Picking a place to stay in Rome Italy we chose Hotel Amalfi due to the close proximity to the train station.
We only had two more nights before our two week trip was over. First we had to get to Rome from Naples. Plenty of people were taking this train.
It was a pleasant ride with views of the countryside. The time passed quickly, only an one hour and ten minutes. Before we knew it, we were arriving at Roma Terminal. As we were leaving, we walked by men cleaning the front of a train before it departed.
This station was much busier than Naples.
Hotel Amalfi was only five blocks from the terminal. We chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the train station. The last time we were in Rome, we took a limo to the airport and he dropped us off at the wrong terminal. This time we decided to use the train.
As we made our way on the cobblestone streets to the hotel, I was glad J had the luggage.
We passed the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore Church on our way to our hotel. This became our landmark for finding Hotel Amalfi, as the church is easy to see and it is lite up at night.
After checking in the hotel, we looked around and dropped off our bags.
There is a seating area and breakfast room right off the lobby.
The breakfast room.
Our room was very small but functional.
The elevator was very tiny. Both of us could not fit with the luggage. Instead we had to ride up separately. When we went back down with just the two of us, it was a tight fit.
We ended up taking the steps to avoid the small elevator.
Breakfast was included with our stay. There was the usual breakfast items, but the croissants were some of the best we had on our trip.
After getting settled, we went out to wonder the streets and enjoy the historical sites of Rome for the rest of the day.
