And onto Rome, where I'm staying overnight on my way to Prato. Got the train in from the airport and then used my phrase-book Italian to book a return train journey to Prato. That was an interesting experience, leading the man in the ticket box to produce a lot of Italian shrugs and some eye-rolling. Still, I have the tickets, or at least I hope I …
... do. I am invited to a lecture by the president of the Archaeological Institute of America on Tuesday night, to meet the Fulbright scholars for Italy at the American Academy in Rome on Wednesday, and then I get to show old high school friends of mine on vacation around the city. And if that isn't enough, I leave for Oslo, Norway, on Saturday to spend my own vacation in my fatherland.
... he had a power of the gods to visit the virgins without being seen, either a cloak of invisibility type thing or a ability to magically appear in their chambers. In reality however, the reason he was never seen on his nightly jaunts over there was that around seven years ago, archaeologists uncovered a secret passageway between his abode and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins. Now I pose this question: where did Julius Caesar die? If you answered on the steps of the senate house, you ...
... longer than the few hours we had!
Into the Sistine Chapel - where we were packed in like sardines. What can I say about the work of Michelangelo that has not been said before? Absolutely nothing I guess - it is magnificent.
Squeezed out of the Sistine Chapel and made our way to St. Peter’s Basilica. We did expect opulence - I don’t think we could have imagined quite the extent of it. The incredible display of the power and wealth of the Roman ...
... Pantheon. I ordered the baked eggplant with potatoes- sounds kind of plain, but no lie- probably the best meal I have ever tasted. The atmosphere, the language and listening to everyone communicate with each other was so beautiful. (I actually brought out my tape recorder and recorded the conversations!) Outstanding find!
It's amazing to walk around, hit a completely touristy, heavily trafficked area with lots of noise, and literally take ten ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Milani Hotel Rome
The hotel is located near the Termini Station which is well-located for metro, bus and intercity transport but is quite seedy, especially at night. The rooms of the hotel are clean, but the bed-side lamps did not work and it took a couple of days for the hotel staff to fix them. Breakfast was very ordinary, and not worth bothering with. Our main criticism was that one of the front desk staff was very rude and abrupt with us. Would look for something better if we were to return to Rome.
We stayed at the Milani in October 2005 and were satisfied with the standard of this hotel. We didn't want to pay too much, yet didn't want to be in a sub-standard hotel either. The Milani was great for this. The staff were friendly and took time to explain all things Roman, provided us with a map and directions etc.
The room was OK, small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was new and everything worked well.
Breakfast was OK, the scrambled eggs were hideous though with a faint tinge of green. One of the hotel staff hooked us up with a fantastic tour guide who gave us a private 4 hour tour of Rome which was much better than jumping on a bus with 30 other people.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to those who see a hotel as nothing more than a place to shower and sleep in comfort and cleanliness.
Down at heel......
We stayed at the Milani in September this year. Although three star, the hotel was not great. We had stayed there a few years ago and found it much better. It was grubby. The breakfast was awful. In a city which prides itself on its coffee, the version of the morning pick me up we got was nothing short of disgraceful. The juice was a watery concoction of who only knows what. It is a pity as the hotel staff are incredibly helpful and professional which is a plus.
Loved the Milani Hotel
We have been in the hotel at the first days of October 2005. The crew was very nice and freendly, the room was big and clean, free Internet access in the loby, very reach breakfast and the location is exellent near the Termini Station (we walked all over Rome by foot from the hotel. Highly recomended !
stayed in the milani for one week.it was our first time in italy & the staff helped make our stay a very plesent one.the room was clean and well equipped.the hotel is in a good location near the 'termeni' train & bus station.if there was a draw back it would be that if you arrive home late at night the area around the train station seems to be a meeting point for A LOT of homeless people.walking past these people as the camera packing tourist makes you rush home.over all can't fault the hotel.
Enjoyable stay at Hotel Milani
We stayed for 5 nights at Hotel Milani , which is only 4 mins walk from the Termini. We found the hotel spotlessly clean and really enjoyed our stay there. The staff had excellent english and were polite but not overly friendly, like a large number of Italians we met, especially those in the tourist offices. I had heard that around the Termini was unsafe, but we had absolutely no problems, you're on your guard really wherever you go on holidays. Being close to the Termini did have advantages in that it was very convienent when arriving and leaving Rome for the airport. We had dinner a few nights in a small restaurant which was 2 mins away from the Hotel on the left hand side. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent and good value for money.
Great Location clean and bright hotel
I have just stayed at the Milani and I have to say I was really pleased with it. It is very clean in my experience with lovely marble throughout, so cool in the high temperatures. Also, I could not find one thing to complain about regarding my breakfast. I think the location is great, right beside the termini, so convenient for getting round Rome by bus. I think you have to be careful EVERYWHERE at night now, regardless of the city, country or area you are in. I personally didn't feel nervous or see trouble at any stage so would not criticise the area at all. The staff were fine, polite and helpful. For the money we were very happy with it anyway.The hotel location was also handy to catch our train down to Sorrento - it was great not having to drag bags across the city. Top tip: there is an amazing little restaurant around the back of the hotel to the right...I had the best pizza of my life there!! It's like eating from someones home kitchen..really fabulous. So cheap too so top marks!
Stayed at Hotel Milani from 8-15 September. Lovely room - air con, tv... bathroom a little tired. Hotel staff were fluent in english, very polite however not overly friendly. Location was close to Stazione Termini however a long walk [or short metro trip] to most sights. Area near Termini can be a bit dodgy at night.
Two hotels in one. Make sure you're given the right side
When we arrived we were given the old part of the hotel -reception to the right-. It was old, dark, 1970s style, and the cleaning standards in room 104 were terrible - dust, telephone or door frames hadn't been dusted for ages. It wasn't worth the money we had paid at our travel agency. After complaining, we were given a room in the refurbished part of the hotel- reception to the left-. We found ourselves in a completely different world; a comfortable, new, clean, light, well decorated room which I can recommend anybody. The breakfast was ok, -very nice and friendly waiter-, although tables where other guests had had their breakfast before would need a more efficient cleaning.
