Alessandro Downtown Hostel

Via Carlo Cattaneo 23, 00185 Rome, Italy
3.5
6 reviews

The best thing about this hostel is the friendly staff. The place is not exceptional, but it isn't horrible either. It is what you would expect from a hostel. The location is the best feature being only a few blocks from Termini station. If your goal is to see more of the city than your room, then this hostel is ...

    In the heart of Rome sits the grand Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore where major streets converge. The huge church is a great spot to take a break, especially since it's so beautiful. Take in the beautiful mosaics and, for the love of God (literally), don't forget to look up.

    The church in its current form was commissioned by Pope Hadrian I around the year 780, and built on top of the remains of a 5th-century structure and was designed to house the bones of Saint Praxedes and Saint Pudentiana. The two female saints were murdered for providing Christian burial for early martyrs in defiance of Roman law. The basilica ...

    Roma Termini Railway Station

    57 reviews

    Termini is one of Europe's great railway station, though not as aesthetically pleasing as Milano Centrale or Grand Central Station in New York. If you're a backpacker, it's also the best place to find cheap, private lodgings as many apartment owners come here looking for single travelers to rent rooms for a night or two.

    This place is always packed! But for good reason. It's kind of one of those "must sees" when in Rome. If you go at sunset, it is absolutely stunning to see the shift between day and night. It's a whole other type of gorgeous in the evening. When you go make sure you know the traditions. First have 2 pennies ...

    This is another must see sight. If you are going to do the tour, you mist sign up for them early. Honestly, they're a little more pricier, and they don't take you anywhere you can't see yourself. And make sure you're getting your tour from the people that are supposed to be doing them. Taking the time to take this ...

    15 reviews

    This succession of rooms below the Chiesa di Santa Maria Immacolata at the base of the Via Veneto is one of Rome's best secrets. Capuchin monks unearthed the bones of 400 or so of their brethren and created this multi-room sculpture/meditation on the ephemeral nature of our earthly existence. Seeing pelvic bones arrayed in fan shapes and vertebrae in trailing ...

    With one of the best night-time views of the Colosseum, Coming Out is a great gay bar but fun to hang out at for straight peeps as well. I had many a tipsy, fun night here when I lived in the Eternal City.

    Believe it or not... who would have thought about stumbling into an Irish pub... in Italy... mere blocks from the Colosseum?! It's actually a pretty spot on themed pub. And I have to say the food, the beer and the prices are right up there! It's down a little alley, but if you're in the area and looking for something ...

    Constantine didn't like Rome, that's why he moved the capital to Istanbul. At the same time, he fought his way through three rival claimants for the throne and never lost a major battle in the process. He also began the official process of converting the empire to Christianity. Thus Constantine's triumphal arch is a record of great deeds on par ...

    I was never all that impressed by the Spanish Steps as a monument in and of themselves. I did hang out with some friends here in 2005 after a long pub crawl on the Fourth of July.

    The Basilica of San Clemente is one of Rome's more interesting and lesser known gems. It's an excavation all in itself. You enter at ground level and think, oh, whatever, baroque church, blah blah blah. But then, you get to descend to a very well preserved Medieval church on the level below. Two churches, built one on top of the ...

    This incredible column is inscribed with a spiralling bas-relief which recounts the story of the Emperor Trajan's Dacian wars. Funnily, a statue of St. Peter was plunked atop it in the 16th Century. What I really enjoy about this column is its absolute giant grandeur, as well as the knowledge that you could actually climb up all the way inside ...

    My first sight of this corner was from the back of a motorino, and it crystallized the particular beauty of Rome for me. On this traffic choked four way intersection, air heavy with smog, these four incredibly elegant statues stand watch, reminding us of the layers upon layers of time the city has seen.

The Roman world fusion band, the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, was formed around here and is a real ...

    One of those treasures that's all too common in Rome, Santa Maria della Vittoria houses the incredible Bernini sculpture "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" so circumspectly that you'd never know it was there. The church is beautiful, but the sculpture itself, like so many of Bernini's works, is truly masterful.

    This old stable block is now an art museum that programs an interesting rotation of modern and classic art. The horse sized circular ramp ascending to the entrance is particularly cool, revealing the equine origins of the place.

    Monti is an interesting little Roman neighborhood, full of cobblestone streets, great food and wine bars, and very good shopping. Tucked just behind Termini, it's quite central.
