The following pictures were taken during the summer of 2010 throughout various mornings in Rome, Italy. Needless to say, it was a surreal experience to be standing at the heart of such incredible ancient history and inspiring European life. Expect another photo essay soon on Rome at night!

Domus Victoria – A No-Nonsense, Comfortable Bed and Breakfast a Stone’s Throw From the Colosseum
By now, as you may have realized, we will use absolutely any excuse to travel. We had already taken a couple of recent trips when my brother and his family announced that they were going to a few cities in Europe for the summer and it would be nice if we could join them for a part of it.
Since we had never been to Rome (the kids had never been to Italy till that point) and had enough miles in our accounts, we decided to fly out to Rome for a week and join part of their journey. Since our budget for lodging was low for this unplanned trip, we looked for creative ways to stay comfortably in the city. Our search landed us on the Domus Victoria website and after noticing that the property included breakfast, was close to the Colosseum, and walking distance to both the local metro and Termini, we made our booking there.
Domus is a small, clean bed and breakfast with a very supportive staff. From the girl who checked us in and gave us our breakfast tokens and tips on Rome to the staff who responded to an emergency request, the place was so much more supportive than many fancier places we had stayed at. The breakfast provided at a nearby cafe included coffee and a baked treat and ample people watching. With a lively immigrant community, a park that screens movies in the summer and the Colosseum and other attractions for close company, the Domus presents good value for money.
