... Well, what an impressive building! It was amazing. Such an incredible piece of history to be walking in and standing on. We touched the marble columns, admired the huge expanse of the dome and marvelled at how old it was. Our next stop was the Trevi fountain. There were so many people here. It too was extraordinary. We tossed coins in, alongside everyone else, watched people and the fountain before making our way to the Spanish steps. These too were quite busy. We tried to find the ...

I sat and prayed, but I have never prayed for that long before, so I brought my book to read when I ran out of things to say to God. I don't think that that is how it is suppose to work but it worked well for me.

Some welcome down time was enjoyed by all before heading back out for our last night in Rome. We went to a very busy trattoria close to the apartment, where the desserts were the definite highlight. Even I enjoyed a tiny tiramisu served in a shot glass as a complement to my limoncello... cute and delicious!

Excellent central location. Good access to metro and main sights. Breakfast served in the room is lovely. Good wifi and other facilities. Walls are a bit thin so can hear people talking in the corridors and the rooms around you occassionally. Loved our stay here though.
