... ravioli's in a cream sauce.... AMAZING. We had a bit of wine, walked around the streets at night and called it a day by like 10pm. Pretty successful first day!
The next day we woke up early again and planned to do the Vatican and Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Luckily our Rome pass included both of these sites so we didn't have to wait at all which was amazing. Everywhere we went was so crowded so we always had to stick together. The Vatican museums were so ...

A couple days ago we arrived in Rome. To get here, we took an overnight train from Paris. The compartments we slept in were tiny, and uncomfortable, but luckily we all survived. On the morning we arrived, everyone except for me, Abby, and Cindy went to the Vatican. They seemed to enjoy it, but I was too exhausted and it was too hot outside to even consider going. Honestly, mostly what ...
... we have now was rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian (completed AD 128). The preservation of the ancient temple is thanks to its consecration as a Christian church in the 7th century, dedicated to Mary and all the martyrs. Of the tombs found in the building, we noticed that of the artist Raphael.
We then walked over to the famous Trevi Fountain. This huge baroque fountain is constructed on the site of the revived Aqua Virgo, one of the aqueducts ...
Across the street was Palatine Hill where the emperor and his family lived. The emperor's palace was gigantic. Senators and other prominent people lived nearby. Circus Maximus was located just outside so the Emperor and friends could watch chariot races. Arches were built to celebrate great victories. Vestal virgins kept watch over flame from age six when pulled away from families.
We fell right ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Zone Hotel Rome
ONLY MISSING A RESTURANT
Excellant hotel some way from centre which is easily accesable via the metro (station 5 mins away) or free shuttle bus(hourly)no resturant but staff recommended a stunning resturant only 5 min walk away.
Inexpensive, clean & quiet but in the burbs
A cousin living in Rome booked the hotel for us and we would definitely go back so that says it all. It was like a north american mid range business hotel and far out but the price couldn't be beat (100 euros a night with breakfast for 2)and was so quiet we slept like babies. Next time we would rent a scooter for the whole time to do the back and forth into town even though there is a free shuttle. Loved all the diversions in the city but was happy to get a good nights sleep.
We will return to the Zone
A very nice clean modern hotel with nice cheerful and helpful staff.
The mini-bus service, every hour to the Centre of Rome, was extremely helpful. I would, in future, return to the Zone.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while in Rome. Generally, the hotel was fine. Modern, clean, spacious rooms. However, we were a little disappointed with our stay. The hotel website is misleading. The hotel is 2km from the Vatican, not the centre of the city. Walking took about 25mins, but it was not a flat walk. If you plan to walk around Rome all day, then you probably don't want to walk to the city as well. There is a shuttle bus that goes hourly into Rome, but it is only an 8 seater.
