Travel Blogs from Rome

Thursday Roma

Awoke quite early. Left at 6 a.m. to catch the early train to Rome. It arrived on time but was late to leave. Went slowly for a while, then made several unscheduled stops. Power died in the whole carriage and the conductor tried in vain to shepherd us all into other carriages by torchlight. Eventually arrived an hour late …

Pizza, Pasta, Gelato & Ancient Buildings

... so we continued on our walking tour. Our next stop was the Trevy Fountain. Unfortunately the hordes of tourists detract from the beauty of the fountain, but none the less it is still very pretty. We took a special photo for Tevy so be sure to check out the photos that go along with this blog entry. We finished off our day with some excellent gelato! You could tell that the owner of the shop took pride in the taste of his product. He ‘taste ...

Trevi Fountain in the Morning!

A travel blog entry by patty.mcefee


... br>
I walked down Via della Trinita dei Monti towards the Pincio garden, part of Villa Borghese. This is part of the same park that I walked to from the first hotel I stayed at here in Rome, but the park is so big that I’m nowhere near that hotel today. It was beautiful! And so amazing to suddenly be away from the traffic and busyness from below—ha! Along the leafy pathways are numerous stone busts of famous Italians; I walked ...

Roma Therapy

... into trousers, but the modern look of low riding was not a good look for me. Another surprise that it was not too crowded inside, not like Notre Dame where it felt like you were being swept along in a current. Also unlike other churches it was in pristine condition with not a hint of construction work going on. In a word St Peter's ...

Rome in a day, well not quite

... air and land forces. It was really lovely music including the Athem which members of the crowd sung to.

Down the other side is the Trajan Market, Column and Victor Emmanuel Monument, Capitoline Hill including the church of Santa Maria Aracoeli, Caesars Forum, and a little down the way the Colosseum. We had a quick look at all and will return in depth to the Colosseum in the next couple of days. We got a ticket to go up the 'Rome in the Sky' lift ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grifo Rome



    First thing to say about this hotel is that it is not going to suit anyone who is looking for luxury standards. The facilities are basic, the rooms are small by any standards and I didn't notice any internet access from the room although it may have been available on request from elsewhere in the hotel. Also, the mini fridge had no accessible plug socket so we had to do some rearranging of furniture to have the benefit of that facility.

    Not up to standards


    We visited Rome and stayed at the Grifo in October of 2003. It is near the Collusium and surrounded by some great resturants. The hotel itself was not what I would consider up to my standards. I have been to Europe several times, so I knew what to expect. It was very expensive with hardly no ammenities. I knew upon arriving, this was not going to be a hotel to write home about. First, the hotel did not have our room ready, even though we arrived after check in time. The door to the room is the old time skelatin key, in which you have to use to lock the door from the inside as well as the outside. The room has ceramic tile floors, which were not clean and made the room very cold. The bathroom had mold in it and the towels were like a tablecloth. The bed was the worse I have ever slept in. The matress was very hard and the full size bed consisted of two twin matresses pushed together. You have to pay 10 euros extra for the heater. On the hotel website, it says they have free internet access, which they did not. The street noise outside at night was horrible.

    Great little Hotel


    Great little place in a very convenient neighborhood in Rome. Near the Coliseum, just a couple blocks from the Cavour subway station, which is one stop away from Termini, the main Rome train station.
