... so many important building such as the curia, roman senate, and the temple of julius ceasar. The Curia was the home to the Roman Senate and apparently the tenets of Roman law were first debated here. There was also an oratory platform in front of the curia. There was also the Temple of Saturn were the celebrations of Christmas originally came from. At this point it started pouring but we still trudged through. I have now been without an umbrella for 4 months and have learned that ...
... it. In the middle of the city there are all of these old ruins that you are able to walk through and check out. I'm not a museum guy, but I had to make an exception for the Louvre to see the Sistine Chapel, which was pretty unbelievable. Some of the other places that impressed me the most were Saint Peters Basilica, Trevi Fountain and this old castle that you could tour and which gave you a great view of the city. The most impressive thing for ...

Today we hired a guide "Branden, The Roman Guy" who is an American art history major living in Italy. He picked us up in a stretch golf cart and we toured Rome for the next three hours seeing the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain (of course we threw in our coins), Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo Dei Fiori, Piazza ...
We finally arrived in Roma. Wow, it was a long trip. We started off in Indianapolis with lunch at Harry & Izzy's and then with a flight to JFK that was only delayed 20 minutes. Not too bad. We had plenty of time in New York to grab a bite to eat before we caught our Virgin Atlantic flight to London. Everyone settled in quickly for this flight. There were plenty of entertainment options on the flight too. Soon we realized we ...
... tombs for the early Christian Romans who did not wish to be buried in cemeteries next to pagan Romans. These tombs are deep excavations through rock down to four or five levels. Our visit was to the main catacomb located on the famous Appian Way (which still exists) outside the old city walls of Rome. This was the burial site for over 250,000 Christians. After a rather exhausting day, we yet again staggered onto the bus for a noisy but fun group dinner. Slept very, very well that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza Ki Rome
3 days in November with my girlfriend in a beautiful B&b.
is located near all the most important monuments (4 minutes to fontana di trevi)with a good breakfast (fruit fresh, croissant and cheese and ham) in a quiet room(204).
All staff is kindly and will advise to my friends.
i hope to came back again.
We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Ki, it was a nice place to stay, however it did have it faults. We has to check in at another hotel and then when we finally came to the hotel we had to go up 2 flights of stairs with our luggage.
Great Vacation at Residenza Ki
My wife and I have just returned for a fabulous weekend in Rome.
After a serious search we decided to go to the Residenza Ki.
I am happy to say that the hotel was great for many reasons.
1. It's absolutely in the best location in Rome (5 min to Spanish
steps, Trevi fountain and metro station.
2. It is a small and very quiet hotel.
3. The staff is very professional and curdies. I would like to
mention Francesco who will help you in any way he can (He
speaks fluent English).
I would definitely go there again
Stayed at Ki for 3 nights in early November. Easy to find and only 3 minute walk from Barberini (2 stops from central Temini station) on Rome's excellent metro.
My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights in October 2006. It was astonishingly central and you could walk to all the main sites.....it was about 5 mins walk to the Trevi Fountain one way, and 5 mins to The Spanish Steps in another! Accordingly it was near to historical sites, culture, a range of restaurants and shopping.
My husband and I were fortunate to stay at Residenza Ki in Rome September 15-19, 2006. Rome was our first stop in a 2 week trip to Italy (first time) and I was very unsure about our accomodations being that Residenza Ki was not in any of the major guidebooks. What a blessing that turned out to be! The hotel is located in a convenient location near the Barbarini metro stop and close to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps (less than 10 minutes by foot). It is in a residential building and thus, unassuming and quiet. We were greeted by Francesco after a long flight from San Francisco. He spoke excellent English and was very friendly and accomodating.
Just back after spending a week in the Residenza Ki - and it was great!
A fantastic place to stay
I stayed at Residenza Ki for two nights in mid August. Although the hotel doesn't look much from the outside, the interior and customer service entirely make up for it. The staff were extremely friendly (not always the case in Rome) and very helpful. We were talked through and shown on a map where to find everything touristy on arrival, and any questions were answered with patience. The room was nice, neat and cool. For price, location and friendliness this hotel is really superb. I would definately recommend it.
A great wee spot worth staying in
Just returned from a city break in Rome. Stayed at the Residenza Ki hotel, on via Rasella with my Mum and My 2 sisters. It is so central to a lot of major attractions like the Trevi fountain and the Spanish Steps. It has excellent transport links to the metro. This meant that no where was too far to go to. The hotel is family run and being small meant that nothing was too much trouble for the manager GiGi who was always friendly and welcoming. The rooms had air conditioning a must have in Rome and were clean and comfortable. I would definately stay there again when I go back to Rome.
