Travel Blogs from Rome
Having the luxury of a lie in really rejuvenated me for the rest of the day, and I was prepared for Rome! The train to Rome was perfect. I noticed numerous beautiful white birds, which I knew as little egrets. They appeared startled, as they flew from the cover of the reedbeds when our train loudly rushed past. We arrived there for five to four, …
... little restaurant. We got a caprese appetizer and both got a pasta dish and a beer. It was a great first meal and Nidhi made some more new friends with a young couple from Scotland, where college is fully paid for by the government. We grabbed a quick nap at the hotel before continuing on to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and many other beautiful, but lesser known sites. We were craving a good pizza so we decided to head back to Campo De' ...
... joke in there somewhere.
Next I checked out the piazza del Popolo. Very nice piazza close to a huge park. Killed some time in the park and grabbed a gelato (what else). Headed to the Vatican after that.
The line for the Vatican museum wasn't really that bad (props to Vito for tellin me to go at 2). The place was overly crowded ...
... from 12.30 to 4 pm. We've booked a table at our local restaurant to join them in their revelries later today, and also to indulge ourselves with local cuisine for the last time--the 15 course antipasti de la casa, then perhaps a primo of porcini mushrooms (they are the size of footballs), black truffles, salmon or boar Ragu pasta, and a secondi of the most tender veal,or perhaps the grilled fish, hmmmmgh. No doubt, a nap will be essential before we head off to a concert ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Marsala Rome
This is the second time I have stayed at Hotel Marsala! The location is fantastic! Only a five minute walk to Roma Termini- if that! The breakfast is also a highlight! However, it gets worse- the rooms have not been updated and they are poorly maintained! The shared bathroom is very poor- I struggled to fit in the shower- it was difficult to knee down to wash feet etc. I paid too much for what I was given! I don't recommend this Hotel- however if you are in Rome waiting for a train the next morning- then this Hotel will suit your needs!
