Travel Blogs from Rome
So today was another exciting day. Everything is an ADVENTURE! you make a plan...and what happens...nothing according to plan. We start off the day in ahurry to squeeze a last few sights in dublin. first, we hit up the st patrick's church but just the outside cuz i'm a cheapo! then we travel to the jameson whiskey distillary, but just the outside …
... rule of visiting Rome- never go to popular sites at mid-day. We didn't really have much choice, however, because our reservations for the Vatican museum were for 2:00pm, and naturally we wanted to visit St. Peter’s Basilica beforehand. Although the line to get in snaked around the square, it didn’t take that long to get inside. As always when visiting a church, Caitlin had to slip into a long skirt and ...
... the best weather! Warm and sunny but cool in the shade of the buildings. We continued to walk, and within a couple minutes, we were standing in Piazza della Rotunda staring at the Pantheon, the most intact relic from ancient Rome. It was originally built in 31 BC then destroyed and rebuilt in 126 AD as a place used to worship the Roman Gods, but it was converted to a Catholic Church during the 7th century. It's very striking, lined with Corinthian columns. Inside was ...
... we promise that we'll go through the camera and pick out the ones we like best and upload them next time. We also don't know what internet access is going to be like, so please! be patient with us. Also, we'll have some fun "interactive" activities in the future, so stay tuned!
Oh, and Caligula means "little boots". It was a nickname given to the emporer when he was a small boy. Now, tell me what his "real name" was!
Until next time,
Your very tan adventurists
... At a rough guess we would say about 4 or 5 thousand people!! In some places it was hard to move! I raced to the middle of the steps and Tracey took my photo because honestly, we thought we could play a good game of WHERE'S WALLY!!!
We moved onto Piazza de Poppolo a large square in Rome with an Egyptian Obelisk. As we drew closer to the square the Polizia ( State Police), Carabinieri (Military Police always handsome and never seeming to be doing much! ) and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Teatro Pace Rome
Stayed for 5 nights at Hotel Teatropace at the beginning of April, 2005. Booking the hotel couldn't have been easier and their website gave lots of information about the hotel. A fixed price transfer from the hotel was arranged prior to arriving and was greatly appreciated when our flight arrived at 11.55pm! The driver managed to negotiate some incredibly tiny streets full of people, only knocking one wing mirror!
I found the location fascinating, tucked away like that in a maze of little lanes. I liked getting lost around there and stumbling on old churches and houses. But it's not very good if you want to drive (in Rome?!?) or if you don't like wandering around.
OK, so the location is great.
We have just returned from staying at Teatropace for 3 nights and we found it to be central for all the sights. The amenites are fine, it was very clean with a hugh double bed, which was changed every second day with clean towels every day and basic toileteries provided. There was a bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, but no milk or creamer provided. There was a TV but there was no English speaking channels. We had a quite spacious room as it was a triple room for the two of us, with the third bedroom up a flight of stone stairs with a single bed and a wet room. The wardrobe space was a good size. Breakfast was provided on a tray but as there was only one chair my husband had his sitting on the bed which was not comfortable, another chair would of been nice. As we were on the fourth (top) floor we had a shared veranda with two other rooms. Again there was only two chairs and no tablefor the three rooms. More could be made of that space. The windows are double glazed with wood shutters and we found it very quiet. There is radiator heating and air conditioning.
Nice Hotel...a little niosy!
We spent three nights here from 13 - 16 March. The rooms were very quaint, clean, nicely decorated, amenities. Decent size bathrooms with hairdryer, maid service every day. Tea/coffee making facilities in room with small fridge able to store our own 'store' bought stuff. Staff very friendly and location perfect (not close to metro however but that wasn't a problem for us) - a stone's throw from Piazza Navona.
Our last two night here, between the hours of 1:30-3:30AM there was a lot of rowdy noise only two doors down on the ground floor. Perhaps a club/bar? bumping music and loud 'happy' people. We stayed in rooms 201 and 202, maybe other parts of hotel would be better? other than the lack of sleep (!) it was perfect.
Loved this small, cosy hotel
We have just returned from a four night stay at this hotel. Perfect location. Room was beautiful, comfortable bed, everything spotlessly clean. Powerful shower with plenty of hot water. Lots of restaurants and bars close by and within walking distance of all major sights. We had no reason to use public transport. Breakfast was served to the room, cappucino, orange juice and a croissant at whatever time you required. Fabrizio and Roberto, the perfect hosts. Both speak excellent english and are very friendly and helpful.
There is no elevator, so if you have problems with steps, ask for a room on the 1st floor.
When we return to Rome we will definately stay here again, and as for Rome, what a beautiful city! Certainly worth a visit.
I loved this hotel
This hotel is fantastic. Far enough away from the major tourist areas but yet very convenient location. Short walk to many bus lines. Hotel staff (Jonathan and Roberto) very helpful! Rooms very clean. Breakfast delivered to your room. You can't go wrong with Hotel Teatropace.
We stayed at the Hotel Teatropace for 4 nights in January. I can't say enough nice things about it. The location is especially great (once you find it)--narrow one-way streets. The breakfast was great and soon there will be a breakfast room in the basement which will make it even better (now it is brought up to your room from a corner cafe). The staff was helpful but unobtrusive. There is no elevator which could be a problem if you were on the top floor. We were on the second and it was not a bad climb. The rooms are nicely decorated and new and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and a REAL QUEEN. There was AC and heat which we needed in January. It cost 120 Euros per night and I would stay there again. It is in a REAL neighborhood just off Piazza Navona which felt very safe. There were at least 20 osterias and cafes in the neighborhood but we were only there long enough to try 4 for dinner. They were all great and it was fun to check out the menus and then choose one. There is a great street of antique shops nearby.
This hotel was trully my favorite on this trip.
