Our friend and neighbor, Ted, knocked on the door about 7:00 AM on August 1...although we weren't scheduled for "pick up" till 7:30. Another neighbor was having a medical issue, so off we all went to assist her. Once that was under control, we packed the car and rode the rush hour traffic to LAX, Our check-in was smooth, Emma had lunch for …
Breakfast is a hit....chocolate cocoa puffs and meats for Emma while George and I almost felt normal. Em was up the earliest at 5:30 Roman time, George and I to follow after a pretty good night's sleep. Then we cabbed it over to the Arch of Constantine where we met our guide for the day, Lucianna. A blue, blue sky, soft breezes but a blazing sun …
... only a small part of it was covered in scaffolding. We walked right round the building. I suggested we go right and Mum suggested we go left to try and find the entrance. We went left and when we finally found it, it was only a couple meters away from where we were before. Mum felt silly. We decided to do a guided tour and got our tickets and headed into the coliseum. It is amazing that the built it in only eight years. The tour was really interesting - they ...
... waited, and it was worth the wait, the pizza was pretty good! even though we didn't get to eat it until 9:30.
We all had a quiet night, I few of us stayed up in the bar market for a while because that was the only area we could get wifi, was keen to see what had been going on in little old NZ, but because everyone was trying to get on at the same time the Wifi was reeeeeeeeally slow, so at about 10 I called it in and went to bed, probably my first decent sleep of the tour! ...
... relaxing in the less tourist areas. Although Rome is a beautiful and historic city, I would never travel there again during the Summer. I became so fed up with people trying to sell us heaps of ****, more specifically the Indian men that stand on the footpaths about five metres apart, all throwing the same sticky balls at the ground that make the most annoying noise possible. These men were found on the footpaths of every Main Street within Italy.

Historical Traveler Reviews Visconti Palace Rome
Visconit Palace - Excellent Value
Good value, away from the centre over River but only 10 mins from Spanish Steps and 15 from the Vatican which is good for an early start to be near the front of the queue.
Reception nicely done, toilets immaculate. Bar staff typically Italian but you are in Rome!! -
Rooms good size, clean but not much of a view.
Would stay here again - good experience.
We stayed at this hotel last week. It was not the most attractive building from the outside but very well decorated on the inside.
My wife and I stayed at the Visconti 24-27th Feb 2005 after reading many, many reviews of other hotels in Rome. It looked like the best deal and after paying around £75 per room per night (inc breakfast) we were not disappointed.
Modern and Clean
Hotel was modern and clean, and within walking distance, although a long walk, from most tourist points. Several nice restaurants in area. Beds comfortable, rooms large. Only complaint was staff was a bit "uppity".
The Visconti Palace was very nice and very clean. The Staff was another thing. They were rude,and if you didn't speak Italian,they were not very helpful. We liked to sit in the courtyard in the evening, and the bartender never asked if we wanted anything, or acknowledged we were even there. You would have to go inside and order, and he acted as if he was doing you a favor. It was a nice hotel, even though we didn'feel very welcome.Would not stay there again.
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in September 2004 and found it to be a very nice (swanky) place. You get what you pay for at Visconti Palace. We paid a lot of money to stay there, and felt like we were surrounded by the upper class tourist. The hotel is beautiful and very modern. The staff was a bit cold in personality, but were willing to help you if you needed it. The location is close to the Vatican & a close walk to Piazza Navona (which is the neatest square to visit in Rome, full of artists, musicians & restaurants). We always felt safe, and the street was quiet, so we weren't bothered by any noise. The breakfast is included, and found it to be the typical European breakfast of breads, meats & cheeses. They do make a great espresso though! I think that you could get a great place for half the price, but if you want to splurge a little, then check this place out!
We wanted a hotel that was affordable yet in a good location. This fitted the bill exactly. Very handy location and we always walked to the sites directly from our hotel. It is right by the river so a walk along the banks every day was superb.
I reserved two rooms at the Visconti Palace Hotel in June 2001 for myself, husband, and son in a triple room while my parents were in a double room.
Great place ... highly recommended
I took a 2-week vacation to Italy and visiting multiple cities staying at various hotels. Of the 5 that I stayed at, Visconti Palace was the best of them all.
Although the room might be a bit small, however most of the hotel rooms in Italy are of similar size. The hotel interior is modernly decorated so are the rooms. They are new, clean and well equipped. The front desk is helpful and the included breakfast offers varieties of food. The waiters are friendly and attentive to your needs.
Overall, it provided us a comfortable stay and I would recommend it to anyone who might be visiting Rome.
I stayed at the Visconti Palace four nights back in '98. It is truly a 4star hotel with a very good breakfast and excellent concierges. The location was the best being walking distance from St. Peter's Square and Castelo Sant Angelo. At the same time it was on a side street out of the hustle and bustle allowing for quite and rest. We took daily tours (recommended by the concierge) with Carrani Tours. These were inexpensive, although very general. Great for newcomers that don't won't have a lot of time in Rome (it is a big city!!!)
