Arrival In Rome

We touched down in Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci Airport after a hellishly cramped 8+ hour overnight plane ride.  We bought Trenitalia tickets from the airport into downtown Rome’s Termini Station, which is only a block from our hotel, Hotel Urbis.

Urbis is on the second floor of an old building with an elevator that doesn’t look safe enough for our luggage, much less us, located on a street completely lined with motor scooters.  It’s small, and we may be the only guests, currently, but that’s alright, there are lots of people coming in and out to use this computer and speaking rapid Italian with Aldo.

Aldo is our front desk guy/concierge, and is really cool, he talked with us about the immediate surroundings, pointed us towards a grocery store, and helped us make reservations for the Borghese Gallery tomorrow and the Vatican Museum on Monday.  He’s also planning a trip to Secaucas, New Jersey in a month, for reasons that neither Duch, Don, nor I could quite understand. Time to plan out our Saturday…
