... and stunningly framed paintings where everywhere we looked. By the time we reached the actual Sistine chapel we had already seen some amazing art and I guess this is why it didn't impact upon us as much as I would have thought. The room was quite large and the ceiling was again amazingly painted in its entirety, large paintings filled every space sadly however we were not allowed photos. The fact that this was created by one man only is a great testimate ...
... schooled on the beauty of art – what an awful play on words, but I’m keeping it. Like millions before us, we visited the Sistine Chapel and stared in silence (we heard angry "hush" by the angry looking order patrol) at the marvel brought about by human hands.
The following few days were a bit different than usual, as Emilie went back to Oslo to solve a few issues, and I stayed behind. But, that is for the next ...
... tucked inside - I dashed back to catch the regional train to Ferrara. Bologna station was packed with young people and all the trains were running late, and I have learnt not to trust the information counter when it comes to platforms and trains. The only thing that counts is what is showing on the big boards and the platform screens.
After about an hour I arrived in Ferrara and caught the bus up into town, and the castle was hard to miss! It is a whopper! Ferrara ...
... into a buried part of Rome that very few people ever get to see. What other incredible wonders of history must lay hidden beneath our feet at any given moment as we traverse the city! And what history-rich lives Italians must have when such significant archaeological ruins function as your family restaurant's wine cellar!
It was certainly a night to remember.
... so glad to be stayed-put for a little while.
Campbell has been keeping up with his school and doing well. Hannah has been learning more songs on her "charango".
Our Greek, we have discovered is stinky as we only have a page of words from our Europe guide book. But the Greeks seem to know English better than the French and Italians, so... lucky us?
This is Andrew, the Greek people I have met so far have liked Australians... heh heh the fools.

Historical Traveler Reviews Roma Boutique Hotel Rome
I booked this hotel in November for our stay in March of the following year. When we got there after a long flight from Chicago, we were told that our room was taken by some elderly woman that was sick... etc. They switched us twice, once to a hotel far away from anything, then to the Gladiatori. Over all we had a nice experience at the Gladiatori, the sister hotel of the Roma Boutique. If I had to do it over again, I would stay at the Gladiatori straight out or the Exedra. My sister had a gorgeous room there and an incredible breakfast for about the same price at the Gladiatori. I think the story about the old lady was a lie anyway. i would not stay at the Roma .. or recommend to my friends.
Great New Place in Rome near the American Embassy
My boyfriend & I stayed here on a trip last November.
They are located on an upper floor of an apartment building.
The room was nicely appointed with lots of storage & a large desk area which we used for eating breakfast. Comfortable bed.
The window opened to the street, but we did not hear much street noise when windows were closed. (view was of the American Embassy)
Very Nice shower in bathroom (no bathtub in our room.)
Front desk personnel were very friendly & accommodating.
The Barbarini metro & an internet cafe is about 10 minutes walk away.
Only warning... Bring your own soap & shampoo unless you like musk scent. They had bath products labelled with ETRO brand when we were there.
We stayed in this hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and it surpassed my expectations. The hotel is on the fourth floor of an office building and only has a few rooms. Ours was at the far end and was very comfortably furnished - a great bathroom and big shower, flat screen TV with British and German channels as well as Italian. All the staff could not have been more freindly or helpful.
Very personal attention from the staff.
Breakfast served to you in bed every morning, with really good food.
Beautiful room, very luxurious.
Room is a little small
Not a free standing hotel.
Not close to anything.
I would next time rather stay close to the Spanish Steps, in the heart of where all the action is. We had to rent a mo-ped to get around because we were so far from everything.
Amazing place in great location
Absolutely amazing place on the fourth floor of an office building in the embassy area. The staff were really friendly, helpful and efficient. Rooms were clean, new and breakfast in the room was good. The location is ideal for central attractions as it is near a subway station. Already recommended this to most of my family!
¡Que hotel más chic!
Me encantó este hotel, era como un hotel moderno de Nueva York. Muy limpio y el personal era increíble. La directora del hotel, Benedetta, era genial. ¡¡También me encantó la televisión de plasma!! Recomendaría encarecidamente este hotel a todo el mundo que vaya a Roma.
Nice little Hotel, quite new, in good location.
