We travelled up to Rome from Sorrento. We drove to Naples and then took the train to Rome.
I lost my tooth on the first day. I went to the Colosseum. It was huge and there were lots of people too. It was an oval.

We went to the colosseum. The colosseum was massive. It was built for fights and games. I had a photo with a roman soldier. In the evening we walked to the Trevi fountain and I threw a coin into the water. The next day we went to The Time Elevator. I saw a movie on the history of Rome it was in 5D.
We come home in one day.
We had our first full day in Rome, hopped on a bus from Termini which passes most of the city highlights and dropped us at Vatican City.
We joined a tour there which goes through the museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peters. Some impressive artworks and relics 'obtained' by the church over the years. Even a lot of the building itself is …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Virgilio Rome
AOK Hotel in ROme
Locaation grat - five blocks from trian station. Quiet street. We asked for and got a third floor room - no street noise. Brakfast substandard. Room nice and clean with refrigerator and Safe. BBC and CNN Enlgish speaking. With the exception of one of the women (a long service employee) on the front desk, the front desk personnel were helpful and friendly. We would stay there again.
Good Location. That's about all ....
Great location. Quite street. Clean rooms, bathrooms, lobby, restaurant.
The issue I have with the hotel is that they allowed us to check in to our rooms without informing us that there was no hot water for the second floor rooms. Instead, they forced us to deal with ice cold showers for 2 1/2 days. This was very frustrating and made for a misrable trip to Rome. The hotel staff did not attempt to help with the situation. Infact, I would say that they were not helpful at all.
Bottom line ... if you like a nice room, but do not care about the service, Hotel Virgilio is your place to stay. Just pray nothing goes wrong with your room! Sometime it pays to spend a little more money to get good service.
One of the best things of the Virgilio hotel is the location, very near the Venecia square, the Roman Forum and the Quirinale, and very well connected by bus to every place in the city (plenty of bus stops in the nearby). It is situated in a quiet street behind Via Nazionale, so you take the advantages of being well situated and in a quiet street. The rooms are a bit small but really nice and modern. Actually, they seem to be completely new: the moquette carpet, the blankets, the walls, the toilet... things where normally you can see that one hotel is not so new, in this case were actually new. The bed is very comfortable, and the toilet is clean and very decent. So, in general, the hotel is recommended for those that are looking for a nice, modern, comfortable and clean place to stay in Rome. The lobby is also small but nice. The hotel does not have restaurant, but just a small room for the breakfast. But you can find plenty of Restaurants around the hotel (very recommended the Pizzeria "Al Giubileum", 75 m. from the hotel). The only thing that was not so nice was the breakfast: even if it was buffet (you can take whatever you want), it was poor on the variety of things to eat: only bread, some croissants, and just butter/marmalade to put inside(no bacon, cheese either some other things to be eaten). But as an overall, I think that I would choose the Virgilio Hotel in my next visit to Rome. Good breakfast can be found in some other cafes, but good, quiet, modern and well located places to sleep can't be found so frequently in Rome.For more details, ...
