... built in honour of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy. Outside the complex, many people dressed in roman and gladiator costume stands waiting for people who would like to take a photograph with them for a small tip. Romain saw a young boy threw rubbish in the grass compound and the "gladiator" told him off and made him pick up his trash. It's a funny thought; gladiator asking people to pick up trash. It's a long stretch from there to Colosseum passing ...
... the massive scope of Piazza San Pietro – the sheer size of the plaza, the immense basilica, the obelisk, the Bernini fountain, and the massive colonnades – four columns deep and circling the majority of the plaza. Everything is so huge!
We walked around the outside walls of Vatican City to the Vatican Museum ticket office. We were pleasantly surprised to find out there was almost no line (we had read that the lines ...
... you have ever seen, to say it is Spectacular is an under statement. The Church has two Facade one called the PASSION which faces west to the setting sun, it depicts the death and resurrection of Jesus. It tells the story through Sculpture telling the story. The east side of the Church were the sun rises, is the NATIVITY Facade it expresses the joy of all creation at the birth of Jesus and recounts the main events in the lives of the Holy Family of Nazareth.

... in the middle of the city-- we are literally 300 meters from the Pantheon!
We spent the day, once we had the energy, walking around and hitting some of the big tourist destinations, which were fabulous.
The city seems so surreal. Buildings thousands of years old are standing bravely next to smooth new architecture. Everything is so jumbled but looks beautiful together in the Italian sun. ...
... I got to the coliseum in a matter of minutes. Boy was that place busy as could be. I know I was at one of the most miraculous sites in the world but all I could think was, "wow I am hungry." I skipped out on breakfast that morning to try and get most time in the city.
I explored the coliseum for a couple hours. It is amazing to look at that structure and just imagine all the history that has taken place there. ...

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
