Hotel Ciao

Via Marsala, 96/B, 185 Rome, Italy

This isn't really a hotel, it’s a number of rooms in a few converted apartments in an old building in front of Termini Station, so couldn't be more convenient. You have to find the right bell to ring. The building entrance looks a bit run down and you have to carry your luggage up a number of stairs before you ...

    It's gorgeous, overwhelming and breathtaking and is one of those most photographed and recognized buildings in the world. Believe me when I tell you that a visit to the Colosseum will not disappoint. I had wanted to see the Colosseum since I was a little girl and when I finally took a trip to Rome, I was absolutely overcome with ...

    Try to avoid the crowds by coming in the morning. Also, DO NOT pose with the gladiator...10 Euros per person? Are you kidding me? I can buy a good book with that. But it's really very beautiful. The history is amusing as well.

    Beautiful church with high, ornate ceilings and countless altars. It's elaborate and grand and makes you feel small without making you feel insignificant. It's a little known fact that the tomb of Gianlorenzo Bernini rests here; blink and you could miss the step indicating its location. It's also said that there are remnants of Jesus' baby crib kept here, though ...

    The church itself is nothing much to see, but the underground crypts are. Venture beneath the church to see a pagan temple repurposed for Catholic ritual. There are tombs and arches and corridors that lead every which way. It's not a massive labyrinth, but it's a fun little detour. Head down far enough, and you'll see where fresh mountain water ...

    Recommended to me by fellow Gogoboters, this is an insanely beautiful yet haunting crypt with the bones of hundreds of Capuchin monks. They have a taste for the macabre, but it's one of the most remarkable tributes to the pedigree of the order.

    Definitely go at night when it is just eerily beautiful to behold. Roman grandeur writ very large. And it's a lot of fun too, especially navigating the crowds and climbing the steps.

    Presidential palace, formerly the temporal home of the papacy when the pope still ruled the papal states. Definitely the case that the presidential court in Italian has all the trappings of monarchy. Grand and yet somehow understated.

    Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

    The chains of St. Peter are indeed on display at the Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli, though, unlike modern magic acts, one can't actually touch them to see if they're real. (I suppose that's a matter of faith.) The church is beautiful, as are many churches in Rome, but the vincoli and a statue of Moses by Michelangelo are ...

    Wonderful art gallery and library in an astonishing building that also houses Galileo's academy. The entrance fee is a few euro which gives you access to wonderful art and statuary. Splendid and in a great neighbourhood in Rome.

    It's a great place to spot tourists, that Piazza Barberini. Located in an island in the middle of the street, it's located right above the Barberini Metro stop. The Fontana del Tritone e Fontana delle Api sits in its center, visible from all around. While it may be overshadowed as an attraction by the nearby Fontana di Trevi, it's still ...

    The Domus Aurea (Golden House) was a large landscaped portico villa. Designed to take advantage of artificially created landscapes, Domus Aurea was built by the Emperor, Nero, in the heart of ancient Rome, after the great fire in 64 AD had cleared away the aristocratic dwellings on the slopes of the Palatine Hill.

    If I could live anywhere in Rome, it would be in Monti. Hip restaurants, classic Italian boutiques, and a central location between the Colosseum, Centro Storico and the Trevi Fountain make it a must-see neighborhood. Small streets that aren't crowded at night lead to a piazza where young folk congregate with pizza slices and beers. My favorite gelateria (Fatamorgana) is ...

    Congregating in the heart of Monti, you'll find the hip youth of Rome. With bottles of beers, bicycles and lots of chatter, they surround the Fontana di piazza della Madonna dei Monti, a large but simple structure in the relatively plain square. Nearby boutiques and gourmet eateries provide plenty to see when sitting becomes a bore. With a good friend ...

    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.

    Great museum to spend an afternoon in- it's not nearly as crowded as many of the other sites, which allows for a lot less stress. I saw the National Geographic 125th Anniversary exhibition here and absolutely loved it. There are always rotating exhibitions, when I was there they had 2 running. Also they accept student cards for a discount!

The exhibits displayed in the Palazzo Massimo near the central Termini are originals dating from the 2nd century BC to the end of the 4th century AD. On the 2nd floor particularly are decorations from public buildings ...
