... a glass of bubbly each while our table was prepared.
Our hosts suggested a mixed starter of Italian antipasti and we all opted for that. Plate upon plate of salami's cooked meats, fish dishes, veg dishes etc. Linda and Kath both trying new dishes such as moules (mussels) and Calamari.
With individual main courses mainly variant types of pasta we were all full (maybe also the multiple bottles of wine also attributed !!)
We must apologise to ...
... street vendors here too, seeking their handbags, umbrellas and even roses for the couples. Down at the bottom of the steps was a fountain depicting a sinking boat, the Barcaccia. What I found rather freaky though, was as we went up the steps, at exactly 2:45pm all the street pedlars except the ones with roses, suddenly picked up their wears in their bed sheets they use as displays and legged it. Maybe the cops were on their way, I don't know, but they all just ...
... we couldn't really get to it when we visited it the other day. Well, we arrived at it and found it drained. There were men in the fountain collecting all the money that people have thrown in. There were thousands and thousands of coins the men were sweeping and scooping up to put in trash bags. We watched them for a while before continuing to wander around. We spent a few hours looking at places, grabbing a cappuccino, and shopping ...
... of all, new, amazing friends. There are some that I will for sure find a way to visit, and others I will keep up with on Facebook, but either way I truly hope to keep in touch. Just like when I left Virginia, it was so bittersweet. So happy to get back to friends and family who I love very much but so sad to leave the new people I'd grown to love. My mom was right; she always told me that adult friendships take work ...
... It's a really simple place - just a service counter with the icecream hidden in lidded metal tubs and no advertising apart from their reviews decorating the walls. But with flavours like pear sorbet, apple sorbet, honey cream (their signature flavour), caramel meranguie (Ben thought he'd died and gone to Heaven), Duncan Taylor whisky, pomegranate sorbet, various other alcoholic flavours plus all the usual suspects, who needs anything else!
We took our delicious creations ...

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!
