When visiting Rome, The Traveling Professor recommends staying in a hotel close to the Termini train station because of the proximity to metro, bus, and train transportation.  The hotels we like are the Massimo D'Azeglio, the Hotel Nord Nuova, and the Meditteraneo.   Have with you a Roma Pass for 3 days of unlimited transportation within Rome and VIP entrance to 2 museums.

Please note that the Vatican Museum is closed on Sundays and on certain holidays.  It is very important to purchase tickets in advance to the Vatican Museum including Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.  The Vatican Museum is NOT included on the Roma Pass.

Day 1:  Arrival in Rome.  Get checked into your hotel and do the Rome Walk from Campo di Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps.

Day 2:  Start off with a reserved tour of the Vatican Museum including the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica of St. Peter.  In the afternoon, make an appointment to visit the Borghese Gallery, covered with the Roma Pass.

Day 3:  We can't visit Rome without visiting the Colosseum and Roman Forum.  Both are covered as one admission with the Roma Pass.  In order to visit the Colosseum, an appointment is needed.  After finishing off some gelato, there might be time to do The Traveling Professor's Pilgrim's Walk of Rome.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
