... lunch, we decided to visit the Castle of St Angelo which is just down the road from our hotel. We rented a couple of headsets and wandered through the castle listening to the history and commentary as we went. We got back to the hotel just in time for a quick shower before our welcome reception meeting and dinner with the rest of the tour group.
In our group of 39, there are about 50% Americans, 40% Aussies and 10% Kiwis. Apart from two 30 something's ...
Writing on the flight to Dublin, some random observations. : *We saw more nuns this week than we have in the past 20 years. *Lots of motor bikes here too, but they don't drive on the sidewalk. *Lanes on the roads appear to be suggestions at best. *More tiny cups of coffee. *Every accordion player knows the love theme from "The Godfather."

... own love has grown and deepened over the years, good fortune at being a product of and witness to it, sadness that my own love, which I took to be for a lifetime, didn't stand the same chance, guilt at being the cause of their separation on this occasion, but mostly I just laughed my head off at Gabrielle's on screen antics - she is hilarious - I wish I'd recorded the call to share with you all!

Francesco, our singing and entertaining rickshaw driver, had told us of a famous ice creamery in the area, but we couldn't find it :(
The quest goes on..
Off for a short visit to the Vatican today as we decided we just couldn't miss the Sistine Chapel before heading off to Florence around lunch time.
Rome, Day 2: We (or I) held eye contact with "the girl in the green pants" for at least six seconds while walking near the Piazza di Spagna. We then looked back at each other with a smile and head nod, but nothing was done. Later, while eating lunch al fresco, we continually eyed down a group of gorgeous Italian girls dining near us. This was when we made the executive decision that Italian girls know how to make short hair HOT! Again, nothing was done.
Another good moment: ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiume Hotel Rome
We stayed at the Fiume last week 18 Sept. Good hotel but bar prices were high. But could not fault service or facilities. Room was very nice with 'real furniture', not made of melamine.
Brilliant little hotel
Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in August and we loved it! It was close to the sights, and even though the public transport was brilliant you could have a nice 20 minute walk to the Termi station! We used the Castero Petrio metro alot and found it quite easy to get you around!
The colosem and Trevi fountians are a definate must - but be aware of the sellers trying to give all the ladies roses!!!!
Hotel staff very helpful at giving information and the breakfast was def above what we were expecting, sets you up for the day!!!
All in all, if your not bothered about a luxury hotel but want a nice pleasent hotel - the Hotel Fiume is an excellent choice!
Out of the bustling city
Well presented small hotel located in the Lazio region of Rome. As a base for daily escapades into the city it was brilliant, Metro (underground) approximately 500 metres. Breakfast was of the continental style, plenty of choice and well presented. Hotel reception staff were courteous and helpful. Good shopping, brilliant restaurants (Il Piccolo) and local market all nearby.
Nice budget hotel - real value for Rome
It is a very nice and well run hotel close to main rome's attractions - rooms have all amenities and breakfast was very good . The very elegant and true roman area is one of rome's best with great shops , retaurants and beautiful public gardens (try restaurant "BEEF" in Via Basento) and it is not a place with lots of tourists . The front desk folks were very nice and helpful . Highly recommended if on a 100 euros budget line for a DBL in the centre of Rome !
Nice hotel, not so good location
We stayed at the Hotel Fiume for 3 nights in February 2005.
The hotel itself is very good value, staff friendly, rooms clean and tidy and a good selection of food for breakfast. We encountered a bit of trouble with the toilet plumbing but that was not really a major issue.
The hotel is a bit out of the way of the main areas and with it raining for most of our visit, we ended up paying for taxis from Piazza Barbarini though on a good day didnt mind walking so much.
Really nice Hotel
I have recently stayed at Hotel Fiume in February 2005, I was a bit apprehensive as to where to stay as there is soooo many to choose and reading travellers reviews it made it even harder..
Hotel Fiume was slightly out of the main centre but it is approx 20 mins on foot from Termini (slow walk). I found it to be in an okay location, nice 'local' restaurant around the corner, staff were great, room was a fair size and nice and clean. Breakfast is buffet and the breakfast man was really friendly, always replenishing the food even with only 10-15mins before breakfast ended. Would have no hesitation in recommending it and would definately stay at the Hotel Fiume again.
Not bad for the money......
Stayed at the Fiume Hotel in March 2004 for 4 nights. It is a fairly nice hotel although a little bit tired and in need of modernisation. The staff were very nice and the breakfast was decent. The hotel is located in a fairly quiet area of the city which is good, but it is still only about a 20 minute walk to the central sights. Also, there are a lot of decent restaurants just around the corner as well as some good shops. For anyone who likes cats, visit the Cat Sanctuary at Argentina Square, which in itself has several remains of temples, and was apparently the site where Julius Caesar was stabbed!
Our stay in Rome
We have just returned from a visit to Rome and stayed at the Hotel Fiume which we thoroughly ejoyed. The hotel is situated a few hundred yards from the Piazza Fiume, where there are plenty of good pizzerias and trattorias nearby. Buses to all the major sights leave from the Piazza Pia which is next to Piazza Fiume. The hotel is spotlessly clean, staff are very helpful and friendly. There is a lounge and small bar which is opened until midnight. There is a good variety of food for breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Rome.
