... through (she is studying for her PhD in art history and was full of interesting historical stories!). We saw a block of marble (part of a statue) with what was thought to be the initials of Michelangelo... And got to trace our fingers on the initials, very cool. We saw many statues that had been recovered at various times throughout the City... The Vatican always got first right of refusal. We walked through the room decorated with maps, made many centuries ago ...
... out so we decided against it, but met up on a main street to get gelati, we walked with them to their pub crawl then we went back to our room to sleep. Saturday morning our alarm went off at 8am. We packed our bags, got ready, and had enough time to skype Sharni, Tony and the kids. It was the first time we'd skyped them so it was good to see their faces. We checked out and were able to leave our bags there and headed out to get a taxi to the Vatican. It was cold and ...
... the crowds, I would be tempted to change my whole sleeping routine to match the neighborhood—ha! Another benefit to having the air conditioner on all night—my clean laundry I hung up the night before was almost completely dry; last time it took 2 days!
After getting up so late (after 10 AM!), I decided to stay in and catch up on writing my blog and saving and posting pictures. I’m switching to a different website for the blog ...

Amon's hat. Our men were ready to hurt anyone who hurts Amon or anyone of us. The bus driver was quick to call the police, on the next stop the police were there and the gypsies were gone right away.
When we arrived La Giustiana Station, Lucca was there to pick us up. In consideration for Lucca & our guys, the Aunties & nieces piled high at the back of the van. Lucca saw us & his eyes got big. Of course that brought more laughter- because we ...
... sorry for the very small band of Bologna supporters completely surrounded and outnumbered by the police and stewards at the opposite end of the ground. One thing that did confuse me were some of the banners. Apart from the usual player adulation , club colours, and Lazio Ultras there was one with a picture of a rather grumpy looking old woman who looks like Anne Widdicombe and another of on old man looking equally grumpy and smoking a fag.

Historical Traveler Reviews Summit Roma Hotel Rome
I stayed at this hotel (Feb 2005). The rooms were fine- no power points unless you unplug the fridge! but no problems!
Not centrally located
We stayed at the Summit for a long weekend and found it to be okay. The hotel itself is situated outside of the city so the free shuttle service only operates between the hotel and the closest metro station at restricting times - not ideal for when you'd like to stay out late in the city. The staff were courteous and tried their best to satisfy our needs. The room was small and in need of some updating but it was okay for a snooze and a shower. I'm sure there are some better hotels in Italy.
beautiful old building ( used to be a convent) w/ many renovations, the individual rooms could use new decor, but the service and food is excellent-- best pizza and outdoor terrrace grill by the pool - our young school kids loved it-- has the feel of a caribbean resort in the middle of rome - the convenient shuttle bus is a big plus-- if ever back in rome - only at the Summit
Great pool, Pizza, but rooms cramped and mildewy.
Summit Roma is quite far from most attractions in Rome. The pool is extraordinary. The food is not, nor are the rooms. Rooms are crowded, mildewy, and service is sporadic. The outdoor area is lovely, as are the outdoor bar, and pizzeria. This is one property which I would only return to if it were free. One week there was more than enough! Italy can do so much better!
We have just returned from Rome after a 6 night stay at the hotel Hotel Summit roma - we thought the hotel was superb - our room was huge big enough for the 3 of us -it was very clean and had a lovely bathroom the airconditioning and safety deposit box where free.
Stayed at the hotel for four days in July, 2004.
The description we were given said approx 3 km (walking distance) from city centre, close to restaurants etc. Not true! Far from! Had to take a bus or free shuttle to nearest metro station (almost the last stop) to get near to the attractions and restaurants.
Room? The closet contained four hangers and the chest of drawers couldn't be opened. Neither could the balcony door. Bathroom excellent!
Hotel Restaurant? Lousy service (food burnt) and quite costly. Breakfast good but expensive.
Pool? Nice and not crowded. Nothing really special but we enjoyed it in the heat!
They stole one of our towels and haven't returned it (yet) even though we supplied our home address.
First of all, you should know that this hotel is located way out of the main city area. The nearest metro station is Cornelia which is 10-15 min. away from the hotel with bus. The hotel offer free shuttle to the metro and the airport. You could also take the bus to the metro just 500-600 m away from the hotel.
The room was nice and clean with a great bathroom. The pool was fine and the restaurant next to the pool was very good. Next to the pool they also had the bar open during the day. At last, the staff was very polite (in my experience not common in Rome).
We stayed at a hotel in Rome with much better location five days prior but we wanted a hotel with pool for the last three days. Thus, summit hotel offer you an excellent stay.
Definately wouldn't stay there again!!
I pre purchased one night here from Hotels, maily for it's free shuttle to the airport. the pool was fine, the restaurant next to the pool was very good, but the room was hideous!!!!
i almost left
it was disgusting, bird poop covering the balcony/patio. not only was there no shower, but the bathtub was inside a knee wall, so you had to crawl into it. a disturbing and unpleasant experience. then to top it off, they said they didn't know where the driver was, so we were going to have to find our own way to the airport. after making a big stink in the lobby, i think one of the cooks drove us.
Out of the city
We spent our last night in Rome here mainly because it offers free shuttles to the airport. It is way out of the main city area, so if you want to tour the city by walking it is a trip back to the historic areas. They will arrange tours to pick you up. The room was fine, clean, great bathroom, but no frills. Our big complaint was with a huge group of kids with some organization who ran up and down the halls until late and kept us up. This is a convention hotel. The food is excellent and we ate dinner by the pool. Staff was helpful, but I would not recommend this hotel, if you are interested in walking the streets of Rome as a tourist. We had stayed 4 nights in Rome two weeks earlier at a hotel near the Piazza Navona and it was a much better location.
