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!

... should have realised what with the man being at the door on the outside of the church and not inside. However, in my readings, with some churches there's no admission as such but donation expected. Got myself confused. Realised we'd been had when we were asked to "pay" on the way out. Venturing towards home in pursuit of yet another 'Romes best gelateria' we ended up in a rather formal district flagged by MPs with semi automatics..worked out there were embassies and defence headquarters ...

As soon as we walked outside, the heavens opened. I swear within 10 seconds of the first drop falling there were about 6 hawkers trying to sell us umbrellas and ponchos. We just stood under an awning and waited for 5 mins until the rain cleared and then it was beautiful blue sky again. Rome ...
This morning there are hundreds in the courtyard outside St Peter's Basilica including many on pilgrimages. After getting through security we find a spot and see the event unfold. Popey isn't in his glass covered popemobile but in a popewagon. He winds in and out of the crowds before arriving at the altar for his audience. Unfortunately his speech is in Latin so I have no idea what he spoke of.

After returning to the apartment with the goodies from Castroni, they proceeded to the local grocery store (where Dee inadvertently lost one of her grocery carry bags) for milk, eggs, and ...

We will catch an early bus to Indy in the morning then pick up our sweet puppies from boarding!! Thank you so much for coming along with us on this trip of a lifetime!
