... fact was that Michelangelo actually painted himself being judged by Jesus (he is the limp flesh being lifted halfway up by one of the angels). We must be starting to appreciate art as we both really enjoyed pieces in surrounding rooms of the Vatican museums. St. Peter's church was...well- even though the other churches were huge, this was massive and much better than expected (and our expectations weren't low). When Christianity was embraced in 500AD they built the first St. ...
After breakfast the groups broke up and went of into Rome for different reasons. Mrs Murtagh went on gastronomic adventure and almost every body else went shopping. They all got some good products and had a good time... Myself and Aaron went on another day of history adventures...... We walked from the circus Maximus out through the walls of Rome and on to the Catacombs. We ...

It was a great book and even better now to be able to see what the book
talked about him doing. It was a fabulous exhibition and the black and white
photos were so powerful, especially as he photographed the day the American’s
forced Germany to surrender out of Sicily. Many of the landscape photo’s of stone farm houses destroyed
still look the same today and it ...
Rome, ahh Rome. To be remembered by us as the city of sweltering heat, huge crowds and delicious gelato! We arrived at our rented apartment in the heat of the afternoon. Thank goodness we had air conditioning! We cranked it on and took a siesta before venturing across the street to get dinner. Our place was a fifteen minute walk from the central train station and a ten minute walk to the Colliseum. The woman we rented ...
... s handy Italian word phrase book, Bryce asked three different times if it might be possible. And, at around 1:05, Camden and I were able to get tickets. We didn't think we'd get lucky with five tickets, and Daphne and Apollo is one of my favorites, so Bryce, Ethan, and Bryn hung out in the gardens and played ninja. Camden and I were both thrilled and amazed by Bernini's work. Apollo and Daphne was truly beyond description. No ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Petit Rome
We stayed there for four nights. It is cute and clean but if security is an issue then this hotel is not for you. We came home on two occasions to find the hotel completely open and the night porter asleep next to an empty bottle of wine. We couldn't wake him so we went behind the counter and helped ourselves to the keys. Another day the maid had left ours and another couples room open with all the bags for anyones taking. The phones were not working so we had to use the main phone in the lobby so privacy was a problem. Size.. our room was tiny, for the amount they charged a night it was overpriced, they didn't seem to care that we were so dissappointed.
Decent but noisy
This hotel was ok. The rooms were small but very clean, with a nice private bath. Most of the staff was very nice. My only complaint was the noise. Many of the rooms are on the front and you hear all the noise from the busy street at the corner. The noise usually lasts until about 1 am and then the trash truck comes by. This noise may be normal for any Rome hotel, but I can only judge this one. Also, the night shift hotel staff listens to the tv quite loudly and you can hear the tv's of neighboring rooms. Location is good. A decent place to stay if you're not a light sleeper.
Very cozy and crazy
its a very nice hotel, the room was very clean with the parquet for walking peace, and its was with a crazy colours.The room are like a 4-5 star hotel the building is fantastic, its completely white like the Wedding cake on Venezia square. we'll turn at Hotel Le Petit, sure!
Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Great location, clean room and adequate breakfast. We had the only room with a large balcony, and it was quiet and charming. The hotel staff was informative. On our last day, we checked out and they held our luggage until 8pm because we had a 10:40 overnight train to Venice. Only problems to mention are the air conditioning wasn't very strong and we left all our toiletries in shower and they didn't inform us when we returned at 8pm even though they only had 6 rooms rented and the same staff was working when we returned that night. Luckily, we had extras to last us the rest of the week!
Adored Le Petit
We stayed at Le Petit on three separate occasions during our month in Italy this summer, and we couldn't have picked a nicer place. My husband and I had a double, and when my daughter joined us, we had a triple. Both rooms were attractive, clean, and charming. The triple was on the corner and had a colonnaded terrace with table and chairs. The breakfast service was very good, with food and coffee served by a beautiful woman who looked like she's just stepped out of an Italian movie. With its proximity to the train station, the Metro, and all the sights, this place was a terrific place to stay. I would go back there in an instant!
Cozy, clean with a friendly staff
My husband and I stayed at Le Petit in September '02 and would highly recommend it. The staff is so friendly and helpful with recommendations of what to do and see. The rooms are small, but nicely decorated with clean, private baths. I thought breakfast was fine, great capuccino. Best of all, it is within walking distance of all the major sites, as well as Piazza della Repubblica and Termini Station, which makes it easy to catch a train to the next city!
Quiet, Clean, Reasonable
Le Petit occupies a single floor of a ~6 floor building with a tiny elevator. We found the service to be friendly, the rooms clean, and the prices reasonable. However, the breakfast could have been better. The location is convenient to Repubblica metro station, main bus lines, dining, and limited shopping.
Overall we would recommend Le Petit for those on a budget, but there may be better deals to be found (Hotel Aberdeen is a little more $$, but was quite a bit nicer)
