I got to travel to Rome twice in 2004, August and September. The first time I stayed closer to the airport the first time an the Golf Parco Sheridan, they have a free bus service to downtown Rome and it's a pretty nice place, BUT it's still a waste of an hour round trip being stuck on the bus. The second time I stayed at the Sofitel on the northwest side of the city (very convenient).

It was pretty hot in August and we were working outside, but it was still a good time. Have a look at the pictures I grabbed when I was there. Enjoy.

MASSIVE building. I understand that the filled the building with sand and poured the concrete top to the building over the sand. Strange approach.

I showed up at high noon to get max sun shining thru the top, this made some pictures good without flash.

Absolutely beautiful. Probably the number one tourist spot in Rome.

This is known by Romans as the meeting place. When someone says, I'll meet you later, it's understood that this is where you should go.
