We stayed at this hotel as we had a car and needed parking space, and were not keen to drive into the city of Rome. The hotel has great amenities, including the great coffee that can be purchased from the bar in the lobby. We found everything we needed, including a supermarket close by. The district is a fair way out of town, and on approach doesn't look the best, but give it a go, you will be pleasantly surprised. We were very pleased with the GP, and the breakfast buffet was pretty good too.

... out - just in case we needed to call and find Catia. As i pulled the phone out, I got a call from Catia's son; telling me his mother is on the square looking for us. I got no more than 2 steps and up walks Catia, arms outstretched greeting me with a BIG warm hug. I was delighted! She is BEAUTIFUL! Her husband is quite handsome, and truly a mans man. I can't believe I've forgotten his name. Shame on me!

... is huge - bigger than St Peter's. Here we also saw the tomb of Rapheal. Another stop on the way home was the quirky Largo di Torne Argentina - some random Roman Ruins home to hundreds of stray cats. All were fat and happy though - cared for really well by volunteers.
Dinner that night was at a cute little restaurant with awesome pasta and tiramasu. A great way to finish our time in Rome.
The next day we took the train to Siena, through some gorgeous ...
