Feb. 5th, 2012 @ 11:44 am When in Rome...
Current Mood: curiouscurious

We are thinking of booking a week-long holiday in Rome towards the end of April. There's lots of hotels to choose from, all over the city -- but I'm wondering where we should book. What's the best part of the city to be? We don't need to see the Colosseum from our hotel room window, but I don't fancy having to travel half an hour by train to get somewhere interesting!
I'm also wondering about the weather. Are the temperatures bearable then?

And I know that some of you have been there (or even live there!) -- any tips?

I've been to Rome for a week during the penultimate year of highschool.
It was around Easter and we had wonderful Dutch-summer weather in terms of temperature, so that was fine.
As it was ages ago, I can't give you lots of tips. But the one thing that stuck with me the most was the day-trip to Pompeii - I highly recommend it.

Hm, most of the time we tend to stay in the city proper -- but I'll see if an excursion to Pompeii can be fitted in. Seems like quite a bit of travel.

Kijk, goed te weten dat het weer waarschijnlijk mee gaat werken. En dicht bij de metro zitten is natuurlijk ook altijd goed! Wij zijn niet zulke uitgaanstypes, dus clubs en disco's hoeven we toch niet in de buurt te hebben. ;)

Wat zijn volgens jou de must-see dingen in Rome?

April is a great time to visit southern europe. Nature looks like it's spring time but the temperatures are summery. When looking for a hotel, you might want to stay close to a trevl hub, a station for example. Makes it easier to get everywhere you want to go. I'm not sure how to identify respecteble parts of town, but the price range of the hotel often says something about he neighbourhood. Which is why I have a preference for family hotels with a kitchen in the room.

Having a (small) kitchen in the room is a definite plus, because then we can make tea and coffee in the room -- something that's always available in Japan and the UK, but sadly hardly anywhere else.
