What made our time in Rome so incredible was our hostel as well, called Yellow. If you ever go to Rome, young, old, budget or not, this hostel is up there as one of the most impressive I've seen. Do yourself a favour and book there, for 10.00 euro per person as night it will be the best money you'll spend in Rome..well maybe not, but you get what I mean.

The Pantheon was originally ...
Today we did nothing!
We woke up late, had a long lunch on our way to the Vatican, then was saw rain for the first time since London - but this was serious, heavy, non-stop rain complete with thunder and lightning. We sheltered in a cafe for a while, then after deciding it was never going to stop we went to a supermarket for supplies, had some beer and cheap dinner back at the hotel. We needed an early night again because we have to get up even earlier tomorrow: 3.30am!
