Roma 1...

It seems a long time ago, what with the week and a half of  intense lurgy that followed.

I got to the airport OK; no delays or mishaps. I was all wibbly, of course, as per usual, and my mobility's not good at present.

It was spare, of course, with NO TV in the rooms, and you had to share the bathroom, but quite comfy (if you like a hard mattress, which I do; others were not so keen.) I could have done with a decent brekkie...No hot table stuff, like the scrambled eggs I was hoping for; just stale rolls or cornflakes, and dry fruit . Coffee was quite good, though. I don't think I'd want to stay there again, as it's too out of the way, but it was certainly worth checking out. The nuns were quite charming and helpful, too.
The gardens are pretty,and the view of St. Peter's down the hill is lovely.
