Roma

Last week we decided to try the new Italo train (a new company offering high speed train transport between the main Italian cities), so we are booked for a weekend in Rome at the end of June, which we'll be surely writing about. But then I came to think that I never shared with you the photos of our last trip to Rome (the one where we discovered Sora Margherita!), so here they are!
Colosseum



Piazza di Pietra

Pantheon

Fountain of the Four Rivers, Piazza Navona
The beautiful Trevi fountain

Roman Forum
We stayed at the Radisson Blu, next to the train station Termini. The area is not nice at all but it's close to the station and therefore it's easy to move around the city. The hotel is really cool, it has a modern design that embraces the Roman ruins inside. The rooms are small but have everything you need. There is a unique structure in wood that holds the bath tub, the bed, the night tables and a clothes rack. Satellite TV, bathroom and electric drapes complete the decor. A rich buffet breakfast is served on the top floor, the view is not Rome's best but the rooftop pool area is relaxing. Staff is a bit rude but for Rome standards it's OK. We definitely recommend this hotel, especially because it's so difficult to find a decent middle price range hotel with super clean rooms and rich breakfast in Rome.

PS. When the Roman weekend comes we'll have our brand new DSLR camera so get ready for better pictures! (hopefully)
