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.

Michelle and Mike’s wedding was a traditional ...
... we stop and get some coffee, we chat more and I realize how lucky I am to be spending the day with such a great group. At the first pit stop as we get back in the van I suggest a team name. People chuckle but it's met with little passion. I decide to still entertain myself trying to think of one but I'm distracted by Dale and Ellen's fitness level and my lack thereof lately. It's also way too early to use my brain.
After two hours on the road we finally begin to ...
