Casa Howard B&B
One of your JourneyWomen
guests wrote this about our B&B --' I'd like to recommend
Casa Howard (B&B) at 149 Via Sistina, Rome, Italy.
This small B&B is located on the second floor of a
well secured building, just around the corner from the
Piazza Barberini. There are five funkily decorated rooms
with ensuite bathrooms. A breakfast of freshly squeezed
orange juice, yoghurt, fruit and freshly baked sweet goods
is available, served in your room. The location is within
walking distance of many attractions, such as the Spanish
Steps and Trevi Fountain. Many buses and the subway are
just a block away on Barberina. We stayed for three days
and enjoyed it very much. The staff was helpful in providing
tourist information. The price - 200 euros per room per
night was less than other hotels in the area.
In the city center
of Rome is our women-only Guesthouse. Located in a 16th
century convent within the International Women Center,
our guesthouse is few minutes away from the major sightseeings.
Single, double, quadruple rooms and dorms overlook an
inner cloister, the Gianicolo hill or the typical Roman
red roofs. Free internet.
tip! Cruise ships docking in
inexpensive way to see Rome from a cruise ship when docking
in Civitavecchia. This is information that cruise ship
companies will never tell you. The cost of the ground
excursion organized by cruise companies (probably only
a bus to and from Rome) is usually about $80 while a short
walk from the port along a palm lined boardwalk brings
you to the Civitavecchia train station. You
can purchase a BIRG ticket (daily regional ticket) for
nine euro (about $US11) that entitles passengers to a
roundtrip to Rome, free access to all buses, metro and
return to Civitavecchia in time for your cruise ship's
departure. Trains leave every 30 minutes and bring you
to Termini Station, in the heart of Rome and well connected
to metro and bus lines.

ED. NOTE: If you choose to do this
be very sure that you will be able to get back to the
ship on time. If you are late and not on one of the ship’s
official excursions the captain is not obliged to wait
for you. Make sure you have good directions from the port
to the train station. Be sure to validate your train ticket
on the platform before boarding the train. If you don't
you can be fined about 25 euro p.p.
