"Great family vacation in Rome at Arches"
Fabio and Paulo arranged for a driver to pick us (2 adults, 2 kids 11 and 12 from the US) up at the airport and took us directly to the B&B (about 40 minute drive) . It's in a large apartment building and we were very early, so we left our bags with the building porter and wandered around the neighborhood. Do stop in at the little bar on the corner, drinks, snacks, light meals, a fabulous salad with tuna and nice staff who have some English - and a toilet. Do print a map of the area because it can be confusing and it's north of the tourist maps- and data and wifi are not reliable. We got into our room- it was the green room with a small balcony, 1 double and 2 twin beds. It isn't super fancy, but clean and very nice bathroom. Rooms have cable TV, (we could get BBC news) AC units, shutters and curtains. No dresser, but an open hanging unit. We got a tour of the place, there is a shared kitchen, in which you get one shelf in the fridge and one in a cupboard, which they supplied with milk, bread, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee pods and pastries. There is a toaster and microwave. There is a computer in the common room and free wifi in your own room (but it can be very slow.) The few problems we encountered (a stuck window, running toilet) were attended to right away. We stayed for 9 days as a home base. Ottaviano Metro is 4 blocks away, all night bakery on Viale Angelico just N of metro, & Lemongrass Gelato. Last night big meal at Hosteria on the corner,
