The hotel was about 45-50 minutes from the airport and the drive was interesting to say the least. lots of twists and turns down side streets packed with people. the hotel itself is awesome it is still a functioning church which i thought was a nice touch. the staff (valentina) was very friendly and spoke fluent english, they also knew the area well and had maps. the breakfast buffet was very good. the room was nice to sleep relax and shower but thats about it ask for an extra room key because the key activates the electric, we had to leave the room while our electronics charged so getting the extra key was a must. . there was a refrigerator which was nice because there is a grocery about 2 mins walk away. there is also a little pizza place that sells various foods, get yourself some fresh mozzerella it was the best ive ever had. the church is open till 7pm and is beautiful you can take pics but remember to be respectful. the metro was about a ten minute walk from the hotel, we used it to get to the trevi fountain which was another 15 minutes from metro walking, the vatican again about 15 minutes walk after surfacing. we took a cab from the vatican to the colosseum it was about 15 euro for the cab ride. the trevi fountain was really nice and had great picture opportunities. the vatican was completely awesome we did a private tour with when in rome tours(we also did a trip to pompeii and sorrento with them) and it was well worth the price. you are NOT allowed to take pics in the sistine chapel. we didnt go inside the colosseum because numerous tour guides told us it wasnt worth it and you can see alot from outside which was true. there are stairs across the street from the colosseum to a metro entrance near these stairs there is a little place called risto cafe, go in there and eat, great food, excellent service,vast variety of food.keep in mind that the food servers in europe are paid a salary so if you want to tip 1-2 euro is sufficient. italy was fantastic and I cannot wait to go back.
