... Tourists mingling with vendors and street performers of all types as well as beautiful fountains with amazing sculptures. We splurged on some gelato and sat on the steps of the museum and enjoyed our people watching. We then headed off to find the Pantheon nearby. It is such an impressive and historic structure. When you walk into the building under the dome its almost a magical experience. It was crowded, but we were able to navigate through the ...
This morning marked my 4th day in Rome and my first day without any orientation for school woohoo! I have been eating SO much great pizza and pasta and to-go boxes are non existent so I mean a lot of food. Last night and today reinforced the fact that knowing a little Italian would have gone a long way during my semester abroad. Luckily I can use my Spanish as a cushion to understand things but I can't speak at all. I'm working on trying to get into an Italian ...
... used the art form of tenebrism. Tenebrism is the style of painting that uses darkness, light sources, and shadows to portray a scene.
Friday was pretty much a lazy day. For dinner on Fridays we have V.I.P. (very Italian pizza), and a special guest. This Friday we had pizza and watched the Human Experience. It was a very touching documentary that really got me thinking about my family. One part was about a lady with ...
... car to the top and then walk more up the hill through the cute village until we got to the top where there was this massive church which was built because one day a man was passing through and he had lost his faith and didn't understand how the bread was the body christ and the wine was the blood of christ. Then one day when we was in church the bread started bleeding and into the napkin. From then on his faith was restored and he built the church ...
... later that day so closing earlier than usual. Hundreds packed in and lots of pushing and shoving plus very noisy. But not policing no photos policy. Had to go back to see some of the other galleries in museum. Amazing ceilings everywhere. Then on to St Peters Basilica with just enough time to have looked around before it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Saint Paul Hotel Rome
Great short stay at the Hotel Saint Paul
We have just returned from a short break at the Hotel St Paul in Rome. the staff and welcome was reassuring and caring. The location although not in the centre of Rome was very easy for travel by the Metro to any areas of Rome. The breakfasts were wholesome and filling, recommendations for restaurants from the hotel staff for evening meals were very good. The rooms were clean and decorated to a good standard. It was the staff though who made the stay in the Hotel St Paul such a success, and we thank them for making our short break so great.
To start with if you are not from Rome, as i am and you haven't got your own trasport you are stuck in what can only be described as one of the most unpleasant and unattractive area of rome poorly linked to town. the hotel itself is a typical palazzo or palazzina just renovated or still under renovation as it was the case, scaffolding were adorning the outside of the building and plenty more was going on inside. We were there at the beginning of a rather cold February for bussines and the only reason the hotel was chosen was for the convenience of the location.Big mistake !! ..Although to be fair the staff were extremely pleasant ,friendly and helpfull the hotel itself was a big disappointment .
What can I say? The rooms were comfortable, spacious and well furnished with well stocked minibars. The bathrooms were extremely well decorated with plenty of complimentary toiletries and there were more than ample towels, pillows, sheets and blankets. We had a room with a balcony and although it overlooked the road we didn't hear much traffic noise.
We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2005. Our first problem was that it took us about an hour to find this place from the 'nearest' tube - near being about 15 minutes walk as the maps provided were not very clear.
Just got back from 7 nights at this hotel and I cannot really think of anything bad to say.
My wife, mother, son & I stayed at the Hotel Saint Paul for 3 nights around the middle of November 2004.
