Arrival in Rome

Sleeping in Rome

  • Hotel Alimandi Vaticano – I keep most of my groups here. Across the street from the Vatican Museums. Seven minute walk to Saint Peter’s. Tell them I sent you.

Eating in Rome

  • Abruzzi – Rome’s best Carbonara and the famous green sambuca. I’m here several times a week. Ask for Carlo and tell him I sent you.
  • Trattoria Polese – I’m here four or five times a week. Love this place! Great friends. Tell them I sent you.
  • Forno Feliziani – An excellent and affordable option near the Vatican Museums.
