Travel Blogs from Rome
It was by chance that we found ourselves spending a day in Rome. Originally we had hoped to take a direct flight from Sicily to Prague but due to several flight cancellations we ended up having to spend a night in Rome (not too much of a hardship!). As it turns out our day in Rome fell on our Wedding Anniversary – what …
Rome has managed to Wow us again - what a beautiful crazy city this is. Sat 26 May we left our lovely little quiet village of Radicondoli and 4 1/2 hours later we are thrust into this heaving mass of humanity - quite a culture shock. Jon and Richard have managed driving in Italy very well and on our journey down to Roma we …
... actually get in the Vatican. We were dropped off at 815 which I was freaking out about we are late! Where do we go what do we do?! But once inside through security everything was great found our tour and started it off! Well at the time of doing the tour it was OK for me a bit disappointing for my own feelings and for sinisa he didn’t love the facts! Once again for me I didn't get a "sign" or revelation while I was there.. I don’t know why ...
... what is being served outside his doorstep, but lets move on. St Peters Basilica was incredible. Pretty amazing to think how old it is. We then walked up 325 stairs to get to the top and look out over the whole of Rome. That was an effort. Coming down, the steps went around and around in a tight little circle and made us really dizzy. I said to Ollie that if we were banished in the afterlife that was possibly what they would make us do for eternity. I then realised it was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sant Angelo Rome
Great Location and Service - July 2003
We were there in July 2003 for 3 nights. The location is PERFECT. Easy walks - 15 min to St. Peter, 25 min to Fontana di Trevi and the Spanish Steps. Quiet neighborhood, GREAT staff, very good local restaurants - try Le Nane - great food and the red wine is cheap and very good.
Loved the Sant Angelo
The Hotel was a very nice and the staff was OUTSTANDING! Just a short walk to all of the major sights. The staff was very helpful arranging transportation, providing directions and recommending places to eat. Their transfer service to the airport was excellent. There are several excellent restuarants within a 5 minute walk. These are not the "tourist traps" but good local cuisine. If you are looking for a fancy hotel to "put on airs" this is not the place for you. If you are looking for quiet, friendly & clean with a great location, this is your place. I would definately stay there again. Ron Melton 3 April 2003
Easy walking distance to all sights
We had a pleasant 6 night stay at this Hotel. Made to order coffee in the mornings was great. Very easy walking distance to all major sites and minimal street noise. Friendly staff and having CNN was great.
