    First of all we all thought that we booked the show for Sunday night- we arrive fully excited to find out that we book Saturday show instead!! So we missed it..looking devestated and sad the guy and the ticket desk offered to check if he can let us in on Sunday- he called his manger and they said YES!! Really appreciated their flexibility,, now lets talk about the show.wow wow wow,, the lead violinist was super super..talented and in love with what she is doing..she infected us with her enthusiasm and love of music..brilliant talent..the singers were amazing and joyful..they felt our excitement a d gave us an encore piece..the highlight of the trip 🎉

    Very small but stunningly beautiful library. Visitors welcome but access to books and seating is limited. Staff very accommodating the day I was there. I stayed for about an hour and felt privileged to do so. A real pleasure.

    Great space for exhibitions with white walls and high ceiling. Really loved the atmosphere and Metropoli the photo exhibition on the 1st floor.

    I attended the IBA (International Bar Association) Annual Conference from 7 to 12 October at the newly completed Roma Convention Center La Nuvola.
    The Roma Convention Center was so new that the construction fence was still in place around it.
    In contrast to its plain glass wall facade, inside on the auditorium levels the structure is sinuous and has a 'wow' factor. The many levels are connected with adequate numbers of escalators, and the exhibition level is vast. There is room for many thousands of delegates, exhibition stands, lunch serving and seating areas.
    Down below, on the bottom level the 20 plus presentation rooms are large and small, depending on requirements, and the sound systems and projection systems work well. The wifi works well throughout the building.
    See photos.
    So what's the missing practicality? First, inadequate toilets on the exhibition level, the poor connectivity between the exhibition level and the presentation rooms (10 minutes walk) and the inadequate size of the auditorium (maximum 1,800).
    Transport connectivity to and from the Convention Center is poor - true there is the Laurentina Metro Station 5 minutes walk away, but unless your hotel is on that line, your options are limited. There are not enough taxis. And the buses hired for the convention took up to an hour to travel to the hotels at Via Veneto, the designated conference hotels, due to heavy traffic. Hotels closer to the Convention Centre were hampered by a lack of taxis, and no public transport. Work on the half completed high rise hotel next to the centre has stopped - only the shell has been built.
    My advice? Conference organisers of large conferences such as the IBA with 6,000 delegates have little choice but to use the Convention Centre in Rome. But they must do better for transport. And delegates? Choose a hotel near the Metro B Line which goes to Laurentina.

    Time on their website tells you that it is opened all day but when you get there, they only have it open for the public for a few hours. And even then, they had to find someone who would take me in and unlock the main area. It was beautiful but I couldn't stay because I felt that the person had been taken away from her job. I took a few pictures and quickly left. But it is stunning.

    Was nice to see where Goethe lived during his Italienreise. In the museum there were some drawers visitors could open to read background information and citations. Even more information about the time he was living in would have been great though.

    A good library, easy to achieve with underground (line B). It's great place if you have to find rare books but isn't good to goto study yours: in fact it's not possible take your book inside.

    Went here for a gala dinner. While it is very spacious and pleasant place, perfect for fashion events, weddings or dinning of large groups of people, the food while otherwise ok, lacked character. The staff on the other hand were very proffesional.

    Relatively straightforward airport. Nothing fancy or complicated about this place. There are no metro lines that serve the airport so your only option to get to/from the airport is to either get a taxi or a bus.

    When you arrive at the airport after going through security and baggage reclaim, you will be confronted with a number of kiosks with tourist info, currency exchange, busses to Termini (the main station in central Rome) and personal (private) taxi services to your hotel.

    If, like us, you want to get to your hotel quick, then the best option is to get a taxi. Please be very cautious about this. The taxi rank is just outside the terminal and the official taxis are white with a maroon coloured plaque on the door. This plaque denotes the flat fare rate that taxis can charge you from the airport to the city centre. In other words, if you need to get to your hotel in Rome and that hotel lies within the Aurelian Walls of the city, then the taxi costs €30 from Ciampino and €48 from Fiumicino. No more no less. But drivers like to exploit unsuspecting tourists like ourselves - one driver quoted us €65 for the four of us plus 6 cases plus a wheelchair! Ludicrous! Be adamant and steadfast and insist on €30. Another driver there didn’t like the fact that we knew the rules and had a little tantrum and started to say something in Italian that I can’t imagine was too friendly! Eventually, given that we had a sizeable crowd and baggage, we agreed on €40 in total for the trip with another driver.

    I didn’t feel very safe in the taxi - it was practically falling apart and I soon discovered that Italian drivers follow their own rules of the road and have no concept of what an indicator is.

    If I were returning again, I would most definitely get either a private taxi (more money but for the peace of mind, I wouldn’t really care) or the bus which costs about €5 one way. Hopefully this is informative and might save you a little cash.

    Almost 300 years worth of 35,000 volumes have been compiled here. It is primarily a research and study library and not so much a tourist spot. The subjects cover history, archeology, architecture, and art history. As the library is temporarily closed, there was no access to the third floor museum.

    Although it may be interesting but, if time is limited, I'd recommend moving this stop much further down the list of priorities.

    This was near our hotel. Prices ended up being pretty good! Only downside was no shipping home. If you are looking for fresh foods, definitely check this out.

    There are few places in the world that has truly taken my breath away. Borromini created an absolute masterpiece. Upon entering the modest doorway to the left of the entrance to the neighbouring church, indiscrete signs led me to the second floor to the library. Passing through the linen curtains and climbing an elegant flight of granite stairs, I found myself on the other side of an ancient wooden doorway. Entering quietly, I politely introduced myself to a team of four working diligently. I whisper that it is my first time at the library and after a few murmurs amongst themselves, a lovely woman named Chiara asked me to follow her. Doing so, she led me through a beautiful doorway and into the magical world that which is Borromini’s library. Stunning. The space is open to the public, however check the website for hours. They were preparing for an exposition so I made my visit short, but the ten minutes that I spent there has left a profound effect. I was transported to another time. Even after living in the Eternal City for five years, I had no idea that this exquisite space was in between my home and my office. Thank you Chiara for taking the time to show me around and to talk with me about the history!!!!! You made my day!

    It is located next to the church of San Luigi dei Francesi, in the heart of the historic center of Rome, a stone's throw from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, next to the Saint-Louis de France Cultural Centre.
    It is lovely, we spent half an hour browsing around, through the shelves and catalogues.
    There was a book presentation and the bookstore was almost packed.
    There were many Italians and also some visitors and foreigners.
    It is like a meeting place between French and Italian culture.
    We had few words with the owners too.
    There are around wenty-five thousand books of a very varied subjects and topics: literature, human sciences, figurative arts, theology, teaching of the French language ... without forgetting children's books, comics, paperbacks, but also DVDs and games for children.
    Very friendly people and most of the books for sale in the bookstore have the same price that they would have if sold in France.
    Go and have a look.
    It is worth it.
    Recommended.

    If you're in the area, this little café / bookshop is well worth a visit. It's an incredibly relaxing place to spend an hour sipping at a coffee whilst perusing the small but very well-chosen selection of books.
