Rome vacation

We are planning a family trip to Rome for one week in March. Does anyone have info about the Bettoja Hotel Mediterraneo? How about the neighborhood around the Termini Train station? Is this a suitable area to stay in terms of safety? How about the distance between the major tourists attractions in Rome? This is our first trip to Rome so we have many places to visit.
Anyone have a special place they found interesting?

RE: Rome vacation

Not sure about the safety in the areas that you mentioned. I believe we visited all the major attractions in Rome and traveled via taxi to each. We also did a night bus tour of the city. St. Peter's/Vatican was the highlight of the trip for me. I also enjoyed the Callistus Catacombs among the other obvious major tourist attractions in Rome. The Trevi Fountain is also beautiful especially at night.
I certainly wouldn't try to drive on your own. The traffic is horrible and very unlike in the states. They drive very fast, don't have specific lane usuage, and zip in and out and pass without a thought. Parking would also be a problem.
I hope you have a great time. Check in and let us know how it was.

RE: Rome vacation

how was your trip?
i just found this post, so i cann't help you plan.
I would have suggested a snack on top of st. peter's.
some time around the spanish steps. a trip to the market at campo fiori. definitely a trip around the forum and the coliseum. don not walk along the trails down along the side of the tiber-- a land of drug users & crime. The borghese
gardens are wonderful. when i went to rome it was for the big city life so i didn't do much of the historical stuff.
