a cost much cheaper than many other hotels in the city. The staff was very helpful, particularly Mr. Agron, the evening front desk clerk. Beds were comfortable, the room was spacious and clean, and the breakfasts were very good. The hotel is situated on Via Nazionale, a fairly busy street, but the rooms faced out on much quieter streets.
We definitely plan to stay at Hotel Gea the next time we are in Rome!
Great hotel & location at a great price!
Hotel Gea Di Vulcano is a relatively small hotel (about 20 rooms) located on the Via Nazionale, near Piazza Della Repubblica. We stayed there for a week in July 2004. The hotel is located at a walking distance from the Roma Termini train station, where the Leonardo Express train takes you from Fiumicino airport. The room was very clean, and furniture looked like new. The washroom was quite small, as the sink, shower and toilet took all the available space, but everthing was clean. Staff members were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Gea, it's a great value for the money!
