... built centuries ago seem to be designed to allow a modern ocean liner to pass under them (if you can ignore for a moment the lack of water and imagine a ship on wheels). Forget regular roofs, how does a giant dome take your fancy? You think the MCG is big? Try Cirucs Maximus, scene of the Ben Hur chariot races. It once seated 350,000 people! Rome is so ...
... do. The shops don't open till10am so we were packed and ready for the shuttle pick up before we left for shopping. The boys knew which shop they were going to for clothes and we were there at opening time. The sales lady said that men are like children "they have to be dressed". Viv told her to go ahead which she did and they all bought clothes. Back to the hotel for pick up at 12pm...we felt very sorry for the driver as already the bags are quite a lot heavier than they were when ...
After a week of paper writing and work at the Academy, I took advantage of the Liberation Day holiday to go to the beach with Marta and some friends. It was a really relaxing time and forced me to get out into the sun after too many months scurrying around in the library. We went to the Ostia beach, the ancient Roman port, and laid down on the sand for a while and went running around in the ...
... and the Renaissance. Katie was totally absorbed as was I. The show lasted 30 mins although we were told 45 mins by the surly man behind the counter- a total fib. Anyway, it was really worthwhile.
Afterwards we headed to the extremely crowded but very pretty Trevi Fountain and took the usual sets of photos, threw money in, made wishes, etc etc. Your basic tourist stuff. But it still felt very heady to be in Rome at the Trevi Fountain! I got a real ...

We walked back to the bus (just a short way) then took the long way back to the hotel. All in all a wonderful day, with more to come. We have an early start in the morning, so the photos will have to wait until tomorrow nights installment......

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Golden Rome
A friendly family hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Golden in November 04 the Hotel is small but the romms are very clean and very well maintained, its not far from the Spanish Steps and easy to walk to all the main attractions. We got a taxi from the train station and were ripped off big time, he charged us 60 euro for a very short trip so we walked arouund or used the metro which is cheap, Marco who's family run the hotel arranged a car to bring us to the airport for less than half the price of the taxi, we liked the hotel and the breakfast was plenty and you could have more it was no problem. Would stay there again
Comfort and Italian Touch
The hotel is a nice place to stay in Rome. It is beautifully located in one of the best (probably the best) areas of Rome, taking the first floor of an apartment house. We enjoyed our freshly and beautifully renovated room with an Italian touch in its decoration overlooking a nice ancient wall. The room had two big soundproof windows with shutters one can easily open. Inside the room had facilities corresponding to a 4star hotel: absolutely new furniture and fabrics, air-conditioner, mini-bar, safe, TV, etc. The bathroom was just lovely - spacious and comfortable with plenty of towels.
Everything to the smallest detail was absolutely new, clean and maintained with love.
The family running the hotel was friendly and helpful.
I recommend this hotel to everybody, who is looking for a quiet and comfortable lodging in Rome and does not need big lobbies and public areas.
Four star quality for two star price
Our family of five along with our neighbors truly enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Golden. This hotel takes up a single floor of a beautiful old four story building situated in a wonderful part of Rome. Golden is a small (15 guest rooms), intmate, family run inn with large, clean, beautifully decorated rooms, a fabulous breakfast (included)and a stone's throw from all the sites. We easily got to know Marco, Giuseppe, Mario and the rest of the warm, gracious family who own and run this fine hotel. They arranged for transportation to and from the hotel. They gave us suggestions on where to eat, places to go and answered any questions we had. We booked two rooms, one for our kids and one for the parents. It was great fist trip to ome and we would definately go back to Hotel Golden. Hotel Golden is four stars in our book!!!
