Visiting the National Museum that evening, we saw exquisite ancient Roman art, the "greatest collection of Roman art anywhere in the world". Going to a museum on a drizzly evening is a great way to end the day. I've shown here just a couple of examples of what we saw.
One item was a carved sarcophagus with well preserved details. We were drawn up close to inspect every character in the ...
... an hour and a half's drive from Bergerac through the Dordogne Area to a Village called Salat ( it is one of the best preserved 14th century villages in France ). The directions we were given were extremely well written and very clear, so it was quite easy for us to follow. The country side is lovely and for a great deal of the trip we are driving along the Dordogne River, we did very well and found our selves in Salat. We felt like we ...

ROMA DAY 1
Following a much needed nap, we quickly put ourselves together and ventured out into this magical city! What a splendid day! I am having so much fun, and by fun I mean watching Keith's mouth open when he witnesses such beautiful monuments and architecture - a few others things too I might add! Him and Billy are experiencing the same feelings as I did when I first visited Roma with my wonderful ...
... eating alone that is just plain depressing. Meals are meant to be shared and used as a time to connect with others. When you are all by yourself you catch are sideways glances from people wondering why you are alone and gain the feeling that you just want to eat and be done so that things wont feel so odd. Eventually I did leave, walking all the way back across town to try and find a dessert place that I looked up on the internet. Turns out, it ...
Today was one of those days. I had to be up at 4 am so that I could catch my taxi in time to make it to the airport. My hotel was supposed to have a shuttle bus, but I had to be there too early, luckily they gave me a flat rate which wasn't so bad t get to the airport.
I love the Brussels airport, not only was it decorated in Christmas lights, it was clean AND they were playing Edith Piaf! Brussels is mainly a French speaking city, so I guess it makes sense ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barberini Hotel Rome
Great location and great service. Beautiful view from the bar at the top terraze. Stayed there last July when the heat wave was at full force, and it was nice to stay at a hotel where you could cool off as soon as you came in. Good rate by italian standards.
Location enabled us to have good access to Via Veneto. My luggage didn't make it on arrival to Rome, and the desk person was very helpful with phone calls and communication with Air France. We just went out to see the sights, and he took and made calls on my behalf. He was very helpful. The hotel is quite expensive, but nice for a first night.
In general, I have to say thumbs up to the Barberini hotel. The staff, in general, was friendly and efficient. The room was small, but well decorated and large enough to be functional for 2. As mentioned previously, the breakfast was held in the basement, but you could go to the roof for drinks in the evening or to just enjoy to nice view of Rome at sunset. The air conditioning was functional, but as Ive found in a number of other European hotels, would not cool much below 23 C (software limited I think). Manageable, but a bit warm if you are used to sleeping in a cool room.The location was decent. It was close to the Barberini subway stop, within close walking distance to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, and reasonably close to the Pantheon and ruins. In all honesty, Id probably look for something a bit more central to those locations if I returned, but I think it would be difficult for the price and quality of the room.
Terrific and a pretty good value
Nice hotel in a perfect location and a quiet rooftop bar with a view.
We got a decent rate (by Rome standards) of about 250 euros a night, and I can't imagine the more expensive hotels being much better. Room was small, but aren't they all? Our room faced the street on the 2nd floor and was as quiet as could be. Impressive.
Exceptional service, lovely hotel
Staff was very friendly especially the breakfast crew which started our 3 days on a good note. Shower was a bit small but everything was relatively new-marble bathroom. Couldn't ask for a better location!
Clean But Small Rooms
We arrived at the hotel at 11PM and were surprised that there was only one receptionist who couldn't help us with our bags (NO PORTER). Our room was very clean and the bathroom was nice, but the room was extremely SMALL. Although the location is not far from the city center, it is far from ideal.
My family and I recently stayed at the Hotel Barberini. We spent several days there and it was the best of all the 4 star hotels we stayed in Italy. The hotel was very clean with modern updated facilities and a very friendly helpful staff. It's location was great, with an easy walk to the subway and all of the major important sites. I am a particular about where I stay and I have no problems recommending this hotel.
The Barberini is a nice clean hotel smack in the middle of everything.
We walked everywhere, even to St Peter's, but that was a bit far.
Colloseum, Trevi, Pantheon, all easy walking distance. Also next to Barberini underground station. Shops very close by, with lots of restaurants just round the corner. The hotel offers good accomodation for a modest price. recommended. (No I don't have shares in them!) Enjoy..............................
Hot, hot, hot
Just came back and wanted issue immediate WARNING! If you are planning a trip here in the summer, don't go to Hotel Barberini! Little to no air-conditioning with false promises. Beds are like concrete. The hotel looks beautiful with moldings, beautiful fabrics, etc. but you can't sleep under these conditions. Rooms tiny! bathrooms good size. Location could be better. Even though Piazza Barberini is central, no one hangs out there. You're better off staying closer to Piazza Navonna or Spanish Steps. Everytime our family had to walk home it was up hill.
Because the manage knew the air would not get better and told us it would I wouldn't trust this hotel at anytime of the year .
Nice Location, Nice Place
Very nice hotel smack dab in the center of rome. Really great location to be close to everything. Spanish Steps 10 min. walkColuseum 20 min walkVia Vento 5 min. walkTrevi Fountain 8 min. walkVatacan 20 min. walkRooms were average size, bathrooms were large by Italy standards and modern. Bed was comfortable. The hotel is not on a main street, but there is a little street noise though, shut the windows and the noise all goes away. Walls between the rooms are soundproof. Breakfast was real nice, assortment of meats, cheeses, cereals, breads & pasteries. For extra $$$ you can order off the menu. We felt no need too. The front desk was super helpful, always had maps available, directions, recommedations. Very Friendly staff. I would stay here again in a heartbeat
