Our first day in Rome saw us a little shell-shocked by all the people the pace of a large city.
We quickly recovered, however, and got our bearings. We first checked into our lovely hotel, the Relais 6 (complete with our own private terrace!) and headed toward the most popular spots in Rome: Trevi Fountain, The Spanish Steps,
... because we got to go into a museum and look at all the ancient statues and slates from long long long ago.

TravelPod Member ReviewsRelais 6 Rome
Really beautiful hotel on a quiet street. Staff were excellent, very helpful and friendly with great english. 10 mins on the bus into the centre of Rome, and only 5-10 mins walk to a few restaurants in the evening. Very nice lounge/bar with free nibbles and a yummy breakfast!
