Day 2 Rome
Our first sight to see was Circus Maximus and Caesars Palace atop the Palentine Hill one of the 7 hills of Rome, looking out on the 600m course where Ben Hur raced his chariots.
Of course if chariot racing is not your thing, then just around the corner sits the Colosseum if you'd rather catch some gladiator action. We …
Day 1 of our 13 day "Best of Italy" Trafalgar tour
Our tour didn't officially start until 5.30pm with welcome drinks and introductions so after a leisurely late breakfast we made an appearance on the cobbled rickety streets of Rome to take a look around at our own pace. We knew that according to Pino the all knowing taxi driver that there …
1st day in Rome. What an interesting trip to get here! Our flight out of Heathrow was delayed by 2 hours due to a general strike in Italy. No baggage handlers, no ground crew, no nothing. So, when we finally landed, it was to further delays, because the poor loves had only just got back to work and they had a bit of catching up to do! But we …
... River. After a brief nap in a lovely little park (Piazza B. Cairoli), we crossed the Ponte Garabaldi, with the light streaming onto Ponte Cestio and Ponte Palatino, as the sun began to set. We stopped by St. Cecilia's before heading over to Piazza des Maria in Trastevere. Known for its nightlife, Trastevere lived up to its reputation as the place to go on a Saturday night. We finished our evening here, watching people in cafes and taking their evening ...
... where they have bareback horse races twice a year (quite a big thing). We walked up to the cathedral, which was very different to the ones in Rome, with lots of statues on the outside walls (we didn't go in). On our way back to meet our group we shared a strawberry gelato and it was so delicious - better than any we tasted in Rome! Now we are on our way to Florence! This evening we got in to Florence at about 7:30 and had a quiet night, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Milton Roma Rome
Many of the points that I wanted to make have already been made by previous travelers. Milton Roma is relatively new, but very clean, with a professional staff that speaks english, a great breakfast buffet, and only a 5 minute walk from the nearest open Metro stop. With regard to some of the rumblings about the hotel still being under construction, I can tell you that much of it has been completed, although there is still some minor work being done - none of it really got in the way of our very enjoyable stay.
Nice all together at the Milton Roma
Very nice stay at the Milton Roma, superb location and quality service

will certanley go back again
We stayed at the Milton hotel with our 20 month old daughter on a 5 day holiday in Rome. Having stayed in a number of hotels around the world the Milton hotel is a good value, city centre hotel in the making...
This is an excellent hotel for a number of reasons. Most importantly is its location. It is close enough to the "tourist" spots that you can walk to them, and close enough to both A and B metro lines (although the Manzoni station is closed right now) that it is convenient in that way too. Most significantly, it is in a "normal" part of Rome, albeit one with many East Asian immigrants.
Stayed here for three days, lovely freindly staff, a great breakfast buffet and lovely clean rooms.
Me and my wife stayed in this hotel in mid May just a week ago for 4 nights.
My friend and I stayed at the Hotel Milton Roma for 6 nights in late-May 2006. Since the hotel just opened in April, we expectd some adjustments going on. Finishing touches were being applied to the outside of the hotel, but the lobby, bar area, breakfast room, and rooms were basically finished. The staff was unparrelled in every aspect. Each member of the staff was competent, courteous, imacculately dressed, extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and conversant in English. Although we did not have hot water one morning for showers, it was restored later in the day. It would have been more convenient if the metro stop Manzoni was open, but Line A is under construction for 2006 and another stop is closeby. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Hotel Milton is competively priced and I would recommend it.
We stayed 5 nights 2nd week in May 2006.
The Milton is at the corner of the two VERY busy streets of Via Emanuele Fillberto and Viale Manzoni. It is on Metro Line A - the closest station (Manzoni) on the opposite corner from the hotel is closed for the rest of 2006; the Vittorio Emanuele station is 4.5 blocks to the NW and the San Giovanni station is 5 blocks to the SW. The Coliseum is a 15 minute walk westward. We found the hotel location convenient to most of the sites we wanted to visit.
My wife and I stayed here in mid-April, 2006, and the hotel lobby was still unfinished, we stepped over air compressor hoses, fresh glue for faux wood floors, and dusty floors while entering and leaving the hotel. The Metro subway stop right outside the entry is closed until December 2006 as well, so expect to walk a half-mile to the nearest station...or better yet, take a cab to whereever you want...very affordable in Rome.
