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 …
... our minds blown we decided to keep pressing on even though the Colosseum was going to be hard to beat.
After visiting all the “really big ticket” items we decided to press on to the “slightly smaller but still big ticket” items. We went through, and to all the must sees in this category. We even went to the Trevi Fountain and tossed the coin over our heads into the turquoise water. After enquiring why you actually have to throw your money in, I ...
... knowledge. We also learn, much to our dismay, that they are selling the apartment we are now renting. They are in the process of simplifying their life and making more time to spend with children and grandchildren. So it seems we'll need to find a new place to stay when we next return! We complete our evening at a local gelateria, then head back home to prepare for tomorrow and enjoy yet another late night view of the ...
... Thanks again Fabio for a great day!
Thursday was a busy day as it was our last day in Rome, and we planned to visit all the remaining places that were closed the previous days. We started with the Colosseum, which was an interesting place to see, as it once was the sight of horrific public spectacles. Robyn visited the Vatican Museum and got to experience the Sistine Chapel. We ...

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!!!)
