... us on a walking tour of parts of Rome. Since we will be returning various times as a class, we only saw a few things today on our walk. We went to a large piazza where there was a huge obelisk that was erected at the orders of Pope Sextus V. Right in the piazza were 3 large churches. We visited one of them where we saw two paintings: the martyrdom of St. Peter and the conversion of Saul. Both paintings were incredible and held a lot of significance since the campus here ...
... the whole thing struck me as a bit of a cash chase. Some would argue that that's been the Catholic church's game for centuries in one form or another.
The Vatican took up most of the day but afterwards we enjoyed a pleasant walk along the Tiber in the afternoon sun. It's a good feeling to be in Rome! I think the temperate got up to about 12/13 degrees today which was a welcome change from what we've been used ...
... book (good book too by the way). Our last stop was to the Spanish Steps. The journey up the steps was a quick and fun one. The view from the to was amazing. looking down to where I started made me feel good. but it was short lived, because it was at the top where I met one of the biggest annoyances on the trip, rose salesman. If you ever go to Italy, keep an eye out for these guys, they will give you flowers and make you ...
... was deemed their ticket. The more wealthy you were, the better the seat. They would enter through different arch ways, or sections, dependant on where their seats were. The wealthy men had the better seats where woman and slaves would have their own sections, not as well situated. The structure is extremely large and is hard to believe it's size.
We then headed home after grabbing a sandwich and are now settling into bed.

Historical Traveler Reviews Piemonte Hotel Rome
Hotel Piemonte is a spotless, modern hotel. It has a homely atmosphere, probably due to its size. Giovanni, one of the guys on the desk, is a legend! He is so helpful with directions, sites to see, places not to go to. His favourite phrase is "excellent best". What a legend!
Excellent choice. We choose to pay 100euros for a rather small room (but quite nice).
(but we were offered a bigger room for 120euros).
Near main train-metro Station Termini
Variaty of taverns around the hotel
Renovated, Very clean and quite
The old guy at the reception very helpful
A litlle off city center by foot.
Fantastic! We loved it!
We really liked staying here! There was the most amazing older Italian gentleman on the front desk when we arrived who was so helpful and friendly and wrote us little notes and recommendations which really made our stay here very special! The rooms were VERY clean and tidy!!! Spotless I would say! Our room was small but we didn't care as it was only somewhere to rest our heads and the fact that it was clean and we felt safe there was all we were looking for! This was a better hotel than some of the 4 star hotels we stayed at in Italy and it was so reasonable!!! There is a great Pizza, Pasta resutrant just minutes away too! Very happy and this hotel comes highly recommended!
I have just returned from a 3 day trip to Rome staying at Hotel Piemonte and have to say it is an ideally placed hotel near Termini Station so not far to walk for the airport bus!
The rooms were clean and perfectly adequate, the hotel staff were really friendly and especially the person on at night-time was helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit
I would go back there if I went to Rome again and would recommend it
We have recently returned from a 3 day break in Rome. The Hotel Piemonte was very attractive from the outside and our rooms were extremely clean and spacious, lovely bathroom, considering the rooms were not pricey ! Maid cleaned rooms every day! Although our two friends had a much larger room on the first floor, but we were not fussed as it was just the two of us. Reception were friendly and accomodating and spoke good english. Location was very good as we were away from the hustle and bustle of Rome yet we were close to Termini Station. Therefore we could access all routes to local attractions. Breakfast was also very nice in quiet dining area. All in all a fab stay and would definitely recommend the Piemonte
The staffs are extremely helpful and friendly. The room is big and lovely and their breakfast are good. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station. We will definitely recommend our friends to stay there when they visit rome.
