... around the time of Caesar.
I am going back to Capitoline Hill where there is a museum with some amazing antiquities that I wish to see.
As the light faded we sat on the steps in the capitoline watching the sun dip in the sky and bounce light over the taller buildings around and above us. After sunet, there was a long dusk in which the light was so beautiful.
The next building from the ...
... customs checks, we headed for the assigned lounge. Apart from them serving a good Spritz, the hour and a half wait was unmemorable and we eventually filed on board with the other travellers.
So, our final "ciao ciao" as we board the plane out of Rome. Best wishes to everyone for the festive season and looking forward to catching up with you [well, the NZ connection at least] in the New Year.
Buon Natale [Merry Christmas]
... a sea of hard surfaces all absorbing or reflecting heat with a couple of fountains and a heap of tourist traps – my suggestion is avoid it.
I have been giving GG a crash course in architecture (at least from what I can remember!) and explained to him the subtleties of Doric, Ionian and Corinthian columns yesterday. Pediments threw him for a while – he thought the word related to “impediment” in some way, like a warning. It ...
... a very peaceful place, a respite from the traffic and bustle of the city. The grave of John Keats is found here, side by side with that of Joseph Severn, who was either his companion or lover, or both. Severn's tombstone describes him as "dedicated friend and deathbed companion of John Keats." Keats' stone doesn't actually have his name inscribed, but simply states "This grave contains all that was mortal of a young English poet." The cemetery sits next ...
... that it was a great party hostel, and that he and his friends would be going out that night if I'd like to join.
Relieved, I finished my computer business, went for a run along the rather uninspiring beach that was weirdly filled with hundreds of tiny little items that could have been little tables and a whole lot of play equipment, went back, showered, got ready, and then promptly realised there was noone around in the hostel - despite it being 'happy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Ottocento Rome
The Albergo Ottocento hotel was a great experience. Good location. Extremely helpful staff. Nice clean rooms.A bit on the small side but not a shoebox. Big bathroom with a jacuzzi tub which helped us to soak our sore feet in from all the walking. Would definitely stay there again.
A great place to stay
A lovely hideaway, good location but also quiet. Beautiful suite with patio. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Recommend this to anyone-will definitely stay there again
The Ottocento, well located on a quiet little street near the Barberini Metro station and within walking distance of the Spanish Steps and the Quirinale, is a lovely small hotel, with a very gracious and capable staff and clean, cozy, well appointed rooms with spacious modern bathrooms. I couldn't have been happier and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bus and Metro options were a plus also, making it very easy to get everywhere, from the Vatican Museums to the Colosseum.
Can't recommend it enough!
This hotel is by far the best I've ever stayed in.
The location is stunning, literally 1 minutes walk to Via Veneto, Rome's famous (and highly beautiful) tree lined street full of bars and restaurants - we didn't eat anywhere else at night during our 4 day trip.
Don't be put off by the hotels location down a small dusty side street - as soon as you're in the lobby - you'll know you've made the right choice. Rooms are very clean, spacious and deliously cool so you're able to escape the Rome humidity (and close enough to major sites and metro station to return to for a afternoon seista!).
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly - book your airport taxi with them - for a cleaner cheaper taxi!
A beatuiful, modern hotel which is clean, cool, relaxing and surprisingly quiet given its great location.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else on my return to Rome.
Very Nice Hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Ottocento for two nights in July. We really enjoyed it and the price could not be beat. The Rooms were newer it seemed and the bathrooms were large and really very nice. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone who was planning a trip to Rome. The staff was very helpful and nice. Great location.
