We arrived in Rome at a busy time, and booked online not knowing area at all. Our room was really basic, but really clean, and cleaned every day..... Felt very secure here, though noisy...Ear plugs good if you don't use Air Conditioning (extra) WiFi extra. This area is convenient to Metro, Main Train Station (Termini), Supermarket around corner, Information Booth not far near Santa Maria Maggoria.
From Termini take main entrance (largest area) and turn left...Take street you are facing and walk 4 blocks, turn left..at Cathedral.....Santa Maria Maggoria and walk to Piazza Vittoria Emmanuele 11. Take 3rd street Via Merulana and walk on left 3 blocks, cross road, and viola you will be at the right number...Restuarant on corner, then. Large wooden doors. Reception on first floor.

The weather has been absolutely wonderful, sunny skies, 25 degrees C with minimal breeze. Perfect for walking this wonderful city. Goodnight for now...I have a bottle of wine waiting for me in bed with my wonderful ...
... men's fashion. I went back and climbed the Spanish Steps. It started raining just as I got to the top so I was able to shelter in the church. Once it stopped raining I climbed back down and went to visit Keats house at the bottom of the steps. This house is where the poet Keats died aged 25. It is now a library of Keats and Shelley's works and tells the story ...
... to take the day as it comes.
As we started walking I remembered reading about Campo di Fiori, which was meant to be the location of a colourful little street market. So we typed it into Google maps and set off to check it out. Let me just say it was certainly colourful but it was not little. This market was absolutely amazing and full of the most vibrant and interesting fruit, vegetable, cheese, flowers, balsamic, oil, spices, ...
... the monument was worth a visit so we set off through the massive corridors and stairways until we reached the terrace overlooking the Forum. Having rehydrated ourselves we et off for the Capitoline Museum next door. However, as were were about to descend the stairs at the back of the monument we saw a front entrance to a church so we went in. The church in question was the Saint Maria in Aracoeli. The facade is imposing because it is level with ...
