Crowne Plaza Rome – St Peter’s Hotel
Piazza della Repubblica
After falling in love with Venice in February, I was sure Rome wouldn’t be as beautiful to me, but guess what ? I was so wrong. This city is as much charming as Venice was. I feel like all the Italy is made for me. I love this country so much (and god I love there food) and I can’t wait to visit many many more cities during next trips like this one !
📍Via Aurelia Antica, 415, 00165 Roma RM
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel, it’s not in the center of Rome, it’s more between the airport and the city, so it was perfect for us. The hotel has a navette/bus that can bring you to the center of Rome, we took it on our first day but it was to go in the city to rent a scooter for our stay, to be more free around the city.
The hotel is really nice, we stayed at the pool one morning for an hour to tan a bit and to enjoy the water because it was really hot at this time of the year.
Rent a bike : Treno e Scooter Rental
📍Piazza Del Cinquecento, (Ingresso parcheggio auto – vicino alla cassa), 00185 Roma RM
We had a bike (50cc Piaggio Liberty) for only 58€ for 48 hours. It was a really good price and we enjoyed our bike during all of our stay.
We didn’t took the typical Vespa (125cc) because it was 116€ and we found that the first price was cute enough for us !
Sunset spot : Parco Savello
📍Piazza Pietro D’Illiria, 00153 Roma RM
Ice cream : G Like Gelato
📍Piazza Cola di Rienzo, 29, 00193 Roma RM
According to me the best ice creams in town are the “G Like Gelato” . They are just so good ! I’m not a ice-cream person, most of the time I hate it because it hurts my stomach. But as I was in Rome I had to eat at least one, so I tried. And I just fell in love with Italian ice-cream. Even if it hunted me the next day I ate another one haha.
As for the restaurants, I’m so sorry I don’t have any address cause like a looser I lost all the business cards I kept for this post. But the advice I can give you is to do like us : we didn’t look on internet or anything, we just walked on the streets and when we found a calm and cute place we just sat there. We did that during all of our stay and we were never disappointed. I feel like all the food in this city is good as hell !
