Re: Which Hotel/location should I choose in ROME

Prasanta, people here often use www.venere.com to find, select, and reserve hotels. This website also has reviews of these hotels by people who stayed there.

Rome is a very walkable city, so to some extent, staying anywhere in the city center will be close to some tourist sites or another, and the others are just a walk or bus ride away.

Note that the main train station - Termini - is on the eastern edge of the city center, and there are minor stations along the southern edge. Note also that there are only two Metro lines, so the Metro doesn't go everywhere. It seems that every few feet of digging for the Metro, they find new ancient sites and the archaeologists make them stop ;-)

You will find that buses go everywhere. There are convenient passes for 1 day, 3 days, and 7 days - see the Transportation Tips on my Rome page for the descriptions and links.

If you use the venere.com website, the areas called "Navona", "Piazza di Spagna", "Pantheon", "Trevi", "Via Veneto", "Repubblica", and "Colosseo/Foro Romano" are all in the very center, with the surrounding areas still within the Aurelian Walls (the walls from the late Roman Empire that still circle the city in many places).

We booked into Mercure Piazza Bologna for May....I haven't been there before, but it seems to be quite reachable from bus, taxi, and the metro. On-line chats seem to give it a pretty good reputation, and they have a website which you can use to check them out. www.mercure.com

Travel Tips for Rome

Fontana delle Tartarughe

by OrlandoBR

This famous little fountain - the "Turtle" fountain - is hidden somewhere in the narrow streets between the Forum and the Tiber River. It is a relief to take a detour from the beaten touristic track and wander around the streets where most tourists don't go. Italy in Spring or Summer can get very crowded around any major points of interest, but there certainly are many calm and even silent streets to be explored, and that does not mean there are no important ruins or monuments or fountains there as well.

Bernini's Elephant of Minerva

by alza

Walking from the Pantheon, I saw this famous work by Bernini, by chance. It's a small obelisk carried by an amusing marble elephant sculpture called "Il pulcino della Minerva" (Minerva's chick) for its small size.

The obelisk was found in a nearby garden and is the smallest egyptian obelisk in Rome, dating to VIth c. BC. Pope Alexander VII asked Bernini to draw a support for the obelisk. Bernini took his inspiration from a dream figure in the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (!) by Francesco Colonna (a book I've never heard of but if I ever happen on it, I'll remember now.) The title means "The Strife of Love in a Dream".

The elephant was done between 1667-1669. The concept was Bernini's but the realisation is attributed to Ercole Ferrata (one of his students probably.) It stands on the ground of an ancient temple to Minerva.

The Church behind the obelisk elephant is Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, which is *the* church of Tuscan glories! Once back home and checking my photos, I was disappointed to have focussed only on the elephant, using too much zoom. I saw more beautiful shots that incorporated the Church in the background... I'll do better next time, maybe!
Inside, feast your eyes on the ogival vault, blue skies! See the moving tomb of Fra Angelico, in a dark passage left of the chancel.

Airport shuttle

by Peccavi

Getting from and to the airport with a pre-ordered airport shuttle is a good way to get where you need to go fast. Still - remember to stress for the hotel where you book the shuttle how many ppl. who are traveling and how much luggage you expect to bring. We were 6 ppl. traveling together and both from and to the airport the car we got was actually to small for all ppl. and luggage. On the trip to the airport we were stuffed like sardines in a box, and still they wanted €90 + tip for the trip. We didn`t pay the tip ,and the driver got mad - Italian style! :-)

excellent dinner

by iaint about Le Naumache di Micheli Alfredo

Recommended by our nearby hotel. They were right!
Friendly, traditional place (but not touristy in any way!).
Not a huge menu, but still plenty of choice. The service was good and informal, but not "too" friendly. Its nice to be treated as a normal customer and not as a tourist!
It has outdoor tables (with heaters for winter), presumably to service smokers and dog owners. I had ruota luganica (a "regional" sausage) with potatoes and veg. Excellent. My buddy had home made pasta with clams - different but good!

€38 for 2 main courses & 1 big salad, 2 desserts, half bottle of local red, water etc. Good value.

Ancient Ruin

by Hooverboy

This is an amazing site when you see it in the flesh,although there is nothing else to do here apart from pop in to see the pope at the vatican. Bars are scarce as are the `divas` and all you see is cobbles and fountains everywhere. Once you`ve see one then............
