We really lucked out on our hotel room. We had a private balcony and a separate huge whirlpool bath which also opened onto the balcony. The location of this hotel is great central to historic Rome. The breakfast was the typical Italian breakfast, but the breakfast location was on the top floor of the hotel with a lovely view of the surroundings.

Following dinner, we only had to walk up one flight of stairs to our room and a good night's sleep before having to wake up at 6;00 ...
What got me the most I think is that our guide said this particular convent was unusual as it had women who had come from all over the world. Some of the women were not religious before working high powered executive roles however they got the calling and that was it. I couldn't imagine going from a life full of so much power to choosing something submissive where they have no control. Some had husbands and left them to join the convent in Assisi.
