I put Philip, Trish and Rex on the spot tonight and asked them for their top three favourite memories of the trip so far. Predictably Trish's number one was walking the walls in Dubrovnik! Philip’s was visiting Tunisia, and Rex’s was riding the four wheel motorbikes all over Santorini. They told me it wasn’t a fair question, …
Rome is awesome! Everywhere you look, things are hundreds or thousands of years old. Today we did mostly ancient Rome, the Colosseum, the Forum Roma, the Pantheon, Trevi and Navona Piazzas. The weather was very nice in that it did not rain. Last night it poured and it rained a little before we left for dinner but during the day it just stayed …
... street (Via Giustiniani, where the supermarket was) to a little shop and try some. Abby got Nutella, Cass got Bounty, Shari had wildberry and I had a cheesecake one - all amazing! As we left the gelato shop, we kept walking to the east to go around to our apartment from the opposite direction, and we stumbled into the Piazza della Rotunda - the plaza outside the Pantheon. We had no idea the Pantheon was so close to where we are staying - ...
... Cathedral, it's a lovely church with very high arched ceiling and wonderful stained glass windows. As we went home we grabbed fruit and bread on the way. After regaining our strength we went back to the square that we had coffee this morning and had tapes for tea, garlic potatoes, freshly cooked asparagus, meat balls and red and green peppers, it was great the only problem is the waitress cleared the table before we were finished, you have to be ...
... t know what any men thought but it didn't matter to us. It then came over with a big electrical storm. Thank goodness as it was quite humid but it cooled the air temp down quite a bit. We were told 36 degrees and high humidity. Well back into the coach and off to Rome. Lynda our tour guide, explained what we could expect ( as she has done each day). The traffic was my biggest concern, she told us to show no fear, the drivers sense your fear and you will never get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Apollo Hotel Rome
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Apollo for 4 nights. We wanted a reasonably priced, clean hotel close to the sights of Rome and Hotel Apollo met all of those requirements!
Good place to stay
I stayed here in May 2004. The hotel was in a very good location for visiting the sites of Rome. About 5 minutes walk to the colosseum, 10 minutes to the Trevi Fountain and 15 minutes to the Spanish steps. It was also close to the bus route along Via Nationale which goes to the Vatican and the railway station. The hotel was clean and fine, except the bed linen and towels were very old and worn. The continental breakfast was very good. It seemed expensive for what it was, but then all Rome hotels are expensive! I would stay here again, but would look at alternatives first.
Going on a city break alone for the first time, i wanted to make sure i chose somewhere clean, safe and central. This hotel was perfect! Having stayed at Hotel Apollo for 4 nights this August, i thoroughly agree with all the previous reviews - this hotel is excellent! The room was spotless, with lovely (and good-sized) bathroom. It was quiet and the air-con coped with the hot august weather well. Towels and hairdryer are provided and the minibar is reasonably-priced. Staff are lovely and happily wait while you search through the phrasebook for the appropriate italian! (They also mind your luggage after check-out if you ask). The best feature is the breakfast roof terrace. There could be no better start to a day! On top of everything, this hotel is less than 10mins walk to the Colosseum and once you find your way round Rome, you realise its not much further to most of the other main sights and shopping streets. I was quite comfortable walking round the streets nearby alone and there are plenty of shops/restaurants within v easy walking-distance. If you have loads of luggage, there is a bus from Termini station to the top of Via dei Serpenti where this hotel is.
Hotel Apollo rooftop
Spent 4 days at the Hotel Apollo in Rome May 7-10, 2004, and loved it. Paolo and his staff (many of whom are family) were pleasant, and didn't laugh too much at my efforts to speak Italian. The beds were very comfortable, and we were within walking distance of everything, although we did take a taxi to the Vatican. But my fondest memory is of breakfast on the roof, which is fitted out like a fine dining room. The open air area of the roof is surrounded with flowers. I would definitely stay there again.
Central, Clean and Quiet
The Hotel Apollo is a gem in the heart of Rome. The recently renovated rooms are spacious (by European standards) and clean. The breakfast terrace on the roof is cozy and the perfect start to a day wandering around Rome. The colosseum is visible at the end of the street, but not from anywhere in the hotel. Apparently a family run hotel, the family lives on-site and is very gracious. Due to solid windows and walls, there is very little outside noise. However, interior noise was a problem as it travels up the marbled central staircase. We can't wait to go back and explore more of Rome from the Hotel Apollo.
