Julie, Ben and I flew out to Rome from Gatwick last Saturday, 25th May, for a city break to mark my 65th birthday. We stayed for five nights at The Building Hotel in Via Montebello, close to the Termini Railway Station, which proved an ideal base for visiting the numerous world famous landmarks the eternal city has to offer.

Our lengthy walks around the centre took in the Vatican Museum, the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, Circus Maximus, Villa Borghese, the Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, the Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, plus the many superb Basilicas, which for me were the highlight.

We were also able to take advantage of the never-ending restaurants and the understandably delicious pasta and pizza menus. Our thanks to everyone at the Hotel and pizzerias for their welcome and hospitality. A real treat.
